This article aims to solve these questions:
1.How many weeks are needed to upgrade every buildings* to tier 7?
2.Can small clans afford tier 7 clan citadel?
*refer to upgradeable buildings: Citadel, Storehouse, Battlefield, Woodcutting, Mining, Firemaking, Smithing, Crafting, Summoning and Cooking.
Blueprint & Solution for Q1:
When a new spot built, need to wait whole week till it’s functional.
New building and upgrading are highlighted with green colors.
Tier 7 citadel can be achieved by week 12.
Here’s details of timetable and cost to feed curiosity.
Here's summary cost
In order to achieve tier 7 citadel as fast as possible, about 415 members (469*88.5%) are needed at week 11.
The total* refers to resource points needed. Based on previous assumption, each bar requires 4 resources points.
At week 17 and afterward, need 35,280 “actual” resources (not resource points). 35,280 divided by 270 (1/10 of tier 7 cap) is 131.
I assume manpower is perfectly allocated.
Solution for Q2:
The following calculation could be annoying, please bear with me or jump to the conclusion.
To sum up:
E.g. In order to upgrade to Tier 7 citadel, need at least 279 members. or need 363 members if not using minions (but why not)
In order to maintain upkeep of Tier 7 citadel, need at least 15 members.
The idea of “caps” is unnecessary. I think Jagex should let clan leaders themselves find the solutions to motivate clanmates, instead of setting up these rules. Clan citadel is determined to be biased against small clans under these rules.
On the other hand, a clan needs hundreds of members to upgrade, but just a few to maintain upkeep. If a small clan “borrow” members from other clans, it’s still possible to build a glorious citadel.
There’re many other players complaining the problem of “citadel vs small clan”. I prophesy Jagex is going to open their mind a little bit more, and tune the “caps”.
