1 & 2. We didn’t change either the drop rates or upgrade rates, my guess on this is you’re just unlucky. 😐
(4.) And as dominiccc said, it can’t be too easy to farm and upgrade to maintain a healthy market, which is what we want and not a ”free item pure pk server”.
3. The mage cube bug is already fixed and will be applied next restart, which should be very soon.
And about active gms, we’re all here on the forum or ingame almost every day. Sometimes we announce we’re online and sometimes we don’t. If you can’t catch any of us ingame you’re very welcome to send us a pm and i guarantee you we will reply very fast.
