I'm an avid player who really enjoys the game but i must report that i haven't gotten a jackpot from a keycod lock box since May of 2015 and i've gotten hundreds of boxes without exaggeration since then. They last jackpot iI got was a Chaos, thats how i checked to see how long it's been. Is it just me having bad luck or are are others having the same experience?

First 64 key JP I got was Reckoning in December 2014, following 64 key JP I got was Omec Shield September 2015. That is all. If the 9 month gap thing is a regular occurence for me I should get a 3rd in June...

I get what you mean though, I have a friend who pulls multiple elite JPs without fail for every released JP.. more rng working as intended I guess.

I didn't pull a jackpot until the reckoning. Not really sure when that was but I started in may 2013 on PS3.

The struggle of staying connected for longer than 30 mins was painfully real.

Started playing Sept. 2014. 1st elite JP I got was Dawn's light on a low toon in Nov.2015. Since than nothing. I have gotten several charge blades in that time. But that isn't a JP. Like the Mister Ree said I know ppl that get multiples every time it seems...

My point is they didn't have jackpots back then but I didn't complain about it.

You should, complaining seems to get you what you want in this game.

The only thing complaining does is get a thread locked.

I never even got an oj gun back in the og PS event, but I didn't complain. I traded for what I wanted anyhow.

Absolutely. Look at all of the guns that have been nerfed because of PvP.

In 2 years of playing, I have yet to ever pull a JP from a key box. If I want 'em bad enough I gotta pony up the scrip.

If you sold said pony you'd have more scrip.

Likewise, but for me it's approaching three years..

It is what it is.

Now I would buy a pony. As for pulling Jackpots from crates, in three years of playing I have received not one but two reckonings. I gave both away. I have learned there is no sense in going after guns. Sooner or later they all get adjusted and a newer version takes its place.

I've had the 64 key capacity since the Chaos and Order were in box JPs and haven't found them yet.

I've also received 1 jp from the box during this entire time playing. I would say your experience is par for the course and Elite lock box jackpots are stupid rare to get. This has only been reinforced through watching thousands of players open thousands of Premium Elites and seeing the results.

It comes in spurts and doing rain dances doesn't help (was hoping it did). I bought loads of APS bit store boxes with the intent of getting an APS Courier and never pulled one.

I resorted to ritual human sacrifice in real life to get a jp from Armistice Elite.
Guess what.... it worked and I got a csx-clustershot mk I .


.........Many Bothans died to bring us this jackpot.

Played since May 2013 (on Forum in June 2013). I have pulled an Enervator and a Guardian Angel from the elite 64 keys box.

I've pulled 2 elite jps myself: chaos, and warmonger. Since the BS untradeable weekly event reward started I've pulled a single tradeable evnet JP: Stalker fop shotgun.

But I look at others and they're getting multiples of each elite lockbox jp, and pulling tons of various tradeable event jps... all the while I'm right next to 'em grindin my *** off and gettin piddly squat. "random" is not at all random in this game.

Pulled 2 Elite JPs, Omec shield, Cataclysm (gave away). More content with the Ark Forge drops, which have been plentiful.

I keep seeing a few people keep posting that the same players always get multiple jps from lockbox and events and that their personal RNG is broken..

Like you see and know of everything that happens in every shard on your platform. I know the same players might always seem to get the jps but they could have traded or purchased them with scrip.

Luck plays a huge factor as well as odds of winning. The more you play the slot machine, the better the odds, but if you are unlucky the odds still will not be in your favor. Like a coin toss, with a one in two chance of winning, you can call heads 20 times but the coin can roll tails 18 times if you are having a bad run of luck.
Players brag all the time about getting their named from arkfalls when in actuality they bought a bunch of bit boxes, or traded , or stole them from other players. A few even figured out how to dupe their valuable guns, sadly those players are no longer with us.

Yeah, I was also thinking about all the times during events after a major arkfall lots of players like to joke and always say UD!! or Piper! just to get a rouse out of zone and other players might see this and think jps are dropping for everyone else all the time.

Plenty of ppl do that just to troll! I used to be in a clan with a alt toon, most of the toons there were just run by a few ppl. They used to call out JP's when they didn't receive any just to tick ppl off. Also they would talk back and forth to themselves and jack the prices of items they were selling. They'd pretend to buy/sell items just to make many ppl think that's how much these items were worth. So sad what ppl do in this game sometimes.

I'm used to this sort of thing from other games I have played. Just imagine the things they could accomplish in the real world with all this time they use for their schemes. Whatever floats your boat I guess...smh
