Increased Command chest drop rate - a joke

I've probably opened about 300 tier 3 and 4 boxes this week. I received one crystal and two artifact boxes. I didn't receive any in all the months and hundreds of T3 and T4 boxes I opened before this patch.

I honestly didn’t keep track of how many tier 4 boxes I’ve opened since 5.10.3. If has to have been more than 120 since I had more than 30 boxes on at least four toons. I think I’ve gotten four or five MasDC and probably 8 artifact crates. I couldn’t use all of the pieces those crates dropped but I remember using at least two.

I realize without a screenshot my numbers are just anecdotes.

But in all the six months from 5.10 to 5.10.3 I got ZERO crystals and an artifact 252 crate I think once. So you be the judge, but I believe It’s definitely better. Would I love even more? Of course I would. But the fact that I’m getting them AT ALL is a marked, objective, improvement.

EDIT: I can’t be accurate in my estimate since double CXP because I used a lot of consumable packs on toons sub tier 3 where you would not have a chance at crystals or artifact crates. I do see a lot more CMTs from my low tier toons though.
If you think I've made a good contribution with this post, I kindly ask that you use my Refer a Friend link! Here is more information about the program.

Got 1 252 item from crates so far, yes it was a implant. Still better than not getting one I guess.

Few hours ago I got 3 Artifact boxes and 1 MDC in <20 command crates.
In total since they upped the droprate i got 2 MDCs and about 15 artifact boxes.
RNG being RNG.

I finally got an artefact box and crystal. But that all since 5.10 and after opening a multitude of boxes since they changed the drop rate.

I appreciate that the percentage has been increased, but there’s still room for improvement. Especially when the gearing will change again in less than 3 months when 6.0 is released.
They may as well give the 252 stuff away at the moment and let people enjoy the rest of the game instead of needing grind Ossus.

I’d even like to see a artefact crate added to the next Dantooine event for when you reach max rep or able to be purchased from the rep vendor. Especially when you consider how underwhelming the Armor sets are.

This^^^^

This is based on some figures that some of us got from people inside the gaming industry, that believe in the Loot boxes. These are the same if people really think about, except we aren't paying for these loot boxes> This is how corporate greed works in the gaming industry. Unfortunately, the Devs at Swtor don't do much, or any better with or Stupid command crates. Like some of the Devs here there are a few people that play this game, where they also have an Un-natural, or maybe natural luck lol.

Yeah, it can be .02%

I must be one of only a few who don't see it as a grind. I mean if there was no gear given I still do Ossus same as any other daily area.
