  • Hello, I happened to come across your Prediction Gudie for RbY. It was a very good read, thank you for having taken the time to write it and make it publicly available here! I was wondering how you know precisely which numbers to assign to the payoff differences between certain choices

    Yeah, that's basically the hard part. The first number you pick is pretty much arbitrary, and then your just asking yourself questions like "is this other outcome a little bit better or a lot better". Even a question like "is this twice as good?" is really hard to judge. To start with just trust your intuition, play some games, and then adjust until you are happy with your results.
    Happy Birthday!

    Mostly when I'm lurking on people's profiles and notice its their birthday -- happens more often then you'd think
    Hipmonlee

    Yeah, I just checked, turns out there's quite a lot of people with birthdays today! Well, thanks again!
    Isn't this your first badge in like a decade hahaha

    technically no! I got my tiering contrib alumn only recently! But that was my first badge in like a decade.
    surprised you didn’t have this sooner tbh
    gz, much deserved

    Yeah, this badge didnt used to exist... Otherwise I probably woulda given it to myself immediately!
    I really appreciated your latest post in the RBY thread. I do monte carlos for a living and recently had a consultant ask me that same question. My answer was basically the same. It's easier to run 500 simulations than analyze a multiple feedback circuit by hand and sorting through the Laplace. Let the bell curves speak for themselves, to hell with differential equations and stochastics.

    This has been my approach to basically everything statistics for such a long time now, I kinda forget that you can just do the maths sometimes...
    Yo, I'm just some random who wants to say that I disagree with your premise in this post that the hax factor is more impactful in good vs bad or great vs bad than in great vs good. I believe the rng plays a stronger role in determining the results of a match when the skill gap between two players is smaller.

    Incidentally, I'm not convinced pokemon is a game with sufficient depth to benefit from completely removing luck based variety. (these things also vary based on the metagame/generation mechanics in question) So I understand your objections to removing rby miss / recover bug.
    Hipmonlee

    So I would say, for at least gen 4 onwards, and probably gen 3 and possibly 2, that you could more or less remove all the RNG without damaging the richness of the game. For Gen 1 specifically though, is a bit too narrow.

    I think the rps in chess comes from choosing what to spend mental bandwidth on, either in calculation or preparation. Although it probably isnt really useful making the comparison.

    That makes a lot of sense, thanks for responding to me and putting up with my spam.

    Hey, do you remember me? I was around back in the day. If so, would be cool to catch up. If not, it's OK, Mr.E said he doesn't remember me either.

    I was there on Netbattle, on IRC, on forums, generally all around. I was wondering what had happened to you, Jumpman, Vineon, BH, and the gang. Is anybody else still around?
    Hipmonlee
    Hipmonlee
    Vineon has been gone a long time, BH and Jumpman I'm not sure about, I haven't been in touch with them anyway. TBH most people from back then I am not really in touch with any more.
    Duckman
    Duckman
    Oh ok. Yeah I was like 14 or something back then. Didn't even think to consider that I should keep in touch with some of the coolest people I'll ever meet. Anyway I saw in the below post that you have kids now. I do too. Crazy to think about how we all got on :). If you ever want to chat hit me up. I'm in one of those gym league discords, not sure if you ever heard of them, it's pretty chill, we could talk there.

    Hey, just to let you know that something has come up and Sunday morning is almost certainly not gonna work for me now. I will let you know as soon as I figure out when I'll be available. It shouldnt be a problem, we can probably do that time pretty much any day after Sunday, but I am not sure yet.
