    [Guide]Riding and Driving a Bus.

    Bus Etiquette

    >Make sure you share control. (2 heads on the top right corner of sc2 window while in game.)
    >Reduce lag. Options(N), then press 최적화 at the bottom right of the popup. Most people also play with bg-off here.
    >Turn attacks off: (2nd row)
    공격정지: 취소 | 매직 | 레어 | 에픽
    Attack Stop: None | Magic | Rare | Epic
    Units that can attack should also be moved closer towards the centre or a corner when units don't pass.

    >Depending on whether you are a special sharing user or if the divine+ bought team exchanges, it may be a good idea to buy a few in the rookie tab. (25-30 total sends should be a safe number). A few points in unit lotto can also make self buses go more smoothly. You can use remaining sp max points in amateur gas revisions, pro rank revisions and gas lotto to farm gems.

    >You should write 수고하셨습니다 at the end of the game. It is the equivalent of gg. (typing gg is also acceptable)

    Riding a Bus

    1. Join kr-SLD chat channel. (Find the map in the arcade section and there should be a button to 'join chat').
    2. Look out for bus lobbies. They should look something like this: [lobby] 더파 셀프버스 111라컷 10만이하
    The description usually has a layout of Difficulty/Bus Type/Rounds/XP Cap

    Difficulty:
    The Final: 더파 (The most common, try to look for these for a quick final rune)
    Impossible: 임파 (Less common)
    Holic/Ultimate: 홀릭, 얼티 (Mid level promo difficulties)
    Hard/Inferno: 하드, 인페 (Low level promo difficulties are rarely done, you'll most likely need to ask for help which will be happily provided. We will probably also help with all you promo needs.)

    Bus Type
    버스: Bus (Tells you its a bus; if it isn't specified, usually its a sleep bus)

    숙면버스: Sleep Bus
    >In most cases you will be required to buy a set of 10s in a sleep bus. (To compensate for helpers).
    >You can even send 20 if you're feeling generous.
    >Afterwards you can just chill. Don't forget to enter capchas.

    셀프버스: Self Bus (Most common type, Requires you to buy units for the carry. I've been away for a while but meta should still be the same)

    >Buy 8s after r16
    >Make and send voidrays in the early game. (Shouldn't after r40 or if it feels like there's enough).
    >Send yetis. Prioritise making flowers.
    >Make and send nova parts. Prioritise stukovs over dominators as they will usually max tbio first.
    >Don't combine them into Novas too early since damage spread is preferred in the early game.
    >You can start combining if there is enough for 4-5+ novas.
    >Reminder to merge hells+ on their plat since many don't even bother making legends.

    (These are also applicable when you drive)
    Note*: Some drivers may grab other units.
    Note**: Sometimes they will specify how many hells//flowers/novas they want and then you can do w/e. (헬, 꽃, 노바)
    Note***: Drivers will usually tell when you can rest either by bunching all your units together and ping, grouping them all together or telling you in chat; possibly in English. If you can see the guy next to you X-ing, you can probably start doing that too.

    XP Cap
    The driver requests that you have below a certain amount of xp so that he will be eligible to gain bus xp.

    만: 10k
    이하: under.
    5만이하: under 50k, 10만이하: under 100k, 25만이하: under 250k etc.

    If it is unspecified, it is usually safe to join, unless you have crazy high xp at which point you should be farming in crit cults.

    Driving a Bus:

    This is a useful set of translations made by hyperkorean a few months ago. It was mainly geared towards driving but also contains other information. If you want something specific leave a comment in the thread. (Note: certain translations that appear here are not in the sheet)

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    There are also a convenient set of translations in the "Bus and Translations" sheet on "FVZ's Spec Planner" pinned on Cruxis Discord.

    Bus Stages

    In order to be eligible for bus XP (bxp) you will need x% more xp/sp than your passengers.

    Base amount = base xp + donor sp (friend referral/rune sp not included)

    Stage 1: Total Passenger xp < yourBase/3 (/6 for average pp)
    Stage 2: Total Passenger xp < yourBase/6 (/12 for average pp)
    Stage 3: Total Passenger xp < yourBase/11 (/22 for average pp)
    Stage 4: Total Passenger xp < yourBase/15 (/30 for average pp)

    eg with 1.2M base amount, you can carry up to a maximum of 400k xp (200k xp pp)

    Required XP

    1.1-1.2M total sp is a good place to start driving final buses. You will most likely reach 1.3M and bus level 4 at around the same time.

    You can also experiment with holic/ultimate buses when you are at 7-800k. These are easier to fill since they are promo difficulties and you will also be helping out newer players. You can try impossible with 900k-1M.

    Starting a game
    All buses should go 111 rounds minimum. Other difficulties can be found in the google sheet provided.
    *Tell people when its full with 3/3 or 마감. *Remember to open to public.

    ***Observe pub chat for any existing bus lobbies. People get really annoyed if you host a competing final bus.
    example lobbies:
    Final self, r111, <100k: [lobby] 더파 셀프버스 111라컷 10만이하
    Ulti self, r111 <60k: [lobby] 얼티 셀프버스 111라컷 6만이하

    Units
    Your initial build should start with 8 legends + 3 flowers. If it feels like you're struggling to carry with this amount then reduce the difficulty. Reduce the amount of legends or convert them to hells when appropriate. If you are struggling with the language barrier, you can just ask for hells and then finish the legends yourself.

    Useful translations: (More in google sheet)
    Roll and send # 1s at r1: 1라에 1뽑 #개 보내주세요
    Roll 8s at round 15: 15라에 8뽑 해주세요
    x hells, y flowers: x헬 y꽃
    no vorazun/artanis: 보라준/아르타니스빼고
    novas preferred: 노바 제일좋고요
    You can take a break now: 이제 쉬시면 됩니다
    You can take a break after r##: ##라운드 이후 쉴수 있습니다 (When I started, this was usually around r70)


    Other
    Vortex when timer starts with invulnerability if you don't have shield off. Not a big problem in 3p.
    If some people don't or forget to share control: 제어 부탁드립니다
    Ask for option if they forget: 옵션안에 최적화 부탁드립니다

    i don't understand the bus stage part.
    If if i have 1 million, how much sp can each of the passengers have?

    also,
    [Air Bus Gem] Drive 3 passengers to The Final Round 220 in bus stage 4

    Let's say i have 5 million SP, how much sp can passengers maximal have?

    SP is very. As mentioned above it is dependent on the base amount. (pre-rune bonus)
    Base amount = base xp + donor sp (friend referral/rune sp not included)

    Stage 1 w/ 1M base:.Max capacity = 1M/3 = 333333. Average = 166k pp
    Stage 4 w/ 5M base: Max capacity = 5M/15 = 333333. Average = 166k pp.

    Reduce these values by several thousand to account for xp gains during the game.

    (Coop is 3p now So its drive 2 passengers now. Average xp pp i still the same.)

    Seen a couple games advertised as "하풀벞" but was unable to figure out what it means. Can someone translate?
