Massdrop does lootcrates now?
Imo this is silly unless you are in the US, and even then, with amazon you could just buy the headphones, prime next day.
So I consider this a "oh i needed $20 iems, and a chance at better, thats cool".
Curious to see how many people join the drop, and to not be so negative, I guess this can be exciting (for some).

I believe he means it's embarrassing for him to just realize that they have been doing this for a long time now.

yeah that I didnt know is embarrassing even though I am on massdrop a lot. I am more irritated at this whole 'gambling' idea being implemented in video games (crates) pre-order bonuses and to some extent this bluebox. The seller is in a position to guarentee their profit, people like me obviously ignore and move on, but those who are inclined to take risks/gamble (it is their right afterall) may make a purchase they otherwise would have avoided. I guess in general those practices are anti-consumer, and massdrop is supposed to be pro-consumer. Im probably reading into this too much, I have gamblers in my family...

I used to buy keys in rocketleague until I realized that reddit/r/rocketleagueexchange exists and the long term cost of keys is more than just buying the rarer items I actually want. No it isn't fun like opening a crate, but it is a logical approach to the end product. If I had kids I would be very nervous about these game mechanics being introduced to them.
