slicing - mission discovery drop rates adjusted?

Were the drop rates for mission discovery items recently lowered, perhaps two or three days ago? I have been running three companions pretty much continuously on slicing, two on the two level 6 lockbox missions and one on the rich level 5. Seems like as of a couple days ago, I'm getting far fewer mission discovery returns. I was gathering perhaps 3-4 a day, and over the last two days I have received exactly one of them.

On the other hand, perhaps I've just had a streak of bad luck.

I don't know if it's just bad luck for me as well, but I've also noticed this trend. While leveling up my first character (on a different server), I seemed to be flooded with mission discoveries of all types. It was perhaps the same rate as what you experienced - and more often a greater yield. Recently, I've been getting maybe one per day, two if I'm very lucky, and oftentimes none at all.

Probably just bad luck.

I've gotten about the same as always. And it is streaky, like always.

I've had a ton of mission discoveries through Slicing since the last patch. At one point I had to mail a bunch to an alt so I could free up inventory space for drops.

Pretty sure that's just random luck.

Seem to get more investigation and diplomacy than the others. Drop rate is about same.
If you say plz because it's shorter than please, I will say no because it's shorter than yes.
