Thread: Pseudo Random Distribution

  1. #21
    My friend has Shadowfiend in his SD pool over 50% of the time, over dozens of matches. It's uncanny.

    I'm assuming: The same random number generator that is used to calculate miss or proc chance is used to calculate available hero picks and appears prone to making the same picks over and over, possibly a result of the birthday paradox which would require a list to be maintained internally of what heroes have been randomed at what ratios and to provide a skew for low ratios and a negative skew for high ratios.

    I just played my 13th game in a row being on the dire side. That is a 1/2^13 chance which is 0.012% My sd draft has had razor way too many times... I feel like im being trolled by someone at valve.

    -sd is completely random. Only some of the attack modifier use PRD.

    It's not completely random, it's psuedorandom; i.e. unpredictable.

    What??

    Pseudorandom is more predictable than normal random....
    -sd doesn't use pseudo random
