if someone use defending-system like anti-aircraft missiles he get "lesser dmg" if he is beeing hittet? o.o
or if someone use a shield... you get "lesser dmg" if you dont block the hit?
if you never played another mmorpg before you never would refer defense with dmg-reduction. its just as illogical like its now.
wordly "defense" is only the oppsite of "offense". what it makes exactly isnt said with it.
only some defending affects...
here it doesnt reduce the dmg. I think that would crush the hole gamebalance, too. TerraeMotus with more dmgreduction than now.. xD
and i dont think that marlon will change it only coz other games make that so. (except he want to change it)
