  • I feel like I’ve been doing quite a bit better than average on rolls so far; let’s see if that holds up.

    What is your opinion on LowLuck dice? I feel like based on the videos of yours that I have watched so far, you tend to favor relatively conservative play in order to mitigate extreme swings of the dice, which LowLuck is meant to help with. If you’d like. we can play a followup game that way too.



  • @Avin

    Yes, this appears catastrophic thanks to the dice. I’ll send you the round stats when I get home as I don’t have my spreadsheet in front of me. Though it is frustrating as a player, this is good as a statistical data point. Toward that end I won’t concede any game prior to the completion of round 3 so if it’s all the same to you, I will do my absolute best until then.

    I have not heard of low luck. What is that?



  • I’m, happy to play this out further and appreciate your willingness to stick it out, but definitely let’s rematch after this as I’d much rather face you on a more level playing field.

    LowLuck is where instead of rolling one die per unit in each round of battle, you instead add up the strength of all your units for each round of battle, divide by 6, and get that many “guaranteed” hits, and then roll one die for the remainder. So for instance on that first battle with Russia against Manchuria, 5 inf 1 arm would be a single guaranteed hit, then I would roll one die and get a second hit at a 2 or less. On defense, you would get one guaranteed hit and roll a die at 4 or less for a potential second hit.

    The net effect for large battles especially is that it chops off the ends of the bell curve, so that there’s still room for a variety of results but you will never see the extremely lucky outcomes one way or another.

    It however does nothing for small unit count individual battles, like the lone fighter against LAB transport - that plays out exactly the same way. So you still have to be careful with potentially swingy battles like that.



  • Oh and I forgot to mention that TripleA supports LowLuck with a single option when you set up the game. It also has additional options to explicitly set LowLuck for antiaircraft guns (which works similarly: instead of rolling one die per aircraft, you add up the number of aircraft, divide by six if greater than or equal to six, and roll one die total for the remainder), LowLuck for Bombing and Territory damage (which I believe gives you either 3 or 4 ipcs of damage per bomber every time, depending on a die roll) and LowLuck for Technology (I’m not sure how this works, but my guess is divide the number of dice you purchase by 6 again for that many advancements).

  • when it rains, it pours



  • Wow, that’s crushing! Would you like to take a mulligan on at least that Manchuria battle, or perhaps at least take a fighter back or something? You’ve just been so crushed thus far by dice more so than anything I’ve done that even if things swing back the other way, the damage has already been done since the first turn is so important.

    If you do want to continue to play things out just for the sake of completionism of your stats and records I’d respect that but I’ll also be anxious to quickly move on to a second game.

    I’ll start the US turn now based on your save as is but feel free to decide if you’d like to amend anything here.



  • At this point, I feel sorry asking YOU to play out the next two rounds, haha. Please finish your USA turn to have one round complete for stats purposes and then I will concede this game. I’ll still use it as a data point, hopefully one that remains at the end of the bell curve.

    Also, I am now ready to concede that the Axis probably needs Russia Restricted for balance purposes (i feel this is more historical anyway). Would you be willing to reboot with RR? It will be annotated in my stats.

  • @AcesWild5049 Sure no problem. Some people really dislike the idea because they feel like Axis and Allies is made for random lucky swings and it removes part of the game without it. I disagree, particularly because of the interesting effect that when you do use LowLuck, you can engage in what would otherwise be riskier battles, but the potential swings within those are still present and do make more of a difference because of the ability to calculate things more certainly.

    I’ve also heard the dismissal “If I wanted to decrease luck I would play chess!” That’s a silly argument because I happen to very much enjoy chess too!

    But I’m happy to play either, regardless.



  • If the Eastern med sub has the option to retreat again, please do so as before. But I’m sure you won’t give me the opportunity this time!
