Default In the box break sections what % of people lie?

I have always wanted to ask this.

What does everyone think the % of people lie about there breaks

Example i busted one box and got this and this and that.

Was it really 3 or 4 boxes and you are just showing your best pulls from all the boxes and saying they came from 1

just curious

What purpose would someone have in combining 2 or 3 big hits from 4 or 5 boxes and pass it off as one box? I would say the percentages are low, very low.

I don't throw every break up there, but when I get a good box, or good packs, i'll throw that up. Mine aren't a compilation of boxes made to look like one box.

I just don't think people want to see common items getting pulled. I know i'd rather see some rarer items being pulled, especially by members

This is exactly as I see it.

I think the majority of people ONLY post their big hits. Every big pull comes from a single pack. You don't piece the big pulls together. So I think lots of people only talk about that one pack, box or case that the big pulls come from.

Of course people lie too. Sadly, that's the way of the world today. Or at least America.

I agree with the others. Don't know why someone would waste their time doing that. Big hits stand alone, and saying you got multile out of one box doesn't make that particular pull any greater, or more valuable.

Personally I prefer to see the good and bad so I can try and figure out what an even break might be. But I also agree with you the better boxes seem to make the threads more often than the bad ones.

I agree with Robert on this. It's nice to see the whole spectrum of breaks to figure out what a median box would be like. I've stayed away from products because I've seen consistently bad breaks (and jumped on board with others because of a high number of good breaks).
