Did some quick maths on pull rates based on 1 months savings of gems. DC really is quite generous!FORUM
Disclaimer: Only had time to analyze 4 games. Assumes you're past that beginner "oh so many gems!" stage and are in homeostasis. TLDR: Chance of getting a specific desired unit using 1 month of saved premium currency: Destiny Child: 78% (only doing dailies) (low effort) Bang Dream: 8.6% (must play all events) (high effort) FGO: 9.1% (all events) (medium-high effort) Epic 7: 32% (all events) (but 100% at 2.5 months due to mercy pull mechanic) (medium-high effort) Long post: Anyways I started thinking about this after seeing a boatload of bad pulls, and people saying that the rates are bad or DC isin't giving out enough and what not. Since I really love DC, I decided I wanted to show you how this game stands up against others. I did some Google searching to figure out what your chances are for chasing a unit while they are rate up/featured. What I want to show here is that DC is quite generous. The rates are higher than any game I can think of. While I only did 4 games, I doubt y'all can find a game with rates as high as DC in this sense. Epic 7 is the only game that may top DC in it's mercy pull aspect. My analysis is below. So assuming you just do your dailies and nothing else you get 40,740 gems per month ((950 x 30) + (3060 x 4)). This assumes you get Silver III from just dailies. That's 150.88888 pulls per month. That's means for chasing a unit at 1%, you got a 78% chance of getting the unit you want from just 1 month of saving up gems. This completely excludes event gems or special events. Moa Moa Paradice is super good for gem accrual, probably around about another 8000-10000 more crystals. I can't think of any other game that is this friendly to you. Bang Dream gets you around 4,500 gems a week if you participate in everything (events and whatnot). It's 2500 for a 10 pull, so you get 18 pulls per month. Chasing a character is typically around 0.5% since there are usually 2 characters in the rate up banner. So in 1 month of saved gems, you have a 8.6% chance of pulling your desired character. If you only do dailies and logins, I don't think you even save enough for a single 10 pull lol. In FGO, you can farm roughly 24 saint quartz and 4 pull tickets a month. 12 pulls. Chasing a limited servant is at 0.8%, so from 1 month of saving, you have at cumulative chance of 9.1% For epic seven, I just took the numbers from this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/EpicSeven/comments/9xl2wv/some_data_on_how_many_free_pulls_monthly_a_f2p/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share From this, you can get 48 pulls a month (I excluded daily summons since most gachas have this, and you cannot target a specific character) so a cumulative probability is around 32% chance to get the unit you want in a month of saving. HOWEVER, that being said, Epic 7 does have a mercy pull on the 121st time (121 club! ಡ ͜ ʖ ಡ), so you can effectively guarantee your pull from 2.5 months of saving. 2.5 months of dailies in DC is at 98%, so 1 in 50 people will be pissed as hell for DC. Anyways, from my experience E7 is a much heavier time commitment when I played, so I'm not sure how long it takes it get to this point.
