    Thats not right ... from what i can see from my own experiance and my friends .. aside from the Lvl items 100% sure ( If u dont get unlucky and bug out ) u get an item around 1ce / 2ce pear level at random .. ( All my frs and me have gotten items atleast once each level and ofc on lvl up ... )
    I used to be a mannered player but then i took a CYKA to the knee ! ValveKnights the new name for Scrub..

            I played those last 5 games last night got nothing...went on my other account first game uncommon. i dont want to go to 50 games or so and still not get any items. 46 games and no drop is not random...because chests and items have different timers and drop rates. chests dont count as items.

            And for torkr...did you buy something in the store before you played or did you play on a friends account on your computer before playing on your real account?

            we need to find the cause of this bug/thing...helps the devs find the section of code they need to fix

            and dont give me this random/luck bs. i've played on a normal acc and i know what the drop rates should be the chances of enegeorge not getting an item at this stage is like .000008

                  It should be a bug, given the infinitesimal chance of it being pure bad luck. If there's a 99.9% chance of it being a bug, why not investigate it? Instead of believing that 0.01%.

                    Posted this in a similar thread but I will do so again, here:

                    Same thing is happening to me. I have 37 games played since item patch (prior to this, my last game was in Jan).

                    Did some quick napkin stats assuming a fixed drop chance for an item.

                    Starting with a 33% drop chance for you to get an item each game, since I see, on average, 3 items per game (That percentage comes from 1/10 + 1/9 + 1/8).
                    After 37 games, there is a 3 x 10 ^ -7 chance that I would not have received AT LEAST one item.

                    Ok, so you don't believe item drop rate is 33%. That's fine, it was just a rough estimate. So let's look at some stricter drop rates.

                    33% --- 3 x 10 ^ -7
                    20% --- 2.6 x 10 ^ -4
                    10% --- 0.02
                    5% ---- 0.15

                    Yes I am oversimplifying the item drop selection algorithm but, as you can see, the likelihood to not receive AT LEAST one item after numerous, numerous games is effectively null.

                      Dota 2 has never been played om my computer before. I wanted to support Valve, so i bought my own invite and recieved some items with this invite. It is 12 items and a currier. The game might think, that i have too many items based on how many games I've played? - So the drop chance for me might be smaller?

                          enegeorge - I'm investigating your problem. I've pulled up your xp gain history and item drop history, current internal account state, etc. Should be able to get this sorted out.

                            I'm glad there has been an admin response. How might others with the same problem be able to have it sorted out? Shall I link my Steam/Dota2 profile?
