Earlier today, there was an issue where Summoners that logged on shortly after the Login Calendar switched over for the day didn't receive the Cosmic Ghost Rider login crystal. We've fixed the issue for players receiving the crystal now but will have to collect data and send out the crystal to all players that didn't receive it next week. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to making it right for you all.

Has anyone else notice the drop rates on crystals have plummeted?

Is it me or have the drop rates on all crystals are way low? I used to get an average of a 4* about every two weeks on premiums.Now, I haven't seen one in over 6 weeks.I'm lucky to even get a 3* now! The Arena crystals! LOL! No 4* punisher since game started and the last 60 crystals yielded me a whopping 15 units! Ridiculous! Solo crystals have always been bad! Getting xp bonus about 50% I keep a close observation on all my openings and have notice a severe drop in everything!

    I agree on the arena crystals, but at the same time, for all I know it could just be my bad luck. I've recently been getting only 15 units every 20 crystals on average, as opposed to 30 units every 10 crystals previously.

    Arena crystals no. During Voodoo arena i opened 55 and got 175 units but today during Venom I opened 8 and saved the rest and got 90 units. PHC different story.

    No changes that I've seen. They seem to come and go in waves. Sometimes I'll have good rolls. Sometimes it's 2* Mania. That's how they roll.

    Unfortunately it goes I. Waves from what I've seen. It seems to rotate around my alliance. When some are hot others aren't.

    I went about 300 crystals without a premium, got one finally, then opened 2 out of 2 crystals the next day. It's just a super low chance. Arena crystals seem as high as usual lately too. It'll come around.

    It's been almost a year since I got a 4* from a phc.

    You're in no position to complain about crystal luck then, cause that's insanely lucky. I get a 4* from premiums once every 3-4 months at best

    I usually accumulate about 25 Premiums a week from Arenas and events sometimes more like the GOTG events.

    You would still be considered incredibly lucky. Most people pull one 4* every 100-150 PHC's. That being said when you get lucky is completely random. I once got two 4* champs when I opened 5 PHC's at one time. I've also gone 6+ months without a single 4* from a PHC.

    I get 1 4* about every 150-200. Getting one biweekly is extremely lucky

    Nope I still get all 2*s from phc's :D

    The reason why i created this thread. I went a year where i was consistently getting at least 30-90 units per 10 Arena crystals. now i get nothing but gold.
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,461 ★★★★
    I've opened 40 arena crystals and gotten all gold. I do think the unit percentage might have dropped but it could also just be bad luck

    The unit drop rate has not changed from day 1 of this game. I do not spend on this game anymore and am more than able to keep an average of 2000 units in my account. I do not buy crystals as the phc crystals are simply garbage. Featured hero drop rates are terrible but have always been that way. Currently running arenas to score 6-7 million in each basic arena for champs because I have not had a 4 star from a phc in over 4 months. The drop rates are less than 1% so do the math. With every new champ offered your chances decrease to pulling an actual great 4 star from a crystal or any kind. You will get garbage 99% of the time or a dupe of a garbage 4 star.

    I got 3-4 4* champions from PHCs in a year and a half. If you were getting one every 2 weeks before than you should feel very lucky.

    I switched alliances 2 weeks ago and have since gotten 4* lady thor and yellowjacket from PHCs. Pray to RNGsus.

    Arena crystals seem equally bad as always. That's freaking crazy getting biweekly 4* from PHC...I get probably 1 every 4 months and I open tons of those...never buy them though. You should consider yourself lucky if you used to get those drop rates.

    6 weeks isn't very long, I've not seen a 4* in PHC / GOTG crystal since months ago.. it's all 2* nowadays but of course you have the choice of spending 15000 units for 1 4* and 1 5*... that's absolutely unbelieveable

    i got my last 4* from prem in march, so please dont cry... :D

    I once got 5 4stars in a row from premiums and got 2 from premium on my first day. Haven't even got a 3 star since February. Either my luck has plumeted or it is a LOT harder to get them

    What happened to "drop rates have to be posted because of law in China"?

    Haven't noticed a decline in crystal drop rates, myself. The past two weeks I've rolled 4* from PHC, and nailed about 10 3* from em, as well.

    4* from premium every 2 weeks? If i find one every month and an half I double my average. I also do all events, arena milestones, but I've never found that many. Maybe your luck dried and you believe the odds decreased. Maybe they did, but being unlucky I didn't really notice

    I didn't say 'every two weeks', I said the past two weeks.

    It wasnt addressed to you, else I would've quoted you. It was an answer to OP

    Didn't notice he'd said the two week thing too, d'oh! lol

    I went nearly six months w/o a 4* from a PHC, but have pulled two in the past ten days. I am just hoping that the luck sticks around for a while. Antman and SIM were not exactly thrilling and hardly can be considered lucky. Lol
  • RydertheblackRydertheblack Posts: 294
    Yeah, the drop rates after V12 had dropped like a stone in water
  • SubTypicalSubTypical Posts: 63
    Agreed. Thought they'd have to comply. But, Kabam.
