I can't believe these threads still exist....
Just because you experienced something that is highly unlikely doesn't mean its not RNG.
Not getting legendaries? You're just getting unlucky.
Found 3 legs in 5 min? Grats you're getting very lucky.
It really IS that simple.
I work in a casino. I've seen black hit on roulette 26 times in a row. The wheel was not rigged in any way.
When given enough time and chances crazy things just happen sometimes when it comes to probabilties, thats how you know that it IS in fact random.
I think you've put your finger on the pulse, and the very crux! perhaps at the beginning, and perhaps even now Blizzard has refrained from manipulating the "drop formula." But I ask you?...if you're first and foremost a publicly traded company who's indebted to its' share holders...(see http://www.dailyfinance.com/2011/11/17/why-activision-blizzard-will-never-be-great-again/)...and then perhaps, for the Blues who talk to you here on this forum...you're real concerns are never really going to be on the top of "their list."
You are now here to be milked like a cow...well, at least as long as you continue to moo. And don't get the wrong idea. It's not anything personal!...just business!
So now...they're "calling all of you D3 warriors!"...please just step up to your nearest online Activision Blizzard cattle truck and repeat after me...mooooooooo...mooooooooo!
Because the new company line is:
"Our warriors are the best warriors, and they'll always make really tasty hamburgers!"
Didn't read the link? No intelligent comment?
Guess you'll just have to line up with the rest of the cows!
11 runs Act 3 MP4 and no key.
Make that 14 runs and no key,all I can say is BS!
11 runs Act 3 MP4 and no key.
It's MP4 and yes I get 5 stacks first,make that 14 runs and no key.
14 Runs on MP4 without a key is unlikely... But possible, thanks to rng.
Yesterday I made 3 Runs with my mate, only one key dropped (0 for me^^). The day before yesterday, I made 3 runs alone and got 3 keys! So did they ninja nerf the drop rate? Is is more likely for a key to drop in SP? No... RNG!
Same for legendarys... Got 4 in a row (3 of the 4, including one set item dropped in 5 minutes), next day none... That's how it works!
All in all, I don't fell like drop rates have been nerfed since 1.04. Ad it is definitely no where near 1.03....
Is this just a "basic" business decision?...and why drop rates might be being altered on the fly?
"The Digital Divide
It's easy to see why Activision Blizzard has been slow to embrace social gaming. Why trade its thinning ranks of World of Warcraft gamers paying monthly ransoms for the pocket change in ad revenue it can generate through ad-supported games and digital upgrades?
If it's going to quietly fade away, it may as well do it on its own terms.
The gaming industry is changing, and not necessarily for the better if you're a fat-cat publisher. The playing field is leveling in the digital space that's actually growing. The old days of just a handful of console game developers cornering the market are toast.
Activision Blizzard remains a sturdy company, and it's not a surprise that many stock newsletters recommend the shares -- especially at today's low prices. However, now it's simply a matter of value instead of returning to greatness. The game as Activision Blizzard knew and mastered it is over."
[quote]After playing the game for over 1000 hours at max/near max magic find you will notice when drops seems normal, and when they're not. Random or not. Just because you have an opinion on what's RNG and what isn't, does not mean that is how it works. Your opinion means nothing to me.
+1 Exactly what is said above....this game at times seems like someone at Blizzard 'flips a switch' and you get nothing.....the issues you've all talked about here happened in the first month or month and a half....you're all crazy CRAZY to keep playing this game....I would in January give PoE an honest try, not just 30 minutes (like the Blizz fan boys do) .... you would find it superior in every way, especially if you liked Diablo 2....NO need to mindlessly farm like a robot---every, EVERY drop can be transmuted into something UBER....disregard all of this, if you are a mindless sheep and/or 'waiting for the expansion zombie'. I post because Blizz pissed me off about this scam Jay created.

...you forgot to turn sarcasm off, but no worries. I'll shovel you droppings off the side of the road. No need to thank me.
It's not that, Blizzard made the drop rates so wacky in D3 with intentions pushing the RMAH, I mean your chances of finding upgrades or even decent loot are very slim in this game...
Haven't you noticed all the level 8 Paragons players with set items?...yea. Nuff said.
