[480] Some inconsitancies/improvement in combat log

Question

post-32092-0-70533200-1427078976_thumb.jpg

 

In the combat log, I notice some inconsistencies and improvements that could be made.

 

1) Many lines do not end with a period. Exemples include

 

...and hits with additional effect. Petrified (4.3 sec)

BB Fighter hits Nridek for 39 Pierce damage. Prone (4.8 sec)

 

This should be

...and hits with additional effect. Petrified (4.3 sec).

BB Fighter hits Nridek for 39 Pierce damage. Prone (4.8 sec).

 

Basically, when there's a status effect with a duration, the final dot is missing.

 

2)  Ellipsis are not followed with a space. Exemple

...and hits with additional effect. Petrified (4.3 sec)

 

This should be (also adding the final dot)

... and hits with additional effect. Petrified (4.3 sec).

 

3) Combined results are not pluralized correctly, nor to they include the final dot. Exemples include

 

Gunketeer: 1 Miss, 3 Graze, 1 Hit

BB Priest: 4 Miss, 4 Graze

 

These should read

 

Gunketeer: 1 Miss, 3 Grazes, 1 Hit.

BB Priest: 4 Misses, 4 Grazes.

 

4) Combined results could include the final damage. For exemple

 

Gunketeer: 1 Miss, 3 Grazes, 1 Hit for 43 Pierce Damage.

BB Priest: 4 Misses, 4 Grazes for 12 Pierce Damage.

 

5) Inconstancy between some enemy names and enemy abilities. For exemple

 

Crystal Eater (Crystal-Eater's Freezing Pillar): 2 Graze, 3 Hit, 1 Crit

 

This Crystal Eater should be consistently hyphenated (or consistently unhyphenated).

 

6) The result of some attacks often precede the attack roll. For exemple

 

BB Fighter hits Nridek for 39 Pierce damage. Prone (3.8 sec)

BB Fighter (Knock Down) hits Nridek.

 

or

 

Crystal Eater casts Crystal-Eater's Freezing Pillar.

Crystal Eater killed BB Rogue.

Crystal Eater (Crystal-Eater's Freezing Pillar): 2 Graze, 3 Hit, 1 Crit

 

or

 

Party gained 250 experience.

Bestiary Progress - Crystal Eater 83%. 1200/1440xp earned.

Gunketeer killed Crystal Eater.

 

These should be correctly ordered as

 

BB Fighter (Knock Down) hits Nridek.

BB Fighter hits Nridek for 39 Pierce damage. Prone (3.8 sec)

 

(or even better BB Fighter (Knock Down) hits Nridek for 39 Pierce damage. Prone (3.8 sec))

 

and

 

Crystal Eater casts Crystal-Eater's Freezing Pillar.

Crystal Eater (Crystal-Eater's Freezing Pillar): 2 Graze, 3 Hit, 1 Crit

Crystal Eater killed BB Rogue.

 

and

 

Gunketeer killed Crystal Eater.

Party gained 250 experience.

Bestiary Progress - Crystal Eater 83%. 1200/1440xp earned.

 

or even better

 

Gunketeer killed Crystal Eater.

Party gained 250 experience. (Bestiary Progress - Crystal Eater 83%. 1200/1440 XP earned.)
