I'm a relative newbie to the game, so I've been savescumming a bit. If that bothers you in regards to a single player game, save me the hate and find another thread.
Anyways, I've found that I don't really trust the odds presented. I know, I know, small sample size, statistics, I'm aware. Hence the post.
Situation: wanna get some spies in my nearest major. Odds as presented: 105 vs 1d100+20. Tough, right, but possible. 21-120 vs 105. How many tries to get 106(86),right? Still to be determined.
I haven't counted the tries yet, but it's many dozens. Bad luck? Maybe, but I noticed something curious: One number keeps popping up. I've gotten precisely 101 many times, but nothing over.
Despite the presented odds, I think this action is impossible. When you get 101 as the highest adjusted roll, 2 out of 10 tries, across many dozen tries, something hidden is at play, capping the roll. Makes me wonder what other hidden caps are present, and more importantly, why are they hidden?
