    So what's the update? The only game I know you are penalised for upgrading. Surely there is NG have a answer by now?

    And still not a single response! They really care about us huh? So I'm assuming since ng refuses to even acknowledge that there is a problem, there won't be a solution any time soon...... so messed up.

    @Shteevie @Teeceezy can you please just tell us something? Are they going to fix this or are we just all going to be punished for leveling up?

    I hope someone has the decency to respond BEFORE the next challenge starts. It's not really fair to all the guilds that are going to lose people when half the players quit.....

    @Teeceezy How does this solve the problem of losing 107 stars when you upgrade your survivors? Unless I'm misunderstanding the announcement, you really didn't address the issue. If I have level 20 survivors, then I will start at rsl 14 and repeat at 19. However, if I have level 21 survivors I will start at rsl15 and repeat at 20. I'm still losing out on 107 stars from rsl 14 & the 3 repeats at rsl19. What am I missing? Shouldn't I be rewarded with extra stars for upgrading my survivors.

    I believe it is expected that when your guys were lvl 20, and you completed rounds up to and including RSL 24, that with 21's you will get through RSL 25 as easily. Of course, this line of thinking does not take into account the walker buff and lvl 21 toons with 23 gear

    So you should be able to advance further. And I think we will. So while there will be losses, it may not be 107. But it will be something until we can get a full compliment of lvl 24 leg gear. Just to get the equivalent number of stars as before

    That's how it works at lower levels. I have an alt account and upgraded survivors to lvl 17 during the 5 second upgrade weekend. I started the next challenge one RSL higher and the repeat rounds started at one RSL higher. I was still rockin' my old gear because I had none upgraded. I can't speak to a loss of stars because I didn't play that account as much the next week. Even if that is the case it seems temporary until I can upgrade some better gear. Since it works that way for players as they level up through the game I don't see why it shouldn't be the same when leveling from 20 to 21.

    @Teeceezy

    In your explanation "Challenge Starting Level Changes" is somewhat illogical.
    Starting Difficulty:
    This is based on the level of your top three survivors.
    ...
    2 or more level XX Survivors ...
    Logically would be for me:

    This is based on the levels of your top two survivors.

    or

    3 or more level XX Survivors ...

    I agree that it's crappy for people in between level 20 and level 21 survivors, but I think people will find reasons to complain regardless of what NG does. If people with level 21 survivors start at the same point as those with level 20 survivors, we might see some people b*tch and moan about the grind.

    I personally agree with your points here, but it's important to keep in mind that (A) NG can't please everyone, and (B) we shouldn't encourage NG to create ad-hoc fixes for things that are really just short-term issues.

    Reducing grind (which was everyone's biggest complaint about Challenge 1.0) is frequently at odds with maximizing the number of stars earned (which is people's complaint now), and I honestly sympathize with those at NG who have to figure out how to please all of the different types of players.

    BTW, for the record @Shteevie, I still think the 69 solution would have still been the most appropriate fix :wink:

    @Teeceezy I second @Loewe1968 point so if i have 2 lvl 21 survivors will I be starting at rsl 15????
    P.s it takes 3 to make a team so it would make sense it's 3 survivors at lvl 21 to start at rsl 15

    I think we argued for the wrong thing, we shouldn't have argued to bring back an extra low level to grind, we should have argued to adjust the rewards accordingly... but now we have an extra level to grind that gives out pathetic rewards before we can get to the interesting part...

    Also, I fail to see why we need to start at level 14 when we have level 20 survivors... I would rather have 4 repeats at lvl 20,21,22,23 and remove levels 14, 15, 16, 17...

    I still want to start at level 20. In total there are too much repeats. The Grind is still there (just moved the difficulty level).
    I don't have the time to play that much. Summer is coming. Beer garden openings are coming.
    Ok, I don't mind what NG will do, I will just drop out of challenges again and wait what will happen. I'm sure that Steevie will monitor the trend and will see it soon too.

    ...
    2 or more level XX Survivors ...
    It does not match "three" to "2 or more". Correctly is linguistically and logically either

    “This is based on the level of your top two survivors.
    ...
    2 or more level XX Survivors ...”

    or

    “This is based on the level of your top three survivors.
