Whats all the hu-ha...so it takes a little longer to get to 1700 or beyond because of the first 20 games. In the big picture the first 20 are insignificant. I presume u reset as well to try to get to the perfect 20...take it on the chin and just enjoy the game!!

heh >>giggles

Funny, I see no complaints when they win 14 games in a row against 'the Commoners' ;)

My sentiments exactly, Mr Brett. Well said. :)

And reset.. ha! we'd be lost without Morphious...err I mean the Reset Button ;)

Oh, and just for sake of argument: The flaws cannot be found in the design... so much as in those who exploit them, philosophically speaking. :D

Sums it up right there. If youre a highly experienced/skilled player then you should lose 20 after winning a couple in a row. And if you arn't a skilled player then you probably won't ever lose 20 in one game, unless youre a 1650 player choosing to sit in a 1500. ;)

Where is the justice in that?? 17 games to get 150 points, and lose 60 in 3?? That is an absolute load of rubbish. 3 games where HW goes south and you can't call at all, and if you do, the opp has everything. Standardise the ratings for crying out loud. Let common sense prevail.
Also...a pet peeve of mine is people blaming the HW programming for their losses. Its a card game, these things happen in real life too. Anyone who blames it should first know a bit about programming itself and the code used to write HW Euchre, it does apply the 24 variables or cards quite well actually. It's math, deal with it.
