How to maintain a map pool.

Well, I was growing my map pool steadily, with 66-73 maps populated (5 - 15+ of each) and since the last patch that "increased" the map drops, my map pool has been dropping steadily. Currently have 0 - 70-73 maps, and the 10-15+ I had on the rest is down to 4-8.


The short of it is: RNG is RNG, I hope it resets itself back in my favor soonish. Currently I feel privileged if I get one map to drop per map. (over last 20 maps, I have received the following 0 maps - 12 times, 1 map - 6 times, 2 maps 2 times.

This is all running the same mods I was getting 0-4 maps per map earlier. with only 25% of the maps dropping zero maps.

I am wondering if there has been a change that is affecting map drops based on party size. Most of the people I have seen that are now running low on maps are those who solo them as I do.

The game does not adapt to you, you adapt to it.

RNG happens, but if you add a little weight to one side of the coin you can maximize your chances of landing on one side or the other. This "guide" was never meant to overcome RNG, for that would be impossible, but only to maximize map output.

As far as I know solo players have the same chance to find maps as an entire party.(unless this was stealth changed)

You have the same chance solo as in a group only thing group effects is the items/currency. Only thing that effects maps themselves is the quantity on the map

i do all maps but blood magic and 0 regen.


Ah but this is wrong. Some maps with mazes actually make the map worse in comparison to what you could have run on it. Or rather, should I say, they're not as effective as something else.

Are you absolutely sure about that? As far as I know it doesn't add anything, it just replaces some monsters with monsters of type x. My experience so far seems to confirm it.
