I don’t know if this my imagination or not but 6 of 7 of my recent but rare 4 stars came from gems that were purchased. Free tokens seem to invariably produce a lesser result my 2 last ‘genuinely free’ epic tokens; hero and troops gave me totally worthless food and the 4th yellow three star troop duplicate, seemingly, in a row. I went out of my comfort zone, shelled out money and it is telling me they were free so I don’t want to use them while the server and programmed number generator are telling me that.
If someone from SGG could confirm that all epic tokens are created equal and are treated by the software exactly the same as if I spent money on them (which I did out of sheer frustration) and not as just an icon that represents a paid for token but with a lesser value due to being a giveaway?
Thank you in advance.
