luck and speed. no strategy whatsoever.

If you like buying lottery tickets, then sure, that's your right, but please go write about it in Freestyle and don't pollute the good name of Strategy with it.

Just my humble opinion.... :geek:


Hey, whoa there Duke! Sure there is some strategy involved. I've played doodle Assasins before and it is sure some strategy in it.

Luck is a-plenty but you also have to be careful when you play Doodle Assasin. Will you risk going through someone else's territory, when they have two territories left. Who is coming after you? How to hide from them. How do you reach your target b4 someone else does?

Yeah, you're probably right. Some element of strategy exists in every game.

Hey, crazymilkshake5, I happened to find this: viewtopic.php?f=58&t=38086

I think it's worth looking into, though I skimmed.

There is a strategy, but once you figure it out it becomes luck.

For instance, there is strategy in the game of tic-tac-toe, so a player using a strategy against a player who is moving randomly will win. But, if both players know the strategy the game is pointless.

So here we have 2 ways to measure the element of strategy.

1 way (the regular way) is to determine how certain patterns of play affect the results of your game. Now, there are only a few strategies in the game, but there are strategies. One (the one I used for assdoodling) is all-out attack.

The 2nd way to measure strategy is to figure out how much playing randomly hurts your position. Now, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that playing randomly in an assdoodle will hurt you a lot. This is because it is an assassin game, so it has all the strategy inherent to assassin games, amplified (1 wrong attack could cost you the game in an 8-player).

Now, the question is how much is strategy, and how much is luck.

IF ALL PLAYERS KNOW THE STRATEGY IT IS 100% LUCK.

Note that this statement also holds true for SoC training games.

I like the current title. My favourite was The Strategy of Sheer Luck. Poetic almost.

You should use map rank, I think is Leehar's point.
