Mini-proposals : top NW items, etc (in General)

Sickone March 1 2010 6:11 AM EST

Instead of showing us the exact stats on the top 10, then only the last item in the top, why not simply show the exact stats of ALL items in the top ?

For that matter, why not show exact item stats in the character inspect pages directly too ?

Or, why not, even also unequipped items (and their exact stats).

It's probably for Strategic secrecy.

So you don't know exactly how large your opponents items are, or exactly how much Evasion/Minus PTH you need to dodge thier hits.

That sort of stuff.

So if it is a secrecy thing then basically it is a disadvantage to be in the top few because those people have their stats shown to everyone. I also felt a long time ago that if the top few are shown why aren't they all shown.

Yeah, either show them all, or show none, there's no "logic" to only showing 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and 50... but NOT 11 through 49 nor beyond 51... it's so arbitrary.

It's not really arbitrary. Showing the last one allows you to gauge where ones fall in the middle.

Not all is ever revealed in CB. Although you can get a lot more information from the item naming pages.
