Exbow/Axbow probs... (in General)

Take a look at my portrait. Anything odd? *hint* The draining effect of the exbow doesn't appear till the third round when it fires next...
Shouldn't the loss of strength affect the opponent immediately? (or in the second round)?
My enforcer's crossbow is named 'A Punisher's Crossbow' btw.

Maybe it wasn't until the third round that you wiped out his ST. More curious to me is the fact that his minion switched targets without any evidence of having killed the first.

Yeah, never noticed that. A lot of crazyness ;P

I see drains in 1st and 3rd rounds

Right -- it's the damage he does in the second vs. the third round. Drain must count before damage dealt by the other side, I guess, which would make it even more useful.

Im guessing that in each round the opponents attack at the same time? Or is this wrong?

That means that the drain in the 1st round should only affect the opponent in the second round and beyond, not in the first and beyond?

Or is it Attacker attacks first, then Defender?

I think it's attacker first then defender. There have been times I've killed myself to AMF backlashes after I've attacked and lost, without the defenders attacking in that round.

Ahhhh well that clears it up then :)

I like the thought of being able to drain 80k of strength in 3 hits!

AdminShade May 21 2005 10:35 AM EDT

ahhh yes, in round 1 you already drained ST before the attack and in round 3 you did the same before the defender reacts

I confirm that the attacker goes first: sometimes my tank killed himself on a ToBF, and in the same round the defender went on to attack my mage.
By the way, I think that this is an advantage for the defender (besides the fact that he does not consume ammos if he loses). Wouldn't it be better to do the opposite, a give the attacker this (small) advantage?
