After going immortal and re-registering i cam back .. at the same nome as before[nab]

Postby Zapodus II » Thu Jul 30, 2009 3:21 pm

I used a different Username (Zapodus II) and used a different email-account this time .. but i came back at the same nome as before (89S) but lucky me on the other side of the Nile.

Can this be by pure chance?
Maybe it happened because i re-registered immediatelly after I went immortal..so the engine just put me in the nome in which "just before" someone (me...) went immortal.. maybe it used some cookie-information in order to place me intentionally in the same nome .. dont know.

i thought placement (after creating a new account) is/should be more randomly?

what happenes if i delete my current account and create a new one . will I be back at the same nome, but maybe this time with my previous lux-good?

is there a way some admin can place me some more randomly else?

I think it's just coincidence

I went immortal last week, and immediately created a new account. I ended up in a completely different nome. So I think your experience, while a bit eerie, is just coincidental.

Actually the opposite would be (a little bit) eerie. Since there about 1000 nomes, the chance of ending in the same one for any given player is about 0.001, but if 1000 players all start again the chance that none of them ends in the same nome is 0.999^1000=0.37. Hence the chance that at least one of them does is 0.63, almost twice as large.

Joshofet is a math professor, he can't resist it he thinks in variables and quadratic equations.

:eek: Quatratic equations......I'm going to go hide under my bed now!!!! I'm dealing with radical expressions in fraction form right now. Just thinking about it makes my head hurt! Only 4 more weeks until I finish my associates degree in accounting and I never have to take algebra again! :D

It's rather unlikely, but still very possible especially if you were closer to the middle. Because the game populates from the middle outward.

My first account in Sabah was 5S. Second is 12N.

First account in Theoris was 2N. Second is 112S.

First account on each server was opened basically the first day server went up. Second was after first account went Immortality (and after a rest period :D ). No account deletions ever.

Odd thing is the same exact thing happened to me last Wednesday. I went Immortal and ended up in the same nome upon my return but across the river.

Yep, it happens..

I went immortal in 39N and was re-born in 38N. For my 2nd city I chose the exact same plot I had in 39N. lol
:cool:
