    couple of hundreds updates? you just took two single events, which in terms of EU is just like a snowflake in hell and means nothing really.

    You wanted couple of hundreds discoveries per day? Do you realize the volume you're talking about? Maybe your expectations are a bit unreal?

    Don't get me wrong, i'd love to see more items in loot windows too, especially in my loot windows. But David has already stated that new items take their time to get into the system, and the steady flow of discoveries proves him right. Last time i checked there were more than 2 of them too.

    its simple , initial drops have been made , more will drop when the current ingame tt of these items have been worn down to a level only known by MA.

    There is a misunderstanding. I meant I have seen a couple of hundred updates with the afterwards loot drops. UL amps for miners some will remember. I didn't mean, I want hundreds of new items after an update.

    I was referring to how MA is letting items into the system, especially special and rare ones. Those are put into the "loot pool" of a specific mob and are not released on a calculated basis.

    And with couple of hundreds I meant the examples where nothing happened for months and after an update suddenly few items appear. And SGA was the last explicit good example for this loot distribution method.

    Read my previous post. It is just an example, but it fits the picture. People been killing hundreds and thousands of mobs since start. Update and couple of hours later next items is "discovered". Discovery + rare item is just a mere coincidence in this example. It doesn't mean that discoveries all in all are handled the same way. It is just mere wishful thinking that the system is handing it out.

    Best chance to get such items is always short after an update.
