Could there be something positive in those Union chests?

Was there a Ninja update at some point?

I got back into doing Campaign earlier this week and I noticed that, more often than it used to, you could actually get some decent stuff in a solo or low-man Union chest, when it didn't used to be that way.

Now, yes, there is the occasional non-chest or Silk Thread/Silver Ore/Slug Eye chest. But it does seem that, with enough points, you can get some decent stuff, more likely than it used to be...

Items in the chests are from a person in the particular Union striking the killing blow on a mob. What items can drop are based on the type of mob killed (with NMs having the best drops).

I did some Campaign about a month ago and still had the completely horrendous luck with lotting, but didn't see much difference in item quality really. It could have been changed since, of course. I should probably go and do some Campaigning to keep my medal.

I still think people are hacking the damn lotting system. The same guy lots 850+ consistently after several Campaign Battles, what are the odds?

I understand the mechanics, Paul. The thing is that the person in the Union striking the particular blow all but certainly merits a _chance_ (a probability) that something will land in their Union chest. I think they just upped the chances, especially for low-man situations.

As far as hacking the lot system, would anyone be surprised, especially as important as the lots are to advancement in end-game/high-level situations?

What are the odds? Do the math.
