Resource lifetime data

Post by Sobuno » Wed Jul 28, 2010 12:57 am

This post is about statistical data. If this is not in your interest, disregard the post ;)

Recently, we compiled the lifetime data, i.e. the time a resource was in spawn, for all resources that spawned in 2008, 2009 and 2010. This was done to provide statistical data for resource spawns to theorists in order to have a more educated guess as to how the resource spawning system works.

We have gathered the data in a spreadsheet, the resources being summarized by the number of days they were in spawn as well as grouped per server. If you're interested, you can get the file here: Lifetime by galaxy

Great, I had a look at the data and while it cannot be held for 100.0% certain it definitely points towards a "rectangular" distribution function, the chance is equal over all days within the given lifespan, the same as for a dice.

The residues outside the set lifetime can be viewed as a grade for how well a server is maintained, or not maintained. It also throw grovel in the statistical formulas so one has to pander for variance in the samples.

Thanks for the data Sobuno, awesome :D
