    This is your biggest mistake, imo.
    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Detritus again.

    Correct. There is no such thing as a mob that is due to hit, only mobs with markup and those without.

    Actually the game loves you, because you're the perfect player for them.

    Like many others, you know full well that loot is based directly on the player, his deposits, and losses.
    But despite that, you keep playing endlessly, because you refuse to believe it.

    It is however simple to understand that it cannot be otherwise, cause it's exactly because of this that Entropia does not fall within the scope of the regulation of gambling, casinos, and lotteries.
    (I think MA's lawyers are pretty good)

    The game will always leave you with some good crumbs when it is sure you will let them ingame, and continue playing, and so lose them at the end anyway.
    Since you think you were so close to win this time, you will deposit again.
    The game is designed for one single thing: Make people BELIEVE, for as long as possible, and.. it works.


    So if you play for fun, that's nice.
    But if you play whith the hope of getting money, you just waste your time.
    And time is so precious, it's priceless !

    I'm a hard core slot player when I go to Reno.
    I also play alot of Keno.

    The things I hear people say and do at the machines is a hoot.
    Machine hits a nice payout...
    I should have bet max!
    No!

    Depending on the size of the wager, the action on the machine will be different.
    Bigger bet, less action.
    Smaller bets will win more often, less payout.
    By changing the bet you are basically changing the machine.
    Your bankroll will not be as volatile though.

    My numbers came up and I didn't bet.
    This one is a little more deep.
    If the person had gone and actually made the bet, they would have changed the space time continuum.
    The clerk would have taken more time to make the transaction, the random number generator (if on a digital Keno) would have come up different.
    On a ball machine the lever would be pressed at a different time.

    Using auto stop on a Slot Machine.
    I'm very good at stopping the reels to get the bonus symbols.
    No!
    The machines use an RNG and the auto stop is only to stop the video, and show the results of the spin faster.
    The spin has already been determined, as the RNG has already picked its number.
    It's used to speed up play.
    Now before digital machines you could actually mess with the handle and maybe possible get a reel to stop sooner.
    Bonus rounds are a different animal.
    Picking symbols during a bonus round is not pre determined and just more chance.
    What is pre determined is the max payout you can achieve during the round.

    Slots are the worst odds in the house!
    23% against you.
    But they are the most frustrating, exciting, and pay the most when you hit.
    No other game in the house has a chance of getting big wins on small bets.
    Problem is the speed of the play can kill your bankroll so fast, that you end upstairs in the sauna with a nice towel to cry on.
    Or with a few grand in your pocket to cover the hotel and the trip.

    Iv heard people on the boards say they want balancing?
    Why?
    Do you really love the game, or do you love the game?
    If you want to have 98% payback 100% of the time shoot punys.
    If you want to win big you gotta bet big.
    If you don't like pain, stay off the slots.
    There's some good odds plays on the craps table.

    I would not change it for the life of me though because it's the extreme feeling of losing big and winning big that keep me coming back.

    Entropia is cool because I can keep all my winnings in my storage and I know I didn't lose everything.
    I still have my toon, my skills and I can come back to where I was at any time.
    It is after all still an MMO.
    I don't have to bet another 5k to get my gold card back.

    MA must roll an RNG when you click on the dead Mob.
    As they said they have criteria that determines the size and nature of the returns.
    Biggest factor is Ped out.
    I also believe they have anti farming algorithms in place.

    Rock On!

    So, Jambon, you want to break even with hunting? You do know you can only achieve that with mu, right?
    Tt break even is a dream.

    Also, you had an ATH, and you still think the game hates you?

    Isn't it just a matter of expectations?

    You do know this game is made for you to lose?

    Dang man, in 13 years, I managed to get a 3k hof. How about hate?? 5 digits is just a dream. I don't even expect a 4 digit. Hell, not even a 3.
    And still I manage to play without depositing.

    But yes, I do feel what you feel. The game hates me. Maybe even more than it hates you. And I'm also on MA's shitlist. Loot is ridiculous. Hofs once per decade.
    You should see me scream at my pc some days
    But I consider myself smart enough to beat the system.
    At least, at my pace, that is.

    There's more than just the grind.

    Many people have fallen. But the main reason is always, expectations which are way to high.
    Results are broken dreams and frustrations.


    You're not alone.
    Know that.
    Just don't expect, and the love will come.

    Otherwise, take a break before you go mad.
    Maybe the love returns...

    First and foremost, Entropia is a game!

    Your expectations should always be in line with your budget. The players that try to play above there budgets, are the ones with unrealistic expectations..... and the ones who have unrealistic expectations and play above there budgets..... are the sort of players that are here today and gone tomorrow.

    My personal opinion is that I don’t mind paying to play a few hours in the evening, I just get frustrated if I have 2 or 3 bad runs in an evening and it costs me more than I really think is acceptable.

    That said, the ones in this game that last the test of time are the ones that are able to manage their expectations, with smart game play. We all have different disposable incomes and we choose what is an acceptable amount to deposit. The ones who chase the dream and try to play above there levels are ultimately the ones who continually moan, and leave...... the smart players play in balance - balance of skills in relation to equipment and mobs chosen to hunt.

    It’s human nature to want the best, if someone was to ask me what I would want, I would say “ more dps, more eco and more efficiency”...... do I have the budget for such a gun, no I don’t, so I have be smart and use a gun that gives me the best that I can afford...... until I hit an ath that will give the peds to upgrade!

    Balance is the key to a long life in the game!!

    but what your budget has to be has changed with loot 2.0+ , for the worse, that's what people are complaining about.
    before loot 2.0 300 PED did last for 2-3 days for me and now it's about 2-3 hours (same mob/craft)... a lot less bang for the buck.

    I do fully understand your pain, I can easy loose 500 peds per run after the changes, but it does usually sorta level out over several runs.

    If I stretch myself and hunt Yuka stalkers (level 100 approx) I usually just get a few 50 ped globals, and end up losing lots of peds, if I hunt teladon stalkers (level 65 approx) I still just get a few 50 ped globals, but don’t loose much peds at all.

    So isn’t it because my skills / armour / fap / gun etc is all in balance on the Teladon stalkers and not the yuka stalkers?
