    Heya,

    Not sure if I should post this in here or in wishlist....

    I already had a chat with Cyrus ingame about this but thought I'd post it in here for reference also.
    We need more items in loot! Not because then I get better returns or more fun, but for the sake of the economy. I tried to switch over to Arkadia only items but wasn't able to even complete one small hunting run before everything broke :D

    So far I've only looted 300PED weapon TT in ~10k PED spent, neither of those weapons are on auction to buy so I just hit a wall using Arkadia items due to availability :)

    So I think in order to get Arkadia to be a self sustainable Planet we need more availability (read droprate) in weapons, faps, armor parts to use. :)

    Maybe this will help explain some things:

    Yes, that's a valid point.

    But right now it seems MA needs a kick in the butt, I've gotten over 40 globals now and only 2 items total :O
    Seems extremely low to me, on Calypso when new items are added they drop quite frequent right after.

    I understand that discoveries may take some time tho. And I don't mind that at all.

    If it's correct, that the Arkadia items have a little better stats than other items, then this is the reason why they drop so slowly.

    If that is the case then there will be serious problems.... Really hope not!

    No, no problem, that would be logic:

    The better an item, the more rare it needs to be. That#s the idea of loot balancing.

    This means: Arkadia needs items with the same stats like an Isis LR32 and it will drop like mad.

    I had to go back to Calypso for exactly that reason.
    I couldnt hunt no more due to lack of weapons (L) and lack of faps.

    Now Im back on Calypso again and all is good. So MA really needs a big push.....

    Wishlist would work, but hope you don't mind it going over to the Feedback section for the team to see :)

    Well in my eyes it is a huge problem, because they either need to redesign ALL items they made (stats wise) or get MA to up the drop rate (which in such case is not likely to happen at all).
    Without the items dropping there's no possibility for Arkadia to be self sufficient.

    You're saying that like it's the first time :D

    They're not exactly better, more like stop gaps. The 200 series of weapons is really close to LR32-CB19's and they certainly don't seem to drop like crazy.

    Shame that happened which weapons and faps were lacking?

    The items on Arkadia have been checked for balance before the planet was launched, so that is not affecting the drop rate. Mindark are working on the droprate to ensure it is brought into balance - we are aware it is currently too low - so expect things to improve over the next few days.

    Yay. 25 Globals so far ( \0/ ) with only one item drop makes me a little sad :( Very few of the stackables have good MU

    So I'm looking forward to an adjustment in this area.

    In the mean time it has been a week since and still not even a single item drop.

    To me it looks like they are balancing it the wrong way :p

    yeah so far although i doubt im on par with anyone here the only things im getting from mobs are like a drop of leather but about 1 in 20 or so mobs, its getting a wee bit better i guess :D would be nice if there were more equipable drops although its hard to justify a monster carrying a gun :D

    yeah just idly standing on calypso and sometimes selling a few items. My bankroll is high enough now to return to Arkadia. However I don´t see the point right now since there is nothing else I could do there. I hope MA´ll fix the item droprate and the failed spam while hunting during the next week.
