Crazy dice rolls

Postby MrDevo » Thu Apr 03, 2014 4:36 am

Occasionally you'll hit a great run or a very rough spell, so I just thought it might be cool to have a place to share some of the better ones.

I just had a very bad stretch of rolls:

Game #84:

2014-04-03 04:17:31 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 2 Armies.
2014-04-03 04:17:42 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 2 Armies.
2014-04-03 04:17:54 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 2 Armies.
2014-04-03 04:18:06 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 2 Armies.
2014-04-03 04:18:18 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 1 Army, and defeating 1 Army.
2014-04-03 04:18:32 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 1 Army, and defeating 1 Army.
2014-04-03 04:18:42 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 2 Armies.
2014-04-03 04:18:53 - Patagonians launches a Attack on Yakutia from Western Siberia, losing 2 Armies.


Ouch!

Lost 14 armies to defeat 2.

I almost wish the two splits there in the middle had just been losses so I could have an absolutely epic streak of losses. :lol:

I've had a few games where I need this territory, and the one guy in their just keeps killing my troops.

I've never played in a game with Siege Engines/Infantry, so it's hard for me to appreciate how bad those rolls are. I guess it's time I try out one of those games.

You're the second person to mention having recurring trouble with the same territory, which is interesting.

i don't think the problem is the territory, maybe the problem be the fort, or the number of armies... three attacks, 12 armies lost

2014-05-17 00:29:26 - Kingdom of Alba launches a Besiege on Alba from Strathclyde, losing 1 Siege Engine, 3 Infantry.
2014-05-17 00:33:01 - Kingdom of Alba launches a Besiege (by sea) on Orkney and Shetland from North Sea, losing 3 Infantry, 1 Siege Engine.
2014-05-17 00:34:42 - Kingdom of Alba launches a Besiege on Alba from Strathclyde, losing 1 Siege Engine, 3 Infantry.


it's really frustrating this thing happening all the time.
