Not only is it not fake but I actually had (still have) 25 screen shots and just randomly chose 6 of them to fit in the Diptic app frame Sad 

Krew, I think our is more average luck. We just see and hear more about the lucky ones - like a slot machine winner in the casino - we think "oh, people actually win, maybe I can" but we don't think about the hundreds or thousands of people playing the slots at the same time who are losing.  When I learned about my allies and their friends having similar bad luck I had to explicitly ask about it.

But given that, and then given these daily clumpings of several cards in one pull, I wonder if fanta needs to adjust their RNG to spread the love?

To be fair, I know at least one of those players, kresnik, is a big pay player. All the time.

Other than that, I just... I can't.

After the market crashed because ZOMG 7*S! I wanted so badly just to either quit or buy as many coins as I could. I stopped myself from either and so far have all but 1 of my favorite 5*s (soon to be all but 2) and no 6*s to mention. But I do enjoy the game. The market just sucks.

I once offered for an Aksana on RCR when I saw a guy pull Aksana+Paris+Delfina
then he asked me what my offer was for: Aksa/Paris/Delf or EURY?
I'm like did you get 4 6*s in one pull?
and he was like yeah sure, is that uncommon?
it was a megabox not even step up...

No  I had to buy my Eury and trade for my Aksana with BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS, with net worth accumulated over a long period of time. All I've ever received from step ups is a regular 5* - but usually all I get are 3s and 4s Sad 

Like I said in my earlier post where I uploaded the image, that was just random six screenshots out of over 25 I had from just snapping them occasionally, not even looking for it but just when I happened to notice it.

Should Fanta fix their RNG to spread the luck around rather than allowing it to clump together like this?

Well we're all pretty sure Fanta's card pack RNG is horrible but I decide one last time to put money into these new hero packs...and I'm pretty pissed beyond words. Do they not understand the meaning of RANDOM units? With 9 packs, inlcluding the 100 point starter, I got 7 freaking Orlando's and 2 Debbie's. This is pretty freakin horrible whilst people are pulling 5 and 6 stars left and right from every second I check the RCR. Gotta cut my gambling off this game now.

People waiting to pull their first 6* want some rage fuel? I just had an ally quit with about 10 seconds of notice. He turned his Borage, Patear, and Epicharis into Luna right before he left.

I did finally get a good pull, Aksana and Bajardo on a step 7. Now resisting temptation and sticking to the buying pure TE plan until the Dark Princess event hits the US version.

Only 6* I've drawn is Epic and uh yeah...I've bought Step 7x2 in the last 3 step ups and barely pull 1 5* each set. Kyo then Lily then Patricia.

just to drop in my 2cts...
I only dared venture to step 6 during the doomsday tower event...
got my first 5* Leir. not a bad pull i thought. but wasn't going to spend so much in just one event.
but now thinking about gambling on the megaboxes, fanta hero series box set. well at least the 100 coin pack...
is tat stupid?

Spent $90 (getting 3 of those series boxes) - Total of 21 cards

Result: 21 [4-star cards]

The odds are extremely against you. If you're going to try, I think it's just best to buy 1 card and that's it. The chances to pull 5* and 6* don't increase with the more you buy obviously if you consider each pull having a static chance. So essentially buying a large amount of pulls just gives you more times at pulling. Not increasing the chance to get 5* or 6* on the single pull.

TL;DR - Highly unlikely to get anything but 4*. At around $5 a pull it's only worth it if you take the first single pull (@ $1) offer. Since you might get lucky. But after that. Wouldn't recommend.

Though it's all luck so there you go.

Nice analysis prysmal pal.
I'm gonna pull the 100 coin and wait for the next event when it comes up again.
i notice they always have that to lure noobs or starters...
So it's wise only to get stepup packs then...?

Way I see it. It's worth taking the deals if you really feel the urge to test luck.

In step-up events; Steps 1-3 are affordable (even step 4 is alright). After that it's hardcore gambling since each card pull will become $4+.

There are cases where moba offers the 100 coin pull for the new series pack or event pack. These are also affordable.

Currently, there's this whole "dream box" thing that's happening. But once again, it's a cash-in scheme. If you just do simple calculations. The chance to pull a 6* or 7* from the chest is at ~0.3% (5/1335). Even after buying 100 card pulls ($300 expenditure) that would only bring the chance up to ~0.4% (5/1235).

If you're anyone is going to spend so much pulling; might as well just buy TE and outright buy the card off someone.

But in the end, it's all about luck. If you feel that 0.3% is very attainable then by all means, go for it. Otherwise, if anyone were to buy packs just to test luck. Best time to buy is when there are offers, keeping the pull cost at under $2.50 (which I guess is reasonable price).

TL;DR
If you're REALLY feeling the want to gamble:
- Pull cards when it's step up series. Step 1-4 is cost effective. After that it's very pricey.
- Pull cards when it's less than 250 mobacoins per card.

Just remember it's all about luck. Odds are severely against you.

100 coin pull (dream pack): Thief with S atk speed
100 coin pull (hero series): Orlando (anyone surprised?)
3k coin pull (dream pack): Lusoria + 9x 4*
is that considered "not bad" for my first 6*?

Putting in 3k points and getting a 6* is definitely worth it, especially if that's the first time you paid 3k. I've spent 3k points twice this week and got crap so yeah...

100% agree, i spent a total of maybe $20-$25 i never got anything, everytime i spent money on this game i would get 4*s and commons and bullshit one time i got a 3*, but during the madiens2 event i got so damn lucky and pulled a soldado fr free not great but first 5* so i was happy. and is there really a ticket that gets you a 5* or greater? O.o i want one lol
