I got a completly different proposal to add.

Bare with me if its a lousy idea ;)

Just for the skills aim and dodge.
Give a percentage of higher damage - lower damage in those skills for fortbattles ?

Example:

25aim = +1% weapon damage
50aim = +2% weapon damage
75aim = +3% weapon damage
.....
250aim= +10% weapon damage and cape it

25 dodge = -1% damage for the shot taken
50 dodge = -2% damage for the shot taken
75 dodge = -3% damage for the shot taken
....
250 dodge = -10% damage for the shot taken and cape it

No real feedback on the formula yet, but when reading the Wiki article for .net I wondered about this:
[SIZE=+1]Skills[/SIZE]
6 skills are important for fort battles affecting the chance to hit and chance to dodge. [highlight]No distinction between attacking and defending is made, all the skills affect both attackers and defenders in the same way.[/highlight]

SkillChance to HitChance to Dodge

Is there another formula in use on .net, or just wrong info in the Wiki?
(Stamina affects only attackers, both for shooting & dodging; Hiding affects only defenders for both shooting/dodging. At least that's the way it is on .DE worlds)

Somebody added that incorrect piece of info only recently (no, it wasn't me). Diggo has removed it :up:

I don't understand how probability of hitting the opponent interacts with probability the opponent dodge.
For example
player 1 chance of hitting 50 %
player 2 chance of dodging 40%

In which case player 1 hits player 2?
I suppose if 1 hits and 2 don't dodge that is 0,50 *(1-0,40)= 30%?
is it right?

It's not % but just a number.
Server roll the dice. If the attacker has 56 hit bonus, he has dice from 1 to 56. The defender has 65 dodge bonus. Then his dice is from 1 to 65. Then the server roll the dice and if the number of the attacker is higher than the defender, then the attacker makes a hit. If the number of the defender is higher than attacker, then defender dodges.

I think it's like this :p

d&d style? i'm not so sure it works like this

then,we can say fort battles are pure luck.

Skills will only raise the average of the roll,but considering someone is too unlucky or too lucky,his skills won't matter.I believe that there should be items that raise the minimum dice roll.You can't use a system but only a part of it.It makes it unstable and sometimes (like pure hp times) completely unfair

Umm, no, we can't. This technique is common across computing, including other parts of the game since the first beta versions. Given the two base values (player skills), it is possible to calculate the probability that the originally higher value remains so after such "randomisation". The challenge is to ensure a sufficient divide exists between the base values, so the desired probability is obtained. In this way it's possible to scale between completely random (each player has the same number of die faces) and near infinitely certain (one player has infinitely more increasing faces than the other).

The problem here has to do with the reverse-exponential formula, i.e. the 1*x[sup]0.4[/sup] bit. Over the weekend I built a calculator to figure out the build that would inflict the most damage against an infinite health HP tank before you died. Bugs notwithstanding, no exponent gave desirable results, so I think the game designer is going to devise an alternate solution.

I already suggested an approach following
Code:
                   ∑ relevant skills 
fortbattleSkill = ─────────────────── * constant
                      player level ¹

¹ eventually with an exponent slightly greater than 1
- did you discuss that internally?

Best results would be given if you equally distribute all attr/skill points on the classic skills;
The division by player level downgrades all those who haven't spent a single point on FB skills per level; and it compensates the big advantage of high level players over small ones a bit - strenghth of this compensation can be adjusted by the constant factor and the exponent

The game designers were presented with our two polling threads and all posts in it, yes.

4 battles so far under the new formula. I've been for long out of battles and lost old data.

I'm a soldier, 6200 hp.

1 defense, 3 attacks. My general feeling is I'm hiting more.

defense 1, mostly in my tower: 24 hits, 15 miss - 2 hits taken, 2 dodge
24 hits out of 39 shots is above my historical average (again, as general feeling since I lost old data)

atk 1: 21 hits, 12 miss - 19 hits taken, 18 dodge
this battle was unbalanced, 35 attackers, 42 defenders. Again I see my hits above historical average. And an improvement in dodging.

atk 2: 19 hits, 24 miss - 14 hits taken, 7 dodge
this is more likely old formula performance. A lot of misses in a row.

att 3: 28 hits, 19 miss - 13 hits taken, 17 dodge
and back to the new formula again with better performance.

I'm attacking with 140 leader, 157 stamina, 95 aim, 103 evasion. I got 30 skills free yet and a lot to reskill. But my overall impression is that my performance has improved with new formula, especially the hitting.

can't say anything about defense, since I changed skills after it.

old gg bonus

what you guys have to say about the cumulative gg bonus?

when GGs started, each one carrying a GG would give its bonus to the sector. If 2 or 3 were in the same sector, the bonus was very high. It was easy to kill all in a tower. But at that moment, HP wasn't an issue, it started long later.

so here goes the idea: bring back the cumulative sector bonus GGs give and let's see how it works against the tankers today.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Tanks have got gg to, only small hp players get kill easier...

I heard Ashock on live stream talked about new fort battle system. Can you write here what he said?
yes, please, a summary of that video feed would be appreciated. my system could not stream the video for whatever reason (firewall probably :mad:)

The part most relevant to beta is up in the announcements thread, some of the other 'futuristic' plans you can watch later for yourself :)
