AnkaTracker Announcements

In the run-up to Kwismas, a special new Mystery Box is making a showing, or rather several showings. Every weekend until December 31, you've got a date with the Kwismas Pet Mystery Box!

 

Never-before-seen pets, inspired by the monsters of Kwismas Island, are waiting for you all snuggled up in their brand-new Mystery Box! You'll also find more traditional gifts inside.

Until December 31 (11:59 p.m. Paris time), the Kwismas Pet Mystery Box will be available every weekend between Friday (5 p.m.) and Sunday (11:59 p.m.) for 1€50 or 1,500 OG!

So you call it a 'Pet Mystery Box' but you don't even get a pet every time? I read this and assumed you would get a pet 100% of the time and maybe some other items as a bonus. I can't believe I just spent 1500 ogrines on a Bitter Shigekax... No wonder this game is failing

This is the kind of thing that are getting the world government attention. Ankama calls it Mystery box, but it is RNG based system that promotes gambling. Electronic Arts (EA) and their lackeys in Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB ) have been dancing around the gambling controversy by saying that loot box are not gambling because players gets something every time they open one. But now, every concerned government in the world is in the same opinion that loot box are indeed promoting glorified gambling to players (which is egregious since some if not most players are children). 

Does this "mystery box" promote gambling? 
Can you acquire this item in-game for free?
Do you get what you want in this system or do you have to spend a lot of money to get what you want?

Belgium has already banned loot boxes. I'm sure more countries will follow. There is something seriously wrong with this system anyway. It manipulates vulnerable people into buying loads of boxes in order to get the one item they want.

It wouldn't be so bad if you had the guarantee of getting one of these pets but it's not the case here. They could just let their customers buy every item separately but that means less money of course.

I personally despise this sort of move. Even though you could argue that you don't need to spend real money to buy these, getting kamas still requires time. And to me, buying something and not getting what I want in return is getting ripped off no matter what.

While I do not really think of this as gambling, as Gunner states, I do agree it is false advertising, as the others have propounded. It really cannot be called a "pet" mystery box if there is a chance of not receiving a "pet". Would it be so difficult to change the box and reset it for all those who have already bought one? BTW I have received one of the pets for free as part of the advent calendar event, so in answer to Gunner, it is possible, at least for subscribers.

I meant, can you get the Kwismas Pet Mystery Box in-game for free? I was not talking about getting pets. If a child would have the compulsion to get the rarest pet, can he get the kwismas pet mystery box in-game or do he needs to keep spending real money for a chance to gamble and hope to get it eventually.

1500 ogrines for a 700 ogrines colours change that i don't even want or need. What kind of scam is this? How can a kwismas pet box even contain non pet items?

I bought 50 boxes in batches of 10. Here are the results for the 5 repetitions (order of appearance):
common: 40% 30% 70% 70% 90%
uncommon: 50% 60% 30% 30% 10%
rare: 10% 10% 0% 0% 0%
epic: 0% 0% 0% 0% 0%
legendary: 0% 0% 0% 0% 0%

Maybe worth noting that the first 2 were from my oldest account, while the last 3 were from my newest account. Sub is auto-consumed (added to your running subscription). Pets (pet skins) become exchangeable after 1 year.

What do we learn from this?
Chance of getting a common item: 60% with a variance of 6%
Change of getting an uncommon item: 36% with a variance of 3.8%
Chance of getting a rare item: 4% with a variance of 0.3%
Chance of getting an epic item: unlikely
Chance of jackpot: unlikely

Why does ankama not communicate the chance of getting an item? Is it possible that it is not the same for everyone? Is it because it's extremely low?

Was it worth it? 50 boxes = 75 euro (or ~50mk on echo through kamas exchange). "Won" 6 bitter shigherax (~550kk each), 20 potions (~850kk each), 4x4 sub days (useless because can't resell or even choose when to use them). 18 present pets, 2 nice pets. All pets are exchangeable in 1 year. Since prez pet are actually quite easy to get, I estimate that their price will be around at 1.25-1.75mk next year. Rare pets require more risk-taking to acquire and I can see that there would be people willing to buy them. However, there exist so many nice ceremonial pets right now, so I would imagine people would be willing to pay around 3-5mk. So, in total I got a value of around 55.3mk on an investment of 50mk. That is if I remember to sell the pets as soon as I can (in 1 year), because as time passes the price descends. It surely is not a good investment, since I burned money for a 10% turnover in 1 year (or for loses, if I forget).

Hope this answers some of your questions and relates to your concerns.

Without lootbox mechanics, you could have bought all of that for $10.

It was worth it for me. I was very happy about the content of the 10 boxes.

* 2 potions
* 1 Aispik
* 6 Prez pets
* 1 (epic) coulourable prez pet

Thank you Ankama!

is there a link to the mystery box page in the shops that ACTUALLY works. Googling "Kwismas Pet Mystery Box" ends up giving a link that doesnt work and changes the words in the link to french "mystery-box-familiers-nowel".

Deleting my comment again? Third time is the charm!

DO NOT BUY THIS BOX - IT'S A SCAM
In 10 of these so called 'MYSTERY PET BOX', I've got only 2 - TWO PETS.
You can clearly see that it is a scam, when it costs 1.500 ogrines but you can get prizes that are worth less than HALF its price.
In most games that have this sort of gambling, the minimum prize is ALWAYS the same value of the box.
DO NOT BUY THIS SCAM MYSTERY BOX!

How's that a scam?
Noone promised you more than 2 pets - Noone promised you a pet at all. 

You could've gotten 9Shigekax's - and it'd still have been a fair game. 
It's not like anyone forced you to buy anything.

Dont blame Ankama for your poor decision making - that's all on youbiggrin

Countries all over the world has already deemed loot box to be harmful to young players.
Belgium has already made them illegal, more country will follow.

A lot of games have already removed gambling loot box in their title.

That is like telling a child not to blame the casino if they lose all their money while gambling. Are you even aware of the loot box controversy? It is getting the attention of the world government because it is a psychological manipulation of game company to milk their young compulsive costumers.

Don't blame the players who were psychologically manipulated by a slot machine that was disguised as a gift box.

Don't try to put reason in the mind of ones with a lot of money to burn and that don't care about others. He is white knighting Ankama, he will continue to protect them. 

You are completely right in everything you said. This is still not considered legally gambling, but it is purely gambling. +1
