The imposed algorithm - spider den drops.

I'm in this game more than 5 months and still I wasnt able to obtain ANY banner for Dark and High Elves!

My first main champ and level 60 was Kael - second was Apothecary.

For a moment I was thinking it was just my bad luck and bad rng but...this just cant be real!

I did spider at least 400 times and I'm auto farming it on lvl 15.

STILL:


and



BUT in that place (besides worthless xp beers and trash shards) I had tons of accessories for factions I dont have or never use.

Recently I even stopped selling them to see how much this whole thing is on scripted down lock.

Results so far:

Is this is some kind of algorithm to punish and make f2p life harder? (And yes - I'm a 100% f2p scrub)

or its just "bad luck" and I should farm spider x times more?




PS

I know people which had same problem. I know also that plarium dont care.

I can't even begin to tell you how long it took me to get a crit rate amulet for dark elves. It does seem like some factions gear drop more often than others. Dark Elves seem to be one of the rarest drops.

Hello

Dark elves is absolutely the hardest faction to get jewels for. Just keep grinding RNGEEZUS will eventually show some favor to you. Good Luck

Can confirm, Dark Elves and Sacred Order are the hardest to get for me. The most I got were Undead Hordes and Lizardmen

Saw a suggestion that each day should have boosted faction drop rates. Love this idea! or even certain days only drop certain factions. 

As it is now farming accessories is bad, but more factions coming in the next few months bringing more champs to have to farm more accessories for. Please fix this Spider is hard enough and my autos take like 7-10 mins on stage 16. After that long to get a Banner Lord item just hurts my heart.

Hey Hey


The game is all about RNG, sometimes you get lucky sometimes you don't, the thing about a spider is the share amount of loot, I'll pass this on as a suggestion to request a way somehow to f2p farm more particular factions.


Though ive spent a lot more runs, trying to get banners then 400 

.


Good luck and have fun

On one hand, you notice you don't have something only when you desperately need it... Plus the RNG factor...


On the other hand, the most accessories I have (after half a year of playing this great game) are for the factions with 0 champs - in my case Banner Lords, Orcs, Undeads. So yeah, no it's not RNG.

I think the game has a trolling algo running.

I find it funny still, but I get that people lose patience. 

It's like a giant tease. You need a type of potion for a quest mission, suddenly only the greater version drops when it usually never does. 

You need items for an event, suddenly only brews and shards are dropping...

I feel trolled most of the time.

I REALLY want certain days for certain factions/sets in dungeons.

I know what you mean. I would like to believe that this kind of trolling algorithm behavior is just a pure rng and "bad luck"...but honestly I start to think it is not just a coincidence.
