Problem with WA? (in General)

winner winner April 16 2008 7:20 AM EDT

My WA is 1,407,528 and i have a 1,127,395 bow but the bow is adding 14k PR every time i equip it.

can't use the weapon i bought for my tourney character :(

Yes, the WA is too low now.

But I am sure Henk will disagree with this and everything else I post so just wait for the other point of view.

Right now, on Koy, I cannot use my MH without going over my WA. I feel sorry for lower MPR tanks.

But as mages will say "it is all for balance".

It is all for balance.

The prophecy has been fulfilled.

Agreed, Sut.

Does anybody honestly give a damn about WA after 6/20?

lostling April 16 2008 10:38 AM EDT

rofl... hence enc?

QBRanger April 16 2008 10:56 AM EDT


No for WA. But a resounding YES for encumbrance load.

outside of 6/20 I suspect the WA reduction was the big news for most 1/2 minion tanks maybe some 3 minion, for those teams the encumbrance is often meaningless if keeping under WA.

in 7/20 as a tank, where I am trying to compete with 6/20 characters, I find it frustrating that WA/ENC destroy my chances of competing with the huge NWs of those who I'm trying to beat. I understand that they are crippled too, but I am confused as to how to continue. etc. :| sorry lostling

jahroor, WA is not your only problem. Being a single minion pretty much kills any chance of you getting anywhere near the top. Might want to retrain to evasion + robf. It's been proven again and again that that is the best single minion strategy.

That being said, WA is too low. Why make getting to 6/20 more difficult for those stuck at the dead zone? Afterall, the 6/20s don't really care about WA and it's not really a balancing point.

"weapon allowance and pr is really only used now in the challenge bonus calculations, so if you could tie encumbrance to challenge bonus then you could do away with pr and wa and really simplify the learning curve for newbies?"

this was from another post, but i still think this is a worthy goal, i am just stumped as far as the method.
