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.

4-Star Psylocke in 5-Star Crystals [Under Investigation]

I opened two different 5-Star Crystals this morning on two different accounts, and during the first one, I saw a 4-Star Psylocke near the end of the reel. So when I opened my second one, I decided to take a video. You can definitely see a few 4-Star Psylockes in the 5-Star Crystal and you can also see her in the pictures of available champs for the 5-Star Crystal (the one that changes from champ to champ right next to the buttons where you purchase the Crystal). It won't allow me to post the video but I think I can post a screenshot.

  • Hello Kabam,

    What's going on? Just spun two 5* crystals and saw 4*s in them?

    Should have taken a video

    If anything, it would be a visual error. Rarities don't jump pools. The roll is just a visual effect, and not representative of the actual outcome.

    LAgacy69 had the same problem on stream
  • I hope you're right about that GroundedWisdom. Cause honestly Kabam accidentally putting 4*s in a 5* crystal is entirely possible considering their QA quality over the past year.

    Barring some server glitch, the pools are separate. The Spin is just a window into some of the possibilities. It's a visual effect. When the Crystal accesses the algorithm, the possible Champs are there. Those algorithms are specific to each Crystal.

    Unless someone pulls an actual 4*, that's just a visual glitch.

    im still scared to open any 5 stars
  • As mentioned, you see it in this guy's stream.

  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 28,415 ★★★★★
    Well, seeing them is different. The Spin is a computer-generated list of possibilities, but the actual outcome is determined when you click Spin or Open. The roll doesn't reflect the actual outcome. Now, if someone pulls an actual 4*, then I would be inclined to believe it's an algorithm glitch.

    i still dont wanna risk it if you get me what if i pull thy 4 star
  • I can see what you're saying. At the same time, how do you know the background code? Is it that hard to believe that Kabam joined the 4* database table to the 5* database table? I'm not saying I know, but I would feel bad for the person that pulls a 4*.

    The other thing is the pool of possibilities. When you throw in 4*s into a 5* crystal, the pool is bigger.

    thats why im scared what if i pull a 4 star how would kabam react to that?
  • As you can see in the screenshot, one of the player in the alliance found something odd in his 5* crystal opening

    @Eye_of_the_Universe, wow this seems more than just a visual bug. Kabam better fixes it ASAP before some honest players fall victim to this. In the future, before I open any 5* crystal, I better check for this too (never imagine this type of "bug" in the first place). Thanks for your sharing! :)
  • Isman1998Isman1998 Posts: 520 ★★★
    Oh snap. Good looking out bro. I was about to open my crystal. I would've been heated if I got a 4 star Psylocke. Ima wait til they fix this and confirm the fix.
  • which kabam employee should i tag for this?
  • Isman1998Isman1998 Posts: 520 ★★★
    @Kabam Miike Can you take this to the game team please.
  • Isman1998Isman1998 Posts: 520 ★★★
    It's a visual error. I have yet to see someone actually pull her.

    I still don't want to run the risk lol. Knowing my luck I'll mess around and actually get the 4 star even if it's a visual glitch. Lmao.

    I don't know why you are pretending to have any clue what you're talking about GroundedWisdom. There is zero evidence as to weather it's visual or algorithmic. Absurdly illogical non sense flies out of your ass in abundance? There were 5 minutes, sample is way too small in that length of time to determine anything. Learn when to let adults talk.

  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 28,415 ★★★★★
    It's called having an understanding of the Spin versus the outcome. The Spin never reflects the actual outcome, and that much has been stated and confirmed by Mods many times. We have a visual error, and thus far, not one person who had actually pulled her.
