I'm sorry but posts like jsimmons' are so funny for me. It is even funnier that I used to have posts like that. Everybody can see from page 45 to the end (15 PAGES!) of the thread viewtopic.php?f=36&t=2594&start=660
, how I was the most dominant voice against the dice. I am not kidding I was the #1 dice complainer. The thread is there to prove it. I guess this is always gonna be like this. One generation will eventually realize that dice generator is not broken while the new generation will start complaining about it. Since I used to be the #1 dice complainer, I know exactly what they are thinking. And all that are nothing but bs. As a former dice complainer here are few complaints I did which are followed by responses. It is simply today's Kemal responds to Kemal a year ago.
1. "Dammit I attacked with 12 inf and 2 tanks and I got only one hit and 13 misses!"
The expected hit is 3, you got 1. This only 2 less than the expected. People think they should get about 50% hit rate but they don't realize most units have attack value less than 3. So most of the time the hit rate must be less than 50%
2. "How did I lose that battle? I had 80% chance to win!"
Ok Mr. Greedy. You had 2 other battles which also had 80% chance to win and you won the other 2 and you lost this one. Winning all the 3 battles is 51.2% and you are surprised that 48.8% probability has just happened.
3. "5 dice all 5. Now I am convinced the dice is broken"
Probability for a number to repeat 5 times is 1/1296. 1296=6^4. Not 6^5 since you have to take in the consideration of repeats of other numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6. Don't you think you have thrown enough dice to get this kind of dice?
4. "Well I play ftf too but I don't see that much crazy dice like I see here. With GTO it happens like at least 10 times more"
That's because you play 10 times more games here! GOD!
5. "I think GTO has something against me these days. This is like 5th game in a row I was super unlucky."
You have played so far close to 100 games and you think it's unusual from that many games 5 games in a row to have all bad luck. 50% of the time you will be lucky, 50% of the time you opponent. That's like saying it is impossible to get 5 heads in a row if you have tossed coin 100 times.
But actually here was the actual truth. I was simply worse than the average with my gaming. I just didn't realize that at the time. Then I made a decision that I will try to beat the dice still believing the dice is broken. I was still complaining about the dice but I changed one attitude and that was I will focus on the game more. I started to take more time when I was doing a move. I was always asking myself ok this move looks good but is there something better I can do. With this attitude I increased my win rate from 40-50% to 70-80%. Then the dice started to look not so bad for me. IT IS BUNCH OF RANDOM NUMBERS. That's it. I don't think GTO should even invest 1 second or 1 cent to look into this anymore. The admins shouldn't even bother with posting here because everytime they do, they spend valuable time that they can use to do other improvements for the games.
Btw if there are more complains like I listed the 5 above and let me know so I can respond. I know how to respond to them all. Remember you are not as much as dice complainer as I used to be.
