    Depending on the coding of the game there are two distinct possibilities which determine the spawn rate of the game.

    POSSIBILITY 1 (number of opened dark rifts does not affect spawn rate): you have a fixed certain% chance per hour of getting a rift, which appears as one of the bosses you dont have.
    POSSIBILITY 2 (number of opened dark rifts affects spawn rate: you have a % chance of opening a rift for each boss that is not up.

    Does anyone know if the number of opened dark rifts affecs the spawn rate?

    Neither of those is right. You get a maximum of 12 rifts per week that will spawn randomly. As a player who came back after this mechanic was added, my first week I had zero dark rifts on one account, but afterward 12 each week. I kill all 12 on the same day within a couple of hours and a week later they all slowly start to respawn.

    What i mean is, do i get more rifts on average if i clear rifts as soon as they appear, or do I get the same if i leave some open?

    Let's say you had all 12 rifts available, but you only kill 1. Sometime over the course of a week, that 1 rift will respawn, bringing it back up to 12.

    There are 12 rifts each with a different boss, you will never get a duplicate boss in the same week. So no, see above explanation if that helps.

    Based on my personal experience, having rifts open or having them all cleared makes no difference in how often they spawn.

    I've never seen the same boss spawn the same week. Sometimes I get twelve withing 3-5 days then nothing after that until next maintenace. Sometimes they spawn like 5 or 4 in one shot sometimes I get them completely random. Just not more than 12 per week. I have kept a close eye on it. One thing I have noticed is that ever since two patches ago I have been getting nice drops and a couple of crons in between unlike the first time crons were introduced on rift where I was getting crons only on every rift boss. They seem to have fixed that, at least for me.
