Ya fair enough.. I popped 50 mil ec in keys the other day to open some boxes... no ships and 1 or 2 half decent items... a friend opened 5 boxes and pulled 2 ships... what can ya do, in my case certainly not visit any casinos any time soon. lol

Now having said that I do wonder how the system deals with item selection, beyond the simple purple blue green. In my experience if I pull one item I am likely to pull the same item again with in a short amount of time. From talking to people it seems the system selects items a small time frame at a time... I know a few times when I have pulled say a blue doff 2 in a row... in a lot of cases they end up being the same doff.... Same effect seems to happen with lock boxes.... with the Toy missions I know it would be hard to quickly complete multiple missions on alts... still makes me wonder.
