    Why SKINS are not worth it

    I swear the chances of getting your favorite skin in a chest is like 1% (well obvs not that low but it feels like it) like the chest is usually like 1/50, ik that there are chests that are 1/12 and 1/6 which is really good but there are more like 1/25 like its insane why dont they just fix the probability to get more money? Like if they fixed all of the probability of the chest then I would start buying chests again.

    There are also 1/80 (Sensational Chest) and 1/298 (Odyssey Chest). It sucks but at least these are just cosmetic items and don't affect the game. I've spent a lot on skins last year which I regretted doing and am now cutting down and just buying for the 7 gods I really like. And maybe a few really cool skins.

    I never buy chests, either direct purchase or nothing.

    I rarely buy chests unless a skin that I really really want is in there. Like when Crit.Dmg Ne Zha gets put in the one with Jag.rar, Hun.bat, and Run.exe, I’m getting that one because I already have everything else in that chest.

    Sometimes people don't want to spend too much money on a skin that can be worth hundreds of dollars.

    It's all about voting with that wallet of yours. If you think the gamble isn't worth it, skip the skin, wait until it gets put in a smaller chest or save your money. If you like the skin enough to spend the given amount of money, by all means go ahead and do it. And if you think that HiRez is simply putting too many skins in chests, buy only the ones for direct purchase. There are thousands of players that disagree with the rate of putting skins in chests and combined their wallet votes mean quite a bit.

    Odyssey is actually 1/498 at the moment and will probably be closer to 550 in the 2019 batch. But there are things only available there like old anouncer packs that you wont see in the other boxes (Mesmoreyez is the best announcer evrer).
    Poinnt is though Lootboxes are what they are, a dice roll. I think they're generally worth it when on sale, and the number of freebies you get just for playing really cuts down odds, i only put in a little bit for gems each month and roll on sales, so there isn't a single chest set i'm rolling 1/55.

    downgrade Valkalli and Einherjar Chaac from Limited to Exclusive like they should be and i'll buy up 55 chests in one go, only their Jarl skins should've been limited. Every bundle AFTER journey to Valhalla put the direct purchase skins in a box (Celtic Artemis &Terra, Space Egyptians, Knights, even the Ragnarok set only Hades is Limited)

    Earn more gems and buy more chest. Or do what I do and buy all of the emotes and voice packs out of the Emote Chest. Only 20 gems and you almost guarantee you won't roll one out of a 400 gem chest.
