    Over the past week I’ve had two failures at 90percent success for artifacts, I was pissed but said f it. Haven’t had enough source marks to retry again. Today had different character try one at 80percent success fail 3 times costing me 3 seals of preservations! I had to stop with my last seal this has to be a glitch. Please fix this, I hope it’s not some ploy to get us to buy seals that is mysteriously on sell now, that would be messed up. I also would like my seals back this is some bs.

    I haven’t broke through on an artifact all week.

    I mean, it can seem like bs, but it's a chance game. 90% success means there's a 10% chance it will fail. Technically it could fail many times over. I once had it fail at the same level 5 times in a row. It's real unlucky, but it can happen.

    a fail at 90% that is harsh usually that never fails for me! i know one guy failed on 100% once !

    The 100% failure was a bug they found and fixed. Failing at 90 or 80% doesn't sound like a bug but just something everyone will run into now and then eventually. The good thing about lower level failures are catalyst costs are relatively cheap there.

    I feel for you, but unless it's a bug tied to your particular situation (like maybe a specific artifact), I'd say breakthroughs are working as designed. This week I've brought a few head mods to 23 (40% chance) where on one I failed 4 times, but on the 2nd I hit it first time out. Bad luck is bad luck. I will say that If I fail more than 4 times in a row on any breakthrough I stop and try again the next day. Probably just superstition or co-incidence, but I wonder if your cumulative play time, Nth drops or whatever doesn't factor in. After a move to next day I've almost always hit it on the 1st try.

    It was 2 nineties in a row followed by 3 80s in a row. The 90s were separate days and the 80s were all the same day but it was all consecutive. I wonder since the sop are on sale maybe they are screwing with the success rates for sales. Which would be pretty unethical if you ask me.

    I broke thru a 120 just a few minutes ago on 1st attempt.
    Friday I broke thru 100 but it took 2X

    RNGeesus giveth, and other times taketh away

    It’s pretty frustrating when you’re running alts and grind for marks just to have them flushed based off of this stupid milestone system. It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to walk away from the game because apparently you have to pay to level.

    No you don't.
    Use your loyalty points to get seals

    That’s my
    That’s my point, you’re using currency relative to the actual money spent verse currency Earned in game.

    I dislike artifacts in general.
    I'm also one who came from before F2P was introduced (I have the disk)

    That being said your complaining about a micro-transaction in a game that is F2P. Not only that, but one you can 100% use loyalty points THEY give you for having a sub.

    Sorry you had some bad luck, but your last statement about "paying" was silly.
  13. Irvynnge Committed Player

    well. I've had three in a row on a 90. & a couple of 80s, too. I thought it was just me.

    The revamp was done to make money off ur stats u once had before revamp. Just wait for the next new system to be introduced to the game. You'll see artifacts will be much easier to rank to 200. They won't need as much money because it's not that new anymore. For now it's making alot of money it's gonna keep making that much til a new progression system comes around. The biggest fail iv seen with breaking through is the 90% times I see players with none beating players with rank 160. The revamp stats matter is a lie if u use a over performing power set. Now with that said they are working on tank balance and pets for gu103. Last will be dps will most likely see a 4th slot when that happens and maybe a new rank. After that will see either a new progression system or pvp

    They must be messing with the breakthrough percentage on their end in order to drive up sales, which is garbage. It’s making playing pointless and I’m thinking there are other games out there that I can enjoy and not deal with this headache anymore. I mean what’s the point of double marks or free seals if they just double the price and chances anyway.

    Today was my 7th failure on the 60% breakthrough for my second Metal II Augment.

    Random is random. It happens. You just shrug and move on.

    Well the odds say you’re being cheated. The odds of flipping a coin and landing on heads 7 times is 1 to 128, which isn’t impossible but highly unlikely especially when you’re looking at my odds and others. They are cheating players, giving us an odds that aren’t true. This is illegal in casinos but the get away with it due to no oversight. It’s jacked up is what it is, to treat their player base like me this.
  18. Critical Massacre Well-Known Player

    That’s a . 78% chance just so you know the math. Less than 1%. Technically your odds were worst than that since it was still a 60% success rate. My suggestion is to stop all breakthroughs until it’s fixed.
  19. Rejchadar Well-Known Player

    You do not understand RND correctly, each breakthrough is a separate action that is not associated with other breakthroughs, so each time you have 40% for bad luck.
    And the chances that you wrote are the chances of a combination of actions with a specific sequence of individual steps.
  20. Critical Massacre Well-Known Player

    You have a 50 50 chance every time you flip a coin but that still doesn’t negate the odds of getting heads consecutively 7 times. It’s exactly the same as your odds in a 50% breakthrough and failing 7 times or succeeding 7 times. The key component is the consecutive failure not that fails in between successes.
