As a player who likes hoarding content, I'd always like seeing better drops. Agree 100% on how it's a bummer getting 75 items and 10 elements from royals. It wasn't so bad when the main event goal was closer to 20k items, but I feel like royal drops haven't scaled up with legend tiers as much as they should.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it mentioned before (I think Winston or Lirael said it in WC a couple of weeks ago) but I may be mistaken. I did appreciate that there were two sets of furn available and that you could get them from the EB + legends. I also liked that there was a 100k legend, but they didn’t do that for this event which is disappointing.

Yeah, it’s unfortunate when you spend money and get the same as what you would in a free box. I understand that it’s helpful to those who don’t/can’t spend money, but having a higher legendary drop rate for royals would be nice.

as long as bigs continue to spend thousands every promo devs will do whatever they like with little to no cares about the people who spend the odd £20/$20 here and there, and the only way they will respond to customer feedback is if they are at threat of losing this constant stream of income fron said bigs. But, it is unlikely they will lose this income as LB do not care about the odd trashy drop as they open 100's of boxes to get t10/100 :lol:

Therefore royals should give me more than pets. :D

Seriously though, the far majority of the time royals give more than 200 event items whereas free chests give less than 200 event items. Sure you get the rare box that drops less than 200 in a royal, but it's part of the gamble.

That last sentence sums it up, it is a gamble. If I wanted to gamble, I’d go to the casino, not KaW.

That doesn't read as the point to me. No one disputes the element of gambling here, and spenders are agreeing to pursue that premise.

It's the principle of offering quality directly correlated to the investment. The incentive declines when you are risking nobs for less than the content in a free box. Guaranteeing a minimum of X items, takes care of that and the gamble element still persists.

Anyone could relate to that business mindset. Even EA got that part right, whatever gamble you make, you are still given more than could be obtained through regular free play.
