13 3*-5* crystals or one 5* crystal?

Hello!
So, I've managed to gather another 20k generation chips after grinding in the arenas and was wondering what to buy. I know that a 5* crystal is a much safer option, but with those 3-5 star generation crystals I could have the rare chance of getting more than one 5 star bot...
So what should I buy?

    Go for the 5*

    Unless you really want thirteen 3* bots, take the 5*.

    FYI, this morning I popped all my remaining 12K chips through 8 crystals and got exactly 8 three stars. Like if I had another choice....
  • 1.5% chance to 5 star × 13 is still just 16,5% chance..

    Absolutely go for the 5 star, the 3-5 crystals are made for those who couldn't be collect enough crystals, lower lvl or no time to play

    This shouldn't even be up for debate.

    Buy 13 of those crystals since you must really want 1300 4* shards

    This is not how probability works.

    It's a 1.5% chance per individual crystal, it does not increase to 16.5% just because you buy them all at once.

    Learn to math.

    ^^ THIS.

    At the start of the Generations Arenas week, I nearly had enough chips for a 5* Generation Crystal. So, I saved up and got the 5* Crystal... and duped one of my 5*s (I think it was Jazz or Bludgeon?). Since then, I only earned enough chips for 6 of the regular 3-5* Generations Crystals. I spun them last night. Guess what happened? 6 3*s.
  • I had 3-4 x 3* and 2 x 4* in the 5-6 I got. There was always the trade off.

    I got 5 and got: 4 3* bots and 1 5* bot
  • Okay then, I listened to all of you (and my better judgement) and popped one of them...

    Not bad, but I wish I got him yesterday!

    That is the best outcome you could have hoped for. Enjoy him over the 13 3* bots you would have received.

    I'm a lucky sod, but I figured I wouldn't get another 5* crystal and had some chips left over and thought "YOLO"

    Hight respect the use of the word "sod"
  • I did the multiple and got a 5* Ratchet. Not my first choice but not my last.
