I noted a marked decrease in drop rates this weekend. I have lectured extensively on statistics and understand RNG but something changed this weekend (over 20 hours of play). Did anyone else notice this or is it just me?
I would love to hear from Blizzard if drop rate manipulation in fact happens or not so we can choose to accept it or not.
I posted in [url="http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6893559887?page=4#63"]a similar thread[/url] recently, and I’d highly suggest you check it out, because it goes into the nature of probabilities and [url="http://us.battle.net/d3/en/game/guide/items/equipment#magic-find"]how Magic Find works in Diablo III[/url].
What you are experiencing is simply a result of RNG. The drop rates of items were not decreased.
RNG or not. The fact is after every patch loot is lucrative.
Few days later it is crap again.
