>le big clans conspiracy 

 

Well s**t. Guess nobody gave WG the memo to not salt me over the 75 bucks I spent on those Christmas boxes. 

Loot crates are a gamble. You can spend all you want, but nothing is guaranteed. Think of it as a game of roulette or even a slot machine.

The crates are basically lootboxes. You win some you lose some. You should have known what you were signing up for.

Well what do you know.

Container = "loot box" in "DoubleYuGee" terms.

Remember, loot box is a gamble. Its like u spend all ur money  in slot machine casino and the chance to win is nearly below 1%, which it will strip everything u got from it till u get nothing left.  It will turn to serious gambling addict until u get what u wanted.

Right now lootbox (a.k.a container for DoubleYuGee term) is a  disaster in any triple A games right now.

Depends on the customer segment. FIFA had adamant customer support to continue while battlefront 2 and the rest doubled down, for now.

With all crates, it is a good idea to do a bit of research on the forum. If there is no existing thread, start a new one and ask people how they find a particular crate.

It helps others to find the thread when you call it “freedom crates – what a ripoff” rather than “what a ripoff”.

When people said the Xmas crates are good, I bought a fair few, probably 100? Got about a dozen premium ships, mostly T6/T7, most with 10 point captains. There were heaps of camos, special flags, loads of doubloons. I still have a lot of flags and camos from those crates. If I would have bought only the doubloons in the shop, I would have paid more.

I have not bought any freedom crates, but the few I won in missions had many doubles.

You can change the language  (lingo)

It would have been better for the community to release English speaking Alf Stuart's imho or steve Irwin voice overs 

?not sure what a Japanese Alf Stuart would sound like

I don't care what other says

but to me 'real money + randomized = evil scheme'

don't support it in any single way possible.

I do play 'fate G.O.' where gambling like mechanic is the core of game summoning 

welp, For my 5 star Waifu! I'll pay!

Do you visit Crown Casino, exchanged money for some chips, bet a few games/play poker machine, then finally cry and complain at the reception because you did not win a lot but lost almost your chips there?

because this is exactly what you are trying to say here.

I bought 2 lots of the 10 crates. Yes I got a ton of duplicates, but I also got many special flags which are very useful for grinding.

I was lucky enough to get the Sims, Kidd, Atlanta and Cleveland. All of these I already had so I got many millions of credits in compensation. 

Shame that the only pixel bote I actually wanted, Monaghan, was the only one I did not get. Like the saying goes with gambling, you win some you lose some.

If I could not afford and "right off" so to speak the money I put towards these boxes I would not have done so. If I still bought them anyway.......... well i'm stupid and the fault is all mine and no one elses.

I could get really salty and start a thread and rant and rage but I am mature enough to realise that with any game of chance or lootbox, I do not get to choose what I win or what is inside. If you are not able to understand this I would strongly advise not buying anymore. You clearly have not grasped this concept.
