I don't want patience!  WG is usually so good at getting my money.  Nothing tempting me yet this year.  Alaska black was cool, but no way I can justify that when i already have the original.

 

Cmon WG im ripe for the picking!

Read the news articles in the game launcher or in game under the news section.  An article on it was published today.

Yep I see it now, the title was misleading.  there is normally like a GIANT santa announcement.  It was hidden in another article.  But ya - let the giant money sink begin.  I literally still have some of the original Camos from the first year.  WG staff can thank me for their christmas bonuses.  I'm good at making bad decisions :(

We all are, Blight. Don't beat yourself up over it. WG has by the balls with their pretty ships with wonderous discounts.

I am sure that there will be a dedicated article to their purchase in the coming days.  Patience :).

Really it's the rare ships by diminishing returns thing.  The more ships you have the more valuable the boxes become.  That's the trap of traps.  Whoever thought up that trap at WG marketting deserves a promotion.

The clamor for the Santa boxes is exceeded only by the griefing after they are released.

Yeah.  People who buy the boxes, and think that anything in a box that *isn't* a ship or doubloons is 'trash'...should never buy Santa boxes.  Just makes them mad.

Ehh, not really unless you are seeing something I'm not (which is possible).

 

Each of them lists "1 from 86" but the state Big Boxes have better odds. ;-)

Yeah, I guess it's not broken down, but I assumed the ships are not worse than 1 in 86 odds.  Probably better, but not worse than.

Not odds, just advertising.

They don't advertise the odds because there is no law to make them. They could rig it anyway they see fit, there is nothing to stop them.

The shiny object brigade....:Smile_trollface:

It's the reason game companies put out such crap these days, they've discovered that all they need to do is put out shiny objects, and the suckers will come running.

The game doesn't have even be good, just has to run and not crash all the time.:Smile_facepalm:

What else can one get out of any game other than the next digital thing?

I mean short of winning prize money in competitive gaming, there literally isn't anything else to obtain in a game other than "shiny". :Smile_amazed:

So i found in previous years, as a guess, it seemed to be about 15-20% out of big boxes.  However i got some event boxes for a few of the recent events and got nothing and felt like they really lowered the odds and now I am not very likely to buy an event box in the future.  If the santa box odds are the same as previous years, I think they hit the right spot between profit and keeping us coming for more.  If the odds are any lower than previous years I would be very disappointed and likely not purchase again.  I did feel like they dropped the odds for "event" boxes having ships recently.

 

Keep in mind, if you do roll a ship, the odds of it being a lower tier are much higher.  Hence the genius trap to get us to buy more boxes.  The more ships you have the higher odds for higher tier ships or "rare" ships.

They didn't, they just said a chance to get one of 86 ships. There's 86 potential premium ship drops, but they say nothing on A) what the odds are of any ship dropping vs. the other drop options or B) whether the odds of getting each of the 86 potential ship drops is equal or weighted toward (presumably) the lower-tier, lower-value ships.
