More Season One packs?

Postby Islands Of Ventro » Mon Apr 19, 2021 9:25 am

Am I just lucky or did the card logic change, out of 6 packs with my puppets that I'm opening, I managed to get 2 seasons 1 pack, I thought they were a 1/100 or a 1/1000 chance. Is this happening to anyone else and can somebody explain?

Wow this sign is pretty dull so here’s a couple factbook links: Frick I’m over the character limit, just go to my Factbook and look at them yourself.
In other news a wild trout went on a rampage in Ere City managing to kill three people and injuring 17 before succumbing to asphyxiation and dying, it is thought that it escaped out of a truck transporting trout nearby

That makes me wonder if and when season 3 comes out, if the odds of a season 1 pack will drop even more...

Probably, not much problynto like 1/500 and they are increased when a certain amount of season 1 cards are up for auction.

That's not how it works, the auction boost made by TCALS (Trading Cards Anti-Laundering System) only affects those specific cards at auction and not their whole season. It's the reason why these cards are often found in a pack with four normal season 2 cards and the one season 1 being auctioned, and sometimes even four season 1 and one season 2 although that's rarer.

For the odds, I am guessing either 98% S3, 1% S2, 1% S1 or 99% S3 and 0.5% S1 and S2 each.

Okay here is the math:

Out of the initial packs, 29% of them were season one packs
this means that out of 100 packs 29 of them would be season 1 packs

That means that out of 100 packs I get 29 season one packs

tell me Am I really that lucky
I think not

yes you might be that lucky or unlucky

I can confirm that s1 does not come more often then 1% of the times.

That is interesting, I know odds definitely increase of force pulling a projected card but I never know you could pull a S1 card along with S2 cards in the same pack.

Though I feel like once season 3 comes out, it will be even harder to pinpoint exact cards I wouldn’t mind adding to a collection. I feel like there should be some kind of search system for cards.

Well, I am not sure if you're aware of this but the card queries do exist. Although they are not a system embedded into the game and only work for certain things (i.e. you can't, for example, search all custom flags with a star or something because that'd require a tool to look at every user-uploaded flag and use an algorithm for that), you can search by name, badges, rarity, pretitle, region and much more - and I find the tool pretty helpful especially for large searches, such as the one I did for every card in the West Pacific so I could collect all of them.
