SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    Re: [Answered] Please help us clarify these following game mystery

    This is probably a dumb question but what is the 'white number' mentioned by duke. See below:

    Base damage is calculated based off of: your base attack (white number), your attack power, defender's base defense (white number), defender's defense power.

    I think it would be great to be able to see what my toon's base damage is along attack/def power. How does the crit/crit damage/damage from the class page factor into all of this?

      Like what you quoted from my answer, your base damage is subject to change based on your strength and ALSO target's strength, so even if I give you a number it won't be accurate and doesn't really mean much.

          @UW_Duke

          In a boss fight, is a "Lieutenant Critical" different than a "Critical Hit"? Are they both generated by your crit chance %? Do the lts that you have play any part in the "Lieutenant Critical"?

            If I remember it right, LT Crit is only based on how many different LTs you have, not related to your crit chance.

                  It was answered in the thread when the crate was released. You do 400 armor damage + 400 armor damage from Twinkie + 500 health damage.

                      I've searched the forums, all the way back to the beginning of time, but I can't seem to find how critical damage is calculated in boss fights.

                        What's the difference between +X% Critical (e.g. Pain) and +X% Critical Damage (e.g. Miss Conduct)? Which is more useful?

                          X% crit is the chance to do critical hit. X% crits dmg is the % increase in a dmg which a crit hit does.
                          Imo a chance to do more critical hits with a small crit dmg boost is a good option.
                          If you are playing ghost class then crit dmg would be more important and if playing sniper then crit chance boost would be better.

                            I had a question about Lady Luck. I thought I had seen another thread that her code was perhaps a bit messed up, or something like that, but I can't find it, so I'm not sure how easy this question is to answer or if it is even answerable.

                            What I gather with her is she simply adds (not multiplies) to a lieutenant chance power. E.g., Trix has a 0.6% chance to proc, but my 4* Lady Luck "should" add 2.5% to that to give a 3.1% chance for Trix to proc, if I have them seated together. At least that's what I assumed the whole time. Pretty big change there. (Not so big when, say, the chance was 50% to splash, and she turns it into 52.5%).

                            The question I really have is this: does she also add to skill chance powers? So at Hot Shot 3, I have a 3% chance at the start of a war to get Hot Shot, but if Lady Luck is seated at the start of war, does she increase that to 5.5%? And similarly, does she affect active skills as well?

                              0.6% + 2.5% is a perfect example why Lady Luck design was BAD. I can tell you that the existing code doesn't give you 2.5% bonus. Lady Luck power was tuned down when the base % is low. I think it is safe to say Lady Luck skill is still a very great power, but not crazy OP. Problem is the description cannot be simplified to reflect her real power. And I don't want to be the index to answer every question about her. She's been like this forever, so not my first priority to sort her out, that means, she is as fine as is for now.

                              I want to give some guidelines for understanding Lady Luck, I could be wrong as there are too many factors:
                              1. Some common used skills are buffed by her power normally (without discount): Frank, Layla, Gunslinger, Crit %, Dodge %, Attack/Defense Power fluctuation %. And most chance based LT powers, if % is not too small.
                              2. If you see some LT has less than 5% to proc at 9*, Lady Luck contribution is most likely tuned down.
                              3. Overkill and Whiplash proc chance are not buffed by Lady Luck.
                              4. Non-cloneable chance based LTs are most likely not working with Lady Luck buff. For example Siri.

                                Thanks Duke, but this is really demoralizing to find out she really doesn't work on all chance powers like I feel she should. I thought in the past she was really strong and I seat her all the time, now it looks as if that has been a waste of a seat for me.
