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 - ?

Okay, so I have not been able to get a difinitve answer on this but by personal experience, I would say that it starts as soon as you are in the 90's. Sorry, this is the best I can do for you.

an example from today's game:

situation: 8-26-65-57

57 shoots and it's safety (if it wasn't safety then it would have been 34-52-91-57, i.e. high is 9 pts from losing and the shooter is 23 points from winning)

will see if I can get an example with lower than 65/91...

another example: 80-62-20-20 and 80 shoots

and it's not a safety shoot so result is 80-88-46-46

high is 12 pts from losing and shooter is 34 from winning

safety shoot in spot hearts today (with 400 as limit):
82-118-211-233 and 233 shoots

without safety it woulda been 232-268-361-233 so still 39 points till the end but shooter is 1 point behind low... I guess that's why it was a safety shoot, if it had put the shooter first (even by 1pt) then it would've been a regular 1? :?:

today 87-53-56-38 and 87 shoots and result is 87-79-82-64 (i.e. no safety shoot)

so at 87 it still isn't safety but 91 is (I guess 90 must be the limit then) :idea:
