Hello, a question about the nature of the strength characteristic.
The description of the strength characteristic reads: "Strength is used to determine the power of a melee attack. The stronger the attack, the higher the chance to cause critical damage when striking your opponent."
As far as I can tell, Strength is only ever used in the combat situation, where having a strength of 4+ grants an increasing bonus to the combat situation, which can ignore armor when this enhancement surpasses the maximum age bonus. And having a Strength of 1 grants a CS bonus to the squad attacked.
I feel as though I'm missing something. Is the only benefit to increasing strength the CS enhancements for having a strength of 4 or higher? Granted the CS bonus is great, but that'd mean there's no bonus from going from 2 strength to 3 other than getting closer to 4 strength. Which seems to make the two-handed upgrade for melee weapons rather pointless on 2 strength units, among other +1 strength enhancement 1 upgrades. Is there any other bonus for increasing strength beyond the CS bonus, or for taking +1 strength weapons on 2 strength units. Or is that the intention?
