Following (another) talk drenched in silliness on chats, i thought this needed to be done.
Its just sad to see how misunderstood people are.
"Its MA fault!" - "Devs are robbing us!" - "I cant make money, sky is falling!"
Ill keep it short.
Theres many parameters as for why you lose money.
Dont be upset, but its your fault.
Game is based on decisions.
Your build your avatar to fit your goals. Step out of these, and your finished.
Weither its MA, or PPs, in the end, they opening doors at you, and its for YOU to decide if you want in. If so, its for you to decide if you want to fight for it. (two decisions from you before even shooting).
Other tax being, crafting keys, looting parts, any access.
On the actual case, was about cards instances.
You buy a lifetime access (tax) to the caves, and pay no more.
This tax non existing, then is reflected in tax as "others".
So yes, loot is bad, but its not.
Is it really what you want? Why do you want it? Why am i getting these returns? Why no one else is doing it?
Theres an explanation, and its for you to work for it.
Last note about MU.
MU is NOT decided by MA or the "devs". Is created by the players, for the players.
Rarity needs to be balanced though.
If someone is trying to make money, and try a price, and player 2 wants this so badly, Player 2 will pay, Player 1 make money, and set a MU, Everyones happy.
In the ends, its all about decisions.
Why are you here?
Can you do it?
Why do it?
Is it worth it?
Spendings, returns, market, drops.
Ask yourself, what are your goals?
We all different, with very different goals.
I hate paying 4PED for a sunjoq hot dogs at the holydays market, but i really love it! And its worth every bits!
Should i amp, what weapon, what armor, should i heal or wait to regen, is this mob good for me, do i have the level, do i have the wallet?
Its all you. Size your hunt to your avatar, and stay where you are comfortable, and where you have fun.
Theres enough history on the forums to read and learn.
Make your own.
And globals have nothing to do with this. Its a consequence.
Losses are not bad, they are needed, and they can be worked, by you.
And Toulan has currently been hard worked to bring you all of this.
Dont miss out!
Hope this will help some wandering souls, in a good way.
PS: Based on MA patchnotes, observations and a 15 years old book filled with EU players feedbacks.
Edit: Sweetened it because mood swings.
