40 boxes is more than enough of a chance to get a Wells. Thats around when I got mine, and I was among the first few to get one.
Its best to only open ~50-60 boxes at a time. If you don't get a ship, cut your losses and try again another day. That way at least, you don't blow 200 keys on nothing with Lobis. (Though with the Temporal Lockbox that isn't an issue like it was with the Ferengi or Tholian boxes. The Destoyer is actually worth it)
Id like a Wells. Im saving up the boxes and like someone said just open them at leasure.
I want one because HGWells wrote Time Machine and War of the Worlds here in my home town of Woking.
Ive got a Thunderchild named after the warship that battled the Martians in WOTW.
I want a Wells now to keep it company.
A member of Romulan Intelligence. A fleet with over 400 members growing daily, friendly, relaxed, fun. We are the only fleet with the pure name of Romulan Intelligence. Welcome to the Tal Shiar. Look us up in game.
Wells, even with the Wells at, let's say 50m EC it will still take me ages to get it. But I'm patient and I remember a time when my main character already had Six Million EC. I am going to have so much again.
