loot scaling with gamestage - any explanation or tips? in Discussion and Requests Posted August 10, 2020 I have found the same issue. Progression and loot is a little off currently. Tier 1 stone age feels pretty good but tier 2 iron age feels short. It doesn't take much effort to get into steel and is possible to skip iron all together sometimes. I don't quite understand the getting stone tools when i'm game stage 100 or more according to the loot probability templates I should stop getting stone at game stage 46. Yet I still do.
