see whats i was thinking of doing was....

buying 7 reinforcemt packs and selling them for 5 million each, which would get me 35 million EC...then buying 2 tufflis and selling them when they go up in price atleast getting 60 million EC out of them...

the box ships are very low. like 0.7% chance.

bug ships is probably around 1.6% at a guess because of the higher cost.

dont know about the tuffli.

chances are you wont get it, but the thing with chance is you could very well get it first box.

I think I can answer #1. Please, correct my math if it's wrong since it was a long time since I did this in school.

1a) Assuming a ship drop rate of 0.5% and 24 keys
1-10^(24*LOG(1-0.005)) = 0.1133 i.e. about 11% chance

1b) Assuming a ship drop rate of 1% and 24 keys
1-10^(24*LOG(1-0.01)) = 0.2143 i.e. about 21% chance

In either case the odds are against you.

EDIT: Sorry, I misread your question and my calculations were made for a JEM ship drop with 24 keys, not a BOX ship drop since we have no idea how high that is. But the odds are probably a lot better.

EDIT2: Lol, I'm completely out of touch now since the Jems don't come in the boxes but in the reinforcement packs as you correctly write. Just replace 24 with 7 in my calculations above and it should give you the number. This is what S7 grinding does to my mind
