    Thanks for posting! Looks like the exact same list as I posted.

    I guess you too then only have these 5 trait types as bonus conditions:
    Ruthless
    Strong
    Power Strike
    Vigilant
    Defensive Stance

    While those with 6 DR-badges on rotation has Lucky, Sure Shot, Marksman, Retaliate, Dodge and Ironskin in addition to the ones we have.
    I am collecting badge crafting results. If you want to contribute please note down as much about each crafting as you can in the sequence you craft and send it to me. Recipe, effect and bonus condition is especially interesting.

    I have a Legendary DR badge with Bullet Dodge as the bonus trait... :/ Does that mean I'm not on the 6 DR rotation?

    I would think that mean that you are on the 6 DR rotation. But without seeing a list of your craftings I can't say for sure.

    How many badges did you craft? Do you have a list I can look at?

    The 6 DR-rotation seems like the most balanced of the two.

    So I’m confused. Say you do a rotation using metal edible chemical cloth (like I did.) I’ve now got a set of 38 badges. I then change to edible edible Chem chem. will I get the same as the first badge I crafted on my list?
    2- Say I make 40 badges using my original components then change their order and make 3 more then back to original set will I be on badge 44 of my cycle?
    3. If you use chem, metal, metal cloth will you never get a pattern?
  • magicmagic Member Posts: 197
    1. Yes, I think so, but I haven't tried it myself.
    2. Yes, I think so.
    3. Probably not, or it might just be a lot longer than 38. But the bonus type conditions will give you a pattern here too, I think that pattern stays for all recipes.

    One more then @magic if I use two of each does it matter which two as long as it’s 2 of each?
  • FirekidFirekid Member Posts: 2,392
    @ochito I’m on a 1 DR cycle apparently but it’s different to yours. Is each persons different or are there more than 2?

    I don't know. It has to be tested.

    It would be interesting to see your cycle @Firekid can you write it down, or post a recording of your crafting?

    Excuse the scruffiness!
    Also have some strange going ons in our guild. 3rd cycle changed from 29 onwards no changes to order of components or anything for one person.

    The two cycles are the same for everyone. You just start at a different point. If you compare them you'll see that they are the same. You just need to make 3-4 badges to find out in which cycle you are and at what spot.
  • magicmagic Member Posts: 197
    Yeah, you are on the 1-DR-badge. Your nr.3 are the same as my nr. 1 and from there it's the same.

    @Pic nah I didn't post this for credit as a said before, just wrote it on wrong way (English is not my first language). I posted because it is pretty damn unfair odds for others and I guess I don't care that much if I get bit heat after letting out "secret" shared by certain groups.
    I'd like to see the game improve and telling about a "loophole" in public might get something happening with the devs

    For players to take advantage of this they need huge amounts of components.

    This will promote more play, more spending on component packs and boosters to farm components. More enthusiasm for component events. More spending on reroll tokens and radios to buff new survivors and flushing out rosters.

    I'm not sure this "revelation" is a bad thing for NGs economy.

    Most whales already got a plethora of badges, so boosting the interest and drive and modest spending of mid pack players... Might benefit NGs.

    Interesting...

    So
    You want to see the game improve. But unfair that you're not on a cycle for 7 DR badges? So it would have been okay if you were? TBH idk about loop hole. It says recipe. One was found? Idk if it's intentional. I am pretty much set on badges myself. I have been for a while now. But someone did work hard on this. I'm sure it wasn't easy. We've all been looking for a recipe on how to obtain the desired types of badges. It's not something I'd keep secret from any player. But I sure wouldn't complain after I tried it. Didn't get what I wanted. Then took the high road saying it's for the good of the game. Many ways this could have went out to the community. If it's not intentional. They'll fix it.

    It may be the case that this could have been put out in a more diplomatic way, but the OP said that English isn't their first language so I'm willing to cut some slack. I think the question of "why doesn't everyone start with the same baseline?" is a valid one.

    I'm glad that this information was brought to light. I'm on the "1 DR cycle" but now I can tailor my crafting so that Epic and Legendary frags and components don't get put towards a rubbish Critical Chance badge. This information will make me feel less crapped on and will actually give me some encouragement to care about crafting again.

    We haven't heard a peep from NG about this so maybe the only thing they're thinking is "took them long enough to figure that out..." :)

    Would I have been quiet if I had been on the better cycle? Most likely yes. I now kept quiet for for few months just to see if there is another recipe so the odds would be more even but none was found so I decided to say something. Most likely I would have kept my mouth shut if there had been different recipes with different (and better) cycles but now you are randomly put on 1 of the 2 and what you do doesn't change the odds for DR

    Yes, I too am on the crap B cycle, but even so it shows me very useful information.

    Specially that I should use AAAA, BBBB, CCCC or DDDD much more frequently than ABCD.

    Then I can always pop in ABCD if there is a badge in cycle that I want.

    In my test runs I got the most DR from AAAA. Random chance? Possibly.

    But simply knowing what 100% WON'T get me a badge I want tells me when to try something else.

    Useful indeed.

    Hey I got Lucky as bonus trait last night, using Me/Ch/Me/Me. (ACAA)

    It was on slot 8 in B-cycle

    I made a note only because I never see this. Like ever.

    For the 1-DR-pattern the only bonus you can get with a sure DR is Hunter, Warrior, Assault. And if you use a Scout, Scout, Bruiser, you can never get the bonus. Thought?

    I'm on the 1 DR pattern and on my DR badges I have class bonuses for the ones you mentioned as well as for Bruiser, Scout, and Shooter.

    I guess you are on the 6-DR rotation then?

    You might have gotten these with another recipe, but not with the MeEdChCl-recipe.

    Ah, I see your point. I hardly ever used that recipe in the past. Thanks!

    @Pic you nailed it. This is NOT a cheat. This is NOT unfair. Someone put a tremendous amount of time, thought and resources into finding a pattern. They were kind enough to share it. The OP has already stated he would not be so quick to be posting here if he were on the "better" pattern. I am sorry but it sounds to me like a case of sour grapes, so now let's post it and ruin it for all. Congrats to the person who made the discovery. Unfortunately i feel their generosity in sharing their knowledge has been betrayed. And fyi i am not on the "better' pattern.

    Could the difference between people having the 1DR or 6DR cycle be the level of their craftsman?
