Why are computerChoice and userChoice always equal?


#1

The following code, always returns a tie - why is this?

var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();
if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
computerChoice = "scissors";
} console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);

var compare = function (choice1, choice2){
if(choice1 === choice2){
return "The result is a tie";
}else if (choice1 === "rock") {

    if(choice2 === "scissors"){
       return "rock wins"; 
    }
    else {
        return "paper wins";
    }        
}
else if(choice1 ==="paper"){

    if(choice2 === "rock"){
        return "Paper Wins";
    }
    else {
        return "Scissors Wins";
    }
}
else if(choice1 === "scissors"){   
    if(choice2 === "rock"){
        return "Rock Wins";
    }
    else {
        return "Scissors Wins";
    }
}

}
compare(userChoice,computerChoice)

I think it was just really bad luck (5 times in a row). I tried again and it was different :slightly_smiling:
