First off, while Tier 1 "looks" the same as Tier 7 of the regular event, it certainly is not, it was much harder, despite many people saying it was exactly the same.

I have a question about the rewards, is tier 1 supposed to only give ONE mod? I got 2 for tier 2. Maybe because I only 1 starred it?

I was lucky enough to get 2 Gold Mods both with 5 speed on them from tier 2, then unlucky enough that both of them did not upgrade any of the 4 tries

exact same happened to me too started on 5 speed ended on 5 speed

If you mean the chance of rolling speed 4 times, 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/256

If you mean the chance of rolling 4 at least once? That would be 1 - the chance of it not rolling.

1 - (3/4 x 3/4 x 3/4 x 3/4) = 1 - 81/256 = 175/256, so around a 2 in 3 chance.

Thanks @FailingCrab , looks like you are up on math, dam I can't remember anything! Too old? Memory is bad thanks to metal poisoning (wifi is currently frying it more too...)

So you have to be

reallylucky to get speed 4 times in a row on a Gold wow. This is why I like Green, Blue and Purple mods, your odds are better (I think? and they are usually cheaper to buy...).Will be interesting to see for sure once completely clarified and live how slicing will change this

I was referring to the later btw, the chance for speed to upgrade at least once, so you have to be pretty unlucky not to get speed upgraded at least once, especially on two mods in a row (and am I understanding you right, that with a Gold mod you have a ~68% chance speed will upgrade at least once?). For a Blue Mod then, you should have a 75% chance the speed upgrades at least once correct?

Summary then:

Gold - 68% chance speed will upgrade at least once, 26% twice, 5% 3 times, and 0.39% 4 times

Purple - 70% chance speed upgrades at least once, 26% twice, 3.7% 3 times

Blue - 75% chance speed upgrades once, 25% it upgrades twice.

Is the above right, or is it an 11% chance for speed to upgrade twice on purple?

Overall this would seem to show that your odds of getting speed to upgrade twice (even once really), are the almost the same on Blue, Purple or Gold which seems strange to me, seems like it should be harder on Gold

Did I calculate anything wrong here? (probably) Thanks again and Cheers

Edit - I found this image but sill having doubts, 26% to get 2 upgrades on gold seems a little high to me.

I did a bit of digging and found that some kind soul has already done all of the work:

The golds are good because all 4 stats are already known to you at level 1. That's all. Odds of increasing are the same

each three levelsregardless of color.If speed isn't already revealed then it will never upgrade beyond the value it reveals at. The only stats which upgrade are ones you see on the mod at level 1.

A) necro

this thread and most of the information in it is outdated and no longer true. Mods 2.0 and slicing changed everything.
