Summoning Pool for Simulated Gacha Update?

Hello everyone,

I don't know if I am just imagining this, but I am pretty sure that the simulated gacha on this site hasn't actually been updated to reflect the proper pool of servants and CEs available when summoning for specific banners. An example I can think of is that Karna or Arjuna should be in the summoning pool for any banner, but they never appear, and there are quite a few newer CEs that should also appear in general rolls but do not outside of the banner they appeared in.

So I guess this is more a question for Gamepress than for the community, but I suggest you guys update the summoning pool to better reflect the current availability in NA, just for the sake of trying to be as genuine as possible with the simulation.

I also think this encompasses changing the rate-up proportions now that NA has actually published all the rates for every single item that can be claimed on a specific banner. We always knew that rated up SSRs were 0.7%, but I think Gamepress was working under the assumption that SRs were also proportionally 70% of the SR chance (3%), which we now know is not the case (it's 50%, or 1.5% rate for a rated up SR). I think you guys need to revisit these algorithms as well, now that it has all been made transparent. I only say this because it seems like it's closer to 70% than 50% for rated up SRs on the simulated rolls as averages, but maybe not, maybe you guys already have that one right? Either way, I just wanted to point out that the simulated gacha needs updating in certain areas, so if you guys get the chance, please work on that.

Thank you!

My first point - its rng. Karna and Arjuna are in the simulator, ive rolled a karna while hitting the e pluribus banner simulator for lols. The reason you haven't pulled one is probably all down due to rng, because Karna or Arjuna each have a 0.01 chance of appearing in the story, or any other nonfocused gacha

My second point - who cares?

Your first point: It's not just RNG, I am pretty sure some of the more recent servants are not in the pools they should be. Rama is a better example, since he is of lower rarity but doesn't seem to appear in any rolls outside of the banner he was on (same with other America 4*s that should be in all later pools, though not all since some are story-locked). I think some of the pools just haven't been updated with the general pool servants beyond Christmas and London, that's what it seems to be to me after quite a bit of testing, I even noticed it with the damn 3*s, so yeah, if Geronimo not showing up after hundreds of rolls isn't definitive proof that the pools have not been updated, I don't know what is.

Your second point: It's not that important obviously, but a simulation should try and be accurate, that's all I'm saying. I would at least want it to be, just for the sake of fidelity, even if it's just a simulator. Some people may actually care about that, though I understand that it's nothing really going crazy over. I think if the proportions are not accurate to the now known rates (as I said, maybe it was initially believed rated-up 4*s were 70% like 5*s), then the accuracy of the simulator is definitely an issue.

I just wanted to bring it up in case anyone cared.
