Guide II of III

“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.”
― Epictetus


A Foreword

Hi everyone, I'm Origin / IGN TrueOrigine. Some of you may know me as TrueOrigin(s)/Starweaver or my twink BabyOrigine.

A while ago, I wrote Thrill of the Trade (http://bit.ly/truethrill) to help new players find their feet. But as I went along, I realized my guide barely brushed the surface. I came to understand that it’s not realistic to expect most people to stay off crates – they are, after all, a heavy part of AL's success formula and working very well for it. Sure, there are many players who are unhappy about it. You might be one of them, but hey, you’re still here. :) And so am I.

As with most controversial topics, there's very little info out there that's actually useful. I hope that my chronicalizing of this experience will be beneficial for you, and help maintain a win-win situation for gamers and game devs.


Introduction

AL is a nice game, I think. It's simple - 5-buttons if your pet starved to death (you ANIMAL!), 8 if you count the potions and are a good pet owner - but hey that's why I like it! u probably do, too. It’s free to play, but most of us inevitably hit a wall of frustration.

Thing is, most our desires go way more than what free play gives.

So instead of telling you to stay off crates, I wanna work with ya and talk about how they can work for -you-, if you choose to use them... until you’re ready to say "ok, that’s enough for me".

Want to earn gold without plat spend? Then this guide (http://bit.ly/truethrill) is probably more for you.



The Aim




What this guide aims to do, is help set u up to :

• Learn to pace and moderate yourself with crates.
• Actually get something out of the crates, with greater potential for less overall spend
• Stop worrying about the basics
• Create “enough” for the next expansion
• Be happy with your choices - whether you decide to use the crates or not, to stop opening or continue as a longterm crate user - how to do it on a positive note (enough good experiences, ready to move on), not on a negative note (too many bad experiences, lost too much $).


Hopefully, what I show you today will help you make the best out of .. anything, really. Coz if u’re happy, you’ll have something good to take out of the game when u go. But if you’re miserable, you only attract more misery here and elsewhere. It doesn’t just go away. 



Knowing the Danger Zone



So the #1 thing here I want to target is the gambling element. That rush of getting lucky, right here right now; The seduction of an easy way out - winner takes all! Next thing ya know, your credit card bills have hit the roof. When you've lost big and ya know it, it's never a good feeling.

Look, I'm not gonna wave any books here and tell people that they're bad, this game is evil, blah3. I don't buy that, anyway. But I’ve heard a lot of ppl describing being a victim of some kind. Or going out of control opening crates. That, I think is a big problem. 



Power of Choice



As an individual, I believe u have power over yourself, the power of choice. I don't rly believe in victims, I believe in good/bad choices and being streetwise.

I wrote this guide to talk abt how to maybe manage that power a bit better so that, well, you get to make life work for you, not the other way round (as much). When we're ready, we're simply able to move on to create the new reality we have in mind. That’s the beauty of it all, nothing needs to be forced when one is ready. 

Life is just that anyway isn't it, how well we roll with the punches. We don't reaaally know much more beyond that. ;) It's that simple.

Speaking of punches, let's talk about..





㊎ Crates. THEM DARN CRATES.



Love them or hate them, they r here to stay. First up, U gotta realize that every experience is gonna be different for you, for everyone. You can't control what u get, but I can tell you that if you buy n' blow 300 crates straight off the bat you’re pretty likely to end up with nothing and feel like a nothing. If you plan on getting something good out of it at some point, then Self-Control and Stamina are KEY.

Here's how I do it.


Before you open, 

it might help to : 


• Be in a good “space”, not be clouded with all kinds of emotions.
• Already have some kind of personal target - what's "enough” to get you started (you, not someone else)? 10m? 20? 50?
• Have x crates prepared.
• Already have plat you bought during a sale.
• Have something else to look forward to for the day.





The Opening : 



Opening Overview

Again, some ways that have worked for me that you might consider for yourself :


• Test the waters before jumping in, that's all I'm gonna say!
• Pace and open in bursts. Watch the video for an idea of how it's done.
• Might wanna keep your inventory clean especially when opening large batches.

