    I too am running out of funds. I am able to do a deposit this week, but I feel like the returns have become abysmal since PayPal has been disabled, and if it continues with the next deposit then I will probably join the other 100 sweaters the ambu's.

    I was looking for a word to describe the returns lately, I think "abysmal" sounds pretty good..

    I don't know if it's linked to PayPal story, but indeed there's something wrong.
    Return is so bad lately I'm sorry to say mine just looks like an absolute scam..

    So guys you should be happy that you can't deposit, lucky you, stay away !

    Fly, you fools !

    I doesn't strike as a surprise that returns become worse if so many people cannot deposit. Less money in the system and equal amount out means less return in game.

    In this way paypal being down affects everyone and not only the paypal users.
    Maybe less the paypal users since I'm not even logging in any more until I can deposit and have some fun.

    Take the tin foil hat off please....there are many talks of loot returns being worse throughout the history of PCF.
    Many come up when we are leading up to an annual mayhem event (maybe they just need the extra return to be able to pay out the prizes?). Perhaps your avatar is in a downswing which will come around (another theory), maybe you are not tracking correctly and are just going by what your pedcard looks like (a regular type of response posted on PCF), maybe you haven't cycled enough for that multiplier ( another usual type of response on PCF).

    Whatever the reason is, it isn't linked to Paypal and deposits.

    "9.1. Restricted Activities

    In clause 9.1. of we have inserted the new sub-clause 9.1.ii. for clarification:

    ii. Use of the PayPal Services in connection with offerings which are illegal in the location where you are using the PayPal Services, including without limitation some online gambling offerings. If you are unsure whether or not a particular offering is illegal in your location, you must confirm the legality of the offering prior to using the PayPal Services in connection with that offering;

    We have adjusted the numbering of the subsequent sub-clauses accordingly; other than that clause 9.1. remains unchanged."

    could that be the reason?

    Quite possibly the reason , maybe its time to move boxes to ingame purchases to avoid this issue.

    I would welcome that, but would suggest to move they keys also into a craftable items, where the boxes are lootable/minable.

    As there is no direct profit for MA on the purchase of the box/keys, it would eventually become a market product, where markup and construction fees will fluctuate.

    Simple recipe can be used ( ie. 10 key parts + 500 nova/blazar)..

    Dropping my opinion here

    I think the return is indirectly related to the deposit. If paypal depositers aren't able to deposit, they will probably cease most / all in-game activities and the system will lose a potential amount of PEDs that should be generated by them.

    In the long run, we will be able to feel more of it as amount in the loot pool decreases. I am one of them that have planned to deposit via paypal in the future (since I got extra income there) and haven't been able to do so, which is why I've been limiting myself to play.

    I hope the issue is resolved or MA will have to find another payment provider.

    Could be the issue as well. Swedish players cannot buy strongbox keys, paypal finds out MA is a swedish company and was under investigation for gambling practice. I wish we got a clear clarification of what the issue really is from MA. Why are they so silent about this?

    I would welcome that, but would suggest to move they keys also into a craftable items, where the boxes are lootable/minable.

    I'd be one to support them to have it craftable or achievable in-game, but sadly, MA gets a lot of money from selling it exclusive through webshop I'd doubt they'll consider this idea.
