    I was happy with this event last time round because I was a relative newbie and upgrades cost peanuts.
    Now I'm lvl 15 survivors with gear to match.
    So where this is a good event for newbies, to the rest of us it ain't without the equivalent XP gain to match.
    So, farming or Beta. I think Beta wins.
    Or, in short, I agree with most of the comments above.

    Roll on next week!

    This one might not be very useful for me but I'm glad we are getting events every weekend now. Keep it up guys

    I'm excited for this event. Most of my guys are level 14-15, and I have a ton of gear I want to upgrade. I just take the time to upgrade survivors and retire them for the xp bonus. Also there's farming, it takes effort but I got here through effort so, just another day of farming. I wish there was 5 second upgrade for survivors too!

    @Teeceezy If we are already upgrading a weapon before the event starts, will the upgrade time be shortened to 5 seconds once the event starts? or does the sped up times only impact upgrades started during the event?

    it does not speed up if you start upgrading it before the event starts.

    I think a "half xp cost/half upgrade time" event would be much more enjoyable for everyone.

    Thanks NG for the event, they are always appreciated.... this one is pretty lackluster though unless you drop tons of cash on xp refills.....oh wait....that's kinda the point isn't it? :expressionless:

    @Necroboogie

    You'd better work on beta. I just trashed your outpost. My bruiser left a present in one of your crates on our way out. He had chili for lunch.

    @Amiga

    Am I missing something,you upgraded...a Brusier wep? And to boot-one that doesn't even have concussion on it,the only redeemable quality currently available to Bruisers.

    I dunno man-I think their may be better ways to spend 450k.
  • NecroboogieNecroboogie Member Posts: 1,108
    Really @jester. I thought all that glittering was your shiny disposition... Was thoughtfull of you to light the incense thou. But just one question... "What's in da Baaaaxxxx!!??!!"

    One I use vs(Rarely) and one I just got..they still dropping-and Bruisers as I understand it..still auto stun up to two levels higher.

    I could be wrong,maybe someone could clarify.

    Incidently,this event forces one of two things to dedicated players,the casual player will not utilize this update effectively so they're ou
  • LawdogLawdog Member Posts: 836
    wow..stupid thing just posted automatically..sorry..

    Anyway-this allows for one of two out comes..

    1-We farm non stop 7/4 9/3..getting dizzy pushing FF.

    Or..

    2-Buy gold for 5 sec upgrade.

    I'll throw in my two cents and say this type of event needs to come with increased rate of earning XP or an XP discount on upgrades.
    I like Zombies!
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    ....or we should receive information week before event to collect XP :)

    Posted in outpost forum that they need to include a new building for exp with a decent scale of exp per level/hour

    The regular Weekend events are enjoyed and since all of my 20 survivors, except the lvl14 uncommon are maxed out at 15, I have taken advantage of this for a few items of gear.

    However, since we can currently only hold 600,000XP and the cost is so high for upgrading any really useful gear many of us won't be able to take advantage of this event or truly appreciate it.

    An idea for a future event would be 1/2 off the XP cost/ plus 1/2 the time for upgrades.

    As I reread what I posted in my tiredness, I realize that others have made similar comments just worded differently.

    Play to Slay. Slay to live another day. Daily players. On and killing walkers as often as we can.

    We need you! We want you!

    It's nice to see events every weekends ;)))

    Even when they don't help me, it's good to be helping someone. When I was a newbie I loved 5s refill. Didn't know that eventually stuff would cost me my kids tuition savings.

    I'm psyched for this event. Now I can get my melee team members buffed up, since I've been neglecting them while I concentrate on all my guns and ranged weapon team armor.

    Time for everyone to put on their farmer jeans + start cranking out that xp ... :D

    Do you still use melee? I haven't used anything but gun users in ages. Am I doing something wrong?

    melee hits much harder usually.
    a lot of people use ranged only... but they are missing out on higher lvl walkers.

    when a walker takes 12 turns to kill from a ranged shooter or 3 turns to kill with melee hits, you can def tell the difference in usefulness at that point.

    I am liking one hunter/two warrior combo currently.
    All lvl15 with gear to match, although still no legendaries just epics.
