Hi again.
When sitting on the boat on the way home, I thought: Why is every single unit equipped with sniping accuracy? I mean it, no one can miss. Confused And shields barely help, as they just are a design change... <.< Shouldn't there be a miss/block effect, which can be lowered/increased with each level, and depending on how heavily armed a unit is. I can make an example:
SKIRMISHER
Higher blocking/missing ability than Musketeers and better accuracy. (This can lower damage, but you get it.)
PAVISE
Good parry, but less mobility because of the shields.
Q: Is this not in because of Health?

well, blame ES Mr. Green

It's mainly to make things simpler if every attack is a hit everything is easily calculated and easy to balance. Hitpoints the same: if youre hit by a cannonball hits your head don't survive just because you get more money Wink
game mechanics...

The whole system with damage and hitpoints is a bit odd overall. Damage should be "chance of fatal or seriously injuring hit".

I know. Rolling Eyes Just because I have been away I hav't forgotten anything. But I'm not very updated on the new beta, since i've not had an oppurtunity to try it. And that is the only way Dragos, don't start ranting now.
