    ...to get back on track...there was a good conversation about the challenge.

    Seem some like and some don't.

    I don't, to point where quitting guild, as forced to retpeat maps against same level perps.

    Greater rewards yes. But still time-consuming and teadious.

    this type of response makes literally zero sense to me....so you were ok with beating walkers that were 15,14,13,12 levels below you and so on for 15 rounds until you got to a level that was remotely competitive....THAT was fine....but having to play more of your rounds against tough walkers you find "time consuming and tedious"....doesnt add up....makes no sense...

    sounds like you just like defeating garbage walkers and now that you are taking bruises or getting hospital time more often then you are just calling it tedious and time consuming when the old challenge was the definition of that!!

    been saying it since it was announced to us: token crate = weak sauce

    I think the token crate needs some work... perhaps less randomness or make it like a radio call... 2 options appear and you can choose which you want...

    Seriously, have I missed something?


    Same in my guild...they don´t understand the new system. I guess after completing a round of 6 maps, they don´t move up by hitting the green button to the right, but the grey one on the left.

    Most people in my guild didn´t realised, that they get extra stars for moving to the next round...

    Good point. I think all Guild Leaders/Elders should take the time to spell it out for the rest. Not all of us are on the forums and get to see all the specifics and discussion. Most just see what the in-game notices spell out, which is often vague or confusing to many.

    However, people SHOULD be able to earn as many or more stars, regardless of their level. They are quitting because the early stages aren't as easy as before, or it gets harder faster. But that's just because they've been used to super-easy "challenges" and probably weren't even aware this overhaul was coming until it was too late.

    I mean, they're called Challenges.

    It´s not even harder...you just come to the challenging part way faster then before.

    My record was 401 stars before...now I´m at 677. But I hit the wall soon.

    Even though many of us love the new system somehow we have at least 3-4 from our top guild quitting after this challenge. So I'm feeling they were already thinking about it and waited for the update and it wasn't enough to stay. They are all 400+ old system. Not sure if other guilds are seeing this. Will be an opportunity for us to promote others but still kind of sad.

    The rest of us are looking forward to the additional content in the coming months.

    Sorry if this is raised a few times before, hard to scan via the phone...

    My reward on a delux box for completing 520 stars was a level 14 epic pistol, but that was the last round of RSL 18... My survivors are lvl16s, Player lvl41, I've pulled some of my best kit from RSL +2/3 missions, just wondering if it's right it gives this at that level?

    @carlos1981
    Seems so.
    Judging from you, someone else, me and the format for legendary crates (+1 compared to this).
    I think it might be along the lines of this:

    lvl ---- equip
    55 ---- 19-20
    52 ---- 18-19
    49 ---- 17-18
    46 ---- 16-17
    43 ---- 15-16
    40 ---- 14-15

    So, from 40 to 42 you'll get either 14 or 15 gear.
    This does seem to add up, unfortunately...

    I am a little bit confused. As per the release notes, the rewards in the crates are one less then the recommended survivor level or the highest survivor level.

    I am now playing level 21 challenges and so I should be getting minimum level 19 equipment. I reached the 400 mark and got a level 18 weapon in the deluxe crate. Is it possible to get -2 equipment????

    Here is the picture. Hope it's not a bug.

    @Shteevie @Teeceezy @zbot help needed

    @zeeblack what level are your survivors?

    The minimum level of items found in Reward or Challenge crates is one less than the expected highest level of the player's survivors.

    @zeeblack what your your player level? Also were they level 20 when the challenge started? What is the highest level of your scouts?
  • jimmorrison369jimmorrison369 Member Posts: 2,053
    This confirms it.
    I, lvl 55 get 19-20
    Zeeblack lvl 54 get 18-19
    Someone In update crate discussion lvl 48 get 16-17
    In a different discussion I read lvl 39 get 13-14

    So previous list, does seem to hold true.

    For me it's unbelievable. I used to get 400 stars in old challenge (including 10-20 quest stars) and now totally F2P using extra gas only from TG shop or adverts I'm already at RSL23 with 700+ stars.
    What's the problem then?

    @Amiga I don't know. To me the new system is like farming+challenge at the same time!

    The challenge will always be a grind and that is how NG needs it to be. They need players on the app and watching videos. Now though, the grind of playing the challenge has much better rewards as well as a limit on the cool down timer. The last time I was almost maxed out on a challenge at this time during the week, I paid for a booster with the no cool down timer. I am sitting at the second tier of level 23 with 2 missions completed at 718 stars without purchasing anything. Let's not kid ourselves here though. NG bumped up the star count to reset the leader board. Very clever way to encourage players to play more.

    If old system wasn't pure farming?? Then what? How to call doing low lvl missions RSL 2 to RSL 15 every week without any real profits? Now we have at least better rewards, deluxe crates, tokens crates ect. I will not mention much more XP. If somebody expect from challenge something other than farming "grinding" then definitely expecting too much.
    It's still the same grinding but more profitable.

    I'm playing Boom Beach for 2 yrs - mechanics is the same. Grind resources build building....grind resources build building - 2yrs the same and still no end on horizon:)

    @zeeblack , edit. Thanks @jimmorrison369 .

    I thought the epic gear was level 16 not 18.

    Yes based on player level.

    zeeblack , dang I can't figure it out. Summarize the issue with all the information with screenshot and flag Shteevie.

    @zbot
    Pretty sure this is about THIS.

    Simple, you need to be player lvl 55 to get guaranteed lvl 19 gear from deluxe and challenge crates. 54 gives 18 minimum.
