|0000532||Dwarf Fortress||Combat -- General||public||2010-04-05 15:33||2014-07-21 16:29|
|Assigned To||Toady One|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.40.01|
|Summary||0000532: The fighter skill appears to have a negative affect.|
|Description||When tesed in the arena, as detailed in this thread:|
The fighter skill appears to have either a negative affect or such a small positive affect that even at grandmaster level the results of testing show a negative effect due to randomness.
It could be because the Fighter skill enables a more inefficient combat technique and is therefore unbalanced, or that it is simply broken. Either way it doesnt seem to be working as intended.
|Steps To Reproduce||Arena testing of any identical creatures/groups, with one having the Fighter skill and one not having it, will usually end up with the non-fighters the victor.|
|Tags||balance, combat, fighter|
Reminder sent to: Huggz
Does this still hold true in 0.31.25? It would be helpful if you redid your tests.
|Resolving as unable to reproduce without further updates.|

Did various tests in the arena with the following configurations:
Group 1 -12 Human, Talented spearman,Grandmaster Fighter,Skilled Shield and Dogde, no armor, shield and spear.
Group 2-12 Human, Talented spearman,no skill in Fighter,Skilled Shield and Dogde, no armor, shield and spear.
I tested five battles, in all of them group Group 1 won with about half of the fighters remaining. I think Fighter now has a positive influence.
The combat system changed in 0.40.01, so maybe it was fixed?
|Thanks for testing!|
