Summer Wrap Smartbox Drop Rate

EME, could you consider making separate lootboxes for the beach wrap and summer wrap smart box, or at least increase the odds of winning the summer wrap smartbox so that they're equal? The droprate of beach wrap smartboxes are disproportionately high in comparison to summer wrap, to the point that far fewer summer wrap smartboxes are being sold in trade broker on each server, and at a much higher price than the beach wrap smartboxes

    Unfortunately, they can't change it now because people who already bought it under the current arrangements would be truly pissed. I assume the drop rates they have now are on purpose, even if it's unbalanced.

    Just as intended, whales are shelling out hundreds of USD for their summer wraps.

    I think I speak for most people when the lootbox gave me the impression that the droprates for both would be roughly the same. The box doesn't give any indication that the Summer Wrap smartbox would be rarer than the beach wrap

    The box doesn't given any indication of rates in the first place, which (I think) is the problem to begin with. Not that I think it's okay, but assuming this is indeed the case, there were other lootboxes in the past that did this as well.

    indeed, the wing boxes come to mind. everyone was winning purple pennons and golden gliders, while fiery feathers and pink pinions were not to be found.

    WTB Korean gaming gambling laws. BHS is required to show rates over in Korea, but we don't get that here, even though we get everything else through BHS decision.
  • The first day it came out I followed the announcements for a while and it was 10 beach to 1 summer wrap.
    Ofc thats kind of anecdotal but it does feel like summer ones drop a lot less.

    I noticed similar rates here. Summers do not seem to come at all. After watching the abysmal rates for myself, I decided to just spend a few days saving up and bought it from someone through /t. Granted, if everyone did this then there wouldn't be anyone obtaining the outfits from the cash shop in the first place, but yeah. You'd have to have godly luck to get through so many RNG windows.

    Even if odds where 99% in your favor RNG is only that. You could be the one from 100 people who didn't get anything (to make it even worse).

    When you play casino you should know before hand that you will likely lose most of your money if not all.

    As usual, no reply from EME on this.
  • There are no plans to offer these items by another method at this time (during the Summer Festival or immediately afterward).
