Nexus Crystal offer confusion

HzoriHzori Posts: 233




The Nexus crystal offer is valued at 337, 500 Doubloons and contains an extra 2,500 6* shards.

If you buy 30 of the 5 star bundles (225,000) Doubloons as well as 5 of the 6 star bundles (37,500) Doubloons that costs 262,500 Doubloons which is a lot less than 337,500. Am I missing something here?

Apart from the Doubloons difference, you get 3 five stars as opposed to 1.
That's the same as opening a Nexus crystal and getting all of the champions.

    most are chasing the 6* shards and the 5* component is secondary? it's the same with the black cyber frimonday deals.

    think of nexus crystals like dippin dots - an overpriced novelty that actually isn't that great and definitely not worth it

    With the Nexus crystal you get the choice of 3 different champions to choose from. With the 30K 5* shards you'd get with bundle 1 you could get 3 of the same champion theoretically which would really suck if they were all Groot or Iron Patriot. If I wasn't such a cheapskate I would get the Odin bundle and get the nexus and 6* crystals, but I find better value in only spending $30 and buying the second bundle for 5K 6* shards so I can open my next 6* crystal. It sucks because I would have a chance to choose a Doctor Doom in a Nexus crystal.

    does someone here actually like dippin dots? or is my analogy just trash

    I think your right about the nexus crystals (and the dippin dots), but I see why some people like nexus cystals, its nice to have a choice sometimes (even if the overall value is worse).

    Think that's the point he was making. Buying en bulk the other offers added up to same 6* shards amount. (plus you'd get about 1.5x T5Basic) for cheaper cost.

    So even if you were looking at wanting the Nexus for a 5*, the bulk way is also still better too.

    by a logical standpoint, the nexus crystal is a terrible value. Would you rather open 3 5 star groots or 1 nexus with groot, cyclops, and magneto? 3 trash 5 stars is better than one.

    Exactly, for 70,000 less Doubloons, you’re getting the same items and more. The Nexus crystal in my view is the equivalent of opening three 5 star crystals but only selecting one champ whereas if you buy the other bundles I posted above, you are still opening three 5 star crystals except you get to keep all 3 champions of course.

    Technically it’s possible to get 3 groots in a nexus, you do t always get 3 different champs to choose from.

    I'm just after 6* shards and i know higher offers with 5* can give dupe but excluding that my math tells me to just bulk buy bundle 2 after getting the 2 of the medium unit deals
