    I am at 90/150 shards on my dewport guard since 2 days. I got like 12 iteme in a row and no shard. Is this bad luck or a feature?

    Bad luck. Keep going and you will find shards.

    I don't think it matters, I had the impression that the chance for a shard was higher without a CV .... Now I'm quite sure it doesn't influence the outcome.

    Yes. But you will also go through streaks of 15 to 20 shards in 3 days. We just remember the bad stuff more often because we are disappointed.

    And CV has never had an impact that I have noticed. I experiment and record a lot and don’t have any evidence CV is a factor in regards to shards. Only gold.

    why do i feel i get more shards at beginning when i had 1* regs and few unlocked ones? sometimes i have a feeling if you unlocked too many regs with hundreds of open slots to upgrade them. that when your chances on LW is lowered even if you pick up the LW with a regs who is fully upgraded.

    let me know if this theory is valid. but yeah, i clearly remember when i started the game and looted the wagon, i got 2-3 regs shards with RR a lot. he easily reached 3* in a week. Been thinking what if i forcefully leave starting 5 regs, unlock none, advance none, and only focusing on LW :)

    I also had the feeling that you got a lot more upgrades from LW if your short on them with other units (not fully upgraded and none in the bank), but that could also just be a false impression of mine.
    Don't forget in the beginning upgrading goes much faster because you still get the 3 shards from brigandine island.
    As Primer said you get lucky streaks with nearly every LW with a shard or more and then you go for days without seeing any.
    My estimation for shards is about 3-4 if you do the LW 7-8x a day ... A bit under 50%

    Have they nerfed the shards it has been almost three days now and no shards from loot wagon I have probably another 1,000 shards to go on my units and all of a sudden shards seem to be impossible to obtain?. I have noticed they are offering 10 shards for diamonds now I am guessing You need to spend money now to get diamonds to get shards now?. Anyone else noticing the lack of shards

    Think, Waarthog, you’re pinching my shards then ;p
    I average 3-4 LW’s a day and I am currently on 2 shards out of the past 16 loot wagons.
    Thought it was a 1:1 ratio: upgrades: shards.
    It has usually felt around 50%...Currently not so sure...


    Edit: 2 out of 17 LW’s...and counting...
    ...to be fair, the 18th LW had 3 shards...maybe just a bad run...?

    Including the run I mention above (since I’ve been counting), I’ve done 40 LW’s and gathered 11 shards.
    Does feel nerfed...will keep counting...

    I haven’t kept count, but 25% feels about right. Only guessing I would say 25% items, 25% shards and 50% upgrades. No idea what actual percentages are but that just seems to be ballpark.

    Aha...that's interesting. I was always of the impression it was around 50% shards...I may very well have been mistaken.

    44 LW’s, 11 shards...

    SAME!! It's been two days and not one shard out of a loot wagon. They're bullshit, not worth the cost of the downtime anymore.

    The run of no shards can be long, but then so can the run of shards every wagon. I had a run one time of 3 shards, 3 shards, 2 shards.

    I think it balances out in the end.

    I think it's just bad luck ... Got my first 5* a week earlier than expected (I calculate 3-4 shards a day ... I was very lucky with many 2 and 3 drops)
    If it goes by my subjective impression the droprate has increased ... On the other hand I know my next dry spell is just waiting for me around the next corner

    I know the psychology of tending to notice the disappointment over the satisfaction.
    Still, I’ve been around a long time and haven’t noticed dry runs like this before. That’s why I’m counting:

    11 shards / 47 LW...
