Story Post: Game: Card ♠ Aces and Eights ♠ vs. Matt’s 卍 Turbines of Nihilism 卍

Coming off of a loss to Sphinx, Matt’s 卍 Turbines of Nihilism 卍 are looking to prove themselves in the second Bloggsball game of the season against Card’s ♠ Aces and Eights ♠. All bloggers are fully equipped and ready for some hard hitting (particularly Colette Boulette), so let’s play ball!

As the significantly lowered leveled Turbines take the field, they look suspiciously larger than last time, which might cause an investigation into PED usage after the match. Baseline stats between the Turbines and A&E are fairly similar, providing points to both teams except for Henri Rocher’s tree trunk providing a significant bonus to his brawn. Despite this, A&E go into the match with 61.37 power to the Turbines’ 71.

52* 16* 11* 105+ 71+ 116+ 35* 126+ 8* 72+ 23* 40* 106+ (*: Card’s point, +: Matt point)

Card’s early hat trick set the precedent for the rest of the match, allowing the ♠ Aces and Eights ♠ to take the match by a very close 7-6.

I’ve calculated ♠A&E♠‘s power to be 62.37 and 卍ToN卍’ power to be 85

This blog post doesn’t contain a match.
(You can just redo it really)

Please update that calculator to the stats used in this instance of the blogger roster https://wiki.blognomic.com/index.php?title=Blogger_Roster&oldid=4195

Ah, damn. Raised a CFJ already.

Alright, lemme check, thanks for the info.

Matt’s team:
Evan: lvl: 6 penta: 4 balls: 8
Janne: lvl 9 bigger stick: +1 brawn. brains: 7 balls: 8
Dmitry: lvl 9 stick +1 lvl balls: 8 brains: 7

stat bonus
tripple balls (8*3) = 24
can only add 1 of the brains = 7
no brawn bonus
total = 31

level bonus
6 + 4 + 9 + 1 + 9
total = 29

total = 60

card’s team:
colette: 13 bat: no bonus
henri: 9 tree trunk: +5 brawn brawn:9
daniel: 10 golf: -1 level +1 to each stat brains: 6 balls: 7

stat bonus:
brains = 7
balls = 8
brawn = 14
total = 29

level bonus:
13 + 9 + 10 - 1
total = 31
total = 60

So it should’ve been a DICE120

Updated. Also added another fix (the second Brain on 卍‘s side doesn’t apply because rules.)

60.37 vs 79. Still inaccurate.

Cuddlebeam:

You forgot to count 卍‘s triple Ball strike bonus. (It’s that same kind of triple-same-stat bonus you applied to me way earlier lol)

Matt:

05-13-2017 18:23:10 UTC

Evan’s Level was 6 at match-time. A level was transferred to Colette upon the match’s completion for winning with a bat. Colette was level 13 at match-time.

Cuddlebeam:

Yes, card’s wikipage link had that info and that has been included into the latest excel sheet image posted.

Matt:

05-13-2017 18:25:55 UTC

I see that now. I hadn’t refreshed prior to hitting submit.

card:

“You forgot to count 卍‘s triple Ball strike bonus.”
It’s right here “tripple balls (8*3) = 24”

Matt:

+1 delta for ♠A&E♠ was attributed to my calculation of 9+5=15. Still trying to figure out where I went wrong w/ 卍ToN卍‘s count.

card:

05-13-2017 18:34:55 UTC

Oh I forgot the roids

card:

05-13-2017 18:35:21 UTC

9+5 = 14

Cuddlebeam:

05-13-2017 18:52:57 UTC

@Card w/3xBalls Ah, true, sorry.

Matt:

05-13-2017 18:57:56 UTC

Card, yes, that was my error. I assure you I can usually add.

Matt:

05-13-2017 19:02:43 UTC

Also, log base 2 334 (roids) ≈8.4.

When a drugged Blogger plays a game they play with X extra levels, where X is log base 2 of that Blogger’s Roids rounded up.

So, should it be +9 roids bonus?

Cuddlebeam:

05-13-2017 19:40:44 UTC

8.4 rounded up is 8 I believe

Matt:

05-13-2017 19:44:59 UTC

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rounding says “rounding up” is taking the ceiling. Math.ceil(8.4) = 9.

card:

05-14-2017 06:05:23 UTC

Yeah but anyone can edit wikipedia to say whatever.

Cuddlebeam:

05-14-2017 10:42:26 UTC

BLOGNOMIC AND THE MYSTERIES OF FIRST GRADE MATHS.

pokes:

05-15-2017 10:26:39 UTC

8.4 rounded is 8, but 8.4 rounded up is 9.

Cuddlebeam:

05-15-2017 10:31:10 UTC

Checked it, and apparently “round up” and “round half-up” are different things (I thought they were the same lol).

Yeah, it’s the “ceiling” of the number, apparently. So 9..
