Exclusive Pack - Drop rates

Thu Mar 25, 2021 12:13 am
.
See the attached screen pics.

Summary
40 packs opened
3 drops per pack
120 drops in total
10 Squadmates dropped
8.33% actual drop rate for Squadmates

The issue
The stated drop rate of 28.95% for Squadmates is not being experienced. The actual is much lower than the stated

Comments
This is a (admittedly) a small sample for the purpose of demonstrating the issue. Opening more packs does not change the numbers above significantly.

Stated drop rate screen for Exclusive Packs.

The point here is:
a. The difference between the stated and actual numbers.
b. If there is a substitution (or a decision being made in the background like a game limit reached etc.) which alters the drop rates then this should be stated, in my opinion.

Another example:
Squadmate XP cards stated is 4.38% but actual is 24.17%

Hi Snipey,

  Is it possible that the Exclusive boxes drop lvl 4 SM for people that don't have more than 1500 SM yet?   If so not having lvl 4's drop anymore would skew the drop results.
  I'll have to check with a clanmate that has less than 1500 to see if lvl 4's are shown as available in those boxes.  ( I remember a 1500 limit so hopefully that is correct )
Just so GL doesn't have to ask:

Yes I do remember something like that in the past being discussed but I can't find a link to it (I looked hard).

I suppose my point is - if that is the case - why doesn't it say that on the % drop screen. Even a fuzzy statement that says something like: These drop rates may vary once you reach certain game thresholds.

Attached is another 10 screen pics showing worse numbers than reported above.
