How to make best use of phones?

Hi all, am fairly new to the game and was wondering what the best strategy would be to use my phones? So far I only went for the 3 stars, but now I am in doubt if this is the right choice. Also wondering if it's any good to go for the special offer with more chance of Carol tokens currently?

Any advice is welcome!

    Thanks guys thought so! Tho on the hero's, you say you dont chase them. May I ask why? Daryl seems really strong to me even compared to a blue shooter while only having 3 stars himself currently, isnt this the case with all hero's compared to regular survivors?

    I love my Heroes & yes.. they pack more of a punch then our Survivors.
    Some players just don't fancy them or their Traits.
    Do what works for you!! & what you like/Love!!

    I too try to only do 15 Calls but if I need a Hero & it's a Special.. I bite sometimes lol

    15 calls is the way to go. I've tried it other ways. It just doesn't work for me. You will eventually get the hero's. Higher token rate on the 15 calls.

    One reason people prioritize regular survivors over the heroes is it's much easier and faster to upgrade their star level.

    For instance, you can use Hunter tokens to upgrade traits and star level for any regular survivor Hunter. But with Daryl you can only upgrade him with his specific tokens.

    Good one @emodwarf and I also found as you want to maximize your traits Hero's are bound to their set traits, while you can of course select regulars to the trairs you like best.

    The only heroes worth using imo are Abraham, Maggie, Glen, and Jesus...probably in that order...the rest of the heroes are useless to me

    And always stick to the 15 calls...best bang for your buck

    Good luck!!

    My personal preference is to save up my radio's, for use when a special radio event comes up.
    Occasionally i pull the 15 call if i have plenty saved for fun and a chance of hero tokens or high level survivors :smile:

    I only been playing a short time, and have only used the 5 radio option once. Don't think I actually got a decent survivor out of it. Although I have gotten Glenn, a blue border and a yellow (or gold) border hunter, a blue border scout from the single radio call option. So is the multiple radio call necessary, or a waist of resources? After reading the thread I'm still not sure.

    I leveled up these guys but they came with a lot of the traits shown.

    @AssCatcher you can change survivor traits? how do you do that? I know about upgrading & promoting them but I didn't know you could change their traits.
  • zbotzbot Legendary Moderator Posts: 6,347
    @Ginnydoll0703 there's no way to change traits, what the OP is referencing is that you can find regular survivors with better traits vs. Heroes with set traits.

    Hey Everyone, I'm also new to the game. I wonder if I wouldnt get a better drop while instead of making one radio call for 15, Id make 15 calls for 1. Has anyone checked?

    You'll only get 1 trait on the 1 calls. The amount of tokens you'd need to get to get that player to 3 traits (2 stars) would outweight the saving. It's take time to get them, especially at the start. To get XP and upgrade them is quick and easy at the start,

    Read up on the traits to see what you should look out for.

    I did the 1 calls at the start and got next to nothing. The 15's have pulled me 2 x 5 stars and lots of 4 stars more often. You can get XP Easily to upgrade them.

    Always use 15 radio.

    Best choice, higher rarity...

    Level does not matter because you can upgrade the level if you want to keep the character (gold anything is good) and you get the same amount of tokens for the stars regardless of character level.

    Nthing the 15 call. It has always been better. Even before we had a token method of evaluation and a 15 call only gave you 1 survivor to choose, it was still better. It will always be better for the foreseeable future. 1 and 5 calls are for newer players in desperate need of bodies to fill their barracks. "Special" 10-calls are for suckers.

    I think it depends on what you're after. If you're hunting normal characters to level then the 15 call is hands down the best. Minimum 3 star with 3 options to choose from.

    If you're looking for tokens to level I'' not sure. I've been using the 1 phone call and tracking what I get so I can get an idea of the percentages and averages. Mainly I'm looking at stars per phone and tokens per phone. I'm waiting to get 100 total before even considering the numbers as representative of the whole. Afterward I''I'll probably try the same thing with the other calls and see how the numbers compare. I'll try and post again once I have enough data.

    Please do :)

    Last time they found:
    4.6 tokens/phones for 1 radio calls*
    5.0 tokens/phones for 5 radio calls
    5.7 tokens/phones for 15 radio calls

    * the 1 radio calls data was very suspicious. they did about 140 calls and found 1 legendary, 1 epic and 1 rare.
    That is very unlikely of course. That's why the legendary was removed to get to 4.6 tokens/phone

    Unless you're targeting that particular hero for an upgrade. Hero tokens are hard to come by so those special 10-calls can be great value.

    I would never do a 10-radio call even if trying for specific Hero tokens. If you try, prepare to be wildly disappointed.

    After I unlocked Negan I bought three 10-radio calls and got 256 tokens for him. Well worth it.

    I did the same after unlocking Maggie, again well worth as she's invaluable for farming.
