Gas required during challenge - big misunderstanding!

Let's be honest. Gas required in challenge is a cruel joke.
Our maximum amount of gas is 19. Full refill cost 76 GOLD. 500 gold cost £3.99 It is enough to do 6 refills.
Challenge map with lvl 16 survivors required 10 gas.
Buying 500 gold we can play less then 10 times on those maps. Are you serious devs?
£3.99 to spend in game 20 minutes??
This is ridiculous joke especially where high challenge tiers are waste of time. Crap rewards.
The only way to solve this issue is capped amout of gas needed to start challenge map to 6 like deadly exploration map.

Devs don't be greedy!!
Please keep common sense..

    I agree with you Amiga,

    Gas is just way too costly in gold per refill, please either reduce the cost of gas refills or reduce the amount of gas needed in for challenge missions...or both?
    At least please do one
    Like Amiga said, considering the amount of gold spent compared to the rewards, it's a bit of a ripoff

    Indeed about cost of gold to refill tank 76 gold ???!! Should be no more than 20. The same cost of extra 3 locks - 25? Come on.. should be 5.
    All this micropayments in game is one big joke. The same with radios gold cost... another misunderstanding.

    Please take note - this is something that many of us have asked to be addressed since November.
    Could you please forward this (and all of the other gas price threads) to the devs as part of the reward tweak theme?

    I love this game, but the gas costs are kind of ridiculous.

    This is the most unbalanced F2P game I ever played. Of course is great game but the way how devs want to pull out money for gas is an absurd. Somebody is blind here if doesn't see it

    Strongly agree change the gas prices it's just crazy. You will lose people like this that can't enjoy a game cause they have to pay to play.

    Agreed. I'd be willing to endure commercials in between each challenge mission, if it meant unlimited play or even if it gifted me 3 gas for watching.

    Agreed here! Most other games offer way more missions per day. Perhaps shortening the gas regeneration time, as opposed to changing pricing and cost structure already built into the game. I would think this could be accomplished by adding more videos/adds etc. to offset dev cost. @Teeceezy @TK-421 @Miss Rogue @OldGoth

    Hope to see any improvements soon in this case.

    Gas is fine. Just need to plan better as to what missions to do and what you want to accomplish.

    @zbot
    Gas is fine? 11 for one play is fine? I think weare playing two different game.
    Try to reach 40 stars on every challenge map then try to plan or come back again to this thread.

    They could always make the missions harder so that you can't get >40 stars. Then the gas cost won't be an issue any more! ;)

    @Amiga, again it's all a matter of planning. I usually get about 140-160 stars the first day and then figure out if I want more stars to get up to the level or just farm, for me I choose to farm as I still need to upgrade. Certain guild challenges are easier than others. Again, if stars float your boat, go wild.
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    Still gas amount req to play is too high. Many players think the same not only me.

    I don't have too much problem with the overall gas cost, but the challenge missions do cost too much. Gas cost should go up every 3 missions rather than every 2, but they shouldn't cap the recommended level or gas required.

    We're discussing gas costs all the time. No changes to announce yet. We're aware it may limit high level players too much.
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    Sad to hear it @OldGoth that nothing will change atm. Challenge is bad balanced compare gas usage to rewards.

    It's a classic "if you've got deep pockets then you'll all go to the top of the table". With a cap it's allows more to play and be far more balanced. Deep pockets will still spend, but us poor folk can hold our heads up as challengers.
    I don't really believe it's about the wonga, but it gives a more level playing field.
    Been playing RPGs before electricity and to have no cap on playing these missions is crazy.
    yay Z Nation trailer now out for new season!

    Again it's about planning, I'm a f2p and haven't spent a dime but if I want stars I can but it's usually better payoff to do food/exp or deadly runs than earn pretty stars. But if you want stars go hog wild and plan properly/

    @zbot yep you're probably right. I myself have only been playing since the New Year, so still a newb, only managing 150* at the moment (no cash spent as yet), so max gas spent has been 8 so far on one mish. This is doable, but not looking forward to using a higher amount as I progress.

    One thing I do find a little disconcerting though, as much as I appreciate the devs appear very keen for open discussion for gamers to improve their playing experience, why do an awful lot of the messages cry out for bigger, better and fatter prizes now? Are we not into RPGs for the long run? To have legendary everything weekly would mean the end is in sight unless a new category of interstellar was added in 12 months.
    Sorry going off topic.
    Peace out
    yay Z Nation trailer now out for new season!

    @zbot what a bullshit about planning. My every map req 11 gas. it's clear that I need to use gold to move forward. Of course I will not do it so I'm stuck with 250 stars.
    1 challenge map per hr..which is 5 min of playing. Amazing. I can plan my day at work, here only spending gold.
    That's all about planning.

    Planning @Amiga, means to use the time you have available. You can start a mission to use gas and come back later and finish, if you time it you should be able to. It maybe my playstyle also. I rack up all my stars on the first day since it's a sunday for me. Take a break start a mission to use up gas, come back finish mission later and should have enough gas for the next mission. I mean, if you are playing this game 24/7 and watching the gas timer count down, there maybe other issues more than the gas. The guild challenge prizes aren't that great so I am confused as to the star goals. Different stroke for different folks?

    I'm using trick with gas every time when I'm going to sleep . I play this game even at work. I'm watching every video but it will not change the truth that gas cost is sick.
    Answer is simple - I'm prefer play 3x deadly exploration mission than 1 challenge map for 11 gas and this is the subject what I'm talking about.
