Order Pad is rigged!

Recommended Posts

Statistically, a coin flip is supposed to give you a 50/50 chance of getting heads. When one uses this card, as I have in multiple matches, one almost always gets tails. The ratio seems to float around 1/10 to 2/10, where for every 1.5 heads you flip, you flip ten tails. Worthless card if you ask me.

Observation bias and a low sample size. Now that's how you do statistics!

The 2,3,4th and 5th post say everything that need to be said my friend (Especially that 3rd post-my sides hurt from laughter!).  I have seen many people use order pad since it came out and the results vary. Some were hitting every flip-others just flipped out of luck. Coin flips have always been tricky in pokemon-which is why I try to stay away from it myself and just aim for hard-hitting action (Like fire and fighting decks)

 

Best of Luck to anyone using a coin-flipping deck.

This really isn't meant to rub it in, but I did a little RNG experiment with Order Pad to confirm its behavior. I'm going to update my own RNG Experiment thread actually, since I want to add this and I want to do some adjustments to the math I used on my original experiment, but I'll drop you the summary here. This is really just for your peace of mind, since this shows very clearly that Order Pad isn't rigged.

The TL;DR of the experiment is that I played 10 games in the VS Ladder where I used Order Pad 10 times in each game, for a total of 100 coin flips. I used Junk Hunt and Resource Management to recycle the Order Pads.

[Game 1]

  • Heads: 4
  • Tails: 6

[Game 2]

  • Heads: 6
  • Tails: 4

[Game 3]

  • Heads: 5
  • Tails: 5

[Game 4]

  • Heads: 4
  • Tails: 6

[Game 5]

  • Heads: 5
  • Tails: 5

[Game 6]

  • Heads: 4
  • Tails: 6

[Game 七*]

  • Heads: 5
  • Tails: 5

[Game 8]

  • Heads: 6
  • Tails: 4

[Game 9]

  • Heads: 7
  • Tails: 3

[Game 10]

  • Heads: 3
  • Tails: 7

Total Count:

  • Heads: 49
  • Tails: 51


 

The final result for the number of heads out of 100 coins flips is 49 ±1 for a confidence interval of 95%. This result adds up since the true average is of 50 (49 +1). Each of the individual sets of 10 coin flips also fall within their respective margins of error for a confidence interval of over 90%. I'll write the details of the math on the other thread when I get around to updating it (http://forums.pokemontcg.com/topic/50987-rng-experiment-attack-coinflips/).

 

*Translator's Note: 七 means 7. The censor is being absolutely ridiculous again and it's not letting me put the words "Game" and "7" together.

 



Lastly, I want to reiterate that I'm not out to get you or anything. I've had such issues with other people in the past where they think I'm harassing for the lulz or something since I appeared on several of their topics correcting them on several things. And, as funny as it was to watch them make clowns out of themselves, I think you deserve a little better. Despite your mistakes, you still seem like a nice person regardless. Please just take this at face value and try to see it as a lesson with good intentions behind it. Edited by Sakura150612

(Snarky voice:) Gosh, talk about rigging your ELO. Jeez, Sakura, do the ladder the right way. Don't think I don't see right past your sorry excuses. Besides, order pad is clearly messed up. I played three thousands games yesterday, and do you know how many heads I flipped with it? Wanna guess? Seven! What kind of ratio is 7/3000?!? And don't try to pawn off your statistics on me- I have a decree in Statisteontologisosophy from Oxford University. I'd show my diploma, but I don't feel like hacking the forums today. Also- 七 happens to be a hate symbol from Costa Rica. They have a lot of raycism there against the invading Canadians. You wouldn't want to be a hatecist, would you? And one more thing- 10 is a very suspicious number of games. A random system doesn't like big round numbers like that- it only makes sense if you made it up. And what kind of person makes up a 10? Someone who's only a nine- a nein- and that's GERMAN!!! You know about GERMANY, don't you?! It's GERManY! You're spreading DISEASE! I can FEEL my LUNGS COLLAPSING! Augh! Can't breathe! Can't- can- huh, huh- ca- can't- breeeeathe....

 

My apologies to the OP. :P  All in jest, all in jest.

 

And I suppose I should apologize to Sakura, too. XD

I apologize to you too! (For liking your post!  :P) Nice job on actually making A REAL STATISTICAL CHART! (With real results). Now with those kind of results/studying-that is information I can trust! :D
