Numbers! Combat balance discussion

Post by AlexFricke on Tue Nov 10, 2015 4:12 pm

Here's some thoughts on numbers balance for an "average" weapon against 2 of our basic enemies: porcs and thuggets.

Avg Weapon
-Features:
__Sweep: low damage, hits multiple enemies, medium knockback
__Focus: high damage, hits single enemy, low knockback
-Use Cases:
__Sweep: best vs. 3 or more enemies
__Focus: best vs. 1 or 2 enemies
-Vs. Thugget
__Sweep: 2-shot kill
__Focus: 1-shot kill
-Vs. Porc
__Sweep: 7-shot kill
__Focus: 3-shot kill
-Damage Values (uncharged)
__Sweep: 2
__Focus: 5
-Charged Attacks
__Sweep: damage increased, knockback greatly increased
__Focus: damage increased, knockback slightly increased

Thugget HP: 4
Porc HP: 14

presuming sweep and focus both take 1 second to fully execute
presuming charged attacks add 1 additional second to fully execute
-sweep multiplier: x2.5
__sweep (uncharged): 2 damage
__sweep (half-charged): 3.5 damage
__sweep (full-charged): 5 damage
-focus multiplier: x2.5
__focus (unchaged): 5 damage
__focus (half-charged): 8.75 damage
__focus (full-charged): 12.5 damage

test vs porc, 7 sweeps to kill, 3 focus to kill
(after deciding health values (porc w/ 14 health))
vs 1 porc:
__sweeps: 7seconds to kill
__focus: 3seconds to kill
vs 2 porcs:
__sweep: 7s
__focus: 6s
vs 3 porcs:
__sweep: 7s
__focus: 9s
vs 4 porcs:
__sweep: 7s
__focus: 12s

Half-Charged Attacks
vs 1 porc:
__sweep half-charged: 6s
__focus half-charged: 3s
vs 2 porc:
__sweep half-charged: 6s
__focus half-charged: 6s
vs 3 porc:
__sweep half-charged: 6s
__focus half-charged: 9s
vs 4 porc:
__sweep half-charged: 6s
__focus half-charged: 12s

Fully-Charged Attacks
vs 1 porc:
__sweep charged: 6s (technically 5.6667 seconds)
__focus charged: 3s (1 full-charged focus, 1.5 damage from another attack)
vs 2 porc:
__sweep charged: 6s (technically 5.6667 seconds)
__focus charged: 5s (2 full-charged focus on 2 porcs, sweep to finish both)
vs 3 porc:
__sweep charged: 6s (technically 5.6667 seconds)
__focus charged: 7s (3 full-charged focus on 2 porcs, sweep to finish all)
vs 4 porc:
__sweep charged: 6s (technically 5.6667 seconds)
__focus charged: 9s (4 full-charged focus on 2 porcs, sweep to finish all)
