Well, it’s either that, or after a certain luck value your loot (deliveries) from pwning a forum seems to be the same.

I pwnd 4 forums yesterday, to get JP. And today I got 4 Venus De Milos, a Pocket Watch, A Seasonal Centerpiece, a Children’s Playhouse Kit, an Empty Gas Pump, and a Human skull. In that same exact order, four times – Meaning 16 Venuses, etc.

Though it seems like a forum’s strength and your luck DO make somewhat random loot equivalents, it also seems like the value, once capped, always gives certain loot. I’ve gotten those same exact items for the past few days, with slightly varying Luck values each day.

Not that this is particularly important, I just thought it was interesting.

I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

Your stats and some randomness always come into it. The random factor is very small though, so it’s quite possible you’d get the same deliveries if you did things the same way. Then again, if you did it again you might find your items completely different, too.

Hence why it’s called random.

Actually, I always get the same drops from any of the forums I go to now – Regardless of their level and if it’s a job or not.

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

Maybe that’s ‘cause you’re maxed out on cred so aren’t earning any more?

“Human Yeast Infection”

I’m getting the same drops for pwning Second Wife now, too.

More than that, though, I seem to be getting the same drops no matter how many times I pwn it. Four times, two times, and one time for the day (different days, obviously), and I got four Venus de Milos, a Seasonal Centerpiece, a Pocket Watch, an Empty Gas Tank, Children’s Playhouse Kit, and a Human Skull.

Same. Though one time I got 12 Venus, but now I keep getting that.
