If you're a top player, it's going to take a large amount of challenges. Because even players that are better than you are going to lose on luck sometimes - it is for this reason that you see brilliant players losing to mediocre players quite frequently.

A wise player once said that you can never exceed a 65-70% win rate against good players.

Lets say you're a good player, and even if someone wins against you 70% of the time. The chance of them beating you 5 times in a row is 0.7^5=0.16807~17%
So according to my really rusty stats they'd need to challenge you about 6 times to expect a win. (It's a geometric distribution right?)

Plus there is no guarantee this person would follow through anyway, especially without using their real identity.

Would you allow someone to challenge you 6 times in a row? Or are we going to have to find 6 players who are a lot better than you? The chances are one of them will beat you (but they might not..)

Also are you using bad grammar to hide your identity, or is English not your first language?

I'm talking about playing 6 lots of 5-game-series. If the player usually beats you 70% of the time, they'd have to play 6 lots of 5-game-series to expect a payout.
Since they chance they'd a 17% chance to win 5 games in a row.

If you are really that good then you should make it win against you 3 times in a row....if you think about it if someone beats you 3 times it shows that the person is already better than you..so 5 times is just too much and with the luck involves even supreme players will lose. But nonetheless i like your idea and do you mind posting the challenge games that you get?

The real question is whether you are good enough to beat them all 5 times straight. That is clearly not the case for Panda and I doubt it would even be true for Arun.

But hey, it's always easy to prove your supremacy by stacking the deck in your favor. I mean, obviously you are the superior player if you can accomplish something that is statistically 97% likely...

Win, if you played another player with the same skill level as you then you would only have a 3% (1 in 32) chance of losing 5 consecutive games.

In other words, your challenge is complete crap and constructed to favor you to the extreme.

A truly excellent player would base the wager on the opponent's ability to beat them ONCE in FIVE tries, not FIVE in FIVE.

Why would I take on a challenge where I could win 2 of 3 games and still lose? That makes no sense.

Your challenge is not an actual challenge but one heavily weighted in your favor. A true challenge would be guaranteeing that you could win 5 straight against any opponent, or at least 4 of 5. Then I would give you some credit.

Richard, I think you've misinterpreted his challenge. I don't think he's doing it to prove that he's better - or even a good player. I think it's more like marc's tower challenge a few months ago.

I think he's providing a tool for challenging yourself, much like the single player levels or a 2v1 game. Although, since (even if you're better) the losses may only be luck, it's not a very good challenge.

Richard, what the hell? Why does it matter if it's in his favour? He just says, "if any of you can beat me 5 times in a row I'll buy you a clan."

He is the only one with anything to lose i.e. the cost of a clan. The challenge is for, get this, the challenger. It's supposed to be difficult to win the clan.
