  • Chests giving the same items multiple times in a row

    Hey, I just purchased three keys for the chest "Treasure of the Shaper Divine" and I got the item "Crystalline Sickles" for Leshrac, three times in a row, I'm not sure if this is a bug, or just bad luck, either way, I'd like an explanation, thank you very much.

      You are granted one of the items the chest contains.
      Which item this is, that is random.

      It is possible to get the same item multiple times in a row, even though quite rare to happen 5 times.

        Actually, no. This has been a confirmed bug in the past.

            this seems to be an issue with crates opened in rapid succession. I've had it happen several times, with any rarity of items (I opened 2 legendary Batmeleons in a row for example)

              Is it a bug that I am able to be reimbursed/refunded for?

                random is random...you are an anomaly. Theres like 1 thread / week about this here. That seems about right given the chances of it happening. Noone ever got 3 unusuals in a row so definitely not a bug.

                      There was no confirmation about it being a bug. And it should be fairly easy to randomize the chest outcome. It doesn't matter how fast you open them.

                      You had bad luck.

                        people always say this, but it just dismisses a possible issue as "luck is luck" despite threads like these popping up all the time. It really does seem like an issue with the RNG for chests

                          Lol. why do you believe this to be a bug? Sure, it's chances are small, but very plausible considering someone has gotten 4 unusuals out of 10 unboxings and I've yet to receive one out of my one hundred unboxings.
