Is it number of kills? last hits? Same as performance rating? :/

The same amount is awarded to everyone on the team (and maybe everyone in the game) as far as I'm aware.

So it's not exactly based on personal performance, but I'm not sure whether or not everyone's is taken into account.

I would like to know as well.

I've played 3 games so far. The first match my team received 38 points, 45 for the second, and 42 for the 3rd.

We won the first and third game and lost the second.

I don't think this is the proper subforum for this but we'd all really like to know this. It seems you get points regardless of whether you win or lose but not the same amount.

the most sensible measure would be length. i got 77 my first game for an hour long.

I wouldn't want the formula spreading through the community. It could lead to people playing way differently for the sake of obtaining Battle Points.

some basic information would be good about this. Can we get the calculation?

no, you cant. do some observational testing yourself if you're so concerned about it

well if it's length it's broken, cause we have no ff and people wood go afk farm and shit instead of finishing or just fountaing farming.

If it's anything like league, there will be a base amount, and diminishing returns. Plus, why waste time in a game when you can get the same amount of battle points or higher by starting a new one?

Moved to customization suggestions.

my third game gave me 140-150 battle points but still didn't get any items.
at least now we can level up our profiles just like those pro players.


i wonder if they'll allow the use of customization items for The International 2.

one point per minute, that's all

Nope, not even close. If the game length is only variable, I am really disappointed. So I'm sure it isn't.

If you played with your friends, did all of you get the same amount?

It's not length, I'm sure.
Here's my 2 cents, it may help:

Lost first game pretty fast. Got 20 points and item. Didn't check others. Played as Ogre Magi rather poorly.
Won second game. Was rather average, like 40 min. Got 74 point. Played as bh (mainly because my item was for him :D), did rather average.
Won third game. Was a long one, like 50-60 min. Also got about 70 points. Was enigma. Died quite alot, but hit some good blackholes, so had like 25 assists
Won 4th game. Was rather short, mb llike 30 min. Got also around 75 point. Checked opponents - they got around 35 points. Was viper, did pretty average, enemy team just got stopmed by teammates.

if length is the only measure, you are really disappointed, and because you would be really disappointed, you're sure that isn't the case? is this satire?

Can anyone tell me what is the purpose of BP accumulation anyway? More item drops the higher level you are?

you get a guaranteed item every level.

I think there is an optimal value for game time, like at 40 minutes = 75 BP...

Example: If your game last for 30 minutes you get around 60 points, and if it lasts 50 minutes, the same 60. This way you cant start many games of 1 minute (because you wont get any points), and cannot farm with a turtle team (2 hours game = few BP).

Another variable would be if you won or lost. If you won you get, say 50% more BP? (EDIT: Winning and losing teams get the same ammount, just checked.)

All numbers here are fictional and not even near what the real numbers are, only the idea.

I can't be this, or if it is it must be changed! It should check if you followed your role fuction deaths assists kills etc. And it should be different from player to player even if its on the same team.

Also you shouldve be able to loose BP

my first game was an hour long as well. i lost but got 71 points.

Garena or GG deja vu.

Kinda disappointing that battle points can only go up.

What I was expecting was the battle points kinda represents matchmaking rating or so, you can get better opponents
depending on your rating / battle level.

Currently battle level /points represents how much games you've played, i suppose. :/ don't know how they are calculated though.

It also says lvl 22, and says playername, therefor I assume its a bug of some sort. I seriosuly doubt anyone reached 22 in 2 days. Though its odd that it didnt goto level 99, maybe theres a cap?
