Re: Dice Stats

Do dice stats include attacks on neutral armies or only those against player-controlled troops? If neutrals are included, is there a way to run stats against only neutral armies as you can against a specific opponent?

neutral is included, but there isn't a way to select neutral as an opponent. Hmm...

Just curious, why would you post about it in public if you've figured out a potential strategy that most people probably would NOT have figured out? You're either awfully kind or awfully dumb, one of the two. :mrgreen:

Haha, good point. I guess I don't really consider it a strategy, though, just a new way for some people to get an advantage over others that is not a reflection of skill.

Re: Dice Stats

Postby JustCallMeStupid on Tue Jun 07, 2011 1:38 am

I am extremely confused on how to read the dice stats under my name I see assault and defend. So the assault I assume are me clicking attack, and the defend I assume is the enemy defending? Nevermind the luck part.

I just dont understand whose dice stats are where. On the opponent side, 'are the defend stats the dice I rolled when defending their attacks' or 'the dice my opponents rolled when I attacked them' I would really appreciate some more explanation in the help section so I can understand if I had a 20% luck or my opponents did when defending.

*EDIT: I completely understand the luck part. I just dont completely understand how to read the rows. Under my name is the attack row for when I attack someone and the defend row for when Im offline and someone attacked me in another game? Is this the correct way to read it?

Luck is easy my opponents currently have 23% attack luck and 30% defend luck. On the bright side my defend luck is +60% haha, but my attack luck is negative, and luck doesnt really tell you anything of how often you are winning attacks.

Then if I look in the opponent section all opponents assault luck is -3% while the defend luck is 20%.

Luck is based on how high or low above the average roll (Being 3.5) is. (I think)

On the My Dice Stats page, there is a link to the Help page section: About the dice. Question 22 gives the details of luck calculations.

These statistics only go up to 25 rolls ? How does this help for determining long term statistics ?

Is this thier way of saying the dice rolls are not messed up? Just because I have roughly 3.51 across the board doesnt mean they its normal.

Actually, they can't get much more normal that that.

It looks normal but in games I have noticed a few things.

1. The first few rounds you will have lopsided rolls then once the game is technically over then the rolls will become the other way around but the one with the bad rolls in the beginning has no way to catch up even when he gets great rolls. Hard to win when you are down 30 men to 5 on deployment even though you are now killing 3x more men then you lose a round.

2. I have seen games where vs a player I would lose 90% to his 10% but then attacking neutrals I could not lose.

3. Lately, as in the last week I have also lost 3vs1's at a absurd rate. 2kills to 20losses, 4 kills to 16 losses and one even was like 11kills to 60 losses. This is both attacking and defending not just defending

Thats what I mean when I say just because they average out to 3.5 doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with them. Too many games lately have been lopsided for me in both ways win and lose. Yes it can happen but it shouldnt be happening as much as it does. Losing 10men to 1 can happen but it should basically be rare. Anyone know the math to see how many times out of a 1000 that you can explect to lose 10 men to 1.

What I would like to see with the dice rolls is stats per game that can be broken down vs each player and neutrals. Even the first 25 battles vs each then the next 25 etc.

Just played first game since this post. Game 9225680.
#1 and #3 strikes again. Going to see how many more games till the next time BRB.
