They're in the game to cater to obsessive collectors like me. One man's useless item is another man's inventory spot that must be filled before their OCD drives them mad! lol

SDS

Haha!! I feel your pain on this with OCD!!! 😆 No matter how worthless or expensive, the slot must be filled to completion!

I would love to see a rigorous statistical analysis on packs. I trust math more than someone who tells me they know the answer.

The problem is, it's almost impossible for one person to open a statistically significant amount of packs to make any informed opinion on them.

I will say last year at the end of 19, I opened 1000 headliners and pulled 99 diamonds, which is one diamond off the 1:10 stated odds, but even that is a drop in the bucket compared to how many packs get opened over a whole user base.

At what amount is an acceptable sample size to approximate the listed pack odds?

This was the reason I decided to record 10k packs. A small percentage of players would even open 1,000 packs in one title. That's opening a 50 pack bundle 20 times. So I figured 10x that amount couldn't be heavily disputed for an accurate measurement of pack odds.

So, what amount would people consider a fair sample size?

Those items are in slots that cannot give a player. So i wouldnt call them a waste. Always better to pull a diamond sponsorship over a silver. Or a diamond icon over a sliver. It isnt like we can pull a Trout there.

Glad you guys pay attention, the pack odds specifically state 50:1 for an 85 or better player item.

So no, they aren't stuffing packs with cheap banners so they don't have to give you players.

Then the 50:1 diamond player odds are just a flat out lie

Just because you don't understand how odds work doesn't make it a lie.

Explain it to everybody in full detail so we know. If you have a 2% chance to pull a diamond from each individual pack what you have an expected value of pulling one 2% of the time in the long run. Conversely what would the expected rate of pull actually be from 2% odds? If you could post back up you’re using with studies proving it that would be awesome. Would be a good read.

Unfortunately SDSs pack statistics will never be disclosed, making analysis impossible. The only entity that could implore them to show their statistics is the US government with a threat of an investigation ( which may come one day).
