I have 5 dodge skill. Before, this was sufficient to dodge a normal attack/lunge from a zombie about 80% of the time, with 1 torso encumbrance. In the current experimentals, it seems like zombies hit me 9 out of 10 times. I’m not surrounded, the only dodge-affecting encumbrance I have is 1 torso encumbrance, and it’s only a single attack from a normal zombie.
Probably more fallout from the recent critter unification. :-/ Thanks for reporting.
