    The PGF rate is ridiculous

    This probably will get nowhere, but had to vent so here we go. As the title states, the rate for PGF is ridiculous. I understand it was an easier drop in the beginning(don't feed me the "it's been the same rate all event long" bs), but the current rate it's at, 1/341, is just too ridiculous. I think this is about the worst rate it's ever been, or at least tied for it. Myself, and several others, are just way too demotivated to hunt PGF after seeing that stupid droprate, which is more than FIVE times what it started out as, at a rate of 1/64 as I was told by a GM that shall remain unnamed. PGF dropped way too often at first to be 1/341, now I barely see 1 drop per HH. This isn't asking for the rate to be changed, which would be nice, but just informing to whoever this may concern that the rate is just pure idiocy.

    The PGF rate is ridiculous

    It is really hard to believe it was 1/341 since start of event, but well I'm not complaining. I just think that anyone seeing this rate would really demotivate people. If it was a rate for a year round drop, nice, that would be okay, but that rate for an item that everyone desires and only drops for 1 month of the year in fact is insane. Would you think that it is fair that someone that waited a whole year to get their DW to wait for another year because the droprate is super high? How are people going to help others when it is unlikely that they will get a DW for themselves? Just some thoughs, only the owner of the server can decide things. I really don't see how many PGFs dropping can affect negatively the Larva's life... More people would be willing to sphere their DWs, increase Hit, etc, more people would be motivated to play and of course that would encourage donating etc. But the way things are going, this game is really becoming a pay-to-win thing. I really don't need anymore to lose nights of sleep to get what I wanted, but I care about the people who can't afford the "lovely dws" they wanted.

    Happy Hours are unevenly distributed in this event

    I'm posting this topic to demonstrate how in this years Xmas event so far, the Happy Hours have been distributed in a way that strongly disadvantages certain time zones, especially players who happen to have a "regular" schedule with a daytime job. I'll explain the table below. Samples were taken from the Happy Hours Alert! topic, based on my own time zone (CET/UTC+1) from which I then calculated the start times in a few other time zones (hope I didn't make any mistakes!). For the first two rows I can't list the HH start times anymore since the forum won't show the post time for entries which are older than just a couple of days - however I do know that I missed both HHs so the start times most likely weren't favourable. Times that I deem neutral (also taking into consideration whether it was weekend/holiday) are just grey, while favourable ones are green, so-so ones are various other shades of greenish/orange and red is just, well ... crap or "no can do". As you can see, things are quite uneven. I also included the Japan time zone just for sake of completion, though I have no idea how many players we have from that or neighbouring time zones. Seems the majority are from "the Americas". To illustrate my personal experience as one of the unlucky Central European players, out of the 30 total hours of HH time the event granted us thus far, I've only managed to catch maybe 4 or so - one reason being how Xmas celebrations already start on the 24th here so I was with my family when that HH started at 7 PM local time (I barely managed to catch the last hour of that). The only full HH I got was on the 25th, and that's because the night before, I jokingly asked a GM to give me my own "6 hour HH" after an unrelated in-game chat, so I was roughly aware of the time the next HH was going to take place. For all the other HHs - missed them, go figure.

    The PGF rate is ridiculous

    Alright, lets chime in again. But if we don't have PGF on the donation list, you can't pay to win it.... Definitely, considering we even had death threats over this whole thing (not exactly the PGF stuff), I'd say this has gone longer than it should. Comes down to money? ... should I remember you that PGF was on the donation list. You (and everyone else) can say it's all about money all day long but makes no sense for larva to remove one of the most donated items (when it was available) if it was all about money. Also, look at what yanvbraz said, if he lowers the rate people will get lots of pgfs and want to increase atts and hit on their new DWs.. so what's that? oh yeah more money but wait a second... its not all about money. Why can't you guys have an easier rate? because is not a saber what you will be getting. So yeah, it might not be "whatever the community is happy with", (because some won't be happy until it's rate is 2/1), but it definitely is not "what gets me more money".

