Half and double life points

Post #1 by o7_AP » Sat Mar 12, 2022 6:57 pm

I think that having buttons that automatically half and double your LP could be useful, a bunch of cards have to pay half your LP as cost (Solemn Judgement, Red Reboot, A Hero Lives, etc) Plus there's the new Dinomorphia archetype that revolves around halving your LP over and over.

Don't listen to these 2. With a little javascript, I was able to make a bookmark that, when clicked on, automatically halves your life points for you. https://forum.duelingbook.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=20637

Very cool, but you could still just use a calculator to figure out where you should be at

It's still faster to halve life points this way than with a calculator. With a calculator, you have to input your entire life point value, input the divide option, input 2, input = to get the answer, input that answer into the life point box, then hit Enter on your keyboard to submit it. With this javascript code, all you need is a single click of a button and all that is done for you.

Honestly if you can't divide by 2 in your head (especially for yugioh), you have bigger problems imo

Still a cool tool tho.

I'm not saying anyone can't divide by 2 in their head. I'm saying not every number ranging from 2 to 8000 can be divided by 2 in one's head quickly. Yes, basic numbers that consist of a single number followed by 3 zeroes (1000, 2000, 3000, etc) can be quickly calculated in our heads, but you're often going to find yourself wanting to activate/resolve something that requires half your life points while you have say, 7700 or so life points — numbers that are just not as easy to quickly calculate in one's head, especially with some of these new archetypes now coming out that focus on repeatedly halving life points. Using a calculator can work, but that slows things down. This is a faster way, and I'm glad you like it.

7000/2 is 3500. Then with 700/2 being 350, you can just add that onto the 3500 and get 3850. It isn't exactly hard to do even with complex numbers like 7700. Hell you can just divide them without the extra 0s to make the numbers smaller and even easier to use.

Mind you, if anyone tried that in their math class, they'd probably get the question wrong, even though the answer is right.

Also I never claimed that you did state that anyone can't divide by 2 in their head. It was a general statement.

This should be an option to click on the cards that halve LP, like how you can automatically pay the cost for Pot of Desires or whatever.
