Are awakening gems really rng?

Hi, i have been playing this game for quite some time and i had the chance To get multiples awakening gem crystal troughout various content.

These ressources being very rare and hard To get in many cases i find really annoying To see that many players have the same issue that i have.

We have 1/6 chance To get a certain class of gem, out of my 6 awakening gems i got 5 mutant and 1 science, my first ever being science and than 5 mutant in a row wich 2 of them i got in the same week.

How is this even possible? Why are our account condemned To receive the same type over and over again? Is there any way we can fix this problem?

It is the first time ever that i take some personnal time To create an account and make a complaint, but getting the same "reward" 5 times in a row out of 6 chances total (wich every time i had a 17% chance to get this particular reward) doesnt seem "rng" To me, especially knowing that many players encounter the exact same problem.

This issue has To ne resolve because, in many cases like me, it blocks free to play player from progression into the game.

I find that this is really insulting and disrespectfull To the players

Ps: (Sorry if my writing sounds weird, i am not english)

  • I've gotten 1 cosmic, 2 science and 2 skill. It is random and there is nothing to fix. I've seen people get one of each before doubling up.

    When you roll a dice, probability to get a combination like abbbbb is pretty low. Now have 2kk people rolling a dice, and it's almost guaranteed there are a lot of people with combination like that. To have math expectation working, you need to have a lot of experiment repetitions, in that game case - opening many crystals

    I got 3 science to begin... i was a bit annoyed (used 2 on HT and then Void when i pulled him, saving the other for CAIW if i ever get him) but since then i've had a skill, cosmic, and 2 mutant... seems pretty random

    I really don't understand what your problem is.

    Random =/= balanced

    The jump to thinking the rng is somehow not random is a huge leap in logic, mate.

    That's the equivalent of seeing a dice land on a 6 5 times in a row and immediately suspecting the dice must be rigged. It's wild.

    It's almost like you get placed in a certain bracket. Where you only get certain rewards and/or Champions.

    But your analogy is kinda wrong. You grab 2 dice and see how long it takes you to roll a 6 5times in a row. Dont worry..... I'll wait....

    The reason why it seems like it happens so often is because people only mention the times that it actually happens. People wont go on the forums to say, "I got a generally even spread of awakening gems" so for all the times that you see it happen, there are far more times where it doesn't.

    None of what you said makes any sense.

    Each roll is an independent event with around 16.7% probability, the chance of landing a 6 has nothing to do with your previous rolls. Landing a '6' five times in a row is definitely possible, just rare to happen. Same for the AG crystal.

    Unless you have a very large sample size, your case cannot conclude anything.

    It's just simple probability bro. It is random. What you have got is a low probability but certainly not impossible. That's it.

    First, it is not completely random because rng can never be truly and completely random. But it very well may be as random as an rng can be programmed to be.
    Second, the odds of landing 5 mutant in a row is actually not that much of a long shot even in a truly random experiment relative to other games of chance that people play all of the time. It’s actually only about 1 in 7,043.
    Do I think that kabam is on the straight and narrow when it comes to dealing fairly with the players? No. But do I think that this situation is an instance of their deviousness? No. Just bad luck.

    Apologies for any disappointment in which awakening gem you've received, but it is random and not affected by account or inventory.
