As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Drop Rate Information in The Contest

Hey Summoners,

We’ve been working hard on a way to give you more insight into our drop rates, and to give you more information so that you can make educated decisions when purchasing items like Crystals.

Many of you are aware that there have been some new guidelines introduced for games like ours to encourage us to be more transparent with our players. This is something that we have been discussing for some time now, as many of you have asked for this information in the past. We took our time to ensure that we are displaying the information within the game in the appropriate and most effective manner.

We’re happy to let you all know that this information will be coming your way when we launch our version 17.1.5 Update on March 12th!

When you update to v17.1.5 and visit any in game store where you can purchase a crystal, you will see the drop rates displayed for Crystals purchased in the following stores or areas of the game:
- Glory and Loyalty Stores
- Crystal Vault
- Special event-driven stores (e.g. Valor Store)
- Daily Cards
- Crystals purchased with real money or Units (within the stores or as special promotions)

When looking at these crystals, you will find a brand new Information Icon. When you tap this Icon, you’ll see a pop-up that includes the drop rates for the items within the crystal, displayed as a percentage chance.


The rates you see are set in the back-end and directly display the drop rates of the crystal. This means that there is no room for human error and you are getting the most accurate information. We strongly believe in keeping Marvel Contest of Champions fair for all of our players, and do not, nor have we ever, create specific drop rates for individuals.

Drop rates indicate the likelihood that you will receive the specified item. Here’s a couple of quick examples to help explain how drop rates work:
- If you have a coin, the likelihood of tossing this coin and getting heads vs. tails is 50%. Each time that you toss the coin is independent of the previous coin toss and the likelihood of getting heads vs. tails doesn’t change because you tried again. If you toss this coin 10 times, it is possible that it may turn up heads every time, just once, twice, three times, etc. Each coin toss is independent and not affected by the previous coin toss.
- In relation to the game, if you buy a Premium Hero Crystal, and the drop rate for a 4-Star Champion is 2%, this doesn’t mean that if you buy 100 Premium Hero Crystals you’re guaranteed to receive a 4-Star Champion two times. This means that you have a 2% chance to get a 4-Star Champion each time you open that Crystal. If you purchase one Premium Hero Crystal, you could receive a 4-Star Champion, or you could purchase multiple Premium Hero Crystals and not receive any 4-Star Champion.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we worked to bring you all this information. Sometimes, things will take some time for us to investigate, research, respond to, and be able to take action on. In this instance, it took us a little while to update our in-game menus to support this new level of information. We're happy to bring it to you all now!

Our mission is to continue to give you updates on Marvel Contest of Champions, and continue to push the needle on how transparent we can be, and how much information that we can share with you all.
