So Where Are The Forma Drops Now?

They changed drop tables again and this time encrypted them, meaning no one can data mine them. People believe this is so we cannot find their fubar drop rates such as 12% drop rate for forma suddenly becoming .67%, which we caught that in the act.

Uhh, wouldn't just encrypting the tables just make it so that it takes longer for the dataminers to get the tables? I mean if it can get encrypted, it should be able to be unencrypted, eventually...

Not really. Even in datamining the raw numbers you pretty much have to decrypt the information as it's just a conglomerate of numbers that you have to work or What's what.

When it's encrypted, I get the impression that it's all done in a secret code making it literally impossible to decrypt unless you had the decrypted version to compare it with.

Imagine if you wrote an essay in german woth bad grammar, mixed up all the sentences and sentence order, then swapped all letters for other letters at random (ie all ts become cs) and then asked someone to decode it who speaks english.

I feel as though it is safe to assume nothing has changed in terms of forma. Just by experimenting I've found that the tables on the wiki currently still seem to be accurate.

 

Basically, it's found in all void missions at an increasing drop rate with key tier, with the highest drop rate being in T3 missions.

or better yet, make them appear in some sub menu ingame???

its easy to hide known "bug" this way: important item don't drop after big update and it can be only obtained with real-life cash.

Just thought I'd ask.

 

I have corrupted Mods to fit into things!

 

Same exact place.

They never said they would make drop table available.

They said that they will have some sort of library system for drop locations.

Hmmm, thats not how i remember it though,..

anyway, this is pretty much doing a 180..

same exact S#&$, they pulled regarding the grinding aspect of the game,

and then came U10 with more grinding.

promises was made but none will be full filled (instead it will be in reverse)

I will say this, I am one of the biggest critics of the encrypted drop tables.

 

That being said, from my experience in T3, (mostly cap and exterm), forma rates seem to be the same. I've run about 12 missions since the update, and I've gotten four BPs and an actual forma.
