Fantastic thread name OP! And its so true, not only does this "promotion" involve players in STO's gambling system, therefore making them more likely to buy lockbox keys, it also floods the doff market! Yay Cryptic!!
Meh, they're not worth it for the 10 Lobi even with almost being guaranteed only 4 Lobi from a box. That's given my luck with boxes - like I said, I think I've made a "profit" on one box I've opened since they came out. I get the 200 Lobi for a Tachyokinetic on a toon and I don't open anything more on them...
Looked at the special. Thought, I'd like a couple of those DOffs, ten lobi per box offsets some of the cost, will try 2 - about $5 - just to see what happens.
Jem Bug in box 2. Woooohooooo!!! Off to the casinos while my luck holds.
