gives you 73%+ shred/pen before flat pen.

I just played a Sona game, build iceborn, frozen heart, had 230 armor. Ran into a Jarmander, he has a built in 26% shred, 2x cleaver and whisper.

230 armor with 73% reduction is 53. With the flat pen from double cleavers and runes/masteries, I had 0 armor for having build 230. Literally 0 armor for 2 major armor items.

...
prepatch math

45 flat reduc from cleaver
lets say 15 flat pen from runes and 6 from masteries
then 40% last whisper, 12% aura, 10% mastery, 26% j4 = 64.8% pen or 35.2% left

so from 230 that would've left you with 57.7 armor

In case anyone was wondering, here's how the math works in OP's post.

total armor*(1-.08)(1-.12)(1-.3)(1-.15) = armor after percent reduction and pen

(100 armor -> ~48) - 56 = 0 (pen is not reduction and can't go below 0)
(200 armor -> ~96) - 56 = ~40
(300 armor -> ~145) - 56 = ~89

It's still a huge nerf to armor against people stacking pen, but not quite as bad as it looks in the OP.

58 armor gives 37% damage reduction. 58 armor to 0 armor is HUGE.

% Pen is multiplicative correct? If so none of your math is correct.

It is multiplicative. Where did I screw up? If I had been doing additive I would have ended with 111% instead of 73%.

Fun.

I'm no game designer, but I honestly have to wonder how broken **** like this manages to make it past both the designers, QA, and PTR testing to live. I mean, really? Come on.
easy, People on the Pbe are doing it wrong, i hereby suggest that we should ban all the pbe accounts and unban thsoe hata ctually passed data and feedback, isntead of those that jsut wanted o try out shiny new items and no give feedback".

The same reason BFT ever saw the light of day; none of them have a drop of common sense or logic.
