Combat Reference Guide [Updated 07/11]

Can someone at scopely please update this w all the new skills. Exhaust. Daze. Beheading. Crosshairs. All the dual specialist skill.

Well, I’d say:

  1. Even 250% to 300% is a pretty big difference–20% big. It’s a toon going from 5k attack to 6k attack.
  2. Even though I detest and avoid this arena for other reasons(*), it still may affect my team-building and/or my attack strategy. I’m sure you’d agree you have a reasonably good eye for your toons that you’ve had a long time on whether they’ll get a kill or not. Which could easily affect whether you attack an enemy with a weaker or stronger toon first (with the goal being to conserve the second attack, with maximal damage, for a second defender). Just one hypothetical.
  3. Without devoting more brainpower to this issue, which I hope is cabined to this one small instance, I wouldn’t be surprised if this has, will, or currently appears in other parts of the game that you may end care about more.

Fact of the matter, it’s lazy writing, and it’s the simple difference between “additive” and “multiplicative” numbers, which everyone at a game company likely understands.

and edit to add: one shouldn’t need to visit forums/google to understand the meaning of in-game tooltips.

(*) the main reason being that every trait except red (already commonly accepted as the “best” trait) is messed with, while red is just boosted further versus green (commonly accepted as the best “accessible” trait). When this mode came out, I assumed it would vary every time, and it doesn’t. But that’s neither here nor there in this thread I suppose–don’t want to derail a helpful thread.

What does crosshair do?

targets under the influence of crosshair become decapitated when dead
