Card inconsistencies

Card inconsistencies

Can anyone explain why there are such large inconsistencies between cards?

For instance there is a major problem with the dark card Nether Queen. I'm using one presently in a dark team with a Rapunzel leader and using a friend's leader card Nemesis for support.

However, although they have similar active skills (the ones you have to wait for until they are available) they are incredibly inconsistent and the Nether Queen is massively underpowered with it's retaliation attack even though it's normal attack is way higher than Nemesis.

Make sense of these comparative figures if you can :

My 8* Nether Queen is level 59/60
Attack stat - 1425
Retaliation skill - Very powerful dark attack
Normal attack in use - 140k
Retaliation in use 32.7k

6* Nemesis level 8/40
Attack stat - 1361
Retaliation skill - Moderate dark attack
Normal attack in use - 22.3k
Retaliation in use - 44.7k

How on earth can a low level Nemesis card have a better retaliation attack than my far superior Nether Queen? It makes absolutely no sense at all and it must be a mistake with the Nether Queen's retaliation.

Nemesis's skill description is misleading as the retaliation multiplier is actually 10X (extremely powerful retaliation, Nemesis Queen retaliation is 7X). We will update Nemesis's skill description to reflect the actual retaliation multiplier.

In summary:
Nether Queen: Normal 30X, retaliate 7X
6/7* Nemesis: Normal 5X, retaliate 10X
6* Nemesis: Normal 20X, retaliate 10X

I still don't understand the massive difference though.

What does the X represent? What are you actually multiplying by 7,10,20 etc.?

Yes, actual damage = (card's attack * skill multiplier * passive multiplier bonus * active multiplier bonus) - boss defense.
Nether Queen's normal skill damage is 30X, while the activated retaliation damage is only 7X (less than 25% of skill damage)
6/7* Nemesis normal skill damage is 5X, while the activated retaliation damage is 10X (eg. twice as powerful as normal skill damage)

Except for the 6/7 star 5-turn limited cards, normal skill damage is usually much higher than the activated retaliation damage.
