Anyone else having issues with the generator creating the same ones again and again??? 

I needed 3 for the Magic camo (tier 5) and it gave me 3 of the same one, the bloody one I already had. So that was a waste of 4500 shards...this is very frustrating. Why cant they just give you the one you need. This to me is just another excuse for people to complaining about "rigging". 

Now i doubt it that ill get enough shards to get the 3 decorations i need with the ingame missions...and will basically force me to buy some large boxes in order to complete the collection. 

I would guess ive wasted around 15-20k of shards getting dupilcates.

You won't believe it but I've been trying to get one particular tier V decoration 9 times. Never got it and by accident I got exactly this one through a small box.

 

Trying to finish another one and again 5 times in a row I get decos I already own. They should implement some kind of emergency system that after 3 tries you get the desired one guarantied or and extension where you can MIX the 3 wrong decorations into the one you need. Far less frustration without really making any gamebreaking shortages.

You have answered your own question.

What is less random than the decoration generator?

 

Forum topics, there must be a dozen already about this very subject!

Nope.

 

Needed 10 yesterday, this was the result of my crafting.

I got tons of the same, even on tier 4. It's annoying as all hell certainly when you have 2 options and that decorder thing keeps giving you 6 of the option you don't need in a straight line.

Random can be annoying ...  doesn't mean it isn't random though.

It's easier and cheaper to just finish last year's collections. Next year finish this year's collection.

I bought a 75 box package and got 17 of the 19 tier 5s.

 

The only viable explanation I can come up with is that the decorations don't all have the same probability.

I believe it because I've had the same thing.

 

If there are 2 in a group then the chance of getting the same one 9 times in a row is about 1 in 2000 ... if they have the same probability.

Obviously, if one of them only has a 1 in 10 chance of being picked, then failing 9 times in a row is much more likely.

Crafting after fulfilling full bonus and before the 13th? Dude, you're wasting shards even if you got a new one every time. :P
