Good analysis of the two systems, but don't forget that the higher DX figure in TFT usually goes before an equivalently skilled character with armor, and so can often avoid damage completely by *disengaging*. :) It won't work for missile weapons and some other situations as well, granted, but just stepping back is sometimes the best defense, especially if there are several opponents.
