Re:Pacific Theater Tournament/Overlord Scenario Fri, 21 June 2013 00:14
Haha! Fun to see that you are still thinking about that Razz

According to me, your choice was good. But I am not sure that I will prove it in the same way as you.

First you assume that it is your final turn, you consider that there is no possibility for the tank to hit you afterwards. Then you consider that all throws of dice is independent of the previous and the next one.

Therefore, you have three dices against a tank. With one dice, you have 1/3 odds to hit the tank (one grenade, one tank). Since you are considering that all dices has the same distribution (no biased dice), the probility with three dices is the same: 1/3 (you have six possibilities to hit over 18).
Same reasonning for the man, you have two dices but the probability to hit it is half. Therefore, the probility with two dices is also 1/2 (you have six possibilities to hit over 12).

The odds of 75% of hitting a man surprized me since I haven't had those stats after a match. But I may be wrong about everything Razz

For the extra question, it doesn't matter. Whatever you do, you would have lost if I had a centre card. To know the probability that I hadn't a central card, you should have counted the cards and I have to admit that I didn't take the time to do that. But knowing this probability does not bring much about what to do with your infantry and personnaly, I wouldn't go into the jungle!

Good choice, Jeroen!

Just to add a bit of statistic info to Jeroen's calculations, the probability of hitting something (at least once) is found by subtracting the probability of NOT hitting it at all to 1.
So, in this case:
the odds of hitting the man (2 rolls) are 1-(3/6*3/6) = 27/36 = 0,75
the odds of hitting the tank (3 rolls) are 1-(4/6*4/6*4/6) = 152/216 = 0,7037

Another classic situation: your tank (3 rolls) can shoot upon a 2-fig infantry or a 1-fig armor. Which one provides the best odds?

odds of hitting 2-fig inf: 1-(3/6*3/6*3/6)*3 = 0,329 (where the last *3 represents the 3 combinations of dice results: hit-miss-miss;miss-hit-miss;miss-miss-hit)
odds of hitting 1-fig armor: 1-(4/6*4/6*4/6) = 0,296

So again, going for the infantry provides the best odds!

WRONG! SEE POSTS BELOW!

(I think I have this right; if not, please feel free to further educate me!)

Normally I would agree with your analysis mr. Parker but in this case I would not move into the jungle.

Jeronimon nailed it.

Axis would take the bridge and win immediately if he has any Center card, Armor Assault, Artillery Bombard, BEL, or DHQ. And -- depending on orders -- TFH.

If the Russian infantry doesn't take ground, he's vulnerable to Close Assault (4d), Move Out (2d), or Infantry Assault (4d). Up to 5 cards, if they're still in the deck.

If the infantry does take ground, he's vulnerable to Close Assault (3d), Move Out (up to 8d), Infantry Assault (up to 9d), or Firefight (up to 6d). Up to 6 cards, and significantly more potential dice.

Mama was right. Stay out of the jungle.

Looks like you may have started typing one example, changed to another, and posted before finishing the change.

3d against a 2-fig infantry is a 50% shot. (If the first die is a hit, it's 75% to get a second hit. If the first die is a miss, it's a 25% chance to hit with both of the others.)

3d against a 1-fig tank is a 70% shot, as you correctly calculated earlier in your post.

Now I am no statistician, however the odds on hitting an infantry figure on any "normal" roll is 50% or 3/6. Each die roll is (should be) independent of what went before and what goes after. So rolling 2 dice at a 1 figure infantry the odds on a hit is 1/2 + 1/2 = 1 i.e. a single hit is the predicted result.

Similarly the odds on a single roll hitting a tank is 1/3 so with 3 dice the odds on a hit are 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = 1, again a single hit is the probable outcome.

So as I understood it both attacks had the same probability of success, either attack should score the required single hit.

But as I said I'm not a statistician.

Imagine that the dice are red and blue. The red die has a 50% chance of hitting the infantry. If the red die, hits, then it doesn't matter whether or not the blue die scores a second hit. But 50% of the time, the red die will miss. In 50% of those cases, the blue die will hit. so the probability of killing the 1-fig is 50% + 25%, or 75%.

Quote:

Now imagine we have red, blue, and green dice. In 2/3 of cases, the tank will survive the red die. In 2/3 of those cases it will survive the blue one, too. And in 2/3 of those cases, it will survive the green die, in addition to the other two. So 2/3 * 2/3 * 2/3 of the time (or 8/27 of the time), it survives. In the remaining 19/27, or 70% of cases, the tank is killed.

