    99.9999^1231200 = infinity according to google. I'm not a math major, what do I know

    100% is not 100. 100% is 1 when working with decimals. It's why when working out percentages, you multiply your base number by .XX when trying to find a percentage. It would not be 99.99999. Bear with me, I'm trying to dumb this down as best I can.

    It's 99.999% chance, Jesus Christ.

    .99999 is 99.999% of 1, or 100%. 99.99999 would be like, 10 thousand percent.

    I wouldn't normally even respond to something like this. But you're truly, disturbingly, horrifyingly, naive and or dense.. to believe otherwise.

    Something doesn't drop for half of a year. No proof of it's existence. Servers restart, and two appear within an hour? And multiple within a few hours, including my own realm?

    If you're trolling/prodding, then 2/10 for making me respond.

    If you're absolutely serious in your statement, then -5/10 as a human being, and you should probably seek counseling, or a higher education.

    Can you explain why it should be? Or are you just wasting time? I'm having fun either way.

    And voila proof I was asking for, missed if someone posted and confirmed drops since I sadly have to sleep. Not sure as to why you feel the need to in any other way actually even attempt to insult me when it would have been enough to just tell me that mounts had dropped. But I will assume you had a bad day and just wanted to vent that frustration somewere so I forgive you and wish you a more pleasant day than you had this far.

    I think they responded that way because there's still plenty of people saying it's sheer coincidence that it's NOW dropping after a restart. Not really anything against you, just the way others have been reacting.

    I fucking hate MMO-C's rules on calling out trolls - they're free to run rampant like fucking wild dogs while if you ever try to call them out, you get infracted.

    Awesome rules. At least you can try to have fun with them.

    As blatant as you're being, I'll answer in case anyone is curious.

    It's exponential, not multiplication, because each time it doesn't drop, you're multiplying the chance against itself (NOT against how many total chances there are) to find the new probability that it hasn't happened yet. You don't multiply it against how many total chances there are, because that answers absolutely nothing.

    This is all high school math knowledge and I've been out for about...8 years, so pardon my shitty explanation and probably erroneous explanation as well.

    Exist.

    If you're new to the thread and you were just generally asking, then I apologize. But after sitting through 100 official forum pages, I'm not going to have the "RNG is RNG" argument on MMO-Champion.
