Please Refresh 5* Featured Crystal Each Month

It would be a huge improvement to these crystals if instead of being updated every 3 months they instead would be updated monthly. The drop rates have already been lowered so much that there is no longer the risk of a specific champion flooding the game and a faster update schedule would really improve the game for those of us who open these crystals. When a champion you would like to go for ends up coming out just after the crystal refreshes it really sucks having to wait 3 months. For me personally this is the third time a champ I would like to roll for ends up getting delayed nearly 3 months after their release date before coming to the featured 5* crystal.

Since 2 champions are released each month it would be awesome if the oldest 2 champions were removed and the newest 2 got put in. This refresh could take place either at the end of each month or two weeks after the second champs release date. Kabam could keep the same basic champions in there for more than a month to make it easier to maintain.

    Champs would still have 3 months inside the crystal. They could keep an old crystal around during the change over so the most recent 4 champs get their full 3 months as well.

    Yeah the old crystal made it too easy for certain champs to flood the game so I never expect to get it back, though it was great for people who liked to save all their shards for their favorite champs.

    Maybe in the future it would be nice if the drop rate was improved to something in between the old 20% and the new 4% but for now I would just appreciate a faster refresh on the 5* featured crystal so that certain champs aren't locked behind this massive wait time due to having an unlucky release date.

    How come? What about the current system do you like and how would a monthly refresh be a negative for you?

    Wouldn’t we run out of featured champs then?

    No the crystal would always have 6 featured champs just like it does now, except every time two new champions are released they would get put in and the oldest two champions would be taken out. Can't run out of heroes because it only gets updated once the new heroes have been released.

    Sadly that isn't true. Brian Grant opened over 10 Blade crystals. Not a single Blade.

    I like the idea of reverting back to the old system and maybe halving the drop rate (10% for the featured seems reasonable). But since they will never revive that, I like the idea of the rotating crystal. You have the base 18 old champs that stay in there for as long as they are now, 3 months or however long it is. Then every month rotate the oldest 2 with the newest. So if you had Bishop, Sabretooth, Proxima, Corvus, CAIW, and IMIW as the new 6 featured, next month you swap out Bishop and Sabretooth with Domino and Masacre. Then a month after that, swap Proxima and Corvus with Wasp and Ghost. Personally I like this idea because as it is now you have to wait nearly 6 months for champs who just miss the cutoff (in this case Sym Supreme) and by then he’s already been in the basic for 2 months.

    Sadly that just means BG was unlucky. It doesn't mean the previous featured wasn't flooding the game with featured champions for most players who saved enough shards.

    That would be a much better system so of course it'll never happen.

    Yes, i love it.

    It would be a negative cause in 10k i always get trash since the crazy amount of champs available

    The featured restricts that with a handfull of great champs, and 1 month is too short of a time to get a considerable amount of shards to get some luck with those champs

    You would still get 3 months though. The basic champions would stay the same for the entire 3 months, and only 2 of the featured champs would rotate out. Take Symbiote Strange and Venom Duck as an example - They would enter at the end of October and stay in the crystal until the end of January. The only champs who wouldn't get 3 months would be the featured champs who would be bumped out in October. To compensate for this Kabam could just keep the old featured crystal around for a while so no one misses out.

    The newest 5* featured refresh was announced as expected, so no change as of yet which is disappointing. I hope the dev's at least consider making this change as it wouldn't take a monumental effort to fix but it would greatly improve the game experience for those of us who don't mind paying an extra cost to take a chance on getting these new heroes.
