Backgammon can be a frustrating game when played against an expert player. But to learn the game and get to be a strong player yourself, you must play with random dice, take your lumps, analyze your games with gnubg, and learn to deal with the long losing streaks. If you are just playing for fun, and would like to HAMMER the bot for all the times it has crushed you in the past, GreedyGammon will work behind the scenes and make it happen for you. It is still a fun to play setting as the "cheating" only kicks in when you are falling behind.
So to clarify in detail..the cheat code will kick in if
- game not player vs player
- rating is less than 1600
- player chance to win is less than 40%
- winning stats against the bot is less than 30%
It will roll the dice 3x and pick the best roll out of the 3 rolls. HUGE advantage while maintaining the illusion of random rolls.
Well that is it.. if you reach 1600 and suddenly GreedyG is much tougher to beat, now you know why.
