100% more attacks is only actually 66% more hits.

Also, it isn't 100% more attacks. Because you'll always be charging a vehicle, so it's 2 attacks (1+1) for the Spear and 3 (1+1 2 weps +1 charge) for the witchblade.

So, it's 33% more attacks. Unless you're charged, in which case it's a Walker and unless that starts with "War" the Singing Spear is automatically better simply because now you're hitting AV 12+.

So, if the Witchblade only gets 33% more attacks, for it to be better in all situations, the Singing Spear must be <23% better at penetrating when it hits (since they both have the same chance to hit, 33% more attacks is not actually 33% more hits, it's 2/3rds of that (Hit on 3+) or 22% more hits)

So, let's look at the numbers.

A Witchblade:

VS AV10: Chance of a Glance + Pen is 7+, is 58.33%

VS AV 11: Chance of Glance + Pen is 8+, is 41.66%

VS AV 12: Chance of Glance + Pen is 9+, is 27.77%

We can stop there, because it gets progressively worse.

Singing Spear:

AV 10: Autoglance, 100%

AV 11: 83%

AV 12: 66%

So, a Singing Spear is 100/58.33 or 71% better at penning AV 10. 83/41.66 or 99% better at penning AV 11. 66/27.77 or 237% better at penning AV 12.

This is all greater than 22% (or even 34% if you assume autohits, so even against a vehicle which did not move)

Therefore a spear is better against vehicles in every situation. QED.

Math is not a tool to prove you are right. It is a tool to determine who is right. Sometimes, that isn't you.

You can either accept this, or lie to yourself about it. But don't try to lie to math. It can't hear your whining.
