    Eggs from Explorers

    I'm interested in working out how many eggs an Explorer brings back.

    I have 11 explorers, and sending them out constantly, I've so far done 21 Long searches, with the following results:
    0 eggs: 11 times (52%)
    20 eggs: 3 times (14%)
    30 eggs: 7 times (33%)

    Just wondering if anyone would be able to help with their own numbers. The more the better, and I'll add them to my spreadsheet, and post the results here. It'll be interesting to see which is the most effective search.

    Short Search: 0, 5 or 10 eggs
    Medium Search: 0, 10 or 20 eggs
    Long Search: 0, 20 or 30 eggs
    Very Long: 0, 30 or 50 eggs

    Not sure it would, imyourmum...
    Assuming equal quantities:
    • A 'Long' treasure search returns an average of 16.7 eggs per 12 hours, so 33.3 eggs per day.
    • A 'Very Long' treasure search returns an average of 26.7 eggs in 24 hours.
    Of course, this is assuming that sending 3 searches returns on each of 0, 20 and 30 eggs on a long search, and returns 0, 30 and 50 eggs on a very long. The percentage chances of finding each one does affect those numbers, but unless a very long search has a much higher chance of 50 eggs, then it won't be that significant.

    What about skills to increase the speed and returns of explorers? Those skills would have a greater impact on the v long searches, which could easily swing the percentages round to favour the v long searches.

    Ultimately, there are too many factors to take into account for different players, and too many unknowns, I think...

    For me is more important be here when is explore back, than sending explorer on same search every time. combinations of all search is best
    Same here.
    25/11-14 , 23/02-16 .. The end is coming and it will look like this .

    I have 18 Explorers: 15 Fast, 3 Slow.
    Of the 15 fast ones, 6 are fully upgraded (21/21).

    I have noticed:
    Fully Upgraded Explorers: 100% Return since event started on Very Long searches
    Non-Upgraded Fast Explorers: 50% Return since event started on Very Long searches
    Slow Explorers: Insufficient data (event just started!)

    This seems roughly consistent throughout the guild. It appears being fully (not partially) upgraded gives you a higher (100%?) chance of a drop. Hopefully intentional and BB doesn't adjust this ^.^;

    (Either that, or I'm just extremely lucky so far).

    On long searches i'm seeing about 33% of my explorers return with eggs, yeilding about 13 eggs per search.
    When it comes to Gene pools and shallow ends they can be found at the bar drinking pina colada's
