    Keep collecting stats, and your significance will continue to grow. Unfortunately you really need to get to like 1 in a million odds before you'd have a really strong case.

    @jaelis is right.

    I nearly failed Statistics the first time I took the class.
    What are the odds of that?

    Apparently 71% of all statistical facts are made up on the spot.

    Over the long term there isn't really a difference. :) But regarding your last comment, if I understand what you're saying I think you're assuming a symmetry that doesn't exist in general. If I lose 50% in the stock market this week I need to gain 100% next week to get back to even. But the probability of losing 50% is not the same as the probability of gaining 100%.

    Why isn't it? $2 stock goes to $1 then goes back to $2, same dollar amount move. If you attempt to explain why a stock goes up or down then I must assume you are Warren Buffett incognito posting. (I might add that even he has no clue other than long term fundamentals determine value)

    Because that's what "over the long term" means (ie that everything will even out over time due to the law of large numbers). Maybe not the best way of putting it.

    Initially enjoyed the Temple of Relics. Quickly leveled it on one world, and have been awesomely rewarded several times. However, the "Improvements" made aren't improvements. If it weren't for the Guild's benefiting I wouldn't bother. More often than not the reward is another set of Attempts. That is merely expending additional units to be replaced or repaired with diamonds. If I don't get an Attempt I get yet another useless Gate of the Sun God, or Face of the Ancient, and now several One-Story-Pagodas. Unfortunately, Inno does not concern itself with inequities, only income generation.

    I've played this game since it's initial Beta, received a Silver Award, and now I am considering looking for a new game to migrate to. Inno has used Guild Expeditions, which benefits from a developed ToR, to increase income. I was "Excluded" from a guild because I cannot spend freely to the benefit of the Guild. I've been rejected upon admitting to never spending and no intention of spending money in future on GE. Such is life.

    Temple of Relics has ruined the game for some of us.

    Those have nothing to do with the Temple of Relics or Guild Expeditions.

    But these threads are a hoot.

    No matter, it does not negate the validity of my opinion. You have a blessed day.

    This week is much better than last.
    I wont do my grand total yet, because I'm not done.
    Pretty average until level 3.
    Two battles made three relics spawn.

    Yes, it's happened more than once.
    Every time I solve an encounter, I check for relics.
    I had one showing, did an encounter, then had 3.

    You sure you didn't just beat the update? the couple of times that happened I'm pretty sure (based on the speed with which I'd moved to the next battle) I just went to the next battle before the game updated so show the relic.

    I didn't think of that until you brought it up.
    If you say that, I'll be my goat farm it's true or at least, related.
    There was one relic, and I had to do one more encounter to access it.
    Fog of War had to be cleared after the checkpoint.
    I finished that one encounter for fog removal.
    Then instead of having one relic in that area, I had three.
    One battle spawned, to my eyes and time frame, two relics.

    I was getting really WORRIED for a while about the balance OF THE Relics. i was EVEN dEBaTiNG tearing down my ToR. Decided TO keep IT and have been rewarded FOR my patience.

    You see for a while I had 10 Gate of the Sun God and only 7 Face of the Ancients. I meam, c'mon!!!1! What are the odds????????? Obviously it was INNO $chming to get me to spend Diamond$ !!!!!1!!!! OMGGWTFAQBBQ!!!1!!1! lamersriggedgamers...

    Happily the last 4 Silver Relics were all Face of the Ancients so balance is restored. Thank you, INNO!
