I think since the dominion episode is now over they may phase the boxes out. Otherwise it would be pointless in releasing them
They may phase them out temporarily while they create more l00t to place in them and then they'll be back. The response of the Community to the Lock Boxes (and I'm talking about key purchases, not vehement forum posts) is just too positive to pass up on.

You're kidding right? They could've given us that option for $15 a month (a.k.a Subscription) but chose not to... you do the math.
