Re: less random dice

Postby zimmah on Thu Sep 15, 2011 7:35 pm

i'd support the 'no dice option' over this one.

i believe the no dice option has been suggested before, it's basicly like this:

you have the option while creating the game to choose for this option, and in a game with no dice when 6 armies face 4 armies they will always take the country and have 2 armies left (1 on each country). the outcomes of battle will allways be predictable like this. it will be impossable to attack from a country with 2 armies to avoid any balance issues.

Bad idea, -1.

I like the dice just how they are. leave them be.

If you rely on not getting horrible streaks to win, then you're not a good enough player to begin with. Streaks are a part of the game, just like the board game version. Many people just get greedy or stupid with their rolling procedures. The dice are fine just the way they should be.

If some kind of "make the dice more fair" algorithm were added to reduce good/bad streaks, can you imagine how loud the complaints will be when people feel screwed by bad dice? Because now there will be an actual human-created algorithm to blame!

Leave the random dice alone, that's my vote.

stop crying about the damn dice. just become a better player through strat, and the streaks of winning will be longer than the losing regardless of the dice.

[url]MajorCommand.com[/url] has an option for fixed force which lets you have set battle outcomes.
I think its sounds cool but its only for premiums. I think that's weird because fixed force would be cheaper.
They would know we copied them though. You know MajorCommand has a lot of cool options but not very many maps and it is very very slow. Conquerclub is probably at least 10x faster.

CC Dice Teller 3.0

Postby grifftron on Tue Dec 06, 2011 11:32 pm

Welcome to "CC Dice Teller 3.0"


Concise description:
After its predecessors CC Dice Teller 1.0 & CC Dice Teller 2.0, Dice Teller 3.0 will be able to tell you what you are gonna roll 5 rolls ahead unlike DT 1.0 which could only tell you 1 roll ahead and DT 2.0 which could only tell you 3 rolls ahead.



How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
This would be great for when you are attacking huge stacks, you can just click on DT 3.0 see what you will roll in the next 5 rolls and decide if it will be worth it or not.
‹army of nobunaga› me and so many other people including people in your own clan look at you as a joke

I don't know if this is possible :s From what I know (which isn't a lot), the "dice" are picked from the string of 50 000 numbers. And since people are constantly taking turns, your "next 3/5" numbers are always going to be changing based on who else is rolling the dice.

Maybe someone who is a bit more tech savvy can confirm/deny this.

The dice are fair (as has been posted many many times). Changing the way a randomization code works won't effect the direct outcomes of the dice.

Maybe CC could raise the price of premium to $100 a year. With the extra income, you guys could pay an army of homeless people to do nothing but sit around and roll dice all day. They could use IPad 2's to then upload the results to the website.

I think this would stop all dice complaining.

Thanks.

A cap limit on the dice luck

Postby SiriusCowKing on Mon Sep 09, 2013 3:20 pm

The problem:
As heard many times before, luck on dice is sometimes impossible. It was proven that luck is just random, but the other day I won a game because the other player couldn't kill my last unit going 10vs1. I am happy that I won, but not this way. At some point you should just be able to roll over the enemy if you have enough units.

The solution:
Put a cap on the maximum and minimum units you should lose when attacking someone. In the help section line 25 there is the chances to win an attack. If you attack with 3 dices vs 2 dices you have 54% chances to win, and 66% chances for a 3 dices vs 1 dice. Based on that you should lose 85% of your enemy's stack when going 3v2 and 50% when going 3v1 (so 1 unit or 0). I suggest that when pressing the auto attack button, you can only lose from half to twice the units based on these statistics. So a 200 vs 100 would result in assured capture, losing from 43 to 170 units. In the case of attacking a 1 unit territory with at least 4 units (3vs1 dices), the outcome would result in assured capture with losses of 1 or 0 units.

How it can be implemented:
When a player press the auto attack button, the 2 stacks are saved as variables. The outcome is calculated as usual, but the maximum and minimum caps on units lost are also calculated, rounded up. If the random result is over the maximum cap, use the maximum instead. If the random result is under the minimum cap, use the minimum instead. If the defender is not eliminated in the fight and the losses were over the maximum units lost cap, use the maximum to calculate how many troops the defender should lose.

Sorry, but I'll live with the crazy. This is a game of chance after all. If you hard-code guaranteed results, you completely change the nature of the game.

luck would still be part of the game, but there would be a limit to the possible luck, so more strategy less luck.

Re: A cap limit on the dice luck

Postby cooldeals on Mon Sep 09, 2013 3:50 pm

This does not in fact eliminate luck from the game. Take the following scenario.

Player A rolls at the cap for best possible luck 3 turns in a row.
Player B during those same turns rolls the worst possible luck.
Neither have had rolls altered as they are exactly at the ceiling and floor of the acceptable range.
Player B rolls an impossible roll that might even the game after a horrible first 3 rounds.
Player B's roll is limited and he is still significantly behind despite the fact that allowing this roll would have evened the dice odds for the game.

Player A wins by being more consistently "reasonably" lucky v. lucky all in one roll.

I'd say the option you are looking for is a surrender button or mercy rule. When odds are insurmountable surrender becomes an option.
