The guys are in the studio to show you a new trick with Space Wolves. In particular it surrounds the idea of Wolf Lords and re-rolls. See what you think of this one.
Yeah Darryl is back!
i have some new cheese for Darryl!
Wait, what? Is Darrel back or is this an old recording? Anyways, there is a Space Wolf player at the gaming club I go to, he never seems to have as much luck with his wolf lords, maybe I’ll point him to this vid ;-P
More Darrel! More Darrel! More Darrel!!!
I wouldn’t really call this cheese, I’d just call it good tactical list building.
With 2D6 there are 36 possible outcomes. A roll of 11 or 12 will fail. We know there are three possible ways to fail; Roll (5,6), (6,5) and (6,6).
Statically, that means there is a 33/36 chance you pass on the first roll. That equals 91.7%
To calculate the total chance of passing you add the probabilities of the two possible successful outcomes. That is, you pass the first roll OR you fail and then pass the second roll. That looks like….
(33/36) + [ (3/36) X (33/36) ] = 99.3%
If you do it in reverse, you could say, to FAIL, I would have to fail both tests. That would look like…
(3/36) X (3/36) = 0.7 %
The chance of failing plus the chance of success must equal 1.
99.3% + 0.7% = 100%
So the check works out. And, as usual, Darrell is wrong.
Anyone see a math error?
