Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

Has anyone else notice the drop rates on crystals have plummeted?

    I have been wondering if energy refills were removed from Arena crystals? I open at least 30 a week (low week) I can't remember the last time I got energy (or Pun).
    The units are pretty good for me, no complaints there.

    Did Kabam ever give a reason for removing the graphics when opening the crystal?

    I think kabam can 'dial up/down' the payout rates for ALL Crystals....

    - Any1 ever notice we get a lot more units from arena crystals after kabam nerfs something,
    But less (practically zero units) from arena crystals, when kabam considers us content with all the bugs?

    What happened to "drop rates have to be posted because of law in China"?

    China can pass any law they want, but it is only enforceable upon entities actually in China. If Kabam has no such part of their business and the only way for people in China to play the game is to connect to servers outside of China, the only thing China can do to attempt to enforce that law is to bar Chinese citizens from downloading the app or block all traffic going to the game servers. I'm honestly not sure if this law means anything to any MMO operator that doesn't actually explicitly operate within China itself (or work with a partner that does).

    This is a fact that many armchair lawyers seem to have been overlooking.

    Just decided to pop 10 PHCs. I was surprised.


  • Hey OP,

    We have not made any changes to drop rates in quite some time (since before my time here, as far as I know). But these guys are all correct, it sounds like you had a long string of some amazing luck with PHCs in the past. I can't say I'm not jealous.

    We're going to close this thread down now, because there is no more to add, and conspiracy theories are not allowed on the forums.
