DISCLAIMER: This is not just another NOOB thread of a user complaining about dice. I actually want to hear your thoughts.

So i've browsed around this forum trying to increase my rank/chances of winning, and noticed many people suggest using the Gambit battle odds calculator found here: http://gamesbyemail.com/Games/Gambit/BattleOdds

Now, for the most part I have found this helpful. However, in my latest 1v1 game, I've found it either completely destructive, or I am just SOL!

For instance, according to the calculator, I had a battle take place like so:

5 v 1 (Less 1 from attacking territory) with a .9 % Chance of me losing

4 v 1 with a 2.85% chance of losing

3 v 1 with a 8.36% chance of me losing

2 v 1 with a 24.58% chance of me losing

Now, I understand the 2 v 1 being a fairly tough call (on the board its actually 3 v 1).

Something just doesn't seem right to me. But, weirder things have happened.

EX 2:

Me attacking because I knew I had lost (1 territory left)

5 v 11 8% chance of winning

5 v 9 16% chance

5 v 7 29% chance

5 v 4 63% chance

3 v 4 36% chance

ends at 1 v 2.

I was just wondering the thoughts of you guys, especially you higher ranked players.
