How about

improving the gold crate rewards in advanced Challenge missions? I just used my level 19 survivors to beat a map that recommended I use "Level 29 Survivors" and was "rewarded" with this:

    Just happened again after I beat a map that called for level 30 survivors:

    You do know its going to keep happening. Its capped based on you survivor level (or workshop level, or one of those).
    It is not capped at the recommended survivor level

    That's a butt-load of TG @brentp17. I've been pounding two of the missions at level 30 for two days and keep getting mostly green crapola myself. I feel your pain.

    I believe equipment is capped on your building points level. I didn't start getting good equipment until I leveled up everything.

    @Dale Level 19 is the highest eq level in the game. They removed level 20,

    ah. Thanks. I admit that I wasn't really paying attention to that because it was far beyond where I was.

    Beating level 20+ walkers should remove any rare rewards. We ought to be getting epic and legendary only for beating such high level walkers.
    Rare rewards? Not at these levels please!

    Yeah, I never set up Outpost, so I am saving up to get 50K so I can open 100 gold crates, or possibly 6 legendary crates and 10 gold crates. I haven't decided. I think that any level above, say, 25 should be guaranteed epic or legendary gear in gold crates.

    All I mean is that the equipment should be Legendary or Epic, not Rare.

    That's why there is no point to play on maps above rec lvl 23.
    Main two reasons:
    - Poor rewards
    - Too high gas cost

    Those two reasons are enough for me to not do it.

    This is the area where the game sucks. I am really pissed by the rewards I get on the gold crates. First, getting gold crates is a pain in the ass and second getting something good out of them. The 7500/3500 Legendary/ Epic equipment is another hit or miss kind of thing. I have been patiently waiting to get a hunter armor for the past so many months but alas no a single armor obtained. These areas need to be improved

    That's why NG offers overpriced bundles with armors;(

    And 568 (phones) is a hoard. ;)

    No. It's a collection! ;)


    The 3500 crates are more economical than 8+ gas on a high level challenge with a better than even chance of only pulling rare gear imho.

    rare gear should only be allowed in gold rewards, if the item lvl is RSL +1 (or maybe +2), so when you start missions with a RSL 19 you won't get any rare items in golden crates anymore, because Lvl 20 gear cannot drop atm,
    the same mechanics should apply to uncommon gear in silver crates

    I win. (Actually, I probably lose.)

    This wasn't even during an increased chance of better rewards weekend. It was a normal weekday and I was so excited until I actually unlocked my 4 gold boxes.

    I made a thread a while back regarding the Gold & Silver crates. I believe the Gold crates should only contain epic & legendary, since you get rare items in the Silver crates. It's frustrating to get the exact same weapon you got from a Silver or Bronze crate when you open a gold one. I think they should all have their own levels (with no duplicating) personally, but maybe that's just me?! NG could make so that once you cross a certain recommended level, but since there is epic & legendary low equipment my suggestion works from level 1 and up. either way @brentp17 is right, the higher level crates should contain better supplies, XP and gear! Hopefully, this is being addressed in the next update(s).

    @OneLessTitan, that seems to be the pattern. People complain and NG nerfs. We need to be careful what we wish for.
  • JayZJayZ Member Posts: 3,725
    @FLWill I agree completely. In that same thread, I think I stated that I would rather get HALF as many gold crates if I could be guaranteed that I'd never see another rare weapon/armor from a gold crate.
