Clueless? A Joke? I think not. If I look at the numbers, the defense will have 100% attack/defense boost after 18 battles. At that point, the attack/defense will go up by 20% each battle. After 23 battles, the defense is at 200% attack/defense boost. After 28 battles, it's 300%. 38 battles - 500%. Eventually attrition will bring any fighter to his knees.
