Grab your harpoon and diving suit and help Nanook Rb catch the uncatchable swerflin that’s been terrorizing Clint City’s beaches! What? You don't know what a swerflin is? Well neither does Nanook.

In fact she’s never seen one but her cousin swears it exists, so hurry up!

The event starts at 2PM and ends on Thursday at 8PM.

to compare if you can get more if you play LW or you buy packs?

if so, then math is simple:

2 credits LW= 1 nanook rb = 2 000 000 clintz
40 credits Packs= 1 elite nb pack = let's say 50 000 clintz

1 LW credit / 1 Packs credit = (2 000 000 * 40) / (2* 50 000) = 800

So, you have to win just 1 LW from 800 tries to get more than if you spent all these credits for packs.

These calculations are without looking at any other prizes you get if you don't finish with perfect, so generally it is 1/1000 or even more.

Should've done the math..
I guess I'm just unlucky then

Also may I point out you did your math in a week where all of the 4 recent releases had potential.
I've more then once had packs worth just over 1000 so should I go with chance or guaranteed? LW is guaranteed because I have faith in myself that I could reach a minimum of 4-5 wins, where as packs don't rely anything on my skill or ability and as your math suggests I'm very unlucky..

Also how do you know that % of time you will get a R or U? Cos in a 20 cred pack I hardly ever get a rare..So 50% (to me) seems like a bit of a stretch

Kaiser:

Look at a pack pull thread. Pretty much everyone agrees the rates are equal. There are times I've opened 5 in a row with rares, and others where I've gone 5 without them. The danger in saying what you did is that your sample size is too small - only 3. Increase sample size and you'll find the rates everyone claims are there.

By my recent sample size, I bought 1 pack and got Matriochka from a 20 Cred pack. I guess she's in 100% of packs. 3 seems like it should be nice, but we've all has bad runs, and UR pack pulls are no exception.

Also, saying it doesn't count because all 4 are good makes no sense. I am using pack data from the week you are claiming it's not worth it. Not a hypothetical pack week. Regardless, even removing 2 more, do you really think it's going to cover the entire 49% difference? I'll give you maybe 5%, but that's still a hefty bit to be off.

As for LW - I still want UR to change it so I can simultaneously choose my cards at the same time, eliminating the need to switch my intended Leader halfway through and giving me a worse deck than I otherwise could've built.
