Re: Mount drop rate

In my opinion, unless you're opening 350-400 chests there's no point buying any. Last event I opened 200 and the best item that dropped was glowing white fashion boots.

To answer your original question, I am yet to open a mount ;)

Mounts had a higher drop rate in prior events. Every event, the drop rate goes down, not just because they're diluting the pool with more stuff (instruments, more fashion charms, kites, pledges, and now pet tokens), but also because it's a common tactic in making players buying more chests. It's called baiting.

With all those connacht charms, it's really a push. :lol:

Since horse mounts were introduced, we have seen a steady decline of mounts. Although I think there are less plat buyers these days compared to last year so that can be attributed to the lower number of mounts seen. But samhain/yule/ostara mount drop rate seem to be less than horses. It's not a surprise getting 5 horses out of 100 chests the first time. Now you're lucky to even get 1 out of 300.

I can assure you it has not been lowered, as I said we increased the mount drop ratio in each event.

There is some anectdotal evidence the drop rate is not the same for any two players. I can't be sure of a problem because people are pretty bad at "remembering" what they actually opened and actually got. So I'm curious - while you say the team has increased the odds of winning mounts, which may be true, have you used game analytics to actually go back and verify the drop rates?

A statistical analysis of what actually has dropped would be extremely easy and yet provide reasonable evidence that the code was functional and no one was able to cheat - all in one.
