Drop rate seems off from my recent experience.(Captain Vorkimus (talk) 13:04, 25 October 2016 (CDT))

I would encourage you to record all of your drop rates when running that mission and compare to what's been reported. Keep in mind the nature of statistics means you can see significant deviation from the average results over a small number of trials. SleepingDragon (talk) 14:54, 25 October 2016 (CDT)
Also, please try to be a LITTLE more specific than "seems off"...: is it better? worse? how many runs? how many items?
pre-Aug23: 685 runs, DropTest distribution 29.8 9.8 9.6 9.6 2.5
post-Aug23: 465 runs, DropTest distribution 27.8 9.4 10.1 10.0 2.4
=> these differences are well within the confidence interval of [8.8..11.58]
Just looking at the past 6 days: 64 runs, DropTest distribution 36.6 8.5 13.5 12.2 2.2
=> this LOOKS different, but it's still well within a large confidence interval of [8.63..20.77] (which includes both 9.6 and 10.0), due to very few samples. --Crunch (talk) 19:44, 30 October 2016 (CDT)
