  • Is holiday crate rigged ???

    Rolled about 10 holiday crate rolls with 5 diferrent toons got same lousy common lt on all of them.
    About 3 hours ago all got same common lt, about an hour ago all got same common lt (diferrent than the first).
    Statisticly speaking this is evidently rigged...
    Have lots of mixed emotions about this and none of them is positive. Shame on you for hitting new lows by damaging the holiday spirit, imop you will only loose revenue keeping this direction, was ready to send many more crate gifts but not anymore after this experience.
    As a holiday crate it should not even have super common lts you can get from challenges.

    Sounds like the same ol free crate roll we know and hate. It's not the crate roll itself it's the absolutely abysmal odds behind them.

      I am sorry to hear that you did not get what you want from those crates. But as a developer I can promise that holiday crate has the exact same drop pattern as all other regular crates like Challenger/Mercenary. 10 crates is not a big enough sample to make a statistical conclusion about the crate drop rate. But I do understand your frustration here.

      The price for a crate and the drop rate isn't something that we can change at will. Consistency of the economy is something we need to maintain. We have already dropped the price for holiday crate from 30 to 26, that's a price UE has never witnessed. It's not a huge discount but we are definitely trying to give players a fair price on the stuffs we sell.

          Crates are evil.
          Scratchers the tool of the devil.
          But I got a duke with two uncommons and about three to four commons. From my gift rolls today.

          I would recommend not really having any hopes from crate rolls and if u really want epics try the events. The normal non event epics which are easily obtained and at lessor frustration lvl

            Tio and Charmaine for everyone!

            Seriously though, no different from my usual crate luck so I am not surprised. I agree with Mist's sentiments on the matter entirely.

            I have seen a few empire buddies get the Rookie Duke skin, so it can pay out, the odds are just about the same as a lightning strike.

            Merry Xmas btw!

                Keep going guys. I am spending about a VIP each on 3 toons....and have gotten a couple of epics (over about 30 rolls so far).

                Just did 14 spins.....all commons....now that is crappy luck.

                  Crates are the most straightforward thing in this game. In order to hit the percentages listed, there must be times you don't get anything. I used to think it was random until someone showed me how it works.

                  If you take the time to look up how RNG works, you'll see that there is nothing truly random about it. But you don't need to be an expert to know enough not to roll only 10 crates and then whine for a freebie.

                        So very close to the published odds, then. On average, for 35 crates you'd expect 1.75 epics, 3.5 rares, 10.5 uncommons and 19.25 commons.

                          My understanding of original post is not that he got commons every time it's that he got the same common everytime.

                          Sure you should get more commons then other rarities, but getting the same common LT every roll seems weird.

                          Just like how the tech lab items you need parts for. There is 1-3 parts you have a bunch of and the other parts you might not have any of.

                          Not arguing with anyone, this is just how I interpreted the post.

                            Tonight did 36 crates. No epics 6 rares, 18 uncommons. Not bad.
