It is very obvious that PID takes priority over skill level when it comes to who gets resources first which should not happen. This is blatantly obvious in activities such as mining where people constantly push outside there weight class and out mining others who have a MUCH higher mining level It makes no sense that someone with say 50 mining can out mine someone with 75 mining simply because they got lucky with PID and it makes no sense that people who just unlock the magic level to tele grab can instantly match or outmatch other people who have a much higher magic level simply because PID as well. You just learned how to do a spell you shouldn't instantly be outclassing someone that put more hours in than you.

The obvious change is to have Skill levels take priority when there is a significant different in stat levels (aka 5+). This makes certain activities where you have to beat someone way more consistent.

This also will combat bots seeing as on average the typical bot will have a lower skill level than a long term player, meaning they have much lower chance of botting the resources from other players.

Every time you hit the rock, there is a chance you can get the ore. That chance is based on your level. When people of a lower level get an ore, it was because they got lucky before you did. They do not get more of the ore than you, it is that you remember when they did more than otherwise. This makes it seem to you that they got more than you.

This is not speculation or anything, this is strictly on experience. I'm not talkin people sneaking 2-3 ores every once in a while this is 10+ to a full inventory of ore. I have 80+ mining and destroyed people who had 90+ mining. I've spammed click the ore and its gone before my character even gets to start mining. A person with almost 20 levels lower mining shouldn't be able to do that. Whatever algorithm they are using it needs to be adjusted to favor people with strictly higher skill levels. Imo It has to be pid based because whoever gets the ore switches off periodically. The fact that i dread fighting ore rocks against someone in there 60's to low 70's vs someone in there high 80's or 90's proves something is wrong. Don't get me started on the lvl 3 bots at rimmington with 40-50 mining an addy pics getting way more ore than they should be against me. I know the game is rng based but at a point it just gets ridiculous.

The fact its all random. yes a low level can get it before others and yes if you spam, you are more likely to get the ore because you are changing your number, and one of turns out to be the right one.
