Its very different because Gekli's are C-Store items with a monetary value.
Blue boxes give you absolutely zero value for the C-Points you spend.

Most grab bags of this nature always have a guarantee that you will recieve at least something of equal value to what you spent.

Yeah, I never got my stipend, honestly, don't really care, hate this grab bag blue box crap to.. ofcourse the race red to blue doesn't bother me, only because I've never gotten a red from the race, 6 races a day from day one, I've gotten a total of 3 blue, the rest were green, atleast you get reds that turn into blues....... yeah, frustrated!

Yeah, what the hell?

I've had a few red boxes from the event, but all but one have turned into a blue box. What the frick??

Who in their right mind wraps a gift, then puts that in another box and wraps it a second time?

The logic behind it is silly. Just give me a blue box straight out, and don't tease me.

Again, my issue is not the quality of prizes at the blue level. My issue is that the game showed me a red first and then said "Just Kidding! It's a Blue." The odds of gaining a prize are another subject entirely that I am not considering in this complaint. I would be happier simply if the Reds stayed Reds, even if it means seeing them less often.

You do give me an idea, though.

Hey, Cryptic! How about the Red boxes don't Ordinarily drop blues, BUT if it awards you a pet you already own or a XP boost when you're already at max level (et cetera) THEN and ONLY THEN it will generate a Blue. This way, it's more like a favor than a fake out.
