Topic: Combat Simulator Bug

Hello,

I want to report another bug of the game that everyone else's had already experienced and and already been discussed over the chat. The bug is that the Combat Simulator somehow followed the ratio count of stats and number way more than the stats vs weaker stats itself.

Example of it is like this:-
A Heavy Cruiser had an attack of 12960 which you can guess, pretty damn strong.
Now what I expect is that this one cruiser alone can kill 5000 fighters easily, and when I put them inside the combat sim, the result vary. Now this is the part where I don't really get it. Is it that the game focuses in realism that a single ship can't fight a huge number of enemy ship to successfully spread it's firepower which means losing or is it that the combat sim calculation is apparently kind of... off?

This wasn't as big of an issue but it does bugs some of us as how inaccurate the coding becomes in this become when it comes to this. Some people say it was chances. But what chance do you have when it was a 12k firepower vs a 150 firepower ship!? I say none.

Please answer this sad

Re: Combat Simulator Bug

Do note that light ships have an advantage against heavy ships. The combat simulator does seem to take some chance into account too. Exactly what numbers of fighters did you try?

Re: Combat Simulator Bug

it was 200 fighters vs 5 battleships.

200*150=30k

With bonus they can kill all 5 battleships, but every time I clicked "Simulate" they just gave different answers each time. And it confuses the hell out of me.

Re: Combat Simulator Bug

Of course it gives different results, the battles are a bit random and it is giving you all the possible outcomes

The battle outcomes are pretty random, the critical hit chance as well. Every ship have a chance of critical hit.

Re: Combat Simulator Bug

If you want more accurate results, use larger numbers (ie: 200,000 fighters vs 5,000 battle ships.)  This averages out the randomness.
