It is currently set to tick over to a new day at the same time that the Drop timer resets, 1:40PM Pacific time I believe, though we will likely adjust that in the future.

Oh so its not local... :/

The first thing we are doing is providing a daily item bonus. Each day you play, you will receive a drop simply by logging in. Secondly, we are doubling the amount of timed drops that are given per week to 8, up from the previous 4. Along with the daily item bonus, players can now receive a total of 15 items per week, nearly 4 times the previous amount.

And finally, we have increased the frequency of elegants and other rare items in the drop table. 

Our previous drop rates were as follows:

  • [...]
  • Elegant: 0.50%

Today, the drop rates are:

  • [...]
  • Elegant: 2.3%

Previously you were limited to four skins a week and had a chance of 0.005 to get an Elegant with each drop, so there was a chance of

1 - (1 - 0.005)^  4 = 0,019850499375 =   1,99%

to get at least a single elegant drop each week.

Now you can get up to 15 skins a week, and you have a chance of 0.023 to get an Elegant with each drop, so now there's a chance of

1 - (1 - 0.023)^15 = 0,294627610868 = 29,46%

to get at least a single elegant drop each week.

But on the other hand waveable items can now drop aswell so not every item will be tradeable on Steam or the Trade Inn.

I don't know how I feel about daily drops, but seeing increased chance for high tier rarity is always welcome. And of course AMAZING short. It gave so much information about lore!

So, there's a poster for 1910 Brussels World Fair.

According to Wikipedia " There was a big fire on 14 and 15 August which gutted several pavilions. "

Hmmm...

Because between 1910-1921 is the time when most of characters were took and put in the Constant.

Pretty nice, a ~ 29,5% chance to get at least one elegant per week. 

Will those heirloom rarity skins ever drop from the system? or are they just obtainable by buying from other players?

How long will the skin package for Winona be purchasable?

Я не думаю, что этот цветок принадлежит Венди. Это связано с картиной Чарли.

согласен

Абигейл - племянница Максвелла, и она не имеет ничего общего с Чарли.

That is actually an insane boost in odds, considering it was only a ~ 2% chance before the update!

so 8 drops each day a week a week is 7 days so ... how?

You can get up to 8 gifts dropped like normal, and in addition to those you can get 7 daily gifts.

This is amazing! I've always liked Winona's voice and dialogue, but she wasn't that interesting to me in play style. Sooooo glad she got some new features, I'm eager to try it out asap.

Plus, new drop rates are great. I have found it a bit disappointing that after literally years and thousands of hours gameplay I only got two heads through gameplay. I think the improvements sound a lot more fair!

And this animation might be the best one yet! What a great day. :D
