    Why on earth did I go to Arkadia

    After 5 successful mining runs and great hunting loot I decided I wanted a change of scenery from Calypso. After 200 peds in the hole I am convinced they should rename this planet NRF TTlandia.

    My returns had been so amazing on Calypso the past month I just figured it was the new norm and is it just me or are people selling aud's like crazy.

    People sell AUDs all the time. There's a lot of people mining in UG, it is mostly over-farmed if you ask me.

    Other than yesterday, I never really had problems with NRFs in the last 3 weeks.

    My guess is this loot 2.0 is being used as a quick money making scheme by that particular planet partner. Whose going to notice ark have rigged it to extract more peds from players? and they have the perfect scapegoat to blame it on i.e. loot 2.0

    They don't have any control over the loot just as any other planet partner. Losing money into the system doesn't even go to the planet partner. Least have an understanding of how the system works before going into anti-Arkadia mode.

    Had you stayed on Caly and your luck had taken a turn for the worse, you would have just assumed it was the usual 'what MA giveth, MA also taketh away'. After all, if loot was good all the time not only would MA go broke and the game collapse, but we would no longer recognise it as a good run, but consider it the norm.

    So because your luck turned, as is absolutely usual in this game, you blame the change of planets.

    or...consider this... did your luck change...
    or did you mine exactly the same on Ark as on Caly ? Mining in a new are can present different challenges. Mining in Ark UG is more similar to FOMA or Hell than to any planetside mining. Please note I am not saying you did or did not realise the difference, simply asking if that was considered ?

    I have had good luck and bad both hunting, mining and crafting on pretty much every planet, it is normal game mechanics, and most certainly not the fault of any planet partner since all loot pools are controlled by MA.
    The PP has at most the ability to ask MA to look at any apparent imbalance and seek correction. Since 2.0 MA has been on summer vacation, so I guess even that is unlikely

    My mining returns on Ark have been poor this month with poor HR and only 3 small globals and an equally small 155 ped HOF. Don't know if its just me going through a bad patch or more general, but just have to keep going, the bad patch will end sooner or later.

    I'm Human, we've not conquered any planets yet, so we just kick the crap out of each other - Farscape.

    There is plenty of items or parameters a planet partner can control e.g. planet specific exact items in loot and their frequency. I think it's fairly logical that a planet partner has to have basic control of some things otherwise they cannot function.

    The full extent of what they can and cannot control we obviously don't know. At least have a basic understanding of logic before you blindly keep promoting arkadia. Use your intellect and question things rather than always being a "slave" unless of course your vested interests are such that they don't allow for such freedom of thought or purpose.

    It's not anti-arkadia mode to question purpose and motives. It's rational and possibly pro-arkadia as it may lead to a better planet partner and also increase our understanding. Blind "service" on other hand I don't think did anyone any good at least not that I can think of but I've been wrong before so maybe their is some purpose to blind "service" that I'm unaware of.
