He wants to use a heavy book as a weapon, any ideas on how to do the damage? I’m thinking just running it as a two handed club

Hello everyone! figured its about time someone hard crunched the numbers and got exact estimates of percent damage all the weapons can do so yeah here it is. Thanks to the crews that were super cool in helping me get this done, their names are in the images provided so credit to where its due

1) Sword: This one people are likely to already know, But I tested it anyway just to be sure, A regular sword attack does exactly 20% of your health. This was calculated by counting the pixels lost and dividing it by the total pixels in the health bar. (banana for scale) Sword Damage Now because I'm dumb, I forgot to save the picture of the lunge damage, however, considering the fact that the general consensus on the damage swords do was exactly correct, I'm gonna assume that 50% is correct for the sword lunge.

2) Pistol: Next up we have what is clearly the best weapon in the game with absolutely no personal bias. Bearing in mind that I didn't think about considering damage values at a distance cause once again i am an idiot (If i find another nice crew I'll edit this post with whether or not there is a difference biased on distance) the pistol has good range with a respectable amount of damage. (banana for scale) Pistol damage Clocking in at just over half of your health, the pistol does 53.8% meaning that if you're quick two-shotting someone at mid range is not only possible, it might be easy.

3) Eye of reach: The eye of reach is one of the worst weapons in the game in terms of PVP combat capabilities, that is not to say that someone couldn't get good use out of it, but the scope is slow and clunky, so aiming feels like a chore, and due to the pistol doing over half health, both weapons take the same amount of shots to kill someone. That being said it does to the most single pellet damage in the game (banana for scale) Eye of Reach damage At exactly 63.8% damage, one shot from the eye of reach followed by two swings of your sword will down any pirate that couldn't chomp a banana, saving you a whole sword swing in comparison to the pistol. The Eye of reach does have its uses, but mid to close range should not be one of them.

4) Blunderbuss: Now time for the one that took the most math, the blunderbuss. First, we need to see how many pellets come out in a single shot the answer is 10. Then we need to see how much each single pellet does. (banana for scale) Blunderbuss Damage Because I was the one being shot for science, I cannot guarantee that I was only hit with one, however I was assured that this was the case, and I'm sure we can trust the crew, I mean, they are pirates after all. However, due to the "single shot" only taking 14.76% of my health, we can definitely assume it was only a single pellet, as if it were two or more, the damage wouldn't add up correctly to kill a pirate in a single shot. So assuming one pellet does about 15% of your health, only 7 out of the 10 pellets fired need to connect with the intended target in order to kill them. Which explains why the blunderbuss is a great option for boarding.

tl;dr: Sword: 20% Lunge: 50% Pistol: 53.8% Eye of reach: 63.8% Blunderbuss: 14.76% per pellet, at ten pellets per shot.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk please let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know.

So? It's not like joined you on purpose to do that, and you weren't waiting for your friend to get back, just kinda seems like a dick move to me

My friend recorded the clip, but I'm the one who pulled the trigger

I'm not gonna wall of text y'all, But long story short there were three galleons (myself included) all fighting over the outpost, after almost 4 hours of chasing and waiting at the outpost for them to show back up, we stole the key from them and I stupidly opened the vault instead of hiding it. They sunk us and killed us... But not before I hid the stronghold chest! I manage to make it back there after the rest of my crew left disheartened from a very upsetting loss of the Stronghold skull and found it right where I left it hiding in the corner. Felt good to at least get that.

i only read your first paragraph. i understand they might feel backed into a corner but whos fault is it? they promised more content they did not deliver. thats not to say the future cant be bright but they need to admit there mistakes and announce a clear plan of action no more vague bullshit. this could become a flagship series but they need transparency im excited for this games future but 60$... that was a waste of my money in this games current state

When I was waiting for the game to launch I watched a bunch of their videos and I dont see anything missing from what they promised. The game was overhyped a little by the community yeah, but Rare gave us exactly what they promised, if you didn't think it was worth $60 you probably shouldn't have bought the game in the first place

incredible stories like this one are why I play the game

Oh man. You poor soul

Anyone else think the piston skeletons are like ridiculously accurate? Like, if I’m running away zig zagging these guys honestly shouldn’t be able to hit me 90% of the time

What if, instead of it being a day of the month, it’s counting backwards from release? It was 8 before and the newest video they changed the dice to 9. That would make it the 12th and the 11th respectively which coincidentally IS a weekend!

5+3 = ? (8)

5+4 = 9

8+9 = 17... 17th? that's on the weekend. 17 days til final beta? the final beta is after release?! genius marketing!

8-9 = 1... 1 day til final beta? 1hour? 1 year?

the 8 changed to 9... but wait, if you write out 5 and then 3 and then....

5>><<3 merge them, it makes a 9. maybe it was just 9 all along. 9th for final beta? 9 days till beta.. 17th again... hmm. 9 player group? the square root of 9 is 3.... Half-life 3 confirmed?

my work is done here.

I am attempting to create a pyramid that looks like this:

                 1
                 **
           2        3
          ***     ****
       4         5        6
     *****     ******  *******

using loops, I decided to use for loops because I know them best and can manage to create the numbers part of it reliably, if anyone could take a look at my code and help me figure out how to get the * under the numbers that would be great

#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
    //local declarations
int rows;
int numb;
int spaces;
int star;
int number=1;
int number_of_starSpaces;
int number_of_spaces;
int number_of_rows;
int number_of_stars;
int actualRows;

printf("Enter the rows:\n");     //entering rows
scanf("%d",&actualRows);
printf("The output of the program is:\n");
number_of_rows=actualRows/2;
number_of_spaces=number_of_rows;
number_of_starSpaces=number_of_rows;
number_of_stars=0;

for (rows=1; rows <= number_of_rows; rows++)
    {
        for(numb=0;numb < rows;numb++)
            {
            for(spaces=1;spaces<=number_of_spaces;spaces++)
                {
                    printf("\t");
                    number_of_spaces=number_of_spaces-1;
                }
                    printf("%d\t\t",number);
                    number=number+1;

            }
printf("\n");
for(star=0;star <= rows ;star++)
                {
            for(spaces=1;spaces <= number_of_starSpaces;spaces++)
                {

                    if(number_of_stars!=number_of_starSpaces)
                    {
                    ++number_of_stars;
                    printf("\t");
                    }
                    else
                    break;
                }

                printf("*");
                }
printf("\n");
    }

}
//main

I am relatively new to coding so please don't be too harsh

Fellow brethren, I wish to become an acolyte of the mighty Brodin, and begin making gains, as in getting swole of mind and wallet, I have neglected my body. The problem is, I have never had an exercise plan before, and have no clue where to begin, I know Inmust seek out an iron temple, and there are many near me, but from then I am not certain, the diet, the proper form for proper prayer, please brothers, help one who whishes to cast off the teachings of Broki and learn the ways of gains Wheymen

Brethren Mehdi has shown many to the iron path, and his is a prayer regimen worthy of praise.

Start your journey here brethren and learn to appreciate the holy trifecta. Allspotter guide you, wheymen.