• Stop for a mini-break when a) u loot something good, or b) u have a few consecutive 'bad' crates. This helps you maintain that cool-headedness, a sense of groundedness. Talk to friends, keep them close. Merch at the same time. These help you stay detached from crates, but milk the most out of them.
• Call it a day when u've reached your target OR hit your crate quota.

VIDEO DEMO

I made this video during last weekend's event, at the suggestion of Naitowoka, the French player who sold me his leftover crates. It shows you a method of "pacing" yourself. Credit must go to Vietwar here - he first introduced me to the idea of pacing, which was really helpful! Over time, it evolved into this.

P.s - u're gonna have to view it on a desktop/laptop. It's not viewable on most mobile devices coz of the music. But hey it's awesome music! (Shape of my heart-sting, hotel California-the eagles, battle scars-guy Sebastian ft Lupe fiasco)

The Yield 

(rough numbers)




Day 1



1st batch :

30 crates

1 myth mage helm



-break-



10 crates

doom ammy



-stop for the day, not feeling the love-



Day 2



2nd batch : 



162 crates

junk. (Lies. ALL LIES xD)



-break-



8 crates

1 x Ker'Shal Sceptre



-check to see that no one got woken up-

-long break-




3rd batch :



5 crates

1 x twin razors



+ 3 crates

1 x rogue armor



-break-



4th batch (video) :



80-100 crates

1 x twin razors



-break-



5th batch :



8 crates
glacian egg



-stopstopstop-

-thanks and free eggs for everyone in town-


The rough spend :


• 1.7k x 2 plat ($49.99x2). Leftover 300+ plat (big clue here, may delete this part)
• 330 or so crates (5m+/-)



Disclaimer : After talking to a few people, I understand that this was a particularly lucky streak. So it's probably not at all realistic to expect a midas touch in one attempt, from 3k plat, and/or during a normal drop-rate weekend!





Tips that might help you Cut Spend, Increase Potential Profit -



• Buy and stock lots of crates when prices are low.

• Start opening during event.

• Good to clear out inventory very regularly – as regular as every opening spurt/batch.

• Try to use plat bought on discount for crate opening. Reserve full-price plat for respecs, lixes.

• Be patient. Wait for GOOD events to open big batches. 

eg. In the past we had the myth event, first ever myth weps. Most recently, 40% plat discount & new myth weps.

• If u rly must open in between events, you could limit opening to, say, 5 at a go, 10 a day, 3 times a week.... Etc.


*** Do NOT buy plat or gold from other players, u're just gonna get yo butt scammed and/or permabanned one day – do it only if you’re ready for a full loss/write off!***


'



Now we come to the 2nd important bit :





㊖ Checking Out & Cashing In



You might wanna consider :


• Selling your leftover crates during event, when prices are high.

Naito had opened 800 and said it was enough for him, so he sold me his 100+ leftovers at 22.5k each. Assuming he'd bought at 10k/pop before the patch, thas a nice way to recoup. Good stuff!! It also lets you avoid temptation to continue.

• Selling off your yields when prices r at a peak. I can't teach you how to get a feel for this beyond what I wrote in Thrill of the Trade (http://bit.ly/truethrill), but you can develop your own gut instinct. Try to get a feel during the event.

• Paying finders fees for closed sales
 - This will encourage players within your extended circles of friends to refer potential buyers and sellers to you. The idea is to pay them commission for a successful deal.

* Also might be good to check that your runners' runners aren't unwittingly trying to sell your own stuff back to you, HAHA. Make sure ppl know u're the seller.



㊣ Turning your Winnings into Earnings



This is another important part because up to 70% of lottery winners lose their winnings within a few years (google it). Let’s say 3-7 years in RL; in-game it would be like 2 weeks to a few months or something. I think it's really easy to happen if you’re not prepared.

Most people will jump the gun and spend right away, buy new shiny things, before they start making any profit. And AL has plenty of shiny new things. That’s a sure-fire way to stay poor, and have to pump more money in again too soon for comfort.



