Theater II Betting Episode 8: With the Fishes

What am I even supposed to say here?

Ah whatever, time to mix drinks and change votes... 

Day 7 After Action Report

Well well well...I think this was well expected.
You should have expected yesterday better then, or you wouldn't have had to scrap AN-94.
I'm glad B Bed won.
Ahhhhhhhhhh shit.

Bit let down by the fact that advanced isn't fully cleared yet. 

We'll have to run it twice again and deal with those Tarantula/Manticore nodes. 

B won? Okay A, good job. You had a good run.
What do I do with my life now? I lost my Five-Seven, my scouting is ruined. AAAAAH curse you A!
The streak has ended at quintuple A.

Now that A has lost horribly, no one will expect the immediate A comeback.

Then again, people who play "hoho, A's not gonna lose, therefore me vote A" will have it be flocked again.

A streak is gone! Cue the summer event crab rave!
Add it to the list of memes Diggus has to make for us.

:crabrave::crabrave::crabrave::crabrave::crabrave::crabrave::crabrave::crabrave::crabrave::crabrave:

Hey, I just finished making this, let me have a break. 

Thank God EN didn't defy logic for once though.

If we look at the results rationally, EN's biggest bounce-back is ~10% usually, so the highest Plain of Thunder can go is about 33% based on that.

One problem is that C went neutral this time for the second day in a row, which means people will instinctively smell a C-Chair win coming.

You sure? The lower something is, the harder the bounceback. If you look at past data, A went from 24% to 44% once, after B-Bed and C-Chairers flocked to it.

There is also an instance where B went from 29% to 43% in foreign in a day. Usually it does not fluctuate that much - and even then, it was still the loser that day. 

I think that's an outlier and unlikely to happen again. People with your mindset won't bet B again, and it's not the first day EN has outsmarted themselves. 

Hey Matt, if I send you a video file that is uh...pretty large...can you do something with it?
Let me see what I can do with it.
You actually did it.
That's more than what most people who bet on theater (and lost) can say.
Wow my man, I can't believe you actually did it. Looks like the best of your phone is now sleeping wish the fishes.
Will this appease EN?
I think EN is satisfied.

Day 8 Discussion

Save your materials today folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1.

Core 1 gives almost the same number of materials and points as Easy 1, but we would have no support bonus and 72 drones maximum to send. Core 1 alone won't give enough materials to send 72 drones, so you want to carry over a bunch from the previous day to scout.

Always save your mats folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1. Core difficulty is where the most players wash out, so if you don't contribute at all to infrastructure you can maximize your own ranking percentage.

Keep your materials until the last day folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1.

Core 1 gives almost the same number of materials and points as Easy 1, but core stages scale aggressively and will filter most of EN because they don't read guides. If you don't invest in core infrastructure, you can make EN job against the harder core enemies, boosting your own rank. 

Always save your mats folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1.

Core difficulty prints points like the federal reserve prints money, but only to those who can convince the system that they actually need it. By hoarding materials and artificially suppressing your true score, you can convince the Theater system that you suffer from point income inequality, thereby boosting RNG in your favor. 

I think we found the newest meme to annoy Matt when it comes time to vote.
I am more annoyed at how many times I have to ping everyone to make them vote. It is like fighting with Canadian Geese. Something I have to do a lot of in the summer because these dang birbs have no brain.
Where can I find the old EN data again? What is that link Matt has?

If you still can't find it, I'll just link you to http://www.voteforc.org from now on. 

Wait, you haven't entered today's results yet.

Looking at foreign trends, a double B is quite common, if it is not followed by a C instead. 

I was also today years old when I learned JP followed EN perfectly for 12 days. Wew. 

Yeah, the double B is pretty likely I feel.

If not, wouldn't be the first time something unprecedented happened on EN. 

We can see that double alternating A and B was common back in Theater 1, so if that pattern holds, I'll go with B for today, then probably guess at an A victory.

C > A > A > A > A > A > B > B > A > A > ...

Have you guys seen the G11 teaser? Her Mod III is literally just giving her cans of redbull.
New collab confirmed?

There's this Super SASS Mod prediction fanart drawn by someone on DCinside too. I love it. 

Sass has grown up quite nicely from the genki girl kouhai role.

There'll be so much more fanart and fanart of SASS now, I guarantee it. 

I am usually pretty good at smelling a C win (other than Day 1, which was just a curveball).

But, on Day 17 of Theater 1, I was the only one of you clowns that actually voted C and you all were like Nahhhhhhhh. Well guess who was right, eh! 

Wait Matt, before you go off and have your adult law stuff to do, do you have the the panel standings chart on you?

OhImEn

I will gladly take a C neutral to pull me out of debt here. It's been kinda rough.

Results

Lego A is this the previous loss comeback
Duck A Save your mats today folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1. Core difficulty is where the most players wash out, so if you don't contribute at all to infrastructure you can maximize your own ranking percentage.
Maybe B Save your mats today folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1. Core difficulty is where the most players wash out, so if you don't contribute at all to infrastructure you can maximize your own ranking percentage.
Hassium B Save your mats today folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1. Core difficulty is where the most players wash out, so if you don't contribute at all to infrastructure you can maximize your own ranking percentage.
Blount B Save your mats today folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1. Core difficulty is where the most players wash out, so if you don't contribute at all to infrastructure you can maximize your own ranking percentage.
Destination B Rush B, plant bomb, scrap Five Seven. Breakup complete.
Matt A Personally, I really want to C chair, but I feel that A will win again, as other servers frequently have happen. A and B play a bit of Chicken before C can get a super creamy 96 drone win and put them all to shame
Diggus B Can I go to bed now? I mean BBed
Paragon B Save your mats today folks. When we unlock Core, all other difficulties lock and we start at Core 1. Core difficulty is where the most players wash out, so if you don't contribute at all to infrastructure you can maximize your own ranking percentage.
BLT A I have to vote somewhere I guess.
Arkeyy A Yes
Coin B ?????
Ceia MYAAAAAA The cat calls me
Duke B The dice are liking B despite the history
Kirahuang B 🅱️🦀

Closing Remarks

The Panel majority decides B, C-chair has all been abandoned today, a shock of its own. Let's see how this one plays out! Remember to save some resources for your drones in Core, because the drop in difficulty at first does hurt!

Don't be an idiot like me, and make sure you remember to do both runs, send all available drones, and send your daily CBT submission!

Don't forget to also send me your propaganda and your scouted zone and reason on Twitter (@GandKTV) or on Discord (MatthewStarbuck#0187, probably nicknamed "Vote C Fairy"). Who knows, it might just end up being featured in the panel! Check back tomorrow for Episode 9! 

Propaganda Time!
