    Oh wow when i read the patch notes thought it would work differently, not a chance for a +1 fs... If it was +5 fs it could be usable by more players.

    You can see the "displayed chance" for the upgrade. That does not mean it matches the actual calculation or the actual code is correct. However, there is plenty of evidence to know that fail stacks do have an impact on enchants. The only thing you could claim is the actual chance differs from the displayed chance.

    Let me put on my Titanic ship sized tinfoil hat and say that I strongly believe in this statement.

    This is not to say that I am poking fun at the statement. Quite the contrary. Put another way, there are values that succeed in enhancing that have no earthly reason to be succeeding. All I have is empirical observational data. Nothing beyond anecdotal, so it's more of a personal collection than anything that's a derivative of extensive and exhaustive scientific study. Take it seriously at your own risk.

    That disclaimer out of the way for those eagerly salivating for the tin hat rebuttal, BDO displayed values for success on enhancement don't align with reality. For all we know, it's merely a placebo that resembles the claw machine effect: the game spits out success after some predefined event/step function. Probably why we get inundated by fail/success SPAM in chat as soon as we log on for the very first time for enticement.

    It took a small army including a spec op trained monkey and butterfly to gain this incredible footage. Many of us didn't make it out alive on that mission. Our sincerest condolences to the families of the slain.

    ...Whats the math on double the chance of RNG?

    It went from either you hit or miss, to either you miss or hit?

    This is a gamblers fallacy, and the best part is they got it right from the casino handbook of "capping bets" by capping the FS you can devour to 200, just to make sure no one got to 100%, Not only that...They added another layer of RNG to the fact that once that lil % of a chance, to add a rng FS dips below 100%... ts rng, to rng, to get a FS, to RNG a successful enhance! ROFL!.

    I can see it now..People actually thinking they can find the cheapest way to build FS....and for what, to get to that Paywall bottle neck again..If only they dished out $X they think they will be ahead of the masses, and figured something out.

    Everyone still playing obviously defied the odds..Casinos are designed that way to keep you.
    The % are BS, its hit or miss. RNG..If you cant stomach gambling...Then this is the incorrect outlet.

    I have an addiction..Whats everyone else's problem here?

    Are you drunk or...?
    "SIlver buyers gotta suffer", if you think people will use this function for a legitimate way to inch their stack 1 at a time you are mistaken. As I stated earlier to is cheaper to roll with the traditional way of stacking. Not to mention the odds are better to tap the traditional way. The old devour system was even cheaper than the current one making it a coin sink people used.

    "Go PlAy wOw" lol what? Dont say stupid things, makes you look stupid.

    Casino's do not try to sell you things in a cash shop, including useless items bundled with wanted items for a "discount", with the intend to make you believe you will be able to play better the more you buy.

    Casino's are honest and let you know up in front they have an edge (due to large numbers effect). They even let you know gambling is addictive and where to get help if you feel addicted.

    PA does not even acknowledge they run a gambling game and pretend there's nothing addictive to it.

    That post really shouldn't be liked by anyone. While many dislike the enchanting system, you can still be honest about it.

    You're essentially saying there is no difference between enchanting a PRI, TET, or PEN. That's just plain BS. If someone is going to spam cron stone attempts on a PEN they would be much better off with a higher fail stack.

    The chances are displayed in game. You see the exact percentage. Which will change in accordance to your fail stack. Even devour shows the chance of obtaining more stacks and how many.

    Are you still going off the blind system from so many months ago?

    Pretty clearly it's just another invitation for the uberwhales to pay2win via a RNG casino. Now you can spend tons of money to upgrade your FS if you want.

    But, you still didnt told me, what's the chance difference between 100 & 200 ?

    You will have to look up a chart or test that yourself. The chances will increase beyond 100 fail stacks.

    Link ? screen ? dont have the game installed anymore, since what you speak about are in game, guess its not hard for you to make screen.
    But whatever, if you dont provide all that, that discussion is worthless.

    I anyone have screen or so i would be interesting to see all that.

    That would require having 100 stack and 200 stack and loading the characters, posting the SS's etc. It would also only display 2 results. Go look up a simple fail stack chart.

    Also, BDO is a PVP game, we are not here to help each other. ;)
