Honestly think about the results in your opinion (and evidently @Dust_Angel agrees with you). Does it make any sense that an epic troop would be just as likely to be crafted for the same exact cost as 3 common troops?
Luckily you aren’t the judge of this matter since bug reports aren’t supposed to be decided by a jury of your peers. The issue is either bugged in the same vein that Dungeons were. Or… The devs are knowingly misleading players on purpose and are just going to attract even more heat and loss of credibility due to it.
Clearly even if I did 100 gem dragon troops and got same results then you would still spin the data in hopes that you “won” an argument with a stranger on the Internet.
I don’t care about winning here. I do enough of that in real life on a daily basis. What I care about is the game attracting players and not scamming them.
Those are exactly the 2 I am missing as well… The devs are doing this on purpose … I have no doubt @Kafka@OminousGMan@Jeto … Please prove me wrong… PROVE… Not some double speak… Why are you guys blocking those 2 Dragons?.. I have 4 each of the others.
Someone doesnt understand randomness in real life. It’s a 1/6 chance for each color (they’ve said so), but that doesn’t mean it turns out that way every time.
Roll a die. That’s a 1 in 6 chance, just like these dragons. Do it 5 times, and it’s possible to get one 1, one 2, and three 3s. That doesnt mean the die is rigged, it means that’s what you rolled.
Flip a coin. You won’t always get heads, then tails, then heads, and so on. It will vary, sometimes you get 3 heads in a row.
If you roll a die 1000 times, you will get very close to 1/6 for each of the options. Not always though. It might come out to 0.166666666 for 2s, but 0.164 for 3s. That’s how randomness works.
There was a thread in the forums where someone was collecting data on which dragons came up. It was pretty close to 1/6, before the person got bored with it or whatever, and they stopped.
Have they actually disclosed the odds? Kafka’s reply in the other thread only stated it’s “not bugged”. It implies the dragons all have equal chance but I don’t recall them ever disclosing the actual odds or mechanics.
We had a thread several months ago asking for confirmation and never received it.
I’m of the belief that it’s simply 1/6 for each dragon, but I’m curious where they stated it. I definitely could have missed it if they did.
Can you back this up with data though? If you only look at a few people’s data (i.e. the people who are complaining) you will of course have biased results. I am by no means saying the data I gathered in the thread linked above is 100% accurate, and if you really believe the rates are skewed, then by all means gather some data. But from the 150+ data points I gathered, the results are very evenly spread.
Since you are making a positive claim, feel free to support it with ACTUAL data, i.e. sourced or collected from the game itself.
Definition, please – is it “I believe my hypothesis to be true despite a lack of literally any supporting evidence and/or hard facts to the contrary” ?
False equivalence. There’s a number of additional disclosure requirements and regulations attached to that ability, specifically to verify that the casino industry isn’t unfairly cheating people out of money.
There IS admittedly a lack of comparable, default oversight when it comes to videogame publishers, but again, if you are the one making a positive claim then you are the one who should be providing hard data to support it. My debating skills may be seriously out of practice, but I know there’s a general rule of “claims without evidence can be dismissed without evidence”.
