## PFEU Globals

*Wednesday, ISO:

One of the exciting aspects of hunting in Entropia Universe is the prospect of significantly larger than average loot returns from a vanquished beastie. These significantly larger loot returns are called globals. A small proportion of PFEU Hunts get a global and have been tabulated, here, for anyone who is interested. As a continuation of the initiative, inaugerated by GillG (2013-0210-0600), we are also integrating globals from GillG's CheapA$$ hunts into the beginning of the table (at the bottom to help set events in their historical context). Although tables normally are limited in the amount of information they can present on a page, in this case, greater detail can be viewed by hovering the mouse over the related field. Enjoy!

Statistics: Beware of wookies bearing cookies

First and foremost, it is worth noting the abnormally large global which occurred during PFEU Calypso Hunt #189. Outliers, such as this, are indicative of additional modalities and, in the absence of a statistically significant sample of the modality indicated, dictate that the current statistical sample is insufficient. This, additionally, can lead to statistical paradoxes, such as Simpson's Paradox (Simpson, 1951), if not separated from data prior to comparisons being made with smaller samples. For this reason, the following analysis excludes the 291 PED global of PFEU Calyspos Hunt #189. After all, it would be unreasonable to assume, at this stage, that Arkadia would not have an equivalent outlier by the time the number of Arkadian hunts has reached 200.

Over the course of 45 hunts the PFEU saw 4 globals, on Arkadia, returning a total of 92 PED. Over the course of 203 hunts the PFEU saw 19 globals, on Calypso, returning a total of 289 PED. That's an average of one global every 11 hunts on Arkadia and Calypso alike. The average contribution, from globals, is about 2.04 PED per hunt on Arkadia compared with about 1.42 PED per hunt on Calypso. This may correspond to the effect of activity levels on localised loot contributions. This could refer, for example, to more hunters hitting at the same time thereby winning back a smaller share of the available loot pool for the time in question - just as team loot shares will decrease as the number of active team members increases. However, it remains a fact that these samples are too small to be representative and it could just as easily be the result of fractal artefacts such as the complete lack of globals in the first 67 PFEU Calypso Hunts. The odds against this occurring in a truly random system are only 6:1 and, yet, for such odds, a spectacular artefact is produced, nonetheless.

Fractals are generally comprised of complex patterns, fragments of which repeat in both time and scale. Assuming that a fractal pattern (e.g. a Julia Set) is in play, we can predict that not only will certain sequences and Markov chains repeat in time, but also in scale or, rather, across statistical modes. When the statistical sample is large enough, for example, the patterns we have seen in globals will not only recur in globals but we will also see them beginning to emerge in the population sequence of outlier globals or "HoFs". This is to say that statistical significance is not nearly as open and shut as some statisticians may like to assume. Until we encounter an outlier class which develops, with sample size, into a coherent population curve in its own right and with no further outliers emerging, it is safe to say that the sample size remains statistically insignificant. Much as we may perceive patterns in the numbers to date, they are insufficient in sample to allow viable predictions.
