    Did anyone get any packs at all from watching the Twitch Grandmasters over the last weekend?

    The few people I've spoken to haven't gotten anything.

    Given that apparently 63,000 packs were meant to be given out during the most recent broadcast run, would have thought the odds were reasonably high enough to get at least a single pack.

    I got nothing, and I had it running the whole day while I was out. You would think that would put some odds in my favor.

    I got 1 pack for "watching" for like 8 hours. Interestingly, I only got it after my internet disconnected and I had to reboot the stream - within a minute of coming back online I got the pack. So now I'm kind of wondering if there's some "reverse pity timer" that funnels the majority of packs to "new" watchers (presumably in hopes of keeping them around for a second pack)...

    I received 2 packs with roughly 20 hours of "watching" (although I did see quite a few matches).  While the matches continued, I was taking a look at the number of average viewers, and the chance of receiving a pack was about 6% (best case scenario given several assumptions).  Even though 64,500 (which should have been 1,500 per hour, assuming the schedule stayed as expected and drops were active from start to finish) sounds like a lot, when compared to the 1,161,000 (approx.) potential winners, it's not surprising so few people got anything...  I just leave it up, go about my weekend, and anything I get is just bonus.

    I "watched" all 3 days, not a single pack. In reality I watched all the EU matches and some of the NA ones.

     

    I wouldn't go out of my way to leave it running again. It was worth watching the EU matches just to see the Feno vs Casie drama :D

    I somehow ended up getting 5 packs, only watching EU and NA. The last one was weird and super delayed. It showed up in my game on Monday morning out of nowhere. I think I wasted my luck for the rest of the year. All packs were only 40 dust though.

    Got one on friday, one on Sunday, by watching about 30h over the whole time. If you don't use the pc anyways, it might be even be cheaper to buy a single pack instead of paying for the electricity bill.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if there are 63,000 packs, and 25,000 people watching, then everyone should get 2-3 packs assuming the packs are evenly spread.

    I guess OP just had bad luck. :/

    That's not really how it works since each hour is independent - if there are 25,000 people watching each hour, then each viewer has just a 6% chance to get one of the 1,500 packs each hour. So you really only have a 6% chance to get a pack on a given hour - yes to never get even one is bad luck, but statistically you never really have a "good" chance to get one since there's no "pity timer" to compound the odds.

    I got super lucky and received 4 packs this past weekend. 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. I was "watching" for about 27-30 hours (overall, over 3 days).

    Well "watching" = I muted a tab with Twitch in my browser, because my PC was on at those hours anyways.

     

    This was the most lucky Twitch drop weekend for me so far. Usually in previous ones I received 1 pack on avg, but sometimes I got 0.

     

    I feel a little bad, because I understand, that for one such lucky person, there are 2-3 who received 0 packs. And some of them actually actively watch the e-sports. RNG man...

    Had the streams on basically everytime they were live and I wasn't asleep, got 1 pack. It's something I guess.

    I got 1 SoU pack. Not bad since i was really watching a few matches! Next time it will be granted 2 packs for 6h so there's that.

    Watched pretty much all the EU matches, and some NA and APAC and think I got 4 packs. Seems like I was lucky this time!

    That's correct. 1,5k pack every hour for 25k people. No pity timer and very low chance you get pack.

    I got 3 packs on Friday, 6 on Saturday and 0 on Sunday. I had the stream on pretty much the entire time it was live. It seems I was lucky to get this many packs, but as the spread over the days shows, it is very random.
