Does it seem odd that every pack you open is tracked?

SDS

Like knowing when, and how much value of a diamond to give someone??? Just a weird thing to track, but I guess the SDS shills will put any weird schemes past their masters. Maybe I'm overthinking it, whatever

SDS

I think it'd be weirder if a business wasn't tracking analytics on one of their primary money-making methods.

SDS

What's weird is that there are unregulated casinos in our video games.

But if you're gonna let them build a casino, don't be surprised when they track what casinos track.

SDS

Why is that weird to track?

If anything, it would be weirder and shadier if they didn't. Otherwise, they wouldn't have proof of their odds and could manipulate it without fear of it being checked since nothing is tracked.

This lol. Way too much money at play to not be tracking

SDS

Probably would be weirder if you could see what they are tracking behind the curtain.

I do agree with this 100%, which actually is why I say people would be fools to NOT think SDS had their hands on the diamonds/value being rewarded in packs, it's not THAT random, which is another reason why it's tracked

I think it’s a fair argument to have about packs being equated to gambling. And whether it’s appropriate/ethical to have random packs in a game video game where you can pay real money.

But, having the users be able to track results is only a positive. Now, we can see as a community whether or not we are getting close to the expected odds. Transparency, in this respect, is a good thing.

The tracking is more for them than us, they could care less about customer experience while they sit on their high horses. You see they stopped responding to us peasants

SDS

Every single pitch and swing is tracked, heck every bullet fired in a shooter is tracked so this is the least surprising.

Game tracking is totally different than what I'm talking about

SDS

Wait they track it? So this mean LS if they want they can give you all the diamonds one by one. Like if you have all diamond except trout they would give you trout. That would be a benefit if it lol. But they aren’t that nice. Am I onto somthing?

Yeah sorry. When I am on my phone I never spell check. And I’m a bad typer. I just speed through it. Sorry lol.

Is it odd that every buy/sell order is tracked?
Is it odd that every PostGame/XP/Program reward is tracked?
Is it odd that all Conquest Wins and Losses are tracked?
Is it odd that every at bat is tracked?
Is it odd that XP level is tracked?

Packs are different from all game tracking, of course game stats are tracked for the purpose of grinding and leveling up. But what is the purpose of tracking what are supposed to be random pack contents?

SDS

Probably so when someone claims "I packed Trout but then I went to my Inventory and he wasn't there so I demand another one.", they can look up the pack logs and deduce that you're full of horse hockey.

SDS

Can we see where packs are tracked?

SDS

I think it’s much weirder than Ramone asks for tasteful nudes of everyone before each RS game.

..... wait, he does do that for everyone, right?

To prove that they are indeed random if it came to that, to determine whether the code is working correctly if a change is made, to justify making changes to the odds, and most definitely the reason that somebody else said about people making false claims.

Edit: game stats also tracked for purpose of improving and balancing the game.
