In our ongoing effort to improve the Premier Recruits experience, we have made another important update that we wanted to share:
- Starting today (Friday, April 19), the drop rate of 5-Star characters in Premier Recruits has been increased from 5% to 10%.
As a part of this update, we have also taken a look at an opaque feature of Premier Recruits that guaranteed a 5-Star character in every 40 opens. We believe that this “1-in-40” guarantee was not sufficiently transparent, was difficult for players to track progress against, and was a consistent source of confusion. Accordingly, we have removed the 1-in-40 guarantee in favor of increasing the drop rate of 5-Star characters to 10%. We believe this is a substantially improved experience in that players will be able to obtain significantly more 5-Star characters going forward.
As a reminder, we’ve also recently improved the odds of acquiring the featured Premier Recruit with each open. The more Premier Recruits opens you make, the better your chances are of receiving the featured Premier Recruit until you get that featured character.
Let us know what you think of these changes. Thank you and we appreciate your feedback.
