Thanks for clearing that up for everyone Duduie, and yes there is a lot of trust put on people to bring the cash to lose. Its all about luck in the end though who gets what.
Okay, it may not be the same as a push duel exactly, but a fort battle could be engineered to ensure ther are say 5 survivors, while everyone else loses the cash they brought. These 5 would be likely to get a nice prize if the theory proposed here, and similar threads, is correct.How can you make sure that the money you bring go into your friend's item? How can you make sure your friend will find something while you are sacrificing money?
The luck factor makes it different from push duels, not to mention that other uninvited players can join and there is nothing you can do about it.
There is a certain intention of some players to lose money for other player's to get something, but there is no way to make sure your plan will work.
Push duels: 1 opponent and 1 only ... who gets what you lose
Battles: multiple opponents, you can never know how many ... and survivors might or might not find something...
I believe the theory is correct, but what you say is not. The 5 might or might not find something. It depends if they are lucky or not. Just look at it like is a job with 500% luck (we all know that the luck % is the item value and not the chance to find something). So you schedule the job (30 min, 1h or 2h - doesn't matter). You get your first report, nothing. Second, nothing. Third: one cool find (due to huge luck, thus huge value).These 5 would be likely to get a nice prize if the theory proposed here, and similar threads, is correct.
No.Whilst Treasure Hunting, I managed to find both Bowie's Muzzle loader and Huckleberry's Slingshot...can you find all the named items by luck alone?
Maximum drop item value found so far that we know about was $2700 sale price(precise peacemaker), I've found brown and black boots($2550 sale price both) while ambushing stagecoach. I can't remember exactly what is really max value for item drops but I know it's something about $3100~$3500.No.
Check the pricing of the weapons, the more valuable the higher the luck jobs you will need to do.
Ambush stagecoach is the highest luck job which can can find items only up to around about $2000.
These other weapons costs a lot more than that.
What is it about then? Is simple: people come with money, they die, the product value increases, the drop is all about you, the survivor. If you are not lucky then, it does not matter that you might get a $20k item, you were not lucky to get it. No drop.And Duduie, I do understand there is an element of luck to do with finding things, but this is about not just increasing the value of finds.
Would you call it push work if you could bring money during jobs to increase the value of the items found?yes thats why I had the word in apostrophe durrrrrr, and as a push duel is where someone loses money on intention, it actually is a push battle, they just arent illegal, only push duels are, and even they are not punished, I've reported one person for a clear push duel, but nothing was done
