I'm SR 149 and I've had everything unlocked for awhile now. I usually only buy Gold packs to get XP boosts for arena and warzone. However, I only ever get uncommon and rare boosts. I have over 400k in REQ points. I bought 60 gold packs and didn't get a single ultra rare or legendary boost. My idea is that 343i create a new REQ pack. A REQ pack that gives guaranteed ultra rare and legendary reqs and boosts only. The road to SR 152 is hard with only uncommon and rare XP boosts. I want a Platinum REQ Pack, it could cost 20,000 REQ Points, or 50,000 REQ Points, I don't care. I'm just sick and tired of uncommon and rare XP boosts from gold packs.
No reason for them not to, this sounds like a great idea

I want this post trending. It needs a large following to make an impact. Agreed?

Yeah but don't say that, to a mod you sound like you plan on spamming

20k-25k sounds reasonable but 50k? No that's just way too expensive and not worth grinding for.

Agreed. If it was a 15,000 - 25,000 RP pack with no customization unlocks and no RP refund, but with a hefty number of Ultra-Rare/Legendary consumables and boosts (perhaps also a higher chance at Mythic drops), I could see a Platinum REQ Pack being a viable option for endgame players.

I proposed a platinum req pack awhile back that awarded only rare or even ultra rare and above only awhile back. But agree cause I HATE opening a gold pack and seeing stuff I could.have gotten in a silver and even a bronze pack.

Sounds like a good idea, but 343i could just switch a trigger and let us get more legendary boosts when we buy a gold pack. It is just a matter of probability, and they have set it up really, really low ...

Also, as you get a lot of uncommon and rare boosts, why don't you buy silver packs ? Because for one gold you can have two silvers, which means 2 times more boosts. Of course, if you have already a lot of boosts it is useless...

And finally, have you heard that since this weekend, the arena boosts give more XP and RP than before ? For exemple, the common XP boost went from 550 XP to 1100 XP. And a legendary RP boost give 1500 RP while it used to give 750 RP.
Look out for XP and RP Boosts
Yeah I just hit 145 and the grind is real. I think I have only had 5 legendary XP boosts since I started.

I was hoping the higher CSR the better chance to get higher XP boosts but alas this is not the case.

I think having a boost only req pack would be awesome for people who want it.

I can't think of a reason why ultra rare and legendary boosts are even rarer to get than mythic weapons.

Some people have over 1million REQ points, this pack will be for the elite, not casual players.

I know. I've done my homework.
Platinum REQ Pack 30,000 RP, Guaranteed Ultra Rare and Legendary REQS every time. That's all I want
I mean this would be nothing but helpful for endgame players I do think they should add this for 20,000
I would love that, I can't take Getting useless reqs

Is there a way that you guys could share this so more people can see it?
The recent Arena Boost bumps are a nice touch, but yeah a Platinum Req Pack would be helpful for those trying to get to SR152 without having to dedicate their lives to it. I know it would encourage me to play a few extra games per week, and for the everyday grinders, I do not think it will incur that great an advantage. 'Oh, nice extra Phaeton you've got there, enjoy our Plasma Pistols and Hydras...'

agreed, and many players never even use reqs.
I agree, only you cannot buy with real money.
Awhile back I said something about a boost only pack at rare and above. I think that kind of pack would be fine at 50k and give ten boosts. Of course it is a very endgame thing but I'm at 127 and for a long time I only played to get the arena emblems because the grind is so bad.
I think this would be a great idea. It could even help out newer players too if there was a way to guarantee the unlocking of top tier gear.

I'm only at 145 and even getting 10k out of a war zone game isn't great.
