Hidden rules

The presented card pairs follow certain rules:

  1. Equal type – Each pair is either Parts, Tech or Engines.
  2. Equal rarity – Each pair has the same rarity.
  3. Equal class – If the pair is Parts, they are of equal class.
  4. Exception – Engine cards can also appear together with Tech or Part cards. They break rule 1.

Description

The German description of the box reads "Enthält 2 gewöhnliche Karten!" (Contains 2 common cards!). This is wrong—the box does grant rare and legendary cards, like in all other language versions. It is probably a badly adapted copy of the description of the A8Box Compact Split Box Compact Split Box which grants only common cards.

Analysis

Statistics

Although a player can only obtain 2 cards from this box, all 4 offered cards were included in the sample, so the sample size for this box shows 2060 cards from 515 boxes, instead of the expected 1030 cards. This has the advantage that all possible outcomes are included so that the relative frequencies of cards are unbiased and independent from the player's choice.

As the hidden rules guarantee that the cards of each pair are of equal type and rarity, Early Tech and Initial Tech will always be presented togther. Combined with the the box's general high frequency of Tech cards, this makes it ideal for players looking for Early or Initial Tech: A player in need of Initial Tech cards can double their current relative frequency of 13.69 % to 27.38 % by always choosing them from the Tech pairs.
