    The main issue:
    You just finished crafting your uber cubelet, costing you 8000 (or 12 500 if you are stone rank) loot points or 16-25 cubelets.
    You end up getting a duplicate and that turns into 3500 loot points if you are lucky.
    So you just lost 4500-9000 loot points and you still don't have the vanity item you want.
    You don't see where this is fun? Here's a way to make it fun ;)

    Here's my solution:

    Vanity merchant / shop. This could be a merchant or another gui.
    Every 2nd weekend it pops up and offers a selection of random different items, a few extra items you don't yet have in your collection and maybe a way to introduce a new vanity item/set/gadget into the game.
    Items would be priced depending on rarity and the cubelet they come from ranging from 800 loot points (cubelet, common) to 24 000 loot points (uber, mystical).

    For reference, I haven't spent any loot points since the loot points update came out so I made about 54 000 loot points in the span of 20 months as an obsidian ranked player.
    This is taking inspiration from the warframe "Baro Ki Teer" traveling merchant / money sink and it works really nicely.
    For early players, the shop will appear to be expensive, but for the players that have been here longer and are already constantly getting duplicates, this is a breath of fresh air, since by opening tons of cubelets, you still know that eventually you'll be able to complete your collection and not have to suffer the 70-90% duplicate cubelet chance.

    It could also show you the amount of vanity items you own out of the amount currently obtainable so you don't keep getting duplicates.

    Also as you collect more vanity items, the chance of getting a duplicate should be capped at max 25% chance (you can modify the cap by removing owned items from the roll). This, because having a 99% chance of getting a duplicate is just not worth the effort.

    Another solution from the comments:

    I absolutely love this idea! Mainly because it’s thought in a way that favors all ranks! It is true that Uber Cubelet duplicates can be very disappointing. I hadn’t really put myself in the position of a stone tanker, weow.

    I agree with you, but try and use less sarcasm. It took me 2 minutes to figure out what the heck you were saying.

    It's kind of like a black market. I like the idea. I just wait a month for my monthly uber reward and always getting a dupilcate. Waited a month for nothing. But it would be really nice to have such a thing in the lobby. I really want the CubeCraft logo particles. Maybe there's a chance I can buy them now. :D

    I guess that’s an actual solution.The monthly obsidian rank ubers can be changed,so you can’t get duplicates since it’s once a month you get those.

    Same, I really want those too.

    This sounds like a monthly vanity event on which you can buy your favourite vanity item which you're just not getting because of the duplicates you get. I'd love to see this because I have some vanity items which I really want and just never get.

    This is an insanely good idea and would work pretty well although I feel that for an item that's supposedly worth £4.33 each (pack of 3 sells for £13 not on sale), they should just remove dupes from uber cubelets altogether. This is a fantastic solution, just feel like it shouldn't be needed in the first place.
