MvP Drop rate

Postby Paternoster » 2019-11-03 03:34 (Sunday)

Hi,

I just checked some MvP's.

I think those Droprate's are to high and unhealthy for the server.

What do you people think about it?

The MVP item drop rate is already lower than rates, and the MVP card drop rate is 0.5x... how low do you want it to go?

MVP card drop rate is 1x.

I have no idea where you got the 0.5x from.

The official server software has had an off-by-one error since time immemorial that results in an additional 1/10,001 on all drop rolls. 2/10,001 (~0.02%) was always the minimum possible drop rate.

Emulator devs decided pretty early on to not faithfully emulate that bug, and because private servers ended up being way more popular than officials, most people's perception of official drop rates was based on an unofficial bugfix that was never implemented on AEGIS. I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with having the rarest possible drop be half the official drop rate; I just think it's kind of silly when people suggest that it's "not rare enough" when it was less rare in the only "definitive" version of the game.

I also heard of that. 0.01% was not "possible" on officials.

But even so, the rates for MVP / Boss Cards here are 1x. So it's either 0.01% or 0.02%, not 0.05% (like the usual card drops).
This is rare enough for me. Consider that MVPs are not like normal monsters that you can kill all day long. Also considering the competition
you may kill a certain MVP maybe 1-3 times a day (depending on the respawn time).
So the MVPs are rare themselves and their card drop rate is even lower than that of normal monsters. Making these cards pretty damn rare!
Lowering these droprates (which is not even an option?) would be insane.
