    Very nice, only a couple problems I see:
    1) Lowest cooldown ONLY 0.03? You need to account for Shift+Enter values (I know that'd be very hard but if you did it, it would make this tool all the better)
    2) Accounting for abilities would be nice. (Another hard thing but of course use only Bliz made ingame abilities but that is a big part of battle that this misses sadly)

    Overall: This is a very good tool, I'll give it a 9/10, as it is still useful without the other stuff I mention, but if you added them then this would a mapmaker's GOD!

    Edit: Holy crap... Was using for my map, a 0.01 hp regen difference made a win in 14935 secs with 3% hp left after 5974 hits and a win in 15400.8 secs with 4% hp left 22001 hits. (First red won, 2nd blue won with that slight difference.. Wow...)

    Insaniac,

    Cooldown, I'll have a look into it.

    Abilities, well, that would be very very hard, and most normal units don't use combat abilities (give or take a few ;) )

    Real program, it is not a link to an online version, it just opens in a web browser and doesn't require an internet connection.

    Well, for the abilities, you'd have to program in every basic blizzard ability but for the options with them, their pretty much the same with every spell. A good spell for anything is the "Channel" spell, but anyway I'd say try hard as possible AFTER the cooldown thingy since this would be alot harder. GOODLUCK!

    This is awesome :) this is the first tool I've seen that I really need.

    Though it would be great to have the abilities, but I guess Ill have to do triel and error for that, still this will help tons.

    Or maybe you could make an ability balancer... somehow, then if all the abilities are balanced, it will only matter how many abillities you have.

    Hmm I'm trying to balance things, but it's kinda hard.

    What does it mean when it says that they win with 0% health left over, does that just mean they have less than 0.5% health left, or does it mean they are dead?

    Insaniac69, that's because the only tool moderator has been hit by a car and is effectively "dead" on the internet.

    At the moment we are trying to get a new tool moderator.

    And did you even make this? Because this looks exactly like the old unit balancer from Maps and Mods.

    There's a problem in that balance is not only accounted for battles of one unit vs one unit >_>

    Pretty useless if you change the percental damage a unit with specific armor type gets by a specific damage type.

    …and it really just looks like the old damage calculator.

    Nice program, although it would be nice to have multiple units on either or both sides, in case you wanted to test two types, and one is better off with another of it's type (Aka zergling)

    Sorry I don't find this useful, because units are pretty boring. So I tend to add at least one ability to every unit. This doesn't support abilities, which make a ton of difference.
