Strong Hit vs Critical Hit

What is the difference between a Strong Hit and a Critical Hit.

I get that one comes from a buff and the other comes from hitting a hero with a tile that comes from the element that they are weak against.

But which is better in damage done?

I believe “Strong Hit” when you hit the target with the color that is strong against that color. So, if you hit blue hero with green tile, red hero with blue tile etc…

“Critical Hit” is when normal damage is doubled regardless of the color of the tiles.


What is the point boost for a strong hit? 1.5x maybe?

I always thought that both Strong and Critical gave double damage.

The difference being Strong only occurs when you use troops to hit an enemy which they are strong against (i.e. Ice vs Fire) whereas Critical double damage can be any element vs any other element (and is based on RNG).

Critical Damage always double the damage regardless of the color.

Strong hit applies more damage compare to other tiles. It is not necessarily double the damage

As far as I understand, if you have a base damage of 100 for a normal attack then:

A weak attack deals half of it 100 / 2 = 50
A strong attack deals double of it 100 * 2 = 200

A critical hit adds an extra base damage (100) to your hit

A weak critical attack deals 50 + 100 = 150
A normal critical attack deals 100 + 100 = 200
A strong critical attack deals 200 + 100 = 300


Great breakdown. Thanks :ok_hand:
