Who of course visit the forums, and will use the handy dandy search function.

I fear your efforts will be in vain.

Humor me. I'm old and bored! :angry:

My take is like this. I can get at a target through a car door but the damage inflicted will be reduced. Even after totally trashing the door with damage, if it is still on its hinges, it will impede/reduce any and all shots that have to deal with it. Then Seat(s) to Floor, etc... :angry:

Hi ;) ... the only question I have about your nice animated jpeg is ... I thought the damage reduction was 50% ... half the damage is transmitted through each destroyed component. This gives a damage transmission of 100% -> 50% -> 25% ... which makes the mechs with large arms, side torsos and standard engines very hard to kill if they block properly.

So I patched yesterday, and for a lark a swapped my AC20 for a Gauss(3 tons of ammo). Went out to the play ground to test it out with some PPCs... After only 3 Mechs I ran out of Gauss?
Awesome
Atlas
Centurion

Now I WAS shooting from sides
I was registering Hits on both the wire frame and the Crosshairs... But 3 tons of Gauss with twin PPC to kill 3 Mechs...
...
...

Is that normal when trying to burrow through Canon Armor starting from the Arms?

I don't remember it being that... hungry in the past.

Anyway, Thanks for any insight. ;)


Quit trying to hit 20K :rolleyes:

Halved and then Halved again... got it, wasn't 100% (or 50% or 25%) sure of the transition value. I'll change the gif tomorrow and put it up (removing the old one). Is there any actual data that proves what the damage reduction system is for this situation? Just curious for reference.

I believe that is what the table top system did. I don't think there is any actual reference to what MWO does. However, I believe some testing ground runs showed that it took about 4 times as much damage to core a Centurion from the side than expected.

Now the Side Torso destruction? If it is 100% gone how is the arm absorbing anything?

I know I am being picky... but continue to humor an ol' man!


It's easier to break something than destroy it.

If you fire a bullet into a computer, it will likely stop working. Doesn't mean it disintegrates....
