Legendary Crystals Drop Rates

SearmenisSearmenis Posts: 552 ★★★
Hello.

I usually get five Legendary crystals to open all together, so I can get at least one 5* champ from them, since the drop rate is 20%. BUT, last time I did this, I only got (five) 4-star champions. I sent an email to kabam, they answered that the system is complicated, I asked again specifically to tell me if opening 5 crystals with the 20% percentage really works, a simple yes or no, another gereric answer and a link to the FAQ page.

Can anyone help me with this, anyone encountered a similar problem maybe? I m uncollected, and spending 5000 4* crystal shards every 10 days is not worth it if I can't get one 5* champ.

Thank you in advance,

Spyros

    That’s not how it works no where does it say that after 5 you get a guaranteed 5*
    It’s 20% per crystal
    20% for the first one
    20% for the last one
    Simple as that
    5k 4* shards for a legendary crystal is a stupidly bad offer

    Ok, maybe that's the case, I was thinking of that, but shouldn't they be more specific about it? Plus, it's not exactly a bad offer, I pay for the sigil to get them from the black market.

    Actually, they are specific about it. RNG doesn't work cumulatively. Meaning, 5 Crystals at 20% doesn't equal 100%. It's 20% chance per Crystal.

    In your case, odds of getting “at least” one 5* champ from 5 Legendary crystals (listed drop rates of 20% v 80%) is only 67.2% chance.
  • I've opened 3x yesterday, and got 3x 5-stars out of it.
    It happens sometimes

    That's pretty interesting, thank you!
