One thing I find irritating about the Enhanced Description Box for the new chance to hit system is the constantly changing values when you add or remove an attachment. For easier comparison I think it would be a good idea to always display all values (even those which have a +0% modifier) on guns.

The icons are confusing enough already, having what is displayed change all the time when you add or remove an attachment doesn't really help.

Therefore my suggestion would be to always display all NCTH values on gun type items even if the total modifier is + 0.

No thank you. The lists are already long enough to clutter them with useless +/-0 entries. Adding +/-0 entries will force us to continuously scroll the list if we are looking for a specific entry. :nono:
In addition to that adding useless entries will just slow everything.

If players want to know what an attachment does they can simply read attachment properties, can't they?

Instead of scrolling down I'd add new sub menu pages.

And it's not so much abut not knowing what an attachment does but more about what the gun does compared to other guns.

The amount of item properties that get constantly changed when you add or remove an attachment is simply confusing (and I'm especially thinking about the group of "not so veteran players"). It would be much easier to grasp the whole NCTH system if a gun would always display the possible variables. It's not like there are 2 millions of them... All in all they should rather easily fit into 3, maybe 4 sub pages at most.

That's what we have the "Compare Items" feature for. It shows the differences very well.
