Combat Updates

Post by Lord Arogandor on Sun Feb 01, 2015 4:04 pm

Dear Seekers,

The combat section is a huge chunk of coding. A complete update at once takes to long for you to see any differences. So while we continue working on the new combat, we will update the existing combat as well partially. We have high hopes that the updates we do on the current combat also can be recycled for the new combat.

Some of the updates made won't make sense at first, but there always will be another update afterwards making things right/better. For those who are interested in combat, follow this topic for a complete view on the combat updates.

Today we expanded the amount of combat tiles from 5 to 9. This for adding the possibilities of ranged attacks. The monster starting position is at the end while your starting position remains at the second tile.

The Combat Statistic table for the player has gained its first make-over. The skills of the equipped weapon(s) are now displayed. It's a little messy code so we will have to re-do this later again.

The followers who fight in a combat listen now to your commands. In other words, they only perform their attack when you perform. If you stand your ground or move, the followers will do the same.

We managed to make some changes in two important aspects of the combat (hitting and dealing damage). Please see below for the current formula and if something is not clear or feels wrong, let us know!

+ Updated the Chance to Hit.

- Base chance to hit: 50%
- Combat Level effect: +3% or -3% for each level difference between you and your opponent (max 30% - 30%).
- Monster hit factor: Hitting of the monster (unmodified).
- Your hit factor: 1% for each point on Agility + 1% for each point on Arms Mastery + equipment modifiers (can raise or lower your hit factor).

Chance = Base + Level effect - Monster hit factor + your hit factor. (min 10% & max 90%).

+ Updated the Damage dealt.

- Minimum damage: You strength Skill * 0.4 + Weapon minimum damage * Weapon Primary Skill (1 point = +1% damage).
- Maximum damage: You strength Skill * 0.8 + Weapon maximum damage * Weapon Primary Skill (1 point = +1% damage).
- Base Damage: Your base damage is a value between your minimum & maximum damage.
- Weakness Bonus: If the damage type (Piercing, Slashing or Crushing) of your weapon matches with the Monster Weakness a bonus (extra damage depends on skill) is applied.
- Two handed fighting: If you wield a weapon with both hands, a bonus (extra damage depends on skill) is applied.
- Critical Strike: Chance to double the damage.

Result (minimum 1 damage) = Your damage - monster defense value.

+ Two-handed Fighting

- Adds 2% of the base damage for each point on the Two-handed Fighting Skill (works only when wielding Two Handed Weapons).
- Updated Skill description.
- Updated the Help-file.

Re: Combat Updates

Post by Lord Arogandor on Wed Mar 11, 2015 2:00 pm

Today we managed to finish another update on the combat:

+ Seeker Damage updated.
You now receive an additional damage bonus for your Melee and Ranged Combat Skill. Each point increases the damage with 0.5 on top of the actual damage dealt to the monster. This should shorten the lengths of fights.


+ Combat Initiative.
We completely remade the formulas for the initiative during combat.
- Having a horse increases your base initiative with +2 instead of +1.
- Monster Initiative = 50 + variable number based on basic monster initiative.
- Your Initiative = 50 + Speed Skill*0.5 + First Strike Skill + 2 for having a horse + equipment modifiers (can either be positive or negative).


When your initiative is larger then monster's initiative, you will strike first. After your action, the monster's initiative is reducted from yours. If your initiative is larger then the monster's initiative, you'll be able to take another turn in the same round. This continues as long your initiative is larger then the monster's initiative. Once your initiative is lower, it is the turn of the monster. Afterwards the turn ends. If you still would have some initiative left, it will be carried away to the next round, increasing your starting initiative. This also counts for when the monster would be having a higher initiative.

+ Example:
Round 1:
Player has initiative of 80. Monster has initiative of 55.
Player plays first and carries 25 initiative to next round (80 - 55 = 25).
Monster takes turn.
Round 1 ends.
Round 2:
Player has initiative of 105 (80+25 from last round). Monster has initiative of 55.
Player plays first and carries 50 initiative to next round (105 - 55 = 50).
Monster takes turn.
Round 2 ends.
Round 3:
Player has initiative of 130 (80+50 from last round). Monster has initiative of 55.
Player plays first and has 75 initiative left (130 - 55 = 75).
Player can play again with 70 initiative and takes 20 initiative to next round.
Monster takes turn.
Round 3 ends.
...

Protection Value Calculation:

- Physical Resistance = Physical Resistance Skill
- Main Hand = (Main Hand protection value * (1 + Armor Type (Light, Medium or Heavy) Skill * 0.01))
- Off Hand = (Off Hand protection value * (1 + Armor Type (Light, Medium or Heavy) Skill * 0.01))
- Head = (Head protection value * (1 + Armor Type (Light, Medium or Heavy) Skill * 0.01))
- Chest = (Chest protection value * (1 + Armor Type (Light, Medium or Heavy) Skill * 0.01))
- Legs = (Legs protection value * (1 + Armor Type (Light, Medium or Heavy) Skill * 0.01))
- Hands = (Hands protection value * (1 + Armor Type (Light, Medium or Heavy) Skill * 0.01))
- Feet = (Feet protection value * (1 + Armor Type (Light, Medium or Heavy) Skill * 0.01))

Total Value = (Physical Resistance * 0.4) + (Main Hand * 0.2) + (Off Hand * 0.3) + (Head * 0.3) + (Chest * 0.4) + (Hands * 0.1) + (Legs * 0.2) + (Feet * 0.1).


- Having a Horse no longer affects your Protection Value.
- Negative Protections no longer exist.
- Protection Value can never be below 0.



Stand Ground Option bug fix:
- The additional protection gained is calculated correctly.

- Added protection remains until the Seeker performs an action & not until another round starts.

Dear Combatants,

After a long and quiet period we finally continued working on the new combat system that would include multiple monster targets, groups, strategies, pvp, loot, ranged weapons,...
It will be a long and bumpy ride with honest mistakes, unbalanced attitude and battles full of frustration. I would have made it completely separated  from the current battle but unfortunately that's not realistic.

Whenever a change is made, I will post it here (and not on the game announcements). So for those who are interested in combat evolution should keep an eye on this topic Smile


Here we go! Twisted Evil
