Critical hit damage bonus errors

Wed Apr 14, 2021 1:11 pm
.
Here we are again
The cluster that is "Critical Hit Damage Bonus errors" is evident here.

Example 1
When Gunpoint Mk2 is equipped with the XXVII Captain gear and Head of State head: a transposition error is evident (6.2x does not equal 5.0x - see last 3 screen pics).

Example 2
Removing just the XXVII Captain headgear (from the exact set-up noted in example 1 - above) and replacing it with something else (like Sun Warrior head gear as I have): a mathematical error is evident. (1.0 + 0.3 + 0.3 + 0.3 + 2.0 does not equal 3.0 - see first 3 screen pics).

Why do I call this a cluster
Because there appears to be no consistency and this systemic issue has has not been fixed:
A. In example 1, the total is added up incorrectly - in the drill down screen, but the number from the drill down screen is not transposed correctly - to the PvP load out summary screen (see blue arrow).
B. In example 2, the total is not added up correctly - in the drill down screen, and this incorrect number is transposed as is - to the PvP load out summary screen (see blue arrow).
C. What Critical Hit Damage Bonus multiple we actually get during game play is anyone's guess.

Reference
Rather than over explanation in this thread, here's a post (with links to other examples) covering the topic:
viewtopic.php?f=2161&t=712246

Will the Mk3 be the saviour here?
Roll on stage 3 of this event. Who knows, this cluster may not apply to Gunpoint Mk3.

Oh, OK. Thank you for all of your diligence and time.

However, I tried this armor set with several different applicable weapons and concluded that it is worthless. It could not take out a single member of my 10*/11* base and the "wave of fire" (Inferno) barely left a scratch on anything.

Maybe I just don't know how to use it.

No problems  ;)

The critical hit damage bonus issue spans multiple gear sets / gear combinations and weapons.

A critical hit multiple of 6.2 does not appear to be evident in game play (based on limited testing I've done so far).

However, I tried this armor set with several different applicable weapons and concluded that it is worthless. It could not take out a single member of my 10*/11* base and the "wave of fire" (Inferno) barely left a scratch on anything.

Sounds like you got the same results (and drew similar conclusions) as I did on the gear - mediocre (and that's being kind). As for the weapon, all a little academic until we own a fully upgraded MK3 and the event is over.

Roll on stage 3.

Side note: If you really want to give the MK2 a go, try it with SW head gear - forget the wave of fire gimmick. It also seems to perform better with Tough Bunny (with Head of State) than it does with XXVII Captain in my opinion.

So far nothing of note, including the gear set.

Roll on tomorrow morning and stage 3 when, hopefully, the whole event might look worth it after all...

Going through with so many parts left over (see attached screen) due to sever shortage of 1 or 2 all the way through, again hopefull GL haven't decided to change that after the last stage unannounced.

With a bit of luck I won't need to run the deputy again for this event.

Numbers attached for comparison.

WTF! Something about this event had me knowing we'd get screwed over.

Lvl 4 -> 5 = 75 parts

And 2 more levels of upgrade above that, didn't even get taken out for a meal or a drink first...

Added affinity this round, ability recharge on kill (woop), same cr@ppy red circle sight too.

Really appears as though we got bent over. My work colleague just said that they must have stolen my kit bag. :D

Surely this (i.e. the seemingly too large upgrade requirements) can't be palmed off as an error - if it is then it's the same error made just about every three stage event. What do you think the chances are of just about every three stage event having exactly the same fault accidentally? And what are the chance that this fault never gets fixed from one event to the next? (don't answer that). My point is: this has got to be deliberate - it's extremely hard to believe that someone would keep making the same error over and over again.

Gee it would be nice if we had a consistent template for these three stage events - this random stuff from event to event takes the shine off the excitement for me.

The real question is: Does the weapon have to be fully upgraded to complete the event???

I'd hazard a guess at yes, and that if the upgrade requirements are an error they won't bother to fix or compensate before the event is over.

As we know from experience GL do not value their players/customers in any way, so why should they bother about it now.
