How Powerful Are They?
For example, a 5-star Champion at rank 3, level 45 will have slightly higher stats than a 4-Star Champion at rank 5, level 50.
5-Star Champions are unique in that they introduce an interactive special attack system.
Third Special Attack
5-Star Champions introduce a quick time event into the game when using their third special attack or being attacked by an enemy Champion’s special attack.
Once enough energy has been stored, tapping on the special attack button will initiate the cutscene for your Champion’s attack as normal.
A bonus bar will then be displayed at the bottom of the screen. This bar will fill from left to right towards the marker near the middle of the display.
Tapping the bar when the meter is as close as possible to the white marker will produce a bonus that strengthens your attack, or mitigates the damage of your opponent's special. Stopping the bar in the yellow zone will create a partial bonus, while tapping on the white zone, will create a full bonus for your attack or defense.
Where Do I Get a 5-Star Champion?
You can find them as:
- Guaranteed drops from 5-Star Hero Crystals
- Event quests rewards
- Alliance events rewards
- Grandmaster Crystals (rare drop)
Collect crystal shards from duplicate 4-Star Champions, rewards from event quests, and alliance events.
Can I Get the Champion I Want from the Kabam Support Team?
The short answer is no. We will NOT be able to add a 5-Star Champion to your account, as this is unfair to the rest of the community. We do not make exceptions to this rule.
However, there are many ways to get them in the game:
- Getting enough 5-Star Crystal Shards for a crystal
- Purchasing Uncollected Featured Hero Crystals and Grandmaster Crystals (rare drop)
You can find 5-Star Crystal Shards as rewards from:
- Alliance event rewards
- Duplicating 4-Star Champions
- Event quests
How Do the Drop Rates Work?
We strongly believe in keeping The Contest fair for all of our players, and we do not create specific drop rates for individuals.
The drop rate indicates the likelihood that you will receive the specified item.
In relation to the game, if you buy a Premium Hero Crystal, and the drop rate for a 4-Star Champion is 2%, this does not mean that if you buy 100 Premium Hero Crystals you are guaranteed to receive a 4-Star Champion two times. This means that you have a 2% chance to get a 4-Star Champion each time you open that crystal. If you purchase one Premium Hero Crystal, you could receive a 4-Star Champion, or you could purchase multiple Premium Hero Crystals and not receive any 4-Star Champions.
Where Will I Find This Information?
Note: While the following information only applies to purchased crystals, the same crystal obtained any other way in the game will have the same drop rates.
Within the game, when you go to any of the stores to purchase a crystal, you will find an info icon.
When you tap on this icon, you will see the drop rates for the items within the crystal. The drop rates will be displayed as percentages. Below is an example of how and where this information will be displayed:
