If you are still trying to get him i can help you... i need the ring too and can farm together if you want.

I got sir francis on my first try on trying to farm the hammer guy. Only one person can get the tresure at a time, meaning that whoever doesn't get it gets a blank. Also, the person who gets it is chosen at random, so it doesn't matter who kills him. Also, its better to only play with 1 other person, as a person on a 3 person team has a less likely chance to get the treasure.

Everybody can get the treasure at the same time, but it doesn't happen very often.

The following is COMPLETE conjecture...it is NOT a proven tactic...but this is what has happened to me with MOST of the other skellie skins that I have unlocked:

When I farmed, I farmed with 1 or 2 players who alreadly had the skin that I was trying to farm.  I got what I needed on the last treasure drop for Maro Polo (Eddy's damn pocket watch) on the Airport within about 3 games of playing with those guys.  What happend when I was farming with folks that didn't have the skin?  Endless blanks and worthless gold mask dung.

The same thing happend with Skelzor on Syria.  Played FOREVER with people who did not have the skin trying to get the last two treasures...they just would not drop!  As soon as I brought in a player (a single player at that) who HAD the skin...I got both treasures in 2 games. 

The exception to this rule was Ghengis Khan.  Picked up final treasure farming with another dude who needed the same one, and we got lucky. 

Now, I had friends that wanted these skins too, and when they farmed with me after I had unlocked the skins they were seeking...BOOM they got their treasures within a few games. 

As for London Underground and Sir Francis Drake...good luck...I've been having trouble with the ring for that one, but I have yet to play a match with someone who has the skin.  I will attempt to do it this weekend to see if the theory holds true. 

Happy Hunting!

It's random. Keep trying. It only took me a couple of games to get Francis. It was the easiest of them all.
