Run 15

Comments: Didnt trust the loot today, still dont do. Looks like we have seen plenty of everything spiders loot. Trying to find the point when loot goes. Maybe that Grenade Launcher is the sign, last time i had one i didnt see a global in 1.2k ped of ammo. Maybe i fall prone to wrong assumptions, we will see.

a) So i started the day slow with a Club run on Argonauts. I still needed 10ped tt of residue to click me a new UR125. Long story short:
Peds spent: 100.04 (Loughlin Masher One, no enhancers)
Argos knocked down: 84 (passed 2.5k/5k today)
Highlights: passed 1k Martial Arts :ninja:

Return TT: 61.61ped (including 73 ingot iron)

Return after MU estimated: ~62.84ped (102%)

Profit/Loss this run: -37.20ped

b) With the remnants of my last Jester D-1 Run and the iron ingots, i managed to make 75 clicks on Jester D-1, full condition...

TT spent: 37.85ped tt

Highlights: - none -

Return: 20.08ped TT (1.1k of residue)

Profit/Loss: -17.77ped

c) The click! This time i got my new fap on the first click! Which means profit over buying from auction.

Ped spent: 84.44 (9.44 in mats, 75ped in residue)

Return: UR125 full tt (85.10) and 3.07ped in enmatter residue

Profit/Loss this run: +16.35
(over buying cheapest UR125 in auc BO)

d) I still had about 1 quarter Apis left from yesterdays runs and i managed to shoot 45 Spiders with it, before it smoked up. Since the gun was already counted in yesterdays run my peds spent look like this in this run...

Peds spent in order that i spent them:
300ped Ammo
60.13ped Amp Repair
23.82 Armor Repair
_______________
383.95ped total

Highlights: During the run my thigs qwent to Tier 1.9:rolleyes:


TT Return: 586.24ped TT

Return after MU estimated: 609.69ped (~104% MU estimated)

Profit/Loss this run: +225.74

Profit/Loss all runs: +187.13ped

Profit/Loss total: +665.77ped


Time to spend some ped in assets: this time it were exactly 76.87ped i needed to buy to have all the stuff needed for this. Well this didnt work out completely, i wasnt able to buy the last 16 Frigulite ingots, so i went on a mining run, the 20peds i lost there are in this 76.87ped:



...its just about when you make the pics... ;)

Warning: The following text is an explenetation of my skill-loot-dependance-theory, if you dont like theories just donet mind it :)

Comment: My theory is that nearing in to levelups, rankups and unlocks causes bad loot. (other things do that too btw like recent ATHs, SIB, satiated markets) Every skill and profession that is involved in your current activity plays a role in that. A rankup in evade against melee mob and dodge against ranged mob too. A nearing rankup in a general skill, example perception can screw up your loot in all activities it is involved, mining and hunting, no matter the kind. There are special gaps that are extremely hard to go through. For example if you are closing in to level 30 prospector or surveyor. The system doesnt know or better, doesnt check, if you have serendipity unlocked yet. Regardless if you have it or not, reaching level 30 with prospecting/surveying is always a hard task, because technically you get a double-unlock there, Serendipity and Mineral Sense. The system doesnt care if you already have one of these, level 28-30 in mining is always an extremely hard gap. As soon as a skill or profession level relevant for your activity is getting near to a levelup loot goes down. And even though the number of skillups might stay normal, check what happens to the actual ammount of skills you get per skillup. In comparison to times where its not near anything it goes down too. Its like time stretching before you levelup.

If that were enough id be happy but it isnt. You also have neighbouring professions which cause the same effect. 2 of them in rangred hunting :(. I shoot with BLP Rifles, so Laser Rifle and BLP Handgun has an direct influence on my loot. If they are about to level up my loot is screwed. The effect is not that hard like a level up in BLP rifle (where my loot is most liekly to fall to a sure loss return over a longer period of shooting), because on of the skills i use is still producing loot, but your loot will fall to below average and therefore will cause a loss. The effect of laser handgun levelups on BLP Rifle hunting seems to be diminutive, same thing with drilling skill/driller prof and oremining.

Somewhere in the beginning of this log i said, i started it in a harmless scenario. I just ranked up and leveled up in BLP Hit, BLP and Laser DMG were far from leveling up (and still are). I had prospector at level 31.999 (now 32), had surveyor at 21.8 (now 21.9).

