**WE ARE NO LONGER Temporarily Reverting Tier 1 War Ban System**

After further discussion, the game team has made the decision not make adjustements to the ban system.
The previously proposed fix would have resolved the issue for Summoners who are on the cusp of T1/T2 play, and negatively impacted Alliances more securely in T1. Instead, we recommend that cusp Alliances switch to Manual Placement to your members to place the allotted 5 Ban Champions limit there.

Apologies for the back and forth, and for any confusion.

How do you open your crystals?

Emilia90Emilia90 Posts: 2,255 ★★★★★
I’ve seen this topic before and with 8.4 packing a lot of great rewards, I thought it’d be interesting to see how people approach this

As a disclaimer, I’m well aware that spinning/popping and whatever ritual that comes with it has no influence on anything, this is just a post for fun (and for the more funny crystal superstitions)

I do this fun little game where I pop a crystal, cover the result up, and go through each class to see what I got. Idk why but hey, it adds more suspense

    Some strange ritual

    I have a mix of spins and pops as well as a certain number of times I back out/enter the crystal screen. The back outs/enters have to do with certain lucky numbers for me.

    Completely ridiculous of course but I swear by it. Well maybe except for my titan pulls today.

    I do the same sometimes! I also have superstitions regarding what pfp I’m using. Sometimes I switch it before a crystal opening and get super lucky and I’m fully convinced that it was because of the new pfp even though rng doesn’t work that way lol

    Some strange ritual

    Haven't spun a single crystal since Banquet 2022 lol I'd rather not look at how it rolls over from an Onslaught to a Thing, that should be considered a form of masochism.

    Yeah that’s completely fair. I think I’ll continue to pop and play my little guessing game tomorrow and I better see some great champs waiting in my roster or I’ll cry lmao

    Some strange ritual
    1. note your wanted and unwanted champs
    2. press record
    3. spin crystal and cover the entire screen. listen for audio cues to see if it's a new champ or a duplicate
    4. exit menu without looking at it
    5. if it's a new champ, go to your roster, filter by unowned champs and search class by class starting with the least wanted class to the most. load up auntmai for the 7* champ list and one by one unhide the champs with your fingers as you move left to right. you'll know who it was if they're not there.
    6. if it's a duplicate, same process as #5 except you click on owned champs.

    it drags it out and it's fun.

    I seldom pop crystals.. I usually do something similar to pep method, repeat until crystal appears from bottom right corner (you will clearly notice the crystal speed is slower too).

    So far, my 7% rng % is pretty good...
    around 30x 7* from combined paragon basic/feature crystals.

    Theory time…

    The whole seeing better champs next to your result could be just Kabam teasing.

    They’re not allowed to alter your prize result by law.

    But the computer does know what you’ve got as soon you press the stop button.

    I can’t think of there being a law for them altering the results you didn’t get afterwards, by afterwards… I mean while it’s still rolling over to show you your result.

    Basically, you aren’t getting robbed at all when it rolls over a 7 star onslaught.

    Your just being showed the best thing you could have got, in a teasing kinda way.

    I spin it and click right when its on the reel like a quick spin. I feel like it gives me better luck.

    I just give my mobile to my brother and when the crystal pops I ask for the class of champ, is the champ good or the looks of it to guess, don't really care what I pull, playing with fun, opening with fun 😆

    It's the only time I raise the volume in the game. Because I need to spin 6 times till when the crystal do a specific sound to get a better 5 stars or 7 times to get a better 6 stars...

    Today I'd pulled Onslaught 5*

    Maybe just a coincidence ,but past pulls I got many new champions...

    I pop any crystals that aren't champion ones, ones with champs, I spin. Unless it's a 2* crystal from the sunday arena and then I just pop them cuz I know I'm not getting anyone new.

    The most recent one I did was Pep3000 method, but with a twist.
    First two prowler early access crystals looked awful and prowler was nowhere to be seen. So, I backed out, went in again, spun it and got him 7* of the 3rd Crystal 😍
    Then, next day, had a basic 7* to open. Peped it again, but not out in like with prowler, spun it, and got my most desirable dupe for the past year, 7* Domingo 😎
    I’m willing to bet my arm and leg that my luck is going to be total shite now as I have used my Kabam blessing, but I guess it’s a game of hit and miss.
    Whatever works, works. If it works of course 😅

    I hit the pop button, then throw it out of a window right after that, go down praying that I didn’t destroy my phone, and then look at what I got

    I just spin or pop depending on my mood. Regardless of the method I cover the screen and check if it's a new Champion or duplicate then actually see who I got.

    End of the year I did this with greater banquet, but with my daughter.

    She tried one time, in the end I just asked how many stars she pulled

    "And she counting 6...no 7 stars"

    This is the history of my only 7 stars, Moondragon 😍

    I pop everything except 7 stars and sometimes 6 star featured.

    I usually save a couple 7 stars and featured and let my daughter spin them.

    If it's a crystal that I bought, I put it in the spinner. I get buyer's remorse either way, but the added bit of effort makes the result go down a bit easier. Popping a pre-release bundle of 12 and getting nothing in an instant feels worse than spinning out a few and getting nothing. Don't know why.
