    Nothing like finally getting another 4* crystal completed... and duping it.

    Two more prestiges and I'll have one as well. Not expecting anything but a dupe.

    If there's one thing about this game that annoys me, it's that I'm missing 20+ 4* characters and get dupes more often than not.

    They also said that there is no 2* version of the robot this time.

    If you complete the event, you get 100 crystals. That's already 40 more chances than a regular prestige event. The Leaderboard prizes will be even more chances.

    The drop rate is probably going to be the same as Gnaw. If it's true that there is no 2* version this time, then there will most likely be people that end up not getting the character at all. But at the same time, we don't really use 2* characters anyway, so it's not like that's a huge loss.

    They said that shards and spark will be crystal prizes too. If they really want to sell people on this event, they will include 5* shards in that. They have not confirmed that either way.

    but by saving up to 300 crystals will increase the chance of opening a 4*? or just it makes no differences just the way you like it?

    Just for the sake of discussion, I'll point out that some players open their crystals as they get them, and some wait until the event is over. Also, not everyone posts what they get.

    You have the exact same chance formula in each crystal...having more makes no difference at all

    Overall it was a pretty good event for me. The prize was the xp, so I wasn't too worried about the prestige rewards, however, I was pleased to replenish my white kremzeeks which are awesome for air shows. I finished 47 prestiges and got a lot of leveling done. I was most pleased to pull 4* Elita 1 from her bundle on Friday, however, I didn't get a SBB to pop until Sunday afternoon. However, I was easily able to get her to 50 and she's currently in the cooker. I also had enough spark left over to take her to SA5 and managed to pull a silver core from a 2* dupe.

    She is absolutely awesome. She is currently able to solo z9 and was pulling ~30k xp. Made for easy work.

    I also got lynx to 57, and hes an absolute monster.

    I also got my poor 3* Tracks to 50 ( I struck out hard chasing the 4*). He's still really useful though.

    And finally, in a fit of craziness yesterday evening, I decided to push jazz from 55 to 56, putting almost 3.7 mil xp on him in about 3 hours.

    And finally, I got enough spark to upgrade AB to SA9, giving me another gunner who can one shot lvl16 mortars.

    I completed the event and it was massively productive for me.

    I leveled up 10 4-star bots this weekend:
    Tigerhawk in the lab for level 50
    Ironhide to 53
    Powerglide to 55
    Jumpstream to 55
    Jetfire to 55
    Slag to 56
    Skyburst to 56
    Magnus to 56
    Prowl to 57
    Swoop to 58

    I wish I had managed to get Sunny, Ratchet and Snarl leveled, but they will be the priority next weekend I suppose. All are under 800k away in XP and I plan to juice again to get them done. I’m quite excited actually.

    I do know for a fact that one of our alliance members opened 250 Elita one crystals to unlock her. I was able to do it with 50 (got her on the 23rd crystal).

    No disrespect, but on a couple of things it sounds like you've misunderstood the explanation of the crystal odds and drawn some incorrect conclusions.

    Per Space Ape, each crystal contains the same statistical odds to win prizes, and the odds are not affected or influenced by any quantity, history, or method of opening.

    I've seen people in my alliance get the 4* character on the very first crystal. I've seen people never get the 3* or the 4* after four events. FWIW, I earned 4* and 3* Gnaw in the third event, so it took me much less than 300 crystals to get him.

    Saving to 300 crystals will take at least 3 events (assuming future events are capped at 60 crystals), probably spanning at least a year.

    Saving crystals if u don't buy fuel is actually just silly...just gives you less time to develop what you have the same odds of getting regardless of saving. I don't mean saving to the end of event or anything like that but I've seen f2p on global saving 4* crystals and it makes no sense at all

    Event details have been posted on Discord:

    Triple XP event
    100 Prestige + Leaderboard
    10k points per Prestige
    20k Energon, 20k Alloy, 225 Spark, 30 Premium Shards, and 1 Event Crystal per Prestige
    Event Crystal prizes: 50 Premium Shards, 50 3* Shards, 50 4* Shards, 1k Spark, 3* Magnus/Malus, 4* Magnus/Malus

    Twins will be "hard to get" and only available through these events (no bundles) but the plan is to have events for them more often than we've had for Gnaw

    They are planning on a Legacy 5* crystal, which will be a collection of all the previous releases in a separate group.
