Unread post Assuming Stock Settings for Stealing...
Assuming the Sysop has chosen to keep the default settings for steal/rob in the game.....

EXP / (30 * %StealFactor)
(3 / %RobFactor) * EXP
etc...

Is busting all just a matter of probability? 1/50 as long as you're over the EXP threshold? I've been playing in a couple private games and will have a string of terrible luck one day, then log on the next day to bust just once in 1K turns.

I mean, technically, my busts have probably evened out to the statistical average but I remember hearing once before that some days ports will be more likely to bust you than others. I'm curious to know if that's just an old wives tale.

1 in 50 chance, no other effects in play.

You are right , there is a probable chance of busts .. and a random factor based on time of day as well as day of week ..

Sundays you may experience greater amounts of busts as well as less busts on Wednesdays .. but be aware that time of day will also come into effect ..

Its not a wives tale , my wife knows nothing about this .. so do NOT tell her!
