    Same here bro. Your videos are awesome. I’ve always played “similar” but your style is clean and I love it.

    @JayZ here are a few more items for you to check or incorporate in your vision.

    I picked these up along the way and by no means created them myself but these have to do with Defensive Stance (with Damage Reduction), Round passes and walker strength.

    Still a lot to do, but finished my "favorite teams" post where I share some commonly used teams, how they might be used, and videos of their use at high levels (generally 40+).

    Hello @JayZ. You've created a nice game-guide, both text and video. I learned a lot from it and I like it. You already have youtube channel for your video. With your growing text guidance, it is a bit hard to find and to read your post in forums. May be blog or web is not your preferances, but something like discord, line or fb might be good for others to find something specific and to read your guidance.

    8. Badge crafting, demystified - Added some updated guides, clarifications, and information. Credit to @BillBam for pointing me to this information and @magic for his research and work on this.

    9. Helpful pictures and diagrams - Updated with some diagrams @vshield50 had previously shared

    Hey @Lev. I'm hoping this thread gets stickied for easier reference. Maybe @zbot or @Vane or @Fluxxx can help out with that.

    I thought about potentially using other mediums, but Discord/Line/FB have limited groups and the forums is more broadly accessible to everyone and is easier to edit from the computer.

    Glad it's helpful! For now, this is the easiest place for me to post this stuff.

    @JayZ something about walker movement distance I'd like to add is the 1.414 diagonal multiplier, this means 2 steps is 3, it's easy to think you're out of range and next thing you're struggling.

    Badge crafting, demystified


    3. Go back to the standard badge recipe (Metal --> Edible --> Chemical --> Cloth) and craft 10 more badges.
    4. There will be some weird results that don't follow any pattern. However, eventually, you should be on the other badge cycle. You will not be in the exact same spot, but you should eventually recognize a pattern from the other cycle.

    All of the above is based on information I've read and my own experiences with badge crafting. Please let me know if your own experiences differ.

    You should come out at line #11 or #30 on the 6DR chart on the 10th craft, depending on whether you did the special on line #1 or #20.

    Simple diagram of what diagonal movement and safe distance is.

    Badging strategy

    Last updated: December 3, 2019
    - Assault damage is too low to make it worth using Critical Damage badges. Their charged move is also NOT a guaranteed critical attack, so it's even less worth it.

    I maybe wrong but I think this changed with the latest update?

    @Scowley it did change, assault charged attacks are guaranteed crits, doesn't make much difference though, only on full offence assaults (ruthless, marksman, sure shot) tank assaults with low damage and high health/dr the boost will be minimal.

    I agree and I think this is why we need a destructive LMG.

    I use the word "need" loosely here, since it's hardly anything necessary for strategic high-level play.

    Do you keep your place in the badge cycle between sessions or do you drop into a spot randomly with each new session?

    By session do you mean logged into the game, crafting badges? It will hold your place, if you craft say badge 12 in the sequence and then run out of fragments then you will remain on badge 13 until you find more. Whenever that is.

    What if it's different days/you don't stay logged in? Do you drop into the cycle at random each time?

    > - Hilltop Maggie (some rerolls): Any leader trait that gives extra action points is always helpful! She is great in maps with lots of special walkers/freemen or Outpost raids.

    You know, I'm not a huge fan of the hilltop Widow, favoring my 10-star shooter or even Aaron as backup, but.......

    On my junior account I've been using my limited radios on the Alt heroes call quite often (looking for Rick/Daryl/RGG), which had netted me a virtual fuckload of Widow tokens. The same could hold true for Sniper Morgan.

    That said, I think there could be some advice in this area for younger and mid range players to use these two. Just a couple rerolls each and they are unicorn.

    It'll stay on the same badge even if you don't craft for a month

    @JayZ Hey hey hey!
    Thought it might be easier on the cycle chart to use E for even and O for odd. I myself for some reason have very few badges for slot 6, so knowing the next badge is odd would change my decision on quality.
    Just a thought to clarify just a bit.

    Your work is appreciated throughout the NML community!

    Great work!

    Awesome work. Thank you for that. <3

    Why is the spear the weapon of your choice? The muscet makes more damage as far as i know.</p>

    Musket does indeed more damage but you can only attack one walker at time (except charged attack) while with the spear you can kill up to 3 (6 if swift kicks in) walkers in one turn. Both weapons are great and I wouldn't say one is better than the other, they are just different.

    One last bit, prowling with a spear & follow through you can actually kill 8 walkers in one turn. Follow through gets triggered more often as it levels & can clear a blocked passage just passing by on your way to savage a second group!

    Hi! I tried today for the first time to craft looking at the badges cycles. After a couple I've understood I started from 13 second cycle and all worked like was written until 17 that was a health % badge with hero bonus. Then I have some results I can't find anywhere: flat damage with defensive stance, cc with iron skin and % damage with no bonus. Any ideas?
  • WellyLugaWellyLuga Member Posts: 1,905
    Did you continue to use one of each component or did you change the recipe? If you changed to a 3 chemicals and 1 cloth or 3 edibles and 1 chemical then that can change the sequence @Raffo
