Wow - what a finish... Delighted, of course, but the dice knew which side they were on!

Congratulations, and welcome back to our side.  It's clear that we need you.  (c:

The Herd played a respectable 5.46 PR for an "Expert" rating from XG (we need to get under 5 to be rated "World Class")  Julia played an amazing 2.22 PR or "World Champ" rating.


Overall, we threw away .666 inequity, or about two-thirds of a single game, while Julia only wasted .270 or about a quarter of a game.  Meanwhile Diane's dice sucked a full 3.46 in equity away from us.  Sometimes you're outplayed, sometimes the dice don't cooperate, and sometimes it's both. This match it was both.

Here's the match summary:

   Rolls                66                   66
   Luck based rating    44.50% favorite     55.50% favorite
   Luck based Elo       -223                -137



Here's a chart of our match winning chances.  We started out at 50% and it just went down from there.  (c:
