But see, even that is more than most people are going to care about. A simple multiplication is easier to remember and apply in practice, and having the numbers be somewhat high means that they won't come up unless the player tries to do something absurd, which is also good.

I'd far prefer a system that is very simple, easy to remember, and not too intrusive to playing the game.