    The PGF rate is ridiculous

    I did like 150+ runs mostly during HH and saw exactly 0 drop in a game I was in when everyone thought it was an easy drop, and my thought was that a few people just got lucky and the rate was in fact probably very difficult. I got burned out soloing 32 minute RTs for a guaranteed chance to get one if it dropped or doing 20 minute 2-4 man RTs for a lower chance of getting one if it dropped. Seeing that the rate is 1/341 just reinforces my belief that some people were very fortunate and now that people aren't getting very lucky, it just seems the rate is harder. I promise there were plenty of other people that did 100+ runs almost all during HH very early in the event that got no PGF. I haven't played in over a week and don't really plan to play again for a while, getting nothing from Olga for a hundred hours of grinding (and the horse shit of getting 4 noob/hp total from over 120 presents) took the fun out of the game for me. Maybe Valentine's or Easter. If I had known it was 1/341 from the start, I doubt I would've even bothered trying to get one. For some people it's worth it to run hundreds of RTs, to me it's not. If 1/341 was a year round drop rate that would be fine and I'd be cool running a bunch of RT now and then until I got one. For one event I just feel forced to do 1 quest to the point that I'm not enjoying the game any more.

    The PGF rate is ridiculous

    Last year's rate was 1/348 (before it went to 1/204) so this is slightly better. Also is that 1/64 rate during hh or not? Because I highly highly highly highly highly doubt that during hh, they would have the most coveted item in the game at 1/21 during hh. I'm gonna assume it was 1/64 WITH hh which would bring the normal rate to 1/192, easier than last year's second rate. What I think happened was, they set it at 1/192 thinking a slightly better rate would make everyone happy and also not flood the server with a billion new DWs. What Larva or whoever may have forgotten was, was that now we have the individual drop system. That is a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE reason why so many dropped at the beginning of the event. Before this system, everyone who was well geared just solo'd because the runs were faster and the item was guaranteed and you don't have to wait on anyone. Weaker people however, had to team up to hunt and everyone just waits their turn, solo with terrible times, or just not hunt at all. But with the individual drop system, EVERYONE no matter how under geared, can hunt a pgf. So with that in mind, with more people hunting, comes a lot more PGFs. More than what our overlords may have wanted. They see that now and have to fix the rate before everyone on the server has a DW and the whole fun of playing to acquire one is completely meaningless. dw edit: Personally, and I've said this before, I believe PGF SHOULD be very very hard to get. I got mine hunting at the same rate everyone else is. People can deny it all they want but most people's end goal is to achieve a DW. That is the driving force, the ultimate accomplishment, of the game. If I never got a PGF, I wouldn't complain. I would keep on playing until I hit that goal. Lastly, I find it funny that people who DO have DWs complain about the rate. I mean, if it dropped for you (and a bunch of others), it must not be all that bad huh? So in closing...... 1. NO the rate is not ridiculous. Its difficult but it has been attained by many many people. 2. You have one so why complain? 3. Its the ultimate goal of the game, it should not be easy. 4. dw

    GoodBye

    I don't even know how to start a topic like this.. I guess I should begin with who I am. Hi my name is ZombieTheGreat0 and my ign is Roxas. I've been a long time player all the way back to the GameCube. I put around 1000+ hours into it before I just abruptly stopped. 8 years later, I found that there are private PSO networks where you can play with people. As soon as I saw it, I jumped at the opportunity to enjoy my childhood game once again. Just like when I first started, I was swept away for hours on end. I was so enthrilled to be in the world of PSO again. Eventually I met someone named Raze. I didn't know what to think of Raze at the time. Yet overtime, I grew to look up to him. He was an excellent example of the community. He was kind, gracious, generous, and a all around amazing friend. I don't know if Raze thought of me as much of a friend to be honest. Knowing my self far to well, I thought I would mess up horribly. But I guess he was a friend since he stuck by whenever I needed help, helped me farm for powerful gear, gave me gear as well. But just like last time, I suddenly stopped. Sadly, it wasn't because I grew board of my childhood game. Lots of my irl friends left me, I was diagnosed with depression, and even started cutting myself after a few months. In time, I made many new friends and luckily my life started turning around for the better. During all the depression, anxiety, fear, and rejection, I played from time to time on PSO. It definitely helped playing a game with a dedicated and kind community. I guess what i'm trying to say is people don't realize how big of an impact they have in other people's lives. Whether your just a friend keeping in touch or someone you talk with on a regular basis. All of you amazing people, I have but one thing to say. Thank you. Thank you for the memories. Thank you for being generous. Thank you for being you.. Even though i'm saying goodbye, I am so happy to have these memories of my friends. I know I won't be remembered once I leave. But I did want everyone to know i'm thankful. Goodbye... And Thank You...

