TLDR

Make all 5 and 6 Star crystals Nexus.

Long version

At the end of 2015 when the game was new, we had 59 champions.
Opening a crystal gave you 1/59 = 1.69% chance to get a specific champ.

Today you have 1/176 = 0,56% chance to pull that nice looking Squirrel Girl you dreamed about.

If all (relevant) crystals where Nexus, we would have 3/176 = 1,7% chance.
Equivalent to 2015 levels.

Please make 5 and 6 star crystals Nexus.

    That won't happen.
    There will be more ways and opportunities to acquire nexus crystals in the future

    Why not ? What is so fundamentally game breaking about it ?

    It immediately removes the value of nexus crystals in the current state of the game.
    Nexus crystals aren't meant to be the new system of crystals across the entire game. It's meant to be an additional system to the existing one, without replacing the older one

    Then replace them with nexus crystals if it brings BALANCE to game , isint that’s what kabam is all about ? In sincerity ?

    160 champs in the basic pool is a joke , be fair to the players (customers)

    How do you know what they are meant to be?

    Do you have a link to Kabam explaining it?

    3 chances is a little bit too much I think
    A nexus crystal but with 2 options would be ideal

    We should be able to buy a Nexus with 13,000 shards instead.

    I don't think they should make the basic 5 and 6* crystals into nexus. I do believe that to pool is too big though. They should split into 2 basic crystals. 1 with Cosmic, Mystic and Tech champs, the other with Science, Mutant and Skill. That way you have a much fairer chance of getting something useful in line with when the pool was much smaller. They can also add thresholds ie when basic pool hits 240 say the crystals are split into 3 based on class.

    My opinion on nexus crytals at the moment

    I think they said that when they released them. Totally forgot when that was, but they did say it on the forums

    Also, I'm not sure if Nexus crystals would solve the problem long term. More champs would be released and as the player base gets better champs and has an easier time with content, content will begin to be scaled to the rosters we have and it would probably be similar to where we are now. I think kabam should just rethink their design process. Make pretty much all content able to be done with basically any champ. This way, no champ is completely road blocked, and some champs will just be better

    Maybe 'retiring' say the 2015 champs from 5* crystals could work, could also sell a 2015 crystal for maybe 5000 shards too for anyone still wanting them

    That would be nice but won't ever happen as Kabam would lose a ton of money. Honesty think it would be bad for game if all were, however, would like to see it a little more common.

    I'd rather they remove champs until they're buffed. Reduce the pool to everything average and up. Still no guarantee of a Ghost or Doom, but no chance of Cyclops, Iron Fist, Groot, etc.

    The fundamental basis of the game is RNG. We've seen this regarding featureds. Since the featureds alter the drop rate in a way, they cost more. If you want to implement Nexus crystals, then it's going to cost more. I also don't think that we should completely remove the single champ crystals. There's just no point to it. Of course they're going to have to implement a new type of crystal since the pool is growing, but I also think that the single hero crystals are going to stay, and I'd like them to stay.

    Try 15,000. I think anywhere from 15,000-20,000 is reasonable.

    But if we were to implement Nexus crystals to maintain the drop rate, it would only be a short term solution, since over time, the pool will grow larger and larger, making the drop rates smaller and smaller again. When that happens, what are you going to do? Make a five hero Nexus?
