View Full Version : Question about Swiss tournament

What is the exact chance to get an Emilio's pack?

It should be 1 in 6 if you finish the tournament, but in practice it works out to be even less than that. I've only gotten 2 Emilio packs ever and I've been eligible for dozens of them.

It should be 1 i 6. The top 2 win HotV pack and can't win the Emillio's pack.
If all other 6 players play out all 3 rounds, it becomes 1 in 6.

However in the swisses I play 1 or 2 people on average quit before the last round, so in practice the chance is higher.
Silentbobus is just an unlucky guy, but I don't think that shouldn influence the simple math that is needed here.

Or it might be indication that chance of getting emillio is tied to general whine content on forum posts.....

1 out of 6, but often one or two players will quit after the first round.

I'd say 20% on average!

I would say around 25%.
SIlentbobus is very unlucky. I've kept records and i've gotten 8 emilio packs out of 14 times I was eligible, so i think i got extremely lucky (got 4 emilios the first 5 times....)
Overall there is always at least 1 guy that quits after 1st game, and often 2 people dont go till 3rd round so it becomes close to 25%
It's one of the reasons i started playing swiss very early even at low elo :)
