Unscheduled - Supply Containers

    Supply Containers are locked boxes that hold something randomish and potentially spectacular inside.
    • In theory, you would then ask yourself: WHAT"S IN THE BOX?!
    • Unable to not know what splendor might await you inside, you buy a key from the depot that unlocks it, and you get whatever awesome item is inside the container.

    Please don't. TF2 might work that way, but from my experience, a key from SOE will probably cost up to $10, for an unknown item that I could either already own or have no need for.

    This sounds a lot like Guild Wars 2's Black Lion Chests where you have to obtain a key either through RNG drop or buying one from the store and the rewards would be random. I'm not sure how they would appear in the world, maybe as a loot reward after killing enemies? Sounds like a good idea but I personally am against it because it encourages gambling type habbits, but this depends on the rewards too and the chance of obtaining something good.

    Please don't. I've had enough of these random reward boxes in near every other F2P game. It's been overdone and restricts certain content only to those willing to gamble a lot of money.

    If you make something spectacular, don't put it in a box. Show it to the players and I bet you'll be able to sell it to us for a pretty penny.

    Please don't, unless they drop and open for free, things like this make F2Ps very frustrating for people!

    Staple cash shop item these days. I'm not particularly fond of these - i don't like to gamble away my money.

    This sucks.

    I've spend plenty of money on PS2, but F-off with this idea. It makes the game seem like gumball machine.

    You want more $$$ from me? Put COOL THINGS in the game... put COOL FEATURES in the game... not this BS.

    I hope that was emphatic enough of a response :)

    You would have to tread very carefully to avoid making people mad if you do this. A way to open these boxes with in-game currency as well as station cash would be great.

    Maybe work Auraxium back in for use with certain purchases?

    What's in the box? Tears and disappointment and maybe some pocket fluff. There's really no reason for this to be implemented other than a cash grab.

    Oh hey, you took one of the worst ideas from games like GW 2 and CO and decided you wanted it in your game. Great.

    If you do this I want a setting I can check off so I NEVER get these. I hate useless garbage filling my inventory and the odds that you get anything worthwhile from gamble boxes is slim.

    No objection to boxes, but there needs to be a way for free players to unlock them. For example, 750 infantry resources. Then anyone can get them, but it's a lot easier to get them from the store - you could buy a packi of 10 keys for, say, 500 SC.

    First I thought it would be great, anything that makes a game more similar to tf2(item wise, trading, drops, etc) can only be good.
    But than I read a few comments and I couldn't agree more. Knowing SOE(money wise) it would turn out bad. The current weapon prices are already way too high. So no, please don't.

    Nothing I hate more than seeing a floating crate come in the way of my game experience.
    If you do give crate, do it once you die, like yeah crate so it doesn't affect gameplay.
