So how could anyone ever make it up the leaderboard if you have bad dice all the time against high ranks? :roll: How did a cook with a score of around 300 end up beating me and about 4 others?
‹Maxleod› are Mitties cookies gluten free?
‹CatchersMitt14› no, they're not!
‹CatchersMitt14› yet she still keeps hoarding them behind the couch!
‹CatchersMitt14› i think she might have semp back there licking all the gluten out of them for her.

Not true. I just played a game today against a lower ranking player and my dice were averaging 3.00 against him and he was averaging 4.8 against me. It was a slaughter. And that was a 10+ round game. So your statement is null.

I always wondered why people don't complain when their opponent has bad dice. Yes the dice can be streaky but you have to learn to quit attacking (this ability has eluded me) during the bad streaks.

If it is done deliberately than this is't a bug. Your problem has been solved. No charge.

Although some opponents never seem to have bad dice against YOU when it matters (first few rounds).

But as you say, it's not a bug, the game is programmed that way. Just avoid them and play the people you have the unfair advantage over until you're rated high enough to get fair dice! :P
If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through

Pretty sure it's true but in the exact opposite way the op intended. Dice for higher ranks are nerfed when playing lower ranks. Stripers that play me only roll 2-6 while I only roll 1-5.
Source: science facts and stuff.
bad dice happen to good players
...We'll roll up a mighty score never give in, shoulder to shoulder we will fight, fight, fight fight fight.

Are the dice actually streaky or is Evil Semp making some sort of sarcastic mod joke?

The dice can definitely be streaky at times, but that's how randomness works. We all get games where the dice are just being plain evil, and others where they've helped you slaughter the opponent. When I was a mod, I was joking about mod dice in the chatroom and someone went all mad at me. There are no advantages, although, it's still fun to make jokes about there being mod dice.

I actually lost a tribe game recently against an equally ranked opponent and I just couldn't get a break against him at all. He could see it and mentioned it in the chat. I don't complain about dice, I take the good with the bad. While this was happening, all my good dice went into another game against an equally ranked opponent and I slaughtered him. Neither game was fair, but shit happens.

I DO get bad dice against low ranking opponents, but 9 times out of 10, I'm still going to win the game. Low ranking players make stupid mistakes and that's why they don't rise up the ladder. Instead of complaining about the dice, go join the CC academy, or whatever it's called now.

Mine are still streaking. 30 non-doubles games since my last post and I've only won 6. I'm down a solid 700 points now and it's not bad strats. The dice have been averaging sub 3.3 for me every time I've checked and my opponents' defense dice have never been lower than 3.6 and that's pushing it back to the max last 25 battles. It's been a nightmare. I lost a 60 on 20 just yesterday to win a 12 player classic match. Just absolutely heartbreaking...
