Which kind of luck do you prefer on average? Or which do you prefer in certain game types?

I am a person that would rather everything be 0% straight round, including Strategic 1v1 settings.

I personally like 33% Luck, but between these 2 I must go with 16% Luck. 0% Luck makes things simply too linear in my opinion. Though I must agree on Straight Round.

Seems like I'm not alone :)

I just can't stand luck. I lost a ladder game today that I had a huge advantage in because my opponent got a 7v5 attack to work. So I ended up losing. That is, in my opinion, the biggest problem of the ladder. It comes down to luck in many games.

Weighted is far superior. season 8 or whatever that i won was straight round and it was a total calculation fest.

Depends on the map for me. I'd say I mostly prefer 0% though.

Seems you make confusion from weighted and straight.
0% weighted is best.
Sometimes 0% striaght work

If you want to kill the luck you should think about cyclic move order too :P

you guys complain when luck causes you to lose, but you dont complain when you get good luck.

strat 1v1 should still be 16% WR imo

The template I am using for my tournament has minimal luck. 0%, hands down.

0% weighted is my favourite. 5v3 and 7v4 always succeed, but 3v2 still have that 20% chance to fail.

I like the variation right now with the seasonal ladder but I could no way handle 0% for more than 20 games. Too much calculations.

16% I prefer. Its all about risk management and in many cases (those who complain about luck but rarely note when they have been the fortunate one) emotional management. Definately 16% for the main ladder.

I dont understand complaints of calculations. First, there is the analyze button. Second, do you just attack without calculations with luck? That makes no sense. I am sure all the great players know exactly how many should die with %16 luck. Only difference is with no luck you are certain.

Also, just like with any setting, once you play it enough you memorize attack amounts and it becomes second nature

I agree WR is good though

0% weighted sometimes. 16% weighted other times. 16% straight round for some 1v1s. never straight round for team games. never 0% straight round for any game. 75% weighted for old school fun.
