The maximum number of lockboes I seem to ever be able to get and hold at one time is 3.

Has anyone else managed to hold more than 3 at one time?

I am on mission goal: Defeat Buggy Horowitz in Hillcrest. 8 attacks and 7 lockboxes. Opened the first with a diamond.

Haven't got a diamond yet after 5 tries. I've had more than 5 at a time.

Done various missions as energy allowed and attacked and won every rival all morning - 1 Lockbox. Thats it.
Am I doing something wrong. LB came from a mission. Tried attacking and robbing all from the list and ensured they are the same level as myself (33).
All thats happening is Im going to level up pretty quick for no reason.
Although I did get a diamond from the box - which was nice.

Hi all, people whom opened their boxes how have you been going about it (Novice,Expert or Master Kit)
I've managed to get 5 boxes but I'm not on an all out search just doing map and getting them opened 3 so far all on Novice kit still over 6 days to go.
Got 2 diamonds & 1 FBI swat van ( 4 fail lock picks)

Where are you getting the LBs from? Missions or Attacks or Robberies?

I've gotten 8 lockboxes so far. 3 from one opponent in 10 fights somehow, i think ive only fought about 20 times. 2 from robberies and 3 from jobs.

I've opened 3 and have 3 waiting. First open I used gold. Using the Master I have opened 2 from 7 tries. All of my boxes have come from jobs. I've gone through Thug Life 184 and 185, plus 37 hardcore hitman fights and still haven't gotten one from pvp.

I've gotten 7 lockboxes. Opened 2 outta 5 tries, using Med pack, 1 for a small armor thingy, and 1 Diamond.

4 Boxes came from fighting, 2 from jobs, and 1 from a robbery. That Diamond Sig is SOOOO NICE!!!!:D

I've got 9 waiting to be opened...relying on cash but so far have drawn a blank twice out of 4 attempts - the other 2 yielded a stone hammer and a diamond.

It seems pretty obvious that many of us will acquire far more LBs than we can open sticking to the hourly schedule. I can envisage the inevitability that gold usage will be required :(...either that or sacrifice them at the end of the event. At least there will be a gold sale within the week...I predict :cool:

8. So far I have gotten two diamonds out of four boxes. My last two were better luck next time boxes

ETA I am only doing the medium option each time

I've gotten 12 lockboxes, 2 from robberies, 5 from fights, 5 from missions. Roughly 500 stamina used.

Other stats
3/3 fail attempts at novice
2/12 fail attempts at expert

Rewards
1x Jawbreaker 23/17 melee
1x Stone Hammer 10/9
4x Diamonds
2x $25k cash
3x 500 RP

Also interesting is that on one of the unlocks, I got 1x Diamond AND 1x Stone Hammer.

Gd luck all...

I can only suggest that if you have many lockboxes, don't be tight, u will hate yourself when it gets stolen by a rival. Use the expert kit, $12-13k will not bankrupt u.

Yep...I got 2 from one victim earlier :p However, using the expert kit still means that there is the possibility of the LB still not opening...but it's too early to commit gold to guarantee it IMO (if at all)...this is a good time to have built up a good defence to win PvP attacks :)

You shouldn't lose those when you're attacked, at least not that many.

I remember way back in the day when level 50 players were like 5,000 attack/7,000 defense on average. Now they have stats just about equaling mine.

Nah, they're still like that. Level 63 here and I'd say the average is 3500/4500 and there are still plenty with less than 2000/3000, though they all have massive losses, sometimes up to 90%.

Damn how is everyone getting so many diamonds? I got about 8 lockboxes from farming M4s. I used the expert kit and was 2 for 8 in opening them, only getting cash and a police car. My wife opened 3 out of 4 tries and got a diamond each time. I have 241 in gold. Maybe it is trying to entice me to use the master kit?

In my opinion you get a diamond when you only have 1 box on hand but once you are carrying more then 1 on hand you will get a loot/cash/respect
Has anyone got a diamond while having more then 1 box on hand

@BabyTway - Did you (or anyone else) start seeing a lower diamond drop rate after 5? I seem to have, but its only anecdotal with one!

10/17 overall. First 6: 5/6 Diamonds. Last 4: 0 Diamonds.

Note: This is 24hr count w/ Gold. Boo, only 17x... got stuck w/ no boxes late at night to alarm for.

