So after telling everyone that their interpretations based on their own in-game experiences are invalid because of insufficient data points, or something, you’re now telling me you’re basing your own monumentally arrogant viewpoint all comes down to some extracted data and your own in game experiences?
I have to say this made me laugh out loud.
The only conclusion I can draw is that you’re either the most unjustifiably arrogant person I’ve come across in a long time, or you’re a dev lurking in disguise.
Assuming that’s not the case, I’ll say it all again for you. Unless you have access to actual code, then the conclusions you’ve drawn from your extracted data and in game experiences are no more or less valid than anyone else’s.
When did you do all this in game testing? What types/sources of loot? What areas? How do you know the loot you collected in the areas you collected them is working in the same way as that in other areas from other sources? How do you know things haven’t changed?
Here’s a small example of how things can break. I’m sure you’ll dismiss it, but here it is anyway.
I just did the same run mentioned several times above. Same amount of luck. I killed the same boss 12 times, as well as multiple other mods in the area. Maybe 30 kills in total. Usually, I’ll get bags from 70% to 80% of those kills. I did not receive a single bag. Not once.
This happens sometimes, not often, but occasionally. It happens to everyone else I know sometimes. I have to log out, and back in again, then suddenly the loot drops will return. Dying and respawning also works.
Circumstantial, yes. Worthy of dismissal? Definitely not.
