š²š¢ PRNG dice support group ā and ranting

Got a bad set of rolls? Again? And again? Really, again?!
This is the thread to express your frustration. Please donāt rant about dice elsewhere. Constructive feedback is helpful in other threads so please open threads with feature ideas, solutions, merthods, etc. But here, here rant away.

I dunno, a game where Iām yelling at truly bad dice rolls 23 times daily just isnāt fun anymore. And itās starting to worry the cats.
Iām playing one game in particular. I have 7 infrantry, he has 1 infatrny, 1 artillery and 2 bombardments and Iām worried that Iām going to lose that battle. Itās been that way the whole game. Iām in the bottom 10% of results about 50% of the time.

I just got 2 unreasonable good rolls in a row. Also some bad ones mixed in. I feel like Iām shouting into the void.

@djensen Youāre not. A russian sub first struck me twice in a row, you have to allocate your battles and buys radically differently than in the oob game because there are so many anomalous results and rules

@taamvan Yeah, thatās what Iām realizing; I donāt like it.

@djensen 4 infantry just rolled 4 1s didnt have to wait to see what the armor and fighter unit rolled to ragequit after the first battle (chance; 0.0007716)

That happens. My concern is when it happens over and over and over again.

Hereās my latest rant, itās not super extreme but here it isā¦
So we have
Attackers: 1 sub, 2 cruisers, 2 fighters
Defenders: 1 aircraft carrier with 2 fighters, 1 battleshipItās a suicide run right? Just to hit and run, right?
Letās look at the odds:
Now, letās look at the result: (still no dice log)

I mean WTF? If my calculations are correct, this was a 1.7% chance of happening. The problem is that is happens ALL OF THE TIME.
These events are supposed to be the story of legend. āKids, one time I rolled 9 dice and got zero hits and my opponent roll 2 and got 2 hits.ā Not a daily happenstance.

@djensen
at least the pictures look cool, but yea, seems a bit much dice wise.

This after SZ 37 was taken with minimal casualties. Iām so sick of this.

1st forray into ranked went something like:
R1: 7 INF 2 ART 1 TANK Vs. 3 INF 1 ART 1 TANK
Defender wins with 1 ART and 1 TANK remaining.
Thanks game. Love you too.

FFS!! Honestly, Iām done. Iāll play through my remaining two games that thatās it. Itās not fun and I never roll so bad so frequently IRL.
And the rest of the battle went about the same. The 2nd set of rolls were average on both sides. The third roll was a blow out with nearly all of the defending infantry hitting.

Second ranked game has seen me lose a trivial battle of 2 INF/1 ART Vs. 1 INF. Yikes.

I so #$%^&(&^%! sick of this ā¦

When youāre constantly swearing at a game because of dice rolls, itās not a good thing. Itās not fun.

I may have answered my survey wrong ā¦ Maybe I canāt recommend this game.

I lost 7 INF Vs. 2 INF the other day. That was a fun one.

I donāt complain about dice!. Iām reporting that the dice in Online AA are not random and have deliberate tendencies regardless of who or what says otherwise. Their is something weird about the results with too many 56 getting rolled . Ive had like 15 units of air and land all roll 56 and no hits. Then the defender misses with 56 results. Then in the next round, i hit him to oblivion. Then of course he hits with every unit ( even though heās rolling 12, and i got many 34 hitters). My overwhelming force should have wiped him off in 1st round, but no. The IPC loses on both sides are usually the same even though i got such a larger force. This is one of a few tendencies i notice.

@ImperiousLeader I moved your post because you hijacked a thread about something else. This is where it belongs.

Standard result:
Iām Germany control Caucasus with 4 tanks , 3 men
Russia who has jack attacks with 6 men and 1 artillery. Leaving Moscow with 2 units BTW
Result Iām dead and he loses only 4 infantry.
The dice suck in this game and its always like this. I have to deliberately make overwhelming attacks just to get by

@djensen exactlyā¦ the times it happens are the stories you tell over and over. I hope this isnāt like the Germans rolling into Eygpt again (getting destroyed that one time).

I have been thinking. I have been in the software industry for many years, and random is an issue in the computer programming world. It seems trivial, but it isnāt. Computers should be able to do this with ease, but it doesnāt resemble real life, and that is the issue. (https://engineering.mit.edu/engage/askanengineer/canacomputergenerateatrulyrandomnumber/)
I think I have best solution  simulate the rolling of actual 3D dice in a simulated environment where they are ātossedā as a person would roll a die or dice. Then determine which side is up. This would seem like the best solution and one we may all agree on.
