Making missile damage constant


Kornel Kisielewicz:
This is something that stroke me the other day -- Berserk! is a game of tactical bloodshed. One of the most random parts that I noted from peoples posts is the effect of missile weapons, especially crossbow shots. What I was thinking is, that having already randomness in case of missile weapons (will it hit? - however distance <= 4 is a always hit ), it would be more tactical to make damage from missile weapons constant. This especially would be applied to crossbow shots and hunter shots...

Kornel Kisielewicz:
Ping? No more berserk fans present? :/

Skynet 2.0:
Maybe not entirely remove the randomness, just make it over a smaller range of damages. For example, change 2-9 damage to 5-6. That way the average damage would be about the same, and the individual missiles wouldn't have a large range of damages.
