comment Are the hit percentages predetermined?
You're arguing for the sake of arguing. the engine of the game is described pretty well in the comments above. Yes 100 attempts is a small number, yet, 90% to hit still means that on enough attempts (and i dont care how much exactly is enough - 100 or 1000000), you will hit in 90% of the cases. Once they set the random number the way they do, you dont really have more than one attempt, and this turns the percentage into a meaningless number. Mayhaps it makes the game more "realistic" for some. For me, it makes it unplayable, but thats a matter of opinion and taste only. im done arguing.

@Mandemon, what you say is based on the numbers theyu show. what I said was based on my experience with the game. I think the percentage they show is a pure lie, but this goes back to the mathemtical question of what this number even means. In pure mathematical terms, a 90% chance to hit means that you will hit 90 out of 100 times. This is NOT what happens in the game, so basicly this number is meaningless. Even if to set the flag before you fire they used some advanced math to give you a "better chance", its meaningless once they've set it, which is what happens, according to the interviews.

i dont have a way to prove what im saying is true, except for maybe mailing Jake Solomon. But im not sure he will admit this is how it works, because then its really a pre-determined game and has nothing to do with our decisions as players