I called it harmless on the assumptions above, ive seen this a hundred times before, this is how it seems to work!

The gaps rolling back in now and will start to give me a hard time again...

Strangelove asked me what i call a bad loss: How about 1 Global in 1.2k ped of ammo? Or no medium sized+ HoF in 3k Spiders?

Run 16



Peds spent:
265ped Apis
10ped Amp
27ped ME
50ped Ammo
200ped Ammo
45.05ped Amp
18.47ped Armor
70.17ped Amp
300ped Ammo
32.23ped Armor
_____________

1017.92ped

( i still got enough Apis left to kill about 95 Spiders, but i stoped yesterday)

TT Return: 525.81ped

Return after MU: 573.14 (~109% MU)

Profit/Loss this run: -444.78

Profit/Loss total: +220.99

More comments: So much to my assumptions, we will see if they work out in the long run. I am still in the process of skilling up and thats why i might be no ubah. Maybe beeing ubah means, to have no need for skilling up anymore. Marco said, the easiest way is the specialists way, this would not contradict. If it is possible at a certain level where i am not dependant on my additional skillgains anymore to chip them out to constantly stay in a skill- and profession-range that does not harm my loot income, playing EU might yield a constant profit.

But for now i am far from that and so i have to have the following things in the near future, in order of appearance:

1. Levelup in Laser Rifle Hit (very soon)
2. Rankup in Ranged Damage Assesment (41 skillpoints to go)
3. Rankup in Rifle (from Champion to Elite in about 60 points)
4. and whatever i forgot to check that might come too...

run 15c

In your calculations , you save ped when you make your own fap, you don't earn money (even compared buying one at the auction house).

If you would have sold it at the auction you would have green numbers, now it's just saved money.
The way you count it you could also say you lost money because you didn't sell it at the auction and it should be red numbers... :)

I said its profit over buying one from auction. So i safe ped. I need the fap for hunting, this way or the other, theres no way around it. So thats peds i need to spend. If i do it in 1 click its actually profit, because here i am the crafter as well as the user, i pay no markup. Since i am both sides in this deal, i profit on it, because i dont have to pay what auctions offer me. (Besides i am still in the red over buying one from auction, because i skill on crafting residue and the simple I plastic ruds) so this is lost money. But spending 84ped in materials and residue to craft an item i would have to pay 99ped for, i can put this as my profit, thats how crafting works, or at least how i understand it.

Run 18

Comments: A WoF match is always something special for me! In the first WoF in 2007 i did not participate because i was just grown out of the Opalo and i died fairly often in my Shogun at the Argonauts so i looked up on my soc-boss with awe who was in the US team which won. Since then i played no less than 18 WoF matches, fought as good as every mob out there under WoF conditions, had good matches, had bad matches and had those kinda matches you never forget. I raised a team last year myself and we made it to vice world-champion, something i am proud of. And seeing this team gathering again at a TP and knowing we gonna rock sends a chill down my spine, its a great team i got there! And i have to thank everybody from my team, the judges and the opponents for these great experiences!

I can only advise everybody who plays EU, no matter if crafter, miner or hunter to join a WoF team and share that experience. In todays WoF matches a snablesnot young can make the difference of win or loss of the finals, so it doesnt really matter what gun you are bringing, what fap or armor. With a little luck it can be you, who makes the difference of win or loss!

Sunday we fought against Team Scotland and for a 3 peeps team they earned my respect! We were 270something points in advance in this group match so we took it slow and just had some grinding fun, without big risks, big money predamagers and such. Since i played in mainteam in the first match, i switched places with our new teamcaptain Robert Lophophoria and took care of the bonus mob which was Legionaire this match. I went out to Tukar with my good friend Dasouth, who faped me against the nasty robots Gen07-10 and made a total of 7 globals and a 49.96peder in this match, so this was my personal best match for support. Since the 2 troopers i globaled first and the 49peder Legionaire didnt count into matchpoints i made just 5 lootpics, which i will put in when i am back from work. After the Legionaire gave me swirlies for 25 points (bonus mob) i changed armor, thanked Das for his help and went out to solo some Formicacida, where i made another 4 globals.

Just on a sidenote: in the match i killed 74 Legionaires for the Mad Prophet Quest and finally gathered that trooper part for Trooper Quest of Mr. Book.

