Cant Turn Any Pets Into Greater Pets Since Latest Patch

Game mode: Online official
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvP 1808
Region: USA

So I have tried with 20 pets to turn them into greater pets and I have not gotten a single one to turn into their greater versions. I tried 5 Tigers with their Shadespiced Raw tough meat and 5 sabertooth with shadespiced fatty meat and 5 rhinos with shadespiced bark and 5 pigs with shadespiced puffball mushrooms.

They all give them a 30% chance to become a greater pet and before I would get at least one to turn into its greater version. Now I cant get a single one to do that. did funcom mess the pets up or lower the chances of turning into a greater pet?

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
1.Place a baby animal in pet pen (I’m using the higher tier armored version)
2.Place shadespiced food for a 30% chance of conversion
3.Wait for them to grow

Same experience here, although limited to 15 hyena cubs using feral flesh (20% chance per the Wiki) and 5 sand reapers using human flesh (10% chance).

Chance ?

However, one of my server’s clients just got 2 greater wolves yesterday. I however have not, after about 40 pets and am frustrated. I only attribute this to bad luck. I’ve been to vegas and know for a fact that betting on a win with only a 30% chance is not a good bet. Every roll of the dice, or spin of the wheel is a whole new chance. Odds are not cumulative. I think we are just the unlucky ones my friends.

I heard that :stuck_out_tongue:

I am testing it now and glad you let me know, Sirvink. I admin’d 10 armored pens with 5 each striped hyena whelps. Check this station tomorrow for the results :slight_smile:

I can ‘roll-back’ this server when the results are in.

Partial results are in and you are correct, luck of the draw.

14 greaters out of 40 tries seems to remove this from the bug category. Surprisingly close to the Wiki value for a small sample set, 35% experienced vs. 30% predicted.

Two of the pens ‘reset’. Whelps in place, a 5-stack of food in inventory, nothing on the bottom line to indicate they were growing. I had verified each pen contents were coming along last night with a white progress bar around half, but shut down the server (they were obviously completed prior to that) for the night and found the reset this morning. No biggie since I plan to destroy them, but they restarted by removing and re-inserting the 5-stack. I’ll let them cook just to complete it.

Not a bug, lust luck and not an issue for me. I do feel relieved at the results and plan to continue ‘petting’ now.

BTW, not going to buy any Lotto tickets this month.


Don’t get me started on the lotto, lol. I swore I would never take those odds, but one day, feeling overly weighted down with cash in my pockets, I dropped a few hundred on it. I got a whopping $10 prize.

Thanks for running that test too. I’m sure it will help a lot of others that were suspicious of their luck.
