Why am I doing this:
Will be using a OF-211 (L) to start with. Will write of finders as a one time cost and not count the decay on each run. Will use imp extractor and OT-104 as refiner. Will not count profit in skills untill I unlocked Mineral Sense. To set a goal, a tower in VU 10, dont want Sofia to catch up or anything.. :)

Don't worry I will beat you Sircus. :D To get a tower before you! Muhahaha and so on

In my Sanity trips, I will always use at least OA-101 amps. I will upgrade to something bigger whenever I will think it would be Sane.



Example run:



Incomes: (incl. MU)
Lyst 99.66
Zinc 53.45
Belk 2.31
Sweat x 1
-----
+155.42

Expenses: (incl. MU)
Ammo 0.00 (not always)
Finder 2.05
Ampsxbombs 153.00
Repairs 0.00 (not always)
-----
-155.05

This run: +0.37
Totally Total: +0.37

Comments: If any.

So let's begin, shall we? :)

Hey sir. 100 bombs used + OA-101 50 tt used at 104% MU or so = 152 expenses.

Even if I would not know how to count, calculator knows better than me ^_^

P.S. For those who wanted to know (Sircus), that clip before is not from animation series but based on a 2D game series... like this one. (I have told this but nobody remembers anyway)

Yah, I met an orange shirt miner afterward who was hiding behind trees at the beginning and only then said hello. :silly2: Turned out he also met kerrigan lol.

Tbh I really think it is quite a childish affair, it's not like running near, behind or after another miner changes your returns. I did several runs with my old socmates to check this, I did not see any changes during the run overall.

What we found out is that only re-running your own mined areas too fast matters. (Though one of PAC members was proud to tell of his 1k bombs dropping standing on the spot afk autoclicking, after which he promptly got a large hof back on the last 9 bombs. So maybe even that does not matter much in the long term.)

yeah i also believe mining on the same plot of land as another does not mean you will not find deposits. many times i have cross paths with others only to see them find claims right in my tracks, and vice versa. i will make sure to shoot kerrigan as well if i ever see this person.

just because you burn through a crazy amount of huge amps doesnt mean you arent a noob ;)

LMAO! That's awesome sofia! I have "some" respect for Queen as he/she is a pretty good miner (always globalling/hoff'ing), however, when you mess with NBK, then you're going to get put down! :yay:

I had some respect for Blades. I can now say I have none. Now that I know blades likes to PK other miners at will and my soc mates, I am declaring war :)

Carry on Sofia! :handgun:

Maybe now you'll understand what was wrong in this post:

Now, I have heard many people talking about 25-50% returns for months (take ruskea as an example), and I can just say that there must be something wrong in what/how they are doing it. I know certain examples of players.. (won't mention..) who have revealed their mining tactics to me.

Most common mistake is not being logical, e.g. getting fine returns until trying out new stuff, thinking it works one way or another in short term and they keep doing it in the long term as well... while actually it makes different results in long term, and they deny the fact. For example: using Unl non-SIB guns with low level and saying they would get same return from L guns, using deep finders and biggest amps possible as soon as they can and saying their return decreases after the CGA (which is when Tk120(L) SIB period begins - what a coincidence!), etc.

There are, of course, my own secrets on how do I get the balance so steady.. ;) Which I will not share. All I can say is, in long term you should get the same % TT back, more or less. So basically anybody can have such a nice profit as I am having :) if they play smart of course.

Maybe now you'll understand what was wrong in this post:
Nothing is wrong, I was just whining that's all :D After all, I still keep doing the same thing even if it is my lowest luck period atm? I wonder why?

Also I was liek 10k down before I got my angelic tower I still have to get that far!!

something is wrong with mining in last 2, 3 days, ok in the last weekend it was "superb", today I only waited for my soc guys to tell me is good to mine lol, so scary I am about those returns :eek:
It was "superb" for me during the first few weeks of the SGA. I wish I had done more mining not hunting then but there were those bugs, steep stuff etc I guess. So nothing could be done about it.

Also: Mining luck is personal for each avatar! See me and Sircus for comparison. We're in the same soc even. You can still do well.
Maybe it is. Also having the same problem lately :scratch2:

Well there is surely something a bit different about returns per run during this VU, however I am not quite sure what exactly. However it mostly works the same as before.

The wrong post was the old one, where Sofia at lvl 2,5 prospector or what you had, lo' and behold, was unveiling teh ultimate truth about mining after dropping 300 bombs. And criticising others for having bad luck. That was wrong :D

Nowadays, you just have normal mining, loosing :D
