"Random" Number Generator

Post by alex0809 » Tue Dec 24, 2013 2:02 pm

I noticed that in the game, it seems that at least for a certain time (simply because I have no way to find out after the first few moves because the game is obviously not always the same) the combat results are in fact not random but 100 % predetermined?

To tell you what I mean, in my (1.4) opening move with Austria-Hungary, first attack will ALWAYS be 3:2 result, second attack will ALWAYS be 1:3 result, third attack will ALWAYS be 0:1 result.
If I use a recon bomber before those three infantry attacks, this recon bomber will take 1 damage and the following infantry attacks will ALWAYS be 2:3, then 0:3, then 0:0.

I know that some games have seeds generated for a turn, but I never encountered something like this before - for the whole game? Is this just for the first few game turns to make sure it always has the same "fairness level"?

No your correct in your observation,the combats are predictable,with very little change on out comes.Which is boring and very annoying,what ever happened to chance and the good old dice roll.
