In the Navy, if you take a promotion exam, pass the test, and do not get promoted (For any number of reasons), you receive PNA points. PNA stands for Passed, Not Advanced. Those points apply to your next test, and are added on top of the next test score.

PWE could apply a similar tactic here. Add a small (Your discretion) token to a player's character, so that for the next STF, they have a slightly higher (Very slight, even) chance of getting that better drop.

Even if a player must go through a hundred STFs before being guaranteed a decent drop, it would still likely be widely accepted and appreciated.

Personally, I have done more than my share of STFs. I do the majority of my STFs on my main character. I have a few of the Run X (number) of Cure/Infected/Khitomer achievements, and have never received a Prototype Tech Drop (Of any kind) on any character. I've been running STFs at an average of about 3 per day since November 2011. It's now June 2012. That long and not a single proto tech drop? That's right up against the wall of unacceptable.

tl;dr:

It's time for a revamp on the drop rates for the higher tier techs. Here's a good starting point.

The random number generator, unfortunately, just hates some people.

What would be better is if the Yanks stopped posting stupid suggestions to the admins to make the game better for themselves. If they're not winning they're like 'admins help game has a bug/is unfair'. Ive seen so many MMOs go right downhill just because of this.

I don't think Americans are the only ones posting about this problem, nor is this an issue that will only benefit them. Your logic has gaping flaws.

This is a serious issue that could stand to be improved for all.

No I am not American.

At this point I'd be all for it. Run those STFs so many times that I hate them passionately. Still don't have any MXII costume drops at all.

So it's because I live in the United States? That's the only reason I can't get a Prototype Tech drop? Hmm. Maybe I'll move to near you, then.

Also, if you could please explain to me how a change in the drop rate favors me over you, I would appreciate that. I had assumed that drop rate was the same for all. Apparently, those of us in the United States have better drop rates. Who knew?



And just for the record, I got my first Proto Tech drop (Shield) yesterday. Go me.
