if i chose to go against a lower rated opponent , mostly i succeed and get my spoil,
and this is really killing my logical thinking, have u experienced something like that?
so strategically we should attack only somebody who is lower rated then ourselves to get that important spoil card ?
any input here?

anything to contribute?
you can ask questions 2, i might not have the experience to answer it, but somebody will, come on guys, show some interest,
or is the dice stronger than strategy?
than were back to 70 percent dice and 30 percent strategy- that cant be - or ?

In "normal" games - if your opponent gets good dice then he can run you off the map, and if you get bad dice then it can really put you in a weak position (which will then get you run off the map).
However, in trench games, if your opponent gets good dice, then he still only takes out one (or at most a few) of your territories and you have a chance to respond. If you get bad dice attacking, then yes it weakens you, but only on that ONE spot that you got bad dice at. It's much less swingy, so even if you get bad dice (or your opponent gets good dice) for a few turns, the dice will eventually even out DURING THAT GAME, and whoever wins will generally be the one who had better strategy/diplomacy.
The only way dice will really cost you in trench is if you somehow get really bad luck, and either just KEEP failing to win attacks that statistically you should win, or if your opponent KEEPS getting really good dice and is constantly winning battles he shouldn't win as often. And by this I mean, it would need to happen for several turns in a row in order to make a significant difference in the outcome. But that is pretty unlikely to happen for long periods of time over the course of a whole trench game.
