Please don't be shy of openly suspecting that OTM is manipulating drop rates, for fear that you might lose your forum account. People need to speak up. This has happened in other games. In this case, setting low drop rates for the whales, and much higher drop rates for the casual payers. When these casual payers do get their dragons, they would be so excited about it and start screaming in game chat and forum. This will EGG the whales on (pun intended).
The present OTM may not be the one you knew before. But should be fundamentally the same as before when it comes to learning what other games do.
We're going to start here because you're misinformed and just plain wrong. We don't have separate drop rates for spenders versus free players. We will never individually set drop rates for players. We can't speak for other games, but we can speak for this one.
To the main point of this thread:
No, we won't publicly give you the drop rate, but as someone has stated previously, it is and has always been advertised as a Jackpot Prize. The information passed to me is that the drop is similar to (actually you have a better chance at an egg) than the other Jackpot Prizes. Now that being said, it is completely understandable that we are receiving complaints that it takes hitting Jackpot six times in order to have a maxed out prize. Keeping this in mind as players discuss, the team is closely monitoring this discussion and the information coming the game.
Actually I didn’t even consider that OTM would be so foolish as to purposely anger your whales (if that’s what I am), that was a suggestion on the person responding to my noting statistically egg drops are not following a decernable drop rate. I do buy a lot of chests. I enjoy chest, well at least I did before tokens came along. I suggested to OTM, as I am sure others did, that they get some excitement back into the chests. I have always tracked drop rates and have done well predicting what I will get from a certain number of chests. I note when drop rates change as new events occur.
Let me reiterate, egg drops are not listed as being rare or as a special prize. OTM lists eggs right along with mount, pet and fash tokens, so stop this nonsense about it be some jackpot prize. The only prize is the grand prize which is listed as 2m in gold. Every thing else listed should have a normal determinable drop rate, but having opened 3300 chests with no egg, it appears to me that egg drop rate is so low as to be indeterminable by any but an exceptionally big whale. That now, after that fact you want to relabel eggs as anjackpot prize does not in itself make it true. OTM has done a remarkable job of screwing up what could have been a wonderful thing. Stop
