I just noticed that shards drop rate seems like decreased after latest update. As I was constantly playing Dungeon-1 Skull-2 mission and out of 5-times at-least 3 times I was getting shards but after this update I played that 5-times in a go and none of them gave me shards.
Is this just coincidental or they really changed it ? Like don't give shard if you are playing same mission again (or repeatedly) ? Can someone else confirm this ?
I've gone through it a bunch and the rates are pretty usual. I did notice though, that as I started using it for leveling my Heroes instead of trying to beat it with troops and 5 Heroes, I was not getting as many shards. I don't know if that's the way it goes but I seem to have better luck if I lose troops or low level Heroes.
Example: getting a Hero through 40/60 levels ~ 30-35 runs>30 shards
getting a Hero though 1/20 levels ~ 9 runs>24 shards
Just my personal experience.
I have been doing some study on shard drop chance for about 10 days and the drop rate averages to a little less than 30% as of now. But I have noticed that the drop chance is actually decreasing overtime. I will have to find out what happened in the new patches next several days.

I would say I only get 15-20%. I get too many bad streaks... For example I'll be getting shards for each 1 out of 3 or 1 out of 4 tries, then suddenly I would get a bad streak and not get any for 10+ tries... but suddenly when my bad streak is over, I get them at a steady rate again.
my rates have always been about 20-25%. U would think it's 3 out of 5 because you unconciously remembered when you obtained shards since you want it to happen and don't really notice when you didn't get any.
