No doubloons spent yet in any of my worlds, haven't seen any real opportune wheels yet. I have seen the WW quite a bit in my main though
you should have 10 times that. Im in tommorrow and Mine doesnt move downward because I have so much supplies.This is good advice for pretty much anything. I currently have 5,6 million Supplies in my main city (I moved to the Modern Era a while ago). Although this is enough to get me through any quest that requires paying Supplies, even I feel that that is too little for my age.
*(Sweating heavily)*1st ship upgrade: 15 tries
2nd ship upgrade: 12 tries
3rd ship upgrade: 26 tries (yes I actually cleaned out the entire damn wheel and the rest was junk)
Now I need to get 3 upgrades with about 40 doubloons, still feasible but if this joke of RNG doesn't improve I'll most likely have to wait to get them from the antiques dealer...if they sell them...
Edit: And all those compasses yielded a net of -5 (26 for 47 points)...ah geez
It took me awhile to figure out what you meant by "-5 (26 for 47 points)", but I think I've got it.Edit: And all those compasses yielded a net of -5 (26 for 47 points)...ah geez
I don't believe 2 is the right number. I think it is 1.8 (but only if the compass is truly fair, and we don't know that it is).Each doubloon used will provide 1 compass for the ship map. Each map trip is 20 spaces that your ship must move via the compass, with each compass giving you either 1, 2 or 3 spaces. So far in all my worlds, I've been averaging 10 compass spins - average of 2 spaces moving each time - to complete a trip (have ranged between 8-12 compasses depending on randomness, but average amongst all is 10 for me).
Yep... averages are just that... averages. Of course your 1.8 number assumption has the same issue my 2 number assumption does -- way to small a sample size with which to draw accurate assessment.It took me awhile to figure out what you meant by "-5 (26 for 47 points)", but I think I've got it.
You are assuming you should average 2 spaces per move. 26*2 = 52 moves. But you only moved 47. A difference of 5, so I assume that's where the -5 comes from?
You might assume 2 spaces per move based on this post:
I don't believe 2 is the right number. I think it is 1.8 (but only if the compass is truly fair, and we don't know that it is).
The math isn't all that hard. There are 5 slots. So you have a 20% chance of hitting any 1 slot.
2 slots move you 1 space. (40% chance that will happen).
2 slots move you 2 spaces. (40% chance that will happen).
1 slot gives you 3 spaces (20% chance that will happen).
So if you do 10 spins, you would expect to get (ON AVERAGE!!!) :
1 space: 4 times (40%)
2 spaces: 4 times (40%)
3 spaces: 2 times (20%)
Which works out to:
4*1 + 4*2 + 2*3 = 18 spaces for 10 spins.
Or 18/10 = 1.8 spaces per spin.
So with 26 spins, you should get 26*1.8 = 46.8 spaces. You got 47, so you are slightly ahead of the curve.
Interesting number: excluding incidents, rewards, or diamond buys, everyone that logs in every day and completes all the quests should have 100 doubloons to spend. 100 * 1.8 = 180 moves. 180 moves / 20 moves per crossing = 9. The exact number you need for level 8. Coincidence?
So anyone can get to lvl 8, right?
Well, yeah...except....bell curve? LOL.
Yeah, I know what that's like...I've been trying to get 2 sunken treasures for my tiny town... saved up 40+ doubloons and thanks to... less skilled players... refreshing the wheel I still have gotten none. I may just start waiting for the winter event to get sleigh builders
So if you refresh the wheel you are less skilled????I've been trying to get 2 sunken treasures for my tiny town... saved up 40+ doubloons and thanks to... less skilled players... refreshing the wheel I still have gotten none. I may just start waiting for the winter event to get sleigh builders
