"Random" boxes: yeah, right

Thu Jun 20, 2019 8:43 pm
While pro'ing the Aston Martin today, I ended up needing a few more drivetrain and exhaust cards, while I already had enough tires and suspension cards. So I opened a bunch of B class boxes. I did this several times, and the results were similar every time. I'm attaching a screenshot of the biggest batch I opened.

With a sample size this large, it's pretty obvious that this is on purpose: You get what you already have, and you don't get what you're looking for.

At a gut feeling level, we have all known for years that Gameloft is doing this, but this is the clearest evidence I've seen so far. Shame on you, Gameloft.

Loot boxes are a scam, odds are manipulated, only the fools would believe otherwise, after playing this game for a while. It is just one of the many hurdles we players have to learn to deal with in the game.
 May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

WOW. I thought it is bad, have had similar experiences with opening boxes but on a much smaller scale, but this...
ABSOLUTE, SHAMELESS, SNEAKY SCAM, dear gameloft, be proud of yourselves

Workaround would be to cut/fuse all 4 type of cards to exact same number before upgrading car.
But then dont be surprised if your phone/pc/tv die ;D .

I just think the loot boxes need to go, in all games.

I did that after collecting enough evidence. It still wasn't balanced then, though, making me wonder if the odds aren't just based on inventory, but also on things like cards required for cars in currently active events.

Same thing is happening to me. Only tires and suspension with the occasional exhaust. Gameloft, why do you insist on being cheap hucksters? Makes me hate you.

Is this only affecting class B? I have opened 45 D boxes, I got a fair amount of each part.
