    Boss War "Auto Challenge" Isn't Working Properly

    So granted, I haven't ran exhaustive tests because I don't feel like blowing hundreds of gems testing it out. But the new "Auto Challenge" feature in Boss War does not appear to be working properly - it's consistently returning lower damage results than manually running through each individual fight on 4x Auto.

    I ran my first Boss War this week on 4x auto. I got 15.2M. The rest of the week, I kept using Auto Challenge and kept getting results around 14.1-14.4M - approximately 6-8% lower. So I decided to run it again on 4x Auto...and lo and behold, I got 15.2M again. Then I reset and tried Auto Challenge again...and right back to the ~14.2M range. So to summarize...

    4x Auto: ~15.2M
    Auto Challenge: ~14.1-14.4M

    Auto Challenge appears to be consistently returning lower damage outputs than 4x Auto.

    Well auto challenge is just an option for those who don't want to spend 30 minutes or more just trying to clear it. I am glad that they even have this feature.

    It's all "auto" challenge, just that this new feature does all the math without you having to watch every team play out. That said, I don't notice any difference. Sometimes I get lower scores just like I do if I suffer through each team, and sometimes I get higher scores.

    If you want that extra 1-2k coins then go ahead and manually auto fighting them, you also forgot that while manually auto fighting, you can actually retreat (which I'm sure you do) if someone in your team dies early.

    I didn't retreat when I conducted these tests. 4x auto (with no retreats) will always give you higher results than Auto Challenge. There's no logical reason for that, except for improper implementation of the feature. You should be getting similar results, because they're meant to be the same thing - the only difference being that Auto Challenge doesn't show you the fight simulations.

    Are you sure? Have you actually been checking? Because ever since I started paying attention (the last 10 days or so), 4x Auto is always higher than Auto Challenge - without exception.

    But how can you know that if you had used auto it wouldn't be 12.5mill? This is just confirmation bias

    I get that with manual, you have some timing control over ults and such, so score may come out different, possibly better--but also, possibly not. Anyway, I've been playing auto and have been ranking high, usually top 5. Last round I was #1 place. All by using auto challenge, cuz I don't want to spend time on something not worth the time to me.
