    I try not to spend gold to get boxes, but I had to risk 15 gold on 2 gold crates and 1 silver. Too bad they both turned out to be level 19 rare gear. :/

    Plus moaning about xp. It was not that long ago that we got double xp on walkers and triple xp on scrapping

    Not sure what most of you are talking about... this event is suppose to be an increase of gold and silver chests then I shouldn't be doing missions and not getting any silver or gold chest offers. An increase in these should mean after a mission the minimum youshould get is 1 or 2 silvers chest offers. I'm not seeing the increase, worst event so far in my opinion

    I enjoy this event. I'm still need to reach 500 deadly missions so this is a good excuse to do all the deadly missions I can for better gear. I did about 20 Deadly Mission so far and only three of them came up with no gold boxes and only one with no silver or gold. I had about four of them come up with 2 gold boxes. The only good gear i pulled, which I don't use, is a level 18 legendary Scout armor so far. I spent the $5 on gold because I know I will get 500 more and increase my weapons collection.

    @eetu -- LMFAO!! Big Lebowski....statistics...the perfect blend!

    and speaking of small sample sizes....
    My 19 non-deadly missions (171 crates) have given me 8.2% Gold and 14.6% Silver crates.
    That's a big improvement over my previous 2.7% gold, but less than the 15.3% silver crates that I have previously tracked. Still two days left, so I'll update after the event. Hoping the gold % keeps up, and the silver jumps significantly after I finish these low reward early guild missions.

    Difference is insubstantial. This is event so it's supposed to be significant...but like we see it isn't.

    If we will get min 5 creates plus golden then more ppl will buy gas or use 15 gold to open more crates. I don't understand why NG not seeing it....

    The best event for me was 5 days "glitch" event. I used around 1000 gold on refill!!
    So that's how events should works. More used gold = more $ for NG

    I like to moan in generell about the downpath of the weekend events...there were some really nice events in the past. Now NG wants to introduce some new events, but they suck in the whole row.

    If they were smart enough, they would mix the new "events" with the old ones :wink:

    ..or make combo event. Refill time 5 min + Exploration gas cost 2. That's what I call EVENT :)
    More $ for NG? Here you go - extra lock 10 gold or full refill 20 gold. BAM! PPL use gooold!!!

    Totally useless for those of us still climbing and up in the lower levels. I'm only lvl 21 and 15 gold is precious and can't be wasted on crates
  • NCDawgFanNCDawgFan Member Posts: 2,070
    Once in awhile it does work out. Unfortunately in this case I got three large supplies which are useless since I have nothing left to build out, and a level 20 armour which should be useful about 2017. Where is my base level 18 legendary rifle??? My kingdom for this elusive weapon!!!!

    Let's not draw conclusions just yet. This is something that will have an affect over time, don't expect instant gratification.

    What? You mean I'm not guaranteed to have everything I want right away, whenever I want it? You're not being fair!!!

    Well, here it is towards the end of day 1. My experience has been similar to Amiga's, again. After playing the entire day, I had a few 3x3 that were similar to what I normally see, nothing really special, and almost all of the rest were EMPTY WITH NO TICKETS AT ALL. Amiga's not just bitching to hear himself. The fact is, if you never tell them this stuff isn't working properly, they will never know, and things never get fixed. They need feedback, and negative feedback is actually more useful to them than buttkissing. Although at this point I firmly believe they aren't fixing certain things on purpose.

    My experience will be different than most...but in the hundred deadly exploration missions I've run, I have collected about 2 million supplies, 2 million XP, 26 radios and I kept 1 piece of gear.

    It hasn't worked out well for me so far. I had one challenge mission with a ton of crates. Unfortunately, it was a lvl 5 challenge mission. The exploration missions I have done so far have been very skimpy with few or no crates. Let's hope it picks up for me as the weekend progresses.

    @imfgunnut you've only ran 100 deadly missions and some how managed to get all that? I've ran AT LEAST 200 deadly missions, been doing it all day and haven't come close to those numbers. Im a constant gold buyer/user and tend to open the majority of my chests. If it's true you're probably the only one in the game who has done that well so congratulations.

    I don't see this as an "event", the only thing that has changed is the cost to open extra chests from 25 to 15. Majority of the missions I get 0 silver or gold offers still or I get 1-3 silver offers with the very rare 1-2 gold + a few silvers. This isn't an event
  • lmfgunnutlmfgunnut Member Posts: 1,636
    @shawnrow the total includes my tent and farm collections as well, but I leveled a legendary Hunter from 8 to 18 on what I've collected today. I started fresh with zero as I just finished leveling a shooter before I went to bed last night, and I'm sitting at 400k XP banked at the moment. I have opened every gold chest I've received, including those I had to pay gold to get to.

    Well...they offer a hunter bundle at the moment :wink:

    I bought it yesterday since my hunter gear was nearly useless...

    I haven't checked the ground truth numbers, but if OneLessTitan's numbers are representative, a 2.7% -> 8.2% gold ticket chance clearly counts as significant in my books.

    Although I do agree with you, in that events where the effect is clearly visible and not inside a black box might be psychologically better - at least there is less commotion on the forums.

    People have learned to like the epic/legendary chance event, but it has been a rocky road and some still don't believe ;)

    I'm getting quite a few more "gold bars" than normal - IDK if this is from normal crates, gold crates, or silver crates. But I'm not complaining.
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    15 gold for extra locks sounds ok but what the point to use it when barely is something to open in my 90% of case...
