    That bot is the easiest add to the ignore list that I've ever encountered.

    Crickets make more sense.
    Defiance 2050 = 2018's worst cash grab. Fact.

    I see what you mean. I shall ask once again and will do a follow-up if I get a different answer. Thank you!

    After checking once again with the team, it appears there was never a set schedule for Py, therefore we can't expect it to be updated on a weekly basis. More information can be found on these threads:

    That is not right. Since June 2017, Py has 2 different jackpot's every week. This has changed completely in the last 14 weeks. Gulanit farming is obsolete. There is no incentive to play when the hope dies of getting your dream inventory. Here is a list with the respective date which jackpots there was at Py. From the beginning. Light Energy has created a wonderful list. The link is in her signature.

    And then you want to explain to me Gamigo did not change Py to bad?

    With each day the deinstallation moves closer. Every day I lose more interest in the game.

    All due respect, but that just isn't correct.

    I appreciate your response Selene, It could have been purely coincidental that he used to rotate like that. But I and many others can testify through countless hours of playing that once upon a time this was the norm. I have seen Destros post before so I can't deny what he says as I can't see behind the curtains of what happens in his department. This is merely an expression of my experience. If this is the case then there isn't much any of us can do about it. Perhaps from your side you can suggest that a few older synergy weapons rotate through there for a few weeks just to give us a bit of a change up. To calm the masses so to speak. I personally would like to see Adaptive Augmentation jackpots go through there again. Perhaps some of the other guys can suggest some syns they would like to see in there and keep our fingers crossed the powers that be feel generous enough to grant us a wish lol. Anyway thanks again for your time.

    Apologies for the long post / response ...

    Since Ex Inanis launched in the summer of 2017, Py Numbra usually had 2 jackpots and would change every week on a Wednesday. That is just what happened ... and so players got accustomed to this routine / schedule (can't really hold that against the players ). I guess the Dev Team found that sticking to a regular schedule actually made it a little bit easier to maintain (as with many things in life).

    Yes, originally Destromathe stated:

There is no specific routine for him, as he may sell T4 jackpots, or even jackpots that are not part of the current synergy pool. It will change often!
    In other words, I presume The Dev Team wanted to give themselves some "wiggle room" - if they ever forgot to update Py, were on vacation, couldn't decide what to put in him or just put some random weapons in there. Standard disclaimer type thing to cover themselves ... to make sure they won't get flak for not being able to keep to a fixed schedule etc. Fair enough.

    But he also said, more recently:

    Even with the transfer to Gamigo, Py wasn't too disrupted, which I thought was pleasantly surprising. But it also seems that Zephkial was in charge of Py, because since he left (around May), Py has become more unpredictable .

    Zeph did attempt to take onboard what players said about future syngergies in Py:

    Anyway, regardless of what was said / written by the Dev Team ... by and large, what was actually seen in game (as stated above) was a fixed weekly schedule, usually with 2 jackpots each week.
    And jackpots tended to appear in sets or blocks over several weeks (that is what we are used to). What I mean is this: for example ... we saw all the Isotropic Decay jackpots over 4 consecutive weeks in Autumn / Fall 2018:


    That was the general trend ... jackpots with the same synergy would usually be in adjoining weeks. This just made things a little easier to prepare (build up expectation and earn PG) for.

    Of course you guys at Gamigo / Gamigo US can do whatever you want. But please bear in mind: if you make Py Numbra more random and unpredictable, if you make him have no jackpots or just keep putting the same few in him week after week ... and keep doing that ... you will also probably frustrate / annoy most of the original Defiance players who used to like getting jackpots from Py. As you can see from the forum, some have already stopped playing or practically given up with Py (which also means it's harder for me to keep my list updated, since I generally have relied on others for the info).

    Thanks for your time reading this ... and I'm glad that Py Numbra is not empty this week

    I was really hoping that I would at least get some kind of acknowledgement that Selene (or one of the CMs) had at least noticed / read my post (26 days ago) above ... especially since I demonstrated that both Destromathe and Zephkial clearly talked about weekly rotations for Py' Numbra.

    Perhaps there is some internal miscommunication or something, because what the Dev Team wrote means his jackpots should generally change weekly. That is what the phrase "weekly rotation" means. And the fact is, Py' Numbra used to typically have weekly changes and at least one jackpot (two more frequently).

    For Py'Numbra to be empty (without any jackpots) for 16 days is pretty poor service, IMHO.
