Can I stop getting 3 hour incubators?

I’ve gotten like 8 of them and two 15 minutes ones. Something better would help a lot Ludia. Thank you. I’m starting to think waiting 3 hours for practically nothing worthy is dumb. We need DNA Multiplier/Increase system based on how much DNA you personally collect.

Battle reward Incubators are on a sequence, you will not get more than two in a row before something else. I believe the pattern is:

3 hour, 15 min, 3 hour, 3 hour, 8 hour :repeat

Every so many 8 hour you have a chance at a 12 or 24 hour.

i think its 3, 3, 15, 3, 3, 3, 8

edit for correction:
3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 12h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 24h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 12h >3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 12h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h > 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 24h and so on…

It’s not exactly a chance at a 12 or 24. The fifth 8 hour incubator will be a 12 the. The fifth will be a 25 then the fifth will be 12 but then the fifth is another 8 which means after the second 12 hour you get 9 8 hour incubators before getting that 12 again.

Based on the known cycle you do definitely get more 3h ones then anything else, but you cant get more than 2 in a row! 3h > 15m > 3h > 3h > 8h. Just remember the number - 31338, its what I do!

And its 25 incubators between each special one!

Edit: With my 31338 number all you need to see is a couple of incubators to know exactly where in the base cycle you’re at!
Like if I got a couple of 3 hours, I know an 8 is coming next! Or if I get a 3h and then a 15m I know to expect a 3h next ^_^!

I agree. 15 minute incubators are better than 3h.

Basically if you win 5 fights a day with a spare incubator slot you’ll get that epic 24hr one every 20 days. I’m fine with the way it is, it’s always confusing when you don’t know how it works as you think it may just be random but it’s not.

Now the challenge is that I need to work out where I am currently in that table. I think i’ll wait until I get a 12 or 24 then i’ll have a pretty good idea as to where I am. I might even keep track using that table, man I feel so sad! :joy:

I battled at least four times a day up until recently and have only gotten 24 hour incubators twice and I have been playing since late August. I actually stopped battling because the rewards aren’t worth the headache. So, I feel you on the three hour incubator frustration. It’s more worthwhile for me to go out and hunt DNA and coins, and far less frustrating than battling. I’m finally at Sorna Marshes and I will be staying there.

That makes sense then, because you get 24hr incubators once a month if you don’t spend cash on speeding them up.

Actually you get them twice a month.

Depends how frequently you battle to get incubators. If you battle 5 times a day you would get 1 every 20 days. However, that then turns into 21 days because one of those days you would have the 24hr incubator processing, therefore an entire day without battling. You also have the same with two 12 hour incubators, so that’s another 24 hours without battling, so really it’s every 22 days on average.

If you battle less than that, even 4 times a day like the other person said it pushes it even further towards 30/31 days, so yes, it pretty much is on average 1 a month.

Obviously I mean if you have an incubator cooking at all times. IIRC it’s 15 days 9 hours without speedups.

I like the 8 hr one more. Last time I got a 24-hr one, and then the next cycle a 12-hr one, both incubators gave me altogether 7k Lythronax DNA. The contents of these 12/24 hr incubators are not predictable but those 3-hr/15-min/8-hr ones must give me incubator dinosaur DNA.
