Okay now back to normal mode.....
MT, I will break you. In my most convincing Ivan Drago voice.
VIO made up some lame excuse so he could sit in the corner and lick his wounds from the last battle.
Well, thanks to all, I am feeling
but right now, the CC boards are in flux....or chaos,
depending on your point of view.
In the potty mouth game,
I think some
BANNING (dare I say this on these boards.....)
has gone on, as some of the players have been posting in the forums as well,
one of them got a
LOCK and BAN
response from a mode......but really, unlike here, it really really really took
an OMG lot of stuff.
In other CC news......once again, CC is under attack by someone? something???
entopy of some kind???????????
and is having a server overload.
which they hope to correct tomorrow with a server expert?
so, I guess they do not have one on duty as a part of their boards,
which probly also explaines the lack of understanding how to
generate true probablity dice rolls,
which I have read the solution that they use,
I now know a little better why the rolls show up the way they do.
A little note on CC, I joined in June of last year. There was only 3 pages of games to chose from at the time. In 10 months it has grown to over 22 on the weekends, I think that is causing the server problems more than anything.
Also MT, what are you talking about with the dice?
ref CC dice, well, I need to read it again,
and CC is kinda down for me at this time,
and my hope is to find and quote them on this,
but this is what I think they are doing,
a random number generator is creating a file of numbers,
then are accessed and used as dice rolls.
this array of numbers, according to CC, is used once and never again.
So, until I re-read it. I am viewing it as something I remember from
one of my classes concerning probability.
so here is my example.
an array of numbers is generated as follows,
ok, I just typed these randomly, so this is not a truely (in fact I rigged it to make my point)
generated random array. But, it should serve to illustrate
what I currently think is happening.
let us say it is 3 dice to 1.
What the "roll program" does is look at the array,
attacking player with 3-dice to roll gets,
and then defender with 1-die to roll gets,
then attacker gets
and the defender gets
well, that should be enough to make my point.
and so, even tho the numbers are generated randomly,
and even tho the array is accessed only once,
and yes, even if the array is accesed randomly,
there is never a true random 3-dice to 1-die outcome, ever....
now, after that, explaining the hardest math problems (probablitiy) I have
ever encountered (I found calculus and diffy-q easy by comparrison)
in a simple post, to be a little much.
Tho, as I have posted before, I am on the lookout for my math books,
while wandering my garage
only beause, I kinda find math fun at times
actually I like Math also, and Calc only became easy in college when I took a tutoring class that met 2 to 3 hours a day. Great class, great teacher, aced the final, but worked my tail off to do it.
Thanks to kindly CC players,
I am now available for even more CC games.
since this is the smack board I will be happy to invite you to the armies of darkness
gee, I love darkness!
or else, I would not always be joining those be in the dark "FOG"
In my best James Earl Jones voice,
"Don't make me destroy you"
after that joke MT, you are on the watch list
Watch out VIO, in the mountains, he might be saying it to you... He didn't even give me a choice, he just did it.
the line, "join us or die"
comes to mind
I find your lack of faith disturbing
I sense the conflict within you.
Free at Last, Free at Last,
ok, only for this weekend.
I am finally free of all CC games,
Having (dare I say it) won a game after 17 loses in a row.
Plan to improve on that percentage next week
Those are but numbers.. Did you have fun losing? Then it was worth it.
ref, Having fun loosing____well, YES, especially against you guys
It is always a relaxing atmosphere, where I can just be me and have a little fun.
and with that, waiting for new games
ref having fun loosing, just lost in a fun game that I started myself,
after that game from........well, VIO, knows how icky it was,
I started a game myself and met 4 other wonderful players,
who all stuck around and even engaged in some friendly chat.
and so I have started another public game,
or just click on me and look at all games I am involved in,
it should show up at the top of the list.
Will try to hold two open looking for an opportunity to enjoy
the fun company of South Bend CC-players
well, my 2030634
game has filled up. Looks like a cool bunch of players
Am saving room for one more with you guys, if any one posts ones up,
in case I stalk one of you down on the CC boards
currently am loosing all CC games I am in.
8 rolls in 3 different games, and not one win!
If only they had real dice
I am in a game with the BIG-X
we, have NOT
attacked each other, yet
we are both still in the game
I am in Austrailia
fighting some one else
I think we are going on to round-4
i suck at this game
You have to start somewhere, may as well be at the bottom. Everyone isn't that great to begin with. Remember, all of us have been playing for a long time.
and so do I
so take it from someone that knows
It is very helpful to remember that CC-dice,
do NOT behave like real dice.
so, if you are thinking that the odds are like 3 to 1,
think more like 3 to 2,
and since the CC dice systems plucks die numbers from an array,
the odds of someone with a one rolling-6
4 or 5 times in a row, are kinda high.
my current guess, is to not use auto-attack,
in hopes of landing into the array more randomly,
but so far this is not working too well either
Tone....I didn't realize that you were back in cc land, thought you only came out at turkeyday
His wife is letting him get out more often.
