Very bad luck the past two days. No diamonds, hardly any boxes opened at all yesterday, and today I got most of the cash back that I had spent trying, and more useless loot today..

Hang on, a box is ready.

Well, diamond number 6 just dropped as I was writing this. Still awful bad luck to go on a two day drought while some people can get 9 in a single day.

Finally got my 10th diamond today. For the past 2 days, i've been recieving cashs, swat police van and respect points.
It's not worth to spend gold bars on lockbox event base on the random items it give.

I will consider myself lucky to get the Golden M4A1 if I do get diamond #7. If 1 diamond in two days is what I am supposed to expect now, it might be possible after all. Possible =/= likely.

Got number 7 early yesterday afternoon. None since. Attempted or opened about 20 boxes since.

Just opened another - stone hammer - once again no diamond

I was raking in the loot for the first 3 days then it stopped all together in the last 36 hours I have had virtually all fails.

I've been at 7 for almost 3 days, Diamonds are becoming very difficult to come by I've started spending gold just to garantee the unlock but still no luck. I refuse to drop more than a 20$ bill on this.

This lockbox event has been retarded, I have been opening 10-15 boxes a day with no diamonds for 2 days. Most boxes don't open and when they do it's a little cash or +1 mafia. I think I'll pass on the next funzio "event" if there is one. This must be a gold selling event??

I see where you're coming from, but in your opinion, is using gold to gaurantee an opened lock box increasing your chances of receiving a diamond, as opposed to just spending the cash and hoping for an opened box and a diamond? Basically, let's just say hypothetically that every time u spent cash to try to open a lockbox that it opened. Do you think spending gold to gaurantee an open is increasing your chances of receiving a diamond as opposed to just using the cash to open?

Nicely done, I'm hoping to get mine in the wee hours of the morning. I'm optimistic but ready to fail.

Well considering I've been opening them at a 30% sucess rate I think it is helping. Plus I get to pick the times when lockboxes open if you subscribe to that theory.

I think gold is increasing my chances by giving me a 100% sucess rate to open

I try to be regular as I can on the LB, Just to be sure I have a fair chance. Was on a 2 day dry spell for the diamonds.

I cyrrently have a grand total of 2 diamonds. So unless I am prepared to spend $$$ on gold, I don't think I will be able to get a diamond sig with just 2 days left to go.

I think we have almost as many lockbox threads filled with anecdotal evidence as we have lockboxes in the game.

We need more diamonds and lockboxes threads. Very entertaining reading.

And thanks to all of you who bought extra gold for the fund-raising event.

You people are the ones supporting the game so that cheapskates like me can play for free.

I coughed up for 650 Gold, got my 10 diamonds (already had 7), and am now happily completing Thug Life goals with an extra 1R on every fight.

For my Gold I got the diamonds required, with enough left over to buy about 8 crates of goodies, including a lovely Gold Chain Gun.

Only money I've spent, but what the hell, the investment is worthwhile because Funzio have given me a great game to play, so why should I expect that for free.

Frankly, for all the talk on here of economies and ROI, maybe someone should work out the ROI of putting the iPhone down for a few days, doing something worthwhile that generates some real life money, and then spending just a little piece of that money on Gold.

What is your time and frustration worth? Mine was easily worth 650 Gold. Because I bet I'm happier than anyone sitting on 9 diamonds with only an hourly dose of bitter disappointment to look forward to ;)

Best of all, I can still open Crates, and i don't give a sh!t about 'better luck next time', it's completely painless now, plus I can't get any more diamonds, so my chances of getting 500R are higher, and I'm still low enough level that anything that drops is adding to my Att/Def stats ;)

That said, kudos to anyone that gets to 10 diamonds without any Gold expense, you will have deserved it - as long as you can avoid having a stress-related heart attack or a complete mental breakdown before D 10 drops!
