FoC Crystal Drop Rates

Can Kabam redo the percentages for the FoC crystals? Perhaps something more like:

T3a 5%
T4B 5%
T3a essence 22%
T4B essence 65%
Titan Frag 3%

We use T4B and T3a closer to a 2:1 ratio, that's assuming you're taking a bot to R5. However, the crystal drop rates are a 1:1 ratio. Can clearly see we will or already have an abundance of T3a (that can't even be sold).

Even mid tier players where their only access to T4c is FoW and bot battle AE will generally be able to take bots to R4. Then the ratio of T4b to T3a usage goes to 3:1.

I understand there are other areas in the game where we earn these type of resources. So it's not just about balance in FoC crystals but an overall balance in the game. I'm sure your metrics will show that it is a bit unbalanced right now and could use some re-work.

    This works for some, but not those that are short of T3A. 👹

    So you and some want to screw everyone else because you have an excess T3A?

    Very open to hearing other POVs. Please do explain what it's like for you. Not trying to screw anyone if you look at what I'm saying and how the usage of these resources is like.

    I agree with JKL and BOFAD on this. It seems Kabam didn’t really think about it and just decided that since both t3a and t4b are the top sparks, it should be a near equal drop rate. They didn’t take into account that you need more t4b than t3a when ranking up bots.

    (Edit: took out comment on mid-tier folks as JKL already covered the benefits for them)

    Ready to revisit this now that it's been a few weeks since I originally posted.

    It really is creating an imbalance. A bunch already expired.

    On another note, i am still building my roster but eventually id like to see titan fragments from an am crystal.... every crystal i have opened so far has been t4b or t3a either essence or full sparks and not a titan fragment to be found yet!!
  • WolfmillsWolfmills Posts: 446
    Increase the odds of titan fragments slightly and dropping the t3a because it is coming way faster than the t4b is!! Just seems odd we can get t4c essence from t3 ore crystals but not am crystals

    Another option would be to split the T3a percentage to some T4c shards? That way it doesn't increase the amount of T4B from the current setup.

    Or how about splitting some of the t3a percentage into titan fragments?

    Well, for me at least, it looks like that’s what he got after opening 10 of said crystals.

    appreciate it. I figured popping 10 crystals shouldn't hurt. lol

    Who in the hell is short or lacking of T3a?

    You need more t4b than t3a, it's right there in the numbers when you are ranking bots up. So yeah, it creates a huge imbalance. It's obvious man, no point arguing it. Everyone is having this problem and if you aren't yet then you will soon.

    If you are one of those people trying to level up every bot, sure t4b is harder to come by. (FOC drop rates though are not helping matters though, I feel you on that one)

    It's not hard to pick and choose bots and not run out of either, especially since they just let everyone buy a ton of t4b with rectification chips.

    This crystal is pretty useful, in my opinion.

    Do you enjoy watching T3As rot in your stash?

    @Gunz0 @DaveJL @BOFAD @JKL @DaBeast4Real (Hi beastdad?)
    are on point.

    The FoCC's terrible RNG ensures:dyy088g7eads.png

    @Kabam Vydious pretty please tell the devs a slight lean towards T4B would be terrific.
    Or let us sell T3A for >1K Titan Fragments

    Pretty please

    Perhaps they deliberately want it this way as it means we're more likely to part with cash for T4b? I guess they've got to make some money from somewhere. I like the idea of being able to sell T3A for Titan Fragments.

    Hahahaha
    I want to cry

    I now have 6 expiring T3A...
    ...would even entertain the notion of giving em away to anyone who wants em

    man that hurts... I hoard the crystals and only spin them when I'm use up my stash and even doing this, I have a few set to expire. I guess we should just get use to this
