Losing money on 400 Slicing Lockbox missions

Just maxxed out my Slicing, and recently I swear my companions are consistently returning with lockboxes that are worth less than the missions themselves cost. Whether I choose the 49-50 range missions or the lower ones.

This seems like a recent development to me, but maybe I'm crazy. Did anything change with Slicing recently? Are the mechanics for 400 Slicing... different somehow?

It's being worked on now and a fix should be rolled out in a future patch. In the meantime, it'll be added to our known issues list.

Also, even with the bug you should still make a profit from the 400 slicing lockbox missions because the crits still give you 4-5k credits plus a mission that is worth 4-40k(+). You only need to crit one in every 4-6 missions to make money and my Maxed out Risha does that.

Thanks! Nice to know I'm not crazy.

Looks like at the moment you'll lose money most times but crits will make it still pay off in the end...? Hard to tell.

You know you can gather lockboxes yourself for free, right?

No, I really hadn't noticed all those Slicing lockboxes I've been gathering for 30 levels since I picked up Slicing.

My concern was whether or not I should keep my companions deployed constantly on slicing missions like I used to be. I'd stopped recently.

And the completely broken crew skill is not fixed in today's patch. I suppose that means it won't be hotifxed and we'll have to wait for next Tuesday?

Sadly, it's looking that way.
