    ok cool, that I understand
    would the 1ped tt shroom be deducted from your tt return, which is based on input?
    There was always a trick ubers did to get all the esis to make sure their inputs were higher so that their avg loots were above the 10.20ped or so for an esi instead of only getting that chance on a multiplier roll. If your inputs on marci never get above 1ped, youll never get a shroom unless by a multiplier.

    Technically not ubers... anyone who say even the basics of loot mechanics. The input mechanics allow it to be even more exploited.

    Why, oh why would you want to use pills, rings, scopes etc, in the Summer event?
    They don't increase your loot. They do increase your devaluation risk in game however.
    Assuming you are referring to the Solo Annihilation category...I would say one would want to use this in order to have an advantage, a chance of getting more points in the same max. 20 hrs that everyone gets...

    as stated by MA: loot is BASED ON INPUT
    most likely points are also based on INPUT
    What is your reference for the underlined bit?
    If I look at what Bertha (or rather MA) wrote I would interpret that differently:

    Solo Annihilation
    A random number of points (1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, or 5000) is automatically awarded after defeating one of the event instance mutants.

    A 20-hour event timer automates tracking of time spent in the Annihilation instances. Each participantís final event score is automatically recorded once the 20-hour requirement is reached.
    To me this says that being able to kill more mobs in the same time is an advantage ==> more DPS means higher in your Category.

    There is of course the RND that determines the points that you'll get, and I'm sure some people will be more lucky than others since no one will be able to roll the dice enough times, but I don't know if there are people around that have a way around this last "problem, without cheating that is...
    And every participant is facing this "problem" in the same way.

    I can't base my gameplay on a chance, but only on real data

    Well in events, the more looting opportunities you have, the more points you are likely to get...since the higher point values are based on chance, all you can do is increase the number of chances you get.
    Maxing FB and CD with reload and either damager enhancers or accuracy enhancers will give you more looting instances and therefore more points than someone who is not using these...unless of course they get lucky and loot 5K pointers.

    because it fits here aswell and answers your initial question, i copy my post from the other thread "Shared loot changes":

    The efficiency of the tools you use increases quality, i.e. the chance of getting something other than shraps.
    i humbly want to disagree here:
    Charlie MindArk Official 09-29-2017, 14:26
    DPP affects loot composition and critical hit/damage etc affect the DPP.
    Efficiency directly affects average TT return by 0-7%.
    Ergo:
    Efficiency controls the TT quantity of your loot. it adds 0-7% ontop of your base return (base return most likely 90%).

    and interesting for Naomi:
    DPP, (maybe insanely blown up by FB, rings, pills, et cetera) increases the quality of your loot (-share!).
    Naomi gets less shrap, more MU loot, quality of MU increases, while the 2,65 DPP guy next to you gets less MU loot in his share.

    Let me get this straight.. You are, an bonafide uber, wondering why higher dps is beneficial in a event? An event which is about killing the most, not looting the most since the points themselves are not included in TT loot?
