Fixed dice.

Postby Davez on Wed Sep 07, 2011 7:21 pm

I've been told by a number of people that the dice are fixed. Just wondering how the server decides which players get good dice and which ones get bad dice. Presumably every time one players gets bad dice someone else is getting good dice. I've just started playing so is there any way to know whether I've been assigned to have lucky or unlucky dice?

You have completed 4 games and dead beated in all 4. I would be willing to be some points that you don't deadbeat out of the doubles game you are in. I wonder if that game will be dropped. Do we have a new puppet master here?

If you name your troops before you attack with them, then you get better results. For instance I name all my troops Chuck Norris, therefore I roll all 7s and never lose

Why would people be assigned lucky or unlucky dice? Why would the bad dice for one person be mistically compensated for by good dice of someone else at any given time?

The dice simulator is trying to approximate a random probability distribution. That is why it is called dice simulator rather than God simulator.

My dice are always good...until they aren't.

Your 0-7 record can't be entirely from the dice...and people win games early on in their CC career all the time so it ain't some bias the site has against begginers. I've found missing turns crushes your chances to win...but maybe that's just me.

Since I have joined THOTA, all we get are bad dice. But, its our strategy that lets us win all the time. So I recommend using a good strategy with your bad dice. ;-p

You've made 2500+ points on World 2.1, that's 1000 points more than I've made on Imperium Romanum and I'm one of the best on that map.

:-$ There is no strategy to W2.1...its just a big map with much luck involved.

On a serious note toss me an invite on Imperium if you want. I enjoy a challenge.

Normally the Central Committee holds a meeting every Monday to determine who will get the good dice that week, and since the squeeky wheel gets the grease, usually the people who have complained the loudest on the weekend will be given lucky dice for the following week.

If you complain on a Wednesday, you're really wasting your time, because by next Monday you will have been forgotten. It's best to complain on Sunday afternoon, and it helps if you post your complaint with CAPS LOCK turned on, to attract the most attention.
