Is the Food Fit for the Gods mission broken?

This may just be an exceptional string of bad luck, but I've been sending out the Food Fit for the Gods missions from the Ferengi Traditionalists since yesterday evening and it fails every single time (every time it displayed an 86% or 87% success rate). Is this happening to others or is it just me? I don't know how many times exactly I've used that mission, but it's the one I put the time boosts on, so it hasn't been only 2 or 3 times, must have been at least 4 or 5.

I'm not posting this in Engineering (yet) because I guess that it's probably just bad luck. But if not, I'd like to know if others are experiencing the same thing so that I can stop using that mission.

  • It's been my most consistently successful mission, but I'm sending it out at 94%. I haven't had it fail yet, like a couple of others have.
  • Further proof...of what we already know is bountiful...SKEWED RNG!!!

    I’m running it at 87% and not seeing anything unusual yet. My crew are loaded assuming AND is still broken, highest skill then lower.
    Accepted. Mark them, Galt.
  • Guess it's just bad luck then! Thank you for your replies, at least I know that I can keep using it :)

    I did take the AND issue into account, I always choose a character who has a high base for the first skill.

    Now you’ve stimulated my OCD and I’m going to start tallying wins/losses lol. Been meaning to try that at least once anyway!

    I am running shuttles with mostly 3* boosts of one type or another, and a few with higher. But I have only failed 2 missions. I don't keep track of which ones and I don't send the same crew out each time. I send whomever is there for whichever order I pull them, only making sure that I only use one event crew per shuttle. I do only run the 3 seat missions, though.

    So far, I have not used any shuttle requisition tokens. I don't think I will need to. I'm doing well right now.

    A BIG thank you to all of you advanced players who are angrily (or orherwise) sitting this event out.

    I've had way more 2/4 runs than usual this event(which should be 10% of the time given my projected success rates). I'll pay more attention to that mission specifically, but RNG feels more boken than usual.

    I’m at about 75% pass rate.
    All missions are well above 90% displayed success.

    I can’t be bothered to discuss it properly because if it’s ANDgate DB don’t care. If it’s another problem (such as a problem with the old missions being re-used), DB don’t care.

    I'm tracking my shuttles. I've sent 8 of that mission since i started tracking it, at 97% displayed.

    Success rate is at 100%

    Overall, i'm 33/35 shuttles so 94% success rate (since i started tracking, again)

    I would start tracking, I just don’t know I can muster the effort.
    I’ve failed 1 in every 4 shuttles since I first got onto 3hr missions. Never been below 91% expected.

  • More fails, more 2/4s then normal
  • This happens to me on some events. There was one event earlier this year where I sent this 3 seat shuttle, taking broken AND slots into consideration. It was 90% for projected success rate and it failed 9 times in a row. Then the same thing happened again for the Peldor Joi event, failed Open Wounds shuttle 9 times in a row, 90% projected success.

  • Since I started this, I guess I should add that the very next "Food Fit for the Gods" mission that I completed (about half an hour after writing this) did actually succeed. So it was really just bad luck.
  • You must have gotten mine because after reading this thread, my next attempt failed

    Looks like RNG transferred its hate on you :D
  • Pff, already failed 4 times on another mission with 95% success chance.

    I simply don't take seriously any % or rates of this game anymore.
  • I've had unnaturally high luck. Out of the last 12 missions I've sent out only one has failed, and a number of them have only had 60-70% chances of success.

    Wish I'd had the same luck trying to get more stars for Commando Shran. I almost skipped this epic, but I don't have honored status with the Ferengi Traditionalists so I figured it was at least worth getting 3* Apollo.

    Don't worry, this just happens to a few people. You have a shadow account. This is a special flag that DB uses to distinguish accounts that are lucky from those that aren't. Most of the people in this thread have a sun account, so they are usually blessed by the light of DB's RNG.

    You, however, are destined to walk in shade and twilight forever, because DB's sun doesn't reach that far down where your account dwells. It's just other people that take away your lucky rolls.
