Four Months Since the Last Increased Epic & Legendary Survivor Chance Event

As the title states, the last increased epic and legendary survivors chance weekend event was on May 12th which is four months ago to the date. We used to receive this event about once a month and, undoubtedly, most players would agree that this was the best event offered. So I'm interested in knowing when will this event will return.

    The devs have stated there is no scheduled return date for this event. So don't hold your breath.

    My guess is never... or realistically, not for a loooong, loooong time. They don't want us to hoard phones, so they're not going to have an awesome event like that for which we will want to hoard phones.

    Yeah, the reverse psychology of it all makes my head hurt too.

    @Teeceezy @Shteevie

    Can we get another update on this (I assume you didn't update in one of the other few threads on this same topic recently.

    Even if the answer is
    a) Our plan is to never do these events again
    b) We are likely to do these again, but we do not have one planned for the next couple of months.
    c) Watch this space (hint hint)

    Come to reality it's not a relevant event anymore I think with this new direction

    @Sipher07 , To me that's fine. If they are going the direction of tokens etc then I will go with that. But it would be great if they can tell us and we can get on with our lives.

    -Modified A+B. We aren't willing to say the word 'never', but whether or not we'd use the event again is not a conversation I hear in the team. Please don't pass out from lack of oxygen.

    Wow, discontinued the best event they had, and we get these weak heroes jammed down our throats... disappointing...but not really surprising...

    & now there's a player that received Common Survivor with a 15 Call...
    I'm definitely going to continue to hoard my phones with this tidbit :joy:

    With the ability to upgrade survivors now, I'd say that's pretty redundant now.
    I've created more epics and legendaries than I ever pulled in all of those events put together.

    @Neil_J yeah, but we could bring in a lot of tokens as well with the survivors we rejected if we didn't find any to our liking..

    That all well and good if the tokens are flowing out the pipes

    The way it's going now, token collection is slow going for me
    The new tokens in the store is a step in the right direction, but I have to wait 7 hours to hopefully get the tokens I need

    It was a fun event that got customers excited about the game. Really foolish to discontinue it.

    5 months ago was when I got my last legendary during one of the events
    I only have two legs now and it's slow going promoting even epics

    I found lots of epic and legendary survivors with the 15 calls. Two times I had to choose between two legendaries...yes, you need radios for that...but you need them for the event too.

    The main problem is still the lack of radios :neutral:

    Radios from challenge and the shop rotation are still way to less...

  • JayZJayZ Member Posts: 3,742
    @Invader Same here. I've spent around 1200 radios in the last month on 15-calls. I get at least one epic survivor on over 50% of calls.

    @Shteevie now that wasn't so hard.
    At least we know. However, if there is an event before xmas, I am going to be extremely annoyed.

    To be fair, I have been trying to be very consistent with my tone on this issue. Doing a repeat of the event now isn't any more or less likely than it was when I first answered.

    At this point, though, if we do another one before 2017, I'll eat my hat. We have so much lined up that I don't think we'd have time to do it even if we wanted to. [Which is not to say that we want to.]

    Now I almost want to buy NG and do one of these events this year...not because I have anything against you @Shteevie ...but mainly just because I want to see a grown man eat a hat...the question is would you use condiments?

    If I bought NG I'd make it so we could choose to be zombies!!

    Best traits ... Scratch and bite combined with dodge and luck...stealth and silent prowling would be awesome too...

    ....the radio event would give us better chances to get flaming zombies and running zombies :smiley:

    I know people have been hopeful that an event like this might be forthcoming but I have to agree with Shteevie that this has consistently been their message since 2.0. At least token are more accessible (through trade goods) for us to upgrade Epic survivors.
    Everyone’s got two wolves inside them. One is anger, envy, pride. The other…truth, kindness. Every day they tear each other apart.
    But it’s not the better wolf that wins. It’s the one you feed.

    Oh @Sipher07 what's up with that response, this event is irrelevant. Drawing a legend is much better than promoting a legend. It doesn't cost 600-720 in tokens (are those figures right sorry if they aren't but it's got to be close) and you are held hostage by the RNG as to whether you get a good trait or something crappy as hell so when you draw a legend you know what you're getting. Plus drawing more legendary survivors results in more tokens to use later. With it costing thousands and thousands of tokens to upgrade a legendary to the next level, now more than ever we shouldn't have to spend hard earned tokens upgrading someone and then gamble what the last trait is. We shouldn't have to keep gambling on what we get from the radio tent to begin with but the less things that are left to random choices is fine by me. Tokens are rare no matter what so why be opposed to an event that increases the chance to increase your inventory of rare tokens.

    I also find it a little to be in poor taste that you would have the attitude 'come to reality' when I've seen you go off the deep end over some real trivial issues and still be treated with respect.

    Not having this event is yet ANOTHER great reason to burn through my gold and never open this game again and spend my weekends enjoying football and TWD on Sunday night. Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Where is the Community Love?

    When NG does something that players dislike or some players want but other players don't want or don't care about.. We come together as a Community wether we agree or not...

    A big number of us want the ICELS Event back!!!
    Soooo.. Even if you don't want it... Why not just Support the ones that do??? Like we do when it comes to other things?

    Just Sayin' :kissing_heart:

    I'm ambivalent about the return of this event, but if you guys want to keep beating a dead horse, then have at it I suppose :p

    And you never know - we were all getting pretty tired of @amiga when he was on his campaign (you know I love ya bro :* ) and he actually accomplished what he was trying to do.

    So go for it you brave crusaders - @DonQuixote
