More often than not, lone units end up successfully hitting on defense (hence the need to attack with more authority other than a "light" counter), and more often than not, a "1" is rolled instead of a "2."
So y'all think that single units defending by themselves roll more 1s than they should? Has this been tracked at all or is this just observation? Any volunteers to set up as many single defender battles to see if this observation hold any water? For a starter, let's go with 100 rolls.
Rock's claim is untrue I believe. I just got playing an expert this morning, who just couldn't stop whinin' about how I would hit the deadzones with 2 inf 1 ftr vs. his 1 inf & kill his inf & his inf hardly ever get a hit & I never didn't take the territory.
Also, it is a common strategy of mine, as Germany, when I am short on infantry to hit say, Karelia which has 1/2 inf, with the same amount + a lotta fighters & I do well enough to have not discontinued the strategy.
I was taking Belo, more often than not, going 1v1 on inf & 1 fighter.
Dice rollz are random
and that meets you will run into the extremes
& sometimes you will be on the receiving end & sometimes you will so proud of your playing ability...........
Don't believe me? I talked to 2 craps dealers who told me the story about the lady who held the dice for 3 1/2 hrs at a craps table b4 crappin' out years back. Now there's your extreme!!
Next time you go to a casino, check out the craps tables at peak hours. There will be tables where all the players are just a hootin' & hollerin' cause they are rollin' good & then you got your quiet tables, & even your tables that break down because the dice are so cold.
If you run a battle scenario thru the battle calculator and it says you have 1/4% of a chance of not having a ground unit left with the dust settles, that means, that there is a chance you will not win & it will occur to someone, sometime, soon!
What does it take for one to accept the fact that this game [although requires skill to have a high win%] is a game of chance and no matter who you are, you can't win 90% of your games unless you seek out just the right game conditions.
When I see players with a 88% win rate, I know what's up. They aren't playing 88 out of a 100 players who are close to their skill level & you can take that to the bank!
