No information has been given. Drop rates for anything good are probably worst out of any chest the game has had. Full of aeon and several old fash types that should have been removed by now. Mount tokens seam super rare compared to how they were. These are just my observations tho.

Alright thanks. Not that it matters but I’m reporting it to apple. There’s a reason they refuse to release it.

Not that I'm aware of but I can assure you drop rates have not improved whatsoever.

I’m tempted to say hero haste lixes drop rates were improved after the Unity update, but this is based solely on other people’s accounts rather than actual data collecting.

My personal opinion is that releasing the drop rates will only make people more upset. I get the whole "legally obligated" aspect, and I'm glad that so many of you are so worried about small legalities. However, what surprises me is the fact that people care so much about finding out just how tiny the chance of getting item X is. It ain't gonna make a difference in your results whether you know that you have a 0.42147% chance of getting a dragon egg, or if it's a complete mystery.

Releasing the drop rates will only cause more complaints, and not solve any issues or make people feel better (aside from the occasional person who bought 2 chests, got an uber rare item, and could then put numbers to their bragging rights). It would just cause more chaos on the forums and unhappiness among the players.

True, but if they are upset, then just don't buy chests. Virtual Realms just needs to follow through with Apple's rules.

They are breaking Apple’s policy. Do you still want updates for CH?

It doesn’t matter about rates but they are still breaking apples policy. I have a call with apple tomorrow but doubt anything will come of it. But they should have to follow the rules as well.

‘Apps offering “loot boxes” or other mechanisms that provide randomized virtual items for purchase must disclose the odds of receiving each type of item to customers prior to purchase.’

They’re going against their terms here
