PvP Algorithms

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

What is a good equation/algorithm to determine the outcome of a battle between two players?

For example, I want the game to take into account the relative strengths and weaknesses of the players (strength, level, armor, buffs, weapons used, etc.) and apply damage to both players accordingly.

Any suggestions?

Might do a search on graduated, or weighted chance randoms.

I was thinking I might use to-hit tables. A la Dungeons & Dragons.

This wikipedia article should be of interest to game designers:

Probability of Kill

I hereby nominate this as the coolest wikipedia article title ever.
