    23 Rolls = No Loot

    Between doing Sha of Anger and LFR on my priest last week and this week I have only received gold bags. So far I'm on a streak of 23 loot rolls straight only receiving gold. I understand that I could just have bad luck, but I'm thinking about petitioning a GM about it. This streak started right when I shifted from entering these raids as Shadow instead of Holy.

    Anyone else have a streak this bad?

    *EDIT* I mainly wanted to see what kind of luck others were having. Trolls took over the thread though due to me not wording the post well enough. Early out at work for Thanksgiving so I'm out!

    Random is random and contacting a GM about it will do nothing. All 23 of those rolls could have been loot, but RNG again is RNG.

    Why would you ticket a GM about RNG?

    I won 3 items off 12 rolls in LFR today, after weeks of just gold, random loot is prone to streaks of luck, good or bad...

    23? Nope you beat me, my streak was 21. LOVE the new loot system, I watch people getting the same item multiple times that they can't trade to me, while I get nothing week after week. Can't even pass on stuff I don't need to give someone else a chance, yeah, this system sure is better.

    5x T14 legs of sha and nothing else in lfr or sha. RNG is a bi0tch.

    No point in bothering a GM with something like this. He'll just tell you that you had bad luck and that there is nothing he can do. If you're lucky he'll also wish you the best of luck.

    Now I'm not sure about the chance of winning something. But lets say for the sake of arguement that it would be 5% per kill. That would mean you'd have about (1-0.05)^23 which turns out to be about 30% chance to not win something for 23 times in a row. Obviously the percentage would decrease if the chance if winning something is higher. But with 30% it's actually not that strange that people like you are out there.

    Sorry to tell you, but basically you're just having bad luck. I hope you'll win something soon!

    I still think there should be a 5-10% drop chance increase for every time you don't win an item (resetting when you do.) That way you're guaranteed to win something eventually and RNG can't theoretically screw you over forever.

    See I'm kinda in the same boat as the OP... gotten tier legs (sha) and pvp boots (sha)... all other rolls including extra's have been gold... now I'm HOPING my bad luck will turn around in HOF and bless me with loot after loot :-)

    I understand RNG is "random" so I could just have bad luck. But I also understand that RNG is based on a lot of variables and however unlikely it is, me changing specs may have triggered something. I doubt it though.

    With the old system, wouldn't you be complaining about jerkoffs ninja'ing that loot you could have used instead? It's great that you still have something to complain about, but come on..
    Just calm down.

    Perfect example of wasting a GM's time.

    I completely agree with this. I've proposed something similar involving the old "+bonus" system from the old LFR loot system but not related to class/spec. The longer you go without winning the higher and higher your bonus and resetting only when you finally win.


    "RNG is RNG. That's what random means!" Isn't an answer to the problem, it's a kneejerk reaction by people who are privileged to not be in his position.

    QFT. You really want to waste a GMs time because RNG is random? Let me guess - next you'll issue another ticket becuase that GM did not fix the problem for you, and start up posts about how Blizz hates its customers....lol

    Seriously though, I don't think I will bother submitting a ticket because I already know the response. Now if I get to 40 or 50 rolls without loot that's a different story.

    I like this idea but people would exploit this increased drop chance by dropping raids farming for one boss drop

    Why is he a troll? What he said is absolutely true, you dont ticket a GM because you dont like the loot RNG. I havent wont anything from the rolls either whoop whoop.
