|I admit upfront that my perceptions below are just that perceptions as I have not trawled through all my previous games to count up the stats......|
But is it just my own mistaken impression that rolling a "2" after a goal is scored seems to occur more frequently than the other numbers?
I even had someone "confirm" this perception to me by suggesting that if a "1" is rolled after a goal is scored, it is converted to a "2". As much as I want believe this (as it would confirm my perceptions) - I really don't think this is the case as it would not mirror the rules of the game (ie reroll any 1's after a goal) but also throw the goal-kick distribution off.
Has anyone looked at the goal-kick distribution? And are "1"s truly ignored and a new number generated randomly should a "1" be rolled after a goal is scored?
|I looked at the player who had the most goals in last competition level 1: Hrune. In his 10 games 39 goalie kicks:|
2: 6 times
|So Hrune gets all the 4's giving me all the 2's to even out the odds. Makes a lot more sense now.... |
Postscript, in the same Competition I counted the rolls I got my opponent scored a goal:
2: 5 Times
While I answered in jest above, seems like there is a small grain of truth in the matter, especially when I look at what my opponent's scored:
2: 2 time
(Obviously, 4 OT goals not counted above as the game ended before the next roll was generated.)
|Here are the stats from my games:|
|I freely admit it is my own myopic mistaken impression. Because I usually hate a "2" on the kick-off so much, I tend to remember them more vividly than the other rolls, leading to selective reinforcement of a mistaken assumption.|
|I have results similar to those of the others, and as for the interpretation of them I agree with RP. |
|not to worry, 'Coach' is coming............. |
|'Coach' has dice too... so prepare yourself to handle the unlucky rolls you're going to get there too |
As a matter of fact I'd rather roll a 2 on the kick-off than a 3...
