Crest drop rate

  • Crest drop rate

    Has the crest drop rate been drastically reduced? I went from 15-20% during Pictish attack event to barely 2%. I have not changed tactics and mostly attack lvl 7, 9, and 10. Hoping this is a glitch because after the refresh rate was reduced to 6 mins and then screwed up I cannot find any crests. Kabam please fix!

    It has not been reduced, actually we are about to increase it again

      Sure seems like it was reduced recently. For a few days after the increase was announced last week, I'd get a crest here and there. Now the last four days, I've done a bunch of attacks on high level pict camps and gotten nothing.

        Random crests have been showing up in my round tower... I don't attack Picts and only got one report from attacking a player that I found one. I have 6....

          crest drop sucks

          Last 3 days, I got one every 30-35 hits! WTF is this? A friend of mine got it more frequently so I thought my account had a problem and complained to kabam. Not that they ever cared about my complaints and replied, still ... Seriously kabam, get ur act together. At this drop rate I would no longer be interested in playing the game when everyone else has a second city. Occasionally I got 1-2 from other players I hit, but not much. I know this one is a bug as confirmed in another thread.

            Did a number of additional attacks, with no sign of any crests showing up. Something has definitely changed from the first few days after they said they increased the rate of crest drops. Don't know why the rate would fall of a cliff the way it did, but I bet I've done at least 25 attacks now on 8 or higher Pict camps, without a single crest dropping. Guess I'll build up my troops to be ready for when they hopefully fix this.

              Crests

              This is ridiculous ! During the raining crests event I got 60 crests in 2-3 days . And 7 in the week or so since . It's pointless to say ur gonna double the crests I get this weekend if I don't get any . I've hit 19 camps today ..... Spread out .... With a lvl 8 round tower and a lvl 42 knight and have not gotten one single crest !!! Kabam u can say what you want that the drop rate is the same or whatever but out of 20-30 people I've talked to about it all of them and they all have had little to NO luck

                I confirm, it really sucks. Drop rate is too low. I had 50 during event, got 6 so far, approx same attacks...

                  we actually decided to keep the drop rate at the "event's level" so it has not been reduced since the event ended... but don't tell anybody it's a secret

                    Agree. Drop rate dramatically reduced for me as well. Have level 9 tower, and have approx 5-10% drop rate for crests. This is not what it was in last event, and is not an acceptable level for this event...not worth the thousands of troops required to just get one crest.

                      Bottom line is crests do not drop. 1 crest every 10-20 attacks is too low, and now crests are being taken when players attack? So you NEVER get ahead...every cret you earn is quickly taken away. Fix the crest drop rate PLEASE, of if not then make crests immune to being stolen, so that your hard earned expensive crests are not raided by other players. THIS SUCKS THE WAY IT IS...ARE YOU LISTENING?!?!???!? PLAYERS ARE EXTERMELY FRUSTRATED BY THIS!!

                        Either you are lying ricccardo or you have a bug...either way you need to fix this. The drop rate is NOT high as it was in the last event and as you are hinting at here. Stop the bs and tell the truth.

                          I think they nerfed the drop rate

                          My experience is the same as above posters. I earned about 60 during the increased rate. Now. I will hit a camp 40 times and not get one crest.

                          Also, it would be nice to use the crests to buy a Divinne Inspiration. Say 50 per.

                            I posted yesterday complaining .....and everyone is saying that something is wrong and kabam just reposts it's same tired reply meant to blow smoke up our *****!! I think your customers know if the drop rate is down kabam . I have now hit well over 100 camps since the event started yesterday and have claimed 6 crests !!?! Tens of thousands of troops, hours on the game , for 6 crests ??? But during the last event I'd get 6 every hour or so . If this keeps up I'm just deleting this game .....I'll just have to learn angry birds I guess . I swore I wouldn't pay for second city ....spent enough money here . So ....kabam ...listen good .... Fix it or u lose alot of players ( cause I am FAR from alone on this

                              Amen. Kabam, if you have a bug, the admit it and fix it. But don't lie to us, saying the drop rate is high--that is simply not true!
