    Next Thursday boost list is deliciously good.

    I don’t want to start a new thread, because maybe I’m imagining it, but has anyone else noticed a significant increase in the drop rate of 4* star covers from Heroic and Mighty Tokens? 4* covers used to be a rare occurrence, but it feels like anytime I’ve pulled 5 or more tokens in the past couple of weeks, at least 1 cover is a 4*. It’s been great, but I’m wondering if the odds have been tweaked to combat dilution or something.

    I can’t recall the odds exactly on Heroics, but 1:17 seems like it’s the same as before. I don’t have a Mighty to check the odds.

    They would certainly have talked about a change in drop rates if they were doing that. You’re probably just on a hot streak.

    The only modification that makes sense to combat dilution would be using shards and jackpot rates and they already did that. Also I don’t think they will modify the game’s economy in terms of rewards or token pull rates until ascension has been fully in place for at least a few months. (Ha. I say that but we do have some support shards in PvP suddenly.)

    Thanks. It must be a particularly good run of RNG for me then.

    So, all PVPs for Black History Month feature white people?
    Not a bad look, at all.

    I see you that, and raise you LNY vault/store with zero Asian characters...

    Completely agree. What an odd choice to lean into the lunar and dragon aspects this year... characters with "moon" in their name provide vault tokens and vault characters are mostly those that are reptilian or have pet reptiles.

    Yes, but she's not MOON Cindy. It's only characters whose name Start with Moon that give tokens, not characters whose name ends in Moon

    Ah but a case can be made since surnames come first in some Asian cultures

    They covered themselves with Heather Douglas who is of course both moon-y and dragon-y although not Asian-y.

    Throg is in the next boost list. Ascended Throg and Mthor should be pretty fun together.

    If the 5* boost list is correct they have changed the order swapping in Pegor for Dino-Venom?

    We have wildly different ideas of what fun means.
