New drop rates display

@Kabam Miike for the crystals where there is a featured champion (i.e. the crystal with jane foster), will the drop rates on be displaying the chance for each star rating of champion, or while it also display the chance to get that champion at each of the specific ratings? (I can see how this will end up confusing for people but puting the overall chance for the featured champ in parenthesis next to each star rating might help). And just adding a suggestion, let everyone know once again before the update that the drop chances lower every time a new champion is added to the crystal roster and that at some point, regular crystals will end up with a 1% drop chance for each champion.

  • It'll be interesting if they include drop rate per champion, but as far as the ss goes, the phc won't have that, I'd assume the other crystals won't either.

    See Kabam was that so terrible adding that info after all?

    Sadly, PHC has nothing more than the rate that many already know

    We likely won't be seeing Kabam adding Champion specific drop-rate in another 500 years ... :(
    Don't get me wrong, I would like to see what's the % to get Hyperion, Starky, Blade, etc ... but as long as it is NOT a requirement from Apple or any other fruitti-tutti company, Kabam will certainly be happy to display nothing

    This is excellent, finally put to the rest of all the naysayers claiming they don't need to follow Apple's rules and claiming their theory of the in-game currency vs actual cash purchase. Glad that this is settled once for all. totally agree with @BitterSteel this is a great improvement on transparency! Kudos!

    @Kabam Miike So, what does this mean? Please elaborate...

    "The rates you see are set in the back-end and directly display the drop rates of the crystal. This means that there is no room for human error and you are getting the most accurate information."

    Shame they waited until after the 5* Blade featured crystal is done to do this.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with the new featured crystal. In the new featured crystal, its a limited pool, but everyone has the same odds. whereas the blade crystal a hero had specific odds

    It means it pulls the numbers directly from coding as opposed to the coding saying one thing, and the display saying another.

    Are you going display basic 5 * crystal rates on old heros? Why do I keep getting cyclops and storm with 90 champs in the crystal? Rigged!

    Equal opportunity, guess you just have no luck.

    Luck??? Gtfo! What are the chances of me getting 3 storms and 3 cyclops with 90 other characters in the crystal?
  • Dexman1349Dexman1349 Posts: 3,060 ★★★★★
    The same chances of pulling 4-of-a-kind in Poker. It's rare, but does happen.

    Using your 90 champs the probability would be 2.22% that you would pull a Storm or a Cyclops. The probability is the same unfortunately regardless of how many crystals you open. Enjoy that god tier Cyclops though. He keeps eluding me.

    The same as you getting 3 archangel’s and 3 gwenpools.

    Also the same as you getting ant man, winter soldier, medusa, gwenpool, vulture and yondu

    Also the same as you getting literally any combination of non-feature champs. That’s how probability works.

    Miike did a pretty good job covering for that in the main thread. I know it is inevitable, but should be fun to watch.

    What I would like displayed @Kabam Miike is the negative drop rate change for longterm players vs short term players to pull newly released champs in five star crystal.
  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 20,664 ★★★★★
    There is none.

    @Kabam Miike will the rates be displayed for the shards versions of crystals as well or are we to assume it's the same rates?

    Would you be saying that if you got say Archangel or Blade? Would it be rigged then or would you not be complaining then? It's rigged if you don't get what YOU want vs it's working as intended when you get what YOU want. Can't have it both ways.

    Why would Shard Crystals be any different?

    Yes. It's not how RNG works. It doesn't mean someone is guaranteed 2/100 if there is a 2% chance. These numbers are pretty consistent with what we've already been able to gather over the years.

    aren’t you just reiterating what everyone else is saying?

    I'm going to enjoy my coffee, rather than play Scrabble with you.
