This is something I’ve noticed from my own PL rewards and other’s as well.
- For the last 2 monthly PLs I did not score that well in PL since I averaged between 120th and 350th weekly (maybe only a couple top80-100 I believe), but still good enough to be rewarded with 2 pro chests every single week without fail.
While I got a few items, I’d say the vast majority were uber items, not pro items. I believe I got less than 1 pro item on average per week (at one time I went at least 3 straight weeks without a single pro item).
- I did very well this week. I was rewarded 7 pro chests, which gave me 11 pro items. So that’s an average of almost 2 pro items per pro chest. I got 0 uber items.
An alliance member did even better and got 10 pro chests, which gave him 18 pro items. So that’s, again, almost an average of 2 pro items per pro chest. Also, 0 uber items as well.
- Other alliance members who did not place that well in this weekly pro league only got 2 pro chests and they said that most of the items they got were only uber items, not pro. Some of them didn’t even get a pro item (which can happen if you only got 2 pro chests, sure).
This leads me to believe that there are different tiers (at least 2) of pro chests:
Higher tier - lots of pro items, awarded to those who score well in the pro league (think something like top50 in the old system, or 4-7-10 pro chests in the current system)
Lower tier - similar ratio of uber and pro items, awarded to those who do not score that well (like anyone worse than top100 in the old system, or 1-2 chests in the current system)
Before, I was under the impression that the only difference between PL rewards was the quantity of pro chests, not the quality.
So I’d like some clarification on this from Flare (maybe @GalaMorgane, @FTB, @Archimedes, etc) if this is true and there are indeed better and worse pro chests according to your score in the PL, or if this is just pure coincidence.
