Weekend Event- Double XP and 5 sec equipment upgrade time

General_PainGeneral_Pain Content Creator Posts: 2,461
Hi guys sorry for the confusion but seems like NG added something new and we just got the info.

At this point I thought it was futile to make another video so I will just type it here:

Weekend event July 29th

Old One

Double XP from all kills in any mission+ 5 second equipment upgrade time

New one


Double XP from all the kills, mission rewards, crates, walkers at the wall AND 5 sec equipment upgrade time.

The double XP booster will be removed from the shop however if you purchase the XP booster beforehand it will stack up!

The event starts on Friday at 7 AM UTC and ends on Monday at 7 AM UTC

Now it's the time to upgrade those weapons/armor

Happy Farming!

CC Pain

    @painclasher could you ask NG?

    @Amiga My guess is tomorrow when the event begins. The Gas booster will stay

    Imagine the next update coming out with new council level after the event, rendering all your gear upgrades useless again :p
    Jokes aside, great event! It has been Long overdue, finally able to clear my hoards of green gear from the inventory.

    This is a very useful weekend event, one which will undoubtedly help the players, but ultimately, it's not going to placate what is, and rightfully so, a damaged community. RETURN OUR WEAPON STATS - many of us have forked out real world cash to upgrade and you have effectively STOLEN that cash by nerfing the weapon statistics. You cannot do this - it's tantamount to theft. What difference it makes to NG, I don't know and don't care - FIX THIS ISSUE.

    1) This is a very nice weekend event, thanks NG! Clearly they are doing this as a sign of good will.


    It´s one of the better events for sure. But in between the bullshit events there were the nice ones all the time. Last weeks event was bullshit...so it´s pretty usual, that a nice one follows :wink:

    Just from that I´m not seeing a good will after all...

    Don't buy gas boosters, just do entry point outpost raiding. Only 2 gas and a lots of fatties who will give a lot of XP.

    My thoughts on this event is it's a step in the right direction and a show of good faith by NG. This event by far has to be the least profitable of all for them!!!

    I understand there is a spending freeze going on within the community, but threads like @PimpOfTheDead http://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/12518/used-1st-xp-boost-ever-just-wanted-to-share
    show just how easy it is to burn gold when bottle necked.

    For a brief example $3 xp booster & 7000 Gold ($50-$70) would not need to be purchased this weekend to reap the same benefits. In my opinion this is a show of good faith.

    Good idea @JackBauer

    I'd like to think that I had something to do with this weekend's event.

    Just kidding.

    In all honesty though, I am glad that NG seems to be taking a step in the right direction. Maybe if we complain enough, we'll get a radio event (epic/legendary, not the other crap they've had recently) paired with double tokens from rejecting survivors ;)

    I like the event. It's one of their better ones, especially IF we get double XP from scrap, but it sounds like that is still undetermined. I like the idea of raiding the front end of Outposts like @JackBauer said. That sounds like it could be a good return on 2 gas.

    Thanks NG for a nice event. Something that drops extra radios or tokens directly would have been an even better move to show that you are listening to our concerns, though.

    I will enjoy the event, but without spending. #walletstillclosed

    @JackBauer now that your strategy is seen by anyone viewing the forum (and I think it's a great idea and one I have shared with my guild) I hope the outpost values aren't tweaked no counteract this strategy.

    As long as it remains a cost of 2 gas per outpost play and 10 tg costs to search for an outpost and double xp pertains to outpost walker kills your strategy is spot on to maximize effeciency.

    Another great idea is car crash. it's 8 gas for lvl 17 walkers but since they don't increase in strength it's possible to kill 100 and then "flee". Just be sure to bring a survivor along you don't mind throwing to the wolves. When you don't attain any stars in a challenge mission there is no cool down.

    @DLich I recommended inside our guild the "Inside and Out" for farming. There are constantly coming fatties all the time from left and right top. Unfortunately I'm already over the point of "no return" at this challenge mission where I can't farm it anymore on weekend.

    No. No. No.
    Yesterday I used 40 radios for Maggie and got total disappointed.
    Today I just got 10 radios together again and got again punked with bruiser tokens.
    No. No. No.

    Any thoughts? Don't press "disagree", just say what you think.


    I was thinking about just to press disagree...just for a rebel cause. But as I think we both have a fitting attitude, I drops some letters :wink:

    I´m going with Rick and Jack...stay strong!

    Yes...it is a good event, but we had it several times and I don´t see this as a movement toward the community. It was simply the time (after shitty events) for a good event.

    You´ll pass it...it will come again :blush:
