Would someone please explain this?

How do i keep ending up with odd numbers of shards when every shard quantity i can think of is in multiples of 5??? I have a 3 star crystal at 1999 and a 4 star crystal at 1989 where does that flipping 1 odd shard that is missing come from???? It jappens so often and every time i mean to keep a closer eye on the numbers but.. ahhhhh!!!

    Chinese New Year giving out multiples of 8
    I think that spooky crystal gave out a weird number.

    Problem is, if you hit that non 5 or 0 number, itll always be off

    Yeah i got 1111 3 star shards from the spooky but it has driven me crazy i have been back to 0 and it still happens...i do remember the 8 from the new year but that was months ago...sure i have zeroed out all the shards at some point since then...(scratching my head quizzically)
  • You probably also sold champs

    Nope. Not a believer in selling my shard machines.

    If they are gone they can't dupe, can't drop supplies and shards...makes no sense to sell them cause over the long run you'll get more out of them than if you sell em...

    Early on i sold my 1 star ironman because i had gotten a two and i thought in a progression game that once i got to 2s the ones were obsolete and so on...but i got so little for him and it didn't give me enough to make a difference in raising his 2 star version so i decided never to sell a champ again. And then i discovered they aren't obsolete i use them for cat quests all the time.

    Been playing solo since the second season of AQ. Was Sargent at arms for my alliance (at one point ranked 35th) got tired of drama and my wife got tired of the drama and so....

    Got tired of the added responsibility as well. I don't always have time to play. Obviously others in the same situaltion chose to play and use piloting and things like that to compensate for time they needed to spend elsewhere (which i believe is a case by case violation! A guy should be able to go on a family vacation and not have to choose to cheat his family or 29 other guys because his squads are not playing)

    If you never play! And someone else is always playing for you...that is way different!

    Just to reiterate, the new year you got 8... but you would never zero it out unless you got a weird number again. So theoretically could last months.

    Yeah, the shards never lining up is a minor OCD trigger for me., but I've learned to just accept that as unavoidable.

    Even worse than that, I had 0 dungeon shard thingies, never had any interest in running them ever again... and then I got 360 from one of the recent special events... so now I will never be able to get rid of them.

    It also used to bother me to ever have any (1) or whatever at the top, but since AQ always gives me a (1) when it is active, I learned to ignore it. Especially once I realized holding onto crystals to avoid their contents expiring in the stash is better, now I'm currently at (779) at the top and don't bat an eye.

    However, if my units don't end in a 5 or a 0, such as after adjusting masteries, oh no, I will do a partial 3* arena milestone grind to get the particular combination of 6 or 7 milestones to correct it, because I ain't having that! :persevere:
