Hutber, you sure you didnt get that from one of my games?

The dice blow.

Great chunks, slimy long slippery chunks, the kinda chunks that bring on more chunks just by lookin at em.

The kinda chunks ya really wanna save for special occasions, like at an office board meeting or a first date.

The legendary kind, the ones ya never forget, truly memorable with their own unique odor ya wish ya could bottle for posterity.

The spontaneous kinda chunks, from a minor tummy rumbling ya had all day and then the unexpected projectile explosion happens that splashes and clings onto all receiving parties and spreads like oil with water.

The kinda chunks that seem to crawl, the kinda chunks ya know live cause death dont smell that way, the kinda chunks might be better described as ooze, an ooze with its own pulsating aura like a seeping pustule creeping towards you in dreams on lightless nights.

The dice blow

This has probably been suggested before but maybe it would be a good idea to have some maps that did not involve using dice.

For example a map such as WWI Gallipoli could be adapted so that each player had one battleship containing X no of missiles i.e. 3 and say 10 land based regions. Obviously it would have to be foggy, no spoils and perhaps freestyle would work best to give all players the same chance of the first turn advantage. On each turn the player fire 3 misisles trying to eliminate his opponent(s). Or he could save his missiles for the next turn, when another 3 would be added. At the end of his turn he would receive one additional random region.

There are several traditional games, this one is based on battleships, that could be adapted i.e. chess, card games etc. I haven't really thought about the detail too much but I'm sure some of our technical wizards would be able to create a map that was based on strategy rather than lucky dice.

I finally reached a breaking point with the dice. If you look at my stats, they appear normal. What doesn't show is that I have lost every important roll. I win the ones that won't make a difference. Every set of spoils comes up two pair. I was more of a liability than an asset in the last clan war.

I have cancelled out of all tournaments that have not started. I have cancelled all pending games except tournaments that are ongoing and I am asking to be released from those. I am cutting way back. I am that disgusted with the dice and the way they are running. I have been through bad streaks before in the 11.5k+ games I have played but nothing like this. I am just deploying and passing in most of the games I still have left. There is no point in trying.

Withdrawing from all CC games. Totally disgusted.

Yeah I see that a lot. Not just my dice but others too. You get a long rough stretch then a good one which balances out the stats... or the stats are a crock- I havent qorked out which of these it is. My 3v1 is always red but apparently long term it evens out. I'm not so sure about that.

I think it happens to everyone though as the specific thing you describe I see happen to my opponents as well

I would love to see the actual dice file. Given that for auto roll and in particular large auto rolls, the dice might be grabbed in large chunks, but they are allocated to players in sets of 5. So the same pattern will play out again and again

Weirdly, one of my rejected suggestions was for a forum, or a sub-forum for people to look at stats and strategies. It was rejected for being both too unpopular for people to post in, and also because it would be too popular for people to post in. Made little sense to me, as their are plenty of practically dead forums, and although there are some that are popular, but have become unmanageable (there are no Suggestion moderators at the moment, I am told, for example), most of the popular forums run ok.

It's a shame, as there are people who want to talk strategy, and the stats are an important part of the game.

I finally started playing my first two games on another site. I don't want to leave but the dice here make it not fun.

Do you mean that the dice distributions are really good but the battles are crap?

I have played many many many games here at CC and was around during the best years of this site. We had new maps coming out each month and the member involvement in tournament sand clan play was huge. I would recommend CC to all my friends. BUT things are NOT the same and there is one direct reason and from that reason many other problems have arisen.

The dice program that runs this site has ruined this site. Don't give me the stats and tell me it is all even because while that may be the case, what is overlooked is the probably of certain events happening and these crazy events are happening way to often. I have seen a 41 lose to a 2, which is a one in a 10 billion occurrence and I have seen a 15 lose to 1, or my 4 takes down an army of 28. I am throwing these numbers out at random, but it is just that bad and it is happening on a daily basis. I have played dice game for 40 years and these things never happen though statistically they could once in a blue moon.

I use to love has this site and today it has become a waste of my time. It angers me to play a solid game only to be robbed, and I mean robbed by dice events that should only occur under a normal bell curve once in a million times and yet it is happening daily. It is this reason alone that people are fleeing and will not come back to CC. If not fixed and remedied soon, my path will be likewise the same. I am not one who cares about points and rank and all that stuff, but I want to play solid games against others at a high level of skill. The dice are not allowing this to happen on a consistent basis. I so use to love playing games here, met great people, had great games, and this absolutely blows now. Whoever is in command is asleep at the wheel and taking the site down.

If you read this and agree please write me, I would like to petition for change.

That is so well expressed and so absolutely the way I feel. And that is the very reason I now have 3 games going on an alternate site.

I'm still in favour of a stats based sub forum, so I would second that. I don't think that it would necessarily back your agenda, but at least it would generate a degree of analysis.
