Unit damage imunity ANSWERED

Post by Morningwarrior » Thu Nov 14, 2019 8:29 pm

Units with armor points greater than damage from the attacking opponent are unharmed, for example the foot knight has 4 armor points, a pike has 4 damage and this makes the foot knight immune to pike damage. and it would be much better in my opinion as the spartan hoplite to deal damage from a peasant that deals 1 max or a squire with a ram now 18 pierce armor still receiving 1 max damage, it would be better to upgrade this damage system on game.

Nah - I don't like that.

In my believe hp represents a combination of resilience/endurance, physical build, experience (or training), armor (destructible, weaker parts), position (mount). Maybe even some more things I forgot about right now.
Any soldier is affected by battle - they become tired, armor is getting wearied down. That's why units do loose 1 hp - it's representation of cumulation of little damage (like bleeding) and weariness.

Balance-wise I don't think virtually indestructible units are good - any unit should be defeated by cumulation of damage by bigger number of weaker units, even if it's not tactically reasonable to do it.

But that's what I thought I knew you wouldn't agree with, but it was really kind of an imbalance to the game in the end, you're right.

Why knight would become immune to pike?
Pikeman has bonus against knight.

"Foot knight" - heavy infantry unit with 4/3 armor in first tier already.
Hoplite could be used as even better example - zeroing damage after armor would make him impervious to swordsman (without blacksmith, aura or buffs).

Yean this mecanic would unbalance some units and others would be very over power.
