This is something I'd like to know myself! Did they change the odds since they maybe saw too many people getting the items too quickly? If so, that just seems wrong. I am 26 boxes and countless individual cards and virtual codes is the hole on series 1 and still have yet to unlock the mastercard trophy and window. I am one doodles card short and its making me crazy. I think if you buy that many packs of trading cards, you should be able to unlock the prizes. Frankly, I just don't understand how Ganz can expect us who spent a fortune on tc series 1 and didn't get the prizes to continue to spend on series 2 unless they've truly addressed the issue of making the items too hard to obtain. I bought one box of cards for series 2 after I read about cynalot and I am NOT purchasing any more until this issue is brought to light.

Along those lines, I don't understand why they can't add virtual codes that are more generous from series one when you open the cards you win on the wotm! Why can't they put a doodles card on when you win a pack? I have one tons of virtual packs and NO doodles cards. I was hoping they might make it easier to win that prize by offering more cards to make it easier for those of us who have 1-2 doodles left to open get it on the wotm instead of asking us to purchase more cards.

Sorry for the vent. I'm just fed up with Ganz and their TC expectations at this point. I've spent countless dollars and the least they could do is make it possible to unlock a virtual item that costs them nothing since the programming all already paid for.

Has anyone written them? Talk to them? It seems like if they take back their statement about putting a safeguard in place so you don't unlock duplicates, then they are taking back a promise they made to parents and their children to persuade us to purchase their products. That's definitely not cool, imo.

Thanks for the heads up!!

Thanks so much for the information. I knew I should have checked here first. I have opened 46 packs so far and unlocked the challenge cards prize. I have no paw level cards, need 1 card for the snapshots and 5 cards for deck cards ... I have 3 and 4 of some cards already. I don't understand why they want everyone to have to buy so many packs.

i haven't bc i'm paying careful attn to when we unlock the cards. the second that i get a duplicate in any of the "hard to get" sections (before unlocking its prize), i will be calling and then i'll be furious. (somewhere, i have a manager's phone number -- i'll be finding it.) i ONLY started series 2 bc of the creative director's comments on WI and bc Cynalot showed it was true. Since I bought what equates to over 11 boxes just to complete the binder for series 1, I had zero intentions of starting Series 2 without any adjustments.

anyway, somethings up bc several people are getting duplicates -- i just cannot call until i get one. what would i say, "Person A from WI is getting duplicates!" they would say, "well tell Person A to call us and we cannot discuss their account. have a nice day."

we have opened abt 1/3 of a box so not that many cards

Keep us updated RedBear. I will be anxious to hear if you get duplicates in the "hard to get" sections. I just ordered a Box of Series II, but I am hesitant to buy any more after reading the latest news.

Okay! Alright, we were actually 2/3 of the way through the box (I recounted). I opened the other 1/3 tonight.

Out of one box:

DECK: 76/85 (of course there are several duplicates as they said that there would be bc this is considered "easy")

CHALLENGE CARDS: 15/15. (no duplicates until i had all 15. I have not clicked to open the prize yet for fear that doing so will give me duplicates of the other hard to get sets. It still says "CLICK HERE TO UNLOCK!"

WTALE SHAPSHOTS: 7/8. (no duplicates. did not receive another card after completing the challenge cards)

AT PAW LEVEL: 2/8. (no duplicates. did receive one card after completing the challenge cards and it was not a duplicate, obviously.)

Since I got only one "hard to get" card after finishing the challenge cards, cannot say for sure it won't happen. I'd have to buy more cards to see. Not sure that I want to do that! Although -- I'm wondering if the key is NOT "unlocking" the prize.

and, yes, it's "I" bc son is snoring away!

Regardless, these odds are not good. No, no, no! TWO At Paw Levels in an entire box. That's 2 out of 180 cards or 1% chance of getting an At Paw Level card. That's messed up! BTW -- we got our first At Paw Level card within the first few packs. I didn't get the second one until the last pack. Reminds me of not getting the doodlez cards in an entire box or two or three. I do not have the time, patience or resources to buy another dozen boxes. I only bought these cards bc Cynalot (and a couple of others) unlocked the entire set after only 2 boxes. I feel so unhappy at Ganz. I should have more than 2 paw cards!

Oh and in case you were wondering, I've got more junk from the WShop than I know what to do with. Guess I should start another car room (4 items are from car theme.)

we bought 10 packs of series 2 and opened all before the warning. We got codes that gave us a free virtual pack of cards, 338 kc and just secret recipe foods for the other 6 codes. No furniture or posters for all 10 packs!!! I dont think that we will invest anymore in them.
