    As the title say, I got that message 22 times in row, I was wondering if this was a bug or intended? It is the first time I've ever had that message more than 2-3 times in a row, however after getting the same message 5 times in a row I thought maybe I was just being unlucky, I kept going and I realized after 22 times in a row something had to be wrong and I immediately stopped my hunt. This happend around 23:20 CET. I was hunting the mob Zadul.

    We have been having severe server problems today. If you encounter anything odd about your loot too many NRFs, no loots, amount too low then stop. If the loots are too high, then keep playing but realize it's just a dream and might as well enjoy yourself until you wake up.

    This seems to be happening all over the Universe, there is a thread on another forum about no looters Frescoquda and furor and I had a soc mate who had 13 no looters in a row but can't remember if it was atrox, feffoid or maffoid so seems to be no pattern to this and happening across planets and mobs, I personally have not had this but then again I have not been doing much hunting this week except a 2 hour feffox hunt on Tuesday where we hit over 1000 ped in 8 globals in 2 hours .............. oh damn wait maybe we got all the loot from everyone elses no looters ............. sorry....... nothing to see here - move onn

    Last time we had it, it was the whole of Ark with nothing giving loot. We got compensation a few days later.

    Taht was a bit different... in that case no mobs gave any loot at all. This is something more like extreme lag (those peds spent on probes and ammo may not actually have been spent at all after relog).

    Well I noticed a huge drop on newbies mobs like gallard and carabok also noticed similar thing happening on Halix, b4 new interface patch I used to get average 300 animal hide from any of these mobs on a 3h hunt, also mob specific hide in same time average 100. The day of the patch mobs started dropping dilluted sweat and all other loots kinda shrunk. Highest no loot I had from these mobs were 2 in a row, yesterday I got 3, so I'm not that bad luck, now maybe with the introducing of these new loots something might be messed on loot table.

    It might have something to do with the "hardcap" on loot MA has now (secretly?) imposed due to some exploits highlighted here: LINK

    This hidden cap is easily another way of giving out even lower payouts (under guise of "safety & security") to players - even if players were "due" for their share of loots after a bad spells.

    Can you give more information? I don't see anything in that link that hints to what you speak of.

    I wouldn't take much notice of a drop in loot right after a vu. Remember we've got the new Ark Underground and Calypso *cough* MA - 'please don't leave our planet' *cough* are running another robot event.

    I did my usual Halix run over the week end in my usual area and got a 95% tt return so afaik it's normal but they've adjusted the loot tables again. The diluted sweat might be ahead of a further update for the new vehicles? That or they've noticed that the there's a lot of unused hides clogging up the system and they've switched in the sweat to offset it.

    I think he means this

    I see, so complete speculation based on a day with lots of server problems.

    Is that why I have been getting terrible loot on Jori and lots of globals on galliard carabok and halix?

    EDIT: I take back what I wrote above, my first HoF today :D
