Those are some ugly numbers Duk

My worst ever, and I may have to think is a record on this site not really researching this, I lost a 115v12 roll.

According to this site... (http://riskodds.com/index.php)

Long-Term Battle Simulation
Attacker Won: 100% of the time (339210 of 339210 trials)
Average Conquering Army Size: 104
Defender Won: 0% of the time (0 of 339210 trials)

This is a massive problem with the site. Its these edge cases that pop up so often. All you hear back is "well in the scheme of 'random' these things can happen"

Yes they can, but you dont get 85% of players complaining about these 1 in a million flukes. You get one and then everyone else dismisses them as crazy. Take a poll and I bet 85% of poeple here reckon there is something wrong with the dice.

Especially autoroll. I personally think autoroll is skewed with some bizarre pattern that in some favours one side when a chunk is picked out and divided up as 3,2,3,2,3,2,3,2 e=tc

I'm having a meltdown over my recent run of games.

Dice, general luck, timing, etc.

All my games the past week turned to garbage and in those games I didn't do anything warranting a slaughter against me.

I just lost a 12v3 for a 50 cash kill in an escalating game. In an earlier escalating game I had 17v8 and rolled 1-16. Still doesn't top my 18v2 or 17v3 losses but still.

The dice have messed up my ability to play.

For example, I need to break a bonus and let's say there's a 3 stack on the border. I assume that a 4/5/6 vs. 3 will not work. Subconsciously, I believe I need an 8 or a 9 stack. I've lost so many 4/5/6 vs.3.

I didn't think this way when I started. And I played alot better my first 3 years on CC.

switched over to chrome this morning.

better dice.

now its reasonable.

it must be a firefox issue with the dice.

I always sensed that it was a BOB/firefox issue.

When I first started I used IE and I never complained about the dice.
Then, I learned about BOB and my dice/luck went down the tubes.

I should have trusted my feelings, the force.

Well, I tried to set up a proper sub forum back in the day to discuss maths and tactics, but it was rejected as a suggestion. Make of that what you will. Personally I think dice bias is just nonsense, but I thought a sub-forum about that would both prove that and be kind of interesting about how people played on different maps.
