Discrepancy to R&D Agent Research Point Formula

Post by Byron Thani »

There are 2 different formulas referenced in the wiki for the 'research points per day' you get from an R&D agent.

Datacore farming page (https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Datacore_farming):
"The formula for how many research points you'll get in a day is: (1 + (20 + Negotiation*5)/100) * (Agent Skill + Science Skill)^2"

Research missions page (https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Research_missions):
"RP/day = (1 + (20 + 5*N + AS)/100) * (SS + AL)^2"

The second formula includes the agent standing in the formula (AS). I *think* the second formula is the correct one (based on my in-game R&D agent stats).

Can someone confirm?

Thanks
I ordered the Code Red.

I checked mine and they all conform to the second formula that includes agent standing (including your bonus from connections as mentioned).

Thanks for confirming. I have edited the "Datacore farming" page to show the correct formula.
