    No hate, but how can people play games so heavily influenced by RNG (Diablo, PoE)?

    I used to play these kind of games when I was young, and recently tried playing PoE.

    How do you guys play these kind of games that are so heavily reliant on RNG and not actual skill?

    instead of fixed outcome you get data range. it changes little overall but provides more chance.

    I used to be the same as you. Honestly still kind of am. But been playing WoW for a month now and while I'll agree PvE is boring PvP is semi fun and decently skill based. Grinding sucks tho.

    I used to be into competitive CS:S, Quake, UT3, Now my main game is dota with the exception of this WoW bender i've been on.
    Are you not entertained?

    What? I don't play any games anymore, but at least FPS/Strategy games require some form of skill rather than mindlessly hitting keys and hoping good loot drops

    rpgs are about planning and building your character, tuning them for specific situations. most strategy games have the same 1 damn strategy = build up economy, crush. Or blitzkrieg, build up economy.

    Even games like total war come down to pretty much the same tactic throughout.

    fps skill? like turning your mouse and knowing to shoot 1/4" to the right and above for long distance shots?

    Honestly everything is a bit of RNG if you think about it. I used to play CS alot and sometimes you spray and get a headshot and sometime you spray in same location same gun and miss everything. It was same thing when burst fire or using AWP then you wonder did the hits register.


    Same thing goes now with league of legends....get in the game and its a coin flip on how many monkey teammates you get compared to how many monkeys will be on enemy team.

    Tfw OP isnt woke to the fact that all games are based around rng because if any game gave a consistent result to an action it would be an extremely unbalanced game

    Bro, you dont get it do you? I'm not defending any game. They're all a waste of time but i'm saying that FPS games require more skill than RPGs.

    Absolutely. Every game does pretty much, but these loot based games are pretty much completely RNG

    Because that's not how old school FPS used to work man...like in UT CTF, the maps were totally symmetrical...it was pretty much all skill. In duel, there was some RNG with spawns, but it quickly averaged out over the course of the match.

    ok so instead of better rng wins it’s first shot wins aka best internet connection. Symmetrical maps are super unbalanced too because there’s guaranteed to be one specific range with a consistent advantage so unless everyone has the same gun once again it’s basically a dice roll on who gets shot when after which spawn

    Chess is probably as close to a pure skill game as I can think of

    I play poker though, and it's got an insane amount of luck involved... but there's a huge element of skill too. Over the course of 10 hands, it's anyone's game. Over the course of a million hands, if you've got an edge, you'll be winning. I play for money though, and that's the main reason I play poker nowdays, to make money.

    Doesn't really answer your question though because you ask why people play games that have a lot of luck involved, when they could be playing a game that has a lot of skill involved... It's probably simply that they find enjoyment out of it. Like you can go be a carpenter, and craft something out of wood with precise skill, and make an object of the perfect shape that you want. But if you don't really enjoy carpentry, then why would you?

    Fun and expectation don't have to be in the same upward line, for example, someone might simply just enjoy playing Hearthstone more than Counterstrike, even though one has a much higher element of luck

    Cliffs: People can enjoy something more, even though the other options have greater skill involvement. Some people play entirely for the competition though, and they find their fun in winning. Not everyone enjoys the same things. Would you play an almost entirely skill game that you didn't enjoy playing, or play a game that had a bigger element of luck, that you loved every second of playing?

    there is a good deal of skill even in diablo if you are using different skills depending on the situation and moving your character around during the battle. as soon as it gets too easy, you just increase the difficulty

    one of the best indicators of if a game is skill based or not is if the same guys dominate it and tend to win over and over...for UT that was Gitzzz...for Quake 3 it was people like fatal1ty, cooler, rapha, etc

    Those are solo games so RNG makes it more interesting

    RNG in competitive games like MOBAS might be a different story

    the thrill you get when you enchant an item knowing full well it probably has an 80% chance of being destroyed and that you have to grind for 8+ hours a day for a whole month just to get back at that point

    but when you get it tho

    Yea I’m more for multiple ability chaining and combining team play with game knowledge than jumping around the map clicking my grenade launcher so nah. Newer games have mechanical and knowledge skill requirements that are utilized way more interestingly than arena shooters imo just kindve a dead genre without much innovation atm. Ik quake is legendary and highly regarded but outside the nostalgia I hate to tell you that it’s just worse Halo with gimmick maps like most old games
    Hm.

    if you want to get really deconstructionist about it, our whole existence isn't too far off from a game and a RNG

    just enjoy and keep clicking, boyos

    lol k

    it may be a dead genre with no innovation, but if you're arguing dota/lol is a higher skill game than idk what to tell you...
    like I said if skill is purely the determining factor, you would expect the same teams to win the vast majority of the time...that isn't the case anymore
    those games certainly take a lot of skill, but there is also a huge RNG element to it...it's not like quake where the better player might beat u without u even getting a single kill

    How do you guys play these kind of games that are so heavily reliant on RNG and not actual skill?
    Just save/reload 10,000 times til you get the results you want. I used to own in Pool of Radiance, all my characters had 18 everything, would save and load all the tough fights so I had all the best gear, then I got into duping and had everything on all my characters!
