Well, every day is a school day! I had no idea what a Catahoula is, but a quick search and now I do! Wow, what a handsome dog breed! I am much impressed!

Well screw this.  6 hours today and no yellow.

I was on for only an hour last night and got 4 legos. My GM1 HoR run saw 3... 2 from the Titan chest and then another from a Fury. I've never had 2 pop out of the same chest!

The night before I played 3 hrs and saw none.

 

Yup!

This game seems to have a system where playing less or not at all for a day or two increases how many legos drop next time you have a solid play session. I usually have a play cycle where i do only the daily challenges for a couple days and play no more than just those challenges, usually don't see any legos those days, maybe 1 across both days. Then I have a day where I do all daily challenges, all daily legendary contracts, at least one legendary mission, and half a dozen strongholds, even more if I have time and/or feel like it. On that day i usually see 4-6 legos. Then I go back to bare minimum daily challenge play for a couple days. The cycle repeats, about every 3 days I get some legos.

You should play less Anthem and go and read BF Skinners work on Operant Conditioning and Supersition ... I think you would find it quite illuminating...

@Affelainen I feel like there is a lengthy cooldown / limit on legendary drops. Like I'm getting 3-6 during couple hours and then nothing for 20-30 hours.

@ExxO_OxxE would you consider this operant conditioning, though?  It seems to me Skinner's work was based on a definite result.  Pull the lever, get the treat.  Or, alternate negatively, pull the lever turn off the electric shock.  Same result which influences behaviour.

 

Honestly, the loot situation seems more to me like the definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.  I keep farming HoR expecting yellow.  Perhaps my behaviour is the same, but the result may vary.

 

How do you think Operant Conditioning applies in this case?  Polite curiosity to hear your thoughts, whilst I blatantly hijack this thread.
