8 Dupes in 32 five star hero roles. Bad luck or par for the course?

It’s very frustrating because I’ve been grinding like a madman the last 3 months and have only dupes of Groot, CA OG, IP, Beast and Rhino to show for it. Five shoes in a row of garbage champs. Im not at the stage of the game where 6 star champs will come more than every 12 months either. I’m not expecting god tier pulls but am trying to build up a big roster of five stars to make grinding easier. Anyone had similar luck or is this worse than normal?

Bad luck. Pay penance to the RNG powers that be or quit

    I'd say be happy with the new champs, you have enough AW Defense, AW Offense, and AQ Offense champs to go around now

    I'm 44 5 stars. 8 dupes. 1 came from the 1st dungeon that came out. That gave only Sig 1 on my beast. I awakened my vodoo with a gem that I got from act 5. Other 6 are normal dupes. My only good dupe is on Blade. So yeah I think it's pretty normal.

    11 natural dupes out of 43 for me. I'd say par for the course.

    I'm not even gonna discuss my five stars but what you have is about right man.

    I have a five-star Kamala Khan and I can't wait to dupe her :-)

    I have 17 5* and only duped 2. I'd actually say you're lucky since it's harder to dupe 5*s. Even if they aren't good dupes you're adding to your 6*shard pool, ISO, and gold. I wish I had your problem. Lol

    Seems pretty normal to me

    Get used to it. I've gone 6 to 9 months without pulling a single champ that I actually want.
  • I have 35 5* and 6 dupes. In those 41 5* crystals, I havent got one mystic. Its all RNG.

    I didn't get my first duped 5* until I had more than 20 of them, so you're not doing too poorly, tbh.

    25 5 stars, only 5 duped. Not many complainers here on volume, so this is an interesting slant. On one hand the extra isos are always useful, so at least your grinders won't all be lower level. On the other hand, I'd probably rather eat unit refreshes over pulling trash if given the choice.

    I have 16 5s, 10 of those are cosmic and skills without a dupe. Rng I hear gets better the more $ you spend. That's at least what a lot of people say...

    Honestly that is at or more dupes than I have total on many more openings so I wouldn’t say you have bad luck

    Champions I’ve duped naturally, storm, Netflix daredevil, BPCW, Loki. I’m not very thrilled with any of them

    My natural dupes are Gwenpool, Ultron, Agent Venom, Rulk, Crossbones, Spiderman OG, Hawkeye, Mordo, Iron Fist, Gambit, Falcon, Hulkbuster, IP, Groot and Colossus (15 out of 42).

    Out of these 15 maybe 3 are actually useful dupes but at least they give some wonderful 6 star shards so meh.. There are many champs I wish I had duped in my roster.

    Your luck might change, or could be good already and you have a lot of cool unduped champs.

    I’m at 23 without a dupe, and 2 of them were from dungeon crystals that I had 3 of
