Major League Baseball Champions (MLBC) features what's called an inheritance system. In this article, we'll break it down for you and help you understand the way it works and why it works that way.
The Basic Premises
Whenever you play an MLBC Reward Figure as a Game Card, you're increasing that figure's chances of earning various attributes. Bear in mind that we said Reward Figure; only Figures that you receive through the MLB Champions reward system have the ability to generate attributes through the Inheritance system.
Here's how it works:
The system first decides which MLBC Player will be minted as a Reward Figure. The system calculates this process based on the MLBC Player Rarity Index (PRI); the higher the PRI value, the lower the chances, and vice versa.
The system then decides which Stance will be selected for the Reward Figure program. For example, if a Player is a pitcher, the system will decide for a pitching stance. Once the stance has been determined, the system determines the position of the player.
In short, the system first chooses the player, then its stance, and then it's position.
Once the system determines those characteristics, it proceeds to determine the rarity value of the Reward Figure's base. The base can be of Epic, Ultra Rare, Rare, Uncommon and Common rarity value.
The system first rolls for the Epic value, and if the roll is successful, it chooses that value. If not, it proceeds to roll the subsequent rarity value until the roll is successful.
When the base is selected, the system focuses on choosing the glove and bat. The inheritance system chooses gloves and bats the same way it chooses bases, starting the rolls from the rarest and proceeding to the most common item values.
In the end, the inheritance system determines the Game Event of each MLBC game. All MLBC Game Events have the same value, meaning that the system will choose the Game Event type randomly (assuming the event is available for the match).
What's the Role of This System?
Having specific values on a Game Card automatically increases its chances of receiving attributes based on the values it already has. So for instance, a Game Card with Bronze-based Figures has a higher chance of receiving Bronze Base, and having a Bronze Base increases the chances of receiving Bronze bats and gloves.
This allows you to tune the Inheritance System when a new Reward Figure is generated. If your Game Card has Epic attributes it will have higher chances of generating a new Reward Figure with epic attributes. Most importantly, this system doesn't decrease your chances of earning rare attributes, since the rolling starts from the top to bottom on the rarity scale!
