Thread: What does "API" stand for?

  1. Default What does "API" stand for?

    From the wiki:
    Defeating Alpha Vincent in a duel requires an API of 500 (he can be beaten with an API of 475, but you will not always get a victory on him until after 500), including hero and equipment.
    What's an API?

    Sounds like attack power. Pretty sure you needed some 500 atack to beat Vincent.

    I am not sure what each letter in there means though.

    I assume it's your total attack or smth similar. Basically it seems to mean "effective attack", although that term's meaning itself has evolved with the different bonus stats and pierce.

    By a quick google search I fond this link: http://www.castleageforums.com/cforu...-calculate-API
    Which seems to indicate that, although it's still not really clear.

    I had never seen it before, it's probably never been really used.


    I also don't think it's really important here anyway, because who cannot beat Alpha Vincent nowadays?



    Edit:
    Ofc I've been beat by zserg and his fewer words again

    API probably means Attack Power Indicator, if I had to guess.

    Knowing CA players, the "i" stands for index. We sure love our indices

    The forum's search function needs improvement. Ran a search for "API" and "what is API" and I got zilch.

    Well yeah if you search for this you get:
    "The following errors occurred with your search
    The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search:
    what, is, API"

    So to begin with you can't search for words of 3 or less letters.

    I only use the forum "advanced search" for the "Search titles only" option, or sometimes to search by username.

    Otherwise just use google, there are more possible search operators, and you can search only on forums by typing site:http://www.castleageforums.com/ keyword1 keyword2 keyword3 etc