Thanks for the idea to just reinstall CC universal on my iPad. I can't believe I didn't think of that! It took a while for it to work properly though, so that was weird.

Kind of funny that I am getting all my lockboxes during PvP in the HD version where I cannot see them, and using universal to open them.

One successful unlock out of two attempts. I got one diamond.

That would be nice but I'm sure we'll get something equivalent in subsequent events.

O and I'm 6 for 21. 3 diamonds, 125 k, 25k and a stone hammer. no gold spent using the middle option every time.

I've got 25 boxes right now i feel like I'll be in the 100 range when the event ends.

16 unlocked boxes, 6 still locked: 5 diamonds, 2*$25k, 2*$125k, 5 punker jackets, 2 stone hammers

First 4 diamonds came in real quick, no diamonds on the last 6 openings. Hope it's just coincidence. If chances get lower and lower towards the 10th diamond it could be impossible to get the diamond sig without a lot of gold investment.

You hit the nail on the head...I've had 9 diamonds for awhile now (which came pretty fast and easy) and have opened over 30 boxes trying for that 10th diamond. I've gotten everything (500 rp, SWAT van, cheap weapons like stone hammer). Really making me work for that 10th diamond.

So what happened after you got the 10th diamond? Does the whole thing reset? Can you get multiple diamond sigs? Or does the whole lockbox event end after you get 10 diamonds. What happens if you can only have one diamond sig but once you get it, you still have 30 lock boxes to open? Do you just continue getting diamonds but can't use them?

Lockbox Event Guide!
Lockbox Discovery:

Lockboxes can be obtained from any action that requires the use of energy or stamina. All jobs and PvP have a chance to drop a lockbox, although you can not get them from your hood.

The rate in which lockboxes drop is directly related to energy cost of a job (PvE) and a fixed value for stealing in PvP. The higher the energy cost for a job, the better chance at getting a lockbox.

When a lockbox is found, it will fly into a special UI icon which is located at the lower left hand side of the screen. Tapping this icon brings up the events window.

Loot:

4 pieces of loot are tied to the event.
Different levels see different loot for each item:
[1-20] [21-50] [51-80] [81+]
Loot is automatically placed in a players inventory once the amount of diamonds for each are found.
The last item (10 Diamonds) has an item bonus which is +1 Respect from fights. As long as a player has this item in their inventory, it will function properly. It does not have to be equipped by them or their mafia.

Lockpick Kits:

Players have 3 choices as to how they want to open their lock box.
Novice Kit: (Free to use and a low chance to open.)
Expert Kit: (Cash to use, scales with players level, and a medium chance to open.)
Master Kit: (Gold to use, fixed value and a guaranteed chance to open.)
Once a player taps one of the lockpick buttons, 2 things can happen; they can successfully open the lockbox, awarding loot, or fail to open.
If successful -> a lockbox is subtracted from their total.
If they fail -> they do not lose the lockbox.


Lockpick Kit Cooldown:

All attempts at opening a lockbox will trigger a 1 hour cooldown. A player is only allowed to open 1 lockbox per hour. If they wish to open more, they can choose to use the reset timer function. This costs 10 gold. Once reset, they are brought back to the main events window where they can attempt to open another lockbox.

Diamonds:

This is sort of an event currency. Diamonds have a chance to drop anytime a lockbox is successfully opened. Players will need to collect diamonds to obtain the loot seen in the main events window. Once 10 diamonds are collected, the end event item is awarded. At this time, players may still open lockboxes, although diamonds will stop dropping.

This event is currently only for CC Universal. The CCHD lockbox event should start within the next 2 weeks, and will be exclusively for CCHD.

Yup, had about a 5 day head start on everybody, and since I had about 100 gold bars left over I used them on this promo. Seeing what the crates turned into, I maybe shoulda used it on that instead. I did try a crate of 3 deal, and the weapons it offered in Beta were nowhere near the level you guys are getting. I am sure that is why they justified the higher prices.

LOL. Thanks for the warning. Having completed thug life goals, my stats are ok even though I wouldn't say I am unassailable. My Empire Times is about half green half red. We'll see how many lockboxes I have when I wake up tomorrow morning.

