By 23, did you mean 18/50?

Weight 30, str 23 +1.35 blows, dex 3 -1 blows, total 1.35 blows
Weight 30, str 3 -1 blows, dex 23 +1.83 blows, total 1.83 blows

Dexer with light weapon gets 35% more blows.

Weight 280 is moot, since neither str nor dex at 18/50 gives extra blows yet. You'd need 18/220 str to get max from str (+2.5 blows), and dex even at max wont give you max blows, nor will both at max net you full blows either.

Actually, as you liked to have a malus from low stats, I think it is too harsh what I made up at the moment in that formula. Granted these are quite silly extreme examples, but you really can't get any extra blows with heavy weapons at 18/50 - 3 combo. Which is probably just fine. =P Now if you meant 18/220 - combo then:

Weight 280, str 220 +2.5 blows, dex 3 -1 blows, total 2.5 blows
Weight 280, str 3 - 1 blows, dex 220 + 1.29 blows, total 1.29 blows

With weight 30 both get same total blows, since 18/220 is so overboard a 3.0lbs weapon that it maxes either str or dex to the +2.5 blows, while the other is -1 blows.

I assumed 23 was 18/50 when I looked at your spreadsheet.

Thanks for the example. I think I understand it now.
