I received 4 from 155 packs (at king level).

I see a lot of people who got around 1/30 primal packs. (930 packs, 30 primals) If I had gotten one more primal pack I'd be right at 1/30 as well. Wonder if that is the average ratio?

Pretty sure the primals people are getting are based on reward tiers, not luck or rng.

You'd have to redeem the codes you received/will receive via e-mail. Either that or purchase Platinum and buy from the in-game store.

I got 5 from my 155 (Since you get 1 for just being Knight and above)

I got 7, 6 from 155packs and the extra 1. I just hope when the fix the guild master code i wont have to re-roll what i got from my grand king.

It's a bit of both. Certain tiers get one primal pack but also our reward packs had a chance of being primal.

I have to say some people are getting waaaay more primals than others :D

You may want to save your Primal packs in case there ends up ever being a tournament that uses primal packs. I remember it being an idea from Kickstarter that was being considered anyway.

I think the tiers that didn't get ALL of the starters are pending a way for them to let you select the starters you want

Got 4 primal total (King). Server issues prevented me from opening them tonight though.

Edit: Erionn wasn't bragging, just posting his results as per the request of the topic. If you want to be salty at anyone, be salty at me as I'm both the one who bought him the slacker backer as a present, and the one always pushing him to post more on the forum and be a more active member of the community.

Having said that... I was pretty shocked at how lucky he was. I do happen to know what cards he got out of said primals though and he did not exactly get the most impressive legendaries and rares if that's worth anything, really only one good legendary in both packs combined.

5 total from Grand King + Squire + Captain. I'm a little pissed at myself for entering in my Squire code. I intended to give it away but forgot in my blind joy at CB starting.

I'm at work and I haven't even loaded the client yet =/. Apparently there haven't been any issues with that. Didn't expect there to be with GameForge involved.

I'm hoping to get 4/5, excluding 1 gimmie... I guess I'll let you guys know when I "crack" them for the fun of it.

I got one when I entered the GK code. Given that I was guaranteed that one... that means I opened 0/155? This bodes well for my RNG.

Why? They may have pledged after you, but they still did pay for the packs. You have the same chance to get Primals as they do, the person who got 2 Primals out of 25 got pretty lucky. As did the guy who got 8 primals at King tier.

I bought 2 Slacker Backers, so that's 50 boosters. I go zero Primals :-P So you can take solace in that atleast

How are you guys redeeming your codes during server maintenance? I can't log into the HEX client.

Edit: My client was probably too old, it had a lot of art assets labelled "Alpha" so I'm reinstalling.

Since when you buy a booster pack (from the store) or the ones from the rewards has a chance of giving you a primal pack with that booster pack it would indeed be insane to have 155 primal packs and 155 booster packs for a King. Also I would probably be tempted to contact customer support that something wasn't right on my code.

Xenavire
04-24-2014, 10:36 AM
Other than my guaranteed one, I have 2/156 (bought a pack before code redemption.) Not too bad, as I will be giving those primals to friends most likely.

Heh, sure, but I warn you, those packs are accounted for - I don't even have enough, really, but I have some hope that they will get a few primals between them to make it fair.

Well, if the chance of a primal is 0.5%, then the chance of that would be 1 in 200^155, which is pretty slim. It's more likely you'll be hit by a asteroid this year.

At a 2% rate, with the 1 guaranteed for king and above, getting 4 packs for 155 is pretty much precisely average, so I suppose I can't complaint.

Basically if you get one every 50 packs you're in solid shape.

Ooh you may have mended my heart - perhaps I WAS taking crazy pills! I thought that you had to open a pack to see if you had a chance at getting a primal, but from your response I guess it must be that any time you receive a pack there is a CHANCE that it could be primal? Ok that also makes sense. But now I am sad again - because I only have 2 and I think that is just what everyone got :(

Yeah, you don't need to open your packs to get the primals generated from them. Primals are given to you by chance when you acquire a pack, so you just need to redeem your code and note how many packs you've received.

How do you know if the pack you have is primal? Do you actually have to open the pack to find out if it is primal or not? For example on my account I have 155 regular packs and 5 primal packs I believe. Is there a chance that from those 155 regular packs, some will be primal?

You already got the primal packs - 4 of them, plus the 1 guaranteed primal pack you got as a KS backer.

Whenever you buy (or win, or redeem codes for) packs, they have a chance to also give you a primal pack. So when you redeemed your code and got the 155 packs, 4 of those packs produced primal packs for you. You don't have to open any of the normal packs to get the primal packs, they are deposited into your account at the same time.

no it will be an additional pack (as far as i know)... hm but maybe it is only when you
purchase packs =/ i dont know how it works with the ones you get with the code.

When you enter your code, a brief summary of what you get for it is displayed. If you scroll, you will see the number of packs there was as well as the number of primals.

Primals are indeed additionnal packs, they don't replace the normal packs that generated them.

Im confused. When I redeemed my code I have 155 boosters and 3 Primals? I thought King tier only got 1 primal pack from the KS beta? So does this mean when opening my other 155 theres a chance they could turn into Primals as well? So right now I am sitting at 3 + x?

This is not quite right. You don't get new ones for opening them, only when you first GET the packs.

Primal Math

You have a 2% chance every time you get each Booster from CZE at the point it hits your inventory. Notably, that means that even if you buy 50 boosters, you actually have a ~36.42% chance of not seeing a primal. Over time, and with enough pack purchases, you'd see your actual rate approach the 2% chance.

The formula to calculate your Primal chance given a drop rate ( x ) over any given number of booster purchases ( y ) is this:

1 - ( ( 1 - x ) ^ y )

So....
50 Packs: 1 - ( ( 1 - 0.02 ) ^ 50 ) = 63.58% chance of getting at least one, 36.42% chance that you won't see one
100 Packs: 1 - ( ( 1 - 0.02 ) ^ 50 ) = 86.74% chance of getting at least one, 13.26% chance that you won't see one

Furthermore... there's actually a 4.37% chance that someone getting 155 packs (the most common KS amount) won't see a primal :( So, it sucks when it happens, but it's not actually a crazy rare outcome.

Pretty useful calculator @ http://stattrek.com/online-calculator/binomial.aspx


Probability of Success: 0.02
Trials: Number of Regular Packs
Number of Successes: Number of Primal Packs (1 for the calculations above, but you can put in the number you'd like to see, e.g. 4 in 100 packs, and see what the probabilities are)

For reference, Daer getting 11/155 in that one king tier of his had a 0.02% chance of happening (it will happen to 1 in every 5,000 backers, statistically). You lucky bastard. :)

On the flipside, roughly 1 in every 23 people who redeem a single 155 booster code will get zero primals (the 4.37% Colin referenced).

MY primal rate is now 3/180 (I am weak). 1.67% of my packs were primal, which is below the average (of course! :)). There was a 21.4% chance of me having that ratio, statistically.
