    Stop buying lockbox end of story !

    If every veterans & f2p players alike who post about it on this forum do that, It will surely shown in the server's stats and trion will be force to rethink their strategy in a few weeks (maybe even sooner).
    If nobody buy "casino lockbox" either with in game currency or with real money through the bit store, they will have a problem, that's all.

    Whinning again, and again, and again, .... and again won't solve anything. Boycott is the answer.

    Are you guys even aware of how long it takes a casual player to get that much scrip? Let's not even get started on how unfair this price is to the F2P crowd. My suggestion would be to drop a zero off of the end of that number. It will still be high, but not impossible.
    Actually, I think that that is a fair amount of scrip to pay, if it was for a lockbox tier Legendary, guaranteed to give you ONLY amazingly awesome and rare weapons/mods/outfits, impossible to get any other way.
    But for how it is now, it's evil...you could say it's 1 million dollars evil

    No, it's not. Since even if you win you get very little return that can't hook you in playing again. Your million scrip is gone and you can't buy another box no matter what you obtained in the first one. Casinos work under the illusion that you can keep going to win again and again to further your gains. This is most certainly not a case here, where the gamble is a one way ticket into "no more funds" & "rien ne va plus".

    The amount of game time one needs to get 1.000.000 scrip is also certainly not insignificant, especially after the 1000% price raise on Arkforge to Key conversion that tehnically costs scrip as well.

    Yes, one million scrip. Why? We wanted to create an additional path to these weapons and their synergies for dedicated players who didn't want to purchase the Corporate Espionage Lock Box via the Bit Store.

    No, you created a path of someone dumping several months worth of script collecting to get 4 blues and a blue grenade as the above video shows.

    You also knew that pricing was going to cause a lot of anger otherwise it wouldn't have been 12.5k scrip on PTS and changed last second before PTS players could protest.

    While I understand why you did this, but the implementation / time was terrible. You should of gave us a heads up or a few days at lower prices for Vets to clear their arksalvage / script for the boxes then after a day or 2 implement it, then brought out a state of the game address explaining exactly why you changed it.

    That would've been more player friendly, it reminds me of the time when you gave the heads up about the keys costing script so people were using ark salvage to buy keys then to buy boxes in turn reducing players stockpiles of ark salvage.

    The PTS box prices were really low and it really excited players to get these outfits at lower prices but raising it extremely fast was just deceitful and left players with a bad taste overall.

    I take it your trying to reduce Veteran players stockpiles of script and arksalvage?

    So you made this decision to forge this new path between the time the Test server went down and the patch went up? Seeing as the same box was quite a bit less costly on the test server - why did you hide this?

    I would have thought additional paths for dedicated players would be something you'd address when making content - not add to the game in a clandestine manner at the last minute when patching.

    Scapes...someone is selling one of these guns right now. It is not ever going to sell for above 200k. If you want to create an additional path for dedicated players then you have to make the prize desireable. Aint no one got time for a 200k gun that they paid 1mil for.
