A sign of things to come? It appears that you still have to purchase the loot box to get a "new" previewed box but at least you know what you're getting. I highly doubt Cryptic would ever do this but it's encouraging nonetheless.

Interesting, thanks for sharing! Ironically this doesn't really change anything, because now you have to buy one pack to get a look at the next (random) one. It's really amazing how devs shoot themselves in the foot over this bullshit when they can pretty much achieve the same with a much better perception (probably).

not sure how the better solution isn't to guarantee that the prizes will exceed in value the cost of a key+lockbox cost. Would be any different than:
