    Personal loot pool - WHAT IF they implemented it?

    Just imagine, as you unefficiently waste peds away, or due to bugs/lags/disconnects lose some of your hard earned loot, all of this (a percentage perhaps) will be given to you as basic residue (metal, enmatter, shavings, yarn, petri dishes, oil, lyst, etc) in an attempt to match a 90% return...

    Question: How do I prove there is or is not a personal loot/expenses pool/tracker?

    Please post your ideas and thoughts about how such an experiment should be conducted to provide cheap, effective and clear data that shows the highest bias between personal loot pool and no personal loot pool, that previous events influence or not future events in a significant manner, or that...

    Question: Do you like the new hunting loot distribution?

    In VU 12.5.0, the chance of getting a "no loot" while looting a mob has decreased dramatically, to 10% or so. To compensate for this, there are now more minuscule loots, but the looting experience is more pleasant in my opinion. Do you agree?

    Question: The Unknown factor and mining data logging...

    I seem to get lots of small claims with Unknown resources. I don't know how the mining loggers manage this, I don't use any, but it's annoying that you can pull some of them in one tool use, and the claim data is gone. You basically can't see what you're pulling, and after you do, you have the...

    The serious business of pretend products If you've spent time on Facebook, you might be mystified by all the people tending to their virtual farms and virtual pets. I know I am.

    Would you like bittorent download options provided from MA? Once upon a time, MA provided a download option via bittorent for VU 10. It was wonderful, the first 2 days I saw the peers counter reach over 1500 people. Even better, the effort on MA's servers was minimal, since rarely would they...

    Question: How do you grade a gaming PC?!

    I am sad to see that everyone is whining on the forum that their X years old PC (which they bough for Excel/Word use) can't run EU with all the fancy graphics. And it's somehow MA's fault, that they expect gamers to somehow have gaming computers... How old do you think a PC that can run fresh...

    Loot system cracked!?

    How can we tell? Does anyone have any suggestions on what would constitute a proof concept for testing loot theories? Suppose I have one, how can I test it is the actual one being used? Do you know of any loot theories that seem to the right ones, and if so, why do you suggest that?
