The box info (unofficial term) is a gameplay element first introduced in Asphalt 8: Airborne with the Fall Out Boy Update. It shows the drop rates of a Pro Kit Box when a player taps on its info icon ( or ).
As the screen only shows percentages without further information on their meaning, the box info often leads to misunderstandings among players.
- The displayed drop rates are the average ratio of a card type (usually its rarity) to the total number of cards in the box in the long run, when a large number of boxes is opened. Formally speaking, they are expected values of average relative frequencies.
- Drop rates are not the same as probabilities, except when the box content is completely random (i. e. when the box has no official or hidden guarantees).
- Drop rates do not guarantee the same percentages for every single opened box. Exceptions are, to a certain extent, Championship, R&D and EDD boxes.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
Guarantees like "At least 1 will be Rare!" or "one V8 Engine card guaranteed" are already included in the values.
Festival and World Tour boxes
Bundles and Supplies cannot be stored in the pending boxes list of a player's inventory. Instead, their content comes as "box in the box". This can be counterintuitive.
Unlike in Asphalt 8,
- tapping on the box instead of the icon will not display the box info but buy the box without further notice.
- infos for unopened boxes in the inventory cannot be displayed. Tapping on a box will open it immediately.
The box info in Asphalt Xtreme has a purple icon () that is displayed next to the box name when a player taps on a basic box in the shop. Instead of displaying the drop rates for the chosen box, it leads to overview tables of drop chances, a term with a different meaning than drop rate, introduced and used exclusively in Asphalt Xtreme.
