    AND I got repeats--all repeats--of crap I already have; only came away with one head ornament and two hats (meh). You're asking the whales out here to pay literally the cost of the original game or the expansion for 15 crates of CRAP.
    There are considerably fewer blue items and considerably more gold items in this crate - that will definitely result in more repeats than before.
    Let me add that IIRC it looks like the gem exchange rate got changed also. I got tons and tons of potions and only one gem per 25 items? That to me is an admission that the boxes are packed full of said items to the point of almost being worthless.
    The gem extraction for consumables is the same as it always has been. It's one gem per card for any of the white or green cards.

    Is it weird that I like the fact that I can FINALLY have Eoki's hairstyle more than I like those Dwarven mounts? XD

    I don't think it is weird, I think that hair style is the only decent thing in these crates. Only my opinion, of course.

    Doesn't look so good on my characters (it's ok on my Argonian but I made a point with her to never have feathers) but it is something that I would most likely have impulse-bought if it was available for direct purchase.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    Why most of the collectibles in those crates are so *** ugly?
    No offense, but what the hell is this?

    In general, the Marketeers are invisible hands.

    Even if the people you mentioned were allowed to walk on the same floors, and breathe the same air, as the people who make money, what they learned from them would cause them to be banished for eternity, if shared. The first rule of Marketing is to not talk about Marketing. :smile:

    More seriously, they are never going to explain. We can see what it is, and it is what it is. If they feel something needs to be fixed, and it is important that it be fixed, it will be fixed. There is nothing to explain.

    Meanwhile: Just say 'No' to Crown Crates. :trollface:

    This crate system is so devlish.
    Gamble for something you want.
    Collect tidbits to get what you want.
    Either way you will be spending a lot.

    I could have buy the breton hero costume for 2-3k crown.
    Now i lost 3k crown for things i dont care for.
    I hate ***$ like this.

    In the name of Molag Bals reptilian backside, who came up with this one ZOS? It sounds like those players, (you remember players right?) who objected to crown crates in the beginning are being proved right.

    Sadly... yeah.
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    Hi ZoS, i have spent almost 100 british pounds on crown crate and i don't even get the dwarven mount, can u please just send me 1 mount at least as that is my monthly allowance for gaming and can't afford to buy more crate. I just want to enjoy my game with the new dwarven mount without having to morgage my house soon. Please do me a big favor and just send me a mount as i am quite pissed about spending 100£ on nothing in return.

    As usual the gamble boxes continue to disappoint but this is a "good" thing as it just makes it easier for me to keep my money rather than give it to ZOS. How I wish they'd put as much effort into a few unique horses I could buy outright.

    I now have Sweetroll Envy. I hope I get that and the crafting motifs in my gift crates. That's all I really want (even though I must say the motifs are hella ugly, I am something of a completionist).

    @Threemoons Last I checked the Motifs in the crates were available-in game. Why not save yourself the trouble and just buy them at a guild trader?

    Totally don't agree with not being able to buy with gems and I also defended the crates. That is not to say I don't see why they did it.

    On the first crate season I bought a ton of crates and stocked up on gems. So the second season I just bought whatever I wanted with gems and still have close to 500 gems and didn't buy a single crate during the second season. Luckily I got the dwemer horse from the free crate.

    I would guess that others also have crown gems saved and they want to sell more crates. Screwed up. I won't be purchasing anymore crates. Also won't be purchasing anymore crowns. Been playing the necromancer in D3 lately anyways.

    When the store first opened the one thing players said repeatedly was, "Don't do ANYTHING like they do it in SWTOR!" Then they hired the very person responsible for the store in SWTOR. We really shouldn't be surprised by any of this.

    The drop rate is insane. I've bought tons of these crates and I've gotten about 50 bloody nix hounds.
    The most important thing in life is enjoying yourself.
