This has happened to me a handful of times. For some it may just be annoying, but for someone like me who only gets 2-3 pulls per run, getting a common is infuriating. :angry:

Simple solution. Tell the treasure box volunteers:

"If someone ever pulls a common as a treasure token, let them draw again." :)

Before finding a solution, there has to be a consensus on what the problem is. Before that, that there even is a problem. I don't think there is one.

Any solution has to be carefully balanced. Too weak and it will have zero effect. Too much and you risk infuriating all the people who traded or sold their "worthless" URs only to find the change made them much more valuable.

There is no problem now but there will be one day IMO. I agree the solution should be carefully thought out, hence why we should discuss it before the problem exists.

But, what is that problem? That's my question. Changes without a clear purpose would only introduce uncertainty, and all the problems that entails.

Back in the old days it was pretty common to get commons. I recall the disappointment of my only token pull being a 1 GP token. :)

Please, I'm still trying to get rid of some of mine.

You know how hard it is to transmute a 2 Gp woody?

Sorry for jumping into this now....what if older outclassed UR tokens were marked as redeemable forexample. Say they could be traded in for treasure pulls in the current years dungeon and then either destroyed or put into the treasure pulls for that year. Players would have more options to pull out of print tokens and would give something for the old UR. I could see a problem with creating a flood of extra pulls and devaluing the pulls earned in the dungeon. Discussion worthy?
I've had treasure pulls where all I got was some common weapons and ammo. Even if you get 10 pulls for turning in a UR, you're not guaranteed anything decent. You could ultimately turn in a $60 UR (Think that's the cheapest I've seen) for a hand full of tokens that you might be lucky and get a single rare from it you already have.

You'd have way better luck playing plinko :P

But as they've said, the treasure box these days should not have commons. Its a mistake if it does.

I saw someone pull a common once. Everybody pointed at it and said 'That shouldn't be in there.' And the box warden said 'Yeah, pull another one.'

That's why you draw and show what you draw right away so they can verify you pulled the right amount and you got an acceptable draw. If they don't let you redraw, get a manager right away.
