    those drop rates mean nothing. they were put there due to the fortnite class action case just to say they give odds. iv open 9k of thse caps n never seen one. do the math.

    Yeah... I bought one for a billion dollars.... Was tempted to try to sell it on trade... but, wound up just collecting it.


    I don't trust trade enough to risk something worth over a billion dollars.

    Thank you for supporting the game. :) Opening 9000 capsules is quite the achievement, both financial and time-consuming, tho the number feels exaggerated.

    I believe here drop rate doesn't work the way you might think it does. For example, if the chance is 1%, you are not guaranteed to get lucky after 100 attempts. I'm sure others can word it better, since I suck at english, but it is simply the individual outcome on this single dice roll. And for exotic, the drop rate is lower than 1% which means it could be 0.1% or even 0.000001%.

    Whatever the actual probabilities are, there's no denying that those particular collection pieces are still the rarest.RNG is known to be bad in this game - whether on purpose or not, I don't know. I am sorry to hear you've been so unlucky with collection pieces, but surely you've sold all the contents of thousands capsules you opened and could easily afford them from broker or trade??

    After coming from a very, very heavy RNG game, obtaining an item with a 0.0005% drop rate, getting 300 chances an hour... It took me 345 hours to get 1 item to drop. the average was 150. You begin to learn and see that the "> 1%" sign means "Less than 1% chance" That does not give you the exact chance. It could be heavily weighted to the account, manipulated in some way or they are milking it and setting the flower to 0.01% for the revenue
    (Picture below... Not fun to grind for thats for sure. Total of 500 hours. People have wasted 3.5k+ Hours on this one piece to drop and still not have it. It just highly depends on luck)

    With these capsule items, whenever it's an item you want, it just never seems to pop up. I managed to get one when trying to get the open 25 capsules feat but for these ultra rare collections, if you really want it, the best way would be just buying/trading for it upright instead of leaving it up to chance without having to dread how much money you've spent trying to get it.

    It's funny...last night or the night before there were like 6 of them on there, the lowest at 800m. I almost bought one as an investment, but as I'm not subbing, I can't trade cash, so other than listing it for 199m more...plus losing 50m listing fee in the process...it's a high risk for small return.

    If I see one at 500m...i'll buy.

    Exotic is less the 1%.
    Not 1%.
    Less then 1%.

    So it could be 0.0000000000000000000000000000001% for all we know.

    So even opening 9k under those condition would not guarantee getting the exotic item.

    Either that or you are UBER Cursed??

    But I have to ask..... did you really open 9K??

    i have opened over 240,000 time capsules in the last 3 years and gotten maybe 300 or so rare collections from the rarest items of any given capsule. I have also opened roughly 1,400 booster bundles and the odds in those are even worse.

    Problem is people finaly wake up and no one care about SP behind paywall becouse SP dosnt matter that much in this game those who care already have it or still waiting someone gona put it at broker so they come here cry about it .

    Other problem is in game economy is so broken that 1 bill in game cash means nothing and people thinking that other people gona spend like 500 + USD to get this collection and then sale it to you for 1 bil .Think again sunshine !

    Other problem is Devs doing this to you every time new TC pop becouse they know some of you gona continue buying stabilizers to get this rate BS collection :) and i dont blame them after all you are the one who got to choose its yours money !

    So there are few kind of people who got this collection:
    1) Lucky those who used free stabilizers and got it
    2)Smart those who bought it from broker /other pleyrs for in game cash becoue they know in game $$$ means nothing.
    3)........ you name it :) people who spending tons of real cash to finaly get it .
    cry babies people who dosnt have real cash or in game cash and want everything for free will never get this collection :)

    Casino always win and TC are 100 % one-armed bandit slot machine .

    First..... Thank you for supporting the game.

    If I was a Dev.... I would make a base item statue in your honor. Sadly..... the Devs don't listen to me. :(

    Second... Thank you for the Data.

    So 300 rare collections from 240 000 TCs = 0.125% chances to get a rare collection

    Which pretty much confirms what I posted that all we knew for sure was that we had Less then 1% chances to get them rare collections....
    as far as we knew the odds were 0.0000000000000000000000000000001%

    But now... if we trust your data.... the odds of getting rare collections are
    0,125% chances...... which is less then 1% as already mentioned.

    So 1 rare collection every 800 TCs

    Is that the official actual number??
    Were you especially unlucky??

    We don't really know.

    But at the end of the day..... it is less then 1% either way.
