# what r the odds ?

This is a discussion on what r the odds ? within the General Chat forums, part of the Knight Online (ko4life.com) category; if a boss spawns every 2-4 hours and there r 5 spots it can spawn and a person is playing ...

1. if a boss spawns every 2-4 hours and there r 5 spots it can spawn and a person is playing lets say 10 hours a day..
what r the odds that person loggs in at exactly the spot and time the boss spawns ?

if any mathematicians can figure this out for me.. i bet its a million to 1 or some shit and either these fags r the luckiest motherfuckers i ever seen or..

2. Afaik the boss spawns exactly 6 or 8 hours after it died.
My friend used to kill a boss, and 6-8 hours later (idk the exact time) he goes to the spawns and kill it again.

So lets say the boss can spawn in 5 different places, its 20% chance if he counted the time he killed it before xD
i hope u understood what i meant.. bad english =S

its not 1 time or the other.. its randomly anytime within the respawn time.. so he has 1in 5 odds picking spot to relog but that doesnt explain why at exact time even if he killed last 1

im just saying.. if i was some random turk with that good of luck to consistantly relog exactly time and place boss spawns i would move to Las Vegas <_<

4. There are 86,400 seconds in a day. If the boss spawns every 2 hours, then that makes 12 spawns a day.. thus 12 different seconds that it can spawn. The odds, therefore, would be 1/7200.. but seeing as how there are 5 diff spawns, it should be 5x less likely.. thus making it 1/36,000. If it&#39;s 4 hrs each spawn, then it&#39;d be 1/72,000. So, it&#39;s 1/36,000 - 1/72,000 odds of getting it right as you log in. GL Logging in at that time =o

p.s. my math could be completely wrong, but i think that&#39;s about right. I don&#39;t have time to average the spawn times, but that&#39;ll give u your range.

omg xD hahaha nice job

6. but there are X number of co-ordinates in say eslant and logging in at that exact co-ord would be X x 72000

7. Let&#39;s say that one second corresponds to an odd. If you played for 10 hours a day and the boss spawned every 2 hours then the chances of logging in to a boss spawn is 1/7200. This is if you know where it&#39;s going to spawn. If you were just guessing where it would spawn then multiply it by five, 1/36000.

The way to find this is 60 x 60 x 10 which represents the seconds in ten hours, 36000, x .20 which represents the 5 boss spawns. Edit the .20 to however many times it would spawn in ten hours if you choose to change the spawn time.

So Majix&#39;s math is perfect :P

8. if you log in right where the boss is and right when it spawns, after you are done killing it, go and play the lottery.

I dont see a K2 or babashopGMsuckysucky modifier

10. I dont see a K2 or babashopGMsuckysucky modifier [/b]
That only works if the guy is actually logged in :P

11. to low chances

12. fukk math, the odds suck. Can you handle that?

13. i think there some missing variables in your question...as in only a 1 particular boss or any boss at the spot ? then you would need to figure how many bosses is possible to spawn in this spot, and also the person could asssume(eslant) the boss will be 6-8 hours so in that case theres a 2 hour window frame to login..but yea need more answers

14. i just gave up on looking

15. why are you wondering this?
