...so I thought I got lucky with "Asylum on Earth" doff mission since all 3 traits were there, and it looked like blue or purple was guaranteed with over 40% on both, and failure was 0%...

BUT IT FAILED? How? Why? Was it a bug?

Rounding display error would be my guess. I've noticed a couple times where my total percentages would add up to 99% or 101%. So either you ran into a bug or got amazingly unlucky.

There are some missions where the orange "failure" means you get an uncommon reward, Green "success" means you get a rare reward, and blue "critical" means you get a very rare reward.


It can be confusing.

Orange (failure) was 0% that is why I am confused why it failed

Rounding error is in fact the culprit. It's on Falling Sky's list of things to look at when he has time.

The rounding error is in the display, not the actual percentages.

The datatype on the percentages is probably a long int or equivalent, which means it can store quite a few digits. So the actual percentage might be 0.04522389214% fail. There's no way its going to display that in the UI. So it rounds to the nearest (0%). But its still a 0.04522...% fail chance, so every so often it will fail.
