Radio Tent - seriously?!

It will take some time before we ll able to upgrade radio tent on level 8. That council scr*w us all on all fronts. That being said, i notice something a bit suspicious. In last 7 days or so i v been calling at least 10 times (10x15) and what i got in return can't be called just bad luck. My result is 9 rares and one epic survivor. I feel like the odd for getting decent survivor decreased significantly lately. Now, game is going to get even harder and if the situation remain the same, i am afraid for all of us. So it will eventually all come to... buy to win scheme. As if it's not enough already.

    the problem here is every time you make a call, even if it's consecutive calls, the percentage drop gets reset every time.

    i could suggest something from another game.. they have this thing called "summon box". if this can be implemented here, it goes something like this; summon box got 2 legendary, 8 epics, 30 rares. everytime you use a radio, if you got for example a rare survivor, the counter on rare drops down. if its 30, it becomes 29. if you got an epic, the counter on epic drops down to 7. if you manage to reduce the counter on rares to zero, then using a 15radio call will guarantee an epic or legendary since 15 radio only calls rare and above. this summon box resets every week. if you're so lucky to find 2 legendary on the early tries, then you have to wait for another week for the summon box to reset to have a chance again for legendary.. the only problem with this is the legendary could be any class. but atleast the chance of getting a legendary is better if you manage to keep many radios..

    @AysatyoPet interesting. I think many of us would like to see something like this.

    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!

    Funny thing is that i usually pull better survivors when the radio tent event is not active. I am aware of percentage and all but i think everyone expect a bit better results with 15 radio calls. Interesting idea @AysatyoPet, my guild mate :smiley:

    Dont get me wrong, i love the game and have sunk hours upon hours into it but the greats trick NG ever pulled on us is was the radio tent, giving us the impression that the odds of getting a useful surviver was bigger by upgrading it and using 15 radios at a time..
  • PutchucoPutchuco Member Posts: 1,289
    I like the idea of the 'summons box', we need to level the playing field a little bit.
    A 1% chance for a Legendary does mean for some people that they will NEVER see one,
    While others have more than 10.

    Yes, having Legendaries doesn't make THAT much of a difference in the game. One could play this game perfectly fine with Rare survivors. Nobody gets 100 extra starz just because the team is made up of all Legendaries.

    @OldGoth yesss. I have enough of current radio system. For last month I spent 500 radios to get 1 leg Bruiser. I give up for now... Savings phones for future.
    Will it come with Outpost update??

    To get survivors with higher max lvl you have to upgrade radio tower anyway.

    Not getting legendary is good for the game. It's shouldn't be an automatic leg just because you spend 300 phones. It makes the game more fun. If you are full of lvl 20 leg, then what? Why try and get more? It's good for the game that they are extremely rare.

    I think the odds should be a little higher. I spent around 800 phones during the two bonus events and only got 1 legendary bruiser in each event. They could double the odds and I'd hardly be swimming in legendaries (I'd now have 4 legendary bruisers ;) )

    If you spend a lot of your time playing the game and you use so many x15 radio calls... of course you expect something in return.

    10x(15) radio calls = 9 low level rares and 1 low level epic. I could use 30x(5) radio calls and get almost the same... thats the point.

    I know how it was before and it isn`t any more, not even close. Thanks for the info @OldGoth , looking forward to see whats new.

    "Being worked on".. so it means it wont be on 1.6? Just to be clear so no one will expect it to be on 1.6

    @AysatyoPet
    I understood that the new version of radio calls is coming sometime in future update, not 1.6
  • JazzJazz Member Posts: 125
    So..that sucks. If changes aren't being made to the radio tent with 1.6 update, how am I going to get new Hunters or Warriors? (I have two hunters, both epic, one maxed out at 15, the other maxes out at level 16).
    And I used far more than 280+ radios, even during the increased legendary chance events, not ONE single Hunter, rare or otherwise. Of course I'd prefer if they're legendary or epic, but I'd settle for rare that has high cap levels at this point.

    For those who don't get why Legendary or Epic players are so "important" or "worth it" to players,
    Look at the difference between base levels of a legendary warrior vs. an common one at level 15:

    Legendary has a difference of +84 base damage and +127 difference of base health in comparison to same level common warrior. That's a pretty huge spike, i.e they're much stronger players. Now imagine even stronger weapons in that legendary's hands.

    Common warrior 15 - (Damage: 306; Health: 467)
    Legendary warrior 15 - (Damage: 390; Health: 597)

    I've been playing about 3 months, I think, and I've gotten 3 legendary's, and 2 are warriors that both max at 17, my team now consists of 3 epics, 1 epic assault and 2 epic hunters all currently lvl 15, but can go to 18, so I'm ok with that. About spending money, I'm ok with spending $20 here and there, it's how they can afford to make and keep the game up and running. So remember that next time.
  • OldGothOldGoth Staff Posts: 297
    No, not yet in 1.6. Just wanted to let you know that we know you guys feel like the radio calls could be improved, and we're now working on it. :)
  • Cherokee_RoseCherokee_Rose Moderator Posts: 794
    No legendaries for me yet. Most of my survivors are epics though and I acquired most of them during the increased drop weekend, so I'm very grateful for that. My hubby has a few legendaries and does produce more stars but not really that many more. I'm just going to work with what I got until my day comes. :smile:

    So far I got 1 legendary and 3 epics. All of them with 15 calls. I was lucky with legendary one. I find her soon after one of my epic dead...
  • ThrillzeekerThrillzeeker Member Posts: 18
    I have got only 2 leg and multiple epics and too many rare ones. Now I don't use any of my radios until I had upgreided tent higher lvl.. I've got 104 radios waiting for usage..

    @TheMurphy - "Already works in this way, start with some 1 radio call and then switch to 15 radio calls will give best result, 5 radio calls are useless. Leggendary is 0,05%, epic 0,07%, rare 0,089% chance"

    @TheMurphy, is that true? I haven't seen the mods release any official stats, and others have just guessing at percentages; Is what you said accurate?
