Reaching Out

Hello fellow TWD: NML Players.

I've seen way to much bashing these past 2 days on forums because of star production. If its something that the game allows you to do then its fine by me. This is the second week the Forest challenge has been out. These methods of getting large amounts of stars in certain challenges were already known within 3 days of it being around the first time. There was several weeks between then and now when it could have been "fixed" or the challenge cycle could have just skipped the Forest until things had been addressed. Things went ahead as normal so NG cant have seen it as to big a problem.

Now maybe some of you are right and its because they are profiting off of it but as I will explain, they aren't profiting as much as most of you think. If they are making money on gold purchases I would say 85% of it goes into Radio purchases, 10% goes to gas for farming deadlies to get gear/xp, and 5% goes towards gas for farming guild challenge stars. Star farming is not high on the priority list for most. In all games, the top of the Leaderboards is almost always commanded by people that subscribe to benefits or spend money for in-game power ups. I see no problem with that. I am content with not even being on the top 50 global. I collect stars for my guild for the sheer fun of it and enjoy chatting with my guild mates while doing it. I don't concern myself with leaderboards or how outrageous other peoples achievements are. I just congratulate them on something I myself see out of reach, and then continue on with my own personal gameplay.

You don't need to spend tons of money to get 400 stars. I get 264+ using zero gold with time left to get more but I prefer farming deadlies once I get 264. If my math is correct it would maybe cost $20 (2500 gold) for enough gas refills to farm challenges for 400 stars. It's only 4 gold per gas, meaning its 76 for a full refill. So for $20 you could refill your tank 33 times and adding that with natural refill times and gas rewards from the missions, you could do the missions at least 50+ more times for $20. That means even at 2 stars at a time thats 100 extra stars at least. So its very doable to whoever wants to do it. Personally its not for me, but to each their own. I hold nothing against the people able to get such high amounts of stars, all the power to them. I prefer the more free to play version of things :)

So can we all just drop the name calling, please? We all enjoy the game and want it to grow so we can continue to play it and progress. NG is doing everything they can to make this game everything we want it to be but it takes time and we need to give them that chance. Keep playing and enjoying yourselves guys and lets make these forums a more inviting and constructive place to come while we wait for those gas tanks to fill up!

Lets kill those walkers together guys! The living must work together to defeat the dead! Wish you all the best of luck in your radio calls and gold cases! Its a special radio weekend so lets all get some of those elusive legendaries!!

Your fellow zombie slayer,

  • @C_Lloyd I agree with most of what you said, except for the amount people spend on radio's. I don't personally think people buy that many radio's as just one 15 radio call out cost 750 gold bars. Many people report saving their radio's up just for theses types of weekends. I'm betting most cash turned into gold gets used towards gas and healing & upgrading Survivors.
    That's just my opinion and I could be wrong.

    @bgbelden I use mine for gas / healing / upgrades... Once in a while I will splurge and buy a big bundle and do radio calls (rarely though)... I have given myself a weekly allowance as I enjoy this game so much and I just want to play.

    Some weeks, If I am very nice to my husband... Well, maybe he will squeeze in an extra iTunes card for me lol

    This game is so much fun... I absolutely love it :)<3:)

    Anyone get any good survivors today with the new radio event that is happening this weekend???

    Well.. what you say reflects who you are..

  • BUMPnGRINDBUMPnGRIND Member Posts: 14
    @AysatyoPet that isn't always the case.
    Some people like to have freedom of speech, and enjoy having a joke. That's what the forums is all about, being heard and getting your point across. Wether it's positive or negative. At the end of the day, this is a game, and if people can't enjoy some banter, then they should get out of the kitchen. So to speak.

    its not just the content of what you say.. it includes everything, your tone, how you say it, choice of words, your mood, your intention, etc.. everything will reflect who you are..

    @grimey you do realize some of the women that play actually have their own money don't you? You know from jobs or maybe the trust funds you refer to. And even may pay cash and not charge our gold. We could suggest to NG that they have two leaderboards, Could call them the "Haves" and the "Have Nots". Or make a poor people and rich people version of the game. Or maybe put dollar signs next to the player name - you know like they do so you can figure out how expensive food is at a restaurant? Say one $ sign if you only spend a little and go up to maybe $$$$$ if you are living large. But then that might create a stigma for players that don't have any dollar signs and make them feel bad. They could end up using rent money just to get that $ status symbol...

    Guys, I made this thread to try and get the community to work as one and not direct hate at each other.

    @grimey , you say you don't care how other spend their money but you obviously do and are constantly posting useless slander across everyone else's posts on this forum. Can you please refain even a little bit? I even requested for this not to happen on this thread. Just agree to disagree and move on. You made your point, no need to argue over it. The people that read your comment will either agree or disagree. Posting more wont change their minds, same as its not changing yours when arguing with others. So just say your peace and move along, please and thank you. :)

    Well spoken Lloyd.

    I am often amused by some of the posts and rants on here,some of the people on here should be writing comedy scripts.(Or,institutionalized) Either way,it's entertaining.

    A little civility and mutual respect is not too much to ask...and wow the Chiefs just coughed up the ball..anyway,nj Lyoyd.

    @C_Lloyd, maybe it is the violence of the game that brings out the rage? Oh wait, I think it is because we have to much time between gas fill-ups! If we didn't have 10 minutes between oil production we wouldn't have time for rage and name calling and sarcasm here on the forum! ;)
    @Lawdog The posts do often entice me to try out my comedy material - like amateur open mike night.

    Just got notice that my tank is full! Good evening to all!

    A noble effort Lloyd!
