I like themes, how about you? What’s a theme? THAT’S WHAT!

Starting Wednesday at 9PM EST is DOMINATION: Gambit week!

What is Gambit? Well, aside from a super awesome fictional character it’s now a Domination theme.. What does it mean?

– Cards cost 1 scoop (instead of 4)

– If you have any cards when the round ends, you lose

Modest Improvements are being removed

Have fun and play nice.

If you have time to use them all, maybe.

But most of the time when I make towers, I run out of time still having MIs. Takes time to use those mothers.

The most anal, compulsive tattle tale on this site, mess with me and meet the ban axe ****

Maybe I’m wrong here but just putting this out there when there may still be time to fix it. Let’s say you get a scoop. Should you convert it into a card? The math says yes.

-You have 3/8 chance to get a Modest Improvement which gives you 2 scoops. Expected return is 3/8 * 2 = 0.75 scoops.

-5/8 chance you can’t get an MI: that leaves you with your next best option, the Thief. Chance to get it in this scenario: 3/7. Expected return: 5/8 * 3/7 * 1 = ~0.268

Total return on scoop invested: 1.018 and 5/14th of a card.

Seems like a pretty bad idea to me, allowing players to convert scoops to cards to scoops for big profit.

I won’t bore you with the math, but when prioritizing cards this way:

MI > Thief > bumhole > Shotgun > Destroyer > gay and useless cards

You’ll get a return per scoop of (the aforementioned) 1,018 and on average enough ammo to destroy 1,607 scoops. That’s all earned from buying and using cards. Again, I may have missed something, but I’m not really counting on it.

I don’t see the real point in saving up cards. I personally just buy a card when I’m going to use it, making this a fail theme, at least so far as the disadvantage it gives. Love the advantage though.

There is a limiting factor – since attack cards are a quarter the price, there may not actually be any cards to steal (unless you happen to be in a bracket with klan raiders Log in to see images! ) – you could end up with 30 thiefs in your deck and nothing to do with them.

That 5/14th of a card is going to be an attack card (removing more scoops from play) or a card you’ll want to burn to get it out of the way (or a shield to try and protect your very vulnerable earnings)

1.018 return per card means you’ll need to play 56 cards to earn a single extra scoop on average, of which 20 or so would need to be thiefs.

I’m not totally sure that any changes are necessary…

If that math’s right and you can get an insane amount of scoops when trading in cards, wouldn’t a simple solution be to remove the MI? Or convert it to only give 1 scoop?

I think it should be possible to keep even the top bracket free of scoops if the nonraiders concentrate on destruction. Log in to see images!
