I bet my life, that the real percentage whatever it is is not even close to what is being put in the wiki. and being as Cryptic won't release those numbers we will never know.
Oh-oh, don't be so quick to throw your life away . We are getting close to 1000 lock boxes as the sample size here, which is quite representative. So for all items at 5% and higher chances the numbers are pretty accurate with a high certainty. With the < 5% values, they could change more, relatively speaking.
To make myself clear on the second point: It's a big difference if the temp timeship is 0.3% or 0.5%, because that makes a difference of more than 100 lock boxes you are expected to open before you find one. However, it is statistically close to impossible, that with a sample size of 2000 or 3000 you would find the chance of a timeship climbing to 1% or more.
I just bought 100 Keys for 9,560 Zen, while the Keys are on sale. I still have 9,000 Zen on my Account and will have earned 1,500 Zen more by the end of the month via playing and my Stipend. I did not buy any of the Zen from Cryptic. Every penny of it has been earned simply by playing.
I can't speak for the person you're asking, but for myself the dollar amount is zero: whatever I win cost me nothing. It was all earned simply by playing a couple of hours a day.
100 keys from just playing? No disrespect but what's your secret? do you play 24/7 and how do you make a living?...curious to know.....
You must have been EXTREMELY LUCKY - to get a Wells in 98 boxes but more than that 800 Lobi? That is WAY out of the normal range of 5.5 per box - that's like you getting 8 per box - you must have a major sized horse shoe you you back side!!
Some are that lucky with regard to the Wells class - I received mine opening a box with key nine of the first ten-pack I brought.
And have to say, I LOVE it - didn't think anything would get me out of my Fleet Nova class, but this did and I don't plan on using anything else for my Sci for the forseeable future.
I received the Time Ship after my 18th key and gave the ship to my Gorn KDF Science officer. She really fits a gap in their shipyard, and I frankly don't like the aesthetics on the Wells class very much. I especially like the appearance of the KDF version of this ship.
