Damage Reduction Badge

If it’s a “reduction”, how can it be a “+xx?

It makes my maths hurt

    @lkj_tim from my understanding damage reduction is percentage only. Are you seeing an actual number or a percentage?

    I haven't seen a damage reduction badge with an absolute value yet since the damage reduced is based on the enemies damage given it's typically a percentage.

    If yours is a "number" or "absolute value" please share a screen shot.

    You’re right.. Now that i see it’s a percentage, it makes sense.

    Thanks!

    + reduction is no strange math though.
    Example: you have 0 reduction. Add +100 reduction and you now have 100 reduction.

    It doesn't matter in this case, but It's your math that hurts.
    Positive reduction is how you calculate, negative reduction is actually adding.

    So damage reduction must be a positive number.

    The term "reduce" indicates a lesser amount than normal. A "negative" so to speak. So if it said "minus" and "reduce" I'd think it would confuse people.

    Not only that, it would go against math. 0 - (-100) = +100.
    That is just an agreement in math, if we can't agree on that... Forget about math.

    It's at the hospital where I first got confused with this. I was thinking that surely it should display, - x mins. But it has the word "reduction" before it.
