Please undo this change, or better yet, allow us to toggle between resistance ratings and resistance percentages. Displaying only resistance ratings obscures how resistances work in this game: it gives the false impression that resistances stack linearly.

Why not just simply show it as XXXXX resistance rating (YYY% dmg reduction).

Oh, is that why my ship's resists suddenly looked so goon on tribble? It's telling me rating and not actual damage mitigation? Color me disappointed... I thought my cruiser could suddenly hull tank thanks to some removal of resistance cap/diminishing returns. *sad face*

That would be nifty.

/cough

As well as showing Shield Damage Reduction, eh?

Maybe actually showing the Shield Regeneration too?

Dear god yes! More useful information and less obfuscation please. Oh, and Crew Resistance and Recovery rates, if we're begging for useful stats

...Though crew dies pretty darn fast regardless, come to thing of it.

Blasphemy! Then the players would see the numbers and math and there would be even more threads with the heretical word of "balance" somewhere in its title.

*walks in and kicks a can down the thread*


Why do they want new players to still not see those vital stats in their UI?

The Resistance RATING is useful for Theorycrafting and the people who enjoy spreadsheet calculation for Min/Max performance because the RATING details what's going on "under the hood" of the game engine.

The Resistance PERCENTAGE is what is useful AT A GLANCE by the casual player.



Ideal solution: show us both pieces of information, not just one or the other.
