Probability Lesson: 2 Twin Linked Insanity

Post  Lore Weaver on Sun Jul 31, 2011 1:02 pm

The probability of a Broadside hitting it's target (BS 3, Twin Linked) is 75%.

The first shot has a 50% chance of hitting, if you fail, you get a 50% retry.

What's the probability of hitting with your broadside if your first attempt misses?

If broadsides and ironclads in Droppods trying to hit with Meltas ever hit their target, the world would explode. I seriously have had my Dreadnoughts with meltas outta a pod miss EVERY GODDAMN TIME.

@Lore Weaver - I agree to that.

@Paz - But Broadside railguns do always hit since they are generally BS 5 twin-linked with no cover save thx to their marker lights.

How many pathfinders and marker drones does a dude take? :-)

Dear Canadin,

I was being Facetious. I'm sure there are plenty of ways to increase your odds of hitting with one-off units. But that wasn't the point.

You are fired from the internet.

Sincerely, Pascal.

@Paz - Take Vulcan he increases your chance of dropping out of a pod and killing something by 1000% I never fail at killing Bjorn the Fell Handed I'm currently at a perfect record of 1 Melta shot from out of melta range to exactly 1 Bjorn the Fell Handed being removed as a casualty.

1/1, just ask Mike.
