When to start opening 5 star featured

DonnymeijDonnymeij Posts: 393 ★★
Hi all, was just wondering what you thought would be a good moment to start opening featured crystals instead of basics.
I have 32 unique 5 star Champs right now. Arena is not a focus for me. Just something to do for a couple of units.
I can get between 15 to 20k shards a month with regular play.
Would it be wise for me to move on to the featured crystals instead of basics?
My current top 5* Champs are corvus, ghost, blade, venom, red hulk (duped), iceman. And I can make full synergie teams for Everyone with my 4*s.

    This is also what I need to know...

    There's no general point at which one option is distinctly better or wiser than the other imo.

    Your chances of pulling one certain champ from a featured crystal is higher than from a basic. But, depending on your situation, the likelihood of pulling someone you absolutely don't want could be more interesting.

    One way to work this out is to use some kind of rating system. You could categorize the champs in both pools into something like "hell yes" "wouldn't mind" and "I don't want to live anymore" and then calculate your odds for both the featured and the basic pool.

    You don't have enough 5* champs or earn enough shards to start going for features IMO. Those crystals are basically for those with a big enough roster and earn enough shards that losing 5k on a 5th Cyclops dupe won't siewer their progress. There are so many good 5* champs that you don't have so going basic is the way to go.

    Basically the old adage of, if you have to ask if you're ready then you aren't yet, applies.

    In addition to that and to grap onto the last comment, making this decision depending on solely the size of your 5* roster might work in some cases and yes, generally basics are better for your roster growths.

    But that's leaving out all the other important nuances. The quality of your current roster and your state of progression might be more important factors.

    If you ask this community which crystal to get, with currently 6 5* champs, most will tell you to get the basic. But if the champs you have are all absolutely awesome, in other words if you're already set for most possible encounters to come for you in your current state of progression, and you don't play arena much, then there isn't any reason to not go for the featured, IF your individual odds for either getting something you want or something you'd hate appeal to you.

    One of the main things to consider is whether you "need" or whether you "want", though.

    @TomBrady12 & @UmbertoDelRio thank you both for your reply.
    I also looked at the featured and there is only 1 champs I REALLY want.
    And that is Ghostrider for synergies. The chances are pretty slim I`m getting him either way.
    So I`ll be going for the basic.
    Again, thnx.
