I not good at quick, on the spot math, done in my head. I'm an accountant I do math on adding machines, computers and calculators all day. Doing math in my mind not on paper is something I don't have much practice at. I also don't like having to calculate a ratio in my mind while playing, I'm focused on so many other things, like planning etc..

To avoid using a calculator during play I'm creating a ratio chart/spreadsheet.

1) what is a very high attack value? I'm going up to 30, is that high enough?

2) what is a very high defense value? I'm going up to 21, is that high enough?

3) is this something people could use? I could upload to each SCS and OCS game file page so people could print a copy for themselves

Thanks for the help...

Thanks I can use that as a reference to check my numbers. I'm going to make mine a little easier on the eyes though.

50 kind of seams like over kill, especially on defense. What do you think about the actual possibilities of a 50 attack 50 defense?

I haven't really kept track of how high attacks I've seen in SCS. 50 does seem unlikely. Maybe going up to 40 would be enough.

I agree that that chart I posted is hard to read. It could use something like giving a background color to every few rows or columns like is usually done on SCS TECs and CRTs. It's also a lot of small numbers on a letter sized sheet of paper.

I'm using colors to code the ratios, and lines for the x,y axis.

I would post what I have so far but I don't see a way to turn my excel sheet into a picture so I can upload it.

This is what I have so far and along the lines I'm heading...



I'm thinking of increasing the attack value though.
