Impossible Amount of Damage Spread? (in General)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 7 2011 6:01 PM EST

I am seeing a difference in damage that is supposed to be impossible. Against Hamez's PL wall I am seeing a damage ratio of over 80% different between max and min while he only has a 15.364% damage reduction.

I've had a high damage of Boxing Gloves [565,145]

and a low damage of Boxing Gloves [110,355]

In the space of 1 round and with everything being equal, that is no minions have died nor is EH in play. It seems to happen most of the time at the end of the fight. It is almost like that minion suddenly gets an extra 80% damage reduction right around when its hp runs out and it is running on only TSA regen.

All the rest of the minions behave normally with respects to damage.

Boxing Gloves [2,546,813]

Boxing Gloves [258,772]

I've seen both of those. Uhh... Yeah, that probably isn't normal. Has something to do with PL/TSA, I'd imagine, but who knows!?

This same bug happens with FB as well. It seems to be an issue with spread firing DD.

Any relation?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 19 2011 4:33 PM EST

No, I believe that has much more to do with the fact that FB starts out at 42% damage and rises to 100% only in the last round of ranged if you have an HoC otherwise its only in melee. Plus when the damage is spread between multiple targets the efficiency is higher or to be exact when only on 1 target it is less efficient, by the exact amount I'm not sure but its sort of like how AS works only not so extreme.

Zippy, i think you mean: up up down down left right left right B A

Shade you are talking about the Konami code, while Zippy is attempting a Mortal Kombat Fatality ;)

ah yes 24 years of video game experience serves me well.

Shade, I think you mean up up down down left right left right B A START. Not a whole heck of a lot happens if you don't finish the code. Now if only I could recall the code for Mike Tyson's Punchout to automatically fight Tyson, my childhood memories will be complete.

I know you could shark to the Tyson fight (007 373 5963) but I didn't think there was a button code that existed that allows you to fight him right away.

Hmm. Must have been the Game Genie code we memorized as kids. That's just sad...

So should I be looking at damage reduction applied during TSA regen, or damage reduction applied for spread DD?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 20 2011 12:40 AM EST

It only occurs when the targeted minion is at negative health. Normal DDs won't target a minion with negative health so I believe it is probably reductions being applied to the DD.
