Is it a coincidence or not, or pure luck of the draw ?

    There is no wheel spinning. It is just a visual effect.

    I can guarantee you speed has nothing to do with proper coding of producing invoices - That has to be the worst excuse ever given for why someone's system doesn't function properly. The only way for the scenario to occur as you have stated it is that the data being sent is NOT sent as a package of data but rather as pieces of data thru multiple calls to the server.

    Because your guys couldn't find the "Bug", it's because it's working exactly as designed - but the design is Wrong!

    I agree with TheKingofKool.
    Speed of server has nothing to do with it.
    It is just something like placebo effect, as you really don't know which reward will it land on.

    What I've noticed is that sometimes the wheel jerks or seems to be going backwards ( an optical illusion I guess ) so obviously it's not that easy to explain after all why I'm getting more "Sunken treasures" in Arvahall then anywhere else, there seems to be a lot of variables that might cause this.

    You really don't get it don't you?

    That wheel has no influence at all on the prize you get.

    Of course, at the moment you press one of two spinning buttons, reward you will get is already set.
    Stopping the wheel doesn't do anything, just give you fake expection. You will think that stopping the wheel before it actually stops by itself actually resulted in it stopping at the reward you got, but reward you will get was actually determined at the moment you pressed "Spin" or "Refresh and spin" button.

    Only reason you can stop the wheel, is so you do not have to keep watching till the end. Still there are people that think they can stop it on the prize they want.

    Da !!

    For the one with the most pathetic story about the restaurant, all 14 Sunken Treasures where taken by stopping the wheel exactly in the prize I wanted by a simple way ( which I'm not going to say it otherwise I'll be bombarded with stupid replies ) of stopping the wheel at the right place.

    But then again it's not about the spinning wheel but how the Sunken Treasures appear on the spinning wheel, that is what this topic is about.

    I have not clicked "Stop" any time and I won 5 SoKs, 4 Royal Selection Kits, 2 Pirate Selection Kits and 1 Sunken Treasure with 25 Doubloons.
    "Stop at the right time" theory falls in water.

    It works like a dream :)

    Had 3 *****s refreshing the wheels in 3 of my worlds this morning, each with a Sunken Treasure in them, I just wanted to scream. One was in Brisgard where it was the first time I've seen one since the beginning of the quest.

    BTW the game on Houndsmoor registered the result as completing a quest to gather supplies before the wheel even started spinning. Landed on 30k supplies and needed less then that.

    The "pathetic story" was a theory as to what could effect the result when the server sends info as that would have to occur before the wheel spins. Nice to know there's a way of coding that would be able to prevent such a problem though, that'll be a great help for if the problem ever occurs again.

    You are really funny. I can see you sitting there, following that wheel like a cat following a laserpen and stopping it on the right moment, full of joy you did.

    If you do not believe me go ask Support, or maybe a mod can wake you up out of your dream. Wait, here you got your answer as well.

    Please let us know how stupid you feel now :P

    That is random.

    Da !!

    Don't bother anymore ;)
    Let him think it is not about RNG and that wheel can be stopped immediately at the prize you want :)

    Inno isn't that crazy, they surely won't let you choose reward on the first try.

    IT TOOK ME 2 SPINS TO LAND ON THE SUNKEN TREASURE.
    ( First one was out by 1 )

    I do get it sometimes on the first spin. :)

    It took me 2 spins to land on SoK too without stopping the wheel. This is my luckiest event, while yet, I didn't stop the wheel by myself at any time.

    I read your post well, I just told that you are extremely lucky, same as me, as I never won more than 3 SoKs in a single event, while I expect at least 3 more SoKs in this event, judging by my current luck :)

    OK, we aknowledge! You are a master on the wheel. You really have mastered it. Please show us ignorant fools how you do it. We desperately need to know what you know!
