Minion count information - W.I.P.

  • Max amount of farm you can achieve in 10 minutes

    Minion waves spawn every 30 seconds (6 minions)
    Minion waves with siege cannon minion spawn every 3 waves (7 minions)
    Minion waves spawn AFTER 1 minute and 30 seconds into the game (1.5 minutes)

    1.5 minutes = 3 waves, thus
    10 minutes normally = 20 waves (-3) = 17 total waves
    Out of the 20 waves, there are 6 waves that contain 7 minions (waves 3,6,9,12,15,18)
    However, wave 3 is gone because it doesn't exist (minions spawn at 1.5 minutes in) -> Waves 1, 2, and 3 are gone

    20 waves (total) - 6 waves (7 minions) = 14 waves (6 minions)
    14 waves (6 minions) - 2 waves (first minute of game) = 12 waves with 6 minions
    6 waves (7 minions) - 1 wave (last half minute of 1.5 minutes of game) = 5 waves with 7 minions
     
    Result - 10 minutes = (12 waves x 6 minions)+(5 waves x 7 minions) = 72+35 = 107 farm (minions)

    So in 10 minutes, the max amount of farm you can achieve is 107.


  • Max amount of farm you can achieve in 20 minutes

    Easy to calculate using the previous note; felt like adding to make it more convenient.
    For anyone who asks: No, you cannot just add another 10 minute wave calculation to the first note because there is a calculation error in between, you'll end up being off by 1 minion count.

    20 minutes - 40 waves
    However, we know that 3 waves are gone from the 40 waves (2 of them being in the 6 minions wave, and 1 being in the 7 minions wave)

    40 waves consist of 13 waves that contain 7 minions.
    Thus, 40 - 13 = 27 waves that contain 6 minions
    27 waves - 2 "faulty" waves = 25 waves x 6 minions = 150 minions
    13 waves - 1 "faulty" wave = 12 waves x 7 minions = 84 minions

    Therefore, in 20 minutes, the max amount of farm you can achieve is (150+84) = 234 farm.
     

  • Max amount of farm you can achieve in more than 20 minutes

    This is where it becomes a little bit different.  
    When the timer ticks past 20 minutes, the siege cannon minion waves comes every OTHER wave (once every two waves)
    Thus, it's more frequent than the first 20 minutes of the game. 

    Therefore, we must add on our first 20 minutes of the game max farm onto whatever is after.
    Formula = 234 farm + (what we will calculate now)

    Since there will be 7 minions every other wave now
    Therefore, 10 minutes = 20 waves = 10 waves of each (6 and 7)
    So 30 minutes into the game = (30 - 20) = 10 minutes AFTER the first 20 minutes
    20 minutes + (10 minutes AFTER 20 minutes) = 30 minutes
    234 farm + (10 minutes)
    234 farm + [(10 waves x 6)+(10 waves x 7)] = 234 farm (first 20 minutes) + 130 farm (10 minutes after)

    I have conjured up a formula to calculate the max amount of farm after this 20 minute mark which is...
    234 + 13(x-20) 
    Where 234 is the first 20 minute farm, the 13 is the fixed variable, the x is the total amount of time, and the 20 is the first 20 minutes.

    Examples:
    30 minutes - calculated up there
    234 + 13(30-20) = 234 + 13(10) = 234 + 130 = 364 farm

    40 minutes
    234 + 13(40-20) = 234 + 13(20) = 234 + 260 = 494 farm

    56 minutes (to prove it works with other integers as well)
    234 + 13(56-20) = 234 + 13(36) = 234 + 468 = 702 farm
    To prove that it is 702 farm, let's calculate it step-by-step.
    20 minutes - 234 farm
    36 minutes after - 72 waves total - 36 waves of each - (36 x 6) + (36 x 7) = 216 + 252 = 468 
    234 + 468 = 702 

  • Introduction to farming gold

    Summoner's rift

    Melee minion gives 22 gold on its first wave, 23 gold on its second wave, then it increases by 1 every 5 minutes (10 waves).

    Caster minion gives 16 gold on its first wave, 17 gold on its second wave, then it increases by 1 every 5 minutes (10 waves).

    Siege minion gives 27 gold on its first wave, and it increases by 1 every 2-3 minutes (4-6 waves)
