I know it's complicated how national power algorithm works... so much complicated that not even the devs dont get it. In the image i have uploaded contains data from server merge 70-84. More specifically it illustrates the number of players each kingdom has in top 50, 100 and 500 in realm Leaderboard based on power and top 100 based on lifetime honor.
Also i have to mention that Icarum and Skarn are allies since the beginning of the merge vs Hyral and the war is pretty much one sided, Hyral is struggling keeping those 23 cities not able to do much since the enemies outnumbers them and with the current meta no defence stands a chance.
-Hyral has on average 4-5 Guard Tower on each city
-Skarn and Icarum have on average 19-20 Guard Tower on each city
So here is the million dollar question: How the f@k Hyral stands on top on National power with 127m while Skarn and Icarum have only 61m and 67m???
Lilith should address this issue immediately, IMO power from Guard Towers should also been included on National power along with the rest of the data.
