23:38:31 Mar 18th 09 - Demonslayer Scientist:Fail in the greatest sense...lol | ||||

23:58:16 Mar 18th 09 - Chancellor Ademo:omg lol | ||||

23:58:16 Mar 18th 09 - Chancellor Ademo:yay for double posting.. | ||||

03:59:33 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Griffith:wow 20k Nazzies in 60 seconds | ||||

04:28:29 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Killstone:ya know if you have a really fast com and 75k nazzies you coulda killed 25k nazzies almost instantly ;) | ||||

04:40:00 Mar 19th 09 - Praetorian Wyzer:LOL Too bad I don't have the C&P from the time Epyon and I RoF'd a horde merge down to a 50K size army. | ||||

07:25:10 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:this was just bad luck - you had about 260% chance overall; I know how you felt - like losing money at a Poker Machine - 'I havent been succesfull this time - but I should be next time'. And I also know it is hard to stop it - when you really need it. | ||||

13:42:46 Mar 19th 09 - General Ezatious:how do you get 260% lol | ||||

19:21:52 Mar 19th 09 - Flame Lord Phoeinx:with a little bit of drugs anything is possible. =-P | ||||

19:52:13 Mar 19th 09 - Sir Death Proof:I have been a mage 4 times in this game, and quickly I learned that there is a losing streak involved here. Condinho was right if you get three misfires in a row, close out of the game wait a few. Log back in and it's worked for me. Now I may be superstitious, but its never failed me doing it this way. I saw a kid trying to cast freeze like seven times in a row with over 70% chance and failed SEVEN TIMES. I made him quit log out and try it again at 63% and it was successful. | ||||

19:58:22 Mar 19th 09 - Lady Santa The Green Eyed:I failed eits 7 times yesterday :( | ||||

21:07:19 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Killstone:glad meant the chances added up were 260% but thats not how you figure it out. correct my math if i did soemthing wrong but i got the average of the chances (260/6) = 43 (about) and then take the average chance and divide it by the nubmer of times tried so 43/6 = 7.16666... chance of failing on ALL the casts which is bad luck =P | ||||

21:29:00 Mar 19th 09 - Lady Santa The Green Eyed:To calculate the total chance of failing all you take the % of failing the first cast times the fail% of the second times the 3rd etc. Don't have the proper equipment for that though :( | ||||

21:47:06 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Zyrike:there is no total chance of failing, you simply have a chance each time, if chance added up, our percent of getting something good to happen to us has a millions of zeros, but chance doesnt add up or good things would happen every millisecond to us | ||||

21:55:28 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:talking about probabilities - and to make it simple if you have a 50% chance and take your chance 2 times then the probability to be succesfull is 1. Here it was 2.6. Don't know if you learn this subject at school guys - but if you dont trust me, take a diece with 6 faces (obviously) roll it 6,000 times and you shuld have about 1,000 each number. The probability of having a number in one roll is 1/6. | ||||

22:17:23 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Alatril:I agree with Death Proof - if you have a good percentage and fail 2 times in a row, log out then back in and try again...it'll may take a little time, but it's better than a loosing a sh1t load of mu's/towers. | ||||

22:19:51 Mar 19th 09 - Mr. Burninglegion:Pretty popular forum , so its safe to assume that ... everyone agrees that the engine for casting percentages is without a doubt in the need of fixing
Well good day chums .. i gtg work
-BL | ||||

22:21:10 Mar 19th 09 - Lady Santa The Green Eyed:Gladiatorul, you actually destroyed your own theory. If you have a chance of 50% and you take it twice, the chance of succeeding once is still 50%. Like with the dices. Theres a chance of 1/6 to roll a 1, so if you roll 6 times, there's still a chance of 1/6 to get one 1. The chance to get 3 1's though would be (1/6)^3 thus 1/216. | ||||

22:50:07 Mar 19th 09 - VU Admin:In theory I think a probability over 100% would mean it would affect other dimensions also :P | ||||

22:50:25 Mar 19th 09 - Duke Random:no BL, you are just a tard.... seriously... you gotta be pretty desperate to cast under 50% do you attack under that... nope.... then why the hell would you cast that low.... | ||||

22:57:31 Mar 19th 09 - Sir Roheran:chance is exactly that, chance. nothing in chance is 100% guaranteed. unless it is coded chance ;) | ||||

23:08:28 Mar 19th 09 - Flame Lord Phoeinx:lol @ the admin XD it i supposed to be magic so i think other dimensions are capable of being effected ;-P | ||||

00:38:06 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Zyrike:thank you Santa, Glad, what is your education level? | ||||

01:12:45 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:
| ||||

01:14:54 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:@Zyrike - engineering degree and a couple of postgrad studies | ||||

01:40:19 Mar 20th 09 - General Ezatious:fail | ||||

01:53:28 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:too late for me - maybe not for you | ||||

02:00:15 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:
| ||||

02:11:54 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Theophilus VII:Good Grief people! You dont ADD percentages, you multiply. Probability is what its called, not frequency. And each attack is independant of the last one, we aren't playing yatzee. | ||||

02:26:44 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:Theo - the 'end point' when you planning to cast a spell (say RF) is how many times can you get it right - and this is based on what your chance is and how many times you can affort to cast. | ||||

02:35:13 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Gladiatorul:Ah - one more thing and I am done. | ||||

02:58:02 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Theophilus VII:Im just saying that the RoF you are casting now is NOT dependant on whether or not you got it right the last time, therefore, you wouldn't have a 100% chance of getting it the second time if you failed the first time at 50% chance. You sill only have a 50% chance. | ||||

03:01:06 Mar 20th 09 - Sir Caradoc:glad., your post with the 50 and 100 percents chances going to 100 and 200 respectivly, thats not the way math works. the chances with two 50%'s is 50%. 100% *2 would not be over 100% chance of hitting, it would just hit twice with no misses. plus if you have a six sided dice, (example everyone uses), you have a 1/6 chance of rolling a 5. that chance is 1/6 EVERYTIME you roll. this is not oh i rolled a 1,2,3,4,6 already, im going to get a 5 now. no its going to be another 1/6 chance. though statisticly speaching, 1/6 times you should roll a 5 but it wont happen. go get a dice and start rolling 102 times. tell me the results. i bet you wont get 17 [1's,2's,3's,4's,5's,6;s]. I betting you will roll more like (20) 1's (5) 2's exex.
so yeah, trying to use magic always blows in this game. even with 2 64% chances, or 5 in a row like i have had, will not guarntee whatever you are casting (or fighting, thats why i farm) | ||||

03:40:51 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Theophilus VII:Yup. Caradoc has the right Idea. | ||||

03:44:52 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Burninglegion:The point is , i was desperate after the first 3 times , i was down 26K Mus and so pissed off that i contuined even with such low percentages I will state a fact im sure some of you should know already .. no computer or machine other then a living creature can create a true random percentage ... because computers cannot way odds and can not think of their own free will the whole chance thing goes out the window they are programmed with a set line of Successful and failures ... the only part of luck is catching the right chain of success and failures and i hope your smart enough to understand what i mean and not attempt to insult me with some 3rd grade knowledge .. ps. i hate you all , Lol -BL | ||||

04:13:19 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Theophilus VII:BL-, I've put up with you for Eras on end. I demand you take that bad. bahaha. | ||||

04:35:09 Mar 20th 09 - Mr. Bongs:This was my 1st era being elf and it was not to bad. I have learned alot about the race since a guide dont tell you everything but the guide i got was writin by ex lgc elf :) Im gunna try it again and see how i really like it since i got a better understanding of it!! And hey admin! Thanks for another fun era!! :) | ||||
