Carnage Blender Myths (in General)
July 26 2006 7:40 PM EDT
Just some random fun. Anyone care to help me brew up a list of myths? For example,
1. Does untrained experience really add to the character's PR virtually?
2. Is tank power truly larger than mage power (overpowered)?
3. Is it really impossible to get to the top with a mage?
Things like 2 and 3 are being tested by GL and Ranger. I have no clue about 1. Maybe we can form some sort of CB Myth Busters =D
Ranger had a mage team in a three way tire for first, I don't know about now....
and yes untrained exp most certainly does add to your vpr.

Caveat to number 3, a mage team cannot get to the top if the other tanks at the top use seekers. If Jayuu or Krang stuck with seekers, I would have no chance to be at or stay at the top.
However, without a change to VB's, number 3 will eventually not be possible. The only way I survive long enough to damage and kill the top tank teams is via my Wall. VB's do massive damage to these type minions, therefore making it impossible to live long enough once someone makes a decent sized VB. IE Nymandus's VB already at x1200 does 150-175k damage per hit to my wall. Once someone gets a VB to x3000 or more, we will see damages of over 400k a hit, making my wall last only 1-2 rounds from its normal 4-6 rounds it does now.
Number 1-Yes, this is mostly for use in the calculation of battle rewards.
Number 2-With the new changes to melee weapon upgrades, Yes, but tanks do cost a lot more to run.
:D I love Mythbusters and it's an honour to be on a CB Mythbusting team! :D

I would say with GL's latest test results a firm BUSTED can be stamped on number 2!
Viva la Mythbusters.
It's not over yet.. I'd hold off on that BUSTED! :P Wait till tomorrow and when I untrain my BL...

GL don't waste your exp.... it is easy enough to figure out what what dmg + 60% = your current dmg... Now I didn't realize your FB was trained higher than your Str, that could sway things a touch, but I'm thinking not much depending on how out of wack you were.

GL, you need to get a beret and grow a bushy goatee.
There was only one Myth :) sadly he quit.
That dude could throw a strat, practically everyone stole something from him indirectly.
The Grid takes damage from his own Cone of cold (199303)!
The Grid's Cone of cold hit Cephas Keken Maug Fighter 
Mages are alive and well...(as long as they have a ToE...ok and maybe a SF)