I play like I am on welfare and get lockboxes left, right and centre. I am also stacking them left, right and centre. At this rate, it wouldn't make a difference to me even if I lost 24 of 27 lockboxes I currently own. What the hell does Funzio mean by 'fair chance to open' anyway? I take it to mean something like 40% ~ 50%. But it feels like I am getting 15%.

When a lockbox is found, it will fly into a special UI icon which is located at the lower left hand side of the screen. Tapping this icon brings up the events window.

Loot:

4 pieces of loot are tied to the event.
Different levels see different loot for each item:
[1-20] [21-50] [51-80] [81+]
Loot is automatically placed in a players inventory once the amount of diamonds for each are found.
The last item (10 Diamonds) has an item bonus which is +1 Respect from fights. As long as a player has this item in their inventory, it will function properly. It does not have to be equipped by them or their mafia.

Lockpick Kits:

Players have 3 choices as to how they want to open their lock box.
Novice Kit: (Free to use and a low chance to open.)
Expert Kit: (Cash to use, scales with players level, and a medium chance to open.)
Master Kit: (Gold to use, fixed value and a guaranteed chance to open.)
Once a player taps one of the lockpick buttons, 2 things can happen; they can successfully open the lockbox, awarding loot, or fail to open.
If successful -> a lockbox is subtracted from their total.
If they fail -> they do not lose the lockbox.


Lockpick Kit Cooldown:

All attempts at opening a lockbox will trigger a 1 hour cooldown. A player is only allowed to open 1 lockbox per hour. If they wish to open more, they can choose to use the reset timer function. This costs 10 gold. Once reset, they are brought back to the main events window where they can attempt to open another lockbox.

Diamonds:

This is sort of an event currency. Diamonds have a chance to drop anytime a lockbox is successfully opened. Players will need to collect diamonds to obtain the loot seen in the main events window. Once 10 diamonds are collected, the end event item is awarded. At this time, players may still open lockboxes, although diamonds will stop dropping.

This event is currently only for CC Universal. The CCHD lockbox event should start within the next 2 weeks, and will be exclusively for CCHD.


That makes sense. So you'll just get loot, RP or money. Got it.

I currently have 14 waiting to be opened.

I got diamonds on my first 2 tries. Then I got nothing and then got my third diamond on my 4th try. Since then I've been zero for about 10...maybe more.

It looks like the boxes are opening about 37% of the time with the expert kit. If I don't have 10 diamonds by the last day I will use my Tapjoy gold to open as many as I can(have 55 gold right now)Good luck everyone ! 

I have 25 lockboxes currently and am opening them every hour on the nose, or trying to anyway. I'm using the expert kit (medium chance) and it's producing about 3 success for every 8 tries. Of those that were successful, I have about 4 diamonds; or about 1 diamond every 4 tries. I was hoping for better odds. The saving grace here is that they are definitely being acquired faster than they are being opened. I haven't lost one to another player yet... but there's always tomorrow.

In my opinion you get a diamond when you only have 1 box on hand but once you are carrying more then 1 on hand you will get a loot/cash/respect
Has anyone got a diamond while having more then 1 box on hand

Also I just want to say sorry to everyone I've offended on the forum (you know who you are) peace

I have 9 diamonds now sorry not sure how many tries ... But they came when I had more than 1

So far 4 diamonds, 300k in cash, 4 arx something guns, 500 R, and lots of failed attempts all using the cash open option. I've only run into folks that have the diamond knuckles so far...and they were all gold buyers, so may have opened with gold, who knows. Having doubts that non gold buyers will be able to reach that sig... (level 94 if that helps)

I have 0 diamonds so far and not happy about it. Several tries like 15 using cash option and received a van,stone hammer, and $25000 x 2. I want those diamonds, I see several people w/ at least the knuckles but can't even get one diamond,WTF. I still have like 21 left to open, hoping I get at least the golden M4.

After very long drought, got a diamond last night and another just now...

Joeycool

I have 110 lock boxes.

I spent the first few days using the medium option.

In Day one I got 4 diamonds.
Day 2 I got 1 diamond.

Nothing since then... Just some useless weapons, and a bit of cash.

Today I spent all day using the gold option to open boxes. No diamonds. Just some respect and more useless weapons. I'm on a super diamond drought even with the use of gold.

Its a shame funzio didnt go with better weapon prizes from the boxes. The ones you currently get are completely useless.
