    Morning All,

    Just a little heads up to all those peps that like to do MIBS...

    The old rate of return for Ancient SOS's used to be about 1 for every 20 MIBS that you opened, After this last patch as far as my wife and I can determine is now 1 Ancient SOS for every 200 MIBS that you open.

    I don't know if this was an oversight or an intentional change by the Devs but, White Nets and chests are now gonna be some of the rarest things in the game.

    We would appreciate a confirmation on this finding if anyone else out there does the Fishing thing like us still

    So how many did you actually open? You say an average of 1 in 200, so you must have opened at least 1000 and got, say, 5 ASOSs?

    Or did you open just 200 and get 1 ASOS, in which case, while I would agree that you have hit a rather unlucky streak (statistically, you should have gotten 8), it is not all that rare. I've easily gone through more than 500 without getting even 1 ASOS, and sometimes I get 3 in a row. It all averages out. (You can roll a pair of dice 200 times and never once get a pair of sixes, but that doesn't mean the dice are necessarily loaded.)

    The official rate is 1 in 25, and for the moment, I see no reason to believe that has changed. I've opened just over 100 today, and got 5 ASOSs, which is just a tad on the lucky side. Keep at it, and I'm sure your luck will change soon.
