Penetration Mechanics

Some original research has revealed that I was pretty wrong about some aspects of the penetration writeup. Gauss and Railgun do in fact still take a 2-height pyramid, and lasers have some downright wonky behavior at high damage values, penetrating for 4 or even 5 vertical increments consecutively. The same behavior is unlikely to occur anywhere else due to the lack of damage or, in the case of missiles, simple template definition. Lasers are definitely not as simple as a "3-step pyramid", though.

If you planning to extrapolate a formula beware of rounding issues. Also you might want to try to ask Steve. I try not to PM him too often, unless I can't avoid it, but so far he was very helpful every time.--Mor (talk) 20:28, 4 February 2016 (PST)
Nah, got it. The exact distribution is unimportant, it ends up being pretty random at high damage, the important part is that it always penetrates with a pyramid length of sqrt(3x) where x is damage. TMarkos (talk) 17:42, 5 February 2016 (PST)
