    @abailey362 Sure, one slip up is no big deal. A constant stream of them is a different story altogether. THAT is what has people quitting in droves.

    They want feed back, and thats wonderful! I hope we can state how we feel with out it being taken wrong. I love that NG tries their best to give the greatest game. Bugs happen, they saw the problem fixed it.

    They reduced the star amount we are possibly earning by about 30%. But they reduced what it takes to get to rewards by 30% also. Example 4 stars not 6 to first reward crate & 20 stars instead of 30 for first token crate. Thats a great balance!

    The part I think that is getting to most of us is that they Both decreased the rounds in upper levels AND started us at higher levels. If it had been one or the other the change would have been more fair. As in , start us a the higher RSL but keep the 3 rounds per level OR keep us at a lower RSL but reduce the numbers of rounds in each level. I feel the worst for our lower leveled gamers with this change.

    This is a new learning curve for all of us, and we will all adjust. Some items need tweeking, and hopefully NG will adjust them. Its only day 1 of this new way of working the challenge, numbers will let us know by Monday if it was a good change or not, and by how much.

    ppl are quitting the game becuase they are tired of it, and they want to have something to blame it on instead of just saying they quit to the community and their guild mates.


    please show me a game, mobile, console, pc, that hasn't any any screw ups, or that you can play for 2+ years without HAVING to spend $$$ to continue, get new content, etc

    I like the new challenge set up. Bar the minor blip with the round passes I feel like it's a step in the right direction. Plus double TG's and phones is always much appreciated! I hope this isn't just a one off cause I wouldn't want to go back to grinding through many low level rounds next week. Especially when I have one less round pass!

    For me its not about round passes or rewards.I focus on assult bonus challenges in this game, I just hit lvl 55 and should be earning about 1300 stars. With this new set up, its nearly impossible to get 3 stars on all maps at lvl 25.2 and I currently have 616 stars...that should not be a wall for lvl 20 toons with maxed out lvl 23 gear. I spend alot of real money on this game daily, the leader of a LB guild. This must be a one time thing...or this game is toast.

    Calm down everybody!!!
    Before the challenge startet everybody was euphoric, finally a step in the right direction... blablabla, then, the first problems appeared and the whole feedbacks changed almost completely.
    NG prepared us, they said that problems may appear... so, folks, let them do their job, give them a chance to clean up the problems. Give them the feedback they need but keep focused on the target ... to make the game better.
    I was sceptical from the beginning but i see the big advantage. My only concern still is about the lower leveled player who obviously got forgotten and may stop playing - maybe.
    And to NG from me just one wish. Clean up your mess and when this is done try to make it good to the community, especially those who had problems during that challenge..... now lets lol together

    >
    > Also, I highly doubt you were earning 1300 stars under the old system. That would imply that you were at least getting to RSL28. If you could pass RSL28 levels, you can probably get three stars on RSL25.

    My PR is right around 1250ish at RSL28... but now my gear is maxed.

    Correction: PR 1225 at RSL28

    This new system is amazing in many ways.

    First of all you can finish the challenge on the same day you stated playing it. This way you have more time to focus on stuff outside the game and The Distance campaign on Saturday,

    The rewards are much better and more frequent. The TG just keeps coming in.

    You are also going to get more round passes with pretty much no effort. I am sitting at 8 now whereas before after you hit 5-6 it gets harder.

    The grind is gone which is the most important part for me.

    I keep hearing everyone so happy with the better rewards. I hope all remember that this *new challenge* was stacked with double guild rewards this week? Will it feel the same next week if the challenge stays and quantity of guild rewards goes back to normal quantities? Just a thought?

    This is it. Higher starting level and less rounds per level

    Just gonna say i like this set up. Dont really care where my stars end up, because as was mentioned avove, everyone, everywhere will be reduced by the same relative amount. Less grind = muy beuno for me!!

    Also, yes, the stacked rewards are sweet, and I would lovw to see them stay this way, but that's probably shooting for the moon.

    Not having to grind four days is great.

    That alone makes this a step in the right direction.

    Less grind is always good, so that part is great

    Here's my only beef so far
    No contact at all from support regarding my missing round passes
    With 18 rounds playing I should have 6, but I only have 4 round passes
    There should be a way to fix that

    So far @Teeceezy @Fearofabotplanet @Shteevie I am very happy with this structure. So much less useless grind. And, personally, I like the armored and fatties that spawn at the .2 level. I'm mostly through the grind stage on the first day while having free time, which is refreshing to say the least.

    I "strategically" slept through the round-pass hiccup... okay, fine, I just wasn't awake yet. While I can't say things are all hunky-dory because it didn't affect me personally, I have to expect NG to make this right in the same way they do when the bugs take over and provide the lost round passes to all of those who are missing them due to the bug. I could be wrong on that and if they can't figure out how to provide round passes to those that lost them my hope is that they will compensate in some way. Yes, bugs suck, but a bug that is fixed within a number of hours is much better than a bug that has been active since the releasing of a trait (say, Michonne's leader trait, revenge, Ezekiel's leader trait... well, it's a long list) without an attempt to fix it in the several updates since their release.

    All in all, positive feedback so far on the challenge structure.

    *edited--I didn't know the punish trait while opening a gate had been fixed from stopping their progress even though the punish trait activates and punishes an adjacent walker. Hurray!

    Triple rounds should at least start at max survivor level. I counted on those grindy triple rounds for my XP/Supplies. The extra stars were just an added bonus. I feel like I’m the only person who loved the grind levels. Outposts are too repetitive, can’t play story missions anymore, season missions are good for 1 day, The Distance is...meh, and Scavenge missions aren’t worth 6 gas. All I have left is Challenge grind. I loved it. I miss it.

    You can repeat without advancing a round.
