There are rampant reports of 99% missions failing… I had two fail just now myself.

While it is annoying to fail a mission at 99%, it can happen, just like you can succeed at a mission with a low chance of success.

Shan, everyone in my guild and everyone I’ve talked to on Facebook had this chronically.

I NEVER PASSED A MISSION OVER 90, despite running probably 20 of them.

I had this one event ago , every shuttle with borg Queen failed ( 2 shuttles ) ...

Its just bad luck !

But it can also happen if you have a Bad wifi connection for sure

When it happens to more than 50 people who all know each other, it’s not bad luck

It is for sure ,its only a “succeed Chance”

To be honest , if you get a good success rate you wont complain ^^

A 100% pass rate of all shuttles is impossible trust me .

At highest pointages (4000 vp shuttles ) the % with event crew is only 80-90%
With none event immortalized 5/5* crew only 40- 55% ...

The best way is to figure out the best path rate and then farming transmissions by opening multiple transmissions. ...

Dude, I understand statistics. This is not something I regularly complain about.

Yes, some shuttles you would expect to come back badly.

But not Every Single 90%+ shuttle for 50+ people.  The odds for one person are astronomical, but not unreasonable with 50000 people playing. The odds were it happening to 50 are insane.


WHAT IS SO HARD ABOUT SAYING “hey, maybe there’s a bug, we should double-check our code.”?

I’m a programmer. Bugs happen. When someone tells me something ain’t working right, I don’t condescend to them and tell them they can’t get that bug, even if I’m thinking it. I go look into the code and check.

And here’s the thing: THEY JUST CHANGED HOW THIS IS CALCULATED.  When code changes and you see a problem, that should be a BIG RED FLAG.
