Both of you are obviously possibly correct, from TD's standpoint though that group of friends or guild is 1 ticket purchaser. As far as multiple ticket purchases. So I imagine most (not all, just a majority) of VTD tickets get 20 or 21 treasure, but let's use 20 for rounding purposes. They also get a 10 pack of tokens if they only purchased 1 ticket and Number of tickets -1 number of extra 10 packs if they bought multiple tickets.
A Small Priority box will hold 175 tokens quite easily (I think someone once said the max is 195???). Survivor Pins and other stuff take up a bit of room. So let's say 150 tokens. 4 Runs could get you 80 pulls and 7 packs, which I contend would fit in 1 Small Priority box. It would take 5 runs or 5 tickets to move up in size (it might be six with zero pins but it would be close).

I admit I didn't look at image one on FB as closing as I did at image two. One has most of the Small Priorty boxes. 2 just has 4 bins full. I thought image one was similar. In image two I count 33 large boxes, while image 1 an unknown number. I am guessing it is more bin toward the front and back of the truck but large boxes could be possible.

I take back my original theory because of image 1.

EDIT Silly me also didn't consider 2 small boxes going to the same purchasers since that would be still be cheaper than sending 1 larger box.

Looks like someone has already received their V3a treasure as somone has already entered data into the google sheet. And got a pretty good pull. Barbarian Relic in 82 pulls.

80 pulls 7 packs, 4 survivor pins would not go in 1 small flat rate box. I'd expect the cut off is more around 60

I'd expect anything that requires more than 1 small box gets 1 medium box to avoid having shipping issues or duplicate boxes.

Just my $0.02

WHAT? I just put 150 tokens in a small box and 4 survior pins. It was a very tight fit, but it did all fit. How are you putting them in that you think the answer is 60 vs 150?

Anything that's likely to break in shipment is not something I'd expect to see them shipping.

4 or 5 sealed 20 packs of treasure would fit but it'd be tight to add pins and sealed 10 packs other things beyond that.

I'm sure they have an exact number they do it at but I've seen boxes separated at smaller numbers

Ohh after testing I doubt they are doing 150 and 4 pins either. I was more contending about your statement that it would not fit. It will fit. I imagine the number is closer to 120. 5 columns of tokens sealed fit in a small box fine. It is a question of how high you want you want to go with those tokens. 30 is possible (with 4 pins). 25 might be the more likely number or 125 tokens with room to wrap pins, though I think mine have mostly be loose, but I could be wrong about that.

Based on another thread, there are a lot fewer survivor pins going out this time, so that allows room for more tokens. :whistle:

This seems to be very true, but I also know a lot of folks also choose not to get a pin (probably after their first). Not certain how to calculate that....lol.

You also have to remember that they're not really shipping loose tokens. The 10 packs from runs and 20 stacks from pulls are wrapped. Then you get completion tokens loose in a bag alongside the survivor pins.

The smallest shipment I've had has been for four runs and the largest has been for eight. They've all come in medium flat rate boxes with small flat rate boxes stacked inside.

Yes sealed tokens take up less room than sealed tokens. Though my first set of tokens from V1a were not sealed 20's. I don't remember if 2Vb were or not. That your 4 runs would not fit in a small box supports Arcanist assertion. I would be curious if 3 would. Which would be 50 in packs and 60 in teasure which would be just under the 125 that I was saying.

Well. last night my status of "arrived in St. Louis" finally updated to the generic statement "in transit to final destination". It was still saying it was on-time for expected delivery on Friday. And then this morning it updated from on-time to arriving late.

I can only take some small comfort in that not a lot of people have gotten their tokens yet and holiday volume related delays are common. However, this is the exact same pattern the updates followed until five days later it was finally scanned in Houston. At the very least, this delay is going to cause all of the special gas to leak out reducing any hope of having a good pull. Although, if a lot of people are being delayed I suspect a conspiracy where the PO is hijacking a lot TD packages and siphoning the gas for their own use.
