Just for the sake of looking. [Pull rate musings]

Please go over the formula used to determine percentage chance to pull a 5*.  My buddy is 0-21 tries for Star-Lord Awesome Mix 2, and I am 0-34.  So just for the sake of argument 0-55 seems like pretty **** odds.

    on the other hand...I have an Alliance mate who got 3 Star Lord Covers in 6 Pulls (all Green, though)

    which is to say probably just bad luck

    Chance to not get Star-Lord in 21 pulls: about 10%.

    Chance to not get Star-Lord in 21 pulls: about 2%.

    Truly bad luck on your part. RNG blows sometimes. Someone will end up with the short straw after all.

    (You'd probably have been better off saving all that CP until Star-Lord enters the regular token pool by the way).

    It's worse than "truly bad" it's tinykitty pathetic, and is worth looking into on the server side.

    A combined 0-55 between two players has about the same odds as a two headed coin coming up tails.

    Somewhat higher, actually, which is all the difference in the world.

    I've pulled one token and got 1 starlord.

    I'm 0 for 4, while an alliance member is 3 for 3 (all Yellow)

    @MpqTron- That's the same odds as opening 21 tokens without getting a Star-Lord!