I’d recommend you make your money work for you. Talk to people, start with what you know, don’t be afraid to start small till you find a formula that works for you. There's a breakdown of it in Thrill of the Trade (http://bit.ly/truethrill) if you're interested. 

One way is to merch until you’ve maybe doubled your profit before taking a reward of, say, 25% off those earnings. How quick / well you do in this area is up to you.


Last Words: 



All considering, sts and devs do a fantastic job of keeping this game amazing, they've got a winning formula and are consistent and quick in their delivery. So yes, a big thank you goes out to them for that, and ofc for the nice bonus ^_^

But y'know, I'm the kind of person that lives across the road from a casino, has to walk through it almost every day for work, yet has never gambled all their life. Crates in AL were a first for me. No regrets - I now know how hard it can be to resist temptation - but I hope never to have to open crates again if I can help it! :) It's just a personal choice; In a way, I wrote this guide as a promise to myself.

In reality, we're not perfect, shouldn't have to be.. but I think it's good to keep evolving. The game is like a recreation of society on a small scale. Good practice grounds! Well what’s "reality", anyway, it's just what's made real through how we choose to handle what life throws at us. Whether we like it or not we are all inter-connected with each other through these choices. For better or worse.

Perhaps everything is already perfect and as it should be, one day we will be sitting with our homies in some place, relaxing with all the time in the world, and laughing over our misadventures and marveling about how easy this all was. :) Hope this has been beneficial for you.



Life’s short, no time for bad juju. Good times!



Peace out good peepols.

Psst. you've just found my nearly-semi-secret diary entry that I've inserted here coz ik most people would never find out anyway. boohahaha. ;'D

Btw, did u enjoy the Midas video? :')

Whenever I can sneak in a moment in my busy life, my inner child comes out to play! ^^ I seldom publish stuff, so I like to make each one count. Each piece is like a tiny expression of my soul, and a whisper of a drop from my mind's ocean. The slightly unfinished look is a bit of a signature. I don't participate in forums and contests much - there's too much fighting and not enough exploring and sharing. The world will always provide enough for you as long as you learn to honour its natural laws. Don't you see? :')

Despite my ideas, however, I'm really not setting out to change anything or anybody. But I'd like you to imagine what a tiny shift in perspective could do for you - you stay the same, it's just viewing things from a different point.

For now, relax and enjoy a little taste of flaming freedom.. and if u've already watched it don't be disheartened, u never know when I might update the link.......... :')

Please take my post as constructive criticism - I don't mean any disrespect.

This is a nice presentation of crate popping; however, I enjoyed and respect your other guide, Thrill of the Trade, much more than this one.


I came to realize that it’s not realistic to expect most people to stay off crates

I'd love to place a wager on this, as I think "crate poppers" are the minority at the present time. That's not really my point here, though. Before reading this, I was hoping you were going to enlighten us on how to obtain Midas Touch through reasonable means (sorry, I don't think spending $100 is reasonable for an achievement). I guess I misconstrued the play-on-words title.

Anyway, you put a lot of effort into making this, and I appreciate you sharing your experience here. After watching it, I definitely don't have the urge to open any crates :D

Like you said many times throughout your thread: it's our own choice of what we do for enjoyment in the game. So I have no disrespect in that regard.

Nice post! I would say that you are correct in thinking that your streak was EXTREMELY LUCKY!!

I checked my AL billing log last week, and since March I have opened approximately 230 locked crates (including 90 during this most recent mythic weapons weekend). In that time I have looted no arcane items, no mythic items, 1 McCraw Egg, and 2 Ethyl Eggs, and no other eggs. The best item I pulled from a locked crate was 150 plat bonus, which I subsequently spent on opening more crates LOL.

I'm not ranting to complain, I never opened the crates expecting the rare items, just hoping. But I think my experience more accurately reflects what the average player should expect. On average looting a mythic or arcane item takes hundreds of crates. To have looted 2 arcane items and half a dozen mythic items in about 300 crates is extremely lucky. Most people would be lucky to loot a single mythic or arcane item in that number of crates. I know people that have opened more than a thousand crates without ever looting a good item.

