"Before They Were Famous!" is a special Rare Recruit Rate Up event. In this event you have higher chances to recruit the "Notorius Trio" Luffy, Ace and Sabo event exclusive characters .
As usual, you can access this event through the Tavern.
This event lasts only 1 week and seems to come up once a year.
The event is widely considered to be one of Bandai's worst idea: few people care for those characters, either theme-wise, or ability (they are all relatively weak; only Kid Sabo has some niche utility). It is not recommended you spend any gems for the pulls, unless you really want them for your collection. Game-wise, they have very little utility.
Past event period:
Premiered: Aug.4 2015 (19:00) - Aug.11 2015 (18:59) PST
(during the premier event there was also a rate up for Straw Hat V1 5★ forms, Shanks and Ace)
2nd: May.10 2016 (19:00) - May.17 2016 (18:59) PST
During the 2nd event no other characters were affected by the rate up due to this event, though it coincided with the rate up for all QCK characters.
3rd: June.15 2017 (19:00) - June.19 2017 (18:59) PST
3rd event corresponded with rate up for Straw Hats, meaning that Luffy had a likely higher chance. Still no Kid Law
4th: Jan. 28 2018 (19:00) - Feb. 08 2018 (18:59) PST
The 4th event introduced kid versions of Boa Hancock, Rebecca, Law, Hina, Smoker and Tashigi.
