# 12 Copied Toon 12 Times?
09-15-2011, 05:20 AM
You started the OP with a Qualifier that you Copied to Tribble 12 times to see what might come of the Reward Item. If these are Copies, then why would all of the Cargo Bay Items be different on each layout? Should they not be the same? or is each picture part after items have been moved around??

I'm doing badges myself after several non-existing items in a row.

If you got a purple item everytime or even half the time it would unbalance the system. The whole point of purple is that they are VERY RARE. You have to do a good bit of grinding to find one (either getting crafting supplies, emblems from dalies, etc) otherwise everyone would have a full compliment of them and the exchange would be flooded with them driving their value way down.

A roughly 10% drop rate is perfectly understandable and makes since. Mean time i turn in any greens for the credits and put the blues in fleet for newer players to use. This is why u have an option ( do u want a gauranteed emblem or take an item you will most likely sell for the chance of a purple.)

While the 'blank' bug is rather new to me the other numbers don't seem to have changed since I did my own datamining on the subject.

After the first five or six "level-appropriate items" I got were all green consoles, I never took the item option again. When I get one from an aid the planet mission, I just sell the unopened box on the exchange (people pay for these? Why?).

Good to see there's at least a chance of getting something better, though.
