**Where Can I View My Reward Points?**

Reward Points for a specific battle can be viewed on the *Battle Results *screen. Simply hover over the icon next to *RP earned, *as seen below:

The above battle results are used in the example below to manually determine/confirm results.

**How to Manually Calculate Reward Points**

**To calculate your Reward Points:**

**Step 1: **After a battle, locate your rating to calculate your base Reward Points.

*Note: The rating in the calculations is capped to the max rating of your league.*

**Step 2**: Multiply your Rating by the percent of Starter Cards used (if any):

*If no starter cards are used, simply multiply by 1 or just proceed to the next step.**The effect of starter cards on this calculation can be found here: Why didn't I receive any SPS for my ranked battle?*

In this battle, 1 out of 5 cards were starter cards (20% or 0.2), so we first subtract 0.2 (20%) from 1; this gives us 0.8 (80%), which we will multiply by our rating, then cube that resulting product:

**Rating of 1798 x 0.8, cubed =***2,976,041,775.1*

**Step 3: **Divide the resulting number by 10,000,000:

**2,976,041,775.1 /****10,000,000****=****297.6041**

**Step 4:** Add up your bonuses:

**20% for Gold Cards =***20%***4% for Guild Bonuses =***4%*- Because we want to retain the base amount and add these percentages to it, sum 1 (100%) and the previous values
**(1 + 0.2 + 0.4 =**. This sum*1.24*)**(1.24)**is used in the next step.

**Step 5**: Multiply the results of your rating calculation by your total bonuses. For a 24% total bonus (Gold Foil 20% and Guild Bonus 4%), we use the aforementioned **1.24 **in our calculation:

**297.6041 x 1.24 =***369.029084*

**Step 6**: Multiply the results of the previous calculation by your staked SPS reward multiplier (listed as *SPS Boost* in the RP summary shown above):

**369.029084 x 1 ≈***369.029084*

**Step 7**: Multiply the previous result by 100% minus any low-level card penalties. For a 20% low-level card penalty, we will subtract 20% from 100%, giving us 80% (0.8) to multiply by:

**369.029084 x 0.8 ≈***295.2232672*

The results seen in the game will be approximations, as the values may be rounded to a certain number of decimal places; in the example above, the player earned **295** **Season Points / Reward Points ** from this battle.
