I've been playing Act III on inferno for about 2 1/2 hours now and have easily come across 10-15 elite packs. I'm getting lots of XP and enjoying it. But, I've noticed that every single elite pack has the same affixes: reflects damage, illusionist/minion (admittedly, those two switch out), fast, and mortar. Is there some bug in the game right now, or is this just some really jacked up situation where the code is repeating itself for every elite pack?
It's not a big deal: I'm not trying to complain. I just don't understand how every elite pack for 2 1/2 hours has the exact same affixes. Surely, Blizzard wrote the code better than that.

Yeah. Sometime is like that, sometime is not.
Alright, sounds good. Glad to know it's not a bug. :)
Seems like it. I have been tinkering around town and with items I'm looting. I am not moving very fast.
People say random is random, but when I played my DH, every other elite pack had reflect. It was noticeable, because I would fall over dead very quickly. Not complaining, but it was something I noticed.
Can't say I really notice a pattern on my barb or wizard, I guess that is because they are a joke playing cm or wrath no matter the affix's.
Yeah, I was playing with my witch doctor the other night I posted this and reflect was on them all. I haven't noticed a pattern with my CM Wiz either.
As a side note, a funny thing that made me laugh: the very first elite pack I ran into after creating this thread had completely different affixes. And, I didn't see a pattern the rest of the evening. lol

so you can tell that there is a up to a 4/15 chance of getting reflect damage (30% chance)
(ok very simplistic. cos you have 4 chances of getting missile dampening, but not quite since any chance that succeeds causes the probability pool to exclude either the strong cc or defensive pools)
approximately. your chances of getting
Missile Dampening is 1/15 * 1/8 *4 = 3.33%
the chance of getting vortex is
1/15 * 1/3 *4 = 8.88%
the chance of getting waller is
1/15 * 4 = 26.66%
because your probability pool of 15 affixes are

I can confirm that over the past several weeks, something changed and the majority of elite packs I encounter now have RD. My guess has been that it's the only thing that kills anyone so they turned up the crank on it to keep us awake.
Except the entire point of this thread is that it's been different LATELY. No one's questioning how affixes get chosen in general. RD isn't coming up with the same frequency that it did a few weeks ago. Or at least that's how it seems.
