New Bug as of Today - hit dice incorrect

Postby BrokenFace » 23 June 2017, 05:07

Occurred 3 games in a row with different 2 teams I was playing

During a block - 1 assist ally, 1 assist opponent. (No skill of guard)

The dice count does not consider the friendly assist.

Happened with several 2 die hits being 1, and once for a 3 die hit being 2.

Could you post a screen shot or give more details, what strength were the blocking player what strength the defender?

Going on the assumption both players were the same strength, say str3, if the defender has one assist and you have one assist that should be a one die, since the total strength of both player is 4.

For a 3D you need more than double the strength of the total strength of the defender, so if the defender is str3 and has one assist for the block, you need a total strength of minimum 9 for a 3D block.

Without more details for the situation, I cannot tell you more than those general statements, which you might have been already aware of.

Oh yeah sorry, long time BB player Im well aware of the rules. I'll go digging for screenshots and yes there were strength advantages. Forgot you guys deal with all levels of knowledge and I wasn't clear. Give me a bit I'll get them for you.

File too large it says, tried a few formats.(When trying to add a screenshot) So here's my best description.

user - BrokenFace (me) team - Pestilence Cometh

user - elmvchaco team - ZZzZzzzzzzzzzZZz

league - champion ladder VII
date played 6/22/17 PST


turn 12 Pestilence Cometh turn
Big Rat blitz on gutter runner leading to double dice push then pow
the first hit had 1 assist from each team

both are new teams so standard stats
str5 vs str2 = more than double strength
was 2 die, when should have been 3

There were a few others in previous games but honestly I'm done wrestling with this. Thanks guys for giving me my overall favorite game for many years.

To further illustrate it's the difference mathematically between

(Str5 + ally.assist) vs. (Str2 + opponent.assist) = Str6 vs. Str3 = 2 die

and

Str5 + (ally.assist - opponent.assist) vs. Str2 = Str5 vs. Str2 = 3 die

This is a rule change that dramatically changes strategy during a mashed up brawl

Assists don't cancel out, they add to the respective strengths, so a Rat Ogre (+1 assist) vs a Gutter (+1 Assist) is ST6 vs ST3, so a 2Dice Block.

Nope, I was talking about a 0TTD on a Blitz! using TTM.

That's been the assist rules since 3rd edition Blood Bowl came out in 1994.

It's been that way for a long, long time. It's a common error to assume it works the other way, though.
