    Same problem, did about 900 ki fragments, no RI drop. Gave up and did a few graphene armor, RI dropped after a few. Something is screwy.

    Streakbreaker doesn't exist you get the armours depending on if somone hasn't got there finger on the button that stops payouts. If they see you progressing to quickly and getting your frags and upgrades for free they activate a damage modifier for npcs on your acount so that you take more damage then others would then expect you to coin repair and the modifier is reset.

    Sent in a  support ticket, the kixeye 'expert' said the drops are fine, check your inventory. 

    Wow I never thought to check my inventory. Guess the experts know what they're talking about.

    Update: so none dropped after well over 30 hits on the Blue RI but ended up with a few free RIs after killing over a hundred.
    seems graphene3 drop the most RIs and the blue shield RI drop the least.

    ah wouldnt it be nice of kixeye to actually realease drop numbers??? hmmm oh nooo! that would ''ahem, ruin the fun aspect of farming'' ......
    who even thinks of these comments/replies?

    give us data let us farm. people who dont care much about drop rates wont use it. the players that do would give kix a thumbs up. for once ....

    if they gave drop rates, we could obviously easily exploit them to our advantage.

    Seriously though they don't give drop rates to avoid being held accountable for said drop rate. This way there's no accountability and they can continue to :insert your choice of word:: about whatever positive " drop  rate changes" they make

    Streakbreaker was always around 30 hits by me and then over again.
    I do remember the first event of spectre where streakbreaker was way faster than now

    how can we exploit them... its random drop chance to max hit of 30... tell me how that is exploitable?

    if you mean that we hit 29 targets and dont get our RI. and then we be like: ''aight bois here it comes!''
    i dont call it exploit. i call it anticipation.

    if we know the drop chance % number then we at least have a visual on how much chance we get for a drop.

    but yeah please tell me your exploit.

    lol sarcasm trough chat is not always 100% clear if no use of '' '' or whatever.

    but yes, indeed. kixeye should step up their game and be a little more transparent. drop rates and % are a nice add on to what we as player can expect from our effort. especially the people who are not online every day. they can set better goals to what they want to achieve.
