As we all know, there are a rising majority of strength mercs and strength BHs that we face in battle (mainly 1v1). A great amount of these players have very high strength and very low support. More times than not, some of us who have 50 support or higher go last. These strength-players usually have <30 support and go first.

As a +5 focus Bounty Hunter, I have 45+10 support. The other day I fought this str merc with 27+2 support and he went first (we both were lvl 32*). Yes, first strike is focused on luck, but wouldn't you say 55 support should have a much, much greater chance to strike first than someone with 29 support? Should we have a slight buff in First Strike (Starting % [thank you TurkishIncubus] )

Of course, we all know this will be a buff on support mercs; so what do you guys think? Any OTHER solution to First Strike?

*First Strike is greatly increased for the player that is a lower level than his/her opponent. In most cases, I fight STR Mercs & STR BHs at my same level with low support.

Most players with high support start the battle , if you buff first strike % nothing will change.

You cant buff Starting % just in 1 battle STR merc go first , im sure %80 of the time you go first and 55 support isnt enough to start always :S , if you had like 70-90 than you can start most of the time

I support this as well, mainly because too many str merc get first strike when my support is at least 30 more than theirs.

yup... might also ballance the ' STR mercs ' a bit so that they have a lesser chance having the first strike with only 30 sup


Having a Signature is too mainstream

Funny thing about this...

Titan never explained how the First Strike chances are calculated. Not once, not ever.

Can't really continue this discussion without knowing that, or else we'll be forced to use anecdotes, which are totally pointless to prove anything. If you think using anecdotes are good for proving anything, you're in serious denial.

How about drastically lowering the chance to start for people who have 60 or more base strength or support?

^That doesn't make any sense. Support is the stat that increases the chance for first strike. That would just be contradicting that advantage of support if it were to decrease it after a certain ammount.

^Makes lots of sense because offensive stats hit too high when spammed and should go 2nd. Dex should really be the first strike stat.

i say that the lowest support should SHOULD NEVER GO FIRST, and should have 95% less chance to crit, deflect, and again first strike then the highest support. any1 agree?

i support this discussion.

@TurkishIncubus, no change... i have 110 support and STR mercs still go first, no matter what, and they have more chance to stun me then any1 else nowadays..

I find it hard to believe that every time you face someone with lower support than you have, the opponent goes first. Lower-level characters actually do have a buff for first strike, so that might be part of the trend you're seeing.

^Totally untrue. I battle level 32s, Im a 31, and they ALWAYS GO FIRST despite my huge support.

that seems odd- I'll ask about the numbers- I didn't work it out, but I don't think that support actually offers a huge advantage in first strike, but it does seem odd that you never go first ever.

I think your exaggerating. I find it sad how I go first against 27 f2ps without an armor.

@PD: Actually, we do know part of the First Strike formula. Every 8 more support you have over your opponent increases your chance to go first by 1%. The unknown part is how the lower level bonus works, but from experience I can say that greater the level difference, the more affect the lower level bonus has. At -1 level it doesn't seem to have a big affect, but at -5 levels you will almost never go first.

I can't see the first strike advantage given by Support being buffed more when Support is already the strongest stat.

^Well not never, but still, after a 2 minute battle session(5 battles, 5 str mercs with minimum support, 5 2-hit KOs, 4 stuns), i find that I went first once, and they were all 32s with less support.


I went first 1/5 against 32s, but 7/10 against my friends merc thats level 29. But i did have 30+ more support.

    @Ashari- thanks, like I said, it's not a huge advantage.

    I can say from my experience, that first strike indeed matter.
    But a str merc will never beat me. They have usually 30 support, while I have 140 support. They have never critted or stunned me. A little support makes no difference, but 80 difference will be evident.
    The solution? Get more support.

    No, that's not the trend. 99% a STR merc or STR BH i face is a lvl 32 like me. So the "lower-level buff" doesn't apply. I'm still wondering why someone with 27+2 support has an the advantage of going first like 95% of the time.
