uhm, problem is: if u do not note down the TIME of the drop as well, this will probably be useless, since one explanation for the "server theory" for all those bursts are cycles (!!!), which means, that most of the time each server gives you what is to be expected from a bell curve distribution, but since the randomness has to be based on a (determinated) algorithm, the algorithm can fail insofar, as that, overall in the long run, statistics will be according to the bell curve, but for short cycles, certain effects along the curve are stronger then others (more plans now, more legs later, only below 60es, whatever) but will be balanced out later. In a true random environment this could happen as well, but it should not repeat itself in cycles ... so those bursts would happen a lot less often. (bursts of any kind in this regard dont change the overall longterm occurence of any item, mind that!)
If a System is complex enough, but still determinated, it can go through different equilibriums, which is perceived as chaotic by humans, and the only "constant" that can be perceived is the change from one equilibrium to another, even though the underlying system is still the same and determinated.
So, has blizz used an algorithm for the drops that goes trough cycles (equilibriums) [fail if they did :p] and if so, are the turns of the cycles itself chaotic, complex or linear? If they are linear, the system could, with enough data, be thourougly abused :p If they are chaotic or maybe just complex (well with a LOT of data, complex could still be abused), they enhance the psychological reaction of having the feeling, that agent actions do not effect the outcome of said actions (which means, truly random and chaotic cycle random both are random as they will eventually converge in bell curves, but both are perceived by the human mind as completely different).
good luck with the data!
When this was originally posted several months in the middle of the night I took a screen shoot of the original data before the post was deleted. The short amount of time it took them to remove the thread was surprising since it was posted in the middle of the night
In my own testing it works even though I have only found one legendary and have very little magic find. This is what I have found:
All work in increasing the number ilvl 63's and are the best three ips. I have also noticed that they work when crafting.
