I've never really used GA before, and I have to say, I'm loving it.

Now, my GA is 950k. I notice the Wiki claiming a need for a GA 2.5 times the size of damage received to hit back for the full 60%. Has there been much testing of this?
Also, is there much point me raising my GA past where it is currently? Am I wasting time boosting it further?

If GA is helping you win most of your battles, don't stop raising it. The bigger it is, the more it will survive against DM.
As for return damage, I have no idea what the cap is. It's probably something like:
(GA Level / Damage Done) * 50% * 60%
That would mean that you need a GA at least twice the size of the damage done to inflict 60% return damage on an unprotected target.

Without any other factors it should be around 2.5 times the blow in GA level. There has been little testing, but those results say it is 2.5, I believe if you do some little testing it won't be equal to the blow.

Oh, Johnny, you just got on my radar! Posting minion names I recognize and clearly stating GA is a big part of the strategy... Heh. Welcome to my Favorites! *smile*

lol, I hope you choke on the small rewards you might get from a small fish like me....;)

Rewards look fine to me -- you aren't the smallest score in my fightlist... *smile*
Sut, it wouldn't have mattered WHAT his strat was when you have over twice his PR and MPR. My bet is you can beat EVERY team with 1500000 or less PR.
I can draw him in two ^.^
Johnny's Guardian Angel smote Bane (131479)
That's through 155 AC AND a (19) Protection.

I think GA is same type of damage as received so magical damage is reduced by + of AC not the base AC..

Yes, mit, I was being puerile. I realize that. That wasn't my point.

Johnny's Vampiric Aura fizzles under Dispel Magic
Johnny found no valid targets on which to cast Antimagic Field
Johnny's Protection fizzles under Dispel Magic
Johnny's Ablative Shield fizzles under Dispel Magic
Johnny's Guardian Angel fizzles under Dispel Magic
This is why you would want to keep upgrading your GA. If a person has a big enough DM then it doesn't do much. You still kill me though, but I am trying to figure that one out. lol
