Most likely many more may have noticed this.

I have run over 60+ different elite STF-s for the last few days.
Every single one has rewarder ONE BNP.
I dont even get XII purple (rather some blue XI) and barely +15 extra marks.


It was supposed to be random bonus to BNP-s but since the last patch it seems to be broken - 60+ runs should yield at least a few purple or increased BNP rewards.

While at the same time a friend seems to get constantly 6/11 BNP and purples and gets rarely 1 and no purple.

ok.. another few days.. still nothing.

Random = random not 0.

If the damn RNG results 0 out of 100 its broken.

random woudl bmean that you get 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 or 10 extea not 0 or 11 (that seems to work only with soem people).

also 60 rep marks is for finishign elite - so as extra ether bnp or "level specific gear - which is XII" should drop - but nether do.

The random reward is either 0 extra Neural Processors, 5 or 10 (in addition to your guaranteed one) - since people still seem to be getting them, I guess you've just been unlucky

The last few days I have been getting very rare MK XII gear in elite missions more often then usual. I had a teammate get a MK XII very rare Sword in a ground mission last night. Sometimes I go long stretches getting no very rare gear and then have some short stretches getting lots of very rare gear.

Just because you're getting a statistically unlikely result, doesn't mean the system is broken. Does it suck that you're not getting as much shiny **** as you would like? Yes. Is not getting your shiny **** by itself an indication that the RNG is broken? Not in the least.

I've gotten around 5 STFs in the past week that gave 11 BNPs each (including one today). Several 115 Omega Mark and a couple in the 80-95 Omega Mark range. Also got a Mk XII [Acc]x3 Disruptor Turret this week too.

It feels very weird when I get a 1 BNP, 75 Mark, and a Mk XI blue vendor junk shield. Getting that for 60 runs must be infuriating, but unless there is a hidden LUK status somewhere in the code, it's not the game hating you, just a random convergence of sucky roll numbers.

Maybe the devs silently introduced damage based rewards like in SB24 etc to punish afk players. Personally i's welcome that change greatly.

# 9 Nothing wrong with drops.

The STF drops were changed with season 7 and gave people qqing about not getting Maco/Omega Gear a set Price. The drop rates are fine complaining you don't hit the Bonus/Very rare gear every 3 time you STF is why you have to grind for instead of it being a free Earned reward. That Not so good XII Gear that drops used to be your uber STF Gear. I just wish they would put it back in as Ultra Rare free drops (Lobi) (Max 2 or 3 per week for player base.

P. S. Lobi 1 or 2 Unreplicatable Meterials could be a 1 in 1000 reward for Story Episodes (think random Gear Box reward.

Make money but toss a carrot out once and a while.

I'm not so sure that it's damage based tbh. At least, my tac toon tala often does the most damage and rarely, if ever gets more than 1 proc. In fact, my sci toon arbri has had at least 6 in almost every run she's been in so far. I think it may be to do with team healing rather than damage.
Then again, there have been oddities. Like Arbri getting 6 procs in a room full of well built tacs, each of whom got 11 procs...
