I finally gave in and decided to purchase not one but two hypercrates. I thought "48 packs should definitely snag me 4 certificates". But it didn't. It only got me 2 certificates. I'm a little bit peeved. I don't mind paying money for stuff and I'm also a subscriber (6 month recurring) but the drop rate for these certificates seems really really harsh - I'm not going to pay for two hyper crates just to get a mere 2 certificates. I hope that Bioware will loosen the purse strings a little for future customers. Sorry for moaning, but it's been bugging me for a week and I needed a little moan hehe.

Exactly, the drop rate is pretty awful. It wouldn't be bad if it was legacy bound but nope. They aren't getting any more of my money until they fix it.

I had 30 packs and got 4 certs out. At least I hope you had more luck than I did in terms of rare items.

I bought 5 packs and got 3 certificates. *shrug* I sure wish I could sell them.

I got 2 packs and got 1 certificate... guess I was extremely lucky then... unfortunately 1 cert is worth exactly nothing as long as you do not get more... which I won't get, as I am not willing to waste my money to get 500 jawagrams in order to maybe get 2 certificates

I was far luckier with my packs as far as certificates go, but I don't particularly like that the certs are completely RNG, bound, and can offer unique rewards from the rep vendor. The "previous pack" items seem to be a decent implementation for continuing to offer items for old packs after removal (such as Revan's Mask, etc). The rep is manageable, as it is reliably obtained (with the blue or purple rep items being a nice bonus), but I can see how obtaining an Aratech Eclipse or Crown of Avarice can be extremely painful with bad RNG.

man, and I feel stupid sometimes for paying the 15/month sub fee... cartel packs...not even once.

I have four certificates, spread over two or three characters. Bought about 10-12 packs or so. Guess you were just unlucky with the RNG gods?
Standard signature, with no creative effort on my part.

In my opinion certifactes should be tradeable. They are rare so it would make them xpensive. It would also justify the price of the packs as they do not really contain anything rare worth of selling for over 3-4 mil. Old packs did - items like thrones and Revan's mask. If the idea of certificates and reputation vendor is to REWARD players for buying packs then players should be able to do what they please with those certs. I only need 8 and after that they will be useless to me.

Another thing is that the certs actually pop instead of some item, taking the space and just becoming another trash for some users. Who knows what they could've rolled instead?
