Do the math. It will cost you about $100 real dollars to upgrade, or risk loosing even more money by playing the odds. A bit of a gouge if you ask me. Too rich for my blood.

Isn't the Doller a river in France?

Yes, 100 Dollars is a bit much for one gun.

It's much cheaper playing the 5% odds. Did you even try it or just see the 100% cost and decide to complain.

farmed up 800af last week, upgraded 2 weapons to supreme right off the bat with em.

Unfortunately I now have the problem of it not wanting to let me into coops, Im getting booted out of them faster than I join em and causing hard freezes after every 3rd or 4th attempt. I know people like to boot folks entirely to much in coops but I can't get in a single one weather they're standard, advanced, or expert.

Lucky, I blew through 100AF on 10% chances and have nothing to show for it.

And Coop Matchmaking is broken for me also.

Of course coops is getting slammed. The majority don't come to the forums. They don't know what just hit them. I've been doing coops nonstop for three weeks.

The odds are the odds, no matter how much you bid at a time.

and now with the cap you have to spend a least 10 bucks for a pass to be able to farm forge

Eh I think I'll just stick with my original plan of building up 1000 AF every 2 weeks before splurging for gold

Make us stretch to get something good and we will spend MONEY to get it. Put it out of reach and no one will use cash to try. You just priced yourself out of the market.

best price and odd is 20% that is 1/5 chance

i found 10% to be solid. 175AF (same price point as 350 for 20%). I had a good stockpile of AF (even though I've barely played in a month) and got 3 guns upgraded... then went through a few tries on my Undertaker that wouldn't take it (im punny).

I'd say you're looking at $50 per gun to upgrade in a hurry. If you're willing to take your time and just do these reasonable 10-20% chances, you'll probably have your arsenal (of maybe ~10-12 guns) upgraded for $0-50 in 2 months.

EDIT: the price step is odd though. going back and doing a bit of math... take the percent upgrade chance and divide by the total AF cost, and the lowest value of Ark Forge per percent (afpp) would be the "best" economically over many tries.
5% = 20afpp
10% = 17.5afpp
15% = 16.67afpp
20% = 17.5afpp
25% = 18afpp
30% = 19.167afpp
and increasing from 20afpp at 35% up to 33afpp for 100%

so it looks like 15% chance is slightly more economical, though anything <30% is less prohibitive than the 5% starting point.
