However, despite my inexperience with the game, it seems to me that you're missing something in your considerations. For the sake of argument, I'll assume your math is correct above (not necessarily the formulas, but just the calculations). If you take your 4 TC cards (two bot, two alt mode) for a total attack of 226K, you're using 4 cards, with an attack value of 56,500 per card. If you scan them and get 204K, you're using 2 cards, with an attack value of 102K per card. You've also got two other card slots to fill, and again with an assumption, that would likely exceed the gap you've then created. It seems that if you've got cards that are maxed, you should be able to fill in the gap and exceed the 226K you would have had with the 4 TCs.
Again, new player, not sure about the math behind it all, but 102 is obviously greater than 56 and if you've got some comparable cards (save 10K value), then you could exceed your 4 TC scenario. Maybe it depends on the values in your deck...? If your maximum value for any 4 cards is less than 226K, I'd stick with the four TCs.
Obviously, if I'm looking at this completely backwards, let me know. Trying to figure out some of the intricacies of the game.
Indeed, what you are saying is correct. But here's the things to consider: This is a short term scenario. You've only got 7 days. Once you transcan your cards, they go back to level one. So now you are losing time in your short term scenario leveling your cards back up. Your total damage output will be severly reduced while your leveling your newly scanned card.
Number 2, Regardless of whats in your deck, there is only one 5X damage card per episode. So once you scan both of your TC's, whatever you replace the two cards with, its unlikely they will be able to equal that damage output of a non-scanned 5X card.
What you are saying is surely true for the long term scenario. Having the highest attack value per card is best. But in a short term, episode scenario in which 5X and 3X attack are in play, I'm not certain that its better to scan your cards, there by reducing the amount of cards in your deck that get the bonus and losing time while you level in the process as opposed to leaving your cards unscanned and having more cards in your deck that get the bonus.
I am going to transcan my cards to experiment. Let it be known that prior to the transcan my deck power with the recommended setting is 8182.
