were the class 5 lockboxes nerfed again ? a few weeks ago I started to get crits (blue ones) 3000-5000 credits below what I used to have.

I don't really know how that's supposed to work. I don't remember the last time a got a crit on "credits". they're only seem to be slightly superior to the mission cost. What I do get sometimes, it's a purple discovery mission, which is reason I do those lockboxes

a few weeks ago, some crits granted 8000-9000 credits. now they don't go over 6000

They might have tweaked the bell curve, but I got an 8K+ crit yesterday off of a grade 5 rich slicing mission.

ok, I might just have been unlucky for the last weeks.

Me too.

I run a lot of slicing missions at all levels (mostly 6) on two characters and don't remember the last time I saw a crit on a lockbox. I do seem to end up with a lot of crafting missions and schematics so am overall a happy camper. I also seem to find an awful lot of boxes while doing dailies. The tech missions have also been good to me and I have a cargo hold full of purple tech parts so still consider slicing my most valuable crafting skill.