    The PGF rate is ridiculous

    Well, about the pay-to-win it's not exactly paying to the server. That is more a problem about economy, not about the rate. I mean new users buying things from veterans offering exorbitant ammounts of DTs or an whole arsenal for a DW/PGF. But that is not Larva's fault, it is the player base fault, we were responsible for this crap on economy. Some people blame the new users willing to spend lots of money, but don't they buy things from veterans? Again, that is all about economy, which isn't the focus of this thread. But the hypocrisy is people that already got PGFs this year is complaining more. They want to make a whole set of DWs this event lol. Past years I only got 1 PGF and I was really happy getting my first DW. In all these years of Ultima, I NEVER got any STA in anniversary events, always unlucky. I used to complain a lot years ago, but after all, getting items is all about probability, can't blame the rates. But I can't blame anyone after all, that is how probabiblity works and all that matters is your luck. Yes, the rate is really high for a item that you only have 3 weeks to get, but No, it is not impossible to get at least one. At least you will get x237948 Tablets or Heart of Morolians But yes, if you really want a DW, you will focus on getting one no matter how difficult it is, you have to put your mind in getting one. If it was a easy rate, would you be happy seeing everyone that barely started on the server using a DW? Would you be happy to see someone spamming a 25% hit Dark Meteor the whole quest and being OHKO by a monster/boss because said person doesn't own a decent shield/armor/mag/other weapons? Would you be happy to see people with much less time of gameplay having better gear than you that took years to get your desired items? I know people here with less than 1 year of Ultima that already have top-tier gears of every class, which even the veterans can't afford. All we can do really is to enjoy the grind. And to be really honest, I really find a bad idea to release droptables. First, it doesn't really give the idea of how easy/difficult an item is to get and becomes a reason for complaining like we can see in this thread. Just a droptable showing where it drops is already good, but putting numbers is really bad. People really gets impressed fast by numbers. Some people no matter how you explain will believe you need to do 341 runs to get a PGF

    The PGF rate is ridiculous

    I mean, I always tend to play devils advocate for this stuff. On one hand, it's a drop rate for a 1 time a year drop that takes an upwards of 40 minutes (if you're solo for some people) to do. That sounds plain scandalous. But on the other hand, it IS an item that can make the best weapons in the game. At this point I think the it is the overwhelming fact that the cons outweigh the pros for this drop. There's nothing cool about making a boss drop 1/341 1 time a year for 2 weeks. Idk, but I think we all know that at the end of the day complaining about it wont matter because Larva doesn't really care and the GM's wont speak out against Larva anyways.

    Obviously it's luck, but 580 runs and 180 during HH which makes it 940 "normal" runs, 5 of them out of HH. All you guys talk about is HH, I hunted it outside of HH unlike literally most of the server. You won't bring me down trying to downplay what I did. Being motivated to only hunt during HH is lol

    Your character still has all their hair, so there is clearly much room to improve still. I rate this run as Hit me up if you want training. We will do 100 Squidy Situps, 100 Delbiter Pushups, 100 Sinow Squat thrust jumps, and run 10 Kilometers through the Seabed each day.

    Ideas to improve the server - feel free to post!

    How about a rule against commenting in S> B> A> threads if they have nothing to do with buying or selling. Also no inputs on what you think it's worth or why are you buying it for so much/little, causing drama. Shit needs to stop, growing up or not people will continue to cause drama unless action is taken and a rule is in place to prevent it.
