    So let me get this straight...
    You think that giving us meaningless %chance numbers is working as intended ?

    I think statistically speaking the OP may be exaggerated a bit. Or people don't understand how statistics work. Or the feature is not working as intended.

    But it's probably a rush to judgement to say it's not working as intended.

    This kind of stuff always eats at me too. After so much work, we expect to see good results in a gaming session within the chances stated. But remember that the math is describing a probability (not guarantee) of the event occurring across a representative data set (number of tries). Eight tries might not be representative enough to prove your case. You may have just been very unlucky in your 'dice rolls' in a tiny data set, something that evens out with many more tries.

    I can understand the whole 'gear gamble' thing, but you'd think they'd allow at least 1 'safe' upgrade...the amount of times I've seen something blow up on 95% is very disheartening.
