Obviously not a factor in anything whatsoever, just curious what other people do/think?

1. Same Chest Every Time
1a. Which One?
2. Different Chest Every Time At Random
3. Different Chest Every Time In A Cycle

Actually, how do you know it isn't? TH is gambling after all (not legal gambling but gambling nonetheless), so would it really be surprising if Jagex tried to rig it? If they do, you might wish to avoid that.

Now in case they do have something to rig it by e.g. something observing your choices to predict what you're going to pick in the future, you might want to use something like a PRNG to at least make it harder for them to predict your choices, if not completely impossible. > )

EDIT: Also there are certain promotions, e.g. clairvoyance, where you're revealed the rarity of the chests, so it'd be quite silly to ignore it.

Well sure I obviously don't ignore if I KNOW what is in the chest, but I'm just talking normally.

As to the whole "rigging" thing, it doesn't give any monetary benefit to Jagex to rig it, does it? There's no money actually coming out of their pockets to give away virtual prizes.

To be fair, you did say that it's "not a factor in anything", which kinda implies otherwise.

But yeah, sure, Jagex doesn't lose anything they already have by giving away virtual prizes on TH, but what they do lose is potential money from extra bought keys. That's what I meant: they could be rigging the prizes to give you more crap, in order to make you buy more keys to get what you want.
