    You need to hit the counter and then, a 50% chance at that box. Then either a .2% or .5% chance at DiMaggio depending on which type of boxes you bought. Gl!
    Holy shit... they’ve lost their minds. Absolutely no way in hell am I chasing that rigged bs! I mean damn just put him in the store.. as if .5 and .2 odds don’t make it difficult enough to obtain him they gotta come up with this bs. Really sad.. pathetic

    He'll probably be in other boxes next week.  I bet all this tomfoolery is because this is the ATG launch.

    I distinctly remember the same box last year for Halloween, earned the same way. I do not remember who was in said box but I remember the mindset of "hope I don't pull a player for 12/15 boxes then hope to hit the box AND the player inside said box."

    **edit** and that was with odds for pulling players better than this year has offered.

    Obligatory: Sorry everyone is poor.

    Rough numbers, but to give yourself a 50% chance, expected cost is in excess of 5 million gold. Hmmm. Thinking the vip elite would be good value there! /S

    Get ready for the pity timer to never get hit and since it's all "odds", we'll never know the difference.

    This isn't even close to tempting.  I get making them hard to obtain, but you would think they want to at least motivate us to spend....

    Correct. Same bs they pulled last year with a few different players. Disappointing

    Good news! Spotted an error while calculating. It’s actually under 5 mill(4.9) for a 50% chance!

    Just a Silver team from the wrong side of the tracks, so what do I know? 🤷‍♂️

    Wonder which special club already has several members with him completely leveled at D10. I don't even want to bother to look.

    This whole thing is just LoL to me. Last post on the math. Clearly, I’m delirious. The numbers I posted earlier assumed that every box would be a treat box. In reality, each box is either a ‘trick’ or ‘treat’ box...which means DiMaggio is twice as tough as the numbers I posted earlier. 

    Tl;dr: odds are not favorable. /s

    Willing to trade my 17-20 teams for a corner in your basement if you don't end up selling it. How's your wifi?

    My take on Dimaggio is that I'm guessing he will be much easier to pull down the road. This weekend, I wouldn't sweat it at all. The numbers posted above should tell you that while it's very unlikely(understatement) you get him, it's also extremely unlikely that he'll be in your bracket. To that end, it's a wash. In other words, I'm still looking forward to the first atg of '20!

    In the meantime, there are two new bonus players in the specials for just $150! If you need ANOTHER 3B, Molitor is there for you!

    Then there's Andrew Stevenson. His only redeeming quality is that he's another LSU Tiger.

    You can keep the teams and still have a spot in the house. No basement so I hope a spare bedroom works. The WiFi is working great

    1.4k in the screenshot to go to d6

    So idk maybe something like

    d1 750
    d2 900
    d3 1000
    d4 1100
    d5 1200
    d6 1400
    d7 1600
    d8 2000
    d9 2400
    d10 3000

    We can only hope? Because that wouldn't be terrible.

    I also saw a screenshot of him at plat 10 and it costs 150 lxp instead of evo to go to d1.

    Info isn't entirely clear, but based on the screenshot, it's not regular lxp cost. I believe the owner of that Dimaggio has all 3 FPs(70% total). Normally, its 65k from d5 to d6. His s/s shows a cost of 41.1k, which would make the normal cost w/o any discount at 137k lxp. That would be a multiplier of 2.107, which isn't something Glu would do(imo); they'd use a simple multiplier(like 3x, 1.5x, etc.).

    Maybe the person has only the 2 less expensive FPs?  I don’t feel like doing math, but 60% discount might make the numbers work?
