    I watch guildies have 10-30 hr dry spells grinding SE and have others get them in 1-2 mins of grinding or 2-3 per hr sessions rng is rng and yes they grind for 4-6 hr periods at a time some longer , this is not just SE , underwater,hysteria and ackman are the same.

    Pretty sure GM's here gave my account Bad RNG so i get frustrated and leave lol. I mean i killed 3000 ronaros yesterday on a normal server and still didnt get the potion drop. Thats like 3 hours wasted on killing crap. I could had played 6 games in Overwatch.

    Sigh, more people experiencing outlier bad RNG once again thinking their exception must be some new rule.

    What is up with humans and idiotic conspiracies?

    My Ronaros count is at ~42.000 by now since they added the pot pieces. Still nada. Also no Great Marni Drop.
    My Fadus count is beyond 250.000 mobs and STILL NO GREAT MARNI.

    I want to very much believe this is just a matter of bad RNG. But at this point it feels personal.
    Especially the Great Marni stones are supposed to make subpar zones more enjoyable. I could have filled multiple ones with the hours I have invested into just trying to get them to drop. What's the point of having them drop only from one specific mob anyway if all the kills in the zone count towards completion? That's a whole new level of nonsense.

    If the drop rate went down by 1% every time someone posts one of these threads, we would be down to 0 drops by now.

    In the game of chance, there will always be ups and downs.

    (Disclaimer don't have a Ph.D. in Mathematics) The Bell Curve explains a lot of things mathematically. Why players hit 4 distortions in 10 minutes while you only get 2 crystals in 2 weeks? Why some are winning the lottery and including the jackpot multiple times? Why some players have bad streaks in a blackjack table? Why someone one of the infinity potion pots in their first hour or 10 minutes and some still grinding for more than 200+ hours? Why I get busted with AA three times in one night?

    It happens. It's part of what makes it always "true". 99% win you can be part of that 1% of population that lose.

    The most important to note is that the "average" is where your playing percentages are. So let's just say if the casino has 51-53% house edge on all bets. That's "profit". That population is what drives the Casino businesses up. Yes, the loser bracket. Oh guess what this game is. If you don't get what you wanted.... you going to keep playing. Same analogy.

    Yes, I can definately feel the drop rate nerf myself and YES they easily could have made some slight changes/ tweaks unannounced because anyway majority of people still going to say RNG is RNG isn't it and brush it off

    I guess that's a normal feeling. I really felt the day that I lost 3 AA in one night, that cost me around 10 grand, it was all rigged. I was in full tilt.

    The best way to look at things in a game of chance is that "I'm not the only one rolling numbers". Statistically, anything can be branch into a number with a given percentage. Just because it didn't work out doesn't mean you are the given "average". Maybe some random out there getting the best time of his life, all the best loot, etc. I think it gives me peace of mind that everything is working out as intended.

    Until I reach out of a dealer's hand and caught him fake shuffling. I'm still pissed.
