Team Comp 2014 - rarity of items Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I am finding it very difficult to pilly the following toy parts:

- Cannons
- Pogo sticks
- Beanies.

I have like 18 balls of twine, 10 whale dolls and not get one of the three above.

So are there hints?

Does it matter the difficulty of the pilly route / location in ocean?

The type of ship in pilly or engagement?

The number of players on ship?

Cannons, marbles, and soldiers are the ones I'm getting the least. It's probably just random.

Did you buy any parts? I don't believe you are that unlucky to get 18 of one part and zero in 3. The worst i've been at was when i had at least 6 of everything and just 2 of whale dolls.

I've done 99 battles and my distribution is
11 plush
15 beanie
15 marbles
11 whales
12 cannon
10 twine
9 figurine
8 spyglass
8 pogostick

I'd be surprised if it wasn't an even probability of getting each part.

It should eventually all even out. Using my whale doll example, i got just 2 in my first 46ish battles (4%) which means i got 9 in my next 43ish battles.

I have done some trading of items I had, for items I don't have. But yes, essentially I have

18 balls of twine,
10 whale dolls
7 Toy soldiers
5 model spyglass
6 marbels
3 octo plush

and not received any cannon, beanie in pilly. I did receive 2 pogo sticks which i turned into toys.

Thanks for the response. Interesting on your whale doll.

I'd love to know what determines toy part rarity as well. I get marbles and cannons the most often (20 & 27), followed by beanies and twine (10 each). This is from primarily targeting green barbarians.

As a side note, everyone on the same ship gets the exact same toy part for winning the exact same battle. I think it's just pure luck whether or not you get a certain toy part.

Friend of mine reported getting a ton of cannons and not much else otherwise one day, it's probably even distribution across the ocean?
