OK, I'm still essentially a noob to this game as I just started 3 days ago. I totally understand how non-random works, but was wondering how random games work. I play in the daily tournaments a lot and it would be helpful to know what the random rules precisely are.

I guess it would probably be best to give a few examples of what I'm talking about and let someone tell me how each situation works.

SITUATION #1

What happens when both players have the same attack?

Attacking player plays
3* 30 attack

Defending player plays
2* 30 attack

Is this just a 50/50 toss up? or does the defending player have a statistical advantage because he played the 2* card and would win in non-random? What about if they both had the same level cards, would attacker get a statistical advantage?

SITUATION #2

Does anyone know the exact odds on random rolls?

Attacking player plays
24 attack

Defending player plays
15 attack

Does anyone know the exact random chance the defender has of winning in this situation? Does it matter what the ratio or gap is? And yes, I realize if your attack is double that you automatically win. I'm just curious if the odds are the same when it's 60 vs 32 as compared to when its 36 vs 32 and does anyone know what the odds are? I hate to rely on luck, but sometimes I get desperate at the end of games and have no choice.

Situation #1: The first player has 30 out of 60 chanches (sum of both attacks) to win. The second player also has 30 out of 60 chances. This equates 50/50.

Situation #2: The first player has 24 out of 39 chances (again sum of both), the second player has only 15 out of 39 chances.
So the first player would have the advantage here.

Star count is irrelevant, only attack matters. So when it's 60 against 32 you should win more often than when it's 36 vs 32.

I'm not completely certain about that. I seem to lose more oftenthen win if I have higher attack in random. Is there a link to these odds anywhere?

Indeed there is:

Wrong perception, Aasha. You generally remember unfavourable outcomes more often than favourable outcomes; same for unlikely outcomes over likely ones. Plus you must not look at a dozen games but rather at hundreds of thousands. And no, obviously, UR did not reveal their source code, so you cannot check it directly
