Sorry it bounced back into the negative zone for you Bud. See you around Migration time.
Smiles the 962 hof on CP was taken back in the next two maces (free skilling...ok with that).Sorry it bounced back into the negative zone for you Bud. See you around Migration time.
You are doing it to yourself, game or MA is not at fault here. MA is doing what they are supposed to do - gradually take your money in form of negative TT returns long term, they are not charity. The answer is to scale down your hunting to the point you no longer care about your TT returns. For me it's 100HP mobs I can comfortably hunt on my budget without giving a damn about TT returns. I have seen ppl scaling down to as low as caly punies. You would be surprised how much you could enjoy this game if you stopped constantly caring about losses. At the end of day hunting is about pulling mob's HP bar to 0 no matter if it's 10HP or 100HP or 1000HP - you still have thrills on smaller mobs in form of multies, globals or some items. I wouldn't be surprised if caly punies being profitable after MU with all that high MU % nova/blazar that doesn't affect TT returns + rubio/azure. Scale down and stop worrying about returns.Ma have made me really sad today. I can't cope with it. My wife tells me all the time, the game turns me into Jekyll and Hide. It's not good for my state of mind. Why can't the game take my money and just be nice.
nn...pacing up and down my lounge mumbling to myself over this game is not worth it anymore ;-(
Well if Danny and Evey are in agreement, something is certainly serious wrong. If you guys 'are' still hunting, please let let us know when it's fixed.Totally agree, something has gone badly out of sync with the loot since the last maintenance .......... it’s been horrendous!!!
Can I ask what weapon you're using? Could be a loot adjustment to few weapons only in the last maintenace I've spoken to few other very experienced players offine, and I'm hearing the same 'horrendous loot' message.I doubt it`s the loot system (and I don`t say it often ).
I had some nice runs on formicacidas on Saturday, with a couple of globals and plenty spleen oil.
I also had a 200x multi on Sunday (unfortunately on a small mob, daikiba old alpha).
Rick, did you ever consider switching mobs / activities more often?
In my case, after a few dry runs, it makes wonders to switch to a slightly lower mob.
I think it could be the dihydrogen monoxide MA put in loot since that long lasting maintenance last week? I am worried and I want an immediate public statement about this, something is totally off...
To me things went really sideways as of 17th of May which is I think around the day the Marcimex event got announced.Totally agree, something has gone badly out of sync with the loot since the last maintenance .......... it’s been horrendous!!!
it didnt last long lolwell little update
Mace count v overall returns (lets remember only tracking since 8th May all previous losses ignored)
71 maces -884 ped
73 maces -746 ped
82 maces -884 ped
86 maces -1349 ped (464 loss in two maces)
88 maces -1465 ped (115 loss in another two maces)
90 maces -1808 ped (343 loss in two more maces)
Added £200 today as running low on bank roll, although sadly still set on global ban for heavy hunting.
92 maces -2316 ped (another -508 loss in two maces, with one of the most eco weapons in the game)
92.5 maces -2473 (another 157 loss for half a mace....STOPPED)
TOLD MA in Chat they're stupid idiots not to turn on my loot after another depo.
TT'd all in frustration, taking a break until migration.
Btw got to 104 placed on tracker before the real hardcore global ban kicked in, tin foil hat and all that sh*t.
MA really are idiots, total idiots. It's not like there's hardly any chance to loot anything good anyway, so we're paying for simply skilling. All I wanted was some loot after paying them MORE money today yet they hit me with further hard losses.
It's not like I had a fat hof and giving free peds back either. This is deposit money.
I'm angry actually, at the placebo bullshit weapon stats to suck us in, and the piss poor loot management.
See you in 3 months when ever that migration starts. Got the ped on the card might as well burn it.
Almost skilled clubs to 7K though, but its pointless.
I'm out. bye bye
ps: before all the fans boys give me sh*t, I had a little chat with some friendly ubers before I logged and they're suffering badly.
Well if you think that's normal returns. Carry on, more fool you.it didnt last long lol
what coding problems, with your hunting knowledge you should not be allowed to post in hunting section, you remind me of Wizzina he didnt hunt in 10 years and first time he does a hunt he comes and complain about loot lmaoWell if you think that's normal returns. Carry on, more fool you.
I prefer to wait for the bug fix.
A 15 year old online game open to billions of people 24/7 can just about pull together a few old timers holding it together, where a player can get into the top 100 with 2 weeks hunting. We should be competing with 100k players at least, not 200 probably at most.
Hardly funny, it's a tragedy. I'm not in game earning revenue for the firm because of their coding problems . Yeah laughable stuff indeed....shakes head.
EDIT. Looks like MA have bug fix for Tuesday announced.
I appreciate you have FEN items to sell, hopefully they can prove their value when all is working correctly.
We all have our own assessment of what is acceptable. Some players are happy to take 20k - 50k losses in a row and wait for MA to pay them an item, and make it that's players "responsibility" to find a buyer to cover that loss. You might call that entertainment, I call that nightmare. That's not 'fun' to me. In fact it's bullshit if MA are asking you to sell their shit to cover your loss. Clever though I like it, Haha.what coding problems, with your hunting knowledge you should not be allowed to post in hunting section, you remind me of Wizzina he didnt hunt in 10 years and first time he does a hunt he comes and complain about loot lmao
Well, the servers have to be paid, electricity bill has to be paid, team has to be paid.Are they planning a corporation holiday to Bahamas this summer and need some money from us to sponsor it?
Here's the thing though, does this game feel like its a good value for the money spent?MA cant run EU for free, they have costs. They are not a charitable organisation, they are a company that have to make money.
It is what it is.Thx for the detailed post.
The saviour is clearly not in the Fen for you Rick.
Well if my losses after sales of spleen and output amps (which I got a decent amount I reckon), and two small ESI's I think that's enough data. I measure my peds left at the end of runs and after sales, I've got a pretty empty storage it's easy to keep loot separated.Rick.. do you keep track of your actual TT in and TT out, in order to see your longterm TT return?
Those losses tell you nothing. And it's easy to get discouraged when you only see minus runs.
A FYI for you.
I have a 79.5% efficiency gun with amp (lr-40 fen edition). Currently 70k ped cycled since I started tracking with it (2019-05-15) And I am at 97% TT return.
Last 4 days the loot has been bad for me as well. But it's important to have proper bankroll so u keep shooting or in your case swinging. So you can get your return up.
Wall of text
The Idea is that his wife said he can't put anymore money inside this pedsink. That is the real Bottom Line.Ok so lets break this down...you burnt through 139 maces at 500 ped per mace. Did you also burn the same number in amp? If so then:
139 * (500+135) = 88265 ped in
if we say you expect 95% return, then that should equal around -4413.25 loss.
your saying you finished -3892 down at the end of 139 maces, so your sitting at 95.59% return.
But then your saying that was with MU? so have you recorded what your actual TT return was so we can see what your actual return % is? Otherwise that return % is within expected reasons.
