TBH, it sounds like you play too much. You hunt 24 hours a day some days? It's not healthy for your brain or your body. I recommend taking some breaks from the game and coming to grips with the reality that a 7000 ped loss after a year of heavy hunting means you've been doing quite well in terms of returns. I think the problem is that you're expecting to profit or at least to cycle peds indefinitely with little loss.

Most people who play that much lose a lot more. Take some time away from the game, cut back the hours and your perspective on the game may improve.

i can answer, the problem is you can't listen.
700usd is less than what am up to pay in one month, come back in years when you're not a noob anymore, answers are already in the thread, i won't multi quote amongst the different posts, it's useless.

simple, you get lucky on your first run and keep thinking it has to stay like this. Then you spend all your peds on next 10 runs. That is how EU is supposed to work, making you spend so a few ones can win back what you've spent

I've already wrote that you have to be prepared to a long bad period due to this.
(not mentionning other points we tried to make you understand)

When luck is making you hit a global or a hof, it has nothing to do with the gear you are using. When luck gives you loot, the reason why you get loot is only luck and nothing else.

1coolboy8, simply ignore Ed - what he said in the quote above is 100% nonsense, you do not pay for other peoples loot.

There are dozends of studies on PCF showing that your long term return is a certain % of what you spent - Ed perfectly knows that, {removed}


And, there are terribly long losing streaks in between, simply get used to it - hunting smaller stuff for a while or doing something completely different (like mining) or simply taking a break might help bringing your luck back.

let's consider another approach:

The best thing you could do is to use your amp and scopes when you are in a lucky run and use no gear all the rest of time. That way, your returns will be maxed. But we can't know for sure when you'll have luck on your next run, so the reasons and advices you can re-read in the whole thread to minimize your risks.

Don't think your luck will stay forever.
