A new forum record?
« on: May 13, 2009, 11:38:24 pm »

I guess there's no real way for me to prove this, but I was just witness to 9 Pkunk respawns in a row during a game of melee I just played. Can anyone beat this number?

I don't think number of respawns is that amazing. A noob could potentially defeat a whole fleet by respawning a hundred times, because it's absolutely random. Personally, I think it's rather annoying sometimes: It seems that whenever I play, I get no respawns, but my opponent always gets like 10. Sad (Of course this isn't really happening, it just seems that way.)

As the chances of resurrection are 50%, there will on average be a streak of at least 9 respawns in 1/512th of all Fury battles (that are long enough).

My record is 13 not-respawns in a row. Is that a forum record?

Holy guacamole. Why, you must've played tens of thousands of Pkunk battles! Wasn't the Fury an overpriced ship? This is madness I say.

Gekko, there is a 1 in 65536 chance of that happening.

So I find it a little hard to believe

It's not that unlikely that it happened to someone.

I had around 16, perhaps even 20 at one point, farming them using Syreen at the time at their homeworld.

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.

This sounds pretty immoral and maybe not that cost effective. Kudos for coming up with an original way of earning RUs though.
