WHAT SHOULD BE THE MINIMUM RANK???????????
i am First Sergeant.....
The reason gold boxes don't drop so much for low ranks is because their stuff is way cheaper. For instance, if you catch gold at 1st Sergeant, then you are 1/11 of the way to getting smoky m1
However, if you catch gold at commander (second to last rank), then you are 1/276 to getting firebird m3. So even though golds drop more at high ranks, high ranks have to catch way more golds.
There is no minimum rank for golds. There is just a higher chance the higher ranks you play with.
If you want to catch golds, my advice would be heading to the highest ranked polygon cp you can find. Lots of golds drop in polygon cp and higher ranks= more crystals in battle fund= more chance for a gold.
Also, my favorite hull for gold hunting is titan (though dictator is awesome too).
It's simple at low ranks the crystal fund grows way slower than higher ranks, I heard than gold chances increase according to the battle fund. I do not know if it's true.
Guys, this is why the gold box very very rarely drops on low ranked accounts. Because I saw it the v-log, like when you destroy a legend, it gives about 10 crystals to the battle fund. So if you destroy a Private, it adds around 1- 1.5 crystals (I think) to the battle fund. So if you destroy say a Sergant, it adds around 2 crystals. So the higher the ranks, the higher the gold box posibilites.
About 5 days ago, I was playing on a First Sergant account, and there was a double gold box! I did not take 1. Why was there a double gold box? Because I think they made the battle fund x2 and about there it was a 1 in 5000 chance of a gold box drop and I was playing with up to W.O.2. Hope it helps!
