Doubloon probabilities

There has got to be something wrong with the probabilities on when doubloons show up.

The claim is that the lower the number underneath the doubloon, the more likely it will show up in combat.

Then why is it I can't get my Shower of Treasure, of which I have 20 and is in the #1 slot, to show up while the Mark of Marlebone, of which I have 8 and is in the #4 slot, has shown up ten times?

Something has GOT to be wrong.

I don't bother to order my doubloons anymore, I just discard the ones I don't need and wait for the ones I want to show up.

Yes, there is something wrong with the chances. Calamity PixieShade pointed this out a while ago, and I have noticed it as well. The only thing to do at the moment is discard or use the doubloons you don't want and hope for the best. Either that, or move Treasure Bath to the #4 slot.

(I would link to Calamity's thread, but I'm using a tablet at the moment and can't seem to copy links.)

Hello, Everyone , i have been experiencing the same thing but i did figure out a solution, every 3-5 battles or so, make the #1 doubloon to #2 and make it #1 again, this might help. You know how boochbeard says the game can't remember wins or loses in pvp, i think the game just has a mix up with the doubloons and can't keep track of them.

Interesting, Jack. Do you mean to fight a battle between moving the doubloon back to slot 2 or just drop it into slot 2 and then immediately shift it back to slot 1?
