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.

The new prompt feature of crystal opening by alliance members: what’s the point?

I remembered one of the take away at General Discussion Threads few months ago was “take out those 3* opening alert by other members” “4* is even not meaningful in current meta that worth an alert”, and etc.

How come Kabam add additional alert for that? It is pretty annoying for those prompts in crystal opening section!

One thing I want to tell Kabam: although you may want to add more of these to create peer comparison and competition, so as to drive the need to open / buy crystals, it doesn’t work in a retirement alliance. Sorry.

    i noticed the same thing, and i'm pretty sure they did this to tempt you to buy some crystals playing on your jealousy... but fortunately i'm in an alliance with only my other two accounts, so it doesn't affect me :-D

    I kinda like it. I'm in a solo alliance. It shows my previous pulls.
    If those info are already available in alliance page, why need additional one and keep prompting in crystal page?

    Besides, it is within Dev Team agenda to streamline those 3* pull info, not to provide more. Even my alliance members pull 6* champ, we can just congrats in line or in-game chat, keep alerting us means nothing but annoyance.

    It takes up precious space in an already cramped space... and when you have to constantly scroll up and down looking for *that* crystal you want to open because the ordering is still wack and has been for a year now, it's annoying. And besides, it changes too fast and most of the time you don't have the time to read it. And of top of that, that information is already available in the Alliance tab and has been forever where it's far easier to read it (I do it sometimes to see what's up in the ally)... so, in a word, useless. :/

    When I saw that, I wondered who at Kabam thought this was a QoL update.

    Being in solo alliance I never open the Alliance Tab.
    I understand it's a useless change. They should remove it completely. I don't wanna know I pulled 6* Venompool from my last crystal.

    Wait! You don't want to know an unnamed alliance member got a 3 star Black Bolt?

    It's to depress you into not opening your crystals and hoard.

    This is an annoying update. The constructive feedback is that this new bar now takes up space and it's harder scrolling through the different crystals now.

    Funny how they can incorporate these little visual additions but can't seem to fix the network connection on mobile data for players..

    Other than that, the rearrangement of alliance milestone objective page is also meaningless but annoying. Why move up and down? Just 3 to 4 objectives only, no need for such rearrangement.

    If Kabam really want to change those minor but annoying stuff, pls empower player to customise themselves. Please.

    I get the point... its banking on a good pull and enticing you to try your luck...

    Problem... they didnt really think this one through right? because 90% of pulls are a bit **** and would actively discourage me from spending units... it's all well and good to see an ally member pull a 5* doom, but im way more likely to see it show up with a 5* Diablo. And why would i go in after seeing that?

    Its a bit annoying and wont achieve the outcome they're hoping for. Get rid of it.

    Diablo? Your alliance is lucky. I think everyone in my alliance has duped 4 and 5* Groot and King Groot.
