Plarium doesn't give me valuable gears anymore.

Is it only me? I hit position up to lvl 170, but but the gears are only "common". Used to receive "legendary" and "rare" at much lower levels.

another friendly "improvement" in plarium?

Hello Archon,

We, as mods, don't really know how this whole system works so we can't help you more. As far as I know, the equipment given is random!

Another evidence of Plarium is dragging us unto gambling? 

What I see is a worsening even in the areas where it was relativley fair previously

Each gear has a certain drop rate. You need to hit higher lvl PPs in order to receive some better gear. But remember that your chances won't be near 100% anyway.

I've had the same experience.

Getting at least some rares until level 150 or so.

Than up to level 170 common level 4 gear only.

Working as intended :)

Looks like you do not have an answer, Alyona. 

We have another nasty trick set by plarium and you seem surprised. 

BTW, look right above  - same bad experience reported by another player - Paladin.

No changes were made to drop rates. It's still random, guys.

Hard to believe, Alyona. Maybe they are lying to you about "random"?
Nothing even remotely valuable - and I am talking about scores of high lvl PP. Previously, there were maybe 10-15 % of something good

As I said, no changes were made. Drop rates are the same as they were when we released this feature.

Unfortunately, that statement contradicts what we as players face. 

BTW, what PP lvl are you at?

When there is a certain drop rate, which is lower than one would expect, it may seem that some periods of time are more successful than other ones. I used to play many Korean MMORPGs, and players were speaking about different tips and telling different stories about random things with drop rate or success chance. Like "You need to enhance your weapon in early morning when there are fewer players on server". Or "Do it when Admins are online, chances will be better. I know. I already tested". 

Same we could say about Sparta and Keys/Chests drop rates. But the truth is that some players can just be more lucky in a certain time frame. It doesn't mean there are some changes. It just means that the chances may be lower than you expect. Randomness is about getting a random Item according to Items drop rates.

P.S. I play PPs for testing purposes only. Do you want me to test a certain PP level?

That would be interesting if you tested 160-170 levels. 

As for "lower drop rate". Zero is always Zero, and it is impossible to blame "luck" - only intention.

according to the info I have, drop rates are above zero for all Items on higher level PPs ;)

And how much "above zero"? like 0,0000 ....1? You said you were going to test, did you?

Yes, but I can't test all levels, that would take too much time. So which levels interest you most: 160, 170? Or something in between?
