In 2.2 we launched our crates feature, that allows players to buy a crate for a chance at a random prize.

Crates are found in your store under the "Special" tab and are 50g each or 3 for 145g.

Here is a screenshot with the current loot:

Please post any questions you have here and I'll update as an FAQ.

I went to buy some crates and the prices are 50 and 145 gold. Is there a way to get them for less?

Figures I was late to the party. At least I didn't pull the trigger on buying extra gold.

Is this intended as a temporary or ongoing feature?

It's a HUGE money maker, it'll be around for a looong time to come.

As far as I am aware this is an ongoing feature. This is something we have in our Facebook titles, and is generally considered a good product.

The pricing thing was a mistake that unfortunately got out without anyone noticing, and I apologize for us setting false expectations.

I don't see crates in the special section at all.

Version 2.0.2
Build 163
Data: 20120208_8b

EDIT:
I guess i didn't download the right patch?
I just did it again and got the lock box event now... not sure what happened but its fine.

About the skull smasher uncommon loot. For me it displayes 16att/13 def, but in fight screens it comes second, meaning it atleast has over 50 att. Anyone else noticed this?

I had the same issue initially. Looks like it was a display error that has been corrected as it now shows the correct values.

If I am not mistaken, it shows the lower score right when you open the crate, but when you look in your inventory/fight screen its the right stats. Unfortunatly I didn't take a screen shot when I got mine.

Sure, but that's on a QA server. It's internal. No one can interact with that account in any way.

How many vengeance pistols does one get per crate?

I saw someone with 200 vengeance pistols. Did they buy 20 crates? 200 crates?

I am not accusing anyone of anything here, I am just curious about how many you get per crate?

id say at least 1-2 per 3crate, sometimes none but 2 riot armors. they bought alot crates, prolly with the cheap price glitch. i wonder if funzio will nerf those players with 300+ vengance and riots, mostly all those new starts mentioned on another thread have this amount of crate items and i cant believe all are bought with 145 per 3 crates...

Those crates are a joke. Might as well lower the price to 45 gold for everybody, then everyone can't complain.

Based on my personal results, one should expect to loot a vengeance pistol 21% of the time (the most common for me is the eviscerating blade at 23.8%). So, to answer your question, I would guess they purchased somewhere around 952 crates, or 317 of the three packs.

O.o that's a lot of real life money.

That is Gree mission statement

Find round eye with money and no brain!

Three things.

First, for some reason I am reminded of that part in one of the hitchiker's guide books where a ship entirely populated by exiled telephone sanitizers crash landed on a planet and they proceeded to stuff their sweatpants full of leaves, as it was decided leaves would be the new currency. I just can't remember which one of the five books in the trilogy that part was in.

Secondly, have you seen that old Ren and Stimpy episode called "Feud for Sale"? You should look it up if you have not seen it. I think it's a Gree training video.

Finally, IBTL.

CCM started out OK. Even had a meet and greet in NY for CC fans. Came bearing gifts. But like all CC Mods, over time, he became clinically insane.
CJ54 replaced/took over for him and was kicking butt in the beginning. Very helpful, informative and rational.
That was then. We all see the nonsensical shell of a human being that he has become.

I liken the job of mod on this board to the press secretary. They don't make any decisions. They don't have any power. But they are asked to explain the explainable.
CCM just stopped answering.
A&F feigned ignorance.
CJ54 is like "Chemical Ali" in the second gulf war. Yelling that the infidels are being thwarted in the battlefield as US tanks roll into Baghdad right behind him in the video footage.
