    Did you edit it? Sometimes if you edit threads/posts too quickly, the forum software registers that as spam (for whatever reason since it's not a new post).

    And what's up with edits anyways? I see so many people saying: edit blah blah blah...
    Is there a rule or something that you should state why you edited your post? Seems so silly.

    @Avengers

    It just happens if you edit the posts too quickly or too often in a certain amount of time.

    As for people mentioning their edit: it's because they want to make it as sure as possible that others see the edit/see that something has changed in the original post. I sometimes do it, sometimes don't.

    If I need to add something, I might. If I correct grammar or spelling, I won't.

    It's worth reiterating from my updated post that if there isn't a radio weekend event THIS weekend, then this will officially be the longest we've gone without one (i.e. 3 months) since it was introduced. NG has already exceeded the pattern of once every other month on average. Come on now. Do the right thing here.

    Theyve done a few in the past whch overlap (most commonly x plus fortnights of useless hero call rotations) most useful of which typically is an increased xp type plus 5s upgrade type but a holy grailish style increased radio drop plus any kind of non 10 hero call based event is just outside the realm of hope.

    I would love @Shteevie to simply come thru with some class based radio call events like he said weren't considered anathema to him like the icles event (someone necro that old thread and make our events great again!) But painful experience leads grizzled old survivors like me to realize that they would rather have me not use the million days of 10 call hero calls for dufus and his ilk than give me even one more chance to 15 call for an increased chance of bruisers.

    Thats not sarcasm btw i truly would appreciate another increased chance of bruisers class 15 call event (among other class types).

    Aside from ng's proclivities towards bad investment value 10 based hero calls, another thing you'll notice from the event frequency analysis above is that they are increasingly pushing events which cater to both veteran end game players and fresh new meat alike such as increased xp events or reduced time gas or the mindless spamclickathon of the herd. Notice also that these events typically promote the player base to log in more frequently or to play more for extended periods of time.

    With those principles in mind, its clear that events which a) dont promote the twd heroes (non hero calls of any kind); b) dont potentially have the same benefit for the entire player base (class based gating for newer players); or c) dont specifically encourage you to play more during the event (radio call events other than inc chance of radio drops) are events which we're not likely to see.

    Not that this behavior would encourage alternative playstyles like this hoarding business i keep hearing about...

    All this complaining that I'm hearing of how the herd is annoying...doesn't make sense to me. If walkers being everywhere really does bother you all so much, why not make it easier for yourselves?
    Step 1: when you log into game, instead of immediately going for the zombies around your camp, click the missions button.
    Step 2: click the camp button to go back to where you were a second ago.
    Step 3: KILL THE ZOMBIES!!!
    This method allows easy killing because when you do it, walkers come running to your fence. So now you don't have to swipe back and forth and click like a maniac. I do this all the time, not just for herd events. I can usually see all zombies even on my small iPhone screen

    Cant speak for everyone but i dislike clicking wall-ker zombies to begin with. Dont really care about the rewards, the reason i dislike it is because there is absolutely 0 skill involved and its not engaging to me as a gaming experience when i log into a game which is supposed to be a game of strategy.

    Another long term survivor lament is that they at one point spawned the 100 an hour or whatever all at once and you didnt have to log in three plus times an hour for the 30ish per 20 minute to get the same reward (this was changed as a result of performance issues esp on older model phones as i recall...). Thats one for the salty old timers out there whove been surviving on rotten tomatoes for so long they cant remember the bitter taste of an accidental flee on a deadly mission they forgot was deadly!

    @LootHoarder

    But, it's free stuff. Nothing wrong with freebies. Unless it's a free kick to the jimmy. That's never any good. :p

    I'm curious, do you ignore the standard 10 per hour walkers or do you snipe them when you log in?

    @Dodkong True indeed! Cant argue with free unless its a @Jenng throatpunch!

    And i usually do take em out even when im too lazy to even go on a mission and im just loggin in to try and not let my camps sit at max for too long. I just get 0 enjoyment out of it. Like eating grain and fibre filled healthy cereal without sugar. I do it mostly because i should get the benefits of it but not because i really want to.


    And no, if you eat healthy and are all antisugar or whatnot, I'm not doing annnything to insinuate that your life choices are annnnything but intelligent rational decisions made by mature human beings with free will. *takes gulp of a 2 litre of cherry coke*...

    Herd normally gives good gas and radio but can be tedious ... but I'd sooner have the freebies than not.

    Only issue that bothers me with the herd is when a disconnection occurs and it had to be done all over again.

    Think of it like an Easter Egg , where they've provided a sort of whack a mole game within this game.

    I'm starting to think the radio event isn't coming back.

    Like ICELS it's just being phased out.

    @Teeceezy can we get a confirmation that the radio event is or isn't being phased out please? With each passing week it's a new record for length of time without one.

    I'm starting to think the radio event isn't coming back.



    Like ICELS it's just being phased out.

    I said this a while ago. Removal of the 15 phones as a reward for 5/5 weekly mission. Lowered drop rates of phones in post mission rewards. Lowered appearance of phones in the trade goods shop.

    Heck, we haven't seen an upgrade in the daily free call in how long? And I think then it was only bumped to the 5 phone call. It'd be great to see the 15 phone call come back again, but I'm not holding breath for it.

    It's all about guiding players to buying phone bundles. Maybe we'll see a phone event done for the birthday bash or something along those lines when they do multiple one day events. But my guess is that the increased phone drop event has been removed from the event rotation to prop up the bottom line.

  • dandancar77dandancar77 Member Posts: 322
    it makes great business sense to phase out increased radio events. that is the one thing everyone can agree on looking forward to. everyone loves more radios. even though it will cause a few players to quit playing or purchasing, there are many many players who just give in and buy them.

    It happened back when you couldn't level up your survivors unlimited amounts. It was kinda like the gear max I think. Since 3 traits in gear, you can upgrade it 3 times. Similarly, you can upgrade legendary survivors 5 times, epic 4 times, rare 3 times etc.

    The irony is that NG didn't want players to hoard radios for ICELS event, but they've introduced the sometimes offered platinum call and the random daily hero call, both of which would encourage hoarding. If NG truly didn't want players to hoard, they'd offer every call 24/7, including each hero.

    There is NO higher rarity when we use all legendary to craft the badge, we are being punished for having a chance to get LOWER rarity.
    This is NOT WORKING AS INTENDED & it's UNFAIR.
