    Dear DCUO,
    If after over 200 capsules (some people had tried way more) I still couldn't complete a collection to get a material, you need to do some serious retooling of both the random number generator and whatever odds system you use. Yes, I have mentioned this before; you should also put materials gained from no longer available capsules into the marketplace or somewhere where we can still get them.

    you opened 200 capsules, wich proofes it all worked as intended.
    maybe open 100 more, then you might get what you need... or not...
    ppl like yourself are the reason why it works. why should they change?

    Yeah, it sucks but the duplicates you surely received from the TCs could be sold on the broker for cash to buy the missing ones. That's what I did. ;)

    the less a rare collection drops, the more of the other collection pieces you get.
    meaning that the broker gets flooded with them, making them worthless compaired.
    now, how many common collection pieces do you have to sell first to get 150'000'000$?

    I completed all the collections for the current TC and I have never had nor needed $150,000,000 to complete any of them. Keep in mind I just started back in the middle of January after being away for a couple years so I have never had more than a few million at a time.
    Maybe I'm just lucky (doubtful).
  8. stärnbock Devoted Player

    well, if lucky or not, would you mind me asking you if you oppened them on a premium account, and how many of them exactly?

    I wasn't subbed up but it was during the free month (I have since resubbed for a bit). I didn't keep count but I do remember that I ended up up buying at least 6 or 7 of the rarer ones from the broker.

    Best post all day. And it's not even over yet.

    Yeah, basing your experience on 1 time capsule over the span of what...2 weeks? Probably doesn't represent the majority of people opening them. It's good you like to share your experience though. Just saying that for most people, trying to get materials like phoenix, void, reverse flash (slightly cheaper), time-torn (also slightly cheaper) and others usually sets you back a minimum of 100 mil minimum, if not far, far more.

    i can only give one advice wich helped me geting over my hatred for TC's:
    open as many of them for free, complete all feats for gear and the emblems.
    trade what you get twice or more for what is missing to you to complete them.
    ignore all collections, because they are the worst part of what is comming out.
    instead of using them, put them on the broker right away and do not bother it.
    you will loose out on three feats for each new capsule comming out, thats all.

    The collections for the mats you mentioned aren't available in the current TC, right? I only completed the ones in the current TC so I can imagine trying to complete the ones in an out of circulation TC would end up costing a hefty sum.

    To my understanding the player-calculated odds of rare drops go way beyond that number. You're best served by resetting your expectations.
