Several interesting things i have noticed with random chance in this game....
the yellow triangle anomalies... the one that often gives you a free tech. Sometimes i will get 10/15 free techs in a row, sometimes i will go that many and get none. It seems to like small 'runs' either way, but not 'mixed' as you would expect? also if i save and restart the next day, that will definitely break any 'run' that was occurring. Weird eh? anyone else notice this?
defended anomalies. This also seems to have some weird things going on? For example, one game i will get 5 survey ships within the first 20 turns, another game i will go a hundred turns and get none at all! Its like it has a mood if i am going to get several or a mood i will get none?
Another weird thing is there will frequently be small 'runs' of either constructor or colony ships. I can go a hundred turns and get none, then suddenly get three in a row out of the blue! This happens allot, clearly there is something weird going on with random chance in this game? anyone else notice these things?
