I purchased one of the 24-pack Space Pirate packs and when I was done I had a bank tab full of gear crates for the different sets of gear. Thinking that I may have been extremely lucky, I purchased another 24-pack and now I have two bank tabs full of gear crates.

Did the drop rate get increased for this pack or what?

I now have around 4-6 sets of all of the new "Classic" gear as well as the new one on the picture for the pack. I have to vibroswords that look interesting. I received a new Command Chair that is a variation of the others. I also got a few of the new lime-green crystals. I got the usual affection and crafting crap. I also got a few new pets.

I believe the drop rates are tied to the amount of packs being purchased. The point being to increase sales when they are down like they had been before this release, partly through OMG i scored! word of mouth like your post
grats on your stuff btw.

Not really. I make a crapload of money and have no vices short of games so this keeps me entertained.

Purchased the 24 pack Hypercrate deal for the new Pirate Cartel Crate and recieved (- mats and xp buffs)
----
29 boxes of clothes
4 new pets
1 new weapon
1 reveler's fine cap
all these items were 'new' to this pack
------
2 Ubrikki Crimson Claw
1 Ubrikki Sand Devil
2 emote: intimidate
1 emote: menace
3 imperial banners
3 covert armor pieces
all these items were available in previous packs.

Do each of the new cartel packs get 'diluted' with items from previous packs or is this a database error in what is being rewarded from the pirate cartel packs?

I have purchased a many packs and noticed a couple of interesting things:

1. The Auxiliary Gear is quite common (ie the belt & bracers for the various armor sets)
2. The Color Crystals are much more rare than previous packs
3. The are additional Revan armor pieces which I believe are Super Rare

I bought around 10-12 of the boxes and also got a lot of the classic gear boxes.

But I did get 2 lime green sabers (endurance and power), one of the vibro blades, 3 pets, a classic phantom headpiece, and covert belt/bracers (really stoked about the belt).

A lot of the gear boxes contained simple looking orange belts, which I'm happy with. Can use them for my alts. I just want more covert belts :P
