Are the invasion power ups working properly for Calhoun (is this a bug), if this is not a bug please explain the calculation.
Firstly, please note there is a minor difference in the invasion power ups on the screen shots that I use below… in some case she has 274 and in others 275 - so its pretty negligible.
Calhoun’s red skill reads:
In this case mine is a level 41 Red Skill which means there is a chance to fail on enemies above level 161.
In theory the level above which there is a chance to fail should increase as you apply power ups. In the below screen shot Calhoun has 275 power ups, which gives the following:
Note that the breakdown says “+825 Skill Levels”, there are 5 skills (white through to red), so 825 /5 = 165. So it appears that the intention is that each skill has been increased by 165 levels. So when we take her base red skill (chance to fail above 161) and add 165 levels we get 326…
So it appears that her red skill should work 100% of the time on enemies of level 326 or below. Sadly that is not what happens.
This next screen shot shows the outcome of an attack against a level 255 mamma bot (at which point Calhoun had +274 invasion power up - a small difference), followed by a screen shot of the health remaining after the attack.
Finally, for comparison, a screen shot of the outcome of an attack against a level 270 mamma bot.
I get that the nature of the red skill means that the higher level bots that have more armour will take more damage… so that could appear to be an explanation… but that would not explain why sometimes an attack on a 270 bot (or thereabouts) does as little or less damage as the attack on the 255…
The only explanation I can think of is that the red skill is failing, but why? Is this a bug or have I completely misunderstood how you are applying the invasion power ups - specifically as regards the skill levels. @Polaris I would appreciate an explanation.
