Default Group Break vs. Break Your Own

Just curious as to whether people prefer to bust their own boxes/cases or participate in group breaks....

Does the answer change if you are trying to build PC vs. make money?

Do you prefer random or team specific?

I do both. But here is my reason for participating in Group Breaks:

My LCS may NOT get a full case of any given product. For example... a case of Prizm is 12 boxes. My LCS MIGHT request a case, but they MIGHT only get 6 boxes. So.... if there is ANY type of "case hit", it might be in the OTHER 6 boxes NOT shipped to my LCS. Or the distributor could have mixed a bunch of different cases and my LCS might get 12 boxes, but from all over the place. So again... there may or may not be a "case hit".

Or for some, they don't have a shop that sells HOBBY products near by. So why not jump in on a Group Break and hope for something good? I've seen guys with just one slot win the M*** (mega) card, and I've seen guys (myself included) get skunked.

Last consideration is that BO often gives a discounted case price for product broken for it's BO members. So while you have to suffer your over priced LCS really jabbing it to you for a popular product, a GB might actually be cheaper? That is of course that you recover a majority portion of however much you spent to join the break.

Plus they are just fun.
