This way could save time for players with massive amount of theme/mystery boxes.

    Oh no, this would be disastrous for me!  I have tons of different types of mystery boxes in inventory waiting for an upcoming special coop push for the November ML.  I like to be in control of what and when I open mystery boxes.  :o

    Could we just have the 1 second delay between opening mystery boxes removed???

    The delay does not build suspense or intrigue, its just annoying. 

    Normal (non theme boxes) can be opened in rapid pace if a player chooses to. The issue for me always has and always will be the programmed delay when opening "themed" boxes.

    We've already discussed the same with the team, and it is intentional that it will take a second due to some reasons :)

    I still don't think it is a good idea because folks who like control might accidentally open boxes that did not want to get opened.   :s

    This is a very good suggestion. Hopefully it can be implemented in the near future. :)

    Dear Moderators,

    Just in case my suggestion is too complex for BF developers and for BF server concern to implement it. you could adjust this into open by 100 (or open by <number of mystery/theme box> if more than 2 but less than 100) instead, it's fine for me. this could be save time too on my end.

    Thank you.

    I like this idea

    I know we all mis-click occasionally. Before we had the Gold Lock like many  I lost some by mistake, but then then the button was  right under the cursor
    This would be a button I would have to actively look for. Very difficult to accidentally click

    The only problem I see with this option is, if you happen to have that many mystery boxes or even 50 and you select to open them all at once, how do you know you will get credited with all the rewards that are in the boxes? It seems like a lot for the programmers to make sure all are put into your inventory. And if they're not, who would know since you probably won't see them all after they're opened?

    you could screenshot or make video on your current inventory before and after you open it then compare it. if that doesn't reflect, all you need to do is to send a support ticket or open a thread to report bug section, share your screenshots/video.

    IF it were implemented I would think you would get a choice, one at a time or all. I bit like the WoF. I or all 8.

    If you aren't confident of getting all your rewards than don't choose the ALL option

    @Kimmiecat (NL1) Hi there  :)


    I merged you with a similar suggestion

    It was forwarded for consideration

    I would like it myself ... 2 buttons, one open one, one open all

    If opening all would give an animation like in the Wheel of fortune, you could see all items passing in the screen.
    And maybe with an option to opt-out this animation, also like in the WoF

    Of course, if you click it, there's a confirmation message like this "... you're about to open 155555 green theme box, are you sure do you want to continue?....". if you click "Yes" button, it will continue. else, it will cancel.
    I much prefer this adaption of the suggestion ..... to be able to indicate the # of boxes we want to open, instead of just all or none. I would really like if it's the option we can type in the # we want to open, and an option to choose the max possible; something more like this:


    And definitely I love the verification popup, perhaps any time we're opening just the max, or maybe even every time we open more than 1?

    I agree with all the above
    I now have more than 1100 boxes/chests to open and I am really bord 
    espesially with boxes, they seem to open in slow motion and it takes forever
    please forward this idea cause its been more than a year it was suggested

    It was forwarded at the start of this thread ... October 2020

    I will happily again but as nothing has happened in a  year I suspect it is not something likely to be implemented
