Why is Strategic 1v1 so much luck dependent?: 1/21/2015 01:09:36

Move order: Random
Rounding mode: Weighted random

Just why? It makes the game not that much skill-based

I feel it actually makes it more because you have to decide when to risk the 3v2 vs 4v2, and cant just have your entire expansion planned out

I had always played 1v1s only with friends for fun back when i used to play in 2012, warlight feels so much better as a team game to me; today i decided to try this strategic 1v1 and it left me very disappointed...
It feels like this random component hugely affects the outcome of games (sometimes you need to do 3v2 that decide if you win or lose the game), and it seems like there's no "solid" way of playing them

or maybe it is just me

in move order random,there are sometimes some compulsory moves you must make if you are inside your opponent's region
but in cyclic,you know where to deploy,when to deploy,if or not to attack some place 1st move for sure.
but even that strategy can be countered if you're predictable.
this leads to another domain of thinking which we otherwise do not do in move order random.
thus in cyclic order we're forced to think more,and so its better.

I think it is probably because settings never changed since when the 1v1 ladder was created

For example, the last Seasonal ladder was played with Straight Rounding mode, and the Real-Time ladder is played with both Straight Rounding mode and Cyclic move order

2v2 ladder seems even worse than 1v1, because it even has 16% luck modifier, along with Random Rounding and Random Order

I think the ladders would be much more competitive without the RNG component

I agree with Sephiroth, luck should get banned out of the ladders.
