    When is RNG 'NOT' RNG?

    I posted this as a response in another thread:
    http://forums.defiance.com/showthrea...tion-Repeaters!

    Mine was response #62, and I was responding to DSW.

    And it hit me that it might be something to call attention to separately.
    Let me know what you think?
    Thanks.

    This one is a little harder, but try this one out:

    Go to the faction vendors, like TNTW or Soleptor at The Crater with several friends.
    It helps if you have several 'toons on an account and start this at lower EGO so you can watch the progression.

    Make note of weapons like the purple heavy carbine and purple SAW at TNTW, both with 'Prepared' syn, and the purple 'Scavenger' syn SMG at Soleptor.

    If you check back every so often, and compare notes - You'll see that you, your alt 'toons, and your friends will see the bio nano at TNTW and the flame nano at Soleptor appear at different EGO level numbers for the different players and 'toons.

    I've had it appear at E-2K for some of my 'toons, not until about E-3K for others, and several friends who either didn't see it until over E-4K, or never saw nano on them at all.

    That leads me to believe that RNG either has some randomly borked persistence, or is randomly borked within servers, too.

    Think about the implications of how one player's 'toon might see a faction weapon with nano at E-2K, while another player's 'toon might never see that faction weapon with nano ever.

    That isn't standard RNG. Unless you want to go down the road that says that some players are RNGd into a category that they persistently carry for the rest of the game, separate from other player's??

    If this IS so, it would explain why SOME players claim to NEVER get oranges, while other players FREQUENTLY get oranges, no?
    These are just my opinions.
    I have lots of opinions.
    Some of them, on occasion, people have agreed with.
    I do not trust those people.

    NA/pc.
    2013:
    Mid E-5XXX main, but I played 26+ 'toons from E400 to E5500. (Dormant)
    2050: Lvl 499X main

    My friend pulled 7 legendarys last night. She was happy,

    SEVEN, out of six boxes (An ARK shield included, 2 SAWS and a VBI AR???)

    I pulled 5 boxes, and nothing? (Must be on box 30 by now with nothing) lol makes no sense.

    All methods have proven useless against RNG
