I got a question regarding Kronos patch notes, exploration section. What are those "loot scattering mechanics"? Is it the relic/data site looting system? If yes, what kind of adjustments will be made to loottables? This patch note is very enigmatic and I would like to know what kind of changes will be done.

Loot spew is being removed and loot tables are going down to about 70% of current.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

Well that didn't last long. Unsurprisingly!

Given that this is perhaps the least popular and most gimmicky gameplay mechanic since walking in stations, I am not surprised it is getting axed. The CSM is better than nothing, but 13 players' opinions are far from representative of the entire playerbase.

TBH I like the mechanic as it is, it is (was) one of the somewhat fresh things in EvE.

To be fair, there were dozens of testers who said that it was a bad mechinac and needed to be scrapped when it was still on Sisi before odyssey was released.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

I liked it also, felt like there was thought behind the choice

Is that my two cents or yours?
