XP from Walker Kills is awesome!

Thanks NG for the change! I know those that farmed may be bummed, but I think this change really helps everyone out.

Here are my kill #s and XP for this challenge. I didn't farm every level due to time restraints, but I'm loving the XP I've gained. If the trend from "The Loading Bay" continues, I'd expect for players like myself (Level 18 Survivors) to optimize their XP at Recommended Survivor Level (RSL) 16-18 (probably 16-19 once you get Level 19 Survivors), then have a tough time getting as many kills on the harder levels.

An interesting side note: My Guildies mentioned that within the same RSL for a mission, the mission can actually be slightly harder based on your Star Total Going into the mission. So, an RSL 21 where you start with 51 Stars is slightly easier than an RSL 21 where you start with 53 Stars. The XP numbers from my kills indicate that this is in fact true; every time I've played an RSL mission twice, the second time (where I've started with a higher star count) resulted in more XP. That shows that there is a slight increase in some of the Walker Levels in the mission where I started with a higher Star Count.

    I love the detailed stats on this one! Interesting to see the drop off as levels get harder and you can't do any micro-farming.

    I like how you play each level of a certain challenge.
    I had always done 1-6, then repeated. Until recently when I (we/our guild) found it is best to leave 1-2 maps at 50% or so complete for quest bonus on Wed-Friday. So if a "Use all bruisers" comes up, then you still have some levels that are beatable.. Also to maximize fuel reserves, so that on Friday evening not all missions are "8-9 Required fuel," but a mixture of 4 needed, 8 needed, 6 needed, etc. (I know this is a wash in the end, but it helps before going to bed if I have 9 gas, then I can run a 6 gas and a 3 gas mission).

    Then others said they had same planning, but for "Watch Video" Extra crates. This is also a good idea, as typically M-F I only do Challenges, and waste the open 3 extra crates on low levels.

    Wow I totally hijacked this, my bad.

    But I totally agree @OneLessTitan I believe the increased XP reward is worth the 10-25 minutes of farming at the end of challenges, and farming xp missions.

    Gas and XP boosting have totally ruined me for XP expectations. And doing challenges aside from the last 20-30 stars is not very supply profitable.
    but now with the extra XP, not too bad
