#25 and #26:No. To do so, Blizzard would have to keep a record (a state) of the number of Supplies bags opened since your last badge in the character database since if it were kept client-side, you could hack it and give yourself guaranteed drops. Furthermore, they'd have to also keep a state for any given drop on any given mob on any given quest.Now multiply that by all your quests.And again by all your alts.And again by, what... 10 million players?That's a lot of state to hold at any given time and it's not worth it. If Blizzard really did want to make a certain "collect N drops" quest faster (or slower) to make it seem "more fair", it's much easier to just tweak the drop-rate by a percent or two.
