A friend of mine told me he once had his Pkunk resurrect 23 times.  Shocked Now I was not there to see it, but he is the trustworthy type so I believe him.

I don't. That's like winning the lottery.

I don't trust the random algorithm which I understand is used in the resurrection. I've heard so many stories of 10+ respawns in a row that the most logical conclusion would be that the random algorithm is broken.

And yet people do that all the time. Sucks to use up your "chance points" on resurrecting a fury 23 times instead of winning several million Euro, but them's the breaks.

50/50 odds are quite stupid regardless of RNG. I'm giving Pkunk 70/30 revive odds, -10% every time it comes back to life for the next mod update.

I think I like that - sound sensible.

(BTW, still think your even number only policy for ship values is daft!)

That 16 was sarcasm, sorry for that.

I believe my record was against Shiver in some match, no idea how much it was. Around 8 or so?

I think Angus's friend has the highest number. I don't keep count in my games. I'm sure I've broken 10 but never 20.

A different record: My Arilou once telefragged on its third teleport. Tomsik's has allegedly died on its first -- wasn't there to see it, but I've used Arilou a lot myself and have no doubt in my mind that a Skiff could screw over its pilot so completely. Friggin' Skiffs.

When those people are taken from a large pool, like Europe, then it happens all the time. But it's common that people play the lottery their entire lives and never win once.

Huh. I've never telefragged with an Arilou, even when obsessively smashing the teleport button.

Here’s a challenge for someone: find out the odds of teleporting into a planet on your first attempt.

Maybe, I must not have been paying attention. Maybe Yetiers can help us out instead!

While Yeti loves statistics, he won't be of much help here since he's been MIA for almost two weeks.
