Lucky Iczer

Postby edgarfigaro » Fri Dec 19, 2008 12:56 pm

In honor of launching the second expansion set, Wrath of the Four Gods, it’s time to give everyone a chance to get all those Basic Set and Expansion 1 Cards they’ve always wanted!

From now until launch on Monday morning, we’re giving the Card Lottery a kick in the percentages!

We’re also adding a new ranking to the main page, a constantly updating listing of our Lucky Iczers who score Rarity 5 cards or Prize Cards. Try the lottery and show off your big wins!

So, just how generous is this Lucky Iczer event? Not sure if I should spend my $$ on a a box set or on the lottery, so if anyone has any advice on which would be a better investment, I'm all ears.

well I just bought 4 lottery cards and got nothing but 1 star rares : - / so yeah I don't know. That said, last time they had the "improved rarity" lottery I pulled two 3 stars in the only 3 cards I bought. Boxes are definitely better for guaranteed cards (your guaranteed at least 1 5 star and at least 1 4 star) but whether or not the lotterys odds are in favor of more high rare pulls I can't say, obviously my pulls so far haven't seemed to suggest such.

This was a very vague announcement. You probably aren't supposed to say much.

Has the chance of only 5 stars been raised, or, all rare cards?

We have raised the chance to get rarity 3s, 4s, and 5s. Everything but the EX cards are included.

Is the increased rate higher then that of just buying packs cause as I understand it the rate for the lottery is normally below that of packs and now having gotten five 1 stars in five tries my luck seems to actually still be worse then if I had just bought a pack. I highly doubt it but any chance you could give some percentages (like normally your odds of getting a 1 star are 80%, 2 star 10% 3 star 5%, 4 star 3%, 5 star 2%, and now its some where around 75%, 10%, 8%, 4%, 3%?)

Wow Dan, if you're estimates are anywhere near realistic than I must be the luckiest Iczer of all time. Go check my results in General Discussion and you'll see what I mean. I just think you had a string of bad luck in your draws.

While I can't say exact percentages I can say that Dans example of the change isn't to far off. I honestly don't know it myself as logress was handling that but basicaly the 1stars have been reduced a good margin, more than in dan's example, and everything else has been upped accordingly. Not sure if 2's where left the same or also bumped a bit.

Bumping up 2's is a kick in the teeth.

Everything has a better chance except 1's, which have a worse...

Also, the Lucky Iczer top three ranking has a bigger record, if you check out the Lucky Iczer menu option it pulls up a top 100 list.
