I bought 5 today and got 3 Oranges, 2 weapons, and a shield. The shield has 70% recharge a second, and I got a sawed off (not great) and a Ground pounder that recharges 25% of stowed weapon on a kill

Mainly because you can get 2-3 T3 boxes for about the same price, and will get more gear from them. There is a thread on here somewhere that shows the (theoretical) math behind why the t3 boxes are the best value and odds of getting oranges.

Because when I buy them, I get greens and blues, which feels like a huge waste of keys.

For 48, I can get 2 T3s (6 items) or for 72, 3 T3s (9 items). I have 2 Orange items and I'm sure both came from T3. When I get Greens in T4, I feel kind cheated.

T4 lock boxes are just way overpriced for what they give.

Way too damn expensive for what little they give me. I'm glad some people are getting the most bang out of their virtual bucks, but that has more to do with luck than anything else.

They've never given me an item higher than Blue.

T3s have only given me a couple of Purples too. I'm getting screwed by the shell game :P
