or How Gregorion will be loser of season 2.
At first I know heroes will change when released, bla bla… Ok.
But anyway I’ve had the chance to peak at the a video of new heroes, where several of them give different kind of attack boosts. So I generally wanted to compare Critical Chance vs. Attack Boost.
In advance my understanding:
Crit adds the neutral base damage of the hero’s normal attack. No Specials involved.
Attack boost adds the percentage to the normal attack and to the specials.
Assumptions for every hero:
- We are not comparing the heroes themselves, but e. g. a standard hero next to them
- 100 dmg/ standard attack
- Special: 200% of standard attack
- Attack and dmg correlate positively
- Comparable damage is weak+neutral+strong+special
+54% attack for 4 turns
+36% chance for critical hit for 4 turns
64%chance for normal hit: Weak 77 / Neutral 154 /Strong 308
36% for crit: Weak 231 / Neutral 354 / Strong 462
Damage: (0,64*(77+154+308))+(0,36*(231+354+462))+308 = 1.029,88
+30% chance for critical hit for 3 turns
70%chance for normal hit: Weak 50 / Neutral 100 /Strong 200
30% for crit: Weak 150 / Neutral 200 / Strong 300
Damage: (0,7*(50+100+200))+(0,3*(150+200+300))+200 = 640
Some other or new heroes:
III) Boldtusk, Gadeirus:
+48% attack for 4/3 turns
Weak 72,5 / Neutral 148 / Strong 296
IV) Wilbur, Khiona
+45% attack (and further 20%) every time they get hit during 3 turns:
Weak 72,5(82,5) / Neutral 145(165) / Strong 290(330)
+100% damage for normal attacks for 4 turns (stackable, but no specials):
Weak 100 / Neutral 200 / Strong 400
Conclusion: It is always better to go with Attack boost rather than the chance for a critical hit (or you go with Ares and have both). And Gregorion (or his chance for critical hit) will be much less worth, when there are several 4*/5* heroes with attack boost.
Any logical mistakes or other opinions? Please let me know.
