Postby Iamtoe » Wed Feb 13, 2019 2:14 am

It has been about 15 games and I still haven't gotten exe once. Anyone else having similar issues?

Have you quipped the scroll?
Which gamemode did you play?
Were there any executioners in those games?

I've never used scrolls so idk how much they actually improve your chances realistically but it's always possible you're just really unlucky.

When you look at the wheel, it says that your chances of getting a non-unique role that you have a scroll on is 42%. Thus the chance of not getting that role in 15 games straight is (1-.42)^15= 2.827613 * 10^-4, or about .028%. It’s possible that OP is “.028% chance” levels of unlucky, but with odds that low it makes me raise an eyebrow.

That isn't really how scrolls work. Scrolls give you a 42% chance of getting the role IF it roles in the game.

EX: There is 9 Random Town slots, 5 random Mafia slots, and 1 NE spot. That NE could be the Witch, Jester, or Exe, so there is only a 1/3 chance of there being an Exe in that game. If there is an Exe, then you have 110 of the 250 lots for that role, so you have a 42% chance of getting it now that it is in the role list.

so with 1 NE slot it's only a 14% chance? (1/3 * 42%)
