Mission / Challenge rewards needs adjusting

I don't know about you guys but I am sick of getting level 11-14 crap gear from challenge rewards, I run with lvl 16 survivors I should be getting 14-17 (maybe), atleast the average should be like 14 imo. It really seems like when they upped the camp level they didn't upgrade the challenge reward, it should be based on the level of you base camp probably. Of course we also still get crappy lower level rewards doing the level 16 deadly missions, which I feel is wrong, the range of drops gear level is way too large in level 16 deadly, finally getting a blue drop only to see its level 11 gear makes me not want to play.

    Old goth mentioned in another post that the rewards system will be getting changed in the next update. It really needs it I'm not sure what the point of doing the challanges is as it stands
  • Ghosted2Ghosted2 Member Posts: 62
    this wont change. Why gives us what we need when we can pay $ for gold to play more often in attempts to earn it. We've been complaining about this since day 1 of the game. No change yet, no change will happen.

    Yup. Like OldGoth has mentioned, the rewards from Challenges will change in the next update.

    That's good to know atleast half the issue will be addressed, some time in the future. Hopefully its not a case of the next update that increases base camp level increases the challenge reward max level to 15 ....when we'd be looking at level 16 gear as the max to upgrade then.
    No word on why the level 16 deadly missions drop gear down to level 11? I mean come on I'm supposed to be using level 16 survivors to do its and a gold card drops a level 11 item? It would be nice if the gear range was tightened up abit for those deadlies especially.

    One question remains... When we can expect next update?

    Are you sure that's gear from the missions? I only get 15-17(maybe as low as 14 but I don't think so) from doing the missions. I still get crappy low level gear from the cinema and challenges though
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    And all green for me... From this challenge everything has been scrapped.

    i have an ideal on Rewards , how do you think if we can stock our rewards for exchange , for example , exchange 5 silver tickets = 1 golden tickets , 5 golden tickets= 100% epic gear , 15 golden ticket = 100% legendary gear

    Even when the rewards change won't the maxed out people still be maxed out?

    I mean, better rewards would help them advance faster but is there anywhere for them to advance to? Or do they just go crashing into the leaderboard / bragging rights mess?

    I agree, I'm tired of getting guild and personal rewards like a level 12 legendary... Why in the world would I need that with my troops at 15-16. Not to mention the challenge now quickly jumps over levels that are useful, so the chance to grab a good lvl15 legendary is next to null. What's the point in doing the challenge anymore? Sadly, recent updates are making me want to leave the game...
  • DaleDale Member Posts: 1,122
    I would love to have a level 12 legendary. My people range from a 7 to a 10. But I do know what you mean.

    I just completed a challenge. Found the box with the gold ticket. You know what I got? A level 1, two star knife. Really?

    Why only challenge rewards ?

    All need to be redone.

    Bronze Silver Gold Tickets From chest

    All chest from challenge, guild reward, story mission, exploration mission, daily quest and so on.
    No ticket should give 70% 1*, 25% 2*, 5% 3*
    Bronze ticket should give 98% 3*, 1% 4*, 1% 5*
    Silver ticket should give 99% 4*, 1% 5*
    Gold ticket should give 5*

    Reduce the gold ticket if you want, but good reward when you get them.

    I'm not complaining here. This is just a little weird. I have one shooter who is maxed out at level 7. This is the only shooter I have ever had. But check out my pistol collection.

    I received a level 5 legendary which I have upgraded to a 7. Then I got the level 2 legendary. First time a legendary has disappointed me. Then I started getting stuff I can't use because my shooter is maxed at level 7. It looks like a nice level 8 epic pistol. The level 9 isn't epic but it's two levels higher than my only shooter.

    I imagine I'll get a higher level shooter some day. Is it normal to get stuff that's above the level of your people? Again, I'm not complaining, just a bit puzzled.

    one thing i hate is how weapons above the cap drop. completely useless other than some extra exp when scrapped.
    i really don't see why lvl 16-20 weapons are even a possible drop at this point, especially since the over leveled survivors were removed...

    nothing hurts more than finally getting a good drop and seeing you can't even use it for the foreseeable future.
    As I witness the death of innocence... A predator feeding on its creation.
    Through the fallout of this hallucination, I walked into darkness.
    I must not surrender my god to anyone, or this body will become carrion.
    One step closer to my fate. One step closer to my grave.

    Actually, I've found that losing my entire field team on a deadly mission hurts more. I'm happy to hang on to the good equipment.
  • Camel56Camel56 Member Posts: 550
    Heh heh! Guild just reached the 180 star mark, yea! My guild reward 4 radio, 10 gold...
    Pretty sad if you ask me. Lvl 41 player, using lvl 16s.
  • LanceLance Member Posts: 568
    The item levels should always be around our level, -2 to +1 to what our training center can currently produce.
    It could also be tie to our current workshop level instead.

    Let's define good @Dale, what did you get?

    I promise not to update you every time. I had earned my 12 challenge points and, while I was opening the second reward, my ipad crashed before I could see what it was. (Lid open, flash of light, crash.) I was wondering if I would get the reward or not.

    When I got back into the game, it was on the camp screen so I looked around at my weapons. Turns out that I did indeed keep the reward: A level 10, three star rifle. It doesn't sound like much to you guys but it's my first level 10 weapon.

    So, the reward stayed with me even though it crashed while opening. And it was a level appropriate, even very cool, reward. Two points worth noting.

    fwiw, I am at Council level 9, everything is maxed except for the tents. My seven survivors: all are level 10, except for one level 7. (I, um, kinda lost 3 of them . . .)

    I don't know what the algorithm is but I suspect that being maxed has something to do with it.

    @Dale Have you received any epic or legendary eq? And stop playing deadly missions beyond your level. :p;)

  • @Dale if and when they ever allow trading, I've got some sweet blue and yellow pistols I'll donate for your survivors, survival.
  • DaleDale Member Posts: 1,122
    @bgbelden sounds good! I doubt it will ever happen but I appreciate the offer.

    @masmith93 Yes, I have a few epic and legendary pieces of equipment. I've been upgrading the legendaries and some of the epics. Except for the level 2 legendary pistol I recently received. (I already have a level 7 legendary pistol, a epic 8, and a 9)

    I was doing okay with the deadly missions for a while. :p According to my stats, I've completed 15 of them. But the last one didn't go so well.

    I decided to wait until I could upgrade things before using my radios. I finally got to the next council level and am upgrading the training grounds. The radios come next. Stumbling along with just 7 people isn't the best way of going about it. I need to find a shooter who can use the pistols I have. My shooter is currently maxed out at three levels below the rest of them.
