I was wondering this too :/


The system's numbers got tweaked to better display the pets' actual rarities vs active accounts. I don't know what the numbers were before but here's an example of how they could have changed

Before the update the rarity threshold could have been
  • very common - 1 for every 100 accounts
  • common - 1 for every 400 accounts
  • uncommon - 1 for every 1000 accounts
  • rare - 1 for every 4000 accounts

After the update the threshold could now be
  • very common - 1 for every 400 accounts
  • common - 1 for every 1500 accounts
  • uncommon - 1 for every 3000 accounts
  • rare - 1 for every 5000 accounts

This would explain why so many uncommons dropped to common or very common if before they had been in the 1000-2000 range. With the second list a 1 in 1000 would now be in the very common tier rather than the "low" uncommon it would have been before. Again these are numbers I just pulled out of thin air


ThatOneIntrovert wrote:As much as I love this update to the pets I also dislike it.
1) I lost a ton of rare pets and they became uncommon or commons and I had 23 rare now I only have 17.
2) I sorted my pets by rarity and so did a lot of others so now I have to go through ALL of my pets just to reorganize them which I think is kinda crappy.
3) so many of my pets are just all over the place now and I don’t even know what they are worth now and it’s very very confusing.

1) 23 to 17 rares isn't that big a change honestly. Losing 6 rares is kinda a lot if you don't have a lot already but I wouldn't call 23 "a ton" of rares.
2) Pets always have a chance to change rarities every time they updated them. I've always had to move two or three pets up or down a rarity group whenever they did the monthly(ish) updates. This was just a very big update so a lot more pets have to be moved if you group by rarity.
3) The pets have a rarity label, that's what they're technically worth. Ex. Whatever you would have traded a 2017 common for that's pretty much what it's worth even if it was an "uncommon" before this update. The only pets that you really have to take demand into account are store pets, old rare+ pets, and the rares list (which is pretty much very old rare+ pets).

I hate this update. I've lost value on most of my pets. Like 80% of my uncommon and higher pets are basically worthless now, they're common and below.

arent we supposed to see the bar thou? or is it just to show. cause if its supposed to show i have never seen it ever player this game. but most of my uncommons have went common or something so i guess that helps even thou i dont have many to begin with
Only look for uncommons and above pretty much. I work to much so when I get on I fix trades or accept. All my omgsc-commons are always for trade for better pets.

Yeah, I agree with you all. I also don’t like this update. I lost a bunch of uncommons.

I posted this a long time ago on page 13 and I’m not really happy with how the image turned out but I figured maybe it’ll help:

If anyone wants to make a better illustration or text description, please do!

For everyone who is confused on what happened:

..... this is awful I know but I hope it helps?
(THE PROPORTIONS ARE FAKE)

(Super low quality because I did this when I was supposed to be working on a paper that was due one hour after I posted lol)

This doesn’t cover everything that happened because I don’t think I can use a 2D image to illustrate all the factors that went into the rarity changes. But I think this covers the main factor
Was your pet adopted December 18, any year, or December 24, 2011? It is most likely an older pet! CLICK ME to identify your pet!

Context, consistency, and clear antecedents are golden.
I neither read nor speak between the lines. But I will analyze your language.

@nickjr, i understand that pretty well, thanks for the picture! i guess i'm just confused on the staff pets that went from common to uncommon and the ones that went from uncommon to very common? but maybe that's an account activity thing?

@Beemo Yeah it's likely a combo of account activity and evening the rarity tiers. If you look at all past staff pets, you'll see that they gradually go from rare to very common through the years. Which makes sense since there's less older pets and a lot of older accounts that have those pets are probably inactive. In general all pets are slowly increasing in rarity over time so common to uncommon makes sense if it was the 2013 staff litter for example. As for uncommon to very common - a lot of recent uncommon pets were seemingly wrongly in that tier when they were actually much more common. In reference to that chart nickjr made, I feel like the uncommon probably took up a lot of space previously and extended more to the left than it should have, hence a lot of uncommon to common/very common pets.

Oh the 2016 staff litter is weirding me out though because 8 out of 30 are common but the others are very common and every other staff litter, every pet in the same litter has the same rarity haha. I'm assuming the common ones are just barely above the very common tier though (or the very commons are just barely below common tier)
