    @painwalker I know you do regular speed so players can see but if you repeatedly press the item (like speed tapping it repeatedly) you can skip having to wait for each one to load.

    Has anyone else wondered what the "coming soon" notice in the crafting station is? Perhaps gear components?

    @DLich I know but the video won't last 2 min then besides I love the excitement when opening these crates.

    @General_Quatre There must be always something that makes you look forward to the future updates right? ;)

    Probably making a video!

    Epic what? Apples, Bananas think you need to clarify that immeadiatly, whats next bundle just say weapon.

    Whilst I wont be buying the overpriced bundle, I would logically assume since badge parts and componets are actually listed and the fact the "Epic" is at the top then it will be full badges.

    @Poppy from watching the @painwalker videos where he opens a shit ton of those crates.... the ? 2 Epic means it can be either a badge fragment or a badge component. It is not 2 full badges. So you get 1 guaranteed epic badge fragment and 2 wildcards which are either fragment or component. Most crates it was components if I remember correctly. Maybe @painwalker can post the "loot list" of what was in each crate. I think he only picked up 2 legendary components out of like 200 random components...so drop rate was very low for those.

    p.s. I'm not getting any crates until I see what the rewards look like in The Distance.

    Have you wondered what badges you can get by mixing different rarities of components?

    @JerryDixon Yep 2 Epic can be any of the 5 component types. So often you can get 2 epic badge fragments

    Also you do realize you don't need that many legendaries as they can still give you epic badge. Even by mixing epics with a legendary you can still get a good one.

    You can actually hit the >> in the top right corner and it just gives you list of what you received.

    Anyhoo, I've been holding onto my components and haven't crafted any badges yet. For some reason, I feel like more info or tweaks to the system may happen and I'm in no rush to start using badges. At least until I get to The Distance or maybe the end of the challenge this week.

    I guess everyone's post about getting rare badges with their free epic components has made me less excited about crafting. I don't want to rush to craft right now only to be disappointed.

    What made me less excited about badges is that I can't craft any on my main account. Not even on another device (where I normally play my second account on, so it's an issue with the account).

    I know they are onto it, but still... and, uh, yeah... I got a legendary part from the TV which was nice. Hope to be able to use it some day soon. :/

    @tpips42 I burned up my free gift like a lottery winner :-) I got 1 epic and 1 rare. Then I collected a bunch from crates and 1 more rare. My take is every extra % or bump helps...however, I don't know who to equip with them yet. Waiting for later in the challenge to see who needs them. Probably put them either all on Abe or all on Jesus...will even out my lineup with my regular survivors.

    Here's 2 schools of thought, off the top of my head:

    1) give badges to your 'weaker' survivor (like Epic Abe) to even out their deficiencies, making them more useable, or

    2) specifically boost already high stats on your better survivors to really maximize their traits. For example, giving a bruiser added health and damage reduction, or a scout extra attack points, instead of the other way around.

    Not sure which way would pan out better in the long run.

    In order to learn how this whole badge system works it says consult the FAQ page. Where is that?

    Just click on the green info-signs on the crafting tab...

    FYI: To all, before you craft your badge, it tells you the range of badge you can expect from the components you are using.

    Yes it does. My range was supposed to be epic to legendary and I received a rare. That is why I posted my remark.

    Did you take a screenshot? If not what rarity components were you using. I've had instances where I changed 1 to a lower rarity and it adjusted accordingly. So far the rarity range listed has been accurate, According to what I know, in order to be epic to legendary all the components would have to be legendary.

    It's seems like a poker game to me. :smile:

    After Pain Walker spent 20.000 gold, now he can't craft a badge with all leg components. This is not as good as it looks.

    Maybe one day we will have a chance to buy 4 or 5 stars components with TG in Trade Shop.

    @VladoII I think leg fragments and components are the reward for The Distance. There are pics of both on the bottom of the mission tab.
