Drop Rate changes KMS patch 1.2.275
Would you like to see this patch come through into GMS? drop rate changes have been made in KMS to be similar to PDR. For Example it follows a similar formula where its 100-your pdr = a number, and you gain a percentage of that number based off your %, so if u had no pdr 100-0(cause no pdr)=100 x 0.3(30% pdr)=30, meaning you would gain 30% pdr. The changes that are made on the KMS's current patch is the same except with drop rate and not pdr. Where its not really possible to get 100% drop rate anymore and its no longer additive. Meaning 20% + 20% item drop rate =/= 40% drop rate, its 100-0=100 x 0.2=20% drop and then 100-20=80 x 0.2 = 0.16+20% from earlier so 36% in total. For the most part if you're a player that can only have like 1 or 2 drop rate items, this wouldnt effect you too much. However i think majority of players now have 5 or more drop rate items that are 20% or is able to get at least the additive 100% drop rate easily. e.g. big spider + 20% IA item drop rate + 1 drop rate item or even just using a normal 2x drop rate use items like easter egg buff or lucky winter. So pretty much all of the players that have more than 100% would end up in reality about 60% or so drop rate. But you would definitely not be over 100 any longer.
Also as an added suggestion, would it be possible if there was a big enough playerbase that did not want this change that GMS would not get this update?
Edit: To those people that think what im saying is "PDR=new drop rate" thats not what im saying. I'm saying the new drop rate formula is SIMILAR to PDR and it can be somewhat seen in the averages in nodestone/hr before and after patch. An example of this are players who have 200% drop rate 10x20%= like around 90%? drop rate (What i think since i think its calculated similar to PDR) and players who have more than 200% are getting around the same averages who have 200%. This CLEARLY shows that the drop rate formula is no longer additive as it was before for CERTAIN. Unless you can somehow think of a formula that matches the results of players. Also i just want to make sure everyone understand that this is the drop rate of NODESTONE after it has been BUFFED. This has not included other items that players with drop rate benefit from such as scrolls/hammers/etc from elite bosses or cubes/shards from boss monsters or quest/event items from quest mobs or ETC drops such as spell essence/twisted times/cube frags/other items that are widely used by most players either for money or their intended purposes e.g. crafting. But because these items werent buffed, i'm sure you could imagine how bad the drop rate on these items will be after the update.
