    This is quite funny cuz most people sayin "RR should be an uber rare drop! new rate is perfect" already own at least 1 RR. Server has gone 1+years with the current drop and I'm pretty sure no1 has ever said "fuck my luck, i got another RR". I think the RR 1/64 should be one of those "ops ok it was too easy but too late to change..." instead of "ok too late but we still gonna do it"... Just think about the new players... theres a limit on how much the same players can log on without burning out...

    I agree with this. I'm on the whole that things shouldn't be made harder though in general so I'm aware I'm a biased sob lol.

    Making things harder is one of the things that ****ed schtserv up as well IMO besides broken gear actually.

    PGF could be sold for 20,000 or so worth of PDs there in 2012. I still remember missing out on 1/4th of a pgf sell drop to some old person vet there with team casual lol.

    i mean admittedly the administration didn't help things much either

    they basically said "okay kids, play nice! no witch hunting!" and then put down a giant list of red flags encouraging witch hunting and then nuked rates on some of the most coveted items in the game

    That's true but most people that post on the forums also already own at least 1 Red Ring.

    Well personally I don't have a red ring and I don't trade and I will never except a free rare. I like vanilla cause i got burnt by to many hacked items on trades from original pso. It totally sucked when I lost everything i had on me except my bank after desynching or whatever it's called. Dam Japanese players. Oh and why is it I never lagged on 56k modem. Am I only one who remembers Sega net or when they got bought out by earthlink?

    Oh and do you all remember the hack where you could be killed in the lobby by another player and or in game. Yes on official Sega servers this was a regular occurrence.

    I hated the competition on drops that's partly why I still solo today. Plus I lag now on high speed Internet, but only on certain area's.

    Now that think about it pso v1 dreamcast really did suck. Drops were shared, items where time locked and limited at that. Only level 100, no ultimate mode, limited quest,no support from Sega and to many jap hacks. When you died your coins dropped and was free for anyone to pick up. Bad memories reoccurring from 2000 to 2001. Lol let me stop b4 I quit playing this game again for another 10 years.

    In an ideal world, it should have been done a long time ago. But nothing nor anyone is perfect. As it was, is ludicrous, people could get them way too easy and that's boring/economically detrimental. Just because some people had it easy doesn't mean everyone should, life isn't equal or fair. Keeping it at 1/64 is damaging and it'll just keep getting worse if kept so. Thinking about the server long-term including new players I see this as a beneficial change. Short-term ofc right now it's going to make people cry and complain to some extent but you gotta look at the economy, the game balance and consider what people truly want. Look at the bigger picture man.

    Any changes like so will always have newer players coming last. Like ep4 drop changes back when rappies and pod were nerfed. The same argument could have been used but eventually it all becomes the past and the economy fixes itself.

    Safety Heart as a viable alternative for new FOs? Its arguably still more expensive than a min RR (lol events). Sweetheart/Angel harp also exist but you have to do some mental gymnastics to come up with any situation in which you'd actually suggest either to a new player.

    S-parts exists for blind HUs (yes kyu, that means HUcast). The fact they have slightly more ATA with it equipped than the other classes do without.. I'll let you figure out why that is.

    Well thanks for clearing that up for anyone new. I guess two unwanted RRs is something ephinea just can't handle and fully warrants making their grind 3 times as long .

    To be honest though, I fully expect the party line to shift over the next few months from "RR is too precious" to "we should include min stat RRs for the next event", so no worries new players... Hopefully.

    Full disclosure, my RR hunts are long finished and this nerf has increased my "pso wealth" substantially - I still think it was a dumb idea and look forward to even more people burning themselves out running nothing but falz.

    Retention be dammed.

    I 100% see this happening and it's kinda sad lmao. RR gonna be an event item.

    Probably won't be min-stat tho. Will probably roll random stats. (I believe we have the technology for that?)

    That's probably the fraction that shows up when you input a drop but set its rate to "zero." The "display a fraction" code probably isn't set to properly handle zero.

    Rage over ubers was bad enough. Max stat RRs will just mirror that, possibly worse due to them nerfing it :p

    If it's random it's not gonna happen tho. You gotta roll the RR and then also roll a 1/85 chance for max dfp. And they're not gonna drop 85+ rings in an event to make those stats work lol

    Yes, it's one year too late, but long-term server health is more important than "what about the new players if we change this", you can't leave things broken like that. Believe me, it's been discussed.

    RR isn't going to be in events.
