'Currently collecting data for the Vault weekend Fri 11 Sept 2020 - Sun 13 Sept 2020.'
I’m not sure if there is an established researching base like TheSilphRoad for Pokemon Go.
If there is, I’d like to join.
If there isn’t, anyone interested?
I think I saw a post from Redi dated a few years go collecting data for gnome appearance.
Do you think you can help me systematically collect:
- # of battles done (that can spawn gnomes)
- # of gnomes encountered
- # of keys received
Over the whole weekend?
Even if you don’t record battles, just the latter 2 will be useful to work out key:gnome ratio. The simple way is to not use vault keys during the event - take note of starting number of keys. At the end of the event, just send me - # of keys (#normal, #epic) gained, and the final gnome tracker count, e.g. “4/30” (a total of 5+10+15+20+25+4 gnomes). If you have claimed the tracker keys, make sure to subtract them.
If I find myself playing without access to record accurately, I just omit that play session.
I find that it helps me track my games by simply recording my starting and end trophy counts, e.g. if Phoenicia Lv5 explores, divide difference by 2 for battle count. I have a small sheet of paper where I write down the key and 7 types of gnomes (even if you track just total gnomes, that’d be appreciated), then mark off tally counters 卌 卌 as I play. You might find it easier to tally battles the same way.

Or reply to this post on the forum.
Raw data collected can be found here: Google Doc
On the face of it, unhappy people may be more inclined towards submitting after the fact, skewing the results.
