I made a post a few days ago about a roll and damage resolution mechanic:

And an important complaint I have received is that the use of division should be prohibited because it will scare players away.

The mechanics consist in adding up a number on each unit token in the battle and dividing by 5 (always 5). Each slice of 5 points gives you a die to roll that hits on 4+, and the remainder of the division is kept for the next attack.

Do you think that this is too complicated or convoluted?

In a german-style game, that is probably too difficult, but if it's an american-style game, then I think it will be fine. Also, it won't scare players away as long as you don't mention it on the box.
