i got the sense that my indominus (my strongest creature) wasn’t being selected for my lineup as often as it should have been, so i started counting. in the same trophy range (~2,200 to ~2,500) and with the same team, it was selected forty-eight times out of one-hundred twenty-five consecutive battles. the probability of any one creature being selected that infrequently or less out of eight creatures at random in one-hundred twenty-five consecutive battles is 0.6%. in other words, six out of one thousand one-hundred twenty-five consecutive battles will see the indominus selected for the lineup forty-eight times or less. meanwhile, my velociraptor (my weakest creature) was selected seventy-two times out of one-hundred twenty-five consecutive battles. the probability of any one creature being selected that frequently or more out of eight creatures at random in one-hundred twenty-five conseuutive battles is 3.7%.
why is the game preferentially not choosing my strongest creature and choosing my welaest creature for my lineup during team selection when team selection is supposed to be random?
(yes, i understand how probability works and i understand that what i observed, although unlikely, is within the realm of possibility, but what i observed is also below the 1% significance cutoff — it’s a significant effect and deserves an explanation.)