I made a total of 37 points for my team :rolleyes:
which is my personal best!

Total ped spent: 1851.87

Highlights:






TT return: 1666.73

Estimated return after MU: 1752ped (~105%)

stuff left from what i bought for the match:
10 Dmg Enhancer III
8 Dmg Enhancer II
24ped on Amp
ME for 54 minor jumps
____________________
~113ped on the +side,
(this is stuff i dont have to buy in future runs, so we just keep that in mind, when future runs seem to be extraordinarily eco!)

but what i forgot to mention is the 20ped i spent for the faper so this is a
-20 on the loss side i should put into the calculation

Profit/Loss this run: -119.87ped

Profit/Loss total: -256.94

Run 19

Comments: Facepalmed! 4 runs with loss :( Here we go realitycheck, i am closing in to rankup in coolness and RDA (second one jumped with a little chip during the run) i also levelup in DMG Damage and i am not yet over it. I think this causes the bad loot. All i can hope for now is a HoF in the next run. I havent seen a decent HoF in about 3k spiders and i have 1 more chance to make one in the next Apis before i have to downgrade because i am out of peds... doesnt look good... not at all... still theres a tip i got about 4 years ago from an old very skilled player who called himself Kaiser Soze: I grind in one profession until i HoF, THEN i change, not before...

a) Peds spent: 525.46 (took the cb19 i looted on Formicacida during WoF to make a run on Leviathan)

Highlights: :scratch2:6 no looters in a row maybe?


TT return: 309.22ped

Return after MU: 318.49 (~103%)

Profit/Loss this run: -206.96

b) ped spent: 1632.37ped (full Apis spiders spiders spiders...)






TT return: 1115.84ped :cussing:

Return after MU: 1138.15ped (~102% MU)

Profit/Loss this run: -494.21ped

Profit/Loss total: -958.11ped

Great blog!, heart breaking but great:D

seeing your loots on spiders makes me think they are not really worth hunting. hardly any markup. i guess they are a home run mob, where you got to hit a huge hof to get something nice. your skill gain to loot theory if true would suck as the way the system works one is always fairly close to a level in something.

HOF already!

Rifle skills made in 14 days: 68
Peds needed to chip that 68 rifle skills in: ~740ped
Total skills made in 14 days: 1403 (now at 182393)
Spiders killed in 14 days: 1136
At the last skillcheck i had ~23.5k ped to spent to chip in to Commando, now its: 21.964ped
if the trend continues i will hit Commando at approximately 9-9.3k rifle skill which is still a long long way to go, but can be done... in a year or so...

Spider MU works better for me than other mob, but what that means you have to find out yourself :) It brings steady globals, regular HoFs and ubahs/ATHs about 6 times a year (did so last year at least). I stick to Cajuze for the sole reason to minimize defense costs, i can take 2 matures and a young on me now and kill them, but this costs too much, thats why i dont hunt them at Tukar, where scenarios like this are common, especially if youre not alone. My defence costs on a big Atrox hunt in a dense spawn are approx 150% higher.

My skillgain to loot theory works for me, but many told me for them not. Since i use it i understand my results better. However i got to admit that it sometimes doesnt work and doesnt bring the expected results, like when i think i am in the hardest part of a lootcurse, i suddenly HoF, or the other way around when i think i am over the hill, i am not. So beyond this other factors play a role too. If a mob is really hot it doesnt really matter if youre in a bad loot phase or not. If the market is in desperate need of an item and you hunt the mob that drops it, the chance is higher than normal to loot it... so these are other factors that play a role.

Run 20

-1180ped on top of -958

So in detail this run was like this: peds spent and recycled
a) spiders
260ped Apis
40ped Amp
300ped Ammo
26.19ped Armor
300ped Ammo
59.42ped Amp
23.63ped Amp
b) Oremining
182ped OA105
39ped bombs
182ped OA105
39ped bombs
c) this one i loaded to dig out my claims. Needed to shot way less than i thought so i pumped it into more spiders
180ped Ammo
30ped Amp
8.37ped Armor (this was the only run i had a small profit, had a global here, where all around me HoFed)
d) after this small run i thought that maybe my luck could have changed, so more spiders eeekkk bad idea
290ped Ammo
46.45ped Amp
19.65ped Amp
26.89ped Armor
e) not the first time i went to FF (formerly known as CND) with ~600ped left on the card, it often helped me out of the bad streak before... not this time...
510ped (3x OA104 + bombs)
25ped costs to go to FF
170ped (OA104+bombs)
170ped (OA104+bombs with this one i went broke even though i had the whole dome covered)
---
25ped costs to go back to Calypso

