Default "misery" box question

since the boxes cost cubits to unlock why do high lvl players get skill boosters exp boosters or other stuff they cant use?!
i mean if ur skills are maxed up whts the use of a skill boster?
also if ur 80+ or whtever lvl u max ur skills at what advantage do u get from xp boosters?

just curious if theres any logic in this im missing...i mean there are few other items in bsgo tht noone really uses but at least those have a logic for wht they could b used + u have the option not to buy tht item.
on "misery" boxes u have no choice wht randomly drops.

This game is based on gambling, everything you do in this game and what you get is based on roll, just like casino...even when you shooting your critical hits are like roulette.

They give you chance to win, but i guess we all know the house always wins. LOL

But you keep opening them sometimes you get lucky and get some goodies like cubit ammo, DIs and mining boosters.

I had more than 200 "misery" boxes and i drop them all, i even dont open them anymore,it's waste of cubits, if there was posibble in game i would give theam all to some low lvl player but.. this is BP and unfortunately not possible to do something like that...

What i wanna know is how ive opened a few hundred probly.. i have not once received a 3x mining bonus, a divine or anything like that far as i know its only a myth :/ seems like to me.. and i also have never had a 3x or a divine. not even in mail when i heard some ppl got them.. nothing zilch notta never get anything good at all truthfully i wonder why that is sometimes. ppl get a kick outa that when i say this tis true though

What you get out of the mystery boxes has more to do with how many you open at once, and less to do with how many you have opened total.

If you open 20 or more at a time your chance of getting something like a DI or 3x mining booster is greatly increased.

The same way your chances of getting something good from starbuck/bubbles is better when you do it multiple times, rather then just once or twice.

Can we get a Hot Key that locks boost On or Off added?

reply to above comment:
i doubt it has to do with quantity if i remember corect i did get some useful items even if i just opened 2 at once (per day, usually if i can spare some cubits or have bought a analysis kits reserve on sale also keep them and use 2 per day)

my point is not about luck or randomness but equality in useful drops for all newer and older players...u could say ignore higher lvl players they can spare few ks cubits but...
i was just wondering if its intentional ignoring (via the unusefull rewards) or an omission (due to no time to modify the box system) or by intent on side of BP. (cause its intended to have an extra "loss" when gambling "misery" boxes on higher lvl)
