    This really should have been fixed by now.  I've already stopped playing daily, and pretty close to dropping this down to casual once a week thing now if the daily chest is going to be 50/50 for me.
    We've got improvements coming in the next update, which we stated in this thread (and others) several times. Patch notes will be discussed on tomorrow's IA episode, so tune in!

    These are great questions. We're still building the feature so I can't comment too much on the details like this, but just to clear up a few concerns:

    For trap cards it's in excess of T7 only. If you have thousands of cards for a trap you've never upgraded, there may be an issue where you have more than the TOTAL needed to go from T1-T7 and I don't know what would happen then, but there's nothing to worry about if you have a few dozen or hundred extra cards and you're upgrading in the lower tiers. You won't start receiving gibs until you have too many cards to use.

    The trap parts are a bit more complex, because like you said, different parts have different "caps" but we intend to be able to provide gibs for trap parts that are received beyond your ability to put them into a trap.

    It's always going to be possible to receive cards for traps that are already at T7 or trap parts you are already at the cap for, whether from a hero chest or a 3* or 5* chest or a Premium Shoppe chest. That won't change. We're still working on the whole process, but you will get something in return in that case (probably gibs, but we're still working out the details).
