Pink Floyd drops a lot more often with low luck, it’s funny that way. Around 10 or 11 luck seems to be the peak… that’s another thing that’s already being given the spreadsheet treatment by Dunatis (full info in this thread. I spend most of my visits grinding Floyds at the moment, and with 11 luck I’ve averaged a drop rate of 46.5% over 273 threads pwned (about 5 drops in every 11 threads)

In one day? Sweet Zombie Jesus…

Might actually be more useful having data from hitting 4, 8 or 12 forums per day, if there’s a diminishing return then it’s more valuable to have the typical numbers to work with. Although if there’s a cap on deliveries I suspect you’ll be about to tell us what it is… that’s useful too.

Yeah. Those extra visits help out a lot. I would’ve done more, but I stopped after Dykea killed my character (I didn’t bother taking consumables since it was for testing purposes only Log in to see images!). Also, he doesn’t have ep2 access, so 80 forums is the highest I can get.

Hitting 4 unique forums per day over a few days gets more total   than hitting 8 or 12 similar forums in one day. I think that’s already been tested, but I’ll run the visits to make sure it’s still true (and to get exact numbers).

Yeah, I think it’s settled that 4 per day nets you more reward than saving them up, but for the purposes of gathering realistic data we’re better of using a sane number of visits.

Maybe just do a few tests of 2x4 vs 8 and 3x4 vs 12 to check the theory, then move to testing what gets the best deliveries from a 4 visit run. Most of it seems obvious – maximise Luck, Charisma and Pwnage, the important part is the balance between Luck and Charisma, since you can’t always max out both at once.

Easiest way would be to settle on a standard 4 visits to run, then we just have to chart out Luck against Charisma and all the data will be easy to compare. On the other hand, that’s no good for anyone trying to build a streak whilst helping out.

I ran 75 visits without batting an eyelid. Trust me, that character doesn’t give two hoots about Domination. (maybe the two remaining streak peens, but otherwise, I don’t really care about streak on him.)

Ah well, I can see that any data I’m going to provide isn’t going to help out – Sorry. I’m still leveling, trying my hand at Domination and waiting for my Paypal account to be activated so I can actually purchase Episode 2.

In a few weeks I’ll have no problem running the same 4 forums to create a control sample, but as for now – I’ll leave it up to you Veterans with time on your hands.

I’m just speculating on what would make things easier to see the shape of things, any data you can provide is helpful even if it doesn’t integrate so neatly with the other data (for one thing it’d help to confirm or deny any theory the rest of the data suggests) and that’s bumuming we can even get many people working in a standardised way.

There’s not a lot of people talking about helping out here, any data is good data.

Edit: Also I am confused by the fish scales thing…

Ah, was taking the chance that your name stemmed from an obscure cartoon show called ‘The Ripping Friends’, where one the characters was a parody of Batman – Called ‘Man man’, with his boywonder sidekick, ‘Boy boy’. Now I’m guessing it has a more musical origin Log in to see images!

Ask me about how many male reproductive organs in my bum :zak:

Afterthotz Posted:

Interesting, thanks Ghax. I’m suprised that as a Camwhore you can’t equip more than one piece of sexy clothes at the same time. I guess we Hackers are spoiled with our 4 Hardware slots… I’m bumuming that its the same for Permanoobs, Trolls etc when it comes to their (Clbum specific) item alottment as well. Not to get off topic, but why is that?

Hackers are the only clbum that have 4 slots for clbum specific items. The rest of the clbumes can only equip one. Even like that, hackers are the most underpowered clbum besides permanoobs and re-res (who don’t even have clbum specific items because they’re challenge clbumes).

rollover just happened. read it and weep. if my math is correct, I got 361 items worth 1,906,692.

Almost 2 million flezz for pwning 75 unique forums. Normally, there’s a 13 (19) visit cap, so this is only possible with a cheater character. A realistic rollover should produce much less Log in to see images! ghax edited this message on 08/15/2009 4:29AM

Well… doesn’t look like there’s much of an upward limit on deliveries. On the other hand it’s not exactly a linear relationship – I can get 150K fairly easily from 4 visits in one day, 75 is 18.75 times as many forums, which would scale up to 2.8 million flezz.

Actually that’s not as much of a dropoff as I was expecting – compare that to the very noticeable difference between using 4 visits a day for 3 days, as against 12 in one day. Pure speculation, but maybe there’s a curve for the effect of cred earned or unique forums pwned (such that it doesn’t make a huge difference between 4 and 12 but kicks in harder when you get up to really high numbers).

since I don’t have ep2 access, I can’t check if we hit the cap by running more forums Log in to see images!

Anything over 13 (19) visits in one day is really irrelevant since it can only be achieved via cheating.

I’ll run 4 visits and keep track of rollovers to find a cap on charisma now.

Actually I took it from a book of cartoons called “Great Lies to Tell Small Kids” (from the same guy as did the Bunny Suicide books). One of the many lies that it suggests telling to your children went along the lines of “Your dad is a superhero. He was bitten by a radioactive man and now has all the powers of a man. His superhero name is man-man and his arch nemesis is “All the stuff that needs doing”.

I was just pitching for the silly angle of being a superhero in the vein of Batman, Spiderman, and the rest, but with very average powers instead of bat/spider related stuff. I have since been slowly finding out that there are many other uses of the name.

13 is very realistic. it’s used in dom all the time. u prep a forum before rollover with at least 8 visits remaining. rollover hits, u have 12 forum visits and your prepped forum. pwn all 13. profit.
