You're gonna be kicking yourself in the @ss once they allow things to be decrypted.

Since gunslinger came out I have only bought the gunslinger boxes, at least 1 per week every week since then, about 2 weeks ago I got my first legendary and first outfit. The whole game is a scam attempting to provide a longer more fulfilling chase. My main problem is I paid to be able to open those boxes and that content and 4 months later I finally get my first real rewards, what a joke.

I doubt it, my guess is it will require an ridiculous amount of arkforge or real money, ala the million scrip lock box.

Exactly. Keep trying, Amack. Hopefully you don't end up playing the game utterly alone in the next few months.

Sigh, isn't it 9/9 yet? It seems like each day is getting longer and longer...

Probably be beating a dead horse if i'd say working as intended?

I mist have been, surprisijgly , lucky with gunslinger because I got all the outfits from the lockbox fairly fast. Save for the white hat which I only got just last week.

7th legion took far longer for me to get all the outfits.

Nobody would be posting on forum about a fullfilling chase if it was fun and boxes had fair reward.

Nope, I'd only be posting I got what I paid for from the Season pass in a fair and reasonable time frame, and I would be less pissed at Trion.

Wasn't trying to be funny. What you mentioned was basically the way the game was last summer, before Trick effed over the game.

Well, I've been able to make 1k AF since the nerf (fulfilling chase, etc etc), and that's just by getting 5-10 AF per event. If I was playing this same way before the nerf, I can't even contemplate how much I missed because I didn't think it was worth my time.
