If you buy out a whole slot of 10 tickets for a timeslot and have all the swag sent to one spot, then under the new plan you would still get 10 token packs PLUS we'd throw in 10 more random treasure draws.


That is my understanding. I still don't think 1 treasure equals 1 10pack. A 10pack gets you always 1 Rare, and 2 uncommons and 7 commons (or a 1% chance of 6 commons and 1UR). 1 Treasure Pull is 70+% of the time 1 uncommon or 1 Rare.

I would still rather have an additional 10-pack instead of an additional treasure pull.

But I'll echo what others mentioned - thank you for giving us any bonus at all to begin with.

I agree with what has been said. I too would prefer the 10 pack.

Reducing shipping time and costs is always a good thing (both to save money and being more responsible.)

I would go a step further and just have the extra draw tokens just mean extra draws in the treasure already being sent (no reason to ship treasure draw chips when draws are happening right there.)

I'm also in the camp of appreciating the gesture either way.

My personal preference though is extra treasure tokens. The chance of getting those bigger tokens is more fun for me even though it's probably a lower value.

Thanks for asking for our thoughts.

Thank you for asking our opinion Jeff. I can be happy either way with 10-pacs or Treasure Token(s). That being said it appears to me that early on folks like 10-packs then later they would move to Treasure Tokens.

Since Minotaur Hide and Dwarven Steel come from commons and MH is more in demand in the 2022 set, I can see the packs being more popular. However, the lure of the elusive UR, Legendary, Relic or Trade Good from a Treasure Pull is much like a Siren calling.

I will be happy with the fact that you are continuing the bonuses. I was wondering it it would continue or not going into 2022. The real bonus is that you bring so much enjoyment to so many people and have found a way to increase participation in these trying times.

Thank you once again for polling the community.

As I bring my kids into playing with me we will be shipping multi-swag to our address often. I will enjoy sorting and organizing tokens with them to make trade goods (OCD runs deep in our veins) if we get extra 10 packs... and they will enjoy pulling tokens (Who doesn't?) if we get treasure pulls. Either way is a win for us.
Spoooooooooooooooon!

If I had the specific option for my group to choose 1x 10 pack or 1x extra treasure draw per person for consolidating shipping, I think we would choose 1x extra 10 pack per person.

If I had the option for 1x 10 pack vs 2x extra treasure draws per person, I think we would go with the extra treasure draws.

I'm happy with any bonus. If you're asking my preference, I'd prefer a ten pack to a single treasure draw. If it were two treasure draws I'd prefer that. If you're swapping the treasure draws for the ten packs though I'd maybe bump up the amount of MH and DS in the treasure pool. I didn't have nearly enough of either despite the extra ten packs, and removing those would make the shortage even worse.

I collect the platinum-backed tokens, so my preference is for 10-packs. In addition, I find the treasure pulls to be lacking in low-level consumables, such as heals, scrolls and arrows/bolts/stones/slugs/etc.

With slight addition…Early on in cycle I’d prefer packs (Q1?), but at the end I’d prefer treasure (as above).

I think any bonus is a bonus.

I'm happy to have either.

If you want to know what I'd prefer, it's 1 10 pack over 1 treasure draw, for reaso s listed above.

I would like us to think about what has been said,
"It would reduce transmsuting for all -- and it would give us more token packs to sell."

Well, aside from the spelling, lets look at transmuting "FOR ALL"
...it is a cost at TDHQ to receive and count the transmutes
...it is a cost to ship them back
...it is a player cost to do all the counting (albeit very fun for a time)
...it is a player cost to ship (with tape and deal with USPS lines and the like...not fun)

"it would give us more token packs to sell"
...this volume of 10packs is probably literally 2x the packs they ordered because they didn't expect such a take at the bonus packs.

...in the end, if you are getting more than 100 pulls, you probably need a medium shipping box anyway...so that is a wash...
...if they handed out treasure tokens redeemable at live events along with even player pack tokens, they could reduce cost to a single envelope...it would also reduce our haul to live events...where we do the transmuting, trading, etc at the live event (BUT, who would want to wait that long to see what they got....I could barely wait for sunrise on Christmas morning....)

I am happy with anything, but I think if we dissect it, there is some win-win here if we chose the treasure...sounds like transmutes are adding tons of effort maybe we could help reduce with the treasure pull instead?
