No radios in 48 hours! Wtf is going on

Why are there no radios, nothing, not 1 from 10000 trade goods, not a sniff on the weekly event or a single one from those biters at the gate.

    Yeah you can still get phones free from walkers at the wall at least. Probably not as many as we were already used to. In trade goods or mission rewards I dont even want to see gold or phones.

    Few days ago I purchased the 24h gas refill booster. I've played more the 200 exploration missions alternating tomatoes and XP missions. Here is what I got:
    -) About 1.7 M of Tomatoes
    -) About 1.5 M of XP
    -) 14 radio calls!!!

    Yes, only 14 radio calls after playing more the 200 times....
    Something got wrong with that. Anyway, I suggested to NG to give us a weekend event like: "increased chance of radio calls!!!"

    I do a lot of challenge fights. Plenty of radio drops there.

    Is it really just a "lucky streak" or "unlucky streak" when it comes to Radios?

    As I said in the other post..

    1 Radio Sunday & 2 on Monday (don't remember before that cause I wasn't really paying attention)

    I know & don't expect 100s of Radios a day lol but....

    Is it possible I will log on tomorrow, for instance, & get 10 Radios?

    Thanks for your time

    There was a stretch when I seemed to not be getting radios, lately I'm getting what i think is an OK amount... I think they do alter the flow occasionally, just my hunch.

    I've gotten 8 radios in the last hour from crates in the challenge missions and wall walkers. Go figure.

    If ya pizzoff some software folks, well...

    they give ya a " cookie ", that reduces some things, and increases some things...

    Small sub-routine in the code... Kinda elegant...

    And so devious...
    I am easily confused by other people's, laziness and sloppiness and greed...

    Any guess who might " now " be on my list, ( in 2017 )

    You know...I think you can buy a radio bundle if you're not getting enough.... :s In fact I'm pretty sure there are at least 4 different radio types available now. Funny how the drop in radios coincides with the increase in bundles!

    Wait a you think they are related? Naaaaaaaah...

    I think it varies a lot with radios. Good days, bad days, good weeks, bad weeks.

    Try to toll a die 1,000 times (if you have a few hours to spare).

    There will be times when there will be huge gaps between any 6's. Then you may get a stretch with 10 6's out of 20 rolls all of a sudden.

    But once done, you will have rolled very, very close to 167 6's.

    And the tricky part is depending on your mood and on the order of your lucky/unlucky stretches, you may FEEL as though you hardly had any 6's or, perhaps, feel you had very many.

    NG has screwed up on many fronts lately but I don't believe in RNG conspiracies or micro tweaking of drop rates. It's much easier for them to screw with us by overcharging for radio bundles etc.
    I'm lost.

    Check out the DMZ guild. We're recruiting. Here.

    You're right, when it's a case of probabilities, you can have bad times and then good times. Drop rates haven't been changed in the last update, and we're far to busy for any kind of conspiracies. ;)

    I counted them. More than 260 radio's this month. 3 gas boosters used. Drop ratels seem ok to me

    @Teeceezy @Shadowkeeper What's the story behind very few if any radio's since 2.0? Some will say it's just me but many others are noticing the same thing.

    We'll look in to this - there shouldn't have been any changes to drop rates with the latest update.
    because both of you used the same statement 'no change in the last update', does this mean you lowered drop chance in the second to last update?

    Just got this once in a lifetime find a few hours ago. I'd love to argue about how rare radios are, but tonight shut me up. Luck of the draw.

    This is exactly what I noticed...since the first introduction of the token system, the radio rate discreased heavily...

    I tend to agree to the RNG good time bad time thingy. I have bad day like 3 drop, but also good day like 20+. As much as NG screws up other aspect of the game, I fairly concluded to myself that there isn't a radio drop conspiracy. Still, radio price is crazy.

    Probably too soon but... it's probably just a visual error

    I criticise NG a lot and in a very sarcastic and mean way pretty often. But I must admit that concerning radios, I didn't notice any decrease in drops before I quit. I got 5-6 radios a day, mostly from wall walkers, sometimes from chests. No gas boost, just logging in 3-4 times a day and playing some missions or challenges.

    You'll have good streaks and bad streaks.

    It took me from Thurs-Sun to find 15 radios. Then I found 15 more by Monday night. Since then I've found 2, both this morning.
  • RapaxRapax Member Posts: 256
    I've to apologize to NG. I've got probably more than 40 radio calls in the last 72 hours as a reward from crates and walkers outside the camp! That was really nice :smile:

    I find that drop rates from walkers and crates is cyclical, some days/weeks I find more supplies and limited XP and phones, other days/weeks I find more XP and phones than supplies. I was in major phone phase for a couple days, but now the last couple of days not as many phones, but more XP.
    But I know eventually the tide will turn the other way....
  • R2runfastR2runfast Member Posts: 332
    4 radios yesterday and ZERO today
  • SpacemanSpiffSpacemanSpiff Member Posts: 634
    Well if we don't hear from the OP again here, then he probably got his radios now. No news is good news? lol

    The Herd is coming! or it is the Horde? Either way, I hope there are a lot of radios involved.
