    @Asayre is the below chart still correct? I was adjusting my points in Thaumaturge today and 51 points = 19% and 52 points = 19.24%.

    Thank you so much! You are a genius and I appreciate all you do!

    Jump points apply to most percentage based stars except for those that apply a cost reduction. List of current jump points

    I believe it's because 51 points is not acutally 19% but more like 18.9something rounded up in the UI. So you need to go to 52 to get the jump point.

    For champion points calculated in percentages, only the whole number counts. So the term "jump point" refers to when you spend enough CP in a star to change up to the next whole number. You "jump" or ignore the numbers after the decimal point. For example, 12.04% or 12.68% should be read only as 12%. You need to spend a certain number of CP to "jump" to 13%. Due to diminishing returns, you might have to spend a lot of CP to get only another 1% increase in that star. The jump points chart shows how many CP it takes to get from one whole number percent to the next.

    51 points is 18.9975, assuming the formula is (2*x-x*x)*25 where x is 51/100.

    oh! so my guessing over the years was right, i never trust .x% values because most games round them, glad that still applies
