Looting stats

Postby TheIceMage » Thu Oct 02, 2008 9:47 am

I'm curious what you think of the new looting stats. I put them in place for my looting-oriented teams so I can evaluate who's bringing home the bacon and who's getting put in the pig pen.

I think they're excellent - though I haven't dissected them properly. Two additional columns suggest themselves

- a "profit" column (=loot-bail-damage) and
- a "return" column which would be "profit"/(forays-stuff count)

Both of which I *could* calculate for myself, but that's what good reports are for...

I'm not sure I could calculate a profit column accurately, especially with damage in the equation. Here's three easy reasons why:

1) Damage costs different amounts to heal. Healing scratches is cheaper than healing heavy damage. Was your orc already hurt or is this just a scratch? /shrug

2) Not all damage costs anything to heal. Natural overnight healing may cover it.

3) There are teams that loot the merchant heavily (such as my Steal Plates) who have more than enough OrcAde lying around to heal the occasional wound that gets through their heavy armor.

I think the best route is to leave it up to you to determine what the numbers mean. For my own use, I have a team that I will determine in part who stays and who goes based on how they loot.

For me, I love the new stats! I usually have my "core" team who I know I'm going to keep, then I have to do some type of analysis to figure out which looters are worth keeping. This makes that process so much easier.

Yeah i like the Stats too. Always a mission to go into an orcs profile to find out whether he is a good looter and couldnt see how much stuff he looted. Thnx Ice
