No words to this chapter...
If, for example, someone's single baang has a power of 1 (lets not worry about the units of that), but when they use 3 baangs, each baang has a power of .75, using more baangs has more potential power. If the power of 3 is .33, or even something like .25, then it is an entirely different matter. (Of course, there is still potentially more value in using 3 over 1, even if it ends up being overall weaker)
Haha I always thought of rooms/baangs a little differently. I never thought of it as each room does the same damage (as in everyones room has a value of 1) and its a % reduction in each hit, I always though of it like damage. Say maybe baam's rooms each do 100dmg, while urek can deal out 1000dmg a room. Who really knows, because it seems like your attacks are weaker while your learning, and when its mastered it shouldn't have a handicap on it anymore. Im kind of basing this off when baam first learned his fist destruction technique it was really pathetic and weak. Now its mastered and he does full damage. But the saying More baangs doesnt mean more power could just be related to pure damage. Each of baams rooms do 100% damage as the previous, but his overall damage is like 100+ 100+ 100+ 100+ 100+ 100= 600 vs. ureks 1 room of 1k damage.
Kyaaaaaa!!! I'm just to hyped to comment something serious, but what an incredible chapter was!!!! The best of the week, no doubts!
Great chapter!!! Agreed! It's the best of the week!
Anyway I don't get the confusion about the Bangs. I understands SIU's words as follow: your power is divided by the number of Bangs you use, overall your power doesn't increase with the number of Bangs.
The number of Bangs for me is a matter of skill, not power. More bangs means you can use more shinsoo techniques at the same time. For example when Baam first tried to kill the Bull, he tried you to use 2 Bangs, one to Stop the Bull and other to strike it. But he couldn't (not enough skill), so he completely focused on striking.
Now a person has their own capacity, ie, power level. If they use 1 technique=1 Bang they can put 100% of their shinsoo capacity into it, if they use 2 tech=2 Bangs the maximun they can put behind each is 50%, if not less because "opening" a Bang might be in itself Shinsoo consuming. The number of techniques one can use simultaneously will not make their power grow. Let's say if Baam has 1000 units of Shinsoo capacity for example, this capacity will not suddenly increase to 1500 or 2000 just because he decided to perform 2 techniques at once.
The number of Bangs is a matter of skill, it means you can do more stuff at the same time. In this particular situation if you're fighting 2 opponents it means you can attack them both at once, of defende AND attack at the same time, more Bangs will also mean more possible combinations like these.
I'm still a little confused on the part when he threw the lighting spear did he freeze the attack in mid air or did the lighthouse becuase when he came down the spear was still frozen in mid air then it exploded when he hit the ground?
I think it's all about concentration/skill.
If think about Mazino, what's more powerful? he putting all his strength in a single room or putting all his strength in 2 rooms?
I don't think that if he creates 2 rooms, their power will be 50% each of a single room. And I don't think that a single formula can calculate it. As the user get more skilled, more rooms he can use, also he could lose less strength on the use of these rooms.
It's like: Baam can create a second room with almost the same amount of power of a single room, but as he tries to create a third room, he needs more concentration for this new room.. so all 3 rooms would lose an amount of power and the same goes on and on..
At least it's how I get it.
Would it be too much for Baam to be one of the rare people whose baangs get more powerful the more he uses or would it be accepted because Baam is an irregular and irregulars get overpowered abilities?
Also, there is no way that Baam doesn't reveal himself to Koon next chapter. (that is assuming that Koon might not recognize him) He is going to HAVE to ask about Rachel.
