Decoding Explained?

Hey so at this point I've gotten everything from CDs to Hard Drives, and I'm just wondering if there's any pattern?

Is it based on performance?

Is it based on level?

I've had games where I've gotten 2 Hard Drives in addition to a Memory Card and a DVD.

I've also had a game where I got no data whatsoever after coming in 4th place.

So I'm just wondering, is there a pattern with the decoding items or are they completely random?

PS - Add me on Far Cry 3 if any of you guys want to play multiplayer. It's nice playing with people who have mics.

I've played a lot of matches and it seems random to me. I'll come in last and get a couple items, but be MVP on winning team and get nothing.

In co-op I've had better stuff by playing on a higher level and with more players. Multiplayer seems performance based. Bit odd that bob got nothing as MVP.

Who thought it was a good idea to have this in the game? Ten minute decodes are annoying and hardly profitable. A half hour is silly. Eight hours? Are you fucking stupid? Terrible idea. Whoever signed off on this should be shot, then fired.

The 8 hour ones I put them on before I go off so they're done for the next time I come on.

I thought the decoders thing was based on how many challenges you've done that day/week but that was wrong when I got 2 hard drives on my first game that day.

Right. I understand leaving my console running for eight hours while I'm away, that's not the issue. I think it's one of the dumbest things I've seen in a game.
