Hi, VCO players. It's midnight before the server refreshes, and I have a story to tell. Be patient and read it to the end. I appreciate your time.

Yesterday, I found a Lake(PROBABLY THE ONLY LAKE FROM THE SERVER IN A WEEK) via Treasure maps, and I thought "great, I finally got a lake after billions." So I decided to keep doing maps after the server refreshed. It turned out it's a total disaster that I lost 2.5 billions approximately, again! I thought the drop rate should be fine after three unpredictable maintenance, but it's not, it's even worse than ever before. I kept trying again and again, and I got sucks. No joke.

(PS: The gold ingots in picture is the leftover after this treasure hunting journey)

You may ask me, "If you keep losing money from maps, why not stop doing it?" I want to stop, but I can't because I've lost too much from maps, and I won't stop doing it until I get my 20 billion back. 
check my previous story with the following link:

I already did what I could to minimize the risk and maximize the profit. I didn't throw lvl 1 and lvl 2 maps away, I exchanged them with map pieces so I could do more maps. When I have bad luck, I took a break and came back later. I was even wasting time to dig lvl 3 treasure maps and sold them to NPC and get some money back. And yet, I still got sh*t from lvl 5 maps. Jesus. 

Some of my friends hated me because I put lower price in Seville and their treasure items won't get sold. They blamed me for the incident that I destroyed the whole market of treasure. However, I didn't destroy the market, IGG did. I need silver flowing back quickly to keep doing maps and get my money back because I am upset upon the fact that I keep doing billions on it.

I know that IGG is horrible company which never says sorry, never acknowledges their mistakes, and never compensates. Ok. If no one cares about what we players say, I don't care about it anymore. I will keep doing map. I will keep doing inis like EC or HI if I run out of money. And I will keep destroying the market and lowering the price again and again until NO ONE WANTS TO DO MAPS ANYMORE. Guys, good luck to you if you wanna try maps. I sincerely hope you will have a different happy ending story rather than mine. :D

Someone who loses a lot of money at a casino does not go to the manager, or create a poll, or a forum, or go on strike asking the casino to raise their "drop rates." You're addicted. Just stop

I was raised to believe that if you keep making the same mistake over and over, that is the definition of an idiot. 

Fine another way to make silver just like everyone else has. Anyone who chooses to continue playing this game adapts to whatever changes have been made, or they quit. Make a decision and stop these posts. IGG isn't going to give you a  hug or silver back so what do you want? Other players' to respond to your post with empathy and/or sympathy? I hope you snap out of it because this isn't healthy.

Well, the difference between Casino and IGG's treasure map is that there is a chance to get something if I have large amount of trials in Casino, but I got nothing if IGG set the chance of getting lake and gold ingot to 0 at a certain time. Just like rolling a dice, I will get approximately 200 times number 6 if I try 1200 times. With large amount of trials, there is nothing so called luck. it's just pure probablity. For lake and gold ingots, it's 0 at the time I was trying.

Yes. I did get a lake. But after that, the drop rate decreased significantly. I lose all the money  beside the money of lake.

Yes. I am addicted to it, but I won't stop until I get my money back. At least, I am willing to admit it. Unlike IGG, they don't even have the courage to admit they lower the drop rate of lakes and gold ingots in treasure maps. Besides, I am not the only one posting here to say that there is a problem with maps.

Without so called "addicted" map players like me, you will never be able to make any gears without treasure maps. Even if I stop posting something like this, other people who step in maps later will keep posting something like this thread because they will keep losing money like I did. The mechanism is designed to make sure people lose money in maps. lol

I want to ask that as polite as i can, but: "Are you stupid?"

First you say maps are rigged, than you find a lake after maintance and write this: "If I didn't spend 30 billion on maps to find out the shitty drop rates, and if I didn't post here to reveal the truth, and if they did't change the drop rate back, you would've gotten sh*t like I did before. There were two lakes on one day, there is one today as I far as I know."

and now you write:" I thought the drop rate should be fine after three unpredictable maintenance, but it's not, it's even worse than ever before. I kept trying again and again, and I got sucks. No joke." 

You like a kid that if it doesnt't gets what it wants it will cry and say everything is unfair....

"and I got sucks. No joke. "

yeah truth is not a joke, but you are!

to be fair... Squidward is totally right, that the drops from lvl 5 maps suck ass....

Also i am 90% sure IGG has no clue about this. They did introduce gold ingots into maps and other new treasures and saw at start droprate was to good and adjusted a bit and then just left it untouched for months/1,5 years.....

But with jiawu patch they added another rare treasure and in my opinion with that 4th "rare" treasures  (lake, gold ingot, Gilded Meteor, and the new Keel Ironwood) the droprate already got very bad, but it was still okayish if u were lucky.

Since Star Soul patch droprate is totally destroyed. I talked to support about this and they told me check Facebook news there was found 11 Lakes in 1 week.....

i checked it and there was a news 1,5 years ago in august  10 lakes on MMP found in 3 days....

SO yes the droprate is worse than it should be and it is good that people bring this into spotlight... 160 gear is still hard to get which is totally stupid and makes game hard for medicore /newbie players

Yes IGG should change it back/ increase rate of Lakes/ gold ingots in maps a bit again.

Kind Regards

P.S. i also agree that Squidward is a bit weird to keep trying maps before it gets fixed and that it is bit worrying that he seems to be so addicted, but as mentioned above i like that he keeps the topic in the spotlight.

P.P.S. pls stop create tons of new topics about this just use one of your existing ones for updates

The New Forum is lets say "special"......

Two days ago, I got 2 lakes from maps, which was nice. However, I didn't get any gold ingots from then. And now, I start losing money because there is no lake and gold ingots after I open more than 100 boxes. Is that normal? Anyone got any gold ingots? It's weird, doesn't make sense.

Another update. This is what I got after 2 lakes, you probably will get something like this with 4 billion on maps. LOL. It looks like there is a fatigue mechanism built in the system, which prevents players from doing too many map, which will make IGG can't control critical resources such as Lake Mithril.

Today's Treasure Hunter ranking: 3rd place -> CarolineMae -> 1 lake + 2 gold ingot boxes | 2nd place -> BSOD -> 2 Lakes + Unknow gold ingots | 1st place -> Squidward -> 0 Lake + 0 gold ingots(go eat shit). Well done IGG, good at using despicable way to lower my toon's drop rate.

I guess they impose the debuff or set the drop rate of gold ingot and lake to 0 again. Three days on maps, 8 billion spent, and 0 lake + 0 gold ingots again. Pretty incredible. Well done, IGG. One step closer to death.

FoK, the drop rate of Lake and Gold Ingots are decreased after maintenance on this Tuesday. Spent 9.5 billion in a week, and I got 11 gold ingots, and a lot of craps. Don't tell me shit like "we haven't changed anything", or "you just don't have luck". I don't believe in luck, it's just probability. Can you believe you open 100 boxes and got 0 lake? By doing maps, you lose money if you don't have enough lake or gold ingot. Some people may say you can sell Telance and other stuff, but it doesn't help because it can't cover the cost, even I sell it for 80kk each!

How about gilded meteor? FUCK THAT! No one wants to buy that because they don't have gold medals to make 170 set, and then no one is willing to buy that shit even my price is the lowest ever!!!


If you want to sell more IM, just cancel lake and gold ingots in maps, and just list the lake on item mall, just like refined iron and gold medal. LOOOOOOL. COME ON, I DARE YOU TO MAKE AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF THAT!!!!!
