Level of dropped Chaos Key

In the patch notes 2.4, it states:
  • Lower difficulty Chaos Keys will drop on average.  This does not affect players level 55+.
My level account is 55+, and I experienced this:
- Before the patch, when I got a chaos key from doing survival, it always has the same level. I got apprentice key when doing apprentice level, war mage key from war mage survival level, etc.
- After the patch, I got Rift Lord key after doing apprentice level. Happens twice.

Question, is this intended? Are players with 55+ level will always got Rift Lord key from now on?
And I don't quite understand what "drop on average" means. In my case, I never got lower difficulty of chaos keys.

Thank you in advance for any answers/feedback :)

    Yep, this is intended.  Chaos Keys now drop based on your account level, rather than the difficulty you are playing.

  • I didn't understand what this meant from the patch notes, but now that I do I'm glad that was a change.  Getting lower difficulty key drops I wouldn't use was one of the big reasons I don't play some Endless maps.  And higher levels that still want lower tier keys can always buy them with gibs.
