Warrior: sonic blast, gauss gun, blink, absorption
Scion Dower

All ammo was recorded using amount of ammo listed in blink slot. This may have resulted in systemic error. Furthermore, I recorded using a stopwatch, so that is a source of random error on my part, which I tried to minimize by performing 2 trials and averaging the results. For more accurate results, best to perform using sonic blast as its ammo cost goes up and down by a factor of 1. I just didn't have the time to do that during the test runs as I had to leave soon :P

All tests were conducted 2 times per column. I found the results from the 14 blink 100%hp healing times quite strange, so I conducted the tests more than 2 times, but kept getting almost the same results each time.

EDIT: I want to clarify, when it says 6 blinks or 14 blinks, this means that this is the amount of blink ammo I had the moment I got on the dower to heal.

this is why you make a good player/tester, Sly: you notice stuff:

fvtank.odf

Not Morphed:

maxHealth = 3500
maxAmmo = 3000
addAmmo = 5.0
addhealth = 0.0

Morphed:

maxHealth = 2500
maxAmmo = 3000
addAmmo = 0.0
addhealth = 9.0

Yeah I was aware of the hp difference between morphed units, but I wanted to give people a comparison of how much time they would actually save, since I still see the majority of people not morphing when they are grabbing pods or healing on the dower.

ah, right; sorry, didn't think of that (brain drain).

*wonders if pods should have a team filter on them*

Location: Atheists are MORONS
Haven't played in a while, but I remember morphing to one mode (combat I think) affects the craft's attributes instantly, while one waits for the animation to finish.

It may not always be worth morphing for pods if you must wait for the animation to finish.
I do always morph on the Dower, though.
