They are broken the way RNG isnt Really RNG.

Im pretty sure the bags gives commodations with a sort of MMR in their RNG Formula which makes it unfair.

Random is random. I am not sure how you are failing to understand that. Plus, they didn't really indicate what was broken about it. Initially it was stated BM Bags have a 25% chance to drop a BM Commendation, my only thought is this 25% is much lower than intended hence "breaking" it.

I am in 100% Full BM Gear. This is all with the commendation system. I've gone four days with nothing, yet there are other times I'll get 3-5 in a row.

As the poster you quoted stated, it's luck right now. Some people have it, others do not.

This is the answer to your question.

it's broken. You still claim luck when you've been told it's broken.

Wow amazing.

Nice to see they finally looked into the problem. Took them long enough. Why the delay on the fix. This should be a HOTFIX and I am not even BM yet.

7 days x 2 bags a day = 14 bags
2 weekly quests + 14 bags = 16 bags total in a week.

Amount of comms necessicary for full BM gear = 18 (I didn't even count relics)

So even at a 100% comm rate from bags it's impossible in 1 week.
you obviously don't read the patch notes do you.

They just fixed a bug that allowed other to trade BM bags when the reciever had the maxium number of BM bags in their inventory. So you had people who were getting up to 10 bags a day.

I've been literally getting 1 token out of every 2 bags now.

First it was 18 and 1.

Luck (Taken from Dictionary.com):
Good fortune; advantage or success, considered as the result of chance: He had no luck finding work.


I stated, I am in full Battlemaster Gear. Full. With Commendations. Somebody may not be. We open the same amount of bags, however I got my commendations. I am luckier then he is. To top it off, since BW said it is broken, that makes me even MORE luckier as my character beat the system.

What's hard for you to understand about that?

I might start playing the lotto since I'm 7/23 on my BM bags so far.

Get it through your thick skull that RNG is just that! RNG! It's pure luck and some people will get their BM faster than others.

As a side note, you need to get it out of your head that BM gear will suddenly turn you into a PvP god. The difference between Champion gear and BM gear is about 6 more Expertise and around 3-6 Endurance/Primary Stat per piece. BM gear will NOT suddenly turn a bad player into a good player. The only BM piece that is a significant upgrade is the Main Hand weapon.
It's not Random when it favours others and not everyone.

Wow. You still claim RNG when you've been told it's not.
