Be careful writing tickets (Maybe)

    Maybe I'm just being paranoid, I started playing a couple of months ago. I like the game. Server's are the worst by far I've never been dc'ed so many times from a game but I can live with that.

    Anyway someone reported me for not liking what I said to them, they whispered me and didn't want to shut up so I felt whatever they got by day two they deserved and had no right to complain about anything I said. I complained quite to them that day. So far so good, whatever right.

    Since then I'm convinced they set the fail rate for my account lower than normal. I have no problem getting all my gear to duo, I think the highest stack I needed was 24. I decided to enchant the lord godr sphera since it will most likely be a while before I can get a dande or upgrade it. Still pretty poor as I'm building up the worker empire. So I got it to +12 with a few fails starting at 10 fs when I hit +10. Well I hit 28 fs trying to get it +13 and from what I read decided it would be best to try for a tri attempt on my liverto staff, failed and downgraded, expected it really so no biggie, I had a backup plan to get back to duo, I had an advice of valks +25 I sent to an alt and started to try enhanting from there back to duo, I hit 34, switched back to my main, then hit 35 fs, I had one more valks +15, went to another alt and just said screw it, I'll eat the cost and start from here, hit 42 on this one, still PRI. Went back to the main, tried 3 more times, then the alt tried 2 more times. At this point I have 3 character all from 43 to 47 fs. By this point I spent all the silver I had repairing the staff so I decided that was enough for that one, plus the sharps were running low. I still had about 80 black stone weapons and decided to make another alt and try to at least get my lord godr sphera passed +12, +15 I was hoping for, I had 3 more sphera and some artisans, used agerian armor +14 to build 16 fs stacks, and started to attempt the upgrades, stopped at 29 fs on the sphera since I used the 3 spheras I had to repair it and couldn't get passed that +12 for some reason.

    Now I might just be mixing things up in my head due to the RNG hangover. But it did occur to me that I haven't got a single thing to upgrade since I sent them a bunch of tickets. I'm not kidding or being paranoid about that, could be coincidence. Looking through charts and past upgrade attempts from other people, I've definitely exceeded what is probable, not impossible to happen but highly improbable.

    Like I said, it could be all in my head. I'm broke now so it will be a minute before I can get the silver and stones to try any upgrades. This is not a complaint about the RNG, it is pretty brutal in this game. I started with a ton of stones and sharps and all duo and ended up my staff PRI and no more silver or stones, I have the fail stacks on 4 characters but if my theory is right, they might not be good for anything. So take it as a warning when writing tickets to these people. I'll give and update on the exact number it takes for me to get back to a DUO staff or past +12 on the sphera and the next time I try my hand at the Black Desert Casino

    OK, imagine you are the one that would influence the chance for people.

    Imagine, I'm about to enchant a Grunil armor from DUO to TRI at 30 FS.

    Do you set it to succeed or fail? How do you know what I want? Do I want more FS, or do I want the TRI armor?

    It's true, if you're an *******, they make the game impossible to enjoy.

    But that's because it's impossible for you to enjoy anything.

    Well you should probably learn how to comprehend what you read before you answer, just makes you look stupid. I said specifically I'm enjoying the game, and also stated this isn't a complaint. I think you mistaken my post from your last diary entry.

    There is a set a chance to succeed an enhancement I'm guessing, the fail stacks just offset this base value. If you set the value lower the offsets are minimized also. It's globally %1 but I can imagine there would already be a system to adjust the base value. Doesn't seem to hard to imagine that they could change the base value for individual players in either direction.

    I might be missing some sarcasm but 30FS for TRI is perfectly decent and is in fact pretty lowish.

    It's random, no one is out to get you lol
    I got 20-30 fs on a +9 Ultimate Lightswallowing vediant 3 times before I sold it. It just didn't want to go +10.
    Meanwhile my kzarka went to +15 with maybe 10 fs total between +13 to +15, went from 0 to +12 with single taps.

    I agree, and my past experience would confirm that. I'm sitting in the mid 40's on 3 characters in attempts to get back to DUO, and +29 trying to get a lord godr sphera past +12

    Why would they spend time developping that?

    Could be right, I did say my conspiracy theory might have been a result from the RNG hangover. But it is odd since the tickets I have not been able to succeed in a single enhancement.

    I don't think they would have too. I'm a software developer myself, I don't make games but I have 20 years in the business, 8 as senior developer. It would be something that would have to be innately introduced for the buffs and fs stacks.

    I guess you didn't understand.

    Being "lucky" can mean both, you succeed enhancing the item, or you fail. It depends on the situation, it's only in your head, nobody can ever know if you want to stack more FS, or want the current item going up. Seen plenty of comments "grats" in guild chat where the guys replied "but I wanted the FS".

    There are also plenty of threads in the forum of people who complain they can't build FS and are "unlucky" because of that. They WANT to fail. How would you adjust the chance here? Is not possible.

    There is no sarcasm, they lowered enchant successful rate. Done TRI green awa weapon yesterday, its gone TRI on 45 FS, got some stack of 40+FS left.

    Yeah it feels like there has to be a reason, that's how human brains work. It's hard for us to accept coincidence, luck and misfortune, we always look for a logical explanation, reasons, culprits, but it's just rng. I haven't sent a single ticket while I was upgrading both of my weapons.

    Again not saying this is the case. But if I was a GM that had the ability to change these values, if they looked at my account, I'm poor, barely got duo and no matts. I would assume, the fs stacks are going to be worthless to this player, at least for the moment. If I was to look at an account I think it would be easy to judge from their current state what they would benefit from and what will hurt. I don't mind the stacks, they will come in use one day. But that day will be a while at this rate which if I wanted to give someone a hard time, this is exactly what I would do.
