    Mynet recently changed the special summons from 5% to 3%.  What does that mean for us?

    One of my alliance mates and I have been working on monte carlo simulator for VC summons.  You can find the source code on github here.  (Note: if you compile and run, the source currently has special summon still at 5%.  Adjust it yousrelf if you want to run it for 3%.)  It contains the known regular VC summons.  The calculator was not being with user friendliness in mind, so you may see some oddities. 


    The simulator takes a number of assumptions, some of them maybe wrong but I want to get them out there so we know what we're working with.  You can adjust the assumptions yourself before running the monte carlo.

    1) VC UR rate is 1%

    2) There is a '…

    So let's go over a history of the changes made designed to drain people…
