You do realize, they are never, ever going away, right? They are the primary income stream for the game, and only something that did remotely as well as them could possibly replace them.
Well, I hope Cryptic will be able to think up an alternative because more and more governments are viewing lockboxes as gambling that is accessible to children. I foresee more and more countries and states introducing some form of legislation to restrict such gaming mechanics or even outright banning such games in the coming years.
I'd be more interested in why parents are letting their children spend money on an MMO without supervision, because the problem has a way easier solution if parents pay attention to what their kids are doing there. Its called DON'T BUY THE MASTER KEY.
