New insight into statistics problems

Post by Elvish_Pillager »

Perhaps it isn't the expected value being wrong... it's the actual value being wrong! After I dealt 7 damage in this multiplayer game, the 'damage inflicted' said '3'! Invisible Philosopher, who I was playing with, will upload his own save at the same time during the game in a following post.

That's great, now we have something substantial. I just replayed it and got 6 as the inflicted damage instead of 7 (let's hope the replay is wrong for the exact same reason the stats were wrong, otherwise only part of the bug may be fixed). Looking into it.

When I loaded the save, the statistics said 7 taken on player 1's turn and 3 inflicted on player 2's turn, and when I replayed it, they said 6 taken for player 1 and when I tried to end player 1's turn, nothing happened.

There are two bugs in fact. First the damage inflicted when defending was wrongly computed by using the attacker power: 3 was in fact the damage the saurian would have done to the troll. And second, the stats of the replay are added to the stats of the savefile: 6 was 3+3 (and now that I have fixed the first bug, it shows 10: 3+7).
