I'm not the first person to notice that the supposed 50/50 dice rolls are not in fact 50/50 at all. As a player who uses the emperors own with the fanatic special rule and the vengeance mech i roll a 10 dice pool very often. In thousands of dice rolls I have not rolled higher than 7/10 and never on a roll that mattered. Tiny skirmishes involving my mechs and a small recon force of the opponents last hundreds of turns, despite the fact that I have as much as twice the dice. I have rolled 1's or lower over 30 times in a row with 10 dice. Meanwhile, the enemy rolls exactly 1 higher than my defense close to 50 times in a row. And if all this happened in one game I would have no problem. But this exact format has happened EVERY GAME (I've played about 20 times) and at least half of other plays I've had communication with tell me an almost identical story. I have had to give up entirely on playing the game. It feels like I am playing with a crappy, vindictive, pisspoor DM who chooses the results of his dice roll from behind a screen.
If I am curious as to other players experience and look forward to hearing about your experiences.
