Keep sending game logs; maybe there's some weird edge case where it's broken just for you. I'm not joking about that, your environment might have something weird in it.
You never know - I once had a damaged C64 that thought 2+2=5! (seriously - the ROM Basic was damaged and it was producing incorrect results for pretty much all math calculations. Needless to say it made for a few fun games where I could take advantage of it, but mostly it was a doorstop at that point...)

Have you tried verification of the integrity of local files? Or reinstalling the game?

One recent example. One Ogre MB and four SB, all eight AP. I got one D in seven shots. The AI takes over and gets five sixes and two fives, in ten shots at treads.
:Humans are notoriously bad at telling random from non-random. Get a piece of paper and log all rolls. The more the better. As you add samples, the number of 1s, 2s etc will slowly even out. Now try the same experiment with real dice. You will get the same result.

Unless they don't, which means the dice aren't balanced, or the CPU is doing bad math, which are possible outcomes of either test.

Oh, I've logged them enough times. They're coming up within what I would consider norms. Of 69 rolls, it was 13, 10, 14, 11, 10, 11. It's just that MY rolls were mainly 1, 2, and 3, and the AI rolls were mainly 4, 5, and 6 (until late in the game, when my numbers got better as I could put more and more firepower on fewer and fewer units).

Hey, we gotta complain about something, the game is too fun otherwise. I've logged something like 86 hours so far.

Static. Then a new voice. It sounded quite human. And amused.

The game is now Mac compatible?
BOUGHT!
Thanks for making it Mac compatible!

Okay veterans! If I'm using this game to learn the rules for the board game...could you please let me know if there is anything I need to be aware of? Differences between the digital and the analogue version?

I haven't gotten to look at the new update yet, but terrain destruction was mostly missing before.

It's not a very likely error type to have the dice biased towards the computer, as all players probably use the same die roller. Now, it could be making the wrong test, of course, or be deliberately cheating on the computer's behalf.
