Thanks everyone for helping out! Please continue to vote on the poll as it helps solidify the data!
Also, feel free to spread the info collected or hang out and throw snowballs at each other~!



Snowball Hero Achievement (CONCLUSION MADE)

It appears that everyone is coming to around 60% (+/-2% swing)

I would then definitely recommend buying 775 extra snowballs (approx. 38750 Gold) to obtain the 500 hits necessary for the Snowball Hero achievement.

If at 800 snowballs thrown you do not meet the 500 hits requirement, you will at least be within 20 hits. At which point I'd recommend using 60% again to calculate how many snowballs you need to buy.


This is the simplest equation you can use:

# Snowballs Needed = (# of Hits Needed) x 1.60


(Note: 1.6 is 160%...)




tl;dr
TO GET SNOWBALL HERO ACHIEVEMENT BUY MINIMUM 775 SNOWBALLS AND THROW

60% ACCURACY AVERAGE (CONFIRMED -- SEE EDIT NOTE)
500 HITS = NEED TO BUY 775 SNOWBALLS
775 SNOWBALLS = 38750 GOLD

PLEASE POST ACCURACY = TIPS!



Switch'em Game Probabilities

So... as you all know, the Switch'em game is pretty annoying

From my own little test runs -- out of 10 games, I've reached level 10 with ease about 4 times.
That's pretty horrible odds... 40% ... but it's likely to fluctuate a tremendous amount.

Tell me how often you've gotten to level 10 out of 10 games or less!

P: Haha, that's okay -- you're still helping... your thrown/hit numbers tell me everything.

It pretty much looks like everyones averaging around 60%... but who knows P:

Hehe, yeah -- see if it were 500 snowballs thrown it'd be way too easy and the (assumed) goldsink idea Gaia has wouldn't work as well

XD No worries -- you've thrown 500 already, just buy 300 more! XD

It shows mine -- not everyone elses'

I'm assuming 60% is going to be the average overall for the entire community... but I'm trying to see if that's a solid assumption by getting more data.
