On top of that I'd love to get my Wife a few crates and teach her how I taught myself


By Immediately throwing her into a high Tier battle with no Idea what she's doing lmbo

It's happened two years in a row now, so it's all but certain to take place again this year. 

It's too much of a profit for WG to not sell them, unless some unforseen loot box ban hits suddenly.

For which one could blame the whiners on this forum, and other people like them, who can't tell the difference between a God-damned gambling scam and an actual goodies-box with a tantalizing probability attached.

It's the difference between most probably getting nothing when you pull the handle vs. always getting at least the value of your input back.

SO tired of other people trying to tell me how I can and cannot spend MY MONEY.

I earned it, if I want to throw it away that is my prerogative. 

That being said, there's a sucker born every minute. I might buy a few crates for fun, like I might buy a few lottery tickets. But spending hundreds on a gamble is ill advised.

Last year I spent around $200 cad I'm pretty sure I pulled around $450 worth of stuff. I'm just hoping the $3 middle of the ground creates are still overall the best value vs $5 one.

Yep. If the bills & rent are paid and the larder and wardrobe are full, the rest is your own lookout. This reminds me of the unholy fuss a few vocal parents kicked up when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys first hit. They wanted them banned because their kids were demanding the entire then-available set at some obscene price.

Um... just say no? Have some willpower? Grow a spine? And a brain on top of it? :fish_palm:

Heh. I happen to have 2 large boxes of TMNT toys from my childhood out in the storage building. Many fond memories there.

Hey!

I got this email from a Nigerian prince would wants to give me $5,000,000 if I help him smuggle some money out of his country.  All I have to do is send him $5,000 USD to cover the paperwork and he will sent the dough.

Wanna go halfsies?

The last 2 years there have been sales on Premium Time although last years was inferior to the offer 2 years ago. So far this year, nothing. That tells me everything I need to know about the current leadership making the decisions about what goes and sale or not. It's going to be a hard no or severely nerfed in terms of rewards. I'll place cold hard cash bets on Christmas crates (if we get them) no longer having 6mo - 1 year of premium as a drop plus less of the Tier 7 & 8 premiums ship drops.

It's the LCD effect.  What's working as intended and legally for the larger group is banned entirely because it doesn't work for the few.

I don't play the legal lottery because that truly is throwing money away.  I know some people treat it as an entertainment expense while others treat it like gambling (with extremely bad odds).  I'm fine with all of that.

I dunno... $2500 buys a lot of porn. 

With $2,500,000 you could start your own site!

Most likely will have santa crates again. And yall realize people aren't calling for the removal of "crates" or "lootboxes" there is just a discussion if they are considered gambling or not. I haven't seen much, if any call for their removal. Personally I will partake because as a whole you get great value. I even broke my no  spending on F2P games rule two years in a row.
