Stop spending money on loot CHANCES. It has a ZERO% chance guarantee to provide loot and is just as bad as loot crates; that for some reason people continue to dump money into and then become upset when it yields no rewards.
I must be the luckiest guy around, I've done TD like 5 or 6 times, 2200 Hit and 5 Engines But it's just me because everyone else in my guild and friends list is having serious problems with Engines too.
And BTW, Edit to add:
I'm shocked about the amount of money that players are spending on this, we don't have even a real date about I:ROTP release, we don't need the hit yet nor the Sinergy Crystal bonus either but even so people is gifting money to TRION :s
It's only my personal opinion but the most money people spend on this, the less chances than TRION change the system....
You are playing to their "game" guys

Just put Tenebrean Engines in the Upgrade Parts section for 2000 Ethereal Shards.
Gives a backup acquisition if drops are unlucky, and gives us a bit of a shard dump for when our armor slots are filled.

Assuming the data is an accurate representation, loot should drop 25% of the time. It seems weird to me that the engine drop rate would be 5% and not 12.5% (i.e. half of all loot drops), or something close to that. You ultimately want one engine per loot piece (I am assuming they all require one per upgrade - haven't seen all the gear yet) so if the engine drop rate is actually 5%, that would be silly. The gear would be piling up and waiting for engine drops.
Having run the dungeon 6 times, I have gotten 4 engines and about as many other loot pieces (earring, sword, belt, gloves IIRC). That said, did everyone expect to be fully geared in the first 10 days? In my case either I was insanely lucky with engines, or the loot drop rate is closer to half gear and half engines.
Yes, while failing to get something in xxx bosses does not mean the odds have changed on the next boss, but the a priori call that you will get said item in xxx bosses is a statistical value which can be estimated in advance. Therefore, after running xxx bosses and not getting said item, it could reasonably be said to have had zz% chance of happening. If it is happening to a disproportionaltely large contingent of the playerbase, then something weird is going on.
Not entirely P2W yet then. Here's wondering how good gear will even need to be to clear iRotP. That said, I totally agree that engines should be available for the tokens gained in TD. Why aren't they? Makes little sense to me.

Overall, we're getting the same number of engines, if not more, as we did hearts of the frozen, eyes of madness, etc. They're just less guaranteed and some people have been far more lucky than others. It's also frustrating because you need it to get set bonuses.
