Why isnt Countess dropping keys

Bear with me ... last time I ran countess was midway through last ladder and briefly on the PTR. I am running hell countess, been through dozens (or simply what feels like a REAL LOT) of runs already, and not a single key dropped ... something feels wrong. I have completed Baal quest in Hell, I just dont have Cain and Malus quests, and was obviously rushed and baal glitched, so could this be it? I just need those 2 quests?? Thanks for any help in advance, cheers.

The droprate is something like 8%, you might just be having crappy luck.

yeah LoLN, you'll hit a streak where she'll drop like 2 out of every 3 games and it'll average out

I hope so, did another 8 runs or so since I posted this, still nothing, in addition to lots other today and last night when I started running her first time this season.

Assuming you did 36 runs before and 8 later, which is probably an overestimate, at 8% drop chance, there's still a significant 2.5% chance that you wouldn't get any keys.

Come back when you've done at least 56 runs for sure, thats when the chance of not having got a key falls below 1%...so even then, not implausible, just unlikely :)

Actually keep track sometime - I did it before this last reset and it kinda opened my eyes. They may say "you should get a key every X run" but you can really have some henious dry spells.

I made 45 runs on all 3 key droppers with a tele'n Bone/Sum Nec and if memory recalls I got 1 key off the summoner. I don't have my notes on this anymore but I'm almost positive that was my results :(

Well it's all about sample size too. You'll have to do millions of runs to average out an 8% return. Don't worry just keep at it and the RNG will put it in your favor.
