It's mostly about equipment until you have close to max DPS for your category.
If we presume you have close to max DPS for your category, it's all about luck.
CAT10 is a different ballpark since DPS is uncapped, so it's more dependent on gear.
Hey DC, we dont cycle at LG, we spend. So cycle 325k ped a year in ammo with 90% return is 32.5k spent.
The last takuta battle lasted 3h and ppl spent 1k-1.5k ammo + enhancers + pills and high MU guns and armors. About 60ppl there, so i think Im safe to say we spent 75k+ during this LG.
