Default 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.

DMV, non-static solo group, 0 recognition

650 kills
10 boss fights
Rate: 1.54% (approximate)

700 fights
12 boss fights
Rate: 1.71% (approximate)

750 fights
12 boss fights
Rate: 1.6% (exact)

800 fights
12 boss fights
Rate: 1.5% (exact)

850 fights
12 boss fights
Rate: 1.41% (approximate)

900 fights
12 boss fights
Rate: 1.33% (approximate)

950 fights
12 boss fights
Rate: 1.26% (approximate)

1000 fights
13 boss fights
Rate: 1.3% (exact)

Recognition level 100 testing:

50 fights
0 boss fights
Rate: 0% (exact)

100 fights
1 boss fight
Rate: 1% (exact)

150 fights
1 boss fight
Rate: 0.67% (approx)

200 fights
2 boss fights
Rate: 1% (exact)

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

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.

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

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