Has anyone ever done this before? It may not give us anything useful, but I’m curious. I happen to be a math teacher and this stuff interests me haha.
I would keep a spreadsheet to track this, starting with this past week with the NEXT drop. Anyone willing to share the following would be helpful:
How many packs did you rip? (If it’s not an exact number, only share if you think you’re fairly accurate)
How many OPALS did you pull?
For any OPALS share:
-VC or MT?
-single pack or box?
-guaranteed or standard? For this section, I do realize it’s not scientific, only anecdotal because I’m not sure what percentage of packs people open with VC or MT, single or box, etc.
I added mine to the speadsheet to start it out. I may be ripping more with MT for “research” purposes…
At the risk of oversimplifying it, there’s a reason we open 15, 20, 30 packs and get nothing. The odds basically indicate you’d have to open 100 packs to get 1 top card. It’s insane business practice, and we’re fools for supporting it, frankly.
Truth. The odds def aren’t static either. It might just be confirmation bias, but I totally subscribe to the idea that things like playtime (both total and recent) as well as a ton of other factors can influence an individual user’s odds.
Couple it with each pack being an independent variable, and I’ve seen some people go on some crazy ass streaks, both bad and good.
