GM1 gives at least 1 guaranteed masterwork at the end of a legendary contract.

Only GM2 and GM3 were adjusted and improved loot-wise.

Adding to Cinemilez, per an update a week ago,

Loot rates have been increased to drop more loot

GM1: "More loot"
GM2: "More more loot"
GM3: "More more more"

However only GM2 and GM3 have had an increase in item rarity from epic & legendary enemies.

Just completed a GM3 legendary contract and received 5 masterwork items, but 0 legendaries. Disappointing.

There is definitely room for improvement, and they've recognized it, stating they have goals in mind, but are taking small intermediate steps to see how each change affects the loot tables. Guess they don't understand their own system very well, but they are working on it.

True. But I'm getting NO masterwork or legendary on a gm1 legendary contract. 

 

Furthermore, did 3 strongholds on gm1 and got zero masterworks or legendary. 

 

All with 199%luck ... Give me a break. It's broken. I'm getting way less stuff than before

That's definitely an oddity. Perhaps its isolated to your account for some reason? That's definitely very annoying. But have you tried GM2 and seen whether the loot drops change?

Yeah I did a gm2, and got 2 masterworks, that I already have. Way too much effort for just 2. Before update I'd get 2 to 4 on gm1 consistently.
