I'm open to changing it if there's a good reason, of course. Why do you think it should be changed?
A couple reasons.
1: 0.7x Atk for -1 is inaccurate (since it's technically 2/3 or .66 repeating), and that annoys me.
2: I find plenty of people know what a stage boost translates to, but I personally prefer the stage boost notation simply because that's what's used in the simulator, and while it's easy to translate +2 to 2x Attack (because that's what a player does commonly), the reverse translation is a bit more unwieldy- seeing 2x Attack doesn't instantly read +2 to me, and seeing 3x Attack definitely doesn't translate to +4 (as was the case with an earlier log that I saw on this).
It's just an aesthetic thing, but it's one that I think works better with the actual stage boost than the multiplier.
