No Drops or Terrible Luck?

In the last week I've done maybe 10-12 escalations or scanned down plex's, these have been both DED and the ones which escalate multiple times.

The only loot ive gotten from these is overseers effects, nothing else.

These have all been for Serpentis, has anyone else found no drops, or is this just some seriously bad luck on my part?

Clearly CCP has modified this plex so that any of your characters cannot receive loot from it.

In the last week I've only run one plex... and it gave me 1.5b isk in loot.

Did CCP improve drops, or do they just like me?

p.s. rng is rng.

The serpentis narcotics warehouse is pretty good, the coreli a-type loot table isn't too valuable, but it has 4 overseers with the faction loot table dotted throughout the complex, even have to warp back to the other route to get the cruiser commander after you kill the structure.

The best run I had from it was about 450m, when absolutely everything dropped (bear in mind I probably ran it more than 100 times, therefore saw lots of nothing runs as well). Serp phi seemed to drop more often than me, but can't remember it cracking 400m in a single run.

ie you are just paying your dues to the random number generator.

Probabilities are an illusion and nothing else. It's pure luck.

With that said: Bad luck dude, sorry for ya.

Bad luck is bad luck.
A while ago I got a 550kk faction drop from a combat site, while the next half-dozend combat sites only gave me faction ammo crap (wow, at 550 ISK per pop, that 1000 ammo drop gives me... half a million... even a single ship already paid more in bounties)

Run a couple hundred more and then get back to us about your drop rate. Everybody has dry spells.

On a whole the price of deadspace modules has been going down since Odyssey came out last year, so clearly plenty of people are having no trouble with plex drops.

Had a 2 week dry spell myself after Rubicon 1.1 was released, not a single drop from untold DED 3, 4 or 5 plus escalations - it happens

Hey. I'm a new player and in my first 4/10 Gurista DED plex in the end of escalation found 400kk Isk Adaptive Invul Field. it's huge money for under 1mil SP char :)

Dunno about Serpentis.

In high sec Angels they seem to be ranging just fine from absolute crap, even from Escalations, to 3 fat drops from easy ones, as "normal".

Ive gotten 2 Serpentis mods a few weeks ago (thinknit was from Drone sites before I understood to stop doing them)
Dunno if this was fixed.

I also seem to still be getting BC modules occassionally from Domination wrecks, which I could have sworn I read somewhere was not intended and had iirc been fixed.
