I would agree with this statement if not for the fact that inevitably there is a Lobi store in effect. Hence, purchasing the lock box for anything more than the lobi itself is really just a bonus as the products in the Lobi store are themselves in many ways superior to the random drop. For example, the Temporal Destroyer VS the Wells. Cryptic is successfully ensuring that no matter what, if it is a ship that you want then eventually a ship is what you will get.

The rest of stuff can be turned into EC or Zen. Another bonus?! (Depending of your perspective I suppose)
"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." - Rocky Balboa (2006)
