Re: Gun Drone's BS
the first role has a chance of 2/6 which is 33.333333%, and then of the remaining 66.666666666% u have another 1/3 chance of getting a hit. *so 66.66666666666% x 33.33333333%, which is 22.222222222%. *then u add the 2 together and u have 55.5555555555% *and that is your chance of hitting with the drones guns. *ok now i hope your still with me on this cause im getting alittle confused myself. *so im giving this my best shot.
bs 1 has a 1/6 chance of hitting or 16.666666% * * * * * * *bs 1 twinlinked adds 13.88888% so it has a 30.55555555% chance bs 2 has a 2/6 chance or 33.333333% * * * * * * * * * * * * * bs 2 twinlinked adds 22.222222% so it has a 55.55555555% chance bs 3 has a 3/6 chance or 50% * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * bs 3 twinlinked adds 25% so it has a 75% chance bs 4 has a 4/6 or 66.6666666% * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *bs 4 twinlinked adds 22.2222222222% so it has a 88.8888% chance bs 5 and up has a 5/6 chance or 83.333333% * * * * * * * * bs 5 twinlinked adds 13.888888888% so it has a 97.22222% chance hey i think i did all that right please tell me if i did anything wrong. *

Good maths, bang on after having scanned your results, there is a sticky on this somewhere actually for reference mentioned by [maCe] earlier on in this thread!

this is why i HATE math, namely the Statistics hard maths: 2 in 6 twice is NOT 4 in 6. 2 in 6 twice is 2 in 6...... twice. period. :

Re: Gun Drone's BS
Ok, as always the best way of resolving a statistics question is to see what actually happens... thanks for clarifying that.
I have always had problems with statistics. Not in that they're hard to do (though they are) but that they are hard to understand. That's the way I do math. I can't memorize the way it works and keep doing that, I have to understand the logic behind why it works that way. And with statistics, the logic is extremely slippery. It's like a magic eye picture. Even if you are capable of seeing the things, sometimes they just don't work for you. It's like every illusion that can be viewed two ways. I've had probability discussions before, usually revolving around random number generators. I still think there's something wrong with most of them.
