These boxes are a very bad idea. Whatever is in those boxes should be up for sale up front...not some kind of "buy enough boxes and you *might* get what you were looking for".

Come on Bioware...I'm struggling enough to stay in your game and to be apart of this great game you have when you said it was going F2P, please stop giving me less reasons to stay. I really do not want to leave this game, Bioware...but you are not helping with this. Not helping one single bit.

Do it!!! There are plenty of reasons to quit playing this game. First off, you're giving EA money, second, better games like Project SWG, SWG EMU, The Repopulation, Ever After, and Guild Wars 2.

No reason to stay here just to be slapped in the face over and over by EA.

Guild wars 2 isn't that good, and the SWG EMU's are unfinished and don't want to work to get all of my SWG stuff back like my mandolin armor and mounts and meh.... swtor is good right now although these gambling boxes are horrible.

It's a money trap and quite frankly, should be illegal IMO.
Was going to metion the STO boxes.

It's gotten to the point with STO that all new content comes in those boxes, regardless if you're a subscriber or not.
You want the new content, you have to buy keys and gamble for it.
The few bits of content that don't come from those boxes go to the cash store ONLY.
All a subscription gets you is a tiny bit of 'funny money' each month.
Not enough to buy anything unless you save it up for 6-10 months.

I don't like random chances for any thing, but a boss drop that has a fix drop chance.

It will make the choice so much easier for some ...

I doubt GW2 was bad. It's just the rumor biodrones spread around.

One thing I'd like to point out to my fellow subscribers: Bioware will track what sells and what does not sell in the cash shop to figure out how to prioritize dev resources. I urge all subscribers to send Bioware a clear message that we are not pleased by this clumsy money grab. Support the game through our subs and criticism but do not buy these gambling boxes. Take a stand for the future of our game. Once Bioware sees that no one is falling for this trick, they'll have to actually make things that we want.

I never played STO. Can anyone tell us if people still buy these types of things? I can imagine that when they first launched, some people fell for it but they know better now.

In gw2, which I also play, no one I know bothers to buy keys to open the locked boxes. The boxes just get stacked in a single bank space. When someone happens to get a key, they open a box but no one I know buys keys from the cash shop. Does anyone know players who buy keys to open the lock boxes?

I played it at my friends house because I was planning on leaving this game for it. Guild Wars 2 was fun but it really wasn't that good compared to swtor.
