Man, I can't believe it's only been 5 years. Feels like I've been doing this since I was a kid.

Congrats on making it, hope you're still around once I graduate and can't find a job! I'll need something to keep me busy all day.

Happy Birthday--wish I had been around from the start--but I have half the time in :)

Keep up the great work.

Well done, Andy, your poems are always so great.
I wish I hadn't been sick since, the 31st is the date,
Then this congrats wouldn't be late!
2011 greets me with flu,
But hopes I have two:
Become a mod and have another good year.
So to all of you - cheers!
I wish you the best with good will,
and hope 2011 didn't greet you with ill.

What a 24 Hours of Battle Royale Madness we had! Thanks to everyone who participated in the Battle Royale festivities, and a big thanks to all the members of TeamCC who took time out of their schedule to help create the games and make sure everything ran smoothly!

I must say that this was by far one of our most successful celebrations---there weren't any major hitches---and for that, I'm pleased!

Thanks once again to you all, the Community, who have helped make Conquer Club what it is today---a success.

Look for a wrap-up summary of the Battle Royale in the coming days or so!

Its been a long long time...
Welcome home some might say
Is it by game design?
Will you come out to play?

Remember me as the one
who came out of the gate
made my way to the top
beat the best here that play
Ah the battle royale..
aint no cheese with this strike
I took two in '09
in the very same night

You can scoff and make fun
You can talk, you can cry
Baa baa black sheep OG
Solid kick ass Ally

What up highlander

just in to visit. Its been maybe a year and a half since my last game.

Happy birthday CC

Re: 5 years strong and Still messed up Dice!

thenybuffs wrote:2,356,344 defensive dice thrown since I started playing and defense rolls 1's only 158,346 That's a 6.719987% chance that the defensive dice will roll a 1. Everything being equal there is a 16.6666% that any number 1-6 will be rolled. With nearly a 10% variance difference between what should be and what actually is, There I could only come up with a couple of conclusions.
1) The dice system for this game needs to be seriously looked at and adjusted A.S.A.P.
2) One of the game Dev's is mad at me and has somehow manually adjusted the chances how my opponents dice is determined thereby giving me the disadvantage in each and every game I play.
3) I have Seriously bad luck. And please understand if this is the case, the chances of my opponent rolling 1's only 6.72% of the time out of 2.356,344 dice rolls is astronomical! It would be almost the same odds as me winning the state Lotto Jackpot in each and every state in the United States all in the same week buy only 1 ticket in each.

My conclusion? I'm going with door number 1 or door number 2. I've only been playing for about 2 years... quit for several months in between because of this issue, came back and it's still the same issue. Please please please for the love of the DICE, please fix this issue! 5 years should be plenty of time to have fixed this issue.

Thanks!


Could you please post the rest of your results, it would be greatly appreciated and allow for actual calculations of probabilities. as it stands, anyone with access to those numbers has an incalculable advantage in any match they play. its time for that to be public knowledge. Either that or fix the dice Devs. and really, that should have been something posed in big bold letters right in the middle of the home page for all new users to see. BY THE WAY, THE DICE ARE LOADED!!! HERE ARE THE ODDS... but no, the devs instead want to keep their unfair advantage

With kudos ( or apologies ) to the Bard, Wm. Shakespeare ...

To premium, or not to premium, that is the question !
Whether tis nobler to suffer the spins of outrageous dice rolls,
or take up arms against programming geeks.

Alas, poor lackattack, I thought I knew him well ,
a CC'er of infinite jesting, and excellent ambition.

Where be your rolls, your gambles, your flashes of dice integrity
that were sure to encourage premium signups all the more ?
