The game is biased to give Me wins! Actual real scientific proof inside! Sensational! Clickbait!

As you know, @LittleWhiteMouse and me do a lot of what we call science. Figuring out how the mechanics work, testing them, etc etc. Today she had the idea to test what happens when two ships ram kill eachother with equal points.

For this we loaded in the same ships (Gremyashchy) on Polar and headed straight for eachother at full speed with speedboost, not touching the capture zones to assure points were equal.

First result, Mouse hosting, Mouse on left team roster, me on right team roster:

Second result, Mouse hosting, Mouse on right team roster, me on left team roster:

Third result, me hosting, Mouse on left team roster, me on right team roster:

Fourth test, Mouse noted that I maneuvered a little before each impact to ensure impact occurs, and she suspected speed at moment of impact might be the culprit. Mouse hosted, Mouse on left team roster, me on right team roster, Mouse at full stop, me at full speed at impact:

So there you have it! Actual proof of the game favoring me and giving me wins :D

It's good to be the king.

 

Ofcourse, Mouse now suspects that it might just be alphabetic, since Le -> Li or by account number and she's testing that with someone else now. But still! I'm going to bask in this sheer, pure, scientifically proven bias while I can. :D

Same captain skills?  Same modules?  

Shouldn't matter, but I'll run that by Mouse. It's always good to eliminate variables.

So I tested it with a player called @TheZeke00, and this is the result:

No worries lol. I bet there isn't anyone who can get 4 victories in a row like you.

So, you still reign supreme!:Smile_medal:

And what's the probability that you purposely lost for a reason?

Hmm....:Smile_coin:

Seriously?  Cat vs Mouse?  I'll take cat every time.

 

Have you never watched Tom and Jerry? Or Itchy and Scratchy for that matter? ALWAYS bet on the mouse. Except above, lol.

 

Seriously, though, i was under the impression that matches like this should have ended in a draw.

Yep, me too. I still don't know what the game uses to arbitrate a victory on, since team roster, spawn, host and player name don't seem to matter, yet against Mouse I could pull reliable victories.

Check ping rates, the server must be registering kills sequentially, not simultaneously. Ping rates wins, probably/

I'm in mainland Europe, Mouse is in Canada. I'm pretty sure she has better ping than me.

The more I think about it, the more I think we need to eliminate ping as factor. I get 110 ~ 120 ping to the server on average. I don't actually know what ping @LittleWhiteMouse gets, I'm just assuming Canada gets better ping than the NL because of geographical location, but it actually depends on the quality of the ISPs / net between the player and the server.

<Edit> MaliceA4Thought, who also lives in Canada, reports a ping of ~60. So my ping is a lot worse than his. Mouse could have a very different ping though, Canada is a big place.

Science, on the other hand, regularly refers to this as voodoo, hoekum, and balderdash.

Eh, about 80 miles?

<Edit> 80 miles in the NL is not the same as 80 miles in the US or Canada, everything is a lot more compact over here and 80 miles is a lot further than it seems to americans.

@Doomlock and I just ran a few tests of our own. 4 matches, three using Gremy v Gremy or Gremy v Akatsuki, and the fourth being Enterprise v Enterprise. 

 

I lost every time.
