how does the skin drops work?


Recommended Posts

Do you mean the forge/gorge betas? Klei revamped their skin drop chances, mostly towards less rare items compared to before according to many people's experiences (including mine).

Outside of those events the skin drops were supposed to be left as before.

Edit: No reason to write in massive font btw. Most people here aren't that blind.

Does anybody know the actual statistics for skin drops? Like rarity chance? How often they drop? I know it's like 4 a week, with the first after 15 minutes. Any other variables that change the drop rate or quality?

Nothing but speculation exists. Actual drop chances are stored on their servers so they'd have to actually tell us.

With that said, my observations showed that the drop chances of a tier up were half of that of the tier below it. So for example you'd have a 50% chance of a common, 25% for classy, 12.5% for spiffy and so on. I've also noticed that after a long absence of playing the game, drop chances were higher then average. Most of the higher rarity items I've gotten from actual drops were after not playing for a long time. A few friends of mine who rarely play the game also seem to get fairly good skins when they do.

And again, I want to remind you that this is just my speculation based on when I kept track of my drops. This is by no means 100% correct info.

Hey, you don't need to post in such big letters. It's kinda unpleasing to the eye if there's no point to get across. Not to mention it's much easier for others to take you seriously if you use the normal font size. Not criticizing you, just a tip for later. And welcome to the forums.

You get up to a certain number of skins by playing the game each week (Up to 4 per week, resetting on Thursday). Nobody knows the rate of the individual rarities. Klei has not released it, and as far as I know, there hasn't been any large-scale efforts to spade it either.

Anyone telling you that they know how the individual rarities are handed out is probably lying to you.

I remember a while back there was a google doc that a group of people used to keep track of their drops in an effort to figure out the drop rates. Not sure what happened to it though. All I remember about it is when I looked at it the results, they were quite similar to mine (but on a much larger scale of course).

And sometimes it's just educated guessing based on actual data collection.

Unfortunately given how swingy statistics can be in small sample sizes, those guesses aren't usually very useful
Although, honestly, it's not like the rarity rate even matters, given that there's nothing we can do to influence it or get more drops.

Nobody really knows for sure because if klei told everyone then people would find a hundred ways to abuse it. Seeing how these items all cost money on the market, I think how the drop system works should remain a secret.

Official drop rates wouldn't hurt. The drops are mostly left to random chance, so there's really no way to abuse it.

klei should be more open about this in my opinion. it doesnt need to be a secret.

I also don't see any way people could abuse it, but if we knew the exact rates there would be much more complaint about it, I'm afraid. First, a lot of  people would demand higher chanced. Second, they would compare their drops with the official drop rates and a lot of people would feel much more disappointed than now because they were under the average.
