0.5% on the Temporal Science Vessel.

Literally, the odds are nearly equivalent to hitting a Pass/Come bet on double odds in craps in most casinos in Las Vegas.

Well at least the numbers are there now for people to see and digest. Cryptic may bury this thread, but they cant bury the article on STOwiki.

He talks like the german in Die Hard 3, which until now, I always thought was overacting

Also I appreciate the 10 minutes intro.

That being said, mad respect for the investigative journalism.

1:200 to get the top ship makes total sense, since 4 lobis x 200 keys puts you at 800 lobis, the price of the top ship.

Yeah, well if I don't get a chance to live in an Englis-speaking country for a year or so, that accent is not going away easily. I know it's annoying, but when you only speak English for 30 minutes each week, well...

And Jeremy Irons is a British actor, so in fact his accent is fake

Regards,
Rachel

0.5%, seems to be constant with the previous lockboxes. But given all those getting the ship, sure is deceiving.

Still quite the gamble for us and a great profit income for PW.

Heheh, well I am sure your english is better than my german so

Anyway the message I wanted to deliver was good work keep it up


One thing I forgot to say, to know the actual chance of getting a ship you'd have to do a cross section of people.

Like what is the chance for a level 40 F2P, what's the chance for a 2 year gold member, what is the chance for someone who already has lockbox ships etc.
The same ?

I think with the amount of money people invest, 200 dollars for a ship, it's only fair they get to know what they are buying so nice work

I'm pretty sure it's the same. I don't have any reason to believe otherwise. The only difference is between Fed and Klingon characters: Feds get MUDSSVs and MURSVs, while Klings get a MUHR.

Yeah, the fact that the intro takes up a full 1/3 of the show is annoying; I wound up fast forwarding until I heard the first lockbox mention. The odds are what we already knew though - the stats provided aren't anything the community hasn't already uncovered.

This video and the report contained within leaves me quite disgusted. This is what STO has become...
