this game is super rigged

Post by neutronbomb » 18 January 2020, 05:23

every game seems like the winner is chosen beforehand. dumb rolls just when a player needs it, multiple yahtzees back to back. a yahtzee final roll to go from last to 1st. this is dumb as hell.

There is something seriously wrong with the way this game is programmed. There is no way it is random. It is absurd how often a large straight is rolled on the first try after I score one or my opponent. The same for a yahtzee. I get a yahtzee maybe every 3 or 4 games, yet as soon as I score one, my opponent does too immediately after. It's insane.

I just joined and noticed the bias in the system for these and more. I have not scored a Yahtzee in a dozen or more games, yet every opponent had one with 3 having 2! Really?

Nah, it's definitely curved. Curved up. I live by the mountains.

I agree, just got off a game where the player got 2 yahtzees in the first TWO ROUNDS then a long straight ONE THE FIRST THROW in the next round! No coming back from that, so what's the point. Also, in same game I needed ONE three in the last two rounds, ONE THREE, so I rolled 30 dice and ... not ONE THREE. Checked what the probability of this was ... it's 0.02% chance! Really? I mean, come on! THIS IS JUST BS! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Come on guys, don't be whiners...
The forums are not made for complaints like these.
And seriously, why the game should be rigged against YOU and not the opponent? What makes you feel you're so special?
Yahtzee is a game where luck plays a huge part. And therefore, lucky results can appear. That's life.

It's not just Yahtzee. I've noticed a similar thing in Can't Stop, also a game mostly based on luck.
If you're on a winning streak, you can get away with the most ridiculous risks. However, if you start losing, you can bet your sweet a$$ that it will last a while, even when coming back after a few hours. It seems the game algorithm just determines that you've won enough and now it's time to take some losses.
Yesterday I went from gold league all the way up to elite without real effort. I played one game early this morning and won. Went back later today and haven't won a single game since (dropped from 29th place to 59th). Even "safe" rolls ended prematurely while my opponents got away with the most ridiculous combinations. The last one actually won in four turns; he/she took a rope in each of the last three turns. Really?! I wasn't even half way on any of them.

Little update... Played ten more games. Won two of them (one forfait and one because my opponent was a greedy moron). The rest went super easy for my opponents. The last one ended the game in four turns, just like the one earlier today. Dropped to 72nd place.
The easy wins are often premium members. Could be coincidence, but somehow I doubt that.

Yes, all games are super rigged, but weirdly, I noticed ONLY the ones I lose on! 8-)
