So why did they take away the Merchant from CS & HM

Recommended Posts

Just a sneaky deletion of the merchant in these 2 dungeons. Why would NC ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ off more people then they allready do.

Easy, he sells things for gold that they sell for Ncoin in the cash shop, this year, that'll be a big no no. NCsoft could care less at this point they're only worried about keeping the mega whales happy (as you can tell from the last HR "event") and the mega whales could care less if the merchant is in the game at all since they buy literally EVERYTHING from the shop. 

 

Can't blame them either the mega whales are the ONLY thing keeping this sinking ship afloat a little longer, cause they sure as hell aren't bringing in new players.

His spawn rate has been heavily nerfed, anyone who pretends otherwise is delusional.

I dont believe it is still there too.

Run CS/HM around 10x a day, for like 1 month, didn't see one since many weeks ago.

Same. Since december patch no one saw this merchant in CS/HM anymore. Grimior seems to be the only person who wants to see this merchant since then. thats impossible that a whole clan (like mine) dont see the merchant for nearly ~2,5 months now.... Also other people also reported that they dont saw him anymore in CS+HM.

 

topics like:

and

 

show this too.

ST and CC are not the dungeons we are talking about.^^ We only discuss Cold Storage and Heavens Mandate. Other dungeons still have it.

 

BTW: also the rate of gem chests in both said dungeons are lowered since then.

You know, rng has a funny way of how it works.

 

A. The chance for merchant to spawn most likely is around 0.5% - 1% only because of the amount of people doing CS and HM every single day and how easy and fast those are.

B. Less people playing the game in NA/EU = less chances for merchant to spawn due to less amounts of time the rng for "weather to spawn merchant or not" is checked every day. Higher in other dungeons as you can spam them and thus triggering the check up more often.

C. It is entirely possible to fail that rng spawn check for many many months in a row and actually quite likely thing to happen at times. Even with say 50% chance it is quite likely to fail 50 times in a row(transmutations, wink wink).

D. And because of all the above it is also possible that only certain "lucky" people are the ones who see the merchant spawns regularly.

 

So no, just because it now spawns less does not mean the spawn chance is changed. You'd have to show actual coded % numbers to actually know if it's changed or not, otherwise it's all just speculation.

Honestly making the spawn rate as a % seems a bit too hard for the current devs if you look at it overall. Wouldnt suprise me if the spawn is set to happen after a total of X runs of the dungeons are done. so you have a guaranteed merchant every give or take 50 HM runs on the server overal xD

That would be the smart way to do it buuuut let's face it, that almost never happens in most mmo games :P

2 weeks since your "screenshot promise" and no valid screenshot until now? When are you finally gonna admit your statement wrong? The merchant no longer exists in CS&HM.

Can confirm this. Today was 90th day doing HM and CS daily on 2 chars - and no merchant spawn. Either a really bad luck, or it's ninja removed.
Ps. It's only 90 days runs in a row cause I just recently came back to playing BnS

I am close to 200 runs of hm/cs now, no MoW. He has been spawning in other zones, which is actually worse.

Thanks for the feedback guys. :)

 

And yeah i do that since the december update with many chars every day too. Nothing. No matter how much this one person (Grimoir) try to tell us the opposite... the merchant in HM/CS is gone. Thats a fact. It is also a fact that if there would be a merchant some one would have showed this to us long time ago.

 

Impossible that this much players do not saw him in over 90 days if this guy would really exist there.

It is really funny how there is absolutely no answer from NCW to such negligible issue. p2w, bugs, lags, etc - all that can be explained as "it's nothing personal, it's strictly business". But to be silent because of merchant?! Well I also don't talk to my wallet.

the deal


https://i.ibb.co/CHtCvQ8/Screenshot-200329-002.jpg

 

 

Regarding RNG tho.. that the way one should think about it is as a big dice with many faces where the spawn probability are part of it . The important thing however are :

 

1.It can work independently regardless of things like how many ppl plays etc..

2.The spawn rate are never disclosed.. can't really say it's removed

3.The most important one is, just knowing the spawn rate will not guarantee one to see the merchant. Remember that in this big dice SAME SIDE can be picked more than once.  It is entirely possible for one to actually never see a merchant in his course of play or always see him/her everytime he/she get into dg's.
