Mechanical Boxes

Can we either make these at least somewhat decent, or remove them altogether?

Sorry but 4 ginseng, even on a free spin, is absolute garbage. The box I got just now was a 2/1 box, that didn't even give me anything except a "consolation" message.

I'd rather not even get a free spin, than get a "dead" spin like these boxes turn into.

    I know devs/admin aren't keen on releasing statistics, but can you please at least show us there's a chance anyone has even won anything major out of these? Cuz right now everyone seems to agree from the last promo to this one, it's a shitty thing to gain and no one has ever seen anyone else actually win anything pointed on the dials. :/

    Or at least let us trade 'em in for 66% tradein value :innocent:

    Huh. Neat.

    I did manage to line up 3 cookie jars (or something like that) and got a globe talisman piece out of it, so it is possible to get something decent. Issue is that the chances of that seem to be so damn small, it may as well be negligible.

    I got the 2-1 like Atalkez and got a consolation "go fk yourself" from the box, and nothing else. Kinda frustrating when sometimes I have to really postpone RL things to hit the hour per day and that's what I get.

    On the flip side, this is free. The only cost is remembering to log in and going AFK on a ship for an 1hr

    The mechanical boxes also sell for 25 credits in Delos. Do the free ones from the wheel need to be better? Probably not. It would be nice, but not essential. The ones you're actually paying credits for definitely need to be better though.

    The boxes in Delos are the same as the wheel ones.

    Yes, thank you, I know. They don't HAVE to be though.

    Oh no! I just got another mechanical box, and what do you know, another fail!

    I bought one once to see what they were/did before this promotion.

    I noped right out of ever buying another.

    I'd rather the boxes just be removed. I'd take critical hits, xp, and pretty much anything else over them.

    So far I have gotten 3 mechanical boxes where always two items matched. Apparently there is a consolation prize if that happens a fourth time. I'll post what it is here once I get it.

    If you match two symbols, you get a quarter box. Once you get four quarter boxes, you get... another mechanical box!

    I have never been more insulted by a free lootbox item in a game ever.

    DESPONDENT GROANING?? I'm tilted just thinking about it.

    free spin box
    As you spin the dial on the front of a mechanical box, the sound of clockwork gears emanate from within...
    The dial comes to rest, arrow pointing at a platinum whistle!
    The box now shows 3 platinum whistles!
    With a satisfying click, a mechanical box fades away, leaving a talisman piece behind.
    You have been awarded with backpack thread talisman piece!

    okay

    I was curious. I've bought out the boxes in the ARtifact shop twice (at least 250 credits worth) and had several boxes from the wheel so far.

    I got a talisman piece ONCE. It was Bait bucket Bottom which I sold to someone for like 30 credits.

    They are absolute garbage.
