1: battle cries are broken
2: you got killed 2 times?
3: you got killed by both of the minions at the same time?
4: little Melissa already knows how to spread a virus in Jon's game

Gourry missed. He couldn't have killed me. And I was attacking Lina, so no GA from him. Did he have a 'critical miss' (anybody play D&D with those?) and miss me so badly he thought he hit me when he actually hit the ground?

It happens more often, but only with VA enabled opponents that might, or not, resurrect themselves.

I also wonder how you could dodge if you are already dead? :P

I think you were already dead, but the VA might resurrect you, hence Gourry targeting, but your amount healed is insufficent, and the check afterwards if the opponent is dead is positive, so a battlecry.

/me is off getting some Pth

But VA should only work while Almuric is attacking, not in the other half of the round.

If all attackers attack simultaniously, why is VA applied after an opponents attack, in such a way it can bring you back from the dead?

Proposed change to the way VA works

My point is that only reason defender resurrects is that if it were truly simultaneous, he never would have died. The outcome is NOT different.

I guess that works for the attacker as well.

but following jons logic from last year, if he never would have died, why would the next minion skip him and go onto the next minion in his line-up? why wouldnt he just finish that minion off then and there, instead of skipping him while he heals himself?

And trigger a battle cry?
