Why are legendary drop rates DOWN?

They are down, 100% sure of it. There is no other reason my drop rate for legendarys has been cut down over half of what it was a few weeks ago, also, fiery brimstones are more expensive. Why do you guys change drop rates so much? WTF?

Something random doesn't happen as much.

Blame creators of the game.

Is everyone so terrified of this forum that they won't post on their d3 account?

Yeah I noticed that, too.

I played for 60 minutes last night, only got 3 legendaries, I got 2 of those in the first 10 minutes, then another one around 45th minute.

That proves that the drop rates are manipulated!!!

OP won't accept that RNG is the answer so here goes....

Blizzard constantly stealth buffs/nerfs specific skills, drops, runes, passives, monsters, affixes, MF, GF, IP addresses, paragon level ranges and classes.

They have a back end team that works on this 24/7. They factor in details like elite kills, login times, farming routes, and how long since you've last played.

The existence of this team is why PvP has been delayed so long.
Blizzard can't possibly work on patches as quick as we want them to because of the constant stealth nerfs/buffs needed to keep this game going.

I have tested all of this with my 30 friends and am 100% positive I'm right.

I wouldn't know myself. Can't seem to get a legendary to drop. I'm lucky to see one every 10-15 hours or so...I've had 3 drop for me. (Mind you my paragon is only level 13 at the moment).

Hmmm, not down for me at all. 4 legs on Tuesday, 3 legs Wednesday, 3 legs last night. Total of 7 hours played, 10 legs (7 legs, 3 set).

Why are you guys always so hostile when players post this? He is asking a question, YOU people are bad for Diablo3 and Blizzard.

OP, I was absolutely sure drop rates were down. I went from getting 1 per run to nothing for weeks. 2 things happend.

1 - changed a shield and amulet that lowered my MF. I did not think it MF mattered as much as I was in MP5, I added them back and got a Legendary next run.

2 - I sometimes run with a high MF wiz. when we run I get more, also right after I play MP with him, my luck for legendaries is better for the next few runs. Mix in some MP if you do not already, JUST IN CASE there is anything to that and try for yourself. It can't hurt.

Tell me Carnac the Magnificent, If it's jus random then why do people stack MF?
