Worst Dice Spread?... Tue, 15 May 2012 09:43
I know - dice are part of the game...

But - I just finished playing Sainte-Mere-Eglise and my opponent rolled ... Ready?... 62%, followed by 50%... Not sure how I managed to pull three medals out of the two games while rolling low 30s, but... there is that I guess...

Not that I wasn't a believer previously, but I'm *really* a believer in 6 or 7 medal games and the idea that it helps ~ Equal Out ~ the dice a bit...

No more 4 medal games for me!!

Any notable spreads you care to share?...

Hi, yes your right. A couple of unfortunate rolls and half of your force has been eliminated by round 2. I lost St M. Eglise in 6 turns once ( 3 turns each ) Its hard to laugh off but it is still one of my favourite senarios.

I find when games are over too quickly, it helps if the 'luckier' player acknowledges his/her luck, as it does offer some comfort. However, bear in mind one man's luck is another man's masterful tactical manouver.

I bet you play and win alot more 4 medal games Smile

Yes I have had one of those days today too.

At Escape via the Coastal Road I got slaughtered twice. In both games my opponent rolled 100% hit rate in his final turn. It felt like I couldn't hit the side of the barn and my opponent seemed to hardly miss.

Not to mention the turn where I rolled 6 flags and no hits from 8 shots on infantry. How much fun is that Question Question Question

And don't get me started on the ranking points lost. Laughing Laughing Laughing

I'm still learning to suck it up and move on.
My thanks to those opponents who have and are helping me to learn this important lesson.

Not my worst dice spread...

Open game on Cobra won 5/2
I had 14 on 28 on infantry (50%) and 4/9 on tanks (44%). Overall 49%

The thing is my opponent did 81% on infantry (17 on 21) and 100% on tanks (2 on 2).
Overall 83%.
Well, some of my retreats were blocked and he did an air attack. But still...

it's a +34% overall for my opponent !

And yeah - it does even out... I just rolled 72% to my opponent's 23 on Operation Cobra... I'm ashamed to say I only won by a 5-1 margin...

Too bad they did not have a expected hit rate taking into account all factors of all the targeted units when they were fired upon. This would give a truer picture of how good or bad your hit rate was as opposed to your expected hit rate.

Rolling stars and flags in usually a bad thing as far as killing off figs go - but not when units cannot retreat or are hit by AP. looking at a sceen that tells me I just rolled 12 stars in a battle were I rolled 40 dice may seem terrible - but if 6 of those stars were rolled after I played AP - then that is not so bad.
