I have a game running, in which, after getting enough element for the lvl 2 Shields, I do not find any element anymore. Absolutely none. I have flown through about hexes or more, 8-10 of which were resource patches, sometimes multiple, and I did not receive any element after mining.
Please hurry fixing this. It makes playing the game incredibly boring if you cannot advance.
I would safeguard in code against players never finding anything useful for very long stretches of time. I am fully on board with the rng throwing you a curve ball, but this is just plain annoying.
