I thought the all-10-same heroes in ARAM is supposed to be 5%?
Well I just had 3 out of 4 games solo aram where we all got the same heroes. And in not one of them did I have fun.
It happens way too much, way too often. it feels more like 25% to me.
I don’t want it fully removed, but this should be some incredibly rare happening, like 1.25% , no more than that. So that people can actually think of it as rare & lucky, not some frequent-happening pepega.
Last season ARAM was my most played mode. Since the introduction of this mode and how frequent it is - I avoid it like hell.
So, Blizzard, I beg thee - please fix, remove or reduce the %, whatever, but can’t keep it like that - i haven’t met a single person who saw 10 same heroes and went “YAYY, WHAT FUN” - nah, all of them were like “here comes the clownfiesta or ***tfiesta” …
Someone doesn’t understand probability. Its not a statistic of “based on all my past matches, I have had 5% of my matches be all 10 same heroes matches.” Its more like “there’s a 5% chance of every match you play will be an all 10 same heroes match”
Flip a coin 100 times and tell me if your results ever differ from 50 heads tosses and 50 tails tosses despite the probability of you getting either heads or tails being 50%.
How often do you expected to roll a “21” with two six-sided/standard dice? 8.333%, so out of 100 throws you roll 21 eight times, so only 1 out of 13 rolls. We often get 4 in a row. Because probability =/= outcomes.
I play 100 games a month, so I would have roughly 1 mirror game per month, this doesn’t sound good.
I had fun in all of them (except the one where 2 teammates went afk from minute 0)
On the other hand there are plenty of matches where you get huge draft imbalance (like Auriel vs Dekard as only healer option) and those are terrible, much much worse than mirror, but it can happen in every game. And noone notices that cause people are busy blaming players skill most likely or it’s “acceptable” random. But why?
Nobody is denying that some players would be presented with mirror matches more than the quoted 5%, it’s basic probability.
What most of us are calling out is the very unlikely chance that those claiming to have had 9/10 matches be mirrors, that’s so extremely unlikely, even given random chance, and we have multiple people making variations of this claim.
“90% mirror games”, seems to be the hyperbolic sweet spot claim being made the most often, one I won’t entertain happens to even a minority of players, let alone as many who claim so here.
