Any suggestions on fair ways to calculate damage that isn't too complicated? At the moment I'm using:

1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
public void damaged(int amount) {
   Random random = new Random();
   double damage;
   int maxDef = defense + getDefBonus();
   double percMinus = random.nextInt(maxDef - (maxDef / 2)) + (maxDef / 2);
   damage = amount - Math.ceil(amount * (percMinus / 100));
   hp -= (int)damage;
   alive = hp > 0;
}

Well, if that's how your game's damage calculation then nothing is wrong.

Don't create a Random object each time, store it and reuse it. Smiley
