    So... upgrading to level 21 if you play challenges still doesn't make any sense at all since starting RSL of 21 and 22 will be the same. You will want to move directly up to 22.

    And I just got my level 24 gear ready but leveling up to level 21 is pointless now. So I wasted a ton of time on useless gear.

    Are you sure you've really thought that through?

    For player with lvl 20 survivor I agree. But I have lvl 21's and for me it's reasonable to upgrade soon because the start RSL will remain but I will go further/easier with lvl22 (and of course lvl 25 equip.) .... at least that is the assuming theory.

    @Shut_Up unfortunately all mobile games have a life cycle and this one has entered its death spiral because they all copy one another, problems and all. They will keep adding some stuff until the revenue gets closer to the costs. We the players hate it because we play it with friends and passion and see all of the unrealized potential and want it to last forever.
    Don't worry about NG, they have committed to their investors one or two new games a year starting in 2018. If NG is like other game companies, that means resources will get gradually sucked off this one and put on those because new game revenue tends to be better than mature game revenue.
    Hopefully NG breaks the mold as there is a huge amount of potential here but I won't hold my breath and will enjoy playing with my guild mates as long as possible before moving on to something else.

    Rule 1 of business ethics, at least trying to approach transparency when dealing with your clients @Teeceezy . So glad the the new topic (first raised in 2016) about maxed supplies has been on your guy's list of issues to resolve. #disgraceful.

    As for the new traits, will our current survivors have a chance to aquire them? If not, you have earned another casual player as far as I am concerned. I spent too much time getting to 3 pink to scrap them.

    You guys did do some nice improvements as well though. However, given the current state of things I am going to pull back a bit. You earned another casual player just based on the traits unless you guys "pivot" otherwise.

    Exactly what I meant. Having level 21 survivors is absolutely pointless (if you don't have them already, that is). With the same starting RSL for challenges, you can skip level 21. And even level 22s with level 24 gear should do better than level 21s with the same gear.

    Only thing that might hold people back is XP and upgrading times so they will be forced to play with level 21s for a bit (unless they pay).

    Or am I missing something here?

    The platinum calls sound great but at 32 tokens for 25 phones, the return based on tokens per call is absolutely horrible. Granted, the average will rise based on leg and epic. If the drop rate for leg and epic is the same as 15 calls, you are looking at about 3 tokens per call which is better than the roughly 1.7 for 10 calls but not close to the 5+ for 15s. The guaranteed hero is nice but with no visibility on true rates for which heroes coming up and their rare/epic/leg percentages, not real interested in this, especially as you have all 20 heroes in the mix unlike the hero of the day tokens.

    Now, if this had been a three week "special" event for 15 phones with each day a different hero, I know I would have a different opinion but in the current form just smells as a sucker bet to entice folks into purchasing phones.

    Beware of the shiny platinum object :D

    Cool update.. but so far I've upgraded only 2 gear to lvl 24 and few survivors to lvl 21... and now we have another council lol.
    Of course money spending players will be happy ;)

    I am glad someone is speaking to us on this issue because god knows if we wait on you guys the apocalypse may be over.

    Survivor Traits
    Revenge: could be useful in close maps (like Archive). Let’s give it a try

    I think you might not be interpreting this trait correctly. Revenge is NOT the same as Retaliate. I think Revenge only activates when hit by a ranged attack (e.g., freeman or outpost defender), not when hit by a melee attack.

    I just purchased a couple of level 21 weapons in the last month and now NG you roll out level 22!
    You usually don't do this so soon after an update.
    Unless you provide an alternative to upgrade purchased gear I for one will not buy anymore.
    Come on NG you can do better in this catagory.
