Fair warning. This is quite possibly the hardest collect ten on record. Don't go in to this event thinking anything less than two vaults will get you final collect ten prize.

Sure, it's an "odds" (wink-wink) thing. But careful, manage your expectations on this one. The last collect ten item will have you piling out your hair!!! It's a doosey!!!

I'm at 900 gold so far. 9/10. I know one player that's dropped 2k gold already, and another player at the 3k mark. I'm doing free opens until last day now. Don't wanna have to drop 2k gold if I don't need to.

Geez, it's that bad? I've been slumming it and using cash opens, already at 4/10. Considering there's over 5 days left, I thought I might be able to save some money :/

I wouldn't doubt that there is a system in place that lowers your probobility of getting loot based on how much gold you have used in the past. Before I bought vaults, I did great on the case events. Now I've opened 5 in a row without obtaining even one snow brick.

Guisseppe17
01-16-2014, 10:00 AM

Back in the day, these collect 10 were pretty difficult. From the game data, it was found that the getting an item in the final box was a 2% probability. To give you an idea, if you spent 1/2 vault (750 gold) and opened 50 boxes, that would only give you a 64% (1 - .98^50) of getting that 10th item. Add that to opening the 9th, 8th etc and you can see how the costs add up quickly.

The last 6+ months they have been much, much easier.

Yeah, for some the snow brick find rate, even with golds, is ridiculous to near impossible and for others just only few hundreds golds.

3 devices all 3 last 10 openings SBLNT .. not funny.

On MW on 9/10 for 3 days now .. opening 20-22 a day .. great odds (500g spend) !! Can't be done in a fair way or with a fair amounth of gold. 500/1000g for endprize = ok .. but when so many are spending 2,3 or even more, not even starting spending more.

The gold guys all claim that case events have the highest drop rates on the first hour. One of my guys got lucky and used only 700+ gold to get both big prices. 1 have used up to 2000 gold to get it. But it's proven. The longer it gets into the event, the lower the possibility of getting the snow crap.

Nope. Everyone has the same exact percentage chance if they are on the same step. Nothing else factors into that.

Went to 9/10 bricks and 8/8 of the loot items in first hour with 900 gold. Then spent another 1,300 gold (in the first hours) searching for that last brick. Finally got it about 25 hours into the event after spending another 100 gold. I have yet to here of anyone getting either prize for free yet but have heard a player has spent 4,500 gold and is still searching for brick #10. The OP was right on the mark with this thread.

I ran through the event in 90 minutes at a total cost of roughly 1300 Gold for both the 10/10 and 8/8.

They changed the probability on the 10th item early last year, but maybe they changed it back to 2%. A lot of people see 2% and think, "It'll take fifty opens on average then," but that is not how odds work. The probability doesn't change because you've had an unsuccessful open, or 49 unsuccessful opens, or 150 unsuccessful opens.

Have a look at these odds tables:

The last item drop rate was wrong for a long time on collect 10s, so a lot of people were completing.
Then a forum member found out and emailed support and mods to inform them and it got lowered.

on 9/10 and 4/8 using cash only and opened 20 so far

Sleazy_P_Martini
01-17-2014, 10:17 PM
This was brutal. I ended up spending 1800 gold to finish. A full 900 gold to get the 10/10. I'm in no way complaining. Prizes for both goals are each worthy of being a top prize in any collect ten event, as well as rivaling top 10/25 war prizes. So I do think this was worth it for me. Though that armor mod only tickled my stats.

Results will obviously vary.

10/10 (yesterday) 6/8... open 1 with cash every hours

I dont use gold on case events, last time spend to much didnt make it... this time didnt spend any and completed it with 2 days left! there is no reward for spending all your gold here i think its a waste.. not even fun too..
Is there also a higher chance to get the tenth snowbrick if you use gold? or is there just no chance of getting the "sorry" sign? i guess if i can do it without gold.. its not worth spending my money on and see 10 items pass by that i already got

LtoThege i m with you at what u say in your post..me i stay with 9 snow bricks from second day...and i open from 24 hours i think 18 per day, but they don t give me last brick! I m a very active player...i don t use gold...i win Fume ventilator but the big bonus for 10 bricks i don t win i think:(( last 2days i open from 24hours , 20 attempts per day,but nothing!:(

If you can open at least 16 times a day, you have a good chance of getting collect 10 and collect 8 in 5 days. No gold spent and successful in last several collect 10 events including this one.

Completed with a day to go for about 120G. If I get 3 BLNTs in a row after a few days as it gets harder I open the next with gold.

Much easier than the store stompers event. Lots of free players in the syn got everything or at least all the bricks, too

Fair warning. This is quite possibly the hardest collect ten on record. Don't go in to this event thinking anything less than two vaults will get you final collect ten prize.

Sure, it's an "odds" (wink-wink) thing. But careful, manage your expectations on this one. The last collect ten item will have you piling out your hair!!! It's a doosey!!!

I spent gold, so did my girl. Nothn:confused:
