Opening 80+ T4 Command Crates

Made a video of opening 80+ boxes to share with people. I'm curious how everyone's odds have been in T4. I had this hope that the game was tracking the levels, like the previous tiers and that even though it doesn't show a level increase your odds will improve the more you open. That does not seem to be the case. Thank God, gear is back in ops again :P

Here's the video, I recommend speeding it up or going to the end.

Anything purple was a duplicate, unless it was a relic.
248 gear at box 24, 27 and 28, then never to be seen again. 86 total opened.

Any healers notice a very low drop rate of focused retribution relics? I've never seen a 242, 246 or a 248 focused drop. My other healer has the same luck.

The t4 crates are rigged mate.
Pure and utter fixed bollocks.The sheer amount of wasted time spent for fodder is ridiculous.
I have posted on this subject before but here is a short example from a few hours play earlier.
Crates opened 6,the amount of blue implants relics 5,the other was orange crap.
Get used to it,it sucks elephant don gs.

Ive got a video of opening about 80-100 t4 crates with my gunslinger. I was pretty lucky. 2x 248 oh blasters,1x 248 mh blaster, 1x 248 relic, 1xv248 ear, 2x 248 implants, 1x 248 head, 1x 248 boots, 1x 248 bracer, 2x 246 chest, 1x 246 legs, 1x 246 gloves, 1x 246 relic. Lots of blues. It was a mass opening. I did not track total drops tho.

When BW controls and manipulates the "odds," you can pretty much count on them doing so in such a way that it is detrimental for the player and beneficial for them. The longer it takes the player to acquire items that are obtained via subscription only, the better it is for BW's bottom line. Overall happiness of the player is not their concern, as their current system is most profitable when the player is in a constant state of anxiety and anticipation.

Needless to say, I couldn't give a **** about Galactic Command and the type of mentality it takes to determine that it should fully replace a system based off reliability and planning... in a video game of all things... is borderline disturbing.

I like Command System. The only 1 thing I would like to change is option to change Tier gear for components or something. I dont like to get item that I already have. If I need 2-3 items left to get full tier gear, chances to get items I need are small.

Galactic Command has been a lie with the Command Crates being Lie Cake

Pretty much, blue relics are a constant.

Wow, very nice. I got a set of 12/14 246 gear very quickly, but was hoping to get more 248s, since the stats are quite a bit higher. Haven't really been wanting to pvp much lately to upgrade the small amount of 242 shells that I had gotten before 5.2. My raid team can't consistently do Nim, so its hardmode farming and pvp I guess if I decide to push 248 gear. Unless I can get some of your luck.

I agree, I think we should be able to convert set gear into unassembled components, or something along those lines.

that!

The command system ain't that bad, it just takes TOO MUCH time to gear up my alts, i've got like 25 or 28 alts, mostly i like to play with 3-5 alts (1 sorc healer, 1 dps sage, 1 merc or trooper) .

Screw operations and PvP, let's just farm CXP for BiS. Sounds fun!
