No worries. And yes, I do believe that the advantage once held by the attacker is not as pronounced as it once had been. The old rule of thumb (add up all the armies of the terrs you plan to hit and add the number of terrs divided by 3) to calculate what size stack is required no longer seems to work very often. I see and experience far more failures than ever I used to.

You know the feeling, you play every move perfect, the plan comes together, you're ready to strike and sweep the map.... kaboom!

27 vs 14 ends 3 vs 6, 53 vs 10 leaves you with 11, etc., etc.

And don't give me the bullshit that "you don't remember the good dice, you only remember the bad ones". FFS! If you play a decent game you never get the good ones. If you have 14 to take 20, you simply don't even try, even though that's when you might have gotten the good ones.

Unfucking random the dice and program it so that if you have double the amount of your opponent you win the fucking battle or something like that.

Bastards!

Lx

And yet there's no support for a "no dice" function. With so many dice haters on this site they should be flocking to a pure strategy, no luck function. Yet most seems to want the dice, they just don't want it to roll bad. Sorry but you can't have that, if you have a dice, you're going to draw the short straw sometimes.

I honestly think it's a case of remembering the good and bad rolls. Of course everyone has genuinely lost a game because of the dice, but that works both ways. I remember losing 18v2 once, horrific. I've ranted about the dice many times, but I remember a couple of outstanding rolls as well. I have won 5v12, although granted it was too late, and just now won 15v15 with 13/14 left.

Yes they have changed for the worse. The whole game is not that much fun anymore. I am constantly let down by the dice. Cmon, how many time can the defender roll double sixes. I watch it happen all the time just like the last game I played. so disappointing

Not only did the attacker advantage disappear a few years back but my attacking kill ratio is only so high because when I am getting my ass kicked and I just fight neutral to speed it up then I get all the 6's. the whole experience of CC has soured. I have personally bought more than a dozen premium memberships for friends let alone myself and recommended countless people to this site. Cant anymore though.

I'm rather surprised to see your complaint about dice after you have destroyed any chance of us rolling anything great defense or offense. Your dice you have had in 2013 from at least what I have seen have been rather well. But on the flip side ( or my side ), Dice seem to have somehow favored to the side of the defender. I have as you were implying 5v1 and can't card on a regular basis. And speed games I think it is even worse for some reason. Just a thought

I played a version (Risk II for PC) where you're dice changed colour based on how many troops were in your army

for example

white dice for troops 1-5 (white dice prone to rolling more 1s)
yellow
orange
red
all the way up to black dice if your region had 30 or more troops (these had a much greater probability of rolling 6s)

Maybe CC could implement games where the dice worked like this, I know i'd like it?

the issue is not remembering the bad or even the good, but the issue is the insane dice that occur on a daily basis

Funny how I see many more high rankers complaining about a random object than I see cooks.

By the way, my dice suck too, yet I still manage to win some games.

I propose a new dice system.. attacking dice range from 4-6 and defending dice 1-3 always, forever. :lol:

Low ranks are too stupid to understand.

and stupid players are rewarded like the dumb ass who tried a 4v3, 3v2, 2v1 and was rewarded by perfect dice against me today. Super poor strategy rewarded by CC. I took two months off to see if I still wanted to play this game and now over a month or so have figured out I do not.

Ive noticed that pattern about, you getting a very probable win with good dice, than dice starts to balance with crappy dice for you in the last rounds , so you get a feeling in stats that dice is equal.
Ive seen it both ways and that is not nice.
But honestly, last couple of months i tried and managed to stop being very angry about bad dice. It is just not worth to be mad. I believe now i play 100% for fun and more relaxed.
Still i allways think that i loose because of bad dice and when i win is because of my superb skills :D
