Anyone else sick of this game cheating? If Telltale doesn't fix it, can we all get our money back?
I am not saying that I suck or that even the game cheats just a little, but it seems that close to every game that a character tends to win far more than they should. When it comes to showdowns, that character gets the required card that they need far more often than the probability for them to be able to do so.

I am just sick of this game going out of it's way to cheat and if it doesn't at least get fixed to "look" fair even, I am flat out done buying from Telltale games...honestly. I'm serious, it isn't just once in a while but multiple hands, often in a row of the same person flat out winning.

Side note, I wish to delete the scoretally because after seeing the game cheat, I don't really care if I am in the negatives by several hundred.

-----------------------------

Edited - I no longer care as I have achieved all the items I needed. Sure, the game is overly hard but it is beatable.

Thank you for the advice. That was a tricky one to get but I finally got it, well the bounty challenge anyway. I already had the other two fortunately.

I had to take some pretty crazy risks, even going on (not alaways all in, but risking a lot of money) sometimes with a King or Queen. I came close a few times, only to geta pair or something that ruined it, one time it happened with the river card. It took almost an entire tournament to do it, but I finally did it with this hand:

No Bud, the probabilities are equal for everyone, for all the reasons I explained. The way it's been programmed would be technically impossible to alter probabilities for any of the characters. (This is one of the reasons why there's no difficulty setting btw.)

Oh, you misunderstood me. I am not sure if it was my fault or yours but I knew that all the people had the exact same odds. I was referring to how the general basis of my games went.

At this point, I sorta agree and I'm the author. If I delete it though, others would just start it up again.

I almost have everything, I just need GlaDOS`s bounty item. Problem is, I have to first meet the bounty challenge of winning a hand with only a high card, not the easiest thing to do. Like everything else, it's something one could do on the first hand after getting the bounty or it could take 100 hands to do it. So far, I'm still trying to get it.

It`d be easy for me to accuse the game of 'cheating' in the sense that it's trying to find a really cheap way to keep me playing. However and correct me if I'm wrong, the bounty challenges are random. I just happened to get an annoying one as the last one I need. Like I said, I could get it the next hand I play or it could take me 100 more hands.

Yes, the bounty challenges are random. I never had to do "win a hand with only a high card". I got easy things like buying everyone at the table drinks in a single game, or winning 2 games back to back. Its all luck, sometimes you get the easy stuff, sometimes you get punked hard and have to win a hand with just a high card.

Honestly, my personal best on people commenting on my post. I am thinking of putting a link to this discussion on the Telltale forum itself to make sure that the creators read this.

I wrote a link to the Telltale site of this thread so maybe they will come here and comment on the game here. The link below is the post that I posted there and feel free to look. Now Telltale will at least know of this tread and I did all I can do. If they don't comments or respond to it here, it just shows how they don't care but if they do, please show respect as even a broken game takes hundreds of hours to make.

I'm not saying that this game was broken...far from it but still, please show some respect if they write here.

if you stay on their forum for any small amount of time, you'll find that they are aware of these discussions and already some similar on their board to which they give official statements.

They have been quoted at least 5 times in this thread about how the game doesn't cheat.

I know and agree with all that you said, even the part of the counter-arguments. I also saw that others were complaining on the game THERE as well but I felt it was my responsibility to show them how the many people wrote here instead of there is all. Plus, five minutes of typing would end a lot of this but I am with you though, I doubt anything would be resolved other than flat out letting the game buyers CHEAT to win or by flat out giving them the items they want to win.

But when it comes to what THEY say, I am with you. I just think that it would be better out of their mouths instead though.

Are you serious? Are you really complaining about an AI poker game? Every hand is calculated before dealing the cards, and that's ♥♥♥♥ing you off? Do us a favor and bite on a bullet.
