    While everyone else is getting loads of really cool awesome stuff, like the surgeon design, a Zeus drone, lf-4'S and other really freakin' unbelievably, incredible things worth a ton of URI, this is what I get: Received item: Ammunition - SAB-50 (5.000)


    This game sucks, I don't know why I keep playing. . . .

  2. Ya, you've been getting crap from booty's and all the other special boxes you have crafted or purchased Taffy.

    I always hope to see some happiness come from you on the chat regarding bonuses. I hope your luck changes !!

    Welcome 1taffy1,

    Thank you for your feedback. Keep doing it and who knows... may be you will obtain some "really cool awesome stuff" :) I cross my fingers for you.

    test020 and Sapphire like this.

    It just doesn't seem fair. Some of the stuff I got was lesser value than the green booty, like a one hour booster and that was it. At least with green booty you get token ammo and maybe a log disc or xenomit to go with it. Yet, at the same time, people were getting ship designs, etc. and not just one, but multiple great items. Every single thing I picked up was garbage.

    Thanks, Q, you always make me feel better! :)

    It's all about luck. I wish it was easier but its a game. Enjoy play for fun and get lucky like me. I got some cool ship designs. The more you open the better chance you have for some cool stuff. I know its very frustrating but just have fun. I know your luck will change.
  6. Also remember no matter what if you crafted it that means it was free, so better luck next time. :D

    RNG. Btw one advice, do not collect Apocalypse Booty boxes, collect Obsidians when they're live. Afaik, they both have same rewards, but drone designs are replaced with ship designs. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    1taffy1 I would recommend to have a look at our event FAQ's you can find some information about [Reworked] Red & Blue Booty Box FAQ and other booty boxes, each booty contain different items. It's all about luck and I say that from my own example, I always been unlucky with green keys, but when I bought Obsidian keys I manage to get a lot of cool designs. So keep trying and we wish you good luck!

    Do OP have any more questions or shall we lock the thread?

    open Obsidian boxes if u want to get cool designs for ships.
  14. Its all about luck lol. Im farming like 60-100 scraps all day and usually keep getting useless ammo :D just save your scrap for obsidian, you will get better designs. Last time i got inferno spectrum, and if you want pet designs save your scrap for red booty.

    Yes, you can close the thread.
    I'm still getting crappy stuff, no matter what boxes I open. I doubt it's luck, because after a while, the odds are supposed to catch up with you, and that doesn't seem to be happening in my case, where others keep getting the good stuff consistently.
  16. I don't really play anymore, but I did have one spare obsidian key. I figured I'd use it just for chuckles and post here....I got 5,000 SAB ammo ....I guess the jokes on me too. lulz

    Made the mistake of crafting another apocalypse booty key. Here is the lovely, well worth it booty I received. Was it a zeus drone? Was it something I needed? Was it worth it? NOPE NOPE and NOPE!!!! Stop putting CRAP in these boxes!

    04.11.2017 - 09:57[​IMG]Received item: Ammunition - SAR-02 rocket (1.500)

    Are you kidding me? SERIOUSLY? This is what you give out with the bonus boxes and I already have 30k of them from years past.
    I keep getting cheated out of these boxes. You suck, DarkOrbit. Truly. You do.

    @1taffy1 I have found using only one key occasionally is going to give you the crud. Those people saying they got the good stuff have probably used hundreds of the keys to get what they have. The time to complain is when you have 100+ picked boxes (IN ONE DAY) and all you get is the ammo. ONE box in 3 weeks I expect to get crud.
  19. I got 5 of those keys yesterday Taffy. 4 where the exact same as you got, 4 in a row o_O Last one was some Drone design thing.

    That was 100% the last purchase of those I will do. Oh well, the SAR-02 Rockets will come in handy I guess :rolleyes:

    And yes I said purchased not crafted, so it doesn't seem to matter, crafted or purchased they suck :cool:

    Okay I guess I am just lucky as I collected a LF-4 and a full Zeus Drone and have used about a dozen of these keys, some I never knew I had and 7 I crafted. I will agree most of them contain SAB-50 Ammo or SAR-02 Rockets but then the Booty Chests are full of Assembly Components now too, but unless you are doing GG's ONLY how else are you going to get the gear to be UFE?

    All of my keys were FREE. Others left the Aurus in the maps and I seem to be getting a lot of extra ores with my cargo drops so I enjoy the extra ammo, drone designs, and MY ZEUS Drone.
