I must say though - it was a somewhat sobering example of condescending commentary by *some* Senior Members - including a DOW contributor...

Sorry if you took it that way. The picture was not meant to be condescending. I just found it perfectly in line with the discussion, as we explained 1,000 times in this forum that NO, dice aren't rigged, AI doesn't cheat, and bad dice rolls are *NOT* "clearly a result of programming".

As Napoleon said, a good sketch is better than a long speech: the picture above was just a pun about the thousand threads opened about the same subject.

Again, I apologize if you took offense.

Diet...

I could swear there was a blue 4 x 4 pickup truck in the parking lot - look out for an Iwo Jima purist fueled sniper!


Thanks for the warning Trent.
Time to go undercover.

I can understand DOW staff being somewhat frustrated. They have repeatedly stated that the AI does not have access to any information that a human opponent does not and they have repeatedly explained that the "dice roller" has no link to either the game or the particular battle for which it is rolling. I believe they have also stated that the cards are dealt with no knowledge of the standing/status/game situation of the player receiving the card, although I cannot at the moment locate that specific statement.

Could they be lying? Of course they could.

If you believe them (as I do), you continue to play and occasionally mutter darkly about how the fates are conspiring against you while claiming credit for all 4 grenade rolls.

If someone doesn't believe them, I truly don't understand why someone would continue to play the game.

Indeed - As did I !

My comment was specific to the thread which you referenced, not the picture which accompanied it...

Has anyone seen this or am I just imagining things?
