    OK my curiosity is peaked. Do you literally never land players or do you simply never post your good pulls? You seem like a broken record at this point. 
  • likenightlikenight Registered Users, Member 389 Posts
    I have had a few ok pulls. 
    5 primes, no legends. 
    All star 8 so I spend an decent amount but not VIP. 
    I just seem to “beat the odds” in the worst way (like the 4 POTW boxes and only Bxp) and am getting tired of it. 

    I know everyone gets tired of my whining but other than throwing my phone at the wall this is the only place I can vent, not to mention it pisses me off as well when I see all the other great pulls people get.  

    I get excited that it must be my turn next but it never happens (clear sign of a gambling addiction)

    I am starting to believe that glu has me on their “list” and laughs everytime I spend on their loot boxes though.

    I totally understand frustration and venting. 4 POTW boxes without a player is rough but earlier in the year I went as many as 8 in a row without hitting. The bad runs happen and are pretty much guaranteed to happen again when you look at box odds. 

    As annoying as it can be, volume buying/winning boxes is the only solution to breaking the bad streaks. 

    Or perhaps in your case, you need Jobu.

    Lol thanks. 
    Yeah can’t hit the damn curve either.

    What is even more infuriating than going completely 0-fer on POTW is when you are trying to get both players and you keep getting the same guy like 6 times lol.

    I too am 0 for 4 on POTW boxes.  Tough week, someone must be getting all the good boxes.

    Got 2 POTW boxes from FR and pulled Mancini. Big whoop. He'll be trade bait in less than a week.

    Forget POTW boxes. I am waiting for the Game Changer boxes. Not that I am playing anyway 🤔

    I always hope I don’t get the players in the POTW box.

    Why give Mancini a cvc skill and not make him a cvc bonus?? Waste of resources..

    Likely means he's a weekend cvc bonus

    Guess I'm here to balance out the odds- hit the 2500 fan rewards and pulled both POTW from the 2 boxes.... sorry guys!
  • likenightlikenight Registered Users, Member 389 Posts
    Damnit. 
    Hit mine and got Bxp 
  • PewterCatPewterCat New Member Registered Users 6 Posts
    Spent 2500 gold to get 2 POTW. Actually won Mancini!! Can I hold the other unopened box til next week or does it vanish??
  • ShoveItUpYoenis2ShoveItUpYoenis2 Registered Users, Member 936 Posts
    Considering PoTW is 50% odds missing it on 4 boxes is real bad luck. I got Mancini on the 2nd box from fan rewards

    @PewterCat you can hold it as long as you want though it will have the same players in it.

    8 (eight) POTW boxes to get Mancini
    Everything else XP
    FU Glu and your BS odds !
  • PewterCatPewterCat New Member Registered Users 6 Posts
    Yup as expected the other one was 5k XP. Only "20% chance" to land the worst of all prizes yet it was 100% predictable.

    Any (definite) chance the other fan reward was 5K XP??

    seems like a theme this week with POTW boxes. I also opened the 2 free from fan rewards, nothing. Then 1 more, nothing, then a fourth one and I got the weakest player (Mancini). I mean the weakest player in terms of not being the WOH bonus on Friday and also the one that falls more after the boost.  
  • PewterCatPewterCat New Member Registered Users 6 Posts
    Forgive my naivety...Mancini is going to drop from 440 at some point?!?

    They said Mancini will be a cvc bonus player . I’m going HAARD on cvc this weekend. Hoping Mancini gets a big bonus . Still giddy over these field pass rewards

    Yes, POTW are boosted for 1 week only. After that, they drop to around the maximum regular overall, maybe a bit more. I think this week Mancini drops to like 340 and the other player to like 360.

    @tocopan18
    Thank you VERY much for that. So glad I asked! The hell would I've known that?
  • ihuffgluihuffglu Registered Users, Member 151 Posts

    Read the box description before purchasing. The box always tells you what POTW or POTM drops to after they lose their boost. 
    Same for regular event mystery boxes - read the description so you know what the pity timer does - glu likes to play around with it.

    I can only speak from personal experience but it seems like every time I buy a special whether it be a 2.99, 9.99, or 19.99 I always pull a player without fail. Bought the ten dollar one yesterday got Alvarez 430 and Seager POTW. How do you spend your money if you don’t mind me asking? Cvc edge and field pass are the ways to go imo to get players.
