Death of a Warlord
#11
17 is 'about a dozen' in some contexts. Like when my wife asks how many Twizzlers I want I never actually stop at 12.

Please do not take any of my comments as a personal insult or as a criticism of the game 'Alamaze', which I very much enjoy. Rather, I hope that my personal insight and unique perspective may, in some way, help make 'Alamaze' more fun, a more successful financial venture, or simply more sustainable as a long-term project. Anyone who reads this post should feel completely free to ignore, disregard, scorn, implement, improve, dispute, or otherwise comment upon its content.

It is funny, I feel like a star trek episode every encounter and I have beamed down with a dozen or so red jump suited guys. We all know its a death sentence for them, but each time they come back for more Smile

I checked the battle log for Nim.  He had to roll over 0.198 on a 0 to 99.9 scale to survive.  That is 10% of 2.3% x 85% for Stalwart.

Leader death check (for 1HA):
WARLORD Nim the Shifter: rolled 0.1919142 < 0.19853552 died

Very sad but true.  Below is an extract from the brigade promotion algorithm.  Not complete (there's more to it), and I'm not going to try to reformat it for the forum.


   
Brigade Promotion Method
1
Own group must be "blooded", meaning sustaining 5%+ own causalties or no promotion for any encounter (this is for the group, not individual brigades)
2
A group whose strength vs. the appropriate target (group or PC) by 500% or more cannot advance past Veteran for any encounter (cannot reach elite)
3
A battle/ encounter that doesn't get to the 4th round provides no chance of promotion (passed 1st storm phase or past short range missile)
4
Only a Green or Regular brigade has a (small) chance of advancing after winning against a village, must still have group be blooded
5
Percentages below may be modified by traits

Experience
Successful Group Battle where enemy loses at least 30% of their force
success in engagements where enemy loses <30% but at least 15% 
Unsuccessful Group Battle where enemy takes at least 10% casualties
Successful PC Battle vs Town or City
success PC battle vs Village

Green
100%
75%

I've spoken about this before.  In 2nd Cycle, we had different values for the men in encounters.  They are below.  In 3rd Cycle, we have traits like Heroic and Stalwart and Military Tradition.

We did have an aesthetic change scheduled to replace the text that talks about the number of men killed, but it was not a high priority.

Thanks, Rick. I had forgotten about that last bit. Not that it was anything more than a mild curiosity.

As for Nim, that is some major bad luck there. It certainly makes the battle reports that much more tense.

Indeed this was extremely helpful to me. I now know why I had 17 men die and this helps organize future attacks.
