    How many other buildings will be eligible for upgrades?

    Excited to see some of the new traits, in particular the shooter double tap, sniper harness and hazard suit (surely decreased fire damage).

    I just hope that the wrestler nerf keeps the trait viable. I can understand you not wanting people wrestling their way through the distance with low level survivors and a bronze trait which is fair enough but what about for the rest of us that use it to squeeze out a few extra stars at RSL +5? Especially if it is based on the survivors attack power as there will now be imbalance between classes, for instance, a bruiser with gold wrestler is going to be nearly useless in a struggle. I feel like you could have nerfed it in a less drastic way, such as putting a level cap on what you can kill instantly.

    All of them will be part of Update 2.8, apart from the level 23 Equipment drops, which are in effect now.

    -Assuming you have a well-equipped and upgraded survivor, the damage from the new Wrestler should be able to take out walkers of 4-6 levels above [maybe even more, with Badges]. For Tanks, you will probably need to add a few attacks from your other survivors as well as the Wrestling damage.

    I guess it's time for me to make a new spreadsheet!!!

    I just hope the .4 on round pass issue is fixed.

    @paintbeast brings up a good point; the new traits won't be available until 2.8 so getting lvl 23 gear might not be as exciting as it sounds BUT I'll take any 23 gear now rather than later (epic or legendary that is).

    Wrestler doesn't affect me. Sorry to those it affects being changed. I was a big advocate of leaving it alone but it's being changed and has little to no effect on me. Stun resist I'm confused.. If the max is 75 and gold stun resist gear on amor is 75 does that mean luck basically won't affect it? I guess I'll wait to see the patch notes for 2.8 but it sounds like if 75 is the max, and you have gold stun resist then you've hit max.

    Happy about challenges being fixed up.

    those with 3 lvl 22 survivors are getting RSL 14, RSL 19.2, RSL 19.3, RSL 20.2, RSL 20.3
    those with 3 lvl 21 survivors are getting RSL 14, RSL 19.2, RSL 19.3
    those with 3 lvl 20 survivors are getting everything they get now (I think).

    This is a huge change for end gamers. 5 extra rounds (one more round pass) and 182 extra stars i'll take it!!!
