    Man, you should not play lottery this Christmas...

    Now seriuosly, it's too bad results to be just terrible luck. Two weeks ago, we reviewed our logs with the random rolls. After some thousand of rolls made, all the percentiles had a balanced distribution, so the rolls are nice and the dices are not weighted. Anyway I keep my word of what I said yesterday, and we will save logs of all attacks and all results to get to the bottom of this matter. It'll take some time but I will come back here to let you know about the results.

    It doesnt happen every match now. some matches i dont get hit at all. But when the criticals and amazings come, they happen at once
    I look forward to seeing the overall stats. I've never been a huge fan of dice, maybe you can see why

    well alex today i ve launched like 10 attacks to the quest disappering explorers , 3 times we finished untouched the other 7 i went down from 2k to 40 hp, i died even once. add to that the penalty to the att that recieves the mob and... its odd im recieving so many criticals engaging barely more than 3 rounds each time. besides, i would seriosly suggest to review the money system and hire a new useful blacksmith plz, at this rate we are gonna finish lvl 40 epic classes with +1 equipment.

    regards,

    We have reviewed our records. After 200.000 attack rolls, we get a total of (very close to) 10K critical failures (5%) and other 10K critical hits (5%), near 500 (0,25%) amazing hits and 25, an EXACT 0,0125%, heroic hits. Already 2 lucky players got a supreme hits got, btw .

    These rolls are the same for monsters and players. Actually, dices are right!!! If you notice the opposite, is just a subjective perception. And don't fear about bad luck. If your amount of attack rolls goes up, the luck tends to desappear (casinos know this very well )

    Actually, since going in to play against the monsters quite a bit more than usual, I am noticing the monsters seem to get a lot of critical hits against me too. Quite often, I am the recipient of 3-4 critical hits against me per quest, not to mention amazing hits dealt out in-between. This does seem to be a much higher rate than 5% to me.

    Not only the code, the results were also analyzed; there is exactly a chance of 5% to deal/receive a critical hit, and a 5% of all attacks dealt in the game for several weeks were critical. There will be good streaks and bad streaks, but the global result will be always a 5%.

    So then I must be unlucky because I haven't gotten a single amazing hit. Based on the math and conservative guesses I should have 3.64 amazing hits. My criticals are almost spot on with the math which is 727 monsters killed and 2 hits per monster I get 72 criticals at %5 which is what I have, but I have 0 amazing hits or higher. So is my conclusion of being unlucky correct?

    Well its been a week and I have almost 1000 kills but no amazing hits. Also two of my followers have 1 but havent killed nearly as many monsters or have played as long as I have, Is some force trying to conspire against me?
