Tier 5-6 planet Meteors. Remove components and seeds

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fcb8edf30e8>

I’ve noticed that meteors on tier 5-6 are dropping less oort since the update. Anyone’s else noticing this also? Please remove tech components or ore from the meteor drop table to fix issue of less oort.

Had a suspicion that with the addition of the seeds in the loot table it will result in less oort on average. This makes T5 and T6 hunts even less viable for oort since we only have elemental worlds of those tiers.

Average Oort Before:

Tiers Sizes
Dormant 1 2 3 4 5 6
3 1.55 5.77 7.21 8.65 10.1 11.54 12.98
4 1.44 7.18 8.61 10.05 11.49 12.92 14.36
5 1.4 8.4 9.79 11.19 12.59 13.99 15.39
6 1.39 9.71 11.1 12.48 13.87 15.26 16.64
7 1.21 9.68 10.89 12.09 13.3 14.51 15.72

Is this just a bug @james and if not and it is because of adding something in addition to drops from meteors please remove tech components to fix this perhaps even the ore.

Yeah at this point it feels like we might be better off breaking into many small groups instead of the large organized hunts that are the norm now. I can’t imagine that’s the intent of adding seeds to the drops.

Alright so T4 hunts it is!

We need an AUS T4 planet!!! :smiley:

Actually i think that is exactly what is intended.
If i just could find the thread where a Dev said it is against there Vision to have big trigger only hunts…

It doesn’t seem it would matter the size of the group. It’s because of the added seeds to the drops. So even a level 2 meteor on a level 5-6 planet will still drop less oort.

Definitely need to make sure we still get the same amount of oort. I’m fine with metal, tech, and regular gems drop at a lower rate.

That would be rather disappointing. The larger hunts are very enjoyable. Either way I hope the amount of oort we get will go back to what it was as well

The entire point of hunting tier 5-6 planets is for better rewards. Sorry a seed versus oort…not a better reward.

if oort is that much harder to get now, how are the bigger HUB networks going to stay open?

That’s my concern also. Seems tier 4 planets are the only viable option for hunting to receive oort and trophy’s at normal rate. Tier 5-6 now you get seeds at the expense of important drops. The seeds should have been added to tier 3 planet meteors since those are the planets you don’t even receive monster trophy’s from so it wouldn’t put drops off balance. Plus would have brought some life to those planets.

Wouldn’t it be better to keep the seeds in higher tier but increase the oort drop as well? Maybe if they got rid of some of the random stuff that comes out of a meteor they could put more oort…
But then again, it’s kinda cool to have to pick I think.

Just got done running a T6 platform hunt on shedu tier. We had around 20 people show up from 930est to 1100est.

Normally in that time, I average between 190-220 rough oortstones with only 8 people showing up…

…tonight…142 rough oortstones and 36 sentinels crest kernels…

Which would be 50 LESS ROUGH OORTSTONES than average!!! 50!!!

Also totals out to Almost 750 less oort shards!

I guess they can’t giveth without taketh away. Maybe a logical balance to them, but a not very fun one for gamers. They are gamers, right?

This is going to hurt a lot of hunting guilds as well as people who need oort to fuel portal networks. :unamused:

I know things have been hectic with the buffer issues, though I am hoping something will be done about this.

Any chance something may be done about the % of oort drop on high level planets caused by the seeds being added. @james just wondering.

I still think you should, even if it wouldn’t affect me as EU much. It’d only be fair.

That aside though, I haven’t noticed much of a difference myself, honestly.
Maybr my rng is just in my favor for that one time in my life, or I’m incredibly forgetful and don’t realise I get less. Honestly, both are likely. :laughing:

Maybe this will go down in history as The Great Oort Shortage of 2019 lol I went to a few places the other day and seen a great deal of portals closed and i thought to myself, maybe people are going on strike because of The Great Oort Shortage of 2019 :thinking:
