XMas REM Review 2017 – Break what ain’t broke
Seasonal REMs have been very lackluster lately and unable to attract as many people to rolling. This is largely due to horrible top end rates (8 stars being <1% chance) and so much filler (80% silver rate) meaning you end up with FAR more than you’d ever want to see while chasing for a specific 8 star.
However, over the last year we’ve seen changes to this and hopefully Gungho will be more rewarding to players that decide to spend on REMs that are traditionally trappy as I called this very REM last year.
What changed? For one, the silvers were removed from this REM. Yes, you heard that. 80% of rolls were silver in seasonal / collab REMs so this is a nice change. It will be worth looking out for whether the percentages of everything else just get increased or if the golds take on the 80% rate, 6 star gets the ~15%, etc. But one further step is that instead of the 1.25x rate ups for the 8 stars, they’re giving a whopping 3x rates which, taking the roughly 1% we’ve been seeing lately, brings us to 3% on boosted days. This should hopefully take chases from roughly 344 rolls to 100 or so.
