I could understand your concern if you hadn't gotten so much other stuff. I've gotten about the same number of Golden Certificates and about 5 CMCs, but only 1 companion contract and 2 speeders**. So, RNG, I guess.

** So far. I'm still trying to get a second contract for my other main.

I notice the companion has a customization slot. Anyone know if there are any customizations for it yet?

Not that I'm aware of, but the same is true of:
* The Gamguard from last year's and the year before's slot machines
* Dazh Ranos
* Darth Hexid
* Nico Okarr
* Paxton Rall

Far better than I am doing.
Had far to many CMC, mainly because I just don't need them as I got everything I wanted years ago from the rep venders. On my accounts that could do with a few items just, don't have the rep points.
Had lot of Gold Certs but that's OK as can use and do want them. Had just one companion so far which was yesterday.
Two bikes but had these last year anyway.

Finally got though the casino chips I brought so done with the nightlife event. If the companion had a much higher drop rate I would continue to play. As I have many alts and the companion is not unlockable accountwide. At present though I feel drop rate is far to low for the companion and feel I am wasting my time doing the casino's. If the idea was just as a credit sink well them BW really need to give us more of a reason to play.

Ive spent around 1.5mil on the low cost chips and not got a speeder. But I have gotten two Companion contracts, 4 CMC and 56 golden certificates, So I don’t see how the drip is too darn high.

I'd just chalk it up to the RNG I've played the nightlife event each time it's run and to date still havent gotten better than a golden certificate. People complaining about getting too many rewards and getting drop rates nerfed while others still can't get a good roll of the RNG just sounds silly. Enjoy your success, don't try to make it harder for those of us who haven't been sucessful.

I am furious now, you seem so lucky.

I used like 3k green chips and as yet I got 5 wraith speeders (already had them in the dozens from previous events), ~25 CRC, ~80 GC and a lot of frustration. Just close to 300 GC in total now.

Agree with this, have gotten 2/3 k smugg chips, and even bought a large amount of kingpin chips, have still yet to get the comp, and only managed to get 1 mount, and about 60 certs or so. If anyone feels you are too lucky, please try and send some of your luck my way
