Question about incubator cycle

can someone explain this incubator cycle diagrams

1 is this incubator cycle affected by losses?

  1. what does the x4 on the side mean?
  1. No but it IS affected if you battle and win with no incubator slots free. I.e. you would miss whatever incubator you would be getting.

  2. It means it repeats 4 times.

Regarding 1, the cycle is not affected if you keep battling once you have no available place for an incubator. I often do this and the following day, I always have my sub-cycle (3h, 15m, 3h, 3h and 8h or 12h or 24h). Every day, I run a sub-cycle, so I would have noticed if it got out of sync.

so does that mean that first i will have to do 8 battles for 8 15m incubator , 24 3h incubator and 8h incubators then 8 15m incubators, 24 3h incubators and 8 12h incubators(equivelant to rare incubator) then the same moving forwards

No, the first line is: 3hr - 15m - 3hr - 3hr 8hr

You do that cycle 4 times, then move to the next line.

Basically you do the first line 9 times before getting to the rare inc line.

The cycle is as follow:

3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h

3h-15m-3h-3h-8h

3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h

3h-15m-3h-3h-12h

3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h

3h-15m-3h-3h-24h

3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h
3h-15m-3h-3h-8h

3h-15m-3h-3h-12h

Then you go back at the start of the cycle.
If you run a sub-cycle per day, you get a 24h incubator every 20 days.

thats what i mean by the cycle first cycle does 3 15 3 3 8 x4

welcome to the forums thanks a lot!!

Ok, the way you explained it was not particularly clear. But the images above show exactly what it is.

So , basically it doesn’t matter how much you battle the cycle stays the same? , I had heard that before but never knew for sure, thanks for this, so long as none of you mind may I post this on our discord please

R u sure the cycle continues when no incubators slots are available. If that’s the case, it would be quite helpful so u can shorta speed along the process

I was always under the impression if you win with no slots free you skip that incubator. I’m sure I read about that a few years ago.

I can’t be 100% certain though as some others say otherwise.

Definitely not, otherwise you could skip some incubators without spending hard cash. The only way to speed up the cycle is to spend hard cash to speed up incubators. Most efficient use of hard cash anyway but still you can trust Ludia not to leave a loophole when it involves their revenues.

Or watch the adverts, I think I’ve heard it say it’s a maximum of 6 per day ?

Yeah it’s 5 or 6, which hardly helps at all in the long run.

Yeah I just checked by doing some battles and it’s not the case and I also agree that’s the best use of cash assuming that you keep on battling
