Buying rare crates...

Has anyone else had the pleasant surprise of mistakenly hit the rare equipment crate reward right next to the 500 tg gold crate ? Almost cried the second time. Who in his right mind would purposely buy green equipment crates ? Why not simply remove it and give us fat-fingered players a break ?

    I always accidentally hit it when they add the extra bonus stuff on the left.. Always .. Well.. Often.. Or "sometimes" lol (have to be very careful of wording)
    Shows how much I play on autopilot & how I don't really pay attention sometimes

    I almost accidentally bought the 5 radios crate for 3K TG when I intended to buy the 7.5 TG Legendary Gear Crate instead..

    I actually got an epic weapon when I accidentally bought the 1500. But the traits sucked so I scrapped it.

    Interesting... I wonder if anyone has pulled a legendary weapon/armor from a guaranteed epic crate. Anyone have this happen?

    @Governator yes, that happens quite often.

    I don't buy epic crates at the moment, but it was my strategy at some point. About 1 in 4 or 1 in 3 (very rough estimate based on impression rather than data collection) would be a legendary item.

    What is your current strategy? Mine is buying Gold Crates with 500 TGs, but my supply storage is full, so I'm looking at buying Epic and Legendary crates instead. I hate wasting 500 TGs when a supply crate opens up and 30K in supplies floats away into oblivion. Plus, I was pulling way too much rare junk equipment in the last few weeks I was already looking at a different TG strategy.

    I can confirm that that happens from time to time.

    @Governator my current strategy is actually using TG to complete training the walkers in my walker pit!

    Before then it was 7,500 TG crates because I only really cared about legendary items as all my survivors already had at least epic gear. But now they all have legendary gear so going for the pit.

    @Japes87 , who knows his stuff, recommends the 500 TG gold crates, so that's probably the best strategy.

    When I first started playing I did the 1500 tg crate a lot and got quite a few epic and a couple of legendary weapons too. Several months ago my luck went south so I went to 3500 tg crates. I don't do bad, maybe 1 in 4 is legendary. I seem to be getting a TON of armour lately, when what I need is weapons.

    I spend daily tg on 500 crates and stack up challenge rewards. When I've got one or two challenges worth of rewards waiting, I cash them all and buy 3500s. Normally...

    ...but recently I've been impatient saving xp to get my guys finally to level 19, so I've been blowing everything on 500s hoping for xp. It was in just such a feverish rush that I accidentally bought my 1500. It cost me about 300 gold and whatever tg I had on hand to get a gear I scrapped for 9000 xp.

    NG like to give players options, usually ones we don't want. Like rare crates and crappy traits, like warrior weapons without gold arc.

    @Governator Oh yeah, the warrior weapon without an arc is junk, idk if its legendary! That is a huge pet peeve of mine. Shooter weapon without the extra grids too.

    I've done it twice. That crate needs to be gone along with rare gear in gold crates. Both should be replaced with class tokens. Nobody in their right mind in a million years would pay 1500 TG for green gear .. nobody.
