Perceived patterns always indicate underlying structure. Perceived differences always indicate significant variables. Perceived changes always indicate a manipulating agent. Do not believe in so-called 'experts'. They are either deluded, or actively working to hide the Truth. Be vigilant! Never stop working to make the Truth known!
I would say it in a slightly less conspiracy theory way, but I agree. I suspect there is very little RNG in D3s RNG. There is so much tweaking and weighting of certain drops.
Or has everyone just forgotten the "login drop". That legendary you ALWAYS got within 15 minutes of logging in assuming you were actually playing. Now the wannebe "experts" just derp about RNG, but there were multiple threads and multiple comments on it...then one day the :login drop" just went away.
Blizzard mucks with timers and droprates more than most people can possibly imagine. That's why sudden patterns pop up across many different players and just as quickly go away.
That's why I honestly think the "RNG is RNG" crowd is a special kind of stupid...all while trying to appear smart.
I kind of think I get where you're going with this, but I want to make sure: You know that the "login drop" was never real, right?
I get the impression that you already know this and that was kind of your point, but I wanted to make sure
I am multiboxing 3 saders in seasons. I get bored really fast on them so they are about plvl 80. The new legendaries are fun to use but grinding t3 is just not the same as doing t6 or grifts 30+ on non-seasons.
Drops are no different in seasons vs non-seasons. The new buff in drops for bounties and kadala is possibly making people think they are more lucky. We also can run 100 rifts very easily and the new gems make us into dps machines compared to pre-2.1.
I have been multiboxing for about 2 months now. Its very interesting to see rng in action across 3 accounts. Luck is luck with rng. You would think having 3 accounts would make TnT show its ugly face. 3 accounts = 3 times the crap. I'd run 4 but I'd rather have a friend join and just pass them stuff they need.
