Gold chest sequence changed

Hey everyone,

I noticed today that the gold chest sequence has changed. The old 3 chest repeating order of legendary-epic-epic has been replaced by a new 100 chest sequence.

Rotation for legendary/epic drops, as one-letter entries on a single line to make searching for your current drops easier:

LELEEELLLELEEEEEELLEEEELELLEEELELLEEEEELELLELLEEEEEELLELLEELLEEELEEEEEEELEEEEEELEELELEEEEEEEEELEEELL

The bonus chests are still 100% legendary.

The number of items in each drop hasn’t changed. The number of times each drop appears in the sequence is also unchanged.

Conclusions

The longer sequence means more randomness in drops, you can have 9 epics in a row now, or 4 legendaries in 5 chests. Also the legendary drop rate is slightly nerfed from 33.33% to 33%, resulting in a tiiiny reduction in total drops.

Effectively, not a lot has changed when you open a few hundred chests in one go, you’ll get the same averages as always. If you open small quantities, you can now be lucky or unlucky with the amount of legendary drops, as well as being lucky/unlucky with the contents of those drops.

I noticed drops were a little bit different but didn’t think anything of it. This is interesting.

Does the sequence repeated after that? And, just in case - the sequence is 100 chests, not 100 legendaries, I hope?

He said 100 chest sequence so I assume it is that, not legendaries.

The one changed is the chest (or rarity) sequence.
From 1/3 Legendary to 33/100 Legendary

I have the sequence for golds, want me to post it? (Curtesy of @Seven)

Thanks, I already did the sequencing, just had to go to an appointment for a bit before I could post them. They’re up now.

Edit: @FieryxFury actually, could you check if your sequence matches mine? Because I just saw a screenshot of 10 drops that I can’t find in my own sequence. Might they be personalized?? never mind, it was a sequence crossing on the wrapping point. Lucky guy started at 99 on my sequence, 7 legendary drops in 11 chests there :grin:

so pg could’ve given us .67% more, making it 34%, but instead pg took away .33% to make it 33%. :man_facepalming:t2:

we all know it’s just a little loss, but if pg thinks the loss is so little so that people won’t care, why can’t pg just give us that bit? :roll_eyes: it’d also be a very small loss for pg, anyways.

Legendary matches

But epic doesn’t :thinking: started seeing a difference at drop 8 so haven’t looked at the rest yet, I’ll pm you on Line with the sequence and ss I was sent (I didn’t do sequencing myself, someone else did)

Edit: Used ss sent to me to sequence myself - things match up :white_check_mark:

so If I open 1000 chests , I will end up with some loss , 0.33% for 1000 gold chests looks little big loss … :sob::sob::sob::sob:

It’s a 1% loss in legendary drops. They’re not gone completely of course, you still get an epic drop in place, so it’s probably around 0.6% or 0.7% loss in actual drops. Would’ve been nicer if they’d rounded up though. Or just made it a 99 chest sequence.

Same happened to me. Opened 11 to get the bonus chest and 7 of them and the bonus was Legendary drops :partying_face:

Does anyone know if the sequence restarts in a random spot each event or does it continue the same always.

I.E. if I’m at a crappy spot this event in the sequence am I still at the same spot next event?

In the past it has continued over but I can’t say this is always 100% true.

Even if it is the same spot, the sequence is different every event, so it doesn’t matter, really.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am at a loss as to why PG thought this was necessary. I never have 100s of chests to open. The prospect of possibly hitting a long dry stretch of epics will have me NEVER spending real money to purchase chests again.

The indices should continue. However, as we don’t know the absolute deck (as we guessed the pattern, not the real indexed deck), can assume that it’s random (unless we know someone to compare with)

Maybe to eliminate the double-legendaries during Assault thing… somehow? I can see how they might feel that needed addressing, and of course they would do that before fixing lag or crashes or the economy.

I’m just surprised we didn’t get a new longer chest-opening animation or some extra XP potion drops along with it.

What ever has changed I love it I got 800 Sigils in 10 Gold Chests highest I’ve ever received. :heart_eyes:
