Diablo® III

Test on this Loot Server tinfoilhat BS

I started doing this same thing on my own last night. Last night I found leges on these two servers:

50
59

I found leges on another run last night but forgot to check the server.

Didn't comb for servers beforehand--waited till I found a legendary.

ive been keeping data for awhile and the only IP that has consistantly given me 1 -2 legends was 38. I got it 4 times. Other than that it has been pretty random. Ip's like 168 give me 2 legs while everytime i run 70 - 80 i get 0 legendaries. Most of my legs have been coming from random 3 digit odd numbers. these legs range from 200million SoJ to Top IK/Zuni/and nat sets.

I Think RNG is RNG. i was finding more Sets/legs when i was just playing and not checking than when i started checking.

Elm remember, I cant use the data if you are purposely looking for specific kinds of server, you need to be oblivious or uncaring of what server you play on.

Tpx, thankyou

Stever u are bloody awesome, excellent job there, so much data, thanks a bunch

I know. That's why I told you I was NOT combing for servers beforehand. I just played as normal, and if I found a legendary, I checked the server afterwards.

Look up the poisson distribution and binomial distribution on wikipedia. See what they look like when the "rate" or "probability" are low.

In short, LPEs are known to be streaky.

so what you're telling me is i need to ip block and port block the bad servers and only allow myself onto the good ones? sounds like a plan...so what's the ip ;)

honestly, i would say some merit exists to this claim. i have been playing since release, and i get my legendary/set drops in "bursts". yesterday, i got nats sight, then today i get strongarm bracers and vigilance in same game...and fairly decent rolls as well. i get most my legendary drops in the morning usually (i play in the morning early, then play at night) when fewest people online. I will run a netstat on my drops next time this happens.

also consider that it could be something entirely different altogether. like a global server drop number that if increased or decreased changes drop rates. something like this triggering in a fashion beneficial to the players, would take immediate effect. and during low population times, would seem like the best time to "adjust" server drop rates. so i think you should also include date/time in your findings

INTRO:
Ok so I'm pretty sure most everyone knows what's this ridiculous Loot server theory going around. Personally I think it's complete tinfoil hat bull!@#$, however I must admit there are times when playing that I find either lots of legends or none at all for a long time. There must be a reason for this, whether this loot is dependent on a server or home comp algorithm or something else entirely, I don't know. So I'm wanting to conduct a little test here. This is just to collect some data, and I don't need you to change anything or do anything differently.

WHAT I NEED:
Basically while you are farming, if/when you come across a legend drop, before leaving the game I would like for you to do the following:
1) Run CMD
2) In CMD, type what's in the outer quotation marks "netstat -n | find "1119""
3) While you're ingame you should find two IP's ending with that number. One with 193 before it, like 193.1119 and another IP with a random number before the 1119 (eg. xx.1119, xxx.1119).
4) Come here to this thread and post the following info
-The entire IP that holds the random number
-US, EU or SEA
-The act#
-The level of legend that dropped (if you want to brag about it, that's fine to)

If you can get your friends to participate, I'd appreciate it, I'm wanting to collect a large sample size then present a result. So if there are any servers that give better loot or whether its actually random or if there is a type of exploit to be found, we will likely find it here. Personally I just want this done to prove that blizzard isn't stupid enough to make such an awful and ridiculous system.

IMPORTANT: The test must be conducted out by people who don't go looking for specific servers

Lame question but, has Blizzard ever said anything about these speculations? Something in the line of "no, servers don't have different drop rates" or anything at all on topic?

208- 1 legend 62 sword Sever loot wasn't good

PS: this whole thing is a myth in my opinion. I haven't even looted more then 2 legends in the last 14 days or so with 30-40 hours of playtime, maybe more. Some of those runs trying to target specific servers i have hit before. I stopped logging anything about 10 days ago as i got tired of not looting anything. Borderline quitting from bad rng.
