I got clarification on exactly how the changing drop rates will work based on questions we got in the thread.
If I have Crates before 5.2, will their drop rates adjust after the Update comes out?
They will not change with the Update.
After 5.2, is the drop rate determined when you get the Crate or when you open it?
The drop rate is determined when you acquire the Crate, what is in the Crate is determined when you open it. The Crate you got at Rank 1, will always Rank 1 drop rates, but you can still change Discipline before opening it to adjust the contents appropriately.
In short, the system is built in a way that we want you to open the crates as you get them, there is no gameplay benefit to holding them.
