    I would also like to add, if you do buy weapons, they don't become useless to you anymore, cos you are not upgrading! You build a great set of weapons and armour for each map, perfect really.

    Just as a demonstration on the penalty in action
    The screen shot below is the final guild score for the challenge that ended on 07/24/2017

    EL34 - Me - I have all level 20 srvrs and just two level 21 srvrs, so I am avoiding the penalty for now

    dav, the guy above me has level 22 srvrs and is a very good player, but he has time to get a few good level 22 weapons and armor

    Bismarck, the guy below me has level 21 srvrs and is a very good player also, but has not had level 21 srvrs that long and did not know about the penalty.

    Jpett, two below me has more than two level 21 srvrs and did not know about the penalty before advancing his srvrs. And Jpett used to beat my score just about every week until 2 weeks ago

    BTW, 1110 is my highest score to date and so I am sitting tight with just two level 21's as long as I can

    I smartly trained my two most useful survivors (assault and hunter, both double pink) to level 22 and last challenge went peachy. Then I saw a notification that I had a new survivor, Gabriel. Not thinking, I opened him up and sure nuff he was level 22, putting me over the limit.

    This week will be my first with the upgrade penalty. We'll see how it goes.

    Rumor has it @Gebobs that the 3rd level 22 if it comes as a hero unlock won't penalize you!

    Gabriel is a scout and so @Gebobs would be accepting a level 21 Gabriel, correct?
    He would only get a level 22 hero if it was of the same class as assault and hunter
    So he is still good accepting a level 21 Gabriel

    He has to be careful accepting the Governor in 2 weeks

    @EL34xyz , FYI: heroes unlock at the highest survivor level (regardless of class).

    Thanks @zbot Did not know that
    I will avoid unlocking the Governor in the next 2 weeks

    Well, I can't verify because since I unlocked that God-bothering fool, I upgraded several others.

    Still, my triple plays for this week started at RSL 21. I thought the penalty was that they would begin at RSL 22 now.

    lol that's what everyone seems to do and can't ever confirm it.

    Triples are: (sum of your top 3 survivor Lvls/3) - 1 so for you it's 22-1=21

    That's the ridiculous result of faulty coding. Again: upgrade your chars and you're benefit with worse results. Great job, NG!

    From what I've heard about the new feature it will be vital to upgrade your toons bit without knowing the new feature I'm still fairly certain lvl 20's will still be my end game
