I specified that I was not into arguing on this post, just wanted to give my two cents. Let's get this over with.
a) When an apple weighs ten pounds and an orange weighs one pound, clearly there is something wrong.
b) I already explained this in the Yoga post, please read? Plus, the overall health is 2,500 (all three combined) can qualify it as a tank. Add the level fifty perk for the fourth Punk, and it increases to 3,200. This is around equal to a level 35 Timber Beast. This can be considered common ground. If you like, I could compare this to the highest damage Survivor unit. Theres one issue- the highest Damage survivor unit (besides Snipers) are actually Fire Marshalls.
- Both have over 2,400 health when all adds up
- Both have one of the highest damages on either side.
As far as I'm concerned, this could be considered common ground. Also, the experiment isn't theoretical; Pyromancer showed a clear screenshot of a single, buffed Punk clearing out a squad containing of four units, two being Timber Beasts at level 29. It's also worth mentioning that the punk was only level 20.
c) Countless? There are five at one spot, maximum. Usually there are only three, and at an objective (where it matters the most) there is only one. Also, I assume all three Punks are attacking the unit with Taunt.
d) I also ignored the fourth Punk that can be added at level 50. It's even. I even ignored the buff that comes into effect upon death. I also ignored the fact that Punks can be resurrected. And before you say I ignored the fact that the Marshall can be resurrected, I would like to point out I see far more Morticians and Undertakers than Surgeons and Sawbones.
I also ignored the "greatly increased buffs." Really, I should reduce the cooldown. If anything, this graph is underestimating the power of the Punks.
e) It is necessary to zoom things in to isolate the issue. In a main battle, these things would even out due to the Zombies attacking the squad and the other units in the squad. It's like an algebra equation. It's okay, within the ballpark, to take away a Commando and a Medic if it means taking away 50 drones, some Defliers, a few Behemoths, etc. While it isn't a classic 25 + 3x = x + y equation, it's close enough considering this is an online game. I also did this to simplify the data- it would be much too complicated for many to understand if I factored in all units.
You can also consider this as the scenario where three Punks automatically go to the unit with Taunt, which is the Fire Marshall. There is only one unit in the squad, for it is in front of the objective.
You are entitled to your own opinion, I recognize that. Arguing with me is going to get nowhere, just like it did in the last post. I respectfully ask that you refrain from starting an argument (debate, sorry) here. Maybe you could do what @Cavy did and engage in a calm, friendly discussion?
Also, which unit would you like me to compare it to? Name one and I'll make a graph for it, given the right data.
