I believe this is my first post, so hooray for that. Guess it finally took something odd to make me get on here.
Daily Dice. Love it or hate it, the free silver/free weekly gold for VIP exists, and as a shard sink, likely will for some time. Most of the changes they have made are good (adding xp to everything, removing base collectibles as a reward) and some bad (no way to get more shards? boo).
However, over the last 2 weeks (possibly more, possibly less) i've noticed a very disturbing trend on the numbers. This is over 5 of our servers on 2 different accounts, so a sample size of 10/day for 14 days (give or take an additional week or two).
Rolls have, it seems to me, been dropped astronomically in values. Our random roller used to work quite well, with a given month handing out both low and high numbers (lots of 15-0's and a few 90+) with a reasonable mix in the middle. In the last few weeks I've had a single high number (83) on over 150+ rolls, including upgrades to gold on 30 of those rolls. the norm appears to hover between the 30-55 mark now, with a decided increase in the low 30's.
I know, in the grand scheme of things, who really cares? Well I do. I think this was one of the more interesting additions, with potential to get lots of smaller things that make this game more fun. Who wouldn't want a free xp pot on a f2p account (hell, for a vip they are handy still in any flavour)? So is it just me rolling poorly, or has anyone else noticed this as well?
