  1. Have you only been killing it with red weapons? Because if so, no shit it dropped with a red wep final hit.
  2. Okay, so, I feel a little bad about just disliking and carrying on, so I'm going to pick this post apart a little. Do you have data for this? Unless you've seen and logged every PGF drop, this can't be verified, which spreads misinformation. We've had confirmed drops from (I think) every ID - but results will be skewed by what the more popular IDs are. I'd hazard a guess that Pinkals have gotten less PGF this event, simply because there's less of them to begin with. Saying Pinkal drop chance is lower would be wrong. Apart from anything, having the drop rate be higher or lower on one ID would be a monumentally dumb decision, because if it was ever found out, the community would be livid that they'd wasted their time on characters with a lower drop chance without even knowing. I mean, I'll admit there are a number of things we don't know about the PSO code, but it's relatively easy to extrapolate what some parts might or might not do. Even with just the basic stuff I've looked at in terms of drops suggests that it's literally just a drop chance. I'm not quite sure what you're trying to say here. I don't think there's much about a 20 year old game that people would think to be unbelievable, considering the games we have nowadays. As for the second part, are you suggesting that server is sentient in that it decides who gets drops, or that we're psychic and can influence drops by wanting it really hard? I'm... not going to go into that. Ignoring the somewhat obnoxious wording of the first sentence, I can't imagine that people have hidden a "secret way of getting item drops" into the game. Apart from it being stupidly complex for any game, so many people have tinkered with the game over the years that it'd have come to light. Even entertaining the notion that doing specific things gets you a higher drop chance, how would the mods and admins here code that? Congrats on the epiphany, I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Did you ever watch Avatar: The Last Airbender? There's an episode in there with a fortune teller, who tells one dude he'll meet the love of his life when he's wearing red shoes. So he always wears red shoes. And, surprise surprise, he meets his love when he's wearing red shoes. In Pokemon, people used to say that holding Down + B when catching Pokemon would increase the capture rate. It didn't, but people captured Pokemon whilst holding it down. Correlation does not equal causation. You're basing this on an incredibly small sample size. We'd be starting on the basis of one drop (yours) and the word of your friend, who... well, I'm not giving that any credibility. How do we test it? Even if you got more drops using red weapons, there's no way to have a control group to compare results to. There's no way to get a sample size big enough to produce accurate results. We'd need tens of thousands of runs. All in all, I can safely say that the drop rate is highly unlikely to be influenced by weapon type, run time, class, time on the server, age of character, how many backflips your character did in the Olga fight, or anything else.
  3. I don't think PSO even has the code to be able to do this. PGF (and any rare) has the drop chance, and that's it. It's just luck, and people's natural need to rationalise that makes ideas like this. Apart from anything, it's a 20 year old game that's been picked apart by modders and coders for a long time. Someone would have noticed and said something by now. It's random. Luck is luck.

  5. XBOX One controller issue/PSO questions

    Hey there. Welcome to the forums. I've no experience of PSO2, so I'll try to answer as best I can. The right analogue stick, to my knowledge, does nothing. It's a bit of a pain. If you have the default pad bindings, hitting down on your left stick should move you backwards, or towards the camera. If left and right actually turn you without moving, that's something I have no experience with, and would recommend the default setup. The default pad does (for some reason) have B and X flipped, so you'd need to reset those. "Dodging" in PSO is basically timing the backwards move to move out of range momentarily whilst the enemy attacks. It requires a bit of timing (and someone who can explain this better) but what essentially happens is: Enemy telegraphs attack > tap back > enemy misses > tap forwards > kick the shit out of them. That all takes place within a second or so. Give me a shout if you need any more help =)
  6. Few more questions, basically to make up my mind between a FOmarl or a FOnewearl Is Lindcray better for a FOmarl? I seem to recall that it was, but I can't remember why. Also, is a Psycho Bridge worth it? How obvious is the health drain?
  7. More quick questions! 1. Why can't I seem to unlock more of the standard offline quests? I've done everything up to Gran Squall, but the others aren't unlocked. I've defeated the Sil Dragon, but the Principal wasn't there when I went to brag about it. 2. I'm aiming to get some DTs to support the server, but can't decide what to get. What's good for someone who's mostly undergeared? I have Sange & Yasha, which I'm enjoying. Probably looking to get units, maybe. 2.5 Is it better to trade with players or ask an admin to cash in the DTs? Many thanks again!
  8. Many thanks! PSO always pulls me back in, no matter when or where. I always have fun, solo or in a community. I'm aiming to make some friends, so hopefully will see you around =)
  9. Returning player here after a few years break. Memory is shot, so here goes. 1. Is the server vanilla? I've run across a lot of rare mobs already, so was just curious! 2. Do people want/need a semi-support player? I like playing FOnewearl as a heal/buff/set-everything-on-fire class, and wouldn't mind getting into groups to help out. 3. What sort of quests/runs should I be doing? I've done some of the TTF stuff, but not much otherwise. 4. Is there anything you'd tell a newbie/returning player? Thanks in advance!
  10. I'd definitely be on board with the two-bank-tellers thing. It makes life a lot easier, just being able to talk to different people to get different banks.
  11. Hi!

    Heya. I'm Amzer. I'm back to PSO after a year or so away from a certain other server that shall not be named, but shall certainly be mismanaged into the ground. I used to play PSO on GC and XBox back in the day. I'll currently be maining three(!) toons, Rico, my HUnewearl, Emily, my RAcaceal and Slaughter, my FOnewearl. Feel free to join me for anything, I'll be doing lots of stuff! A big, BIG thank you to everyone who has already helped me out on the server. the community here is amazing, and I can't wait to be a part of it for a long time.
