It's official, I now tentatively believe that Tuesday's mysterious server reset removed the infamous "modified loot" for mining on Arkadia. Since yesterday I've been wondering at the low returns at GMC, now down to typically 80% or so on normal runs, and the rate of globals has dramatically increased. So what does this mean for us? Unless we're just having a weird couple of days, I expect the chance of a very large loot (2k+ ped) while mining unamped from here on to be decreased, while you can expect to find loots between 20 ped and a couple hundred ped a lot more often. I also expect a little lower overall return, but not lower than, say 95%, long term TT return. IIRC, pre-January global rates were somewhere around 1-3 globals per 1000 ped (unamped) probes and a 1k stretch without globals was unusual, and I'm assuming this is what it will be like once again. It's been almost 6 months of modified loot... and for my own mining, I know I do prefer the old-style (which I think is back again now). Mining is not the most exciting profession and it's good to see more swirls. It's bad news though for those who have been mining on only a few hundred ped budget or less.
