## Scaling

The Logistic Scaling for and are similar, with both having a midpoint of of 25000 and a scaling factor of -1/5000. The difference is that Elusiveness scales to a maximum value of 100, while Rarity scales to a maximum value of 7000. Elusiveness E scales with crab popuation C with the following formula:

${\displaystyle E=100\times {\frac {1}{1+e^{\frac {C-25000}{5000}}}}}$

Rarity R scales with crab popuation C with the following formula:

${\displaystyle R=7000\times {\frac {1}{1+e^{\frac {C-25000}{5000}}}}}$
