When you play a lottery like this, you've got to think about more than just the bottom line.
Again, my issue is not the quality of prizes at the blue level. My issue is that the game showed me a red first and then said "Just Kidding! It's a Blue." The odds of gaining a prize are another subject entirely that I am not considering in this complaint. I would be happier simply if the Reds stayed Reds, even if it means seeing them less often.
You do give me an idea, though.
Hey, Cryptic! How about the Red boxes don't Ordinarily drop blues, BUT if it awards you a pet you already own or a XP boost when you're already at max level (et cetera) THEN and ONLY THEN it will generate a Blue. This way, it's more like a favor than a fake out.
