I have a theory based on my many games mostly against AI. The dice algorithm is bias as part of the game difficulty. Bias die rolls that favor AI over player is an easy way to adjust difficulty where the fair way, in many opinions, is to program better AI.
One way they could do this without appearing too bias would be that dice rolling routine rolls twice and chooses the number that is least beneficial to the players and/or most beneficial to the AI. Could also be tweaked to benefit the player with bad numbers and low ELO. The roll twice, pick two AI 'cheat' would be bias but not obviously so. Especially if it didn't do it on every roll, but just enough to appear balance.
I do want to hedge and say this could all be the 'Backgammon Illusion'. When backgammon was very popular on the internet, there were players complaining about seeing double sixes 3-6 times in a row which is astronomically rare.' A few players saw this happened and would report the dice were bias or not random. The problem wast that there were millions of games playing every day such an occurrence was likely to happen somewhere. Thus the illusion that the dice were not fair. Sort of like the odds of winning the lottery are ridiculous, but with the number of tickets sold and the number of drawings (daily/weekly) the big prize will be given out from time to time.
So, hopefully I and a few others are victims of bad rolls in the big scheme of things, but a part of me sees this often enough that I have my doubts.
The red "X" is to cancel trades, you can't cancel being robbed, but you can easily deselect a card before confirming. Clicking top or bottom of the card adds or subtracts the amount of cards being dicardded or traded.
Yes, it does seem like a bug. I had one of the admins tell me that you won't see an offer if you don't have any resources, but there have been several times that I have had resources, even the ones they trade amongst themselves, and don't get an offer - not that they would actually accept it if I did see it and agree to the offer.
@Administrator Sorry for not making it clear, but i meant i didn't got a reaction on my email sent to email@example.com, i know and wouldn't expect a reaction on this thread. This thread is dead and ill just post here if there is a solution.
Would love to have the old version back. Sorry to the developers as I am sure in theory the changes looked great but they had a good thing going. I've been playing since March and know many other people that started then as well. I have not talked to a single person that likes the new version or is happy with the changes. The old version had some issues like the game locking up/freezing but that could have been fixed without an overhaul. Would love to hear the rationale for the overhaul and love to to see the users usage my guess is that it's dropped. Too slow and many parts of the overhaul slow down the users ability to play fast.
@Orp-Natac If you e.g buy the Basegame you can play as many matches as you want in Automatch, Custom match and Singleplayer. You can also use the purchase on any other device we support if you log in with your account.
