So I’ve recently gotten back into Borderlands GOTY classic and I’ve put in a hefty 400+ hours in the past couple of months.
From Armory Lance Chests, normally, I’d get 15 legendaries on average. 20 on the high end, 10 on the very lowest end. And, I’d get a Pearl every 2-3 hours on average. I’d get about 6-8 legendaries from Craw on average.
However, within the past week or so, I’ve been getting HORRENDOUS drops from Craw and the Armory. I am talking 2-5 legendaries from Armory, all with typically bad parts. And 1-5 legendaries from Craw. And in 50 hours, 4 Undertakers and 1 Mega Canon (outlier for sure). I’ve spoken to one of my viewers who plays classic, and they didn’t specifically notice this when farming, but upon testing the Armory and Craw, they are similarly getting inexcusably bad drop rates.
Now, the other people who I’ve spoken with are all playing remastered, and up until late last night, their drop rates were fine. Upon observation, it appears a silent update dropped about 8 days ago for classic. A similiar quiet update hit Enhanced/Remastered last night. After the update, 2 of my viewers on Remastered were experiencing the same kind of bad loot, at least from the Armory (not much testing done on Craw).
So, I ask, anyone who can look at the games code, could you see if the Awesome Level of the Lance Chests and Craw have been changed? Or are we just dummi thicc and stupid??
EDIT: Checked my local files and nothing has been modified since I downloaded the game. Steam downloaded an update in relation to the games, but I think if it affected normal play it would show up in the local files?? Maybe we’ve just had coincidentally mutual terrible luck at just the right time but that seemed unlikely to me lol
