WCIII Armor-Damage Reduction Calculator

Submitted by 13Stallion
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This Tool will allow you to find the specific damage reduction value associated with a units armor value.
-You can view both the WC3 GUI Value or the raw damage reduction value.
-You can modify the reduction% from 6% to any other positive value, allows you to calculate gameplay constant changes
-This is useful if you are making an rpg/hero arena etc.. and you wish to know how much damage reduction a hero will recieve with a certain amount of armor
-This is in fact using the exact formula that wc3 uses to calculate damage reduction from armor

*note a unit can NEVER receive 100% damage reduction, the value should reach 99.9% when the armor reaches (99,999/reduction%) or (16666 armor with 6% reduction) which is most likely impossible in WC3

-This will only work for windows
-Coded in VB'08/VB.net
-Please give any Feedback/Suggestions/Future requests

    If it works for Vista then it's certainly compatible with Windows 7.
    Add it to the list. :smile:

    This tool proved useful to me as i didn't know exactly how much the raw damage reduction is and how the value for 1 point of armor decreases as armor itself increases.

    Should make a reset button, for teh noobs who dont know the default armor reduction %

    You also dont need the calculate button if the results are automatically updated when you enter the numbers.

    What is the forumula Blizzard uses then? Also, not doubting you or anything, but where did you find the formula? I was kind of looking for it myself and couldn't find it anywhere. I wonder why they did it this way...

    Thanks man this is useful, +rep.

    At first glance I though this would be useless (or at most I find no use for this at first) but now it's one of my frequently used tools... thanks a lot for making it!

    Great program (works great if you can have the program running and wc3 in window mode), though I have a question:

    Are there any maps that allow you to use this as practice; specifically, give you ratios, feedback and damage values?


    edit: So far I would give this a five for what the program does. I just wish it did more but it does say an armor calculator!
