RNG Is Taking It's Toll On Me


19 posts in this topic

Posted

After 17 consecutive failures to TRI any piece of Grunil, I have achieved 86 FS. This amazing feat was then cut short when I accidentally double clicked. 86 FS down the drain only for a DUO piece of Grunil.

 

I figured, my luck can't be this bad.  People are getting TRI gear all day with 30-40 FS. It can't actually be this hard.

So I decided to TRI my Sura.

Keep the stack for Tet, you might regret it now, but when you wanna upgrade to tet later on you'll regret not having gotten those stacks.

Just makes me sad how progression is 100% luck. You can play the game like a full time job and still be behind people who got lucky.

You should just be buying the gear straight up already enchanted tbh.

 

I mean if you are going to make as many mistakes as that, you shouldn't really be enhancing, at least not until you learn the system better. That was just a massive waste.

Also this

6 months of agony only to achieve this. TFW your progression falls behind purely because of "luck"
There needs to be a system implemented to help the unlucky people.

It was a unlucky enchant day for you.  You should have stopped and tried again tomorrow or another day.

Congratulations. You're another player that may be sitting on the wrong end of the bell curve of an enchanting system with no fail safes.

People will either downright deny your existence, tell you to man up our congratulate you.

Ive lost hundreds of mills in seconds, youll get over it, what i would recommend to do is grind and save money,buy a piece of gear and Enchant when you feel like you can afford it

Yes and no. RNG is a huge factor in BDO obviously. Although the average player has gear directly related to how much they have played. Theres a very small population who actually had overly good luck or overly bad luck. 

People always call people who have the high enchants "lucky" but many times theyve failed a number of times trying to enchant that item but kept trying and got it after a few attempts.

So, did you do one sitting of tri attempts or was it. 2 attempts failed, a day later 3 attempts fail, 2 days later 1 attempt etc. It makes a difference. Took me 7 attempts to get tet so yeah imagine my horror.

I also feel so down with enchanting...It's harder for me to build failstacks and also enchanting pieces I want to TRI. Whenever I try to get stacks, the RNG either succeeds my fodder into becoming +15 any stacks below 20 or 40 stacks isn't even enough to get TRI on any of my equipment. It's like the result I want gets flipped and it's frustrating.

Still sitting at 60 FS and contemplating if I should go for TET for my awakening or not.

Why do you all people call this a RNG? THIS IS NOT RNG. 

It is an algorithm that can be messed with by developers, same goes for those retarded electric roulette. IT is not REAL RNG. It never have been.

Real RNG is when you throw two dices, and they randomly fall on certain number.

This "RNG" is computed that will ALWAYS take more than it gives. ALWAYS. And if they want ( and they already do it ) just put it to give player 0.00000001% of everything and yu will get nothing.

Because of damn FALSE RNG, game put me behind for 6 months. Nothing makes sense, and many crap here doesn't work ( node lvl's, profession lvl's, creep knowledge levels ), it is all bullshit which is concerned good to be "not seen" by the players, so they can argue of it's worth. 

Hidden shit in game is there so they can do whatever they want. 

For one year in game, it get me to the starting point more than it should, and every day i cry that i didn't know i should just collect the cash and spend it when item arrives that i need. So, if i want to be competitive with my gear, and game DOES NOT give me that with stupid casino RNG, what else there is? If game never gives at least ONE good enchant, i will always be underpowered, and that is the whole point of this RNG. Difficulty in this game is FALSE, it is not made by RNG, it is made by people which had given orders to make it so. I am so glad that some people can RNG their way to TET and PEN, but for MOST people, that is not the case, and they are SCREWED for years before they get competitive. 

Such a stupid design.

It would be so much better, with less nerves destroyed in the process, if i knew that i just needed to save money.

At the end, i learned a valuable lesson, that games with this kind of "enchantment" ( see: casino ) are pure cash grabs, sadly, and content is less important than addiction to gambling. Which we all have here, game which plays on your addiction to gambling, which we all have...and for my part, in the future, will greatly avoid these kinds of games, even if combat is good as in this one.

yep, RNG in game never is "real" RNG.

But it doesnt change that the success is random, and even more random since we dont know at all the real algorithm used => more practical to just say "RNG" then ;)

 

But agree tho, that's a crap cash grab design.

I've had my fair share of failed TRI attempts, the last time I went for TRI was on my Kzarka Blade and I failed 13 times with over 60 failstacks.

Now I literally just buy everything TRI and above off the marketplace, cba going through that hell again, especially with accessories
