Wink Loot Chests!

I have been having this a little thought in the back of my head for a while and finally decided to post it here

Almost everyone that have been doing any real looting have come across skull chests with famed and legendary items. But then I was reading another post here on the forum and realized the rating never goes over 3.

Could that mean that, if the game gets any updates soon and doesn't lose their players we might get better weapons or gear that would get the rating 5? Like super duper legendary weapons? Something involved with the next story chapter or new enemies in the game?

Funny thing you brought that up. I was thinking the same thing recently. Either they are going to do that, or it's a boo boo they still need to correct.

I would think Crudes are ranked at 1, Commons at 2, Rares at 3, Fames/ Cursed Blades at 4, and Legendaries at 5 regardless of whatever was dropped in those respective pouches, chests, and skulls. Instead, we see some other weird way the value of what it dropped to be ranked at 3 or less. Sounds like a simple mathematical game flaw at work there. You know, kinda like those geniuses did when they launched the Hubble telescope. Took them 3 years to fix that mirror. rofl

ROFL!

I suspect "Plat" is correct on the basis of their Loot Rating System... I think it WAS intended to be a Ranking from Crude to Legendary, but somehow got messed up in coding.

I have looked at the coding and can see where they quite possibly made their mistakes, probably because like MOST things, they were in too much of a rush to release the update... So it ended up released before they figured out all the bugs.

CarribeanThunder is a pirate wannabe
I've always believed that they rank it so that loot pouches are 1/5, loot chests are 2/5, skull chests are 3/5, and whatever invisible containers we get that we can never see are ranked 4/5 and 5/5. And considering it's been years that this whole looting thing has been out and not fixed, I wouldn't be surprised if that were the true intention.
...Sorry, I can't be serious about these things anymore.

I can see what Meg says being possible. I don't loot because it's a big waste of my time since I never get anything useful anymore, but to be honest, I hope that's the case. Some new loot that for some reason happens to be more worthy of a 4/5 or 5/5 than a legendary weapon.
