Simply put if a mount or item can be found in a crate you should be able to by it by crowns as well
crates should be cheaper to buying flatout but you have to risk rng

this way you can please those who hate rng and those who love it

    Unfortunately this will earn ZOS less revenue.

    Gambling should be banned. 'nuff said. I hope more companies will be compelled to abolish this cancerous system.

    Why? Not even just game crates, gambling is something we do every day and with much greater risks.

    Clearly you are missing the point of Crates.

    And the point of why so many do not purchase them.
    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

    Na. There should be some incentive to buy more crates. I get the cash grab, but who's to tell anyone what they can and cant spend their money on.

    If it helped people out, fersure. But anything thats purely cosmetic shouldnt be fussed about imo.

    I should think that it would be incentive enough for people who have the RNG's favor to spend only 400 crowns on something that the rest of us may be spending 2500 crowns on.

    simple

    Technically, you can buy a crown crate item with crowns. Use crowns to buy crown crates, and you'll get crown gems from extracting crate items or getting duplicate crate items. Then use the crown gems to buy the crate item you want.

    Unless you want one of the items that can't be bought with gems. Radiant apex, for example.

    If this made them more money they would do that. It's a buisness.
