Re: Poll on trialling the use of larger armies.

Omg why are we arguing over a poll. If Pete wants to run a big battle section then leave it be. You ate not obligated to play in it

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

We are just talking in circles. I swore I wouldn't get involved again and I did in the main page. It the same thing over and over again. If he wants to make a contribution to the discussion there or ask a question he can. But sniping in two different threads is not productive

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

Is Sabir Foot still in the game? Which army list are they in? They were removed quite promptly after I pointed out how insane they were vs a wide swath of units in FoG2. Part of me regrets doing that since it precluded me from quietly getting the army in an FoG2DL season and wrecking the place with...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

It is certainly not because I am jealously hoarding knowledge, I can tell you that. Those videos you see took a lot of time and effort to make. Especially the AARs. It doesn't help that I am no good at video editing so it probably takes me a lot longer than it should because I am a dummy at it. But ...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

That might work in single-player. You rarely will get a chance to maintain a reserve and deploy a flanking force in multi-player (unless you have a RNG event in your favour at the start of the battle) I was at work and couldn't finish a response before posting but this statement really irks me. Tha...

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

I agree that they would still be a solid buy at 45. I still remember the terror that was Sabir Foot. Impact foot with 50% bows.....lol what? :lol: Are there a lot more mixed units coming up in the future? If not, I see no reason to muck with the points right now. I don't have the RoP DLC, but durin...

I imagine he probably already has one. I do not. I am what psychologists call a "low conscientious" person meaning that I typically do not do work that doesn't interest me :oops: . PhDs typically require the opposite :lol: I can see what you are saying but it was quite strange how the RNG seemed to...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

First of all, thanks to Pete and other who ran the tests. I am just going to recap the mechanics of combat, the basic math behind it and predicted results vs actual data before going onto more discussion. Melm already had a good post on this but I'll make sure everything is visible. What I expected ...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

You don't need such huge sample sizes. You can plot the expected means of results and CLT tells you that out of whack results will become apparent exceedingly quickly.

Just eyeballing the figure confirms this.

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

You can stop now Pete. There is nothing wrong with the code. I am work so I can't post in depth but will do so later tonight

Edit ie how the data lines up with expected values.

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

To be fair we should do a rigorous test of the Win Draw Loss RNG and the CT test RNG. I mean that will settle it once and for all. Bugs in code do exist

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

I understand this as well. But the point is that in many games I play one player gets all the double drops and the other player hardly gets any. Sometimes this works in my favour and sometimes it doesn't. That is not often is what gets complained about though. "Woe betides me, my master plan fell t...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

"Presumably the % is the same for close order war band units? So, on average, a double drop should happen once every 25 times in impacts between similar war band units? You shouldn't think of it in those terms of averages. That implies regularity of evenly spaced events which is not the case here. ...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

My opinion on this remains the same as before, I am ambivalent about reducing the odds of double drops. Without going into the whole "luck vs skill" thing again that has been beaten to death many times before, I will say that my opinion that medium foot gains the lion's share of the benefits here re...

Re: Double-Breaks Far too Frequent

Since Beta forums are not released to the public after the DLC goes live, here is a selection of posts from the thread RBS mentioned. I feel it is not inappropriate to show here given NDA is now over. I do not know if this was an intended side effect but it appears that this change has resulted in a...
