    All scores shown here are estimates/not guaranteed, please use charts at your own risk. I am working on figuring out how the scores are actually calculated.

    UPDATE (12/17/14): Changing the title to discussion (it's more of a discussion really...) I also found this link to calculate your score by dungeon : http://tamadra.com/s-rank -- It looks pretty accurate. Taking out the list of dungeons as you can find those on pdx

    The entries that i've highlighted in blue are values that I've taken from screenshots of peoples scores and I believe should be accurate for every dungeon.

    Average Combo Score : 20*combo^4
    Average Rare Score : 75.83*(10-average rarity)^4


    Let me know if you've figured out a more accurate way of calculating these.


    In order to calculate your turn score, it appears that it is 40,000 points - 2500 for every additional turn taken

    For example:
    Breakers 5 turn clear = 40k points
    Breakers 9 turn clear = 40k points - 4 extra turns * 2500 = 30k points

    Rarity seems to be the same calculation for every dungeon, again only the blues are confirmed.

    TEAM COMPOSITIONS

    Although it's possible to S Rank basically every dungeon with your regular team, unless you're a god at comboing (8.0+ depending) then you're probably like me and need another way to get the points. Sweeping the whole dungeon guarantees 40k points, but even that is not enough. A simple way is to lower the average rarity of your team. For example, this valk team I used was a really easy S rank in the Breakers dungeon.

    [IMG=250x400]http://i.imgur.com/LIjtgD6.jpg[/IMG]

    The general consensus seems to be 9x spike teams (, , etc...) with all 1 star subs You can NOT just have empty spots on your team, having 7 star leaders with no subs gives you an average rating of 7. These team compositions works for dungeons that aren't too difficult like Breakers or Watery Temptress. However, depending on the score needed and average rarity you may add a few higher rarity subs.

    Possibly more team comps to come...

    RE: How to S rank Evangelion?

    Of the 140k score you need, you're getting at most 20k from the total turns on this dungeon (so many mobs with 600k DEF...), so you need to find at least 120k points from rarity and average combos.

    I got an S score on my alt with Horus and a mix of good subs and low star subs... and a high combo average.

    Thanks for the chart that definitely helps, I was wondering what team comps people came up with to S rank as well. I'm guessing all the combo spikes work well?

    Forgive me, but I just jumped on here to find out what "Score:-" meant on the Legend tab, haven't see that before. Is this what you are talking about with "S" and "B" rank? Is there a thread that talks about this?

    It just got added to NA in the recent patch and the EVA collab is the first one to get this system. Basically you play the hardest difficulty and a score is calculated (S, A , B , C, etc...) and if you get an S rank you get a free tamadra. It's calculated based on rarity of your team, avg combos, and turns taken.

    Well average rarity really is the AVERAGE of your teams rarity...

    I tried doing it with a team of only 3 members + friend leader, but the empty slots were ignored instead of being counted as 0's.

    I'm apparently having difficulty reading the charts. What does the TR stand for?

    Also, does your friend lead count towards your average rarity?

    Turns required I think.

    I did it like this.

    I got the invade the first round (of course it would show up when I'm doing this stupid thing). And on round 5, I skyfalled a hard 13 combo and Yomi actually smashed right through the defense. I lol'd pretty hard. Max skilled Yomi gave me another 9 combo using CTW on the boss. And this is the result. It was really not fun.

    TR is total rarity, AR is average rarity so average is total/6 (assuming you use every team slot)

    and yes

    RE: How to S rank Evangelion?

    This is really useful! Thanks :)
    I copied Vorpal's build (although i used U&Y instead of Kirin)
    I used my Ares even though he's red because I thought I'd need that extra damage for the boss stage. (I really didn't)

    for future reference, does that chart of rarity and combos hold true for all dungeons? Or will each future dungeon have unique values?

    I believe the numbers are the same but the total you need to S rank is different. So short dungeons like the pirate one probably require less.

    So I just S ranked with valk/valk leads shynee and 3 1star monsters that people used with 3.3 rarity. Had to spend a stone though cause I couldnt kill the boss fast enough. Worth the tamadra imo though!

    The valk strategy works pretty well if you get a star on the first two floors. Dumping your spare +eggs into a shynee doesn't hurt either. Shynee has way better weighed stats than the masks, too!

    Can you do this more than once for tamas, or only one tama per dungeon?

    BTW for people looking for the best stats out of 1* cards check out the Fey series monsters like Kelpie/Treant etc 1* goblins are decent too.