But clearly very wise. Smile

Re:Pacific Theater Tournament/Overlord Scenario Fri, 21 June 2013 03:58
Thank you for your note, Sam! I believe the formulas are correct but I messed up the math Embarassed
odds of hitting 2-fig inf: 1-(3/6*3/6*3/6)*4 = 0,5 (where the last *4 represents the 4 combinations of dice results: hit-miss-miss;miss-hit-miss;miss-miss-hit;miss-miss-miss)
odds of hitting 1-fig armor: 1-(4/6*4/6*4/6) = 0,704

So I stand corrected: going for the single tank is the way to go, if no other factors are involved!

Mark, probabilities don't add up like that: it is impossible to have a probability higher than 1 (or 100%).

Edit: but then, I was neglecting the possibility of 3 misses, regarding the 2-fig inf! Corrected again! You seem to be quite right, Sam!

I didn't say probabilities add past 100%.

I said rolling 3 dice on 1 tank or 2 dice on 1 soldier is likely to get one hit.

Sometimes, the simplest method is brute force. Using 0 to represent misses and 1 to represent hits, here are the 8 possible outcomes of the 3d roll against infantry.

000
001, 010, 100
011, 101, 110
111

Four of the eight combinations contain 2 or more hits.

A similar method can be used for attacking armor or artillery, but you have to factor in the 1/3 probability of a hit with each die.

Re:Pacific Theater Tournament/Overlord Scenario Fri, 21 June 2013 06:26
In this case he was talking 2d on 1 infantry figure

11 01 10 00 so 3/4 combinations kill the unit.

On the armor hehad 3 dice with 1/3 chance of hitting.

One could represent each die roll outcome as one of 3 outcomes 0 0 1


Dice A 0 0 1 x Dice B 0 0 1 x Dice C 0 0 1

ABC ABC ABC ABC ABC ABC
000 000 010 100 100 110
000 000 010 100 100 110
001 001 011 101 101 110

In each block A & B are constant and C varies vertically
The repeated blocks are caused by each die roll having two 0s.


if this is correct then 4/18 combinations have no hits so 14/18 hit at least once 77.7% just better than the infantry hit rate of 75%

Re:Pacific Theater Tournament/Overlord Scenario Fri, 21 June 2013 12:36
I think you've missed some combinations for the 3d roll against a 1-figure tank. Let's represent the two faces that hit as 1, the two infantry faces as 2 and the star and flag as 3, so that each die has three outcomes of equal probability. There should be 3^3, or 27, permutations on the list:

111 112 113
121 122 123
131 132 133 (all 9 of these are hits)

211 212 213 (5 of these are hits)
221 222 223
231 232 233

311 312 313 (5 of these are hits)
321 322 323
331 332 333

19 of 27 are hits. That's 70.37%.

Re:Pacific Theater Tournament/Overlord Scenario Fri, 21 June 2013 16:11
I am with Clorofila on the approach of this problem:

For the three dice on the single tank there are 6*6*6 possibilities of throws, makes 216 possibilities.
To miss I have throw one of four sides that miss on the first die one of the four sides that miss o the second die and on of four misses on the last die.

That's 4*4*4 makes 64 possibilities to miss, ergo 152 possibilities to hit.

152/216= 0.70370 q.e.d.

For the two dice on the inf it's simpler 6*6 and 3*3 gives 27/36= 0.75



But more importantly: if you keep thinking about stuff, you will continue to see and encounter new ideas and thoughts and in doing that will continue to learn and grow.

Ok that sounds a bit too pretentious but you get my meaning. Wink

Wow!! You guys are a bunch of math geniuses!!!

Me...I just have a simple approach, the 100% approach...you hit or you miss!!! Laughing That way I am not disappointed!! I know that either one is a possibility and therefore....or maybe you could even go with the 50/50 approach...hit or miss...still get one or the other...that is the best you can do!!!

But....guess I will have to think on it next time such a situation is presented to me....or such pick a target, roll and hope for the best!!! Very Happy

Will you please return it. Schrodinger was walking around my block all night long calling out for that cat.

By the way, I have heard of that before but looked into it a bit more. High thinking indeed.

Without that one and Helcat v Artimon the score stands 6-2 for the Japanese.

Jeroen,

Wasn't posted as of yet, but it now stands at 7-2, it was a Frostberg victory against TC, 8-4, from what I found, sorry if I stole Frostbergs thunder before he could post, but sure he or TC will post details!

van Voort,

The percentage for Allied victory is now down to 61. You may want to reconsider using one of your reserve units, though you don't need it to win. This scenario is definitely winnable for the Japanese. I've had numerous comebacks from 4 or 5 medal deficits early in the game. Patience in gathering the right cards (of course you have to get them) and then a concerted onslaught can bring victory. I'm sure you already know what I'm talking about.

