KI, please fix your math when adding!

Again, we are back to the same old problems... Get something fixed, get a new update and get an old problem back...

Simple addition KI, it is simple addition... Let me clarify for you...

Hangman's Boots, +7% Resistance
Hangman's Cape, +12% Resistance
Hangman's Cape, +9 % Resistance
Pet with Spell Proof, +10% Resistance
Pet with Spell Defy, +5% Resistance

7+12+9+10+5=43 This is correct and how Math is supposed to be done!

Now, according to what KI has, this is what KI gives me in the game...
7+12+9+10+5=42? Sorry, but this is incorrect and needs to be fixed, again.

Should I check all of your math? Is the Power Pip chance not adding up correctly again? How about Damage Boosts and Accuracy Boosts?

Please fix these issues as quickly as possible, thank you!

No you are wrong. 7+12+9+10+5= 43 not 42. Simple mistake made by you. We're only human it's ok.

I have noticed this as well when using the Giant (+125) to Scarecrow (400) and only producing +483 to all enemies? My math shows it should be somewhere around 525 (125 + 400 = 525). Something does not add up?

Exactly, David, 7+12+9+10+5=43, not 42, but if you believe KI and their math skills, it would be 42 and not 43. Sorry, but I dont want KI to be teaching my children or anyone else's children how to add improperly!

Which is why I made this post, so KI can fix this problem immediately, because anyone who can add, knows the correct answer is 43, now if KI would just realize this, we would be off to a good start!

Sorry Robbie, but here is where math actually gets a little tricky. Lets take Gargantuan of 225, it will be easier to show you this way.

Scarecrow does 400 damage to all enemies and gives back 1/2 damage to your health.

So, if you boost Scarecrow with Gargantuan, the new damage is 550!

Why you ask? If you take 150 damage and give back 1/2 health, you get 75 health back, correct? 150+75=225, does it not?
So, if you take 400+150= you new damage boost is 550!

This is how proper math is done. Even simple math. If KI can figure out the mathmatics it takes for drain spells, why does it keep messing up with simple addition for resistance?

That is completely different and intended, since Scarecrow is a drain spell. Sun spells do not work at full enchanment, because those spells have a healing component to them.

He's right it doesn't really matter they designed the game let them do what they want

I am sorry, but I don't want my kids to learn that 5+1 is still 5!
I want them to correctly learn that 5+1=6.

You may not care and yes, it is KI's game, but I am the one who pays for it and it is supposed to be a family game, however, I dont buy things for my family that teach things I don't agree with.

Yes, you are correct, proven by paper and technology, but come on... 1% is not the end of W101! It may annoy picky players just for a little tiny difference. KI is busy as you would think as they would be. And here is some, what you could call, proof: https://www.wizard101.com/game/producers-letter-august2011
Read the steps.
