Weekend boxes/ increase your chances at 5 star players

Coop2010Coop2010 Registered Users, Member 17 Posts
As “most” of you know, your chances of actually getting a 5 star player from weekend boxes are usually no where close to what Glu would have  you to believe from what they post as your odds of pulling a 5 star/prime player. However, there are definitely days and times of day to open them that can greatly improve your chances. Ive been asking everyone I know when they get their most 5 star players from opening their weekend boxes, which days, time of day including time zones, how many boxes they usually have to open  to get them (especially when they get multiple 5 star players in the same opening,) and anything else you think might help impact and improve your chances..... Also, let us know when are you pulling the greatest amount of “worthless “ players? Be as precise as you can, and if you happen to open several boxes at once please come back and post how you did and when (again, as accurately as you can be please). From what I’ve found,  certain days and times are definitely more likely to get you the player/ players you’re hoping for!!! As people continue posting I will continually calculate and update the days and times when everyone has the greatest chance for 5 star players. If everyone playing the game knew this and when those times were then it could change those chances, but if only the few of us who respond and participate in these forums help each other then we could all benefit. Thank you for any responses and hopefully those reading and  contributing to this can all start getting more 5 star players and get a little better value for their time and money. Good luck this weekend and keep tapping....👍👍👍

    I have an uncanny ability to finally pull a player from a cvc box after the last match of the day/weekend....basically when the guy will no longer help you score any meaningful points. 

    The other hot time seems to be friday morning before the Fan Rewards kick in.

    Just got the Prime Harper from the Phillies box I won in CvC at 7:03pm central time

    For me it’s in the middle of the afternoon after working a long night shift. But I have to be sitting in my lucky recliner with a cold drink and watching a Friends marathon. Works best with one leg tucked in and the recliner about halfway reclined. Works about 80% of the time.

    I would rather have 10 more crappy McCutchen’s than have to sit thru 10 minutes of Friends...

    I would live to give you the 10 I have pulled, along with the 8 Nick Williams...

    This is just wrong. You shouldn't be forced to watch Friends in order to get ahead in this game. Fix this, Glu!

    15 total Philly boxes so far. Nothing higher than 4.5 star

    🤞🏼Just ain’t your weekend bro. 14 CvC wins between 2 teams netted 20 boxes. Harper on ‘b’ team, Segura and Hernandez 3x on ‘a” team. 
    It goes in cycles I guess

    It definitely does.  I remember a streak last season where I pulled the top prize in my first box 9 out of 12 times.  Then I got garbage for about a month...

    0-7 this weekend.  I pretty much stopped playing around 1;15 on Friday

    Here's some serious futility: I pulled Nola 4x, Dominguez 2x, Robertson 5x, Williams 5x, and McCutcheon a whopping ten times.  I finally got frustrated and spent a bunch of gold to open even more boxes, and did get Herrera (twice) and Segura, so I guess it's not a total tale of woe.  Still, that is a lot of garbage for one weekend.

    Won every cvc this weekend so 20 boxes and I got absolutely nothing
  • matt_sackettmatt_sackett Registered Users, Member 1,524 Posts
    I didn't have access to the owner of the companies private wifi or bathroom so the best I could pull was Robertson 6 times and cutch 4 times #poopingathome=crappyboxes

    you can't spell deteriorate without Detroit

    My frustration level with weekend boxes is at an all time high currently. Between last weekends boxes and this past weekends boxes in roughly 0 for 30ish. Between winning CVC's and buying boxes I have not pulled a single specialty player. Pretty sure CS is mad at me and now I am being punished.

    WHY DO I KEEP PLAYING!

    I bet some of you have a system to beat the casinos and to win the lottery too. Yet you are still playing this game with all that knowledge and money.

    I’ve pulled multiple boxes with varying success. I’ve tried different times of day with varying success. Maybe Glu is rigging the algorithms and giving more out at different times and maybe it’s random. I don’t know. I’ve tried the same thing from one day to the next and it’s never the same results.

    I opened about 110 boxes, give or take. I got 5x Ceasar, 2x Efls, 1x Oddy, 2x Seguras, and 1x Bryce. Hmm. I thought I did well, but I guess I was slightly below average.

    I was thinking about crying/begging for an infielder that isn't a 2b....Instead, I'm hopelessly refreshing the app for an update on the player reward.

    2B, SS, and 3B are my 3 weakest. I’d be happy there.
