    I think these will be changes that take the game in a good direction for both the company ($$$) and for the players. Hopefully it will turn out to be a win/win.

    I just hope after this update that they can fix outposts/raids to where they will be fun again. It feels like the other major problem in the game that needs major course correction. They spent a lot of man power developing that aspect of the game and nobody wants to play it. Hope they'll listen to people's criticisms and suggestions.

    "Teeceezy just confirmed that the current traits (bronze, silver and gold) will convert to a particular level and will post more in depth information at a later time.  Good stuff!"

    It's been mentioned/discussed multiple times in this thread.

    As of 1.10, legendaries will get a 5th trait and epics will get a 4th. These traits will be random on updating to 1.10.

    The traits system will change from Bronze, Silver and Gold levels to levels 1-5. I will post in-depth information about this at a later (but not too late!) date.

    Bill_ZRT said:

    @Teeceezy - you mentioned that bronze, solver and gold traits will be replaced with a trait level. Will existing traits be converted to equivalent levels? Something like Bronze to 1, Silver to 3 and Gold to 5 (or even Bronze to 1, Silver to 2 and Gold to 3 with us having to upgrade to levels 4-5)? Thanks!

    Yes, they will @Bill_ZRT. I'll get back to all of you with an in-depth look into it closer to update time.

    But it’s not the better wolf that wins. It’s the one you feed.

    Makes the game more complicated?? Is this true?
  • OvidmikelOvidmikel Member Posts: 965
    @SlickRick yea the ole ESPN kicked in I guess lol yea you're set for this update. I only have 3 legs outa 20 spots the other two warriors and a shooter 2 are max 19 the other 17 are epics and over half are max 19. So I really ain't hurting for good survivors but we all want the legendary lol. I'm sure it gonna take alot of playing to go from epic to leg but give another aspect to the game. But update 2.1 will be right around the corner . Then we'll all be enjoying lvl our teams up instead of having to try our luck in my case EPIC LUCK LOL

    @Sipher07

    How can you say it's going to be more complicated until you see it live?

    And there is a thread already about the changes here...no need for a new one: http://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/11601/survivor-progression-changes-official-discussion-thread#latest

    @Teeceezy @eetu @zbot Can we get a possible merge?

    i think bronze silver gold is pretty good for now..It allows for a simple elegance to the game and a bit of chance rather than being bogged down with not only common>legendary level and xp level upgrades but also excessive micromanaging of 1-5 levels of a particular trait. Sometimes its just fun to cater to the medium casual player rather than hardcore micromanagement grinders.

    And how about replayed old misssons at user matched/exploratory level mission difficulty for diversity in grinding!!

    @Teeceezy will it cost more xp to upgrade a current epic or legendary survivor or any survivor after the upgrade? (If an epic level 10 costs X xp and a legendary X+Y, a survivor after the upgrade will cost more or less?)

    @Teeceezy @eetu @TK-421 @OldGoth

    Seriously guys , bravo!

    If you add chance of getting tokens in gold crates I'm worried about my social life after update lol

    Thanks for this .

    With the new sistem my epic warrior level 11/18 will be 11/19 automatically? so I should start update him right now. Its correct?
  • NCDawgFanNCDawgFan Member Posts: 2,070
    All my 18/18 survivors that i use all the time and i was dreading having to retire are now safe. Great news @Teeceezy, thanks.

    In some ways it adds depth and makes it a bit more complicated, e.g. adding tokens, but in others it streamlines things, e.g. the concept of a level cap is now gone.

    This explains why probability of epic/legendary pulls from radio calls was decreased.


    No they weren't.

    I wonder if 15 - 1 calls will be better for farming tokens than 15 calls now.. guess it depends on the starting value of the 5 different survivor types. If you are collecting hunter tokens to max upgrade a hunter with really nice traits , single radios may have much more value than they do already

    OK, what about this situation.
    Training level 10.
    Epic Survivor current at 10/14. No traits unlocked yet.

    After upgrade, I'm guessing they're now going to be 10/10.
    Does that mean they'll also get all their traits unlocked?

    In the blades bundle can get with a maximum level 18th After the update , this weapon will be outdated? Makes little sense to buy this.
  • ambienceambience Member Posts: 92
    @Teeceezy / @eetu: what about survivors who currently have max levels higher than the training level? If their max levels are going to be downgraded, will the level at which their traits are gained also downgraded?
    Sorry that this is a repeat of a previous question from me, but hopefully this is better worded!

    Teeceezy said:


    (If we scrap existing survivors after update, I assume we can collect tokens too?...or is this solely collected from radio calls?)


    Yes, any existing survivors that are retired will now give tokens of that class instead of XP. Retire a hunter - get hunter tokens and so on.

    Hmm, question here: how about upgraded survivors?
    Like my lvl 16-20 uncommon warrior is worth 7k xp while my maxed out leg 18-18 warrior is worth 763.65k XP. Do they give more tokens?
  • NecroboogieNecroboogie Member Posts: 1,108
    I think what people are asking is how are traits going to be unlocked now- the new chars may have them already unlocked but needing to be upgraded, but what about current survivors with traits that unlock at certain levels? Will their traits remain locked til unlock level or will they be revamped to be concurrent with the new survivors?

    I guess:
    Gold = lvl 5
    Silver = lvl 3
    Bronze = lvl 1

    Current traits stay.

    New instant traits will be
    - silver aka lvl 3 for legs
    - bronze aka lvl 1 for epics

    I have a question @Teeceezy

    if we have a 5th traits this is as follows

    Melee: Iron Skin, Dodge, Retaliate, Strong, Lucky.

    Long Range: Iron Skin, Dodge, Marksman, Lucky, ???

    Will the class have new traits?!
