    I have to say...
    I’m using GG to farm 1 &2 giant volunteer upgrades, i need tons of them & do not need GG shards, i’m overflowing with them, so i’m disappointed to get shards....& guess what....
    I seem to get shards all the time... often 3 at a time!
    My opinion is it’s just a matter of perception... watched pot never boils & all that

    That feels like genuine bad luck. I sometimes get three shards after one battle.

    Yeah, Ras. There may well be a certain ratio that balances out in time. Though, this average ratio need not balance out for everybody: more over the whole community. I can see that some find gathering shards by LW easy, where some are doomed to bang their heads...but the average ratio will even out among the community. Bit like having 4S battles available, perhaps: many had very few, whereas I had too many. But overall, the ratios fitted, as devs intended.

    Keeping updated: 33 Shards/ 100 LW

    I am in the same boat as BlueRuby. I try to collect 3-5 LW per day and if I get a shard, it makes my day. I estimate my probabily between 20-30%. So, I completely don’t understand how people get 3-4 shard per day. Yes, quite rare I can find 3 shard in LW, but it has been happened 1-2 times.

    I’ll stop counting now: 33 shards, 100 Loot Wagons: 33%.

    Guess that’s about right. Just felt grumpy that I was having a dry spell where I formerly believed it should have been nearer a 50% shard drop rate.

    Now I have a better idea, s’cool

    Perception and expectation definitely influences our viewpoint. I am 5s so don’t want shards anymore.

    Hoping for Mythical Gear or Ceremony of the Sun upgrades I can sell for 1660 gold. Now it seems I just find a lot of shards instead.

    I turned 5s on Feb 28. Today is March 7 and I have found 19 shards. About 2.5 per day.

    I am sure ratio hasn’t changed, we just remember our disappointments more than our successes.

    Im very new to the game so maybe I should keep my mouth closed :D
    only played like 3 weeks but intensive.
    I guess you already upgraded so only need shards now.
    im actually glad when get upgrades to even if shards great. then I dont need to wait for them or buy them in shop. I get more upgraded now but when get shards often more then one at the time.

    Currently also wondering about CV’s having an effect, as Owain suggested.

    I was using my ‘C’ team to collect them, to get all to 3*, Almost never got CV, and received 64 shards/ 200 loot wagons = still a solid 30%.

    Recently, been using my ‘A’ team to collect, almost ready to move them from 3* - 4*, and receive CV every time. Now on 12 shards / 20 loot wagons. A much smaller sample, but am noticing the difference. Will keep counting, and keep tally updated every 10 loot wagons...

    LW tally (few CV’s): 64 shards / 200 Loot Wagons

    LW tally (all CV’s): 34shards / 60 Loot Wagons...
