We had a loot boost weekend and I pulled precisely 20, TWENTY, Arkforge from the likely well over 50 Tier II boxes I purchased.

Was this just RNG poop? Some sort of crazy coincidence that this would coincide with a Loot Boost weekend?

Any other folks have this experience?

I made about 300 yesterday just from doing the contracts and t2's. The weekend I think I made about 200ish

I hardly get any as well. I used to not get legendarys, now I get oranges but no arkforge, its always what I want most that I don't get.

I got close to 950 - 1300 ark forge

The biggest being a ticket for 150 ark forge on one t2 lockbox .....Happy happy happy .....

Also out of 100-120 t2 lock boxes 3 - 4 orange weapons, an orange grenade, and orange shield.....More happy happy happy...

this all part of a lot of fun work and upbeat attitude .....

Seeing some of my favorite shields and weapons take on a new life of their own

Thank you Trion.... " I enjoy the New Age Warfare"

Happy Trails in Paradise:cool:

I got a bunch of 20's over the weekend from T3 boxes.

Last night I got 120 from a single T3 box - was WOW of course I used it right away.

Finally tonight can get DLC and my 1000 arkforge to blow thru. Then for some of those expert co-ops!

I pull very little as well. And very few oranges from lockboxes - only 1 since the DLC dropped. I play a lot and pull probably 20 or 30 t2s each day.

I got one +20 and one +50, so I'm in there with the highly unlocky Arkforge receivers.

Its impossible to get more than 50 from any lockbox or anywhere for that matter yet two people in this thread say they got more than 100 from a single box?....hmmm

Yessir this is true - perhaps they multi-purchased boxes like I do (5 Tier 2 boxes all at once - or in rapid succession I mean)?

...in which case the game lumps all the pulled Arkforge into one little message, like "120 Arkforge". This makes it seem that "120 Arkforge" came from just that last box when in fact it was 50 from the first box, 50 from box number 3, and just 20 from that last one you thought was worth 120 all by itself.

I thought 50 was the max too.

Some people might be opening a number of them in rapid succession, and then because of the delayed timing of the Ark Forge popup screens, they think it came from the one box.

Edit: ninja'd, Overt beat me to it

It's no prob drama - honestly an easy misunderstanding. The game does tell you "120 Arkforge" but doesn't lump things like "3 Damage Spikes"...

As for me I haven't gotten a "summed" Arkforge message in a long while. :( Seriously I've pulled 40 total in the last 5 days. Forty.

I think it is because I am on PS3 and today we have the first opportunity to buy DLP 5...but y'know, tin-foil hat and all.

Either way Arkforge Drop Rate is Lame.

Got my tin foil hat all ready. Game does a lot of dumb and lame things to me. And tonight, fool that I am, I'll throw another $10 in the hopper for the two-week delayed DLP 5. Hey, I can be dumb too...Defiance does not have a corner on that market!

Srsly I got the 120 without having DLC yet, last night. But the RNG is the RNG and it will punish us all eventually!

Yeah I pulled a ton in the first few days of the patch - but it has dried up quicker than a mud puddle in Texas.

It's just the RNG engine in play. Unless they weight the consumable drops differently 16 possible drops (6 grenades, 5 stims, 3 spikes and 2 different size Arkforge bundles) gives a 6.25% chance of getting 20 Arkforge and a 6.25% chance of getting 50 Arkforge. Just to put that in perspective the current drop rate for a Legendary Arkbreaker weapon from the Warmaster is approximately 6%. Since the RNG engine appears to apply over the entire server population's drops rather than by the individual that means some players are going to experience dry runs and downswings for Arkforge from lock boxes while others may experience very generous yields for a period of time, i.e. like good drops for gear, it can be feast or famine.

I have yet to get over 300 Arkforge from lock boxes in one playing session and have often received less than 100 for 27 lock boxes.

From Friday to last night, I pulled 700. Will get DLP 5 tonight {have no ****in' clue why}. Arkforge isn't what's hard for me to obtain. I want more cores! LOL

That's my reason...in for a penny in for a pound. Stubborn. Thick-headed. Addicted.

it does, but only will sum up to 10 spikes/stims, because more would overflow into Claims

With in the first week I amassed a whopping 3000+ on top of my 1000. I was gone from friday until sunday around lunch so I only pulled maybe a few hundred. I need to keep track of how much arkforge I get per day.

Edit: I have pulled a bio run-n-gun frc carbine, at least 2-3 shields and other ojs that I can't remember.
