I have an honest question about the duel mode: Is there any information on how the classes you are offered are determined?
Judging from my experience, I find it hard to believe it could be totally random. There are some classes I get offered nearly every time (Hunter and Druid stand out) and some that I get offered basically never (especially Shaman and Warlock).
Has anyone similar experiences? I know about variance, bias and small sample sizes, but damn, it doesn't feel random at all.
Well, I didn't take notes. But from the top of my head I'd say, I've played duels about 20-30 times, got offered Shaman about 2-3 times, Warlock about 2-4 times, Druid about 10-15 and Hunter about 15-20.
Probably I'm biased and just don't remember correctly, it just seems very odd.
The same way arena picks are chosen, its a dice roll. Not to mention that whole system of dueling is broken and stupid.
That's some strange die. And since I have mathematical background, I should know.
I don't even wanna play Duels that badly, but they're a nice way of achieving those rewards that grant xp. Well, if I could manage to play the classes I'd like to.
Ill counter that. I played around 10 duel games and 6 of them were Demon Hunter. Didnt even know (back then) that DH is op, I just wanted to lvl up that class.
The urge to call on Blizz is strong, we all know it. Just imagine what would have to happen for ur thesis to be true ? Some1 in california monitoring ur account and purposefully sticking druid into ur interface ? Different code in ur client ? :)
