I caught a gold box today and my amount of crystals have not been updated yet. I closed the game and ran it again to see if that works, it does not.
What's more i am not receiving any crystals from battles, only battle containers and missions
Since the new update, you wont get crystals by playing ranked battles.Only on quick play (if you got maximum charges) or from the containers.Gold boxes wont give crystals either but blueprints for modules. For more information read the change log here http://tankix.com/en/news/the-arms-race/
