    Thank you @Shteevie !! You rock!!

    Two follow up questions:
    1. Will we get a days notice before the update? (I don't want to cash in my TGs today and have them at risk for many days if the update doesn't come tomorrow.)
    2. Any chance on revealing the new payout structure early?? Pretty please!! :)

    @TheLostOnes Knowing NG, I think that they will want to keep it a surprise for us...a days advance notice would help since I have like 24 crates in limbo.

    I'm continuing this discussion in the team, but it's rough at the end of the day when people start to go home.

    I get the concern you have and I want to be accurate. I think that the roll / index is saved on the server, but if the table that it references gets new contents in the update, the results would be different if you open it before or after the update. If I learn anything more, I'll post here. It's a little frustrating to want to give you the answer quickly, but then to need to hear back from the many people who have touched the system over the various updates.

    As for update warning, it comes down to our position as not being the entity that "pushes the button" and makes the update live. It's not that we want to surprise anyone; it's that we hand it off for approval and say "turn this on ASAP". Someone else flips the final switch.

    @tammy -- if you cash in your stored crates before the update, you will get the rewards under the current structure. If you cash them in after the update, the rewards will be based on the new structure (which we don't know the details of, but sounds like at least some, if not all, of those rewards will be radios).

    As I see it, I lean towards cashing in BEFORE the update. You may want those TG since TG will be less plentiful if we no longer get them from guild rewards, and can only get them from Raids and collecting from the Outpost Building. We may really want those TGs if the changes to the Trade Good store allow us to buy more specific gear.

    Edited to add: and if the option to buy radios in the TG store stays, then we can still buy radios with the TGs we cashed in.

    2nd edit: ignore everything above!! Lol. Our crates will keep the same reward.

    I'm a little confuzzled too @tammy

    I think we can store them but after update.. Any stored crates will not have TGs as Rewards.. but w/e new Reward system is.

    I swore I read somewhere that new Rewards would be phones & tokens.. but now I'm wondering if they are going to give a mix of things equivalent to Gold Crates or something of the sort? Idk

    So yea.. I'm confused too lol & patiently waiting for some clarity :blush:

    Edit: nvm @Shteevie posted while I was writing this lol

    Tough decision. If I cash in for tg now, I'll lose 10% roughly once a day due to raids. And the raider won't even benefit from getting it; he'll get the arbitrary 300-500 trade goods while I lose a lot more.

    Do I cash in now and spend immediately? Do I cash in now and lose a bunch waiting for the changes? Do I hold on and cash in after the changes, not knowing what they'll be?

    This is a dilly of a pickle to us in.

    so we cant get anymore tg from challenge? why do u guys make it so hard for us to grow... if u guys r only making us get tg from outpost and production... the economy of tg will suffer, just like the token economy. converting a radio > tg is not a good idea! i would rather take 3k goods vs 5 radios on my HARD EARNING STARS from the challenge

    Yup, I'm definitely cashing in for TG. But hopefully not too soon, as I don't want to have it raided from me.

    If I remember correctly @Shteevie told us that the new outposts would go live September 7, meaning from tomorrow the TG's should be safe.

    Can anyone confirm this. If so, I can safely cash in my TG crates as soon as the outpost cycle refreshes and thus be well in advance of the update going live.


    Edit, while posting @Shteevie answered my dilemma. I'll just let the crates sit there and twist my thumbs some more waiting patiently for the update.

    @rgerkman @OneLessTitan

    I know I said this before, but check my latest post. We specifically didn't want to put you in a pickle, and I think we pulled it off.

    as far as i understood, only guild rewards in challenges will be phones after the update, your own rewards on your personnel star count will stay TG or did i miss something?

  • ShteevieShteevie Staff Posts: 1,335
    Guild Challenge rewards are changing. TG still come from personal Challenge play.

    I have been specifically avoiding giving a date for the update, as I have no control over when it goes live.

    The contents of the crates you have now will not change in the update.

    Omg I'm so confused...

    So...no more TG in reward crates?

    Only radios in reward crates?

    TG only available through outposts?

    TG from crates will still exists for personal rewards. guild rewards will contain something different.

    @Shteevie the old system used to allow us to see all traits on the survivors before we unlocked them. I wish we could go back to that. I hate wasting tokens on survivors so they can become legendary and unlock defensive stance or vigilant. It's a total waste

    Will we be able to exchange child regards for radios or are we feeding them to the zombies? @Amiga :smile:

    @Shteevie It's the Apple Event tomorrow, which explains why the update might be late... At least that's how I explain it to myself! :)

    Only thing changing @tammy is our Guild Rewards (will be phones) Personal Star Rewards will still be TG
    So you can still hoard away in unnecessary proportions :joy:
