Is it just me or does the 40k scatter die seem weighted? Just seemed odd that templates would scatter so much with a 2-1 ratio of arrows over hits yet in games I tend not to get too many scatter results. Even when i pick up the scatter die with other dice it just seems to feel off, or is that just me?:headbutt:

No I totally agree... It probably isn't true that it's weighted but I've felt it too. I tend to scatter way more than I could ever just hit. Don't worry I know a few people that agree with you... YOU'RE NOT ALONE! lol

Sometimes you roll well sometimes you roll poorly. Besides what are you going to do? Complain to gw that the dice they make is weighted.

Im more of asking if the die may be intentionally weighted when made just seems odd that a missle launcher used by a professional soldier would scatter more than it would hit on target. since the ration on the die is 4 misses to 2 hits after all.

Every dice is inevitably weighted just a little, but this difference would be negligible.

still seems like its in favor of going all over, its why i dont use space marine and havok templates 2d6-4 means a scatter of at least 3 inches on average

Just yesterday my opponent dropped a battle cannon shot so it covered a whole squad of Chaos Marines. He scattered so far he could only get one of them. And then he rolled a one to wound.

I get what you mean. The amount of hit to scatter (on the dice) ratio I get is rather questioning. Perhaps my new marines could use more templates!

A friend of mine (an IG tread head) had an opponent want to test his GW scatter die during a tournament game recently, simply because it was hitting so often :laugh: I don't blame him - while my friend's die is standard GW, he has the uncanny ability to hit far more than the averages should allow for with them, while I tend to scatter far more than should happen.

We actually tested it with the Fantasy Scatter and Artillery dice one day. He got 6 hits, 2 minimum scatters and a moderate scatter. I rolled the same dice, 4 misfires, 3 high scatters, a moderate scatter and one solitary hit. This is why he's the tread head (and warmachine buff in Fantasy), and I'm most certainly not :laugh:

Probality is NOT fact.
If i flip a coin 100 time probability would say i get 50 head. Now try it your self...i beat you don't get exactly 50 heads. Thats why it's called Probality, it the change that it happens not that it will happen.
