    Here in the thread are many people who say it isn't fine and i know even more ingame and people who have even quit because of those terrible returns, sample size far greater than >1...

    You may just be one of the few expection who do have fine loot by coincidence.

    Let me quote a fragment of MindArk's last financial statement from May 2019.

    In section "Analysis of the results for Entropia Universe" they state as follows:

    Looking only at Entropia Universe and its revenues and expenses, one finds an operating profit of
    20.4 million SEK and a profit before tax of 17.1 million SEK, i.e. Entropia Universe is an extremely
    profitable product.
    Do you get it now? EU is extremely profitable for MindArk and they will surely do everything to keep it that way. If EU is profitable for them, it cannot be profitable for you. There are probably some exceptions which proves the rule, like Evey.

    Good luck guys, don't forget to keep EU extremely profitable for MA today

    well, actually it can be.
    Buy deeds.
    They can be quite profitable.
    And then let folks like evey make revenue for the deed holders.

    Hi Guys

    This is a good thread with good input from the community coming together and sharing their experience as of late, lets not bitch at each other. we all have opinions, lets just keep it positive and respect each others opinions and not throw sarcastic remarks around its petty, Some are doing well, good on them. a lot are feeling something is not right and needs to be looked at so lets just respect each others input and go forward and keep the thread and input alive in a positive way.

    Btw im one of the latter.

    Remember if you start accusations sarcasm and what not it will derail the thread and it will end up getting closed and guess what brushed under the carpet. The very thing we are not trying to let happen right?

    Regards
    Tees

    No offense but if you're using Songkra Corrosive Dagger and Spakbite, if you keep mentioning good dpp (especially with these crappy tools) when talking about tt return, you do need hunting advice....

    How about when at 91% you also try to ask for players that actually do well in TT what are they doing right?
    Not long ago you were saying you only care about skills and progression - it's probably time you switch your strategy if you now care for TT.

    I agree, 91% isn't playable at all, no matter the gear or markup, everything below 94%(med term) is terrible for a proper hunter (that wants to be self sustainable). Your 91% is probably a mix of many mistakes it seems while Xen's low return is a very bad period that's most likely going to pass sooner or later (we've all been there) since he has decent skills and equipment and game knowledge.
    No matter the experience or what you hunt (save always hunting on 4+% taxed land) anyone should be able to hunt with 55-65 efficiency and get 95% tt return in the long run. I did after loot 2.0 killing many, many mobs. Things have changed, at least for me and seemingly for a number of others. I'm now hunting with 79% efficiency and I'm still getting the unusual loot behavior.

    You may just be one of the few expection who do have fine loot by coincidence.

    Or possibly if you read the rest of what he's saying you might be able to infer that perhaps the problem is not the loot system but the player. It's almost like he's implying that the way to get better results is through better gear, skills, and knowledge of the game (weird, that's exactly what MA tells us also). By the way, this applies to all levels of play, and you don't have to be an uber to succeed.

    Every time there's one of these community whine threads and a top player gives advice it's always dismissed as "yea you're a lucky toon" or "you just spend more than we do", because it doesn't fit with the narrative that everyone who isn't doing well has created for themselves. You can pick any of these threads (there's plenty of them) and you will always find a lot of comments along the lines of "the thing I have been doing for x months/years that worked no longer is working, the system is broken". I don't think y'all want the truth, tbh, you just want MA to give you better returns without you having to adapt to a game that is constantly changing.

    I have a working theory on what was changed. Need to run some more test but it appears they changed the formula on Efficiency and how Dpp works I am guessing some time around end of Oct where we started to see a variance in returns.

    Going to start doing some test today and hopefully we can nail down the new system that was implemented.

    I was going to type out what I found that is different but on my way to test it some more before we get into the specifics.
