    I started this game a month or so after launch & my brother started it a week after, My brother was the first one outta my friends & me who got a 5 Star Base Crystal way back when Lightning Launched & much to my amazement he got Lightning while my only physical was Bartz but that didn't tick me off much then a month or so ago he got 2 Rainbows back to back in 2 Days & got a Gilgamesh/Bartz a few days later I got my first 5 Star Base Crystal during the Dark Destroyers event & I thought it was gonna be a troll but in the end it was a Luneth I was so happy and in a way showed my bro a middle finger, Now a few days ago he got his 4th Rainbow & it was another Lightning to which he replied (I didn't need her, What a waste of a Rainbow) which he also said when he got a Bartz but that didn't matter much & Today while I was away from home he showed up in my friends list with a Noctis I tried to convince myself that this can't be why him? Why is it always him

    I have been doing the 250 Summons ever since it came out while he stopped summoning because his Lapis was finished at one point, Don't you think its kind of unfair that he got 5 while I got only 1 Rainbow even though I summoned at least 50+ Times than him. In the end he's my brother and I love him in real life but I absolutely hate him in game

    Sorry if I wasted your time

    You're right mate, only you and me should get rainbows while everybody else should settle for blues ::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::

    The hate is strong in this case, just knock him down and steal his account, it's your right, shouldn't let him troll you like that ::sarcasm::

    Ask him to show you how to do the new holiday event, while he's fighting give him a Wet Willy and put his units in auto attacks while he recovers, this will give frostor and friends enough time to finish him off after your Wet Willy debuff.

    If you he manages to resist the Wet Willy, alternate between Purple Nurple and Charlie.

    RNG is RNG. That is just the way it is. You might have a month where you get zero then a week where you get three. You can only hope for the best. I could not get a rainbow to save my life for months then just got two in the last 10 days, lightning and white knight noel.

    Lol. Maybe some gaming companies has obtained some info from your Facebook or whatever account; or from location knows you are living in a good neighbourhood; or simply a nationality that got a high capital per head etc. Then they randomised your luck accordingly so u will pull accordingly. Objective is to let you bet till you lose till your threshold amount before u get what u want. >•<

    Install 3rd party software hacks into his phone, tell him that you are sorry and you wanna help him become stronger. Then report him and get him banned, complete with screenshots of the hacking.

    This game is so unfair, i saw in this forum and in youtube people getting 2 noctis in a 10+1 pull, or with the daily, and others with 3 or more noctis while there are other people wasting more than 20k lapis for nothing ( i speak about noctis cause it is the actual banner but it is the same in all banners)

    250 Summon=Clyne
    Ticket=(Golden Crystal)Luka
    Ticket=(Blue turned to Gold & then Rainbow)Dark Fina

    And I got a White Knight Noel too, My friend opened my 250 Summon & it was a Golden Crystal that turned into a Rainbow

    Well if it helps... a friend of mine who plays this game got the characters I wanted, Noctis and Lightning.... and I ended up getting the characters that he wanted, Elza and Dark Fina... in the end RNG is gonna even out...

    Then you accidentally get Orlandu and laugh at all his trash. Or you have a hot and amazing girlfriend while he doesn't. Luck balances itself in many ways. Beware.
    RNG is RNG, it can turn 180 degrees in a second.

    I have 4 rainbows myself, but I understand how you feel.

    My son is playing angry bird epic, and it has summon meter, when it's full you're guaranteed one of the best equipment. Basically I hope our summon gate is like that, has a meter that guarantee rainbow every 30 pulls for example (rainbow here doesn't necessarily mean a base 5*), it can even have a lower cap, 10 pulls minimum to have a chance to get a rainbow. Then whenever you get a rainbow, the summon meter reset.

    They'll never implement this, but one can fantasize, right? (note I don't even write: one can hope / try)

    When BF had that pull 10 guaranteed featured unit, I always puledl 10, later they changed it to 20, and with lapis in BF was not as generous as here, spending was the only way to keep up with it, but I gladly spent. Not this one....yes I've bought some, but I am very very careful about it.

    Why all these fuss? Because RNG doesn't even itself out, like any distribution, it follows a bell curve, when the average player has 10 rainbows, some lucky guys could have 20+, and on the other end on the spectrum some still couldn't have it (or if that's too mean, then 1). Summon meter has the power to cut these tails, and make the distribution between 5 and 15 for example. It rewards people who spend, people who plan their lapis use (which are usually core players), and reduces the likelihood of a rage quit.
