Not everyone believes it matters, though I disagree.

If you face the star that matches or loses to the element of the crystal, your success rate improves slightly but your skillup and HQ rates decrease slightly, due to the ease. If you face the star that beats your crystal's element, your skillup and HQ rates increase slightly but you break more often, due to the difficulty.
