We’re aware that many players were unhappy when receiving a duplicate bot from their Crystals, particularly with duplicate 4-Star Bots. Based on this feedback we’re launching the 5-Star Character Crystal which unlocks a new, guaranteed 5-Star Bot each time!
We do have further plans for duplicates in the future. You'll be the first to hear about new developments in this area when the time comes!
