This time it seems they brought back the box for Christmas since the black friday deals weren't as great as last year... ended up missing it but i did get some data from the last event in the late summer after risa.
SOB did a youtube about how to increase the chances of getting good lockbox drops and apparently the nix box DOES work on the same system. Took those suggestions and tried it out: middle of the night in a sector away from the populated ones on the bridge of a paid ship (in my case the nx refit) ... had 216 boxes to open and within 112 boxes got my first ultra rare token :-)
Two more tips i can pass on is to WAIT to open any boxes until a few weeks after the event ends when all the other impatient players blow through their chances (possibly increasing the callback quality rate)... you should also try to keep a consistent pace on the rate of clicking to open the boxes since the chance changes every half second... just like playing a drum roll.
It'll probably take me till next Christmas to get enough dill for 500 more boxes with the frequency that i play nowadays to get more solid confirmation of data... but anyways here's that video: jump to 5:33 for the time and location info/demo
good stuff to know......thanks
