Thread: The wheel of rigged fortune.

  1. #1

    The wheel of rigged fortune.

    Its funny really how everything is rigged in this game to Evonys favour. Take the wheel for example. there can be only one treasure chest on the wheel but day in and day out it always land on it. And surprise. That chest seems to always be placed near gems..

    Evony, if you want to rig this game, please try not to be as obvious about it. Some variations can be good. there are always other low value stuff you can give us...

    Thanks

    Honestly, I get doubles a lot but I still end up with crappy things.

    So . . . if it's rigged, then how did I win 100 gems and then a week later get a 1,000 gems without ever paying a cent to the game?
    The wheel isn't rigged, people just whine about it because they don't spin well on it.

    It means that they don't get lucky when they try for prizes.

    One of my alliance mates won 1000 gems tonite. Is this a new prize, or was I just not paying attention?

    so by what your saying is, once in a blue moon I get less that 7 chest on the wheel each time
    at the moment of spin and 98 % of my spins are chest of no great denomination or junior influence...yeah that sure sounds like luck to me....

    oh...and I tried that 10 spin idea, that does not work; those that say that it does must be getting
    a special deal from Ucool for advertising it.

    If you've got the gems to piss away, the wheel is a good a way to waste them as anything. But expecting anything beyond the joy of watching your gems swirling down a toilet is silly.

    Ucool may or may not be a technically proficient company, but they are brilliant at finding new ways of putting PT Barnum's famous aphorism into play.

    DragonsHeart,
    I never said that it happened as often as it could, but you should consider the number of players here, compared to the number of players who get the gem rewards. It's a very small percentage, and yes, we do get lucky. I suppose there is a possibility that paying increases your chances, but I also know that it isn't NECESSARY to pay in order to get the gems. I've gotten plenty of crap stuff from the wheel as well, everyone gets chests and soul gems and scrolls, but a small percentage of us do sometimes score big prizes.
    So, contrary to what you believe, luck DOES have an effect on what you get on the wheel. It's a lot like when you open one of the lottery chests, it just gets your hopes up more by giving you an idea of what you might be able to get beforehand.

    ok, your points are taken, but as you see here 97% of the time image (A) is before spin and (B) is after spin, those black
    circles indicate those have never been landed on, I just don't believe luck has anything to do with it. jmho

    It's no more 'rigged' than a slot machine in a casino. It's designed to NOT pay out more than it brings in.

    If you're spinning for free (and it's all those free spins that keep the useful payout percentage VERY low), you can't complain if you never get anything worthwhile.

    And if you're foolish enough to PAY for spins in a game of (very bad) chance, you still can't complain.

    It's gambling. Pure and simple gambling.

    so if the majority play for free seems that even though the payout maybe small it contradicts your belief

    so by what your saying if everyone played the casino as free play, they should invest for better odds...???

    You confuse "it is luck" with "same probability for every field". The first is true, the second is false. The chance to get a chest is not 98%, but it is very high - so what?

    If you play in a real lottery and you don't win the jackpot after a month, do you claim "this has nothing to do with luck"?

    Well you tell me..????? Is it "Odds" or "Luck" or "Fixing".....??

    If you look at my previous post you might understand this now.
