HentaiSquirrel posted a topic in General DiscussionWhen talking about "RNG", "chance", "probabilities", etc., many misinterpretations are made. "That is only natural". Mistakes are made, imo, because the math regarding 'random' is different to what most people know and correctly use every day. This can lead to frustration and anger about RNG, MM, fire chance, etc. Plz, let me try to explain how to avoid this... NO WORRIES... i will not bother you with boring math. With all things "RANDOM" ... to avoid frustration may I suggest you simply try and remember that "all things random" are strange, counterintuitive, and that the 'chances' are other than they appear. If you look at them the same way you use everyday math, they seem "deceiving". You might even feel like someone is cheating on you. Actually it's more like a 'misunderstanding'. As a 'rule of thumb' what can help to avoid frustration: simply lower your expectations, e.g. when you look at the numbers. Drastically! Basically that's it. It's that simple, really : ) Oh, ... and don't get into the math if you don't need it for work, school or science. Or, of course, if you feel so inclined ; ) (I wouldn't have, but for it's too late for me - and now i have Statistics Stockholm Syndrome aaaaaaaaaaaargh ;->) More? Ok, here's a simple example (No worries, still not explaining math. Promised! For those of you who have been frustrated by statistics and numbers on probabilities: I hope you can now avoid frustration and have more fun - with the game and elsewhere. For those of you who, like me, have some understanding of stochastic, statistics and the math 'behind it': I hope you can now understand a little better how people get frustrated and angry, and be less frustrated by that and have more fun - with the game and elsewhere. For those of you who are (probably, haha) far more proficient in this field: I hope to have at least entertained you a little and not embarrassed myself to blatantly ; ) Fair seas and good hunting.
