# 1 The Drops Droped
05-17-2011, 04:53 AM
Anyone noticed the drops is second to none ?
I played a lot off games on advanced but drops are almost gone.
If I have 5 drops after a mission it's much so to speak !!!
Also the rare traces off :
  • Antithoron Particle Trace
  • Chronometric Particle Trace
  • Vertion Particle Trace
  • Metreon Particle Trace

If I scan for an 2 ours straight I should be glad to have 2 or 3 in my inventory.
So to the Dev's please adjust this , Why you ask why ?
Well for one reason Vertion's I need 3 vertions for one beam weapon .
There goes 6 beam weapons and 2 torpedo bays on my ship all purple.
So that's 8x3= 24 Vertion Particles or 18 Vertions and 6 Anti Thorons .
That would mean I have to scan a whole weak just to get it .

About mission drops :

It's a lot off food and hypo's but noting specific in this Mather.
I played on normal then you have most off the time food drops.
when playing on advanced you get some body armor or personal shield drops .
Playing on Elite If you like to die 250 times in a single mission you get some blue stuff.
Not sure if there are more people have noticed this ?

Also server timed out is increasing these days and there is noting wrong with my connection.
I heard lot off people complain about it could you please check this ?

All I can say is that drop rates are completely random,there are days you get nothing but junk and on other days the rare items are dropping every few minutes it seems.

Not exactly sure what your trying to say... But the rare traces are dropping fine. I got 3 vertions in an hour a week ago... It's just luck of the draw dude

This issue has been brought up before and Dsatahl himself has said they plan to work on improving loot drops. We can only wait and hope.

In this game "random" means really random.
It took me till Commander 7 to get a single Tactical BO as a rank-up reward on one of my KDF toons.
But it was not a bug.
It was just...random.
So there is nothing to worry about.
It's just one of the worse days, just wait till the phase of the moon changes and your drops should be fine again.

i'd just wish there was a way to automatically pick up items instead of hitting F all the time...
and to configure what type of items you want to keep, like say everything <Mk X goes to the replicator without question or even looking, or those annoying Batteries, /shoo ...don't want!
or that small Hypos go directly to the BOff's and the big ones to me if there are free slots ;P

To be honest, I have no problem finding Antithoron and Chronometric particles. But I can see why they are somewhat rare because of how tons of MKXI Craftables require them.


I wish Cryptic would redo crafting where high-end craftables require more of the other particles, else they go wasted in the bank or go on the exchange for cheap.

You think a server care if you are a lucky person or not I don't think so !!
My opinion :

A : They can change the drop rate !
B : They change the crafting witch means instead of 3 rare per weapon just 1 rare per weapon.
