Box news: Boxes on sale and old friends [Edit]
Oct 12, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
– The Enhanced Split Box is recommended because of its good price and content.
– The drop rate of common cards in the B-Class Parts Special Offer has been reduced by around 10 %. As this also means that the drop rate of (common) B-Class Parts is reduced, this box is even less recommended than before. Players should only buy it as a last resort.
– Before blueprints are completely removed from the game: Players who still have Compact Shuffle Boxes and Compact Split Boxes in their inventory should know that these boxes still grant (common) blueprints. Those who are missing a few blueprints for some vehicles may want to open these boxes now.
Important! Advanced BP Box grants all Blueprints again! [Edit]
Sep 25, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
Not announced by Gameloft, the last update has removed the restrictions for the Advanced BP Box. Players are strongly advised to open their Advanced BP Boxes before the next updates turn the remaining BP vehicles into Token ones—especially if they only need a few more cards to assemble them. As some former Blueprint vehicles are already “out of the pool”, the probability of getting a desired Blueprint has even increased.
V8 drop rate study released [Edit]
Sep 25, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The V8 drop rate study is finished and all data has been evaluated. The study deals with some of the most discussed questions among players:
1. Is there a “golden rule” that players have to keep a certain number of specific cards they need most?
2. Does the game decrease drop rates for needed cards during events?
3. Are drop rates dependent on the vehicles in a player's garage?
4. Does the game withhold cards for recently upgraded vehicles?
Find the answers on the study page!
Festival Coin Pack not fair [Edit]
Sep 22, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
Players who are planning with expected amounts of Festival Coins granted by the Festival Coin Pack should be aware that the box is not fair. The expected value of a fair box would be 7 Coins per box, but the real outcome is much less. See the box page for details.
Recommended: Enhanced Split Box [Edit]
Sep 14, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The Enhanced Split Box which is currently being offered has a good price (A8 tokens full 25 per card), fixed drop rates, clear rules and good content: Parts of the granted cards come in pairs, so it is a good opportunity to even get two desired cards at once. Besides, it is one of the very few boxes that still grant bike-specific cards after the 2019 Spring Update. See the box article for details.
Not recommended: Engine Special-Offer Box [Edit]
Sep 10, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
Caution: The Engine Special-Offer Box which is currently offered is not an engine box. Despite its outer appearance, it is a random box with only three guaranteed engines. Besides, the price has nearly doubled and the drop rate of legendary cards has been reduced. There are many good ways to spend tokens, but definitely not this box.
V12 MPI and i3 Engines in more boxes [Edit]
Sep 7, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The Finish Line Box and the Daily Kit Box now also grant V12 MPI and i3 Engines. See Sixth Anniversary Mini Update for more Pro Kit Box changes.
Engine Boxes now also grant V12 MPI Engines [Edit]
Sep 6, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
One of our WikiProject Statistics data contributors has just confirmed it: Engine Boxes now also grant V12 MPI Engines.
Engine Boxes now grant i3 Engines [Edit]
Sep 5, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The drop rates of Engine Boxes have changed. The good news: They now grant i3 Engines. The bad news: They now grant less legendary cards. It is unclear if Engine Boxes now also grant V12 MPI Engines.
Warning: BMW i8 R&D Basic Kit Box grants almost no drivetrain [Edit]
Aug 27, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The BMW i8 Coupe R&D Basic Kit Box seems to grant extremely few drivetrain cards. Although the sample size is very small, players hoping for drivetrain on the last meters of the R&D should also open 1 Part - B Boxes.
Not recommended: Anniversary Kit Box [Edit]
Aug 22, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The 2019 version of the Anniversary Kit Box has been released and is available for 10 days. It grants 70 Rare and Legendary cards, but the description now lacks the additional “2 cards of each type!”. As the drop rates are the same as in previous versions, it is probable that the box still grants 2 cards of each type, but no Hot Wheels, Legendary Electric or V12 MPI Engines. Given the extremely high price of A8 tokens full 6,400 and the ambiguous description, the box is not recommended.

WikiProject Statistics has reached sample size of 20,000 cards [Edit]

A big thank you to all the data contributors who help WikiProject Statistics become more precise every day!
