Anyone that spent ages digging in the snowballs for holiday item drops well this is for you.

Since the patch its been noticed by my fleet and me that the drops are now very rare compared to before the patch. Digging non stop for 10 mins only showed up 1 drop, compared to about 3-5 i would think was an average for 10 mins before or maybe more per 10 mins.

This wasnt told in the patch notes.

Devs can you put it back the way it was please? Some people might not want to get the drops from the snowman event or doff missions.

Yeah, its much harder getting Winter Items.

In all honesty, I have to wonder if I can gather enough Sleigh Bells to complete the Winter Event Project for my Fleets. Big fleets shouldn't have a problem, but small fleets have quiet the daunting task.

Be nice if the Fast and Flurrious Race, you could get Winter Items from them.

That idea has a good deal of merit. I hope this suggestion gets picked up.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.

I checked in with the team and they let me know nothing was changed for searching through the piles.

Cheers,

Well it has, if not intentionally changed then something that was done in the files has altered the drop rate. So if possible have a look into the drop rates and see why there alot lower since patch.

Nor I. The first week, it wasn't odd to go 2k snowballs without finding anything (but sometimes get several drops within a dozen lootings).

Today, after the patch, I did some digging (while waiting for a pvp race to start) and got several drops.

Random is random...I've gotten two drops in a row and I've dug through thousands of snowballs to get nothing.

Humans are terrible at picking up on and deciphering random chance.

I'm inclined to trust the devs unless someone has hard numbers.
