Cantina drops wrong?

When i try to do the cantina node for incomplete signal data it is only rewarding me with two data shards.
But it says Bonus 4 is this a bug?

    Nope

    It shows possible rewards, not guaranteed

    You can get up to 4 per node simmed
    Doesn't mean you'll get them

    Sure it is. The way it has it listed is 4. Meaning you will get 4, not 0-4 which means you have a chance up to 4. Kuiil is shown as 2. Meaning you will get 2. Not a chance at 2. Just these guys being money grubbing and stealing your money by falsely advertising drops. Edit...i gave them too much credit and wrote 1-4 not 0-4

    Are you new to the game?

    "Potential rewards"

    Sorry but if it says you can potentially get 4 shards, then its understood you can get none or 4. I agree that its misleading.

    Had they put in the range of potential 0-4 , then it would be clear. But stating the potential drop is only 4, then one would logically assume it's either 4 or 0. Then again, logic is more of a star trek thing.

    Yeah im new so i expect the drops to be what they say they are before i spend my gems. Why cant they do 0-4 like they do for other rewards that vary?
  • Its like that for every single node in the game.

    On normal (non-double drop days), do you expect to get 2 signal date every single time you battle? It shows a range, if you successfully get the item.

    Why yes, yes i do. Never get it but each day i start out with "this is going to be my lucky day".

    By your logic, it’s not possible to get zero either

    Disagree. By stating potential drop , I indicated you could get 4, or not. Quite like the current in-game display
    Edit: if you are referring to the potential 0-4 quote, fair enough. I questioned myself after I posted that if anyone would call me on it that it should be 1-4 potential drops. If that's the case, yes. You're right. Gosh darn my haste.

    They don’t state zero, you’re just assuming it’s possible while at the same assuming 1-3 are not possible. 1 and 3 can logically be eliminated since they are odd numbers on a double drop day. So where’s the logic in assuming 2 isn’t possible?

    Would you rather get “0 or 4,” or “0 or 2 or 4?”

    I think I edited that last response into spam block. Basically double drops = if you got a drop, its double. There no statement saying "chance of double drops".
    @Gifafi would rather it state the actual drop possibilities as opposed to either 4 or nothing (for this example)

    Description clarity is not CG’s forte, but I also understand they have limited space being a mobile game

    It’s not a “chance of double drops” it’s “double drops on a chance of shards.”

    So if you get a shard drop, it’s doubled. I mean, I’m all for cg being able to word things more clearly.

    'Potential drops'!
    Never make the mistake of believing forbearance equates to acceptance, or that all positions are equally valid.

    It kinda is.....


    There are how many places in the game where it will list the possible drops as 1-3 and other places where it's lists 4 and we have come to expect it to mean 0-4


    The problem is inconsistency across the game. Cg is not good at this at all.


    It should not be a guessing game on the drops where you have to eventually learn what their intent is.

    That's why they teach math at school.

    0 times 1 is = 0
    0 times 2 is = 0
    0 times 4 is = 0
    0 times 1 Billion still = 0

    What is shown on screen is not the drop number, also not the possible drop number, it is the "TIMES" number.

    0-4 means it has a chance to drop 0 1 2 3 or 4 items not 0 x whatever number, learn simple ingrish before trolling.

    Also kisakee thanks for proving our point. You will always get 0 shards or 4 shards when you get champion shards. Not some random number in between.

    It's still not false advertising.
