Research Note: Due to Friday 2013- Jan- 11 Portalpalooza, this is the “Vexis-Bj Portal Schedule, ST” second edition.

ST(Server Time) & EST (Eastern Standard Time)


Edit,
Research Note: weekly schedule with each day of the week being unique from the other days, but the same each week.
Example: Monday is different from Tuesday, but every Monday is the same schedule. Each portal has a 21 hour cool down. Once per week, each portal appears twice in a 24 hour period. Thank you Gemma.

Thank you Doomherald, I am sure the Smartphone Users for ET (Eastern Time) appreciate your post (see link at top of this post).

Re: World Event: Incursion Portals

Yesterday, my esimate is that I needed to spend a bit more then 70 Energy to boost a 2-hour Portal to 3rs level, which is when Flux-dropping Elite mobs can start to appear. So we can perhaps assume 18-19 encounters for each level, or possibly 17 for 1st and 20 for 2nd.

Today I started with full Energy as a 1-hour Portal opened, and during that hour, spending my front-loaded Energy, natural recharge (not boosted in any way) and 4 Gold to buy an additional 12 Energy, I managed to take the Portal to max (4th) level. I did not notice when it hit 4th, but presumably it was late in the process.

42 Energy is 21 encounters, but for some weird reason (bug not reported) entering this Portal for the first time subtracted 6E, not 2. Leaving and entering it again later required the normal 2E.

Anyway, front-loaded 19 encounters. Bought 6 more w. Gold. Natural recharge over 60 minutes is 24E or 12 more encounters, so the conclusion is that you need less than 37 encounters (78E) to take a 1-hour Portal to 4th level.

Assuming it is linear, it could be 24E for each level, so that after 36 encounters you reach 4th level.

Not sure if I mentioned this above (I don't like this smartphone interface much) but I did not notice any difference between Portal lvl 3 and 4, e.g. Elites being less rare, as one might expect. Then again, my sample size for lvl 4 is probably tiny.

I came into a 1 hour Portal when it had about 40 minutes left. I was fully recharged with 42E, and a short while before the timer expired, I managed to get the Portal up to 3rd level.

One oddity. I had just gone into a 2 hour Portal for the first time, when it had been in existence for a bit under an hour. My firsr encounter was one Elite mob and one normal mob. The Elite dropped a Flux. I thought maybe the Portal had levelled up without me, but that was not the case. It was still lvl 1. After that I got 20-22 completely normal non-Elite encounters, before I ran out of Energy.

We use the Lockbolt raid to notify our guild when a portal announcement has been made. Looking back through our guild news, I noticed something. All of the portal announcements were made at either 3, 6, 9 or 12 EST with their corresponding portals appearing at 3:15, 6:15, 9:15 or 12:15 EST.

I only have a couple days worth of data - does anyone have any data to refute that?

I'm also theorizing that the interval between portals is related to the duration of the previous portal. We had a volatile 1 hour portal at noon EST. 3 hours later, we have a wavering 3 hour portal at 3 pm EST. If the interval between portals is 3 times duration, I predict the next portal will be at 12 am EST (5 am server).

Global Chat excerpt:

@VexisLarseker - or the Portal cool down is *2 duration. This would all Guilds to Schedule 2, 4 & 6 Raids, but give Mercs a trade off since Guilds would cluster there Raids at high levels. Also cut down on CoC & TSC abuse.
Edit, Research Note: actually 4 different portals with 21 hour cool down each. Each portal is spaced out to give 2, 4, and 6 hour gaps.

sequence appears to be Volatile, Unstable, Volatile, Wavering, repeat sequence.

Total sequence is 21 hours matching cool down on Holiday Gobin Spawn Areas. This would give you an [Edit: 7 day] schedule to plan Raids [redacted due to new data].

Edit,
Research Note: weekly schedule with each day of the week being unique from the other days, but the same each week.
Example: Monday is different from Tuesday, but every Monday is the same schedule. Each portal has a 21 hour cool down. Once per week, each portal appears twice in a 24 hour period. Thank you Gemma.

Actually an elegant solution for BoH World Event to make it an actual Real World - World Event.

Awesome work VexisLarseker!

If our theories are correct, then the next portal should be at 5:15 am server (12:15 am EST) and it should be a 1 hour volatile portal.

If that turns out to be right, then it will be easy to create a long term portal schedule