Re:Pacific Theater Tournament/Overlord Scenario Thu, 04 July 2013 20:34
Here's some more helpful advice:

Read This and the War Is Won

What sort of place is the southern field of operations?

(1) It is the treasury of the Orient which has been invaded by the white men of England, America, France, and Holland.

(2) One hundred million Orientals are being oppressed by three hundred thousand white men.

It amounts to this;these whites possess scores of Oriental slaves from the moment they are born. Is this the intention of God?

(3) It is a source of world supply of oil, rubber, tin, etc.

Rubber and tin are essential for military supplies, and for these valuable resources the southern countries are the richest in the East. The malevolence of England and America, who have prevented Japan's purchasing these materials by just means, is one of the reasons which necessitates the present military operations.

It is quite clear that the Netherlands East Indies and French Indo-China cannot oppose Japan alone, but with the support and threats of England and America they are showing hostility to Japan. The lack of oil and iron is Japan's weak point, but lack of rubber, tin, and tungsten is the weakest point of America. America's chief sources of supply of these are the South Seas and Southern China. If these could be stopped, it not only would enable Japan to obtain the much-wanted oil and tin but it would stick a knife into America's sorest spot. The essence of America's opposition to Japan's southward advance lies here.

(4) It is a land of perpetual summer.

Bananas and pineapples are plentiful all the year round; at the same time troublesome malaria-mosquitoes are everywhere. In the Java and Singapore areas motor roads have been developed everywhere, but there are many uncivilized places, jungles, and swamps where neither man nor animals pass.

Why must we fight and how must we fight?

(1) By the Imperial will for the peace of the Orient.

The Meiji Restoration saved Japan from invasion by foreign powers. The Showa Restoration, by complying with the Imperial will for the peace of the Orient, must rescue Asiatics from disputes amongst themselves and the invasion of the white race and return Asia to the Asiatics. Peace in Asia will ensue, and this will be followed by peace in the world being firmly established.

Japan is given a great mission to save Manchuria from the design of Soviet Russia, free China from exploitation by the English and Americans, and then aid the independence of Thailand, Annam, and the Philippines, thus to bring about the happiness of the natives of the South Seas and India. This is the spirit of equality and brotherhood.

(2) While destroying the enemy show compassion towards those without crime.

Understanding this war as one between races, we must enforce our just demands on the Europeans, excluding Germans and Italians, without extenuation.

(3) Is the enemy stronger than the Chinese Army?

Comparing the enemy with the Chinese Army, since the officers are Europeans and non-commissioned officers for the greater part natives, the spiritual unity throughout the Army is zero. It must be borne in mind that the number of airplanes, tanks, and guns is far superior to those of the Chinese Army. However, not only are these of old types but their users are weak soldiers, so they are not of much use. Consequently, night attack is what the enemy fears most.

(4) We must be prepared for the war to be a prolonged affair and proceed with every preparation for a drawn-out conflict.

What course will the war follow?

Long voyage followed by landing operations.

All fields of operations are in the South Seas over a thousand miles from Formosa. Some places take a week to ten days to reach. This wide sea is crossed by convoys of several hundred warships and merchantmen. Looking back, our ancestors conquered this rough sea and carried on trade and fought with wooden sailing ships hundreds of years ago. After several days journey in the confines of shipboard, enemy resistance on the shores must be overcome and landings enforced.

What to do aboard ship:

The most important thing in landing operations is the maintenance of secrecy. If the enemy gets to know in advance where we plan to land, it will be very difficult.

There are many instances where a simple thing written in a letter has been the cause of the defeat of a whole Army, or where a word dropped over a glass of wine in a cafe just before departure has been the cause of secrets coming to the ears of spies.

Remember how the 47 Ronin kept their secret through such trials until they had avenged their Lord; encourage one another to do likewise.

There is a timely story of a soldier attached to a certain unit, who landed in Southern China during the present Incident, wrote a letter and dropped it in the sea, sealed in a bottle. The letter was carried by the tide to the coast of Korea. Supposing the letter had reached Vladivostok-what would have been the consequence? Often a clue is caught by aircraft and submarines which are at sea to find out the movements of out transport ships. Care must be observed in the disposal of dirt and rubbish.

Battle:

(1) Squalls, mist, and night are over all. Europeans are dandies, and delicate and cowardly. Therefore, rain, mist, and night attacks are the things they detest most. They consider night suitable only for dances but not for fighting-we must take advantage of this.

(2) Unlike the Chinese soldiers, our present enemy may use gas. If you cast aside your gas mask because of the torment of wearing it in the heat, the consequence may be serious.

Action in particular zones:

Action in swamps and paddy-fields
French Indochina and Thailand are, next to Japan, the chief rice-producing countries, and there are paddy-fields everywhere and large swamps here and there. When passing through these places, each soldier must use snowshoes (made of straw and sticks).

