Weekend event discussion (increased gold/silver crates)

JayZJayZ Member Posts: 3,576
Don't think I've seen a thread discussing this yet. Looks like this weekend's event is increased chances of gold/silver rewards.

Definitely liked this event last time. I might get the 24 hour gas booster (haven't gotten it yet) to take advantage of the increased rewards.

Last time, the cost of extra unlocks was reduced to 15 gold. Any word on whether that will happen again @Teeceezy?

EDIT: Per the official announcement, looks like we'll have 15 gold unlocks again!

    They might offer us the cheaper version of both boosters together

    Was hoping for 5 second equipment upgrades, given the armor bundles they're pushing.

    IMHO, it is not 'increased chance of gold/silver crates' that we really need. But 'increased chance of legendary gears from crates'.

    I have no problem with gold/silver crates this far, but the chance to get Leg gears that really matter since NG has reduce the chance to get it.

    This event is the equivalent of asking your boss for a raise and him giving you $50 in lottery tickets every 2 weeks instead.

    It'll be fun opening those extra silver crates and getting Lvl 18 uncommon armor. Looking forward to it *sarcasm*

    I agree with @Lones. The higher level gear drops have faded away to near zero. I did the 24 hour gas booster yesterday, so I played a TON of mission. I got 1 legendary armor - level 9 during a mid range challenge mission, and 3 epic pieces, only one of them at level 18 (my current level.) The other 2 were level 16.

    Dont sell/scrap that uncommon gears before upcoming update, we dont know how many tokens we gonna get.. I'm collecting those unuse gears from crates since the update news was announced, if after the update they are still unuse, I'm planning to open garage sale at my home.. You guys are welcome to take anything you want for free...

    Gear gets tokens? I thought only radios got tokens

    @Jay-Z, I saw their announcement and if I read it correctly, the unlocks are reduced to 15. Hope this helps, I know if the crates are decent unlimited gas and 2x XP will be a must have for me.

    No token system for gear in 1.10, no.
  • LightfeetLightfeet Member Posts: 1,062
    @Teeceezy Is there a hidden BUT at the end of your sentence? ;) (i.e. a token system for gear in the pipeline for 1.11, 1.12 ...)
  • JayZJayZ Member Posts: 3,576
    @Krull Thanks for pointing this out! I had posted based on what I saw from the Content Creators' videos, which didn't mention the reduced gold. Good to see that the official announcement says that it's happening :)
  • LonesLones Member Posts: 112
    I thought I have read about gear tokens somewhere in the posts.. But if such thing doesnt exist, then it is my bad.. Sorry guys...
  • Shut_UpShut_Up Member Posts: 2,295
    I wonder if @OneLessTitan or one of the other stat crunchers will be tracking their own rewards to see what the increase is for the event. One could definitely get a good sample size by using said gas booster. Of course someone will be like I did 6 XP missions and all I got was 1 silver and 1 gold and it was tomatoes and I'm maxed out when's the council update I need new survivors and I'm not pulling the right level gear! Lol

    Well 1 silver and 1 gold out of 6 missions during a special event for tickets should concern you!
    Back from 2016 :p
  • woodstockwoodstock Member Posts: 200
    The event should be running since 27 minutes. I have restarted the game several times, with force kill. But no event. No in-game announcement, no countdown, and the extra unlocks still cost 25 gold.
  • shabbashabba Member Posts: 452
    hmm, think event started and official note says 15g for unlocks, but i'm still at 25gold, @Teeceezy is this overlooked?
    Plz fix and refund me 10 gold :)
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    Force to close the game and restart @shabba

    I just started the game on another device where the announcement showed up. Then started on the first device again, but still nothing. NG, how difficult can it be?

    @shabba did you force quit and restart the game? do you have the event announcement in the game?
  • shabbashabba Member Posts: 452
    didn't force quit, started up just at 9:30 so was fresh start as it was closed and yes announcement is in the game

  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    Honestly I never liked this type of event. Never worked for me ;)

  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770

    I tracked my results during the previous event, and @TheLostOnes also sent me his results.

    In non-deadlies outside the event, my drop rate for Gold Crates is 2.7%, and Silver is 15.1% (1400+ missions)
    During the last event, our combined drop rates for Gold Crates was 8.5%, and Silver was 14% (106 missions)

    Great event for me so far coupled with purchase of free gas for 24 hour :smile:

    On average 1 gold and 1 silver ticket for XP exploration mission from Episode 13 :smiley:
