    Well, while you're at it @Teeceezy you might add a 'dislike' for when you feel for a persons post, but it's not quite the thing to 'like'. For instance when they just got raided and dropped to a lower tier minutes before reset.

    Dislike is probably not quite the correct word. That's more like you dislike what they wrote, not disliking the situation you wrote about.

    Maybe "That Sucks" works better

    Thank you @blynknz
    I was looking for better words, but they didn't come to mind, they were stuck in yours.

    About 30 hours after update I like the outpost changes very much.

    I have TG like never before...but I can´t trade it to stuff I need :neutral:

    No biiiig radio bundles, no legendary crates...disapointed.

    The radio rewards from challenges need some recalculation too...also do the recycle/refresh time of the shop...

    I like Outpost changes as well. Also restock in TG shop is exciting :) Of course lack of common crates is a little pain but we need to have a hope for better content soon....

    Curious to see what gear they'll add, and more precisely at what prices.
    I have some TG put away, but fear that it will run out quickly enough once the good stuff arrives.

    Whats wrong with the calculations.
    At earlier stages, they are all cheaper than the Trade shop.
    TS = 600 per phone
    Challenge = max 500 per phone (second reward), but are working their way down. After 6 reward levels you would have 12 phones for 3900 which is 325TG per phone.

    And I imagine it will get smaller for the last few levels.

    Ever since I updated to 2.1 yesterday, I have not seen a single video ad after a challenge at the boxes screen. The only option that appears is 25 gold for 3 extra chances opening boxes. The videos were there before the update, but now they have disappeared.

    I don't care if this has been posted anywhere else. this expansion has managed to make the challenge missions worthless, the store irritating and the pvp too easy so it isn't a challenge now. Why would anyone want to even log in now? Who wants a game that the hard stuff gets you nothing worth doing and the other things are easy, but you can't even spend your earnings on what you want? This expansion was designed by morons.

    I may be deleting this game from my phone.

    Very disappointed.

    Please keep it civil @expansion
    Thank you for your feedback. I'm merging this with the main discussion.

    I come on the forums a lot. Most of the time i read, and agree with what really stands out. What is killing me, is how many people are as disappointed with this update as i am. I will do my best to keep this as constructive as possible. First off, i like many others very much appreciate the fixing of the traits. Before they did not work, to the point of select characters glitching, so thumbs up there. Second, and here comes the boom, just flipping get rid of this stupid outpost thing. Let's be realistic for a second. In a zombie apocalypse of this magnitude, there's stuff laying around for all. So much so, the game centers around exploration quests between story missions. So why the hell are we raiding and stealing stuff from other players? And when it comes to the players we want to work with, why is it i still have to come to the forums to recruit them? Honestly, the outpost, and this new system to accommodate it, is utter rubbish. The focus should be directed toward the challenges and being rewarded for ranking globally in tiers like was attempted in the outpost. I absolutely loathe the new radio call. Id rather have the choice to wait and spend 3000 crates for 5 calls, then save to 15, which took forever as it was then, now with the new system it seems it will be taking even longer. Yay. And these free character's aren't worth accepting nor getting tokens for, because of the low levels despite my updated call tent. I really don't like to complain, and it would seem i did more than my share here, i just hope that our voices are heard. We liked the game the way it was. If it were so unfair before, i wonder why so many players are angry now that it has been "fixed "?

    Sleep? Well, you just have to time your sleeping accordingly. Who cares about work and stuff? :p

    What I meant was, I could be waiting for something to turn up to buy it and then it turns up while I'm asleep, working or busy etc.

    @Shteevie So with bug fixes, you're saying that they'll only be done for gameplay updates? Bug fixes can be released without the requirement of all players to update the app, they've been done before so that should continue to happen IMO..

    @MadPuppy @blynknz
    What you're talking about sounds a lot like a "pity" button. I think it was @masmith93 who suggested such one some time ago
    I'm lost.

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

    There's something wrong with the trade goods reset. I got my last batch before bed and it said 7 hours. I opened my TG shop at 9:30 est and it said it would reset in 7 hours which means it would have reset at 4:30am.

    I woke up at 6:30 to log in and collect stuff and again it said 7 hours from that moment... Shouldn't it have been 2 hours into the next reset? Or is the timer indicative of me logging in?

    In my opinion these resets should be set to a timer in general; not once I log in and open the trade goods trading screen.

    It's not a big deal but would it be better to set these things against an actual time rather than me needing to click buttons? I now have 2 additional hours until my next reset because I was sleeping.

    The 24 hour free radio call as well should be set to a timer; not reset once logging in. If I miss it oh well but logging in once every 7 hours to collect would be better than waiting 7 hours since the last time I logged in. Just a suggestion.

    @zbot yes, thanks. I guess there's no way of finding out who started it, but seems like a lot of people were really eager to get that button.

    Same rants here.
    No zombie spawn before opening the gates makes a level 1 outpost more useful than a level 90. since at least not all of the attackers will be able to charge up.
    Radio calls as guild prize...as well as the new shop...very bad. It's basically a way to drive and control all of our choices. Good for NG, bad for players.
    Exploration mission meant as THE way to farm XP... . when will you realize that is it BORING AS HELL to repeat same missions over and over? At least story missions do have some variety, so make the Nightmare level mission always repeatable. And WITHOUT nerfing the xp prize, of course (I say that before you do).
    And still stunned players do dodge and avoid bullets, which is plainly stupid.
    Bah...this game is becoming less and less attractive after every patch...no new content, just new ways to waste money...

    Totally agree @DLich, should be set times.
    So I could, log in with 1min to go. Claim the phone, wait a minute and claim the next phone.
    DLichrgerkmanRick_ZK
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    So time is reseted only when we log in and claim something??
    If yes that's why I asked about restock notification

    @DLich Quests have always been like that. 24 hours after you log in and receive a new one. So I'm not surprised the TG shop is the same. I don't like it either. Someone made a great suggestion to have the game push notifications when this happens so that we can at least be more on top of it.

    The only thing that sync's to time is the challenges when it would be beneficial that everything was sync'd to time.

    Since we all live in the same world, and our clocks may be off by hours from eachother, our minutes are all sync'd. It may be 8:20am here on the east coast but it's 7:20 central, 6:20 mountain, 5:20 pacific.

    Gas should sync this way too. it should count down every 10 minutes and be the same for all people across the board, so when it's 8:30 I know i've gotten another gas; 8:40 another gas; 8:50 another gas. I just think that would be a nice unification (and one I thought would be better for a while but wasn't worth a post until now since discussing other time related things)

    Place everything against GMT. 12pm GMT is the base reset time and we adjust our time zone accordingly.

    12pm GMT the radio resets
    12pm, 6pm, 12am, 6am the TG shop resets (regardless of if/when we log in)
    12pm gas timer goes to 0; every 10 minutes afterwards 1 gas is earned (timer set every 10 minutes to real time)
    12pm Quest resets

    The game has a logic clock built into it. Just look at the challenges, they go off at (in my time zone) 11am monday morning to begin it; 11am saturday morning to end it, then the countdown timer until when the next challenge resets.

    I'm not getting any legendary crate in the TG shop. I hope this stock do not have the same percentage to show up as legendary gear usually shows up as mission rewards. :'(
