How does one category range from 9% to 1% on the 150 "Rare" nugget category, or 10% to 4% in the 800 " Very rare" nugget category when the drop-rates should be the same for all items in the same category, because I don't see a disclaimer anywhere saying items in the same category have different drop-rates? It's also trending towards the "good" items being lower on the drops, but the garbage chests no one wants are also low, which makes me think it's on purpose and not just a wildly skewed statistical spread.

I think this unethical (not to mention probably illegal, thanks to Netherlands and Belgium) practice has been going on for a while, publish your drop-rates for loot-boxesque content so we don't have to cowboy our own data from a limited number of players, as was the rebuttal last time this was raised (although data is from 373,206 spins so far, and that's just in the Free category, so don't bs us please).

I'll be delighted to be proven wrong and for the second half of the year to start with transparency and accountability on one of the most controversial mechanics of the game.

Funny enough, on official facebook page, they "admitted" that Drop rates ain't same for all items :roll:

No s**t

Previous event they were denying it :njub:

Well that's fantastic for the people that use facebook in [Current year, a decade after most people stopped using facebook].

If InnoGames's defence is that the game was always rigged against the players, and to deny that when asked for years, I refer back to my comments on the immorality of the style of gambling we have been subjected to as the only mechanic in which we grow our characters anymore.
It's rare to see a player-base that's been so abused as we have, that still want to play and for the game to succeed like it used to, before the gambling ruined it. I hope InnoGames at least appreciates that next time a community manager says their players are begging for another classic world...
