0% Straight is a bit formulaic.

16% Weighted is pretty good if you're looking for guaranteed attacks but a bit of a wild card on remainders.

75% weighted is just right out.... 5v2's failing more than they seemingly should, 2v1's failing 3 in a row, makes me pull my hair out.

Can someone recommend some good luck settings between the 16% and 75% weighted?

Maybe something where 5v2's and 2v1's always win and consistent remainders?

17% isn't the same as 16%, as Fizzer said in a blog post "4 armies attacking 2 armies will never fail at 16%" whereas they can at 17% luck apparently, the chance just rounds to 100% on the analyse graph.

I just set the slider somewhere in the vague direction of a low luck modifier value, but not as far as 16%.

Well, if you're looking for something between 75% and 16%, there is 50% luck 5v2 always win and 3v1 always win

If you want 5v2 and 2v1 always win, you'd probably need to modify kill rate.

If Fizzer said that then there's apparently something wrong here. 4vs2 WILL fail at 16% luck.

0% SR no fog cyclic move order is best, no luck to blame.

4vs2 WILL fail at 16% luck.

No? With 16% luck, and 60% offensive kill rate it is 0,84*0,6*4=2,016, the lowest possible outcome kill 2. With 17% it is 0,83*0,6*4=1,992, so it can happen you kill only 1.

0% SR by far. I prefer skill to win. Next choice would be %0 WR

I'd take 16 SR, over 0 WR.

0 WR 3v2 can fail. Can't on 16 SR.

Is that formula accurate by the way widz?

I wouldn't imagine it is.

.6*4/1.16 is what I'd expect rather than *.84

.6*4/1.16=2.069

Either way you'd be correct, 4v2 can definitely never fail.

also for SR, if you attack a 2 neutral with 1 army at 16% it will do nothing and lose your army. at 15% or lower it always takes off 1 army from the neutral. can be useful for effective expansion
