Re: Lord of the Board is rigged

If you think the site is cheating you, why do you keep playing there? Wouldn't leaving the site make more sense?

Because he's gathering data that it's cheating?

Agreed. It's a classic. If you don't think that sites/programs are cheating you, you'll find it very funny.

Re: Lord of the Board is rigged

Why would LOTB have to cheat to make money? Surely there are a sufficient number of bad players on there spending money on coins to keep everyone at LOTB gainfully employed.

Re: Lord of the Board is rigged

I have played several hundred games on Lord of the Board and I am convinced that some players have the ability to manipulate the dice. Whether these are bots, or real people perhaps working for the developer, or hackers, I am done playing there.

I have noticed the same thing. What BS.

Re: Lord of the Board is rigged

Why has the site decided that it's good business to favor your opponents over you?

That whole stuff would be far more creditable if you collect some numbers and share them. Claim to have identified a pattern is almost always an illusion....
