My ELO deck. I've always had a question, how come theres a higher chance you can get both clan bonuses than the 3-1 split? I can't wrap my head around it lol. I suppose theres a challenge for you good-with-numbers people. Possibly someone can explain it to me?
There are 70 possible deck combinations (8 choose 4). to get both bonuses, you first need two from one clan, which there are 6 possible ways to do (4 choose 2). same goes for the second, 6 ways. so, 6*6, there are 36 ways out of 70 to get both bonuses. 36/70 rounds to 50.4% chance, which is why there is a slightly higher chance.
not sure if that helps. thats the math behind it but it doesn't really explain why. its just the way it works out.