If those items fell to everyone so easily, they would be way more common than they are, and would go for much much less gold on the open market.

The "Midas Touch" achievement is not one that can be bought, unless you are ok with spending thousands of dollars on plat. Otherwise it is one that must be earned (or borrowed from friends, which I have a BIG problem with). Yes, you can get lucky, but most will not.

Another well-written post, and for that I give salute you!

Though the main subject matter here is "gambling", you've provided some great tips on how to do it wisely. Gettin' a feel after every batch of opening dem crates reminds me on how I pause every once in a while when I can't get through a level in Candy Crush. Resuming after a well-deserved break usually does the trick ^.^

The amount of crates you posted tells me you were working with somewhere around 5k plat, plus or minus a couple hundred. That's an insane amount of plat spent. o.O!!

Granted, you got several items that made the entire process worth it, but it's still incredibly expensive. Most players can never hope to own that kind of plat.

Pacing aside this seems to be a spend money thread. LOL

Wow.. I'm humbled, thank you everyone for all your kind words! Initially I wasn't sure how this kind of writing would be received, quite delighted that it worked out ok! :D


On average looting a mythic or arcane item takes hundreds of crates (....)

If those items fell to everyone so easily, they would be way more common than they are, and would go for much much less gold on the open market.

The "Midas Touch" achievement is not one that can be bought

And it should stay that way, imho. This didn't get published for weeks coz I had this internal debate about which info might be useful and which might do more harm than good. Parts I thought might kill the economy, make things harder for everyone, got rephrased or completely cut out ..

for eg, one whole section that fell on the cutting room floor explained why I stopped at only 40 crates on day 1 but kept at it on day 2 .. why I decided to buy more crates at peak prices .. It was titled "the arcane theory", so.. u get the idea. :wink:

Someone here just mentioned that it normally costs more to open 300+ crates - that's a big clue there. Big clue. Depending on peer feedback, might even delete that part..



Do you study Stoic Philosophy?

Hey Time, funny u mention that. I've never formally studied philosophy, nor read many books, believe it or not.. rarely tune into any kind of mass media either.. just always felt they discouraged the imagination.

Anyway your post got me looking up "stoic philosophy" for the 1st time - That quote was picked from a general list.. and .. this is a bit disconcerting for me *raises face to sky* What does this all meaaan! lol

Thx. :) ya it does. Only the elite gold ones give a (wee) chance of Arcane, I think, on top of certain mythics : Staff - puzzlebox, maul - war chest, hooks - pirate. Cld be wrong, check around. Prolly consider the cost.. since 100 gold elite could easily cost anywhere from 3-7m or more. It's a numbers game.

Cool vid. I'm loving how I get to share a bit of your success. I tried to feel the rush of seeing those Arcane and Mythics and pretending they were mine because the 500 crates I opened a while back gave me complete crap lol

I really appreciate the time and effort you made to really give the rest of us a feel for using strategy, and having fun with it. The video was a great way to show us what another successful player goes through to obtain the goal and get the swag! Thanks so much for making it a fun learning experience! :3 [member of the IT'sAllTrue fan club]

Followed another hunch after 2 noble plates rolled out during an arena run. Had 2 crates with me, got this on 1st crate. Tiny yay ^^

Is it best to wait for new expansion (Arcane Shards) before opening crates now?

Do certain pinks from crates scale to character lvl or no?

Depends on personal preference. I'd wait for new expansion - higher risk but potentially bigger returns. If you like medium risk medium returns, open now. Most crate loot's now nearly half their value as compared to when they 1st came out, but still a tidy sum.

But whichever u choose, it's more important to watch if ur character's "dice" is turning in your favour. Like know when to stop and continue another time or day. Just look for the signs u'll get the hang of it.

Yes they scale. But you can get mythics/arcanes at any level.

:D

Beats me. Made a gemming guide, didn't think it was worth publishing. Ya sure it works but, there's no point helping the rich get richer. Has to be something any player can do at a beginner level. When I find out what that is, I'll let y'all know :p

take it as a great motivation..
Even the players who get luck by opening crate still need do farming & merching too ;)
