View Full Version : Lock Box Question ( Smarter to buy tier 1 ? )

Quick question guys, this is obviously false, or it atleast it must be considering, but the description they provide with the LOCK BOXES make it seem as if the only difference between the lock boxes is the number of pieces you get?

Tier 1 = 2
Tier 2 = 3
Tier 3 = 4
Tier 4 = 5

If that is the only difference than with these example numbers

Tier 1 = 2 pieces cost = 10
Tier 4 = 5 pieces cost = 50

than if you spend 100 on tier 1 you recieve 20 pieces of loot
spending 100 on tier 4 = only 10 pieces of loot

So why would anyone buy a higher tier box?
Is there a hidden difference such as % chance increases with each tier?

I just got an Orange inflictor weapon :) out of my 2nd tier 4 lockbox and a purple grenade. Before them, I was only getting green and Blue weapons out of the lower tier boxes.

And yet another thread on lockbox numbers... Is it really that hard to post in existing threads that already have the answers (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?16989-Do-not-buy-tier-4-lockboxes!-Buy-tier-3-instead!)?
