No need a dev comment, it doesn’t work like this.
It change all movement cost, by adding arround 41% at the final cost of movement
base math, √(100²+100²) = 141
Everything after this assume that you are a bit slowed, because if you aren’t you won’t be catch by a Z : They need 143 per move, you need 141 !
First, when you act, You act, Then you wait for the action point needed. You always do your action whatever it’s movement or attack.
if you don’t trust me, think about this :
0- you say “i want to move”.
A Z is standing nearby you.
0- he say "i want to reach you/attack you"
If, someone would need to spend the movement point before doing the movement,
0- Z try to attack you
100- you move
100+ - z fail his attack because out or range
This never happened !
Another example :
0-You are waiting
0- Z move toward you
100- you finish waiting (can be less, depend what u’v done right before)
100- you attack the Z, and hit him, killing him.
143- Z finish his move, and change his square . DAFUCK ?
This never happened !
The ONLY way to being hit in this case, is that if you do a diagonal movement (150) while he do a normal movement (100, but for a z it’s way more, they have a speed of 70, so it will be something around 143 if i’m not too much stupid), allowing them to move then hit you
0- you move
0 he move
143 - he hit you
150 - you can act again
Well, i understand your point now. But i always tought that playing a turn per turn tactical-like game would always mean stuff like this.
(also, a really easy way to avoid being hit, his to move a bit in a normal way before trying to move in diagonal, so you will earn more “time” between you and him. more, if he isn’t alone, other guys behind will move in diagonal because they are packed while you more in a normal way, so they will be even more slowed)
ps: I believe that even if I’m wrong with some parts of this, it shouldn’t be far from what we got in game. I also understand that you understand my point, or well at last i believe.
And if i try what u’v sayd for 5 min, shower victime (115 speed, bare feet) i never get hit but one time after moving two time in diagonal (down left, then down right) while he only go down, but it was a lunge attack.
