The rates in the booster packs above can be found by clicking on the % icon on the packs sold at the Vault. As you can see from the note above the rates, the percentages refer to the odds of getting at particular rarity within the entire purchase. For example, a mythic rate of 6.82% in a booster pack means you have exactly 6.82% or about 1 in 15 to get 1 or more mythics in the pack. Because of the way the odds are presented, the rates won't add up to 100%. The only time the rate will add up to 100% is if the pack contains exactly one card (like the old free single card booster pack).
So what exactly are the odds for each rarity then and are they the same for all Packs? The formula is simple and the answer is yes, they are all the same for all the packs. The formula is Rarity Odds = 1 - ( (1-p)^(1/n) ) where p is the probability listed on the pack for that rarity and n is the number of cards in that pack. Note that once the listed probability above reaches 100%, one can no longer back into the actual rarity odds. Ok, so now I'm going to open up my calculator app and start computing....
M19 Booster Pack
- Common odds = 1 - ( (1-.9797)^(1/5) ) = 0.5413
- Uncommon odds = 1 - ( (1-.9166)^(1/5) ) = 0.3915
- Rare odds = 1 - ( (1-.2349)^(1/5) ) = 0.0521
- Mythic odds = 1 - ( (1-.0682)^(1/5) ) = 0.014
- MP odds = 1 - ( (1-.0050)^(1/5) ) = 0.0010
- Common odds = 1 - ( (1-.1)^(1/15) ) = 1
- Uncommon odds = 1 - ( (1-.9994)^(1/15) ) = 0.3902
- Rare odds = 1 - ( (1-.5521)^(1/15) ) = 0.0521
- Mythic odds = 1 - ( (1-.1910)^(1/15) ) = 0.014
- MP odds = 1 - ( (1-.0149)^(1/15) ) = 0.0010
- Common odds = 1 - ( (1-1)^(1/25) ) = 1
- Uncommon odds = 1 - ( (1-1)^(1/25) ) = 1
- Rare odds = 1 - ( (1-.7377)^(1/25) ) = 0.0521
- Mythic odds = 1 - ( (1-.2977)^(1/25) ) = 0.014
- MP odds = 1 - ( (1-.0248)^(1/25) ) = 0.0010
Common Odds = 54.13%
Uncommon Odds = 39.15%
Rare Odds = 5.21%
Mythic Odds = 1.4%
MP Odds = 0.1%
Total Odds = 99.99%
Didn't quite make 100% due to rounding, but if a single card M19 booster were to be made available, these will be the odds that are going to be displayed.
But why stop here, lets calculate the rate of each single card, too. M19 contains 60 common cards, 55 uncommon, 40 rare, 20 mythic and 10 masterpiece. Assuming all the cards have equal chances of being picked:
Common Card Odds = 54.13% / 60 = 0.9022%
Uncommon Card Odds = 39.15% / 55 = 0.7118%
Rare Card Odds = 5.21% / 40 = 0.13025%
Mythic Card Odds = 1.4% / 20 = 0.07%
MP Card Odds = 0.1% / 10 = 0.01%
Hmmm, nothing special. Common still has the highest rate and MP has the worst. No surprise.
In conclusion, whether you open one booster pack 5 times or a super pack once, the odds will be the same. However, premium packs are a better deal because of the bonus rare card and at a price of 320 crystals, you get 5 times more cards at only 4 times the price of a booster pack.
I hope this clears up any mysteries behind the numbers provided by the game developers. Let me know if you have any questions.
A funny thing happened on the way to D3 Go! Forums, I decided not to click on the Marvel Puzzle Quest links. Instead I decided to check out the other forums here, Magic the Gathering Puzzle Quest and Adventure Time Puzzle Quest. I ended up learning some things.
With Adventure Time Puzzle Quest, there is no online customer support, so the game is just going on. Nothing to see here, so I moved onto Magic the Gathering Puzzle Quest.
On the Magic the Gathering Puzzle Quest forums, I was surprised after reading this for about 30 minutes. Now I have never played Magic the Gathering, I know a lot of my ally mates and friends in MPQ do play this, so I don't understand some of the things there are talking about but one things caught my eye. Here is the link for it so you can see what I am talking about.
Here it seems once a month they have a question and answer session with the Devs. This is mind blowing and to be honest extremely frustrating to see this since this has been something we have asked for many times and for a long time. It was to the point that @Colognoisseur started a thread asking a lot of questions and we actually got some responses. This was a great brief time that we felt that we were being heard and got some direct answers quickly. Everybody treated Will and others with respect and we all were grateful for this, but would like a bit more even if it is once a month. Here are the threads I am talking about.
Now these did die off quickly after 2 months, but the questions still remains, why can we not get this type of communication on MPQ if MTGPQ has it? Are we not a big enough player base? Does the team not have enough time to answer our questions? I am just curious why the difference.
