Blast to the Past.. and Future!

KingsIsle has released information through MMORPG about their latest expansion for Pirate101! Level 50 Pirates can expect to busy for a while, with not 1.. but TWO brand new worlds for Pirate101!  Among other new things, such as companion upgrades, new equipment, possible new skills, and brand new companions, comes new content! The first world is Marleybone, a world plagued by war. *All pictures are credited to MMORPG and KingsIsle Entertainment* Looks like Marleybone is in some serious troubles, yikes! The second world is Aquila, based heavily off of Greek and Roman Mythology. If you aren’t 50 on Pirate101 yet, get out there, as you will have a reason to be very...

Companion Probabilities

Is this really a ‘guide’, probably not. More of a tool for advance players (with some fun stuff mixed in) so it assumes you have 16+ companions. The comp # is where that companion appears in your line up (e.g. 4 is the 4th companion). Every column after it is the percent chance of that companion appearing in a battle during the period of time listed. The per battle to per month are the more useful ones, the other were just for fun. I put the ‘battles per day’ at ten as this is meant for more advance players (who tend to play alot). I will consider changing it if enough people want me to. (Notes on the math are below the chart.) Assumptions and Methods. To get the equation used I plugged the % values of companion 2 to 15 into excel and fit it with a exponential decay function (as that is the one that fits best and makes the most sense). I then used that formula to calculate the chance of other companions (#16+) appearing. Take the numbers with a grain of salt. It is the best I could do given only 14 rather imprecise (+/- 0.5%) data points so the error is rather large. Probability formula: y=(1-(1-x)^n) x=chance of appearing per battle, as a decimal from 0 to 1 n= number of battles over that period of time y= chance of appearing over the period of time, as a decimal from 0 to 1 x and y where translated into percentage after the calculations were...
