[Suggestion] Replace Strongbox Daily Rewards with Keys

Since many of us have thousands of boxes and purchasing aurum is disabled, we should have a way to be able to open said boxes. I mean without a way to buy aurum for keys, they are useless.

The current rate of a few keys every day would make it impossible to open all of the boxes, but having them rewarded for each daily mission completed would be a great parting gift. Heck, why not just make all daily missions give out a key, and it will be up to chance whether we get a good item or not.

Tbh, I just want a damn quafe Mass Driver. I have like 50 quafe turrets, and at least one of each quafe vehicle in the game...yet not a single weapon. I don't even have any skills into vehicles.

I wish I could buy 100 keys to give myself a shot at one, but I only had 6k aurum left :/
And I'd rather just play the game instead, you know?

Edit: I'm saying that instead of a mission giving you a random amount of boxes, you would get a single key instead. I'm not implying that you would get 10 keys for a mission that would give you 10 strongboxes. Or just replace the random items you get from daily missions with a key instead.

10 keys per mission?

Assuming you get all keys everyday till the end of dust, you can open over 7k boxes. too much maybe?

Maybe 5 per mission.

...or they could just change the sale currency from 800 aur to 800 isk

problem solved, isk´s easy to get (and worthless nowdays)

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

Oh I meant more like 1 key instead of the boxes, like how certain missions give you a key.
I'll update the OP

Cmon CCP, i mean cmon! How about a parting gift, nothing fancy, maybe just one item.... Blueprint key!! Or 10k keys so we can enjoy ourselves on the last day of dust. 10k keys or bpo key. Ever heard of the make a wish foundation? Well, we are dying! Please let us enjoy dust before it is biomased. You have the power to do so. For the love of EVE, make the decision, grant us our last wish.

Sadly, I have to say, why would they? They probably aren't even reading this thread. They no longer care about what we want - we're a complete legacy to them. At best a liability. It would require someone to spend time (= money) to log into the system and change it. It also depends on how the coding works - if they've coded it to be an amount in AUR, they would have to change the coding to make it an amount in ISK instead. That takes development, perhaps not much, but it has to be coded, tested, then implemented. All of this costs money. They likely won't do that for a dead product no matter how much we ask for it.

I pitched this months ago, and I'm sad to say that it was swiftly dismissed. One would think this would be easy, it sounds logical, and some of us really wanted to implement this - and other Armageddon things for the last month - but internal politics and policies do not allow this. And then I'm not even talking about SONY.

Unbelievable! What would it matter for them to offer a few crumbs to the mercs in their last days? Politics and policies, indeed! So mindlessly petty, CCP!

Erm, no...

Petty would be if we could do this, but we wouldn't for no reason.

We don't do this because we can't.

Fair enough. WHY you can't do it is another question.

I'm not complaining for myself, I should add. I just think it's silly that there's no way to do this. What harm could it do? Personally, I don't care for myself, as I set myself goals to see how far I could get with skill training and game play by the end, and I'm happy to say I've managed quite well, so I'm happy.

I just wish the game was going to be around for more than just another two weeks so I could really explore everything that comes with maxed out RR, MAGSEC, CalAss and CalScout ck.0 skills. So far I'm just amazed how well that combination works, and I imagine I'd get much better with time, if we had the time....

I'll have to leave it to my imagination. ;)
