Howdy folks, I've been playing the Bronze Arena for a few days now.  I've won about the normal amount of cards from the normal spins, but I have yet to win a single "special spin" card.  I'm sure I've played somewhere between 50 and 100 5-game matches.  Are the special spins really hard to win cards from, or am I just having a streak of really awful luck?

i'd like to say luck, but that's taking it easy. http://elementscommunity.org/forum/farming-studies-and-statistics/arena-special-spin-droprate/ http://elementscommunity.org/tools/CuCN/sspin.php This could help you a bit, but you'll need to learn how to use it. Maybe it is just luck, but out of 50 to 100, i'd think otherwise. Whatever it is, best of luck

That seems statistically extremely unlikely, to say the least.  If you don't care what card you win (i.e. try for one that you have, say, two matches of already even if you don't want it) I'm pretty sure it is over 50%, from personal experience, and probably more like 75%.  If you target a specific card you need and ignore the rest, it's going to drop a fair amount, depending on what you're aiming for.  Personally, I have also had problems mixing up the air and aether shards because they look so similar to my eyes, and there's been more than a few times where I've found myself staring at what I thought was a match of 3 but was actually a mix of the two shards upon closer inspection.

Thanks for the replies guys.  :)  I've only been playing in bronze arena, so I'm only getting the one spin.  I've had a few "teasers" of getting the first two matching something nice like a Pulverizer, but not one win so far.  I guess I shouldn't complain because the electrum seems to come much, much faster in the arena than in the AI3 matches I had been playing.