Besides that one run on spiders where i had about 45ped profit, every other run ended up with a partly huge loss, returns between 20-80%...


peds spent total: 2732.60ped (loots sold where i could to traders and auc offers, i even TT some more than i should have, so i had about 1180ped and recycled them till they were gone)



profit/loss so far: ~ -2138ped


Analysis of run 20:

I blame my bad returns on my BLP damage where i am about to level up. With that last Apis i tried to make it and i should be really near to make the bar full, but it didnt work out. I am also closing in to max the CB29, the best looted L-gun in BLP Rifle. So i will have to spend 1-2 more Apis with bad returns before i can expect to get something good again.



I experienced the correlation between levelups and bad loot times many times before. It makes my loot somewhat predictable. The gap reaches from about .9- about .98 of a level and can be defined as a period where you simply get no globals or HoFs. Also the skillups, even though they may come plenty have not the same value , as they have in other phases of the bar, they appear to be way lower. The gap comes in both prostandings of the same profession like BLP Dmg and BLP Rifle Hit or Prospecting and Mining. These gaps seem to grow exponentially just like the skillvalue does. It might take a 100ped cycled to get over it from level 2-3, ~3k ped cycled for level 55 to 56 and an estimated 100k ped cycled from 99-100 (but what do i know hehe). Of course it helps to have a pedcard big enough to go straight through it, once you are over it you can expect HoFs and ATHs that pay back what you just spent. Actually thats what i see they are for.

There are different methods to get over it though. Lets compare BLP Dmg and Miner here. While it helps to use the biggest gun possible to go through this in hunting, its seems to be the quickest way and may take ages to downgrade, in mining you will simply dont have the hits needed to skill miner regardsless of the size of your finder and amps. So while i think its best to upgrade in hunting, i think it might more sense to downgrade in mining and try to get a maximum amount possible of small claims.

So since i dont have the pedcard right now to deal the maximum dmg output possible, i gonna try the quantity way for hunting pretty much like Alice postulates it. Killing skillup hunting on Shinkiba. Still i must prepare myself for losses in BLP rifle hunting, so the first thing i have to do is earning some peds...

and even though i could depo lets play this game without deposit for a while and see what 182k skills are worth :)
What's your next step now that you decided to not deposit?

Chip out skills to raise funds or lower your cost to play by going to smaller mobs?

:scratch2:

:scratch2:
no chiping out! No sale of neccesary equipment!

I learned 1 thing about the 'lootcurse', if you raise funds now, it'll be gone in a second. I could deposit, it might give me a teaser HoF, still money would be gone in a second right after it. You can sell your guns and armors and whatever to raise funds, how big is the chance to lose it within a day? Huge!

So what i gonna do is, i will take my last 50-100 ped and invest it into Force Nexus and a CB5, then i go sweating... swunting... mining... and at last hunting again.

It might take days, weeks or months for my loot to recover, so i follow an advice Dan Petrov gave me one day we met at the spiders... "Take it slowly!'

Run 21

Comment: Run... lol its more like a collection of many small steps. I dropped away the last drops on my orefinder, at least i found a decent orespot with this. On this spot i thought that it might be wise to buy a OF105 again in the near future, it never treated me bad and they are cheap in comparison to the L-finders. So after i sold everything that i allowed me to sell, stuff like Daikiba Wools and Hairgel and LightMind Essence and my Pyro Strike Chip and other leftovers i managed to raise 150ped. I bought me a CB5 and started to sweat again. Sweating is slower than ever it seems but at least the people are nice and the chats are a good thing to forget the spider globals. I thought to myself it might make sense to mine my own Force Nexus, but as i said before i am in the loot gap and i still blame it on my damage level. So after these runs that left me with 2k ME and 60ped for Ammo i decided to get over that gab with Shinkiba killing. I will make it! But it is sloooow!

Highlights: the pic DanceParlogDance!



