      Thanks, whatever you did seems to be working. Already got a drop in the first game. Will let you know after a few more games.

      I don't see any point in Valve implementing a complicated algorithm for item drops at this stage. I assume it's a very simple one, like a fixed chance for every player to get an item. For instance, supposing every player has a 33% chance to get an item at the end of a game translates to:

      0 drops per game - 1.7%
      1 drop per game - 8.6%
      2 drops per game - 19.5%
      3 drops - 26%
      4 drops - 22.7%
      5 drops - 13.7%
      6 drops - 5.7%
      7+ drops - 2.2%

      which pretty much seems to fit with my experience so far.

          Also, my math is good. Ignorance is bad.
          I didn't know you were including chest drops. I also didn't realize op wasn't getting chests. Hence my skewed view of the drop rate. Nothing in the post explicitly said that chests were also not dropping - I assumed one way in what was ambiguous where others assumed the other. 5/10% for non-chests sounds right to me and that's what I thought the argument was; I don't really care about chests at all and I thought OP was reporting only getting chests and no non-chest items.

          It's easy to think someone's math is silly when you're not considering they used a lot more possible reults :x
          The formula you used feels incorrect to me, just instinctually, but I can't think of a reason why it would be wrong and the data seems pretty compliant.
