    No need to throw insults because you are having trouble following along. Maybe take a break and try to calm down? The fact that someone as reasonable and intelligent as yourself thinks that I am a...
  2. I don't need mathmetical proof. This is not a...

    I don't need mathmetical proof. This is not a mathmetical argument. It is an issue of simple logic and applying it consistently, even if the result seems to initially be obnoxious. A few minutes of...

    It does not matter what the designers were thinking. What matters is that the majority of the players use a certain set of dice that yields a certain probability for the result. Buying dice that...

    How clever.

    Read the thread again. The idea is that there is a standard for dice. It was already explained.
  5. There is also nothing to say that both players...

    There is also nothing to say that both players can't use dice loaded to roll 6s. All of this has already been walked through in the thread. There is something wrong with using dice that are purchased...

    The problem, as stated, is that they give one player an advantage through dice.
  7. Loaded dice: Buying dice that give you an...

    Loaded dice:
    Buying dice that give you an advantage over the other player.

    Casino dice / 'better' dice:
    Buying dice that give you an advantage over the other player.

    Either they are both...

    Go to the store. Look at the dice they sell. Go to the tables where people are playing 40k. Look at the dice the players are using. Call dice companies and ask them what they sell the most of. You...
  9. I don't think anyone other than the designers...

    I don't think anyone other than the designers knows how the game was designed - whether it is a convenient assumption for your argument or not. It would be safe to assume that they know (and use) the...

    Why is it rubbish? What does it matter? It doesn't.

    Besides, the only reason outside of statistical perfection being part of your religion is that you want to have better die rolls. The is a...

    Feel free to actually think about what we are talking about and attempt to add something.

    An advantage is an advantage. Using casino dice is the same as using loaded dice. It is done for the same...
  12. What result is most likely has no impact on...

    What result is most likely has no impact on fairness if both players are subject to that same likelihood. For example, if both players used a set of loaded dice that rolled 6s half of the time, the...
  13. Which type of dice are used is really...

    Which type of dice are used is really unimportant. What matters is the both players have the same chances. That is what makes the game fair.

    There is no reason to buy the more expensive casino...

    Those corpses make it very characterful, but it just hurts the versatility too much. They make the same mistake on a lot of their kits (like with the skulls on the RoB board or the massive reapers on...

    I didn't know the price until now. Maybe they could have shaved it a little if they didn't bother sticking Cadian corpses all over it.

    I didn't make you respond. If you are done talking, then be done talking. Under normal circumstance, I am sure that you saying that would result in a chorus of angels.

    It is just that you were...

    You did nothing to defend your blatantly inappropriate action and did not address any of the criticism regarding your admittedly inappropriate conduct. The best you can do is a cat picture?

    Shifting the focus of the scrutiny is also a terrible way to change the subject.

    Please. The number of complaints is indicative of nothing, it is the nature of the complaints and the actual...

    Really?



    You cannot squirm out of what you just said a few minutes ago.

    Bad jokes are a terrible way to change the subject.

    I was referring to your need to ingratiate yourself with people who you think are 'cool' or will support you. It is not a desirable...

    Your statements speak for themselves.


    He is clearly much more gentle than I am, but it is nice to see you still stroking people regardless of the situation. You must have forearms like Popeye.

    Would I? Would I? What does whether I would or would not assume a position that I find to be unrewarding have to do with anything?

    The boards have not been 'clean' lately. They have been littered with inane, immature, and completely random chatter that floods the threads and breaks up the discussions. The mod doesn't interfere...

    The idea of that person closing a thread based on its merits is almost laughably ironic.

    If the discussion is ripe, it will be discussed. If not, such an innocent topic will simply sink like a...

    Looks very nice. I would drop the mirrors, though. What they add aesthetically will not begin to compare to how obnoxious it will be trying to reattach once it breaks off.
