Need clarification on Hero experience

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm currently playing in the midsummer x1 and as a result of a battle where my hero (alone) killed 1 mouse, 1 spider, and 1 wild boar, I got 3 experience points.

    Now, my understanding was that experience gain is based on crop consumption, which in this case is 4.

    I wrote to the support and this is the answer they gave:

    Sadly this is due to rounding of experience. very few battle end in whole numbers but for simplicity's sake we call everything a whole number.

    The battle gave less than a whole number and was rounded down resulting in less than expected exp being given to you

    If the value is .5 or less it is rounded down if it is .6 or more it is rounded up to the next whole number

    Unfortunately, these battles have been confirmed as correct

    As I am back to Travian after many years I tried to understand their point but found nothing on guides/forums/etc. Rounding is mentioned only when multiple heros defend, and I really cannot understand what's going on here.

    Can someone please help me with this?

    Thank you in advance
