    Whenever we've done event drops in the past, they have a flat rare independent of DAR (so killing a Bartle or Gi Gue with any DAR % will be a 1/500,000 drop rate). Sometimes they'd be affected by the number of players in the game, sometimes not.

    You'd have to ask Soda what he did exactly, because I'm not too sure since I didn't make the drop rates for this one.

    The badge drops are only affected by party's DAR. Not party DAR + enemy DAR like normal items.

    Good to know. Thanks, Soda. Are you going to make a rare appearance and play some games? We'll have you back to pro status in no time!

    Last question - can you just stick your hands around my neck and strangle me now?

    I just wanted to find ONE. WHY.

    So to double check, milestone and HBR DAR will affect the badge rates?

    No. It doesn't affect it.

    Soooo in parties of 4 the drop rate is legitimately 1 in a million?

    Maybe?! The DAR for a badge is 100% then the rate is applied on that.

    So for any type of badge in a PSO2 party, you have to beat the DAR roll first.

    2P = ~82%
    3P = ~67%
    4P = ~55%

    If you beat that, then you'd do another roll for your badge. So, let's go with Platinum Badge which is 1 / 500000...

    1P would be 1 / 500000
    2P would be 41 / 25000000
    3P would be 67 / 50000000
    4P would be 11 / 10000000

    Not quite 1 in a million. More like 11 in ten million. :) (So, slightly better than 1 in a million!)
