its exactly the same.. you can lose to 2 and win to 2, while in the orignal you lose to 1 and win to 1.. they are both 50% - 50%... its the same thing...

yeah, for someone to have an advantage or disadvantage, they need something the other player doesn't have like the first move or a handicap or the bad controller etc, but the chance of tying went to 33% to 20%.

not exactly, since there are more options than normal, and it's for 2 people, the more options (even though it is as you say 2 to 2) makes your chances greater than 50%.. I can't remember the equation, but I'll give you an example on this math, that makes it a bit clearer .. you got a dice, you got a 16,6% chance to hit a 6, considering your previous statement, the chances if rolled another time would still be 16,6% since we now have twice the number of sides, and the 6 counts for 2.. but wouldn't you agree that your chances of hitting a 6 is better with 2 throws, than just 1?

ok, got the formula now..
every unit has 2 they can defeat, so firstly we calculate the first one they can.
we got 5 possible moves, where as 1 can hit (for now) which means that 4 is a miss..
so first we got 4 / 5 chance (or 20%)
now they have 1 more they can hit, that's 4 / 5 chance again..

4/5 * 4/5 (4*4 and 5*5) = 16 / 25

which means that 16 times out of 25, you will miss..
that means that (25-16) 9 times out of 25 you will hit..
which means that you have (9*4=36 and 25*4=100)
so you have a 36% chance of hitting your opponent opposed to the original 20%

Don't have time to confirm it but it looks about right. Nice job!

What you mean to say is that it would be less likely to draw, otherwise the win and loss ratios are the same 1 to 1 as in the original version. In fact, you could interpret it as being worse off because in the original there is a (2/3) 66% chance you wont lose while in this version there is only a 3/5 (60%) you wont lose. Alternatively you may think you are better because in the original there is a 33% percent chance to win but in this version there is a 40% chance to win.

Couldn't Spock vaporize all of that?

I'm sad because I can't make the hand signal.

At first, I thought this was a Satanic post because of the star.

I mistaked it for a pentagram.

Don't ask how.
