Gamer math moment
/v/ here, this is a math valuation problem that's been at the back of my head for years.
Say that you deal 100 points of normal damage per atk. If you manage to crit, you deal 2x damage.
Along comes the next upgrade choice: 10% atk increase (deal 110 dmg now) VS 10% crit chance (10% chance to deal 200 dmg). Which do you take?
Textbook stats say they are the same, but are they really?
Also how do you account for the value of burst damage from crits, the fact they might outright take an enemy piece of the board.
For those /sci/bros here that game what are your thoughts?
