I have a much higher drop rate this event. I'm holding onto much more but I feel like that's because I can't open any xD

I have 43 on hand right now, compared to last event where I actually had to spend gold on an energy refill because I stayed under 10 constantly. I get lots from the Clothing Store in the Red Light District.

Drop rate is higher compare to the last event but the crate opening rate is lower compare to the previous event.(Cash option)

Ma Sheng can be very stingy at times.

I was referring to Plux's comment about the mech suit.

I've never been without one when it was needed. Before, I'd hit whatever spot I was looting until one dropped, then stop and save my energy until I needed another one. I did that for the first few days again this time but realised I was getting a box on the first or second attempt every single time and concluded that the drop rate was significantly higher this time, and with so many more boxes around that there was no longer any need to keep energy on hand as I had in the past.

The logic behind it all isn't particularly complex. People can't spend gold to open boxes they don't have. Ensuring boxes are available easily to all players means the option to open/reset can be exercised with far greater frequency and by many more users who in the past would have been unable to spend gold so impulsively.

The Falcone brothers at the boardwalk have given me a 100% drop rate on boxes. Almost all the map bosses drop a box for me close to 100% of the time. I can't get anything open though most of the time.

Good drop rate on chests, I've got 94 on hand. Opening them is a different story...that's why I have so many on hand.

I currently have 137 on hand and on the last event I finished with around 100 on hand.

So yeah, the drop-rate has improved

Drop rate is ok, but opening rate isn't that great :(

Amen on the opening rate.

Dumping 1000 energy on the Clothing Store dropped 2 UWV and 4 chests.

Drop rate is up for me, shards is about the same... Sitting on 15, no gold.

The drop rates for the crates are awesome now, problem is the shards drop rate are horrendous I've wasted thousands of dollars an hour since the event started and I've only gotten 8 so far now I'm spending over 3.5k an hour to open the box its getting pretty expensive and not to mention I am only lv 25 ATM with an hourly income of 4.2k :(

The drop rate for the chests have been much better than previous events (keeping around 13+ on hand on average), and the shard rate has been mediocre. I have 8 shards so far using only the the cash option, but I have used a lot of cash to get there. Only lvl 36, so that 3.6k is still somewhat valuable to me.

All-in-all, I'm happy with the drop rate of the crates. Jobs have yielded several more crates when I need them, and I have also been getting decent results with pvp.

Have 130 or so. Drop rate isnt the issue, its the cash open rate.

Yeah the cash rate option is just garbage right now....I have 2/3 attempts fail if not more.

6/6 chests on hits for the Red Light District clothing store job. Just what I didn't need ;_;

I don't think any cash players are still in the running... :/

It's going to be really difficult to compete with nothing from now on D:
