Default Willpower

Derek,

Got a question. No matter what stats a gladiator has, when he's fighting, his willpower is 40. What constitutes willpower? Is it a combination of strength and endurance, or some intangible stat we can't see? Just curious

Default Re: Willpower

It's basically set up like "hit points", it measures a warrior's desire to continue to fight. The game is designed and balanced on starting at 40 (originally it was going to be 30, but thought that might shorten battles too much).

Ok, thanks for the info. I just find it strange that some fighters will go the distance with a tremendous amount of damage done to them, while others will get one lucky shot and collapse immediately, although they may have close to their 40 willpower points.

Default Re: Willpower

Each warrior has a hidden "endurance" rating that helps determine if warriors will be "wimps" or will get hurt or killed a little more easily than others (with random chance playing a small role too). I mainly use Willpower as an easy way to determine when a warrior gets defeated.
