Converting skill drops into gems means that from the chest you would normally get the skill that your character already has you get a random ammount of gems instead (1-15 if I'm not mistaken).
And yes - gems still drop in place of already possessed skills.
Ps that comment was refering to when they announced the end of ultimate rising pack I dumped the saved gems into ultimate rising pack that would have otherwise been blown on neo impact. Now I can take my time on neo impact for mirror wall.
You guys are noobs. Of course buying one by one isn't meant to increase chance of getting something. If you get a sphere kuriboh for example in first pack itself then you basically wasted 450 Gems. If you buy one by one, you can reset immediately after you get what you want. Lol
No the point they are making is that if you are farming a pack for one card and you buy a ten pack, and on your first pack you open thay card, then you wasted 450 gems cause you didn't need the other 9 packs
I typically save my gems until I reach maximum or near-maximum before going to the shop. No sense in wasting them if you're not at at least 9900 anyway.
This game is such bullshit p2w i would rather have just spent money on buying the game if it meant i didnt have to buy packs and shit. The game is definitely worth a few decent bucks to outright pay for, for exmaple i could see myself paying 10-15 bucks for this game. Unheard of for an app but its worth it. BUT, the packs are not worth it. Not only are the boxes filled with mostly garbage and non competitive archtypes but you only get 3 cards per pack and the gem cost is 50!!!!!
4 days and i got 2100+ lol you must suck at leveling up characters people get 9999 gems in 2 months do the math if i keep leveling up characters you should have 9999 gems pretty quick in the last 2 and a half weeks i spent 3,000 so add 3000 to my 2100 now add thats 5000 gems... in 2 and a half weeks lol 2 months isnt bad but you should be able to get it faster even if i dont get it before 2 months
the problem with the game is that they r sellimg the wrong things they are supposed to sell things like alternative skins or something like holographic cards or mats or sleeves. they shouldn't be making money from selling the one thing you need to get ahead in this game...CARDS. everyone should have to grind for the cards not at all pay for them. that way makes the community better because it'll show you actually grinders for cards. konami could make money off of other things in game like what I said above, they could also sell alternative art cards that give extra XP as an incentive. its not hard to make a game last forever, its so many cards that are not in the game, they just need to tighten up and give a damn
