Just opened one to check out this new gambling luckbox. Got only a single Lobi Crystal.

The devblog indicates that I should have gotten some item -and- a Lobi Crystal.

>"Lobi Crystals that will be accepted as currency at a vendor that sells new specialty items. (You will always get Lobi Crystals in addition to the other prizes you get with every Ferengi Lock Box you open.)"

Did so as soon as I realised. I expect a response any time in the next 2 weeks if I'm lucky.

Posted here to let people know they may want to wait for it to be fixed before they waste their money.

Only a SINGLE crystal. What a ripoff.

Needs to make it at least 10 per box.

They'll probably adjust the shop prices after it ends, too.

No guarantee it will be adjusted downwards, of course.

Don't count on a fix, they will attribute it to Star Trek lore that the Ferengi are notorious and close your ticket.

So after reading several of the "Lockbox" threads I decided to log into the game and check just how bad things really were.

For 50 Lobi Crystals you can get an item that randomly tells you a Rule of Acquisition.

For 100-200 Lobi Crystals you can get the various outfit pieces, of which there are 4.

For 200 Lobi Crystals you can get ONE PIECE of the Ferengi Ship Set.

To top all that off... each Ferengi Lockbox that you open grants you a grand total of 1 (yes that's ONE) Lobi Crystal.

Do the math...

How many of you have hundreds of dollars (literally) lying around just waiting to be used on this stuff?

Yah, I am hoping the drop rates for box contents are broken.
