I’m telling you… this is my life. I had to set a rule for myself. If i lose twice in a row, i need to stop battling. At a certain point it’s not even the RNG, it’s me raging and making dumb mistakes, using the wrong counter move once or not thinking through the next swap in.
Honestly, the things that cause the biggest swings are dodge chance and crit chance. I don’t know a game on the planet that allows 50% miss rate for any duration of time. And I don’t know a game on the planet that allows 20% crit chance, or 40% or 50%. It becomes something you need to count on in order to play logically.
Just consider the most common RNG issue. Stegodeus versus Indoraptor. If Stego uses Thag, APR, SS (the best combo for that match), and indo uses Evasive, DSR, CI, – Indo has a 75% chance of winning that match every time. It only needs to dodge either the Thag or the APR to have enough health to take the SS and survive. And yet, how often do you actually see indoraptor get hit twice through cloak and drop dead?
For me? Happens so often that I barely consider Indo a good counter for Stegodeus. I’d rather use something like Magnapyrrator and hope for a 20% crit but know I’m gonna get two hits off than gamble on a 50/50 cloak.
I mean think about that. A 75% chance to win, and still everyone hesitates to open with indo or even use Evasive just because you HAVE to dodge at least once to make the move worthwhile. It’s silly.
