count me in...in the tinfoil hat crowd....

I think you are all being totally naieve if you don't think unannounced things are tweaked and tried all the time.

in fact...I think botman actually admitted to it....answering some direct questions I put to him on this forum....lemme see if I can find the post.

I have no problem with it at all....makes for a better, more interesting game

but c'mon...
Gear Up weekends
Loot hunt
vermi hotfix

heck the "Golden Rain" day is the easiest one to point to.

the capability is clearly there and if you DON'T think it is being used....well...I got land in Florida to sell ya....cheap.

Again....I have zero issues with it.

You may differ from that opinion...that is fine by me...remind me to invite you to my poker games on Saturday night....

I just again state that it isn't efficient to do so. What would the point be to do so? Nothing would be learned from unwitting beta testers.

Rhetorical question, and I will bow out as well.

With the official release of WB Island being about 3 weeks away, how good would it be to use the Hotfix system to have another gearup event on the weekend prior to its release.

Increase the chance of tubbies spawning and increase their pearl drop rates, we're gonna need something to take out the might Craw Jnr!

All that would be required is an internet connection, no tinfoil hats needed... unless someone uses a tinfoil hat connect to the net I guess.

And right now they could do some behind the scenes hot fixes to LLM drop rates. They over-nerfed their drop rates at some un-recorded point, and could certainly use a hot-fix buff.
I can't even put it into words how much it pisses me off when people in games that involve the use of a RNG have absolutely no understanding of statistics and can't go a day without stringing together some insane conspiracy theory about droprates or conceive some ridiculous interpretive dance ritual that they believe can affect a random system. Get a freaking education. Just because you're unlucky doesn't mean that statistics is invalidated.

Ive asked nicely twice now to not use this topic to discuss drop rate conspiracies as it has nothing to do with the OP.

Third times a charm.

Locked.
