    New crate weirdness?

    I spent two vaults on the new crates (yeah) and got 51 items. Given 10% rare and 20% uncommon, I'd expect to see about 5 rare and 10 uncommon items on average. Instead I got seven uncommons and only one (!) rare.

    Obviously that doesn't mean there's a bug somewhere - if a hundred people buy crates with vaults you'd expect someone to get such outcomes - but I'd hold off on buying the new crates till more people report "normal" behavior.

    Thumbs down

    I'm not surprised, last crates we've had I bought 32 total and got the following

    0 Rare
    9 Uncommon
    23 Common

    I'm not spending a cent on crates anymore.

    - I'd be really interested in seeing the stats for people who bought crates recently, particularly with this last update. (e.g. maybe Gree screwed up some probability value in the last update) It was quite annoying to do crate after crate, and it was all commons, including (repeatedly) crates containing only the damn Enforcer Guard shoes.
    - Maybe it's just that it's so much better than the garbage I got just now, but 23 commons out of 32 is about what you'd expect. The rare vs uncommon division is lousy, but at least they sum to the expected ~30%.

    The crates are pretty random and anyone who has purchased in bulk has had a string of bad luck. When I get a set of commons, I stop opening, then come back later and try again. Whatever you do, don't rage open.

    A roulette wheel can never produce a black number 20 times in a row! (Last words of many a novice on probablity).

    It used to. Be said if you delete app and reload before you buy creates you are more likely to get better items. Someone bought ten sets, deleted and reloaded after each set bought and got 12 rare items. It's good to have both time and money.

    You have an increased chance on rares if you buy henchmen first.

    I would like to know what the rare% is for the first crate a user ever purchases? I bet it is much higher than 10% to hook the new buyer. I have purchased 8 triple crates all together and have received 2 rares, diamond basher being the last one. more often than not I get triple common.

    100% agree with you on the rage opening. It has happened to me, and wish I could take it back.