-stay tuned-

Comments: Fooling around testing what might bring profit and what not. I tried small and big Shinkibas and mined for Force Nexus of which i could get more than 3k. I am also closing in to 3k sweat, so after my peds for mining and hunting are gone, i will have to sell it and start from the beginning with the same procedure and hope for less loss, than i got so far.

Now the good news: The BLP Damage bar is full now. If i am lucky my luck will turn to the better in the next days, i just hope i can waste enough time online doing mini hunts and mini mining runs to skill enough before i go broke. So here are some impressions of my returns.



Still i estimate my losses to 104ped in the last 3 days!

Profit/Loss total: -2242ped

Slowly i close into completely broke, but i am still a ME producer, i am still mining , hunting and sweating. I wont give up! I have been there and made it back into the K-ped regions several times, all i need is patience and a little luck!

When you are in the heat of cycling your ped cycle you might take it as losing to throttle yourself down. Peak-performance brings peak-returns is what you tell yourself. But is that true or is it just the phantom of greed haunting you? When you slow down to zero this world changes. You stop for a talk, you are in no rush anymore. The first days you still might be on cold global turkey, but after a while you get a certain casualness while you concentrate on the steps that you planed to not go entirely down. They wont let you down, the question is when they let you back up. With a full pedcard you often dont even notice that the step you just made was the wrong step and so you reward yourself with just another run for a wrong step. The endboss in this game is your own ego.

Its worth a try to struggle it down now and then. Its a tough fight because you constantly fool yourself with assumptions, wishes and anticipation. The card or the storage still delivers whats needed to do a small run, just a small chance to get the swirlie, but it wont come. I will not fail! -what does that mean in a situation like this? It means that the game becomes a narrow path and you better watch your next step.

Its worth the try to play this game to an end, if you fail and deposit again or if you make it back up doesnt really matter, what matters is that you learn to constantly watch your steps and to go further on from time to time. The nondepositor has a message to teach for us depositors and even though we might never completely grasp it, it is important to learn as much as possible about it.

So tomorrow at this time i might stand here with nothing left, what i can call my turnover, but 4k ME, and when i sold it, it will most certainly make me 56ped. How often did i load my amp with that without even recognizing what i am doing? But tomorrow or the day after when i got those 56ped on my card, i will have another point of view. I will have to think very well about what to do next... selling equipment is a no-no, same goes for skills, same goes for that stuff i consider life-sustaining, like the rare raw materials for crafting my faps.

At least for a while, lets say until the next event that really makes beeing competitive necessary, i will go without deposit and try my best to not go down...

First days are the worst days!

not gonna make a new thread for each and every small bit but add some lines day by day now
Income by sweating and trading april 24-26: +18.1ped
Income by sweating and trading april 27: +11.05ped (85.15ped)

Profit/Loss total: -2212.85ped

Comments: First days are the worst days, but after a while you acclimatize. So i trade in the micro market for a ped here and a ped there, i also sweat but its hard to make more than 2-4ped a day with this. I am aiming at crafting me a new fap so i will need 75ped in residue as profits. I still got the ressources need for that in my storage. With that i will start fap-jobs again for decay+ tips. Along with the trading this should double my daily income. It also makes sure that i make decay again and decay will bring back good loot sooner or later.

Kay i got weak and thought i need some more things to do. So i sold my collection of enhancers and bought a brandnew ur125. I have money for a second one on my card or for some trades that might show up.

UR125-fap service or ME anyone? Just pm me! Next 3 days i will be available from 5 pm Rockies time till like 1 am!

For fap service i charge decay+mu (+travel costs/ME/armor decay if that happens) and i gladly accept tips! So the ussual costs you can expect from every good faper!

Income by sweating, trading and other market stunts april 28: +25.84ped

Profit/Loss total: -2187.01ped

Run 22

i made a lot of stuff the last days... i sweated 6k sweat... i tried to get Mega into my soc, i traded all the quick opportunities that i found and i made a lot of experiments with the following results:

1. 1 or 2 more runs and my enmatter finder swims belly up (costs see below)
2. i managed to make a BAMF ZK5-run with 25% return due to massive lag ( called the game: Lagacy of Crashania that day cause it fits. I cant even find out if its the w-lans fault, my canadian providers fault or MAs fault, fact is, 6-9am in WoF matches i get this game running nearly lagfree) approx -45ped
3. i learned what BAMF stands for.
4. and i still not HoFed or even globaled in any of this, in fact i didnt even get a natural IX -53.77ped
5. Clubing Argonauts worked! +4.21ped
6. Trades went slow +3.6ped
7. No fap jobs so far :(


Profit/Loss this run: -90.96ped

Profit/Loss total: -2277.97ped

Conclusions: Eu loot comes seasonal and you cant force shit. All you can do is trying to find the things that work for you and do them. Club might work and i think i risk an amp or 2 before my matter finder is gone. All this enmatter mining and clubing lately is healthy for my hp, i have about half way done of the HP 170. Trading, faping as much as possible... and staying cool concerning loots. They will come back! I just hate to write them in red.

Comment: I took several days off and spent my freetime watching a lot of youtube clips about the worlds most famous conspiracy theories, they were more thrilling than watching my peds vanish. I still hadn't solved my damage level problem and may always was a weak loot month for me. When i came back only half of my selfmade ME was sold on auction and my pedcard showed a weak 160ped. So basically what i had left from my 500ped enhancer sale was 3k Force Nexus, about 45ped tt of enmatters, 97 iron ingot, 3k ME and those 160ped. The typical miner that i am i got itchy without a propper orefinder in my inventory and so i checked auctions. There i found a real bargain. A low tt OF105 untiered but with tier numbers above 100 for the first 5 tiers. So i sold all the ressources that i had, bought the orefinder, and made 89drop orerun...

Profit/Loss this run: -27,15ped


Profit/Loss total: -2305.12ped

in those 89 drops the finder went to tier 0.9, but that wasnt really helping. The run was aweful. I needed a wonder to happen or if not this i needed to get over that damn levelup gap. So i signed in for predamaging in Team DACHs next WoF match.

The match started horrible for me due to bad connection. Within the first hour of the match i had like 10 crashes. I was about to throw the towel, when the wonder happened!

WoF match: Peds invested ~75ped

Return in loot shares ~750ped

Kawa Shurkamp Saki is the name of the mainteam hunter of team DACH who just looted a 26k ped Furor. And i was his predamager. After all repairs my share had about a value of ...

Profit this match: +675ped


Profit/Loss total: -1630.12ped

pretty much at the end of the match i also made the level 56 BLP DMG! Finally!

Back to the spiders...:rolleyes:

Run 24

Comments: Wrong assumptions are one thing, there other danger are wrong desires. As soon as i came back from work i went back to the spiders and the first run started with a really nice global. Overall the run should have been about 120ped Profit if not more. But after that global the loot went back down and i should have asked myself why. Unfortunately i asked this question too late, after another 300ped run on spiders. In both runs together i killed 92 spiders. So my loot went bad and there must have been a reason for it, i found it quite quickly...

i am only 15skillpoints short in rifle to rankup from champion to elite. According to my theory this should be a reason for a serious lootgap. 3 weeks ago i started to prepair for that gap and i planed to jump it with finishing the first Mad Prophet Quest.

Now i think i should have changed to Legionaires 1 run earlier, because the return of the second spider run was already really bad. So after that run i finally changed mob, went to the Hadesheim Crater and started filtering out the Legios. With the remaining ped on my apis i managed to kill 62 of them, so now i have 134/200 done.

Here is what i spent in order i spent it:

147.82ped (...was left on the Apis Kawa gave me as present/lootshare)
34.75ped (to fill up the Dante to 65ped, actually that was not enough, thats why i ony killed 92spiders)
300ped Ammo
31.6ped Armor ( this is the lag indicator, the lag was ultrahard in the first run)
69.78ped Dante
300ped Ammo
29.39ped Armor (bad lags again i can do at least 5ped better without lag)
60ped Amp (from which i still got 34.93ped left after Apis broke)
165ped Ammo
20.66ped Armor (EMine 6a against Legios and all the other mob in the crater)
__________________________

Peds spent total: 1124.07ped

Highlights:



TT return: 952.62ped

Estimated return after MU: 994.62 (~101% MU :mad:)

Profit/Loss this run: -159.45ped


Profit/Loss total: -1789.57ped

I bought a new half down Apis tier 2 to finish the Legios and start the Eviscerator quest. So thats what i am doing next. The prize for the quest should bring me well over the rankup.
