Can we please get the MPBs reset ? (in General)


Sickone October 10 2008 9:12 AM EDT

Each time a physical weapon damage modification happens, the old "most powerful blow" stats mean less and less.
Can we at least adjust them, if not reset them altogether ?

Little Anthony October 10 2008 9:14 AM EDT

no please don't. I like my 4mil hit :D it is about what my SG does :D

Sickone October 10 2008 9:14 AM EDT

I mean...
" Greneral Grievous : 2,024,471,524 "
...seriously ?

It probably puts new players off,

"How can I ever compare to that huge damage? I only hit for 45 : ( "

I'm assuming that's some sort of Bug Sick. No idea how I got that.

2 Thousand Million MPB couldn't be got even with Pumped Arrow and Free Retrain XP into STR.

Could it?

Sickone October 10 2008 10:09 AM EDT

Well I have no idea how it got there, but it got there.
There's several other hits of similarly insane MPBs...

Conundrum 1,390,851,510
The Black Company 521,463,288
Nymandus 456,106,265
Lina 356,718,901

etc

Conundrum and Nymandus were done during a free retrain without bugs, the new top blow was a bug.

Sickone October 10 2008 10:16 AM EDT

The highest you could possibly hope to get now would be far below a hundred mil, even assuming the largest BoNE on the largest minion with full bloodlust and all XP into ST hitting an unarmored target.
Heck, I'm almost willing to bet it's far below ten mil, if that much.

Having a whole first column full of 8+ mil MPB is kind of... broken ?

Usul [CHOAM] October 10 2008 10:17 AM EDT

well the minion's name is superman, go figure !

Cube October 10 2008 10:19 AM EDT

Does it matter if it was a bug or not? They aren't attainable with the current formulae. If you really want maybe they can be scaled down whenever damage is tweaked, but I really doubt that's worth the effort.

Sickone October 11 2008 4:02 AM EDT

Yup, that was precisely the point... doesn't matter how those MPB got there, they can (no longer) be acheived, so they should be brought down... and a plain reset would be the fairest way.

Unappreciated Misnomer October 11 2008 4:44 PM EDT

it would be nice if it was done during change of the month.

QBJohnnywas October 11 2008 4:45 PM EDT

It was done today....

Unappreciated Misnomer October 11 2008 4:48 PM EDT

3 minutes and the best is 2million.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 11 2008 4:50 PM EDT

it has been over 8 hours now actually.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 11 2008 5:29 PM EDT

I'm still in the Top Ten, and not spent a single BA in days! ;) LoL!

Go Go SoC and sucking up 6 Ranged rounds of Damage!

Boom! MPB in seconds. Now if someone largr than me tried that, the MPB would fall. ;)

Sickone October 11 2008 5:31 PM EDT

#10, and that from an ELB hit during melee rounds :)

I'm going to enjoy my day in the sun until I get knocked out tommorow :P
