Mynet recently changed the special summons from 5% to 3%. What does that mean for us?
One of my alliance mates and I have been working on monte carlo simulator for VC summons. You can find the source code on github here. (Note: if you compile and run, the source currently has special summon still at 5%. Adjust it yousrelf if you want to run it for 3%.) It contains the known regular VC summons. The calculator was not being with user friendliness in mind, so you may see some oddities.
The simulator takes a number of assumptions, some of them maybe wrong but I want to get them out there so we know what we're working with. You can adjust the assumptions yourself before running the monte carlo.
1) VC UR rate is 1%
2) There is a '…

Mynet has made a number of
smallchanges that in isolation have a small effect on vit usage, but in aggregate have a serious impact, making vit and shoes much more valuable (and scare) than they used to be. Many of these changes were small andphased in slowly across a number of events, but they all point to the same thing: higher vit cost and more encouragement to use the now more expensive shoes.
So let's go over a history of the changes made designed to drain people…
