The polls show that 61% of top tier Warlighters prefer straight round to weighted random, and here's why @MoD:

WE DONT WANT TO GET BEATEN BECAUSE SOME NEWB GOT LUCKY

You don't lose because "some newb got lucky" in most cases. In the long run, over a larger sample than one game, it all evens out; gotta love statistics.

Wait, hang on. Where did you get this "top tier" statistic?

So surely you would prefer WR?

Yup, just takes a very very large sample. 0% WR, on the other hand, doesn't. 0% WR, combined with ME instead of MME makes a better template imo; and no need to play hundreds of games to get an accurate rating on a 99% luck template.

When your at -5.1 cumulative luck and your opponent is at 3.9 by turn 4 I say luck has a pretty big role in it.
Looking at an individual game, this might happen, though evening out is something that is always to be expected. Again, larger sample, more accurate rating with a more enjoyable template.

If it's the difference between you missing your first bonus and them getting theirs it's basic game as long as they don't play absolutely awful.
A first turn 3-bonus with 2 picks is an 80% chance. You know what you sign up for by going for it. It's a matter of risk analysis. You ask yourself "is it worth to go for a 3v2 here". And yes, in 20% of the cases, you fail that ftb. You knew that beforehand.

I got sick of MME SR so quickly because it removed an entire dimension of the game from the standard strategic template. It's a very big step up from Clan League for 3 WR templates instead of 2 like in CL7 because WR has to be more standardised and not into some obscure, niche setting like LD or MA. Risk management is important and if you don't understand it then you can win games without understanding a full dimension of this game.

Cool, it evens out so luck can't push me below 50% wins in the long run :)

Given a long enough run, your plays will make your rates converge to something below 50%, not your luck :)
