# 1 Cryptic, Willpower Does Not Work
06-24-2012, 12:23 PM
Willpower does not grant 75% resistance as claimed, and has not done so since the patch following the March 15 patch which made the change to 75%. (EDIT: to clarify, it worked as described from March 15 until the following patch, and has since not worked.)

I would very much appreciate at least an acknowledgement that you know that this does not work, even if you have no plans of ever fixing it.

It's true, willpower doesn't work. I kept saying I'm not going to buy another ship, but I always do. Lousy willpower.

Test conducted today, 27 June. Target character had 9 willpower, no relevant passives, and no relevant gear. According to March 15 patch notes, should have 75% resistance. 0% dodge chance (standing, no Omega, no passives). No flank shots.

Test results follow, for three different powers, listing their knockback proc chance (Proc Chance), the frequency of knockback that would be expected if Willpower granted 75% resistance (Predicted), the number of knockbacks out of the total number of tests conducted (Tests), and the percentile value corresponding to that number of knockbacks (Actual Result).

[CODE]Power Proc Chance Predicted Tests Actual Result
Arcwave Setting 66% 16.5% 42/67 62.6%
Tachyon Harmonic 50% 12.5% 12/37 32.4%
Telekinesis 100% 25% 10/10 100%[/CODE]

Note that tests conducted immediately following the March 15 patch provided results close to the Predicted values in this list, so this /was/ working, for a week, before the subsequent patch broke it.

You have now been 'looking into this' for a month and a half. I described the means of reproduction clearly. The bug remains present. I would appreciate acknowledgement that the bug exists, even if no solution is forthcoming.

I thought I'd drop in and point out that WILLPOWER STILL DOESN'T WORK AND CRYPTIC DOENS'T CARE.
