You must be the "crap content developers" dream.
Want to fix ranked PVP? Cross-server/faction queues, bring back 8v8s, remove bolster from all ranked play, add a 2018 expertise gate, remove ranked commendations from all non-ranked play, including the 3:1 conversion.

I spent less than a million and managed to get everything except the blown up machine.
Damn resilient things.

Blew up twice for me on my first 100k spent :/

AND I got my Magnus.

The rancor waited another 700k to show up tho. Interestingly enough it showed up after I stopped looking for it. I was just spending 200k to make a note on the average gold certs per 200k and it showed up on my last kingpin spin.

If it makes you feel better, I spent about 8 million credits, no rancor or blown up machine but got around 180 certificates. Written off the rancor and the machine as unobtainable.

Apparently we've fallen out of favor with the RNG gods.

Holy mother of the Emperor! And here I was complaining about my magnus...

(I burn about 100-200k at a time every week or so. Will try again tonight if there's no new event ).

Are you buying kingpin chips? That is the only way I can imagine that happening...

If you buy smuggler chips and then burn the time required to play and play and play to get kingpin chips, it should average out to 2.3m credits to win a rancor. Of course, RNG might not like you.

I play 200K on each toon, except for my main, I played about a million...

Won it about 120K into it on an alt, probably about 3m invested, give or take... Got everything else along the way as well, many, many blown up machines.

Nah I'm not stupid (at least not in that sense), I only bought smuggler chips and only played the kingpin machines when I had the smuggler's luck buff and only with kingpin chips won on the smuggler machine.

It was just incredibly bad luck.
