Interesting: UC might = Evasion Skill + Weapon (in General)

[T]Vestax February 17 2006 6:50 PM EST

I know this is well after my run up from the bottom, but I would like to point out an observation of mine. My tourney team was a team reliant on a tank for damage and focused on shutting down other tanks ST and DX. With this team I was usually able to calculate before hand my chances of victory since ST and DX is a public stat. Many times I was able to beat a team the instant my total EC reduction equaled the opponents DX.

Now to the point. I noticed that even against UC tanks with no remaining DX I still was unable to hit them. Now I'm not an idiot, I do understand that UC takes away my % chance to hit, but I carefully upgraded my weapons cover this. I was loosing so badly to the UC tank that I finally learned to just not fight them. My assumption is that they may have more then just the reduction to the chance to hit. I think these tanks are also getting the defensive dex as well.

If that is the case then I would label that as a bug since that would make it almost no different then the evasion skill with a free weapon.

Please feel free to post any math you might have, be it in favor of my opinion or against.

UC is most certainly granting defensive dex, we've now had more than report of odd results in trying to hit a UC tank even with an overwhelming dex gap.
Maybe we need to double check the defensive dex numbers being granted?

Wow. I feel a sudden desire to run a UC team, something I never thought I'd feel.

Grant: your attention often blow from hither to thither on a moment by moment basis?

Oh and as far as your UC team...ask Johnnywas how much fun I'm having beating on him...

Evasion gives bonus to effective DX on defense equal to the evasion level - does that also affect UC?

tscm: yes

Johnnywas isn't liking those mages attacking me. But likes very much a single UC tank being able to beat Mikel's team in two battles, despite being much smaller PR.

All this scrutinizing attention lately to my precious UC that I've been nurturing for a full year just to get it to a reasonably formidable level is going to get it nerfed next month! Stop! ;)

BM, I was just thinking the same. I've only just discovered a toy that works in CB better than people thought. Don't take it away from me!!

Eh, it's no big deal to me, but that still makes evasion the orphaned love child of UC.
