Stop buying PSPs until you max all of you uncommons.

I literally cried tears of joy when looking at your guns.


Well it is a process.

I bought nothing but recruit packs until all my commons were maxed, Then I bought nothing but Veteran packs until all my uncommons were maxed. Only then did I start to buy Spectre packs.

You are going in reverse.

What is the logic behind this....

You know that in PSPs, you are guaranteed 2 rares, and the other slots can be rolled for anything (and if it's uncommon, you're damn sure getting an uncommon card, be it character or ammo), and it will not reroll it for a different rarity, it will give you something from that rarity.


Because there are only so many item slots in a pack. 1 PSP is 99k credits, you will only get a couple of rares and maybe an uncommon or 2. But for that same amount of credits you can open 5 veteran packs, and get many more items unlocked.

The more items you have unlocked the smaller the item pool becomes, which means that you have better chances of getting better items in better packs.

That way when I open a PSP i will often get 1 UR and 2 rares, or a Spectre pack were I get 3 rares instead of just one.

It's most likely that the RNG first gets a rarity then decides what card you get from that rarity.

I don't see any oddities in the manifests listed. There appears to be a decently random spread, with some of the "best" weapons at levels higher than the average, and some of the "best" weapons at levels lower than the average.

I was expecting something unique.

Are you guys hoping for a specific weapon that never comes (like everyone seems to, myself included)? If so, what weapon(s) do you have in mind that you think you're being shafted on?

Maxing out your uncommons does nothing to increase your chances of getting a rarer card, it just gives you a higher chance of getting a level III consumable or gear.

Yes, but correct me if I'm wrong: despite what you say admit your luck with packs, uncommons out of the pool don't really affect your rare drops. A PSP should still give you two, occasionally three rares, no matter what below it is unlocked. The uncommon slots don't just magically become rare slots.

Any time I talk about ME3 MP, it's most likely in terms of PLATINUM, not the inferior difficulties.
Best player here, guaranteed.

Out of curiosity, how is that supposed to help? Every time I buy a PSP, it doesn't stop me from getting 2 rares. I have a lot of Uncommon guns that aren't maxed out and a bunch of Rare guns that are. I also have most of my common characters not maxed out, but all my uncommon characters are and a number of my Rares. I've never gotten a sense that not having the common or uncommon items has affected my higher level unlocks.

Here's my Manifest for reference:
