@SS-GEN said in AA1914 - Playing with Statistical Losses:

Ok. Low luck with a twist right ?

So how does the -10/+10 roll work ? say

A

6 inf = 15

3 art = 6

Total = 21 points

Then div 6 into 21 = 3.3

3 hits plus a 3 left or half hit.

How does the rest of this work ?

Hello!

If using the 1914 values ( 2 for Inf, 3 for Artillery and supported Inf), it gives this :

3 Inf x 2 = 6
3 Supported Inf x 3 = 9
3 Art x 3 = 9

(9+9+6) = 24

24 / 6 = 4 hits.

Roll for +/- 10%. We typically call for a minimum variance of one, so you would end up with between 3 and 5 kills.

We round the number before rolling, so in your case, 21 hit points divided by 6 gives 3.5, so we count 4 kills before rolling for +/-.

This makes for low luck games but that +/- 1 or 10% can be the difference sometimes between changing your strategy or staying with it without killing you on one bad roll.

I hope this helps you out. Enjoy!
