limit of safety shoot?

Post by subway14 » Sat Jan 25, 2020 2:55 am

I heard that safety shoot happens in 2 situations:
1) you're not in first place after the shoot and someone else goes over 100 pts (i.e. the game ends and you're not 1st)
2) you have a very high score compared to others (e.g. you're 95 and others are around 30)

so in the 2nd case, what is the limit of how high you have to be that it becomes a safety shoot rather than a regular one?

A safety shoot happens in the following circumstance; When you moon and it makes a bot or another player win. This takes away the risk of mooning and is profitable only to the mooner. So go ahead, moon as much as you want, you will never lose by mooning.

that's not what I asked tho...

let's take a situation: I have 95 pts and the rest have like 33-35-45... if I moon it doesn't make anybody win but it's still going to be a safety shoot because otherwise I'd still be just 5 pts from losing the game while others are still quite low so for me it would be very hard to win

so the question is: what is the limit of how many points you have to have that it becomes a safety shoot rather than a regular one (assuming that the other players are very low on points)? i.e. shoot at
95 - safety
90 - safety
80 - safety?
75 - ?
70 - ?
