They are known as the now mythical FE replay missions - I am still waiting for the replays, I need some FE end game exclusive items.

I think Lobi could work as Account Bound, as maybe you got a few shy on one character and have some on another that isn't anywhere near enough to get something other than a consumable. I'm kinda in that boat.

so you have to spend cash on the character where you need a KDF skirt for 150 lobis and cannot use the 12, 25 or 4 lobis you have on an alt, where you have opened a few lockboxes 5 months ago..

Totally agree with this

The sole purpose of making us spend more money.

They are no longer about making money for the company through means that are fun for the players. It is now cut throat suck you dry tactics.

Honestly I already knew this was true when I asked the question. It's the same reason most of the stuff purchased with the crystals is bind on acquire.