The present war is a war with Japan's rise or fall at stake. What is at the bottom of America's action of gradually prohibiting the export of oil and iron to Japan, as if to strangle her slowly by "silk-wool"? If they stopped these exports at once, Japan, in her desperation, might march into the South. If the export of the rubber and tin of the South are checked by Japan, America's own sufferings will be far greater than those of Japan, who is harassed for want of oil and ore. It has been the policy of America up to now not to anger Japan, though weakening her. Japan has waited too long– if Japan is patient any longer our aircraft, warships, and motor cars will not move. Five years have passed since the beginning of the China Incident. Over 1,000,000 comrades have exposed their bones on the continent. The arms of Chiang Kai-shek, which killed these comrades, were sold mostly by England and America. Both England and America are prejudiced against the solidarity of the Oriental races as something that stands in the way of their making the Orient their permanent colony and are concentrating every effort on letting Japan and China fight. Our allies, Germany and Italy, are continuing a battle of death in Europe against England, America, and Soviet Russia. America is already assisting England and is essentially participating in the war. For the existence of Japan herself and her obligation to the Tripartite Alliance, not a minute longer must be endured. Japan is confronted with a great mission, bravely to put the last finishing blow, as representatives of the Oriental race, to their invasion of several hundred years. Our incomparable Navy is in full readiness and is infallible: 5-5-3 is the ratio in figures, but if spirit is added, it is 5-5-7. Moreover, half of the British Navy has been smashed by Germany. For the Navy, now is the best time. The Chungking Government's umbilical cord is joined to England and America. Unless this cord is severed soon, the Japan-China Incident will never be permanently settled. The total settlement of the holy war is the present war. The spirits of over a hundred thousand warriors are guarding us. The mass for the dead comrades is to win this war.

Whilst showing our heartfelt thanks to the Navy, who, conquering thousands of miles of sea and removing enemy interception, are protecting us without sleep and rest, we must fully repay them for their trouble with good war results. We are privileged with an important and honorable mission to stand as representatives of the Asiatic race and to reverse the history of the world, succeeding our glorious history of 2,600 years and for the trust and reliance in us of His Majesty the Emperor. Both rank and file with one mind must exhibit the real value of Japan's sons in this full-dress display watched by the whole world.

The completion of the Showa Restoration to free Asia in realization of the Imperial will, which is for peace in the East, rests on our shoulders.

We'd like a SF Infantry between the tank and the left flank on the back row.

The matchups are:
vaillants vs. helcat
buidheo vs. JJsJuggernaut
droopy007 vs. dugrim
clorofila vs. antoi
frostberg vs. JAParker
JK2010 vs. gonzalan
kellogs10 vs. jeronimon
lucky91 vs. gheintze
van voort vs. tank commander
artimon vs. sam1812

I believe that everyone is facing a different opponent than the 1st round. Good luck everyone!

Allies -- we need some wins, we're down 7-2 with one 1st round match pending.

Fight for her majesty!

kellogs, I'll be glad to play you any time, but in the tournament the commanders take turns doing the pairings. van Voort did the pairings for round 1, so gheintze will do them for round 2.

Thank you sam1812. Gheintze has posted pairings and I will play Jeronimon.

I have a problem. I want to play my match this evening. But its impossible for me to play the map. I tried a game vs an real oppenent and Johnny. I can enter the map's lobby. But if the battle is starting I get an unkown error. Everyime. Reboot, rejoin and reinstall (the software) dont work. No solution. Everytime I paid the 3 coins. But never played. Any ideas?

By the way: I played 580 battles. This is the first time I get an error like this.

Hi!

We will not be able to play our match with Dugrim before the 28th at least. My fault, I am in holidays without computer.
So if you want to move on the 3rd round, we will complete our match later.

Sorry for the delay guys.

See you Smile

My records say that a total of four matches from this round haven't been played yet, and I don't think we've seen a Round 1 report on Helcat vs Artimon.

Is that correct?

As for my match, JK2010 is also on holiday...might return at the end of this week i believe....or at best play by next week...will have to wait and see what we can arrange.
Tried to get it in before he left...just didn't happen.

Until then....will just live through the victories of my ALLIED brothers!

Sam,

You have it right. 4 matches left this round and Helcat and Artimon left from the first round. If they can schedule their match, I will put up the first round scenario for them. They just have to let me know. Since I am going to attend the WBG Tournament in Lancaster, I am going to wait until after next weekend before moving on to the 3rd round. That gives plenty of time to complete the final 4 matches. Of course, if they complete them by this weekend, I will post the 3rd round sooner.
