View Full Version : Math involved in New Mission Format
09-28-2009, 10:59 AM
storm8 changed its mission format similiar to Racing live that shows you percentage of completion everytime you do one mission. My question is:
If 100% is to complete the whole mission, why I get 27% for complete one mission. Shouldn't the number be either 25%(do it 4 times), or 34%(do it 3 times), or 50%(do it 2 times). Why does storm8 has to make it so different? It doesn't affect the game play but just the math is a little un-explainable. Am I missing something here?
Anyone got insight on this? Thanx.

well, I think they want to leave it an open percentage. I actually thought I was going to complete a mission with one last push of a button because I was so close percentage wise. that was untill I pushed the button and it said 98% complete. I was livid thinking i had to use anotner 130+ health to complete 2%!!!!

LOL. exactly. From my experience so far, the percentage is between 25% to 32%. No matter what, it will take you no less than 4 times to complete. So, why the confusion unless the percentage completed associated with the rewards amount. But for that little reward, it's nothing. I lost 3 times more in one battle than the most expensive rewards I collected on a mission.

I have to agree with this, I've completed 3 campaigns and it always takes at least 4 times to complete a mission rank. Most of the time 5 times, because you will usually end up at either 90%, 96%, or 98% after your 4th victory.te amount of energy to complete some of these is ridiculous.
Another thing to consider is when you get to the missions where you need special loot to complete the missions. The loot can only be obtained in a previous mission. This would be a no brainer before the update but now They have cranked up the odds of getting those as well. So it can take up to 8 times to win the special loot, and I even have the Advanced R&D which is supposed to give you a boost to obtain loot.

Well ive done most of the missions and % ranges from 13% to 23% so it takes me 9-10 hits to complete one mission, also they did it to expend your experience points so you might have to use honor points if your in a hurry...

No, there is a declining curve. Tab 1 tends to get you around 25% per mission. Tab 6 only gets you 8% per mission. So, getting R1, R2 takes longer (and obviously more energy per mission attempt)
