    I swear there is a hidden mechanic that makes the AI harder to beat on every 3rd consecutive matchup

    This is part of my analysis. I have observed no such bias.

    Again....wow.....this should not have even been close, but we all know the "rigged" RNG on those multiples of 3.... 25% of crit....0/6 vs 3/3.....ya ok right

    That's not all. Look at Gowron's first three rolls: 414, 442, 828=414*2. This is pretty common case. There is something very odd about this rng for sure.

    I've always assumed those "rigged" rolls were coding written into the game to prevent ties, since a tie in The Gauntlet would be pretty bad.

    It always stings to be on the short end of RNGesus' Gauntlet wrath, but in my experience we benefit just as often as we are victimized.

    IMO this becomes more glaring because the preferred Gauntlet strategy is to chase streaks and not rank. Given that this is the overwhelmingly popular Gauntlet strategy, I think most players would prefer for the attacker to get the advantage, not the defender, since the attacker winning "ties" benefits BOTH players: the attacker continues a streak and the defender loses trophies, knocking them down the table to create theoretically easier matches later to encourage their own streak.

    To summarize: this is not strictly an RNG issue with regard to individual rounds, it is a conflict between that AND the RNG linked to reward chests. If the streak chests get nerfed and the ranked chests get a buff, this issue goes away...

    --EDIT--

    ...because then you would WANT the defender to win ties, so you could hang on to your trophies on defense to hold on to your rank. After a re-read of my post, I concluded this was implied, but not clearly stated. The issue is that defenders currently hang on to too many trophies, which is counter to the reward distribution currently in place that favors streaks over rank.

    I'm at the Library, so I was actually able to screenshot this one!!!!!

    I'll NEVER forgive her for Little Callie, and I love watching her die TWICE because of what she did to Little Callie.

    But, she did earn a little respect here.....

  • I didn't screenshot it, but while I was trying to process rounds and wear out my crew, my 2x fatigued M. Phlox out crited and beat a full strength M. Phlox. Got a few extra merits for the win. Sometime RNG rolls my way.

    And then minuet V mirror JLP and this most welcome result coming out...

    Had my unfatigued Caretaker go down to an Etana Jol on a one skill, no crit Engineering match up today. Deepest sigh in a while on the gauntlet.
  • Every now and then RNG is in my favor, even on the 3rd roll. FYI both have 25% Crit and the Caretaker was 100FE with top roll of over 800 available.

    Out of curiosity, has anyone rolled a 0 or a 6?

    Here you go.

    I like how 90% of the time when the "computer" has at least 25% crit chance and only 3 rolls it always score a crit at least one.

    I just play for the achieves.

    Even constantly being at the top 3-10 I can say at the top of my lungs, the gauntlet it's a joke.
    65% vs 25%

    When is a crit not a crit?

    842 > 768, therefore it's a crit. B)

    The 374 in this picture is not a crit.

    At this point this is the total opposite of "wow", but no matter how close this should be...

    ...the results are ALWAYS...
