Keys are rigged!

Postby xxbroomexx on Sat Sep 09, 2017 5:52 pm

So I bought rocket league like early 2016 and I've literally been buying keys since crates came out, and I literally have the WORST luck ever. With a grand total of 177 keys on xbox, I've literally NEVER gotten a BMD, Painted Exo, or Painted Import, and as many of you know you can't trade keys. Anyone else have the sh*ttiest luck ever? lol

It probably took me >50 keys before I got my first black market... and it was Fireworks :laugh:

I gave up opening crates and I just trade now. It's a lot easier to trade keys with people for the things that you want, hopefully Microsoft allows you guys to do that soon.

I agree. Personally I've only purchased for the use of trading and maybe opened >10 crates ever. The prices are all so confusing on Xbox for trading for me since they base it on Heatwaves (I believe) and I too would see allowing tradeable keys on that platform to help out users a lot.

Here's the solution: don't buy keys. The concept of keys opening crates is a way for Psyonix to cash out on their game without it looking bad on their end. Like you said, it's just "bad luck".

The crates are chance based, which simply means it matters not how many times you open up a box, there is a chance you will never receive an item that is on the lowest end of chance to receive the item.

Instead of using 177 keys towards cases, why not use these keys to trade specifically for an item of your choice? All you have to do is find a trustworthy trader, and offer a fair amount of keys in exchange for any blackmarket decal you want.

With that amount of keys, you probably could've just traded specifically for the majority of BM decals out there from Champion 1 to Overdrive crates.

Because keys aren't tradeable the crates are worth much more on xbox. Trade them for your items.

Ah, Xbox's stupid restrictions seem to have slipped my mind.

Whoops...

Don't feel bad, it's what they deserve for playing on an inferior source.
