You can use this template for tracking: https://bit.ly/TournamentSSData (you need to make your own copy)Those who actually play on Beta and want to contribute to figuring out the tournament formula can start collecting data on new squad sizes. This would be vs the same factors that are in play for the Spire (I'd be surprised if those are different), so that means # of mandatory techs activated, total number of AWs, regular and premium expansions and max relic boost for small cities. Also, progression of squad sizes through provinces and stars.
The columns on the left should look familiar for those who have seen the Spire calculator. nStar is star-level (1 to 6), nProv is province number (1+), TSSo is own squad size, TSSe is enemy squad size.
Progression within the same player/same tournament is fixed (just as in the Spire), so we only need to collect one row per city per tournament. Ideally, the squad sizes would be from your last 1* province (to reduce rounding errors). As usual, you can send me results via PM or post here. I prefer PM as these are easier to track.
