Many players and guilds experienced a statistically unlikely lack of epic vault key drops during the last vault event. Because vault keys are so rare, it’s difficult for players to see if something is actually wrong. Can someone look at the logs from the last vault event and report either:
-The number of vault keys that dropped, and the number of epic keys that dropped, or
-The observed ratio of epic keys to vault keys during the vault event
It was previously stated that the code looks fine, but that doesn’t mean very much. One popular theory is that the epic vault key droprate isn’t increased on vault weekends, making epic keys a significantly smaller proportion of total keys than was intended. There could be many other explanations, but if things are working correctly, a quick look at the data would put our minds at ease.
Droprates are absolutely sacred in a game like this, especially when the rates are very low. If players don’t trust the promised odds, they won’t want to spend money or engage with your content. People are going to spend hundreds of hours farming and collecting data this weekend; it would be greatly appreciated if someone could check the logs in advance.
Thanks for considering this request! I know that your development schedule is very hectic, especially in the current year, and that it’s frustrating to explain things to people who don’t understand Statistics. It would be great to have some kind of statement before people start running hypothesis tests and building confidence intervals.
