                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARUAK CITY?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, COLORIFIC, since WRATHMEN DM 
20 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  THE JOKER'S WILD turned 
their 3-2-0 turn into a 6th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
HILDA win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 3 JACKS beat D'ENDRRAH and 
D'ENDRRAH lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  REPRESENT challenged ARUAK 
CITY's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the 
new, as REPRESENT takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where 
do they get this stuff?  From ARUAK CITY's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ARUAK CITY, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  WRATHMEN DM 20 the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BULLDOGS.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ROYAL BLUSH was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, 
PAIR-O-SEVENS was challenged by KONANN CEE, who was ranked 28 points below him.  And 
sure, KONANN CEE lost alright, but gained 1 recognition for his pains.  And pains 
they may indeed be!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARUAK CITY's 
morgue.  More variety.  Gee, CHAOS CARNIVAL, ain't it past due for sending NURGLING 
Dark Arena?  What took ol' '10-9-1' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ARUAK CITY arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Khalhum's Dwarf -- Thanks for the easy practice round, Short Stuff.  I am perfectly
willing to smash cannon fodder.  Maybe I will draw you again for my las two PPs?  I
hope. -- Green With Envy, Proud Colorific

Duece -- You might have proven better off if dueces, rather than jokers, were wild.
-- Pale Face, Proud Colorific

Hey, Keisha, my princess, I see you won your fight.  Way to go!  When can we get
together for dinner?  Just thinking of you and your lovely face and those long
shapely legs, gets me down on my knees a begging.  It does. -- Pale Face, Proud
Colorific

Pale Face -- You jerk!  Get your head in the game, not on some bimbo.  Think with
your big brain, dingbat! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Hah, Mino, you Ugly Pirate!  How about MY Colorific 4-1 to your stinky Critters' 1-2?
You aren't good enough to carry my purple house slippers! -- Purple People Eater,
Proud Colorific Manager

11-10-15-17-10-10-11 ST, good damage, normal endu.  Such is MY minimal loss of Pink

                           AVOIDS, BLOODFEUDS, & CHALLENGES

                                       by Pagan

     Ever wonder how the whole challenge/avoid thing works?
     Who you fight depends on exactly how it works.  We will never know exactly how it 
works unless we can get a look at the coding for the program, but this is how I think 
it works:

The Situation:
     The system allows a warrior to make two separate challenges and two distinct 
avoids.
     Avoids are distinct in that they MUST indicate a specific team to be avoided, so 
a "double avoid" indicates a single team twice, which by default means you are 
avoiding one team.  In this case, the second avoid is a duplicate and therefore a 
waste of an avoid.
     Challenges are to specific warriors.  You have a first challenge, and then you 
have a second challenge.

The Process:
     First the computer removes all Dark Arena challengers from the list of available 
warriors.
     Second, the computer checks for WHO fights WHO by going though all TVs and 
bloodfeuds, which are 100% sure to go through except in four instances:
     1. the warrior challenged does not fight,
     2. the warrior challenged is also making a bloodfeud or TV challenge and that 
challenge has already been assigned,
     3. the warrior has already been assigned to a Dark Arena fight,
     4. that warrior has declared your team to be one of his warrior's avoids, 
reducing your challenge to 50%.
     Third, the computer assesses all the regular first-challenge warriors and assigns 
fights.  All other challenges are at 100% chance of success except in a few instances:  
warrior challenged is going to the DA, warrior challenged is involved in a previously 
assigned challenge, warrior challenged is not running this turn, or warrior challenged 
has avoided your team at 50% chance to avoid.
     Fourth, the computer assesses and assigns all secondary challenges of warriors 
not so far assigned for bloodfeuds and TVs.
     Fifth, the computer assesses and assigns all the regular second challenges.
     Sixth, the computer assigns random matchups in each available class starting with 
the highest class first.
     Seventh, the computer finds the remaining warriors that have successfully avoided 
all first and second challenges and/or who also did not get randomly assigned, AND for 
whom no more available warriors remain in their class for random pairing.  All of 
these warriors get RSI-generated warriors to fight based on their class.
     So, if I'm right and avoids reduce the chance for a challenge to 50%, then:
     In the absence of an avoid
          single challenge = 100% success
          double challenge = 100% success, then an additional 100% success
     Where an avoid is involved
          single challenge vs avoid = 50% success
          double challenge vs avoid = 75% (chance to avoid is 0.5 * 0.5 = 0.25; 1 - 
0.25 = 75% chance to succeed

     Bloodfeuds and TVs may increase the percentage chance of success above 100%, or 
they may not.  I feel that their increased ability to get through is based solely on 
the way the computer assigns challenges.  They are first, so they are most likely to 
go through.  The 100% chance for a challenge to succeed is 100% if it's a TV bloodfeud 
and you are the first one to get assigned a fight that day because you are also the 
Duelmaster.  But after that the chances start to diminish rapidly.
     The run-through for second challenges theoretically means your challenge should 
be 100% but it's not the case if you are the LAST guy the computer goes to for finding 
challenges.
     If you don't double challenge, you significantly lower your chance to get your 
challenge through.  The second challenge is not equal to the first challenge.
