1. We can see how "harmful" they are on ambush league.
2. No. In your comparison the real candy is trading. Not drop rates.

No it isn't. The poll isn't even close to being statistically relevant, for various reasons. It's just an indicator that some people would like to try a SFL, and that's okay.


It is statistically relevant for many reasons. Do you think when the poll the support in the presidential elections they do it any different? No. Exactly. Cheers.

The reason you want increased drop rates is so that you can get items you value. The reason you value them is that they're hard to get. See the feedback loop? You'll always want increased drop rates, because you'll always value items you can't get.

Make it so that a solo player can get top of the line gear, and you have to design your game based on the premise that everyone has this gear. Then nothing feels rewarding.


If it were with the same drop rates as the default leagues would you think differently about it?

I feel that if (big if) GGG were to begin a SFL, it would be without buffed drop rates. All it would likely be is a signature race with the timer off.

If increasing the drop rates is harmful then so is trading considering that trading is substantially more powerful than increasing the drop rates a little bit.

Your analysis above fails because people don't just want "more" like a child wanting more candy. They want more after having something else removed so your not really getting more your just getting the same thing in a different form.

Don't try arguing about it. This could be an in game poll with over ten thousand votes and they would still complain and try to poke holes in it.

This made me lol. No point in arguing with crying little kids though. They want their candy and they want it now and then they gotta brush their teeth and they dont want that.
Intellect is not a cure. Justice is dead. Fear, recrimination, innocence, sympathy, guilt, waste, failure, grief, were things, emotions, that no one really felt anymore.
Reflection is useless, the world is senseless. Evil is its only permanence.

Hahaha. Yes, in fact the presidential elections polls are done completely differently. You obviously have no clue about statistics so don't argue with me, unless you want to get #rekt.
I'm a bigendered omnisexual fem-presenting fat-positive catkin, be nice :)
btw the fun about ppl thinking a super lowballs drop rate is a good thing is the time they get items for their character (like 1 year or so lol) their gear is completely deprecated by new nerfs/buffs/items/balance patches xD
C'mon it's sunny outside !
Oh wait...
