    @Katipunero: Updated to use Fights in the sheet, though typically use Runs being a single PvP Fight/Nexus attempt vs a Bar being your entire Energy/Stamina.

        Made some calculations:

        If we are getting ready for the PVP with 6 stamina ready, you can get approxametly 143 fight in a 2 day PVP, and 215 in a 3 day one (NO SLEEP!). 6K Banner is 298 fights based on the sheet. In a 2 day one you need 155 further fights, what is 25 refill, what is 75 gems. In a 3 day PVP it's 83 further fights, so 14 refill, so 42 gems. With 6K banners, you get at least TOP 1K, what is 35 gems, ladder is another 40? If i remember good. So, if we are rocking awesome, never lose a fight, we can get the T1000, T500 toons, and a BP every time, for free. This is least likely tho, so we should calculate with at least 100 gems, for a little sleep, but still, there are solid toons in T500, and a BP is just a lot more awesome now.

          If you gonna go for regular sleep deprivation, you gonna end up just like Uldred

            Well, weekdays, i think i sleep 7-8 hours, what is 3-4 refills. A 2 day PVP it's +24 gems. I already added 15 for the 75, because just why not, this is exactly the "error" i calculated in. I just wanted to point out, that you can get a lot of things, for almost free.

              i would still like to add tho, that "free" in these calculations is always a bit misleading. yes its free if you look at net cost/gain in the sense of you finish the event with the same gem count that you started it with.

              but at the same time, by going only nats (with maybe 1-2 refills at the end if it gets you accross a reward threshhold), you could have farmed about 50 gems. so that is the actual "cost" of the stuff you picked up by finishing the ladder.

              now dont get me wrong, that is still a pretty good deal in terms of payout/gems. a leg wisp, several runes, additional gold/XP, and most importantly a leg toon and a BP. with the pack revamp coming up the BP alone is worth more than 50 gems. but its not like youre completely throwing these away for no reason, by not doing it. which would be the case if they were truly "free" aka if the prize + ladder gems actually covered your refills all the way up to 6k and youd still walk away with 50ish gems net gain.

              but the main factor keeping people away from finishing the ladder in every single PvP event is the time investment anyway and not the gems. at least for me it is.

                  The document is in "View only" mode right now, so we can't edit it at present.

                    I don't remember who is currently the owner of this document. I put in an access request via the sheets so hopefully the owner will see it and fix it. Let's give it a week and if it's still locked up, there are ways we can take it over to change the owner.

                    In the meantime, if you go to "File-Make a Copy..." You should be able to make a copy of it to your local Google Drive (if you have one) which will be editable for you.

                      Just wondering if anyone has ability to verify the sheet is working correctly now that max stamina is 8 and refills are 4 gems. I've put in a few test numbers and while the refill cost is set at 4 in the sheet, I'm pretty sure it still thinks we're only getting 6 stamina per refill. For what it's worth, think there's a minor bug in there at the very low end also, try getting the total gem result from 0 to 275 banners Likely affects no one but noticed it while I was testing. Thank you!

                      Edit: I think leaving at three gems per refill will still give you close the correct total gem answers, but is a little confusing to calculate how many actual refills it is now.

                        I don't have access to the Spreadsheet anymore. It says I need to ask for permission, which I did many many days ago.
                        Is the file still working? Should I apply for this permission elsewhere?

                            What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                            It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                            To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                            What happens if I break the rules?
                            At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                            Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                            For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                            Posting Suggestions
                            In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                            1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                            Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                            2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                            3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                            4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                            5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                            6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                            7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                            In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
