Thought on battle summary (in General)
May 13 2005 11:52 AM EDT
Currently, if you got one double hit in the battle, it would show up as Melee Hits / Blows / Avg Damage 2 / 2 / 183,430, and you can't really tell that it was a double hit. If it were to show up as Melee Hits / Blows / Avg Damage 2 / 1 / 183,430, you could easily tell that you had a double hit, and the more info you can get out of the battle summary, the better.

What if it missed in 1 round and double hit in another?

As long as the subject is here, how about showing what round a minion dies in?

Dig that idea, moser, though it may be a pain to keep track, especially in the VA resurrection scenarios...

bart - the miss would be 0 / 1 as normal, and the double hit would be 2 / 1, and it would show up as 2 / 2 in the summary, and of course, such a battle would currently show as 2 / 3. And if you get a miss and a double, your average chance-to-hit is probably closer to 100% than it is to 66%. I'd really like to see this change to make it easier to figure chance to hit from the battle summary, and probably should have said that in the first post.

I agree on that on my char with archery we could see 7/3 so i know that i did 1 triple and 2 double that will take the same amount of place and can give quick info.
I like that change
I might be missing something here but doesn't play-by-play show all this information?

Logan, some folks like the quick hit...first one's FREE kids! *smile*
Also, play-by-play shuts off after flushes, reboots, etc. No matter how much the beta crew clamored for it last December, we couldn't get Jon to make the play-by-play setting be global. As with a lot of things, I must have been missing something.
