My question is there why not just putting in dmg per one attack? Instead of dmg over 20 seconds...
same issues as with the 20 sec but the information is helpful at least.
The only reason rly why they did the dmg/20 is to make it look better with the hp number...since it would look kinda odd to have a 45 besides the 720.
I would think more about the information that the card is giving us...and atm the information is pretty much zero. Well not zero but maybe the following example can show my thought process:
You got a card that has a atk of 2000 that means that card is dealing 2000 dmg in 20 seconds, which is nice to know, if you let cards fight 1vs1 all the time.
But what if this card has a attack speed of only 1 attack per 20 seconds...and you need to fight multiple small targets (10 targets) with 200 hp...
If you were thinking of the unit as a one attack per second...the unit would be able to destroy all the 10 targets in the 20 seconds...
BUT if the unit is only attacking every 20 seconds, it would do a overkill on every single target would need 181 seconds to clear all the targets.
you always need 3 values to calculate the dmg correctly atm we only got 2 at all the melee units only the ATK and that it is dealt by 20 seconds...what is missing is either the dmg per attack or the attack speed to calculate it correctly...
obviously, the attack speed value would make more sense...
In my opinion, the best solution depending on the information we can gather from the cards would be dmg per one attack plus the attack speed.
And I wouldn't be to concerned about the values false and what it would be with squads and so on, since atm all the ATK values aren't correct already.
what means that the ATK doesn't show the correct DMG the unit is dealing in 20 seconds...this depends on as already said if it is, for example, a squad or if it is splash damage.
And calculating it up to 20 seconds makes the gap even bigger and the mistake even worse, than just showing the damage the unit deal per one hit and the attack speed
I don't know if I was able to describe my thought process or if I'm appearing angry on my argumentation sometimes^^
this is absolutely not the case and might be so because English isn't my native tongue
hope my quote above is helping to understand why atk/20 might not be the best choice
