    What do you think of 10% crit weapons together with 15% banners?

    Dislike crit, still use it though - Because there's not really another option.

    Lower level gameplay is actually more tactical, because critical hits aren't as game-changing as they are with mythical crit weapons.

    Critical damage on mythical weapons is skewed too high. Sure, landing a critical should do more damage...but one-shot kills happen too often, reducing the game to luck as opposed to tactics.

    I don't think we'd see any complaints if crit damage on 10% mythical weapons was reduced by 50% .

    Would honestly prefer that they'd remove it and add something fun in it's place rather than making it weaker... It's not interesting and it doesn't add anything to the game.

    I too often accidentally killed the last enemy by a crit to not hate them. Of course receiving a crit like this (in PvP) is even more annoying.
    But due to AP requirements I’m changing my complete lineup of 0%+30% towards 15%+10%.

    Yup, I went for 30+0 at the beginning as I liked even damage every time as opposed to a few lucky crits. But AP forced me to upgrade my crit gear for eventually all regiments.Started with Trut and it is a loooong way to max AP with crit for all regiments. At the moment I have 78 maxxed mythical gear. Will not need 21×3×2=126 to get to all crit and top AP armor, but close to it, because of my initial AP-unfriendly strategy. Gold and time, gold and time......

    I mean, I just fail to see how crit adds anything interesting to the game that couldn't be made more fun by making other different mechanics for the weapons while removing the frustrating randomness of it.

    Yeah, it is a random abomination to the game! The way AP is calculated forces us all to use it, even though we hate it and think it is unrealistic. Some players restart battles until they get those lucky crits, to win battle with few losses. I have many times gotten my strongest regs with full health, wiped out in a single hit by a reg with only 1-5 soldiers left. I am forced to play like a chicken, GG and 2 RoF is needed to avoid this. Real melee strategy is not possible with crits. My last battles before bed is the most fun all day, then I go kamikaze all in with mostly melee, try to win, and go to sleep with many full timers. Crit is NOT da shizzle!!! :D

    Oooh boy, so much to look forward to when leveling up :rolleyes:
    • Mythical weapon critical damage adds randomisation and subtracts tactical options
    • Increased PvP slog, with no substantial benefit except if you're in the top 100
    • No advantage gained over opponents by leveling up, as they are adjusted to your strength anyway
    • Promoting your top regiments fast means others are left in the dust (not a function of WL level, but does keep me from promoting and upgrading regiments)
    Could someone please give a pep talk with all the great advantages of being at level 23? The only thing that keeps me going at the moment is stats I want to complete.

    At level 20 critical hits are only an annoyance (and a very unrealistic one, when some few soldiers wipe a hundred times their number). I would like to see random damage capped at about 50% of base damage.

    The joy of getting a favourite reg fully upgraded, 5*, with 3 mythical gear at max is the biggest. Otherwise having fun playing the game while chasing shards, gold and diamonds is what it is all about... :D
