I know drop rates have been a topic of debate often shot down by robust data collection. I have played this game for a long while but the past week or so the drop rates seem to have noticeably reduced on gear pieces. For example, over 40 attempts (maybe more but this is all I have tracked so far) I received ONE drop on stun cuffs. I will continue to track more closely but something really does seem off. My guild mates have noticed this as well.

    Countering data with feelings is not going to win the battle.

    In a small sample size, just about any outcome is possible, it doesnt prove anything. Just keep collecting data and you will see nothing has changed.

    I can appreciate the facts over feelings sentiment. I am not claiming to have proof of anything. Just reaching out to the community to see if anyone else has noticed this, collected data from a larger sample, or has any other insight. Not meant as an accusation.

    I’ve noticed absolutely no difference at all.

    No one is going to have enough data to accurately depict the drop rate in a small period of time, and other feeling the same way you do, is not proof.

    The insight is always the same when this comes up, over a small sample size many things can be seen, but they are not evidence of anything as a whole. A string of bad RNG can show up in small samples and lead to a false conclusion about the overall drop rate.

    Same. And I'd bet if the OP tracks the data (like countless others before), he'd find that the drop rates for purple gear are the same as they have always been ~20%.

    Also, have your guildmates track and record their data as well, so you can at least have a decent sample size.
