Gold Crystal Drop Rate

Mirage_TurtleMirage_Turtle Posts: 1,037 ★★★
Currently, the gold crystal shows the drop rate stats as:
Gold: 100%

Isn't this a bit of a cop-out and against the rules that Apple is enacting for blind boxes that are available for purchase?

By this same logic, couldn't hey just display the Premium Hero Crystal drop rate stats as:
Champion: 100%

Both are true and both are equally vague. Why isn't gold crystal held to the same standard as every other crystal available for purchase? Shouldn't it be something along the lines of:

2400 gold: 90%
5000 gold: 5%
10,000 gold: 3%
50,000 gold: 2%

Thoughts? Have the developers weighed in on this issue?

    I thought about this as well, but then I realized that they can do that because the gold crystal has 100% chance to reward 2,400 gold. Prove me wrong.

    Yeah it’s a bit off. Since you can purchase gold crystals with in game currency it’s seems the drop rate for different amounts should be included.

    If you go by the apple guidelines they require drop rates for each type of item. Per youtube openings the crystal averages 3200 gold.

    Just another instance where Kabam had the option to be transparent, and decided to keep the player in the dark. Maybe they are not required to post the drop rates on this crystal because of the language used in the rule, but this doesn't mean they couldn't have just posted them anyway.

    Very small thing they could have done for the community, but it fits the pattern of non-transparency.

    I agree with your comment on this. This isnt in the spirit of the apples terms and conditions. Maybe kabam will do something about it. I wonder if they would do anything about it if it was reported to apple by a lot of people.
