Recognition
 
I recently took on a project involving me testing a few thousand kills at 0 recognition and a few thousand at 100 recognition to see if boss encounter rates changed, as the popular theory holds. I took this project on because I was pissed off at people who make wild claims with no proof, but I'd really rather not do it if I don't need to. Glitch, could you please tell us whether or not recognition actually reduces boss encounter rates? I'll find out anyway, but you'll save me a lot of headache!


Edit: I'll keep track of my kills here, it will show what I have so far :)


Recognition level 0 testing is complete:

End results: 1.3% encounter rate.

In the spirit of Christmas, will you save me a few months of grinding and tabulating by telling us what recognition does? :)

I know exactly what it does

It determines how awesome other people think you are. That is all.

Shaddup. My test will show whether or not it does what people think it does, would just prefer a confirmation and save myself a lot of effort.

I agree, but no one has done documented testing on it so I will, since a pretty good chunk of nodders believe that's what it does.

Blaze 12-26-2014 07:27 AM

how goes the testing?

Gooddevil 12-26-2014 10:12 AM

I don't know if it's coincidence but since I raised it to 100 I never had random boss like ever.

Blaze 12-26-2014 10:20 AM

i have got randoms with 100

I'm at almost 650 kills, had to take a break due to the holiday and for crafting snowface potions, but will resume today.

Read Daer's original post in this thread, he updates it with kills and bosses

Soxson 12-26-2014 07:31 PM

i r impatient

hotshot64 12-26-2014 07:56 PM

Then do your own testing, this will likely take me several months to complete all the tests.

hotshot64 12-27-2014 02:21 PM

650 fights so far, updated total in original post.

hotshot64 12-28-2014 04:53 PM

Updated original post, up to 700 fights now. Posting them separately now.

hotshot64 01-02-2015 01:14 PM
