I remember in certain games someone claiming they had spent over $3,000+ on boxes that only gave them a CHANCE of getting an item... and not getting it
Oh, i think i know that game. Allods Online? :D

spending so much on 1 box when you can buy directly from auction/worldshouting trader... seems not a good idea...

No shit Sherlock.

But this is how it goes:

Buy 30 boxes, hope to win.
Don't win.
Buy 30 more boxes, hope to win.
Don't win.
"Damn, I already invested 6k crystals, I should be able to get it in the next 30 boxes and then I still got it at a good price."
Buy 30 more boxes, hope to win.
Don't win.
"Shit, that's 9k, I could have bought it for 10k crystals straight up...well 30 more boxes, hopefully I can win one and maybe a second or some other things to cover some of the cost."
Buy 30 more boxes, need to win.
Don't win.
"GOD DAMMIT THIS IS RIDICULOUS, HOW HAVE I NOT WON YET?"
Buy 30 more boxes, rage purchase.
Don't win.
"SON OF A WHAT THE HELL ALLODS YOU PIECE OF CRAP EXPENSIVE ASS GAME."
RAGE BUY 90 BOXES, RAGE OPEN 90 BOXES.
STILL DON'T WIN.
"YOU PIECE OF MONKEY ASS DUMB GAME I AM SO DONE WITH THIS GAME I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO ANYMORE.
Reload account with $100-$300.
Buy like 300 boxes.
Rage open the f*** out of them.
Win 1 item, and able to make a second, unfortunately, you just spent $700-$1000 on a box that you could have bought the item for $100.

/rekt.

That is why I can no longer play this game unfortunately.
It's a bullshit addictive lottery game that requires too much money.

Don't get me wrong, I'll never "leave" it, but, I can no longer play it as the cost is so high, the population is RIDICULOUSLY small now, and the devs don't farkin' listen to anything we have to say.
I STATE THIS AGAIN: RUSSIA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD ARE VERY DIFFERENT PLACES, START TREATING THEM AS SUCH. OUR GAME SHOULD NOT BE THE EXACT SAME THING THEY HAVE IN RUSSIA. PRICES DON'T MATCH UP AT ALL, THE RUSSIAN GAME IS ABOUT 500 TIME CHEAPER.

Holy shit I haven't ranted in a while, that felt amazing to get the truth out there and the burden off my shoulders.

I still <3 the game, but I seriously dislike the lack of understanding of community from the devs.
Meh

/Groot out! :love:

Groot, I can relate so much to this. That's why I never buy more than 10 boxes of anything, and never enter a casino with more money than I plan to lose with me :)

As for the rest, so much has been said already, it's pointless to rant more about it. Nobody cares.

Quoted from "IAmGroot"



But this is how it goes: (...)



is the urge to win the lottery really this strong you lose control over yourself? i mean what you describe does not sound to me like you do it because you enjoy it

especially if you know it can run this way

Have you ever heard of anyone losing every single penny they have at the casino?
Yes, of course it's real AOP.
I see, despite me being away for quite a while, you still live in your fantasy land where nothing bad ever happens and everything is raspberry smelling unicorn farts and sparkles.

I used to do that... sort of... I'm much better about it now though.

For the Black Friday sale I topped up 6000 bc and bought 120 boxes ( 1500 per 30 ). I spam opened them and ended up with a Fabled, Relic, 2 Legends, and a bunch of other stuff. In the end ( thanks Krafty! ) I got about 7100 bc worth of reimbursement for my 6000 spent. This is VERY rare, but it's things like this that make people "try."

EDIT: PS: Last I checked, Russia was not significantly cheaper than US due to the conversion rates between USD and RUB, and the cost per crystal. Admittedly this was more than a year ago, and I frankly have no desire to check back up on it.
