Booster Packs Rigged?

#1Bender1012Posted 4/22/2013 5:58:40 PM
So I saved up 75,000 for a Gold booster... got Bane, okay. Not as cool as Batman or Superman, but okay.

Save up another 75,000 for another Gold booster... get Bane again. Way less cool than getting another character, but fine. Now I just have a ridiculous Bane.

Save up another 75,000 for ANOTHER Gold booster... yup, that's right, Bane AGAIN. WTF? Is the game rigged to give you the same character more often so you pony up to buy different ones? Anyone else experience anything like this? Am I going to get another !@#$ Bane with my next Gold booster?

No. Mine have been more evenly distributed.

I think lower level gold characters have a higher probably to showing up. I bought 3 packs so far myself, hoping for another batman. Got Regime Superman, Bane and Black Adam instead.

Off the top of my head, the most common to rarest gold cards.

Joker (Insurgency)
Adam (Regime)
Wonder Woman (Regime)*
Batman (Default)*
Batman (Insurgency)
Superman (Regime)
Harley (Arkham)
Batman (Beyond)
Superman (Prison)

*more or less equal chance

I used the unlimited coin hack and did a very unscientific study, I bought a whole bunch of gold booster packs, enough to get each gold card to level 5 elite, and these were the results:

Bane - 104 (16.5%)
Black Adam (Regime) - 96 (15.2%)
Joker (Insurgency) - 93 (14.7%)
Batman - 75 (11.9%)
Wonder Woman (Regime) - 63 (10%)
Batman (Insurgency) - 57 (9%)
Doomsday - 52 (8.2%)
Superman - 38 (6%)
Superman (Regime) - 31 (4.9%)
Superman (Prison) - 9 (1.4%)
Batman (Beyond) - 6 (0.9%)
Harley Quinn (Arkham) - 5 (0.8%)
Total - 629

@rmh1072 - I think a 629 sample size is about as good a statistical study as we are going to get.

TC - For the record, I got Black Adam, Bane, Doomsday, Doomsday, Bane. I'd agree with you that only getting Bane is bad luck, and I'd also agree with other people who say Bane seems to be one of the more common gold cards.

I just tried this morning for first time and got Regime Supes. Really wanted a Batman but can't complain yet I guess.

I've gotten 5 gold packs. I got Batman (Regular), Wonder Woman, Batman again, Doomsday, and Black Adam in that order. Pretty lucky I guess.

I guess I am lucky. I've only gotten one Gold Booster Pack and I obtained Batman Beyond from it.

The funny part in all of it is the 3 hard ones to get from random packs are actually the cheapest to buy not from Gold Packs, I would advise just buying them if you happen to get them unlocked at that rate.
