That's total bull, kiraone. The reason after SM is likely to work is that the chance of getting a socket is relative to the amount of people logged on WITH sockets. If the server notices a shortage, it will raise the chances, and if it notices an abundancy, it will lower them.

Sorry Cry, but imho the thing with counting the socket items online is kinda bull too. Sure, i heared about that rumor too, but there are several points against is.
It would just cost too much time and CPU usage if the server ad to check all online items, everytime soneone uses ArtisanWind and the theory of counting the socket items would also mean, that the chance for getting a socket undquiet high on a new server. But i never heared of much tc sockets after a new server was brought up. And in there end is much easier to use a silple randomizer with a fixed chance, than changing it every second. Too much programming work for allmost no effect.

I still think all ArtisanWind depents completly on your luck, equal what time you use it. Also don't belive in that 50% chance thing.

Well it could be based on how many items recieved a socket from the guy. not that hard.
When $socketed
$x++
WEnd
If $x > 255 Then
$chance-1
ElseIf &#036;x < 150
&#036;chance+1

I agree with Djinn... it doesn&#39;t make sense that they would add the extra logic limiting based on other sockets either online or how many were already made

yes we see from your nice elemantary illustration of pseudo code that it&#39;s not a hard algorithm to write, but that&#39;s just as plausible as

if (trade_window.open && time <= maint + 5 mins)
{
give_socket();
}

lol.

It&#39;s probably something more like this:

person puts a met in with the item, pick a number between 1 and 1000 right now, (not predetermined), now pick another number between 1 and 1000, do they match? if so, get a socket.... if not... well don&#39;t.

lol wait, that&#39;s not pseudo code you wrote, it&#39;s BASIC. nice. (been a long time, I&#39;m feeling slow today)
