# 1 Gamma Quest Mystery Box
03-02-2012, 09:03 PM
Ok i don't know bout if in the right place, or what anyone else thinks, but if your going to add a Mystery box to a quest you might wanna give better chances to get real items instead of opening like 20 of them and they all are "Cardassian Lock Boxes" i think it is pretty stupid IMHO might as well take it back out pretty worthless, my 2 cents Thanks And yes this is my newbie post cause before today i didn't really have anything to post about :p

They're also in the DIL store listed at 200 DIL each. Figure that one out.

Not sure if this is still right but during the winter ' what ever ' someone said the chance of getting a dominion ship from the boxes was 0.65%. I might be wrong on that but ...

I think the Lockboxes are wrapped in the mystery box because there is a tiny chance to get a gold box out if it which has a better reward table when combined with a masterkey.

Since Cryptic never gave us an official percentage of chance to win, there's no official figure as to the odds - just as there's no official figure for the odds on winning a Galor from the lockboxes. Given that locksboxes drop by their hundreds for every mission, I think that 0.65% is waaaaay too high - the odds are more like 1000's (or possibly 10000's) to 1. I base this on the fact that I've now discarded - or sold in the exchange - at least 200 lockboxes without even seeing a single "gold" one. This means that the odds are at least worse than 0.005% - and that's just for getting a gold lockbox! Then you have to figure what the odds of actually getting a Galor out of one of the incredibly rare gold lockboxes is...

I, for one, refuse to participate in any and all such draws unless I have a clear idea of the odds. If Cryptic want my money for this, let me know the odds so I can decide if 650:1, 1000:1, or 1000000:1 are odds that are worth playing at.

Gold boxes are C.R.@.P - I've opened five gold boxes and the rewards were pathetic. I now do not even pick-up boxes on drop. They can rush in space for all its worth and thats not a lot...

They need to reduce the drop rate and increase the loot table percentage and even more so for gold boxes. This is just stupid the way they have it now.

I never opened a green... I opened one gold with a key I bought from the EC exchange and got a cross faction console...not a bad quota i'd say.

I won't go out of my way to get gold boxes and i wont pay C-points to get a key... but If i get the box and have some change left overI get another key from the exchange... they are cheap enough there.
