So, my guild killed Sha of Pride last night in flex with 11 people... and we got 0 pieces of loot. None, not a single piece.
Is this normal, has anyone else had this issue? We all put in tickets, but no GM has replied yet.
Made us sad.
Flex works the same way as raid finder, you get personal loot. I guess you guys just got unlucky
There was a blue comment back when MoP was released and personal loot introduced that it's possible for no one to win loot in LFR ... and possible for everyone to win loot (although the former is more likely). That's RNG.
If we assume the chance of getting loot is 15% (which I seem to remember reading somewhere for LFR) then the odds of nobody getting loot is (1-0.15)^11=0,17=17%
So one in 6 bosses you kill with your group of 11 will not drop loot for anyone.
If you have a 20% chance of loot that is roughly one in 12 bosses who won't drop any loot.
I don't think this matters nearly as much as you think it does.
