Since the new patch herc boxes somtimes give fuel rewards, I was wondering if you could actually end up with more fuel if you open enough boxes. If the chances of getting rewards would all be the same you could easily earn more fuel than you spend.
If you assume the chances are all the same then 8 boxes would give 750, 150, 75 and 15 fuel once. If u buy the keycards per 5 the price is 120 fuel per card, you'll spend 960 fuel and you'd get 990 fuel back. I think the chances of the 'unknown item' reward are very low so then there would only be 7 kinds of rewards further increasing the profit to 990-840=150 fuel.
I'm not rich enough to just keep buying keycards and wanted to know what rewards other people are getting. I've only gotten 2 herc 08-09 boxes so far and they both gave me 75 fuel.
This is only the fuel, you could get some pretty good things for the scematic and the books :)
