Ratings and Reviews
Rigged, but not the dice
This is such a good app...almost. The dice are fine (it even shows your distribution of rolls!) which is more than can be said for almost any other app I’ve ever heard of. But the rigging comes in on the disconnects. I have never had a game voided by disconnect when my position is inferior, and every single disconnect comes in a position that is not only advantageous, but is often a guaranteed win or close to. The chance of disconnect has zero correlation to the strength of my internet connection, but is quite plainly correlated instead to occur some percentage of the time when the user is about to win. I have not once won a single game by disconnect, with the exception of games that have clearly been abandoned by a human opponent. All of this on top of the flat-out stingy 6 games/day allowance really hurts an app with an otherwise nice interface and good software.
Worst Dice, Great Interface
The bad reviews noting bad stats are accurate. Japanese flags have something helping them.... I changed my flag from American to Japanese and went from a struggling 25,000 pointer to a 100,000 player over night.
Dice do impossible rolls for right player....
30 moves ahead? Suddenly a “great” player gets (literally) 2 double 6’s and a double 5 and you lose.
Hammering a high score opponent? System shuts down and you not only lose but you lose points.
I’ve lost more (dozens and dozens) games by “great” opponent getting 3+ doubles in last quadrant end game.
Tonight alone I lost 2 games against high players who were behind 200+ to my 100+.... AND I had them blocked with a row of 6 doubles .... System loses contact and I lost both games and points.
I have multiple wireless antenna throughout my house... it wasn’t my phone losing contact.
The random number generator just isn't accurate... worse.... it does seem rigged... but that can’t be proven.
Last night I was pounding a Japanese flag player then he got the only two rolls possible to change the game... a double 5 the s double 4. Suddenly I’m behind with two men out.
Lots of better games out there but Heroz does have the best user interface...
Is it worth it?
Do you throw your phone when you are clearly being ripped off? If so don’t get this.
Good game but...
Dice do not appear rigged - only online game where I can say that. I haven’t done the statistical analysis on this one yet, but 1/18 rolls for the opponent are not happening all the time so that’s a good start.
It does disconnect way too often. Please move the servers to AWS to improve reliability. As others noted, it is not due to internet connectivity on the user end.
Finally, it would be helpful to understand the error rate analysis a bit better. A two ply analysis seems inadequate if it is just looking two moves ahead and then using a heuristic to rate the position...
