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.
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.
I was merely asking what you guys thought of this calculator and if I should continue to use it as a tool.
