let me be clear from the outset: this is not any kind of veiled threat or criticism with any degree of malice whatsoever. quite the opposite, this is me providing feedback to indicate a problem to help improve a game that i enjoy playing. god that sounds corny upon my returning to this game i think i had gone some 27 extended set packs with absolutely zero hits. it then dawned on me that i'd had a long line of very similar results long before said return. i'll admit i was a little frustrated when i posted what i believe was some kind of 'public' criticism to poxnora's help function mechanism - i even went so far as to offer calculations on other players experiences in this regard who may have had similar issues. following that complaint: the very next box i purchased, for the first time ever, i hit the mother load (or comparative mother load, rather) - two exotic and two legendary runes. the box i purchased after that was not as great though still better than any previous experience - again, comparatively. tonight, i purchased another box and appear to be back in the zero hits zone. moreover, the single guaranteed exotic was one of the oldest and lowest valued in the entire game. i'm not going to go and dust off the ol' probabilities and combinations textbook, but clearly somethings... goofy. like mathematically goofy. well really mathematically, logically, and chronologically goofy. prior to coming back to the game, much of a very similar purchase experience had left a bad taste in my mouth. i can't be certain, but i'm sure this undoubtedly played a factor in my initial poxnora hiatus in the first place. while i did drop 50$ into that '27 pack' figure, i'll admit the rest of it was through campaigning. i can see how this might frustrate a gaming company - though, consider: i think it's very possible the aforementioned 'bad taste' in my mouth might be a leading factor as to why i lack the constitution to drop money into this game on a more regular basis. in my defense, the reason i campaign so much is because it doesn't require very much brainpower and is an alternative to playing minesweeper while i listen to my lectures. if my personal purchase experiences are simply an anomaly (which, again, is highly improbable, mathematically speaking--like reeeeally improbable to the point of absurdity if i'm being completely honest) than you might consider finding a better means to make yourself aware of them when they occur. i make a very decent living and would love nothing more than to give you my money. but i don't want to be gamed you realize. i can't imagine anyone who would. your pricing models are flawed basically is what i'm getting at. this constrains your playerbase which in turn limits future possibilities. you guys have done a good thing here and poxnora shouldn't be a niche game. dream bigger!
