I just like to point out you could of sold the keys on the exchange then got the ship off the exchange, and weapons for it.
would of net you at least 100mill
i spend couple days ago about 430 mil. and didnt get ship ... so i buy him from exchange
and couple month ago i open 5 cardassian lock boxes and get 4 galor ship ... a half yr before that i open too many box to get galor and nothin ...
chance is always there .... "un-PWE" will normalize chance for box sometime
There are a lot of claims around and a lot of evidence that supports the theory that the random number generator is not working "truly randomly".
One of the devs commented on the need to go through the number generator's code and ensure it is outputting properly. Chains of identical items shouldn't be common and yet they are.
Hell I saw a guy open 3 wells class ships 3 boxes in a row. If the number generator is operating properly what are the odds of that?
I remember back in the old days, random number have to be "seed" which can be anything, the computer will "randomly" generate a number from that (from a range)
I'm sure coding has gotten a lot more sophisticated and can come pretty close in generating number.
since it is "random" then it is a chance a person could get 3 ships in a row, the only way to "break that pattern" is to keep track and only generate a win after x tries (which then it is not as random isn't it?)
Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional.
I was not planning on adding to this post, but in the interests of fair reporting, I blew another pile of dilithium to get 50 keys to buy the Tachyokinetic Converter.
First box I opened, yup, the Heavy Escort Carrier.
What are the chances of that?
"He tasks me. He tasks me, and I shall have him. For every doff box bought, I'll chase him round the Moons of Nibia and round the Antares Maelstrom and round Perdition's flames. For every single doff box opened, I stab at thee from hell's heart. For every single doff contributed, I spit my last breath at thee..." Khan Playing STO
The thing that gets me is...you constantly see "<enter name here> has won a Jem'Hadar escort carrier" constantly on the system messages, with the odds of actually getting one how the heck are so many people getting them...or are they? BUAH HA HA HA HA HA.
100 Lockboxes, (cost 990,000 Dilithium for the keys, exchanging at 88:1) wanted a Jem?Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier. Didnt get it.
76 dilithium claims,
and some other stuff that went straight in the recycler.
Thanks for posting your results.
I don't always open boxes, but when I do:
I like to have an idea of the actual outcomes.
Just curious tho, and this is not the first time I've seen it commented on. Why do people dislike the "Dilithium Claims"?
personally I love them, log on do 5 mins of work and make 3/4 of my daily refine limit.
