    Re: [OT]Dueling game test

    Is everyone just unsure about how to move forward? Not sure what there really is to talk about, it's hard to form a strategy when we're all against each other.

    Re: [OT]Dueling game test

    Well the best bet is to pit a weak voter against someone with high voting power, like numbers and stack the weaker person against the stronger.

    Then the weaker person gains an attribute, so we pit another weak player against them and so on and so forth.

    My logic is probably not perfect, as I am at work and phone posting.

    Yes, that's the basic strategy that makes sense to me. So we'd need 5 to vote for the low power and 2 to vote for the high power. That's assuming the high power also votes for himself, making 3 votes for himself.

    Well we would only really need 1 vote on high power, plus their own vote.

    Re: [OT]Dueling game test

    So what if I just voted myself? I guess it's a risk, if you guys see it as a selfish attempt to gain armor, you can all vote to get someone really strong against me. Hmm. >_>

    I'm not sure I understand how the combat works though. Does only the guy with the highest initiative score make an attack, while he recieves no damage in return?

    Tactically speaking you're correct. I was looking at the numbers before the game. Without the change TC made to the rules, I had 5 attack 3 defense 2 initiative(because I'm stupid and don't know how to read the letters in my own nick) vs everyone elses COMBINED 10 attack 3 defense 7 initiative. So, all I had to do was wait until the last minute of every day, and post my vote to decide who wins every fight, and I was going to do it the exact way you described. The theory is the same now, just not as swingy as before. I think this game can be solved mathematically without a ridiculous amount of effort, and that we can determine who the inevitable winner is with optimal play from everyones part right now. Not sure if that's good or bad.

    Although...randomized armor. The spread on the randomization needs to be dropped imo? maybe 2-5 instead of 2-7? maybe starts at 2, randomized to different attributes, goes up by 1, still randomized to different attributes, per round? I see a 7 drop on the first round essentially making anyone win the game immediately.

    @korial
    Early on we would want to vote someone with weak voting power and build them up. You have the third highest. I was thinking Kestegs.

    I don't think this works. My understanding is initiative gives you random seed for each attack, making no battle a sure outcome.

    Ex.

    P1 has 5 initiative. P2 has 1 initiative. That means each round P1 has a 5/6 chance of being attacker and P2 has 1/6 chance. That does not mean P2 won't get stupidly luck and get 5 attacks in a row to win.
