The spreadsheet seems... excessive? With my defensive loadout it is 42,103/78,372. I have triple checked that my entries are correct, but have not done the manual math.
Chimæra
im atk - 53,984 and def - 49,990
so tbh idk, i think i put stuff wrongly.
but hey, zsergy post his keep here to get hit... so here's my donation

First, 1 loadout should give you 1 number (like 78,372), not 2 (like 42,103/78,372).
When you're attacking, only the effective Attack number matters and when defending only the effective defense matters.
If you still find the number(s) excessive, I believe it means you're underestimating Pierce and Resistance impact.
I suppose the reason why you're surprised about how high your eAtk and eDef are is because you're used to other much weaker values from the outdated calculators you've been using.
Not because they contradict your PvP experience. Is that right?
Keep in mind that ofc, everyone has pierce and resistance, so everyone gets their huge boosts to their Atk and Def.
I'm convinced that if you find someone with 70k raw def (no resistance) and attacked him with your eAtk of 78k you'd see you'd win even though your raw attack is much lower.
It's not possible to find such a target, but it is however possible to do other tests confirming the spreadsheet values.
To finish, I'll say that the spreadsheet can't determine duels outcomes precisely, because it is determined by the net difference between the attacker Pierces values and the defender Resistances values. And when you're attacking, you don't know the defender's values.
For instance, at a relatively close strength between the attacker and defender, for instance 100k eAtk for the attacker and 90-95k eDef for the defender, the attacker may lose. It could happen if the defender has higher resistance, because of the threshold bonus in favor of the defender from the net pierce/resistance values.
If you however do know both players' exact attack/def and pierce/resistance values, you can determine the outcome of the duel with a spreadsheet similar to this one, by entering both players' values into it (you'd have the net difference in pierce/resistance with that)
You should get even higher numbers using the spreadsheet.
You're probably also underestimating Pierce and Resistance impact
I have been using the spreadsheet in Elandal's old post (I think it was done by him).
The difference between the new and old spreadsheet is huge, by 25% difference in final number calculation.
For example, new spreadsheet would calculate eDef = 75K, old xls eDef = 100K.
The difference lies in the methodology for pierce/resist calculation.
