Having 10 luck makes this game way too easy

Every casino in Vegas I hit the Jackpot on the slots within 15 minutes of playing. The beautiful part was I would win money playing blackjack about 1000 caps short of getting banned, then sit down and play slots, and eventually hit the jackpot. After winning I simply stock up on the best weapons and ammo from Gun Runners and Mick and Ralph's secret department (where the grenade machine gun is). Now everything is easy breezy, and I'm playing on hard/very hard (though when I run into Cazador swarms I put the difficulty on normal).

I stopped gambling after my second playthrough because I felt the same.

You wanna hear something funny? At Gomorrah the limit is 9,000 caps you have to win before getting banned. I was at about 8000 playing blackjack, so I decided I needed to give myself some leeway with the slots, so I tried to lose 2000 caps back on purpose playing blackjack.

Well guess what? I have two 10's, I hit so I can bust, and I get an ace. I have eighteen, I hit again so I can bust, and I get a 3. This KEPT HAPPENING. With the exception of a few times, like it would give me a high card so I could bust, but I swear it was uncanny how many times I tried to bust on purpose, and I would hit 21. So I decided when I got low cards, I would just stay. Well the dealer kept getting 15's and 16's, and it would hit, and bust.

TRYING to lose 2000 caps back, I ended up winning the casino limit, so I had to reload a save. WTF LOL

You say the game is too easy but you lower the difficulty when you run into harder enemie?

Does not compute

I love 10 luck, I won 16,000 caps in The Tops in about 2 minutes.

Shush! Someone may see this and go to the developers website for suiggestions-complain it makes the game to easy than they will nerf it in some form on the next DLC.

So all the caps in the world and you still can't take on a Cazador? What happens when your rare weapons and armor degrade and require 10k+ caps EACH to fix? Have you already dropped the 50k on implants? Are your followers sufficiently decked out? Tried Hardcore yet? How was Dead Wind Cavern...?

No hate dude, but you can't claim "too easy" and then add "when I'm fighting coyotes".

Luck does make things a little _quicker_ but it doesn't make anything easier IMO. 5 million caps isn't going to get you through the Deathclaw Promontory on VHARD/Hardcore.

Now if you want to talk about "the Alien Blaster makes this game way too easy" then we can debate :)

lol.. if you're not fighting enemies on very hard.. why is it on very hard? I guess all of the walking in the desert takes a lot out of your character?

So how do you suggest the game represents 10 Luck? People would be complaining they don't win often enough if the nerfed it.

Either don't bleed out the Casinos or don't take 10 Luck.
