Update 1.8 Discussion Thread

  • I am very happy for this update. Can't wait!!! :smile:

    A couple of questions @C_Lloyd please if I may:

    1. You can now turn your survivors around in the survivor upgrade screen. Why would we do this?

    2. Bandaging requires now only one AP.... What does AP mean?

    3. New SFX for camp defense shooting... What does SFX mean?

    Sorry folks for the questions... I just don't understand the terminology.

    1. You can rotate the character by swiping. Doesn't affect the gameplay.
    2. AP means Action Point. Your survivors have 2 Action Points, you can e.g. move and attack. Previously bandaging used both your APs, now it only uses one.
    3. SFX = Sound Effects

    "Pls, pls, pls, do something against auto-farming. "
    - agree on that one. SOLUTION? - change XP BALANCE
    We know that @Overwatcher said "we working on pretty cool things related to the XP economy" - so changes coming.....
    @eetu
    when the update will be live?

    Looking forward to this new update and fixes:)
    Sounds cool and interesting.

    Quick question:
    I'm almost maxed out on all base upgrades, but will we get compensated for the adjustment in council/outpost upgrade cost, since Im already at max level?

    It's the reason of poor XP balance. Hope it will be changed soon

    Seems like there are some good changes happening in this.

    I don't like that there are no more deadly challenges. I still think there needs to be 1 . There should always be a chance to lose a survivor.
  • C_LloydC_Lloyd Member Posts: 209
    @blynknz There are still deadly missions in exploration missions in story mode. Just no longer in the guild challenges.
  • blynknzblynknz Member Posts: 1,988
    @C_Lloyd, yeah there is but how many play those missions? At least if one of the challenges is deadly, it (sort of) forces people to play it.
  • C_LloydC_Lloyd Member Posts: 209
    I play the deadly missions in exploration to improve my gear :) Its the best way to get gold chests other than with TG. Works quite well :o

    And ya I did enjoy the thrill of an ever increasing difficulty deadly with the guild challenges. Im sure it was removed for a good reason and maybe it will return down the road. Only time will tell. For now though I enjoy looking at the positives with this update. Many big and little changes that are going to improve everyones game experience :)

    Sad to see the deadly challenge missions go away:(
    I like the harder levels of deadly's, better crates better gear + you're earning stars for the guild rewards too.

    @C_Lloyd

    Why isn't there some kind of a leaderboard in challenge events?, where you can see the top 100 players stars in the current challenge + some rewards to make it to top 100 for example
    And the same thing for the top 100 guilds + some nice rewards too?
    It would certainly motivate more players to make more stars, hence use more gas.

    I think we need more than just competing and counting stars inside our own guilds..

    @ZKillerDK Those idea's have definitely been tossed around the forums in the past and I am all for them and i'm sure the Dev's took notice of them but They can only create and release so many things at a time. So we shall enjoy the updates we get to the game and have to make the best of them. I for one am definitely going to be taking a couple days to play around with this new cover ability! Will be awesome to test out!

  • Personally, there's not a lot to look forward to in this update.
    That's ok you can have your opinion, I have mine.
  • NCDawgFanNCDawgFan Member Posts: 2,071
    Lots of interesting changes but I am going to be disappointed if we don't get a new Council level. I have about 3.8 million supplies sitting in storage ready to spend on a higher level Council. No new Council... no new workshop, no new weapon tent. Hopefully the plethora of bugs gets fixed this go around.
  • @NCDawgFan.... We just got a new council not long ago. I do not want a new council.... We need to catch up on what we have to do right now which is levelling our survivors and their weapons/armours. We have lots of work to do as it is.

    I have almost 8 million in tomatoes and still don't want a new council right now >:)

    @weekone Oh, is that why it's so hard to find supplies? Tammy's hoarding the cans! :D

    i think deadly missions got removed from the challenges because some people lose survivors when reconnection issues occur.. until that got fixed, we wont see deadly missions in challenges.. i guess..
    looking forward to"pretty cool things related to XP economy", hope it comes soon and also the change in radio tent that mods said before, hope it comes soon too..

  • @C_Lloyd
    So can one assume that there was a glitch in the deadlies, thus those who lost their whole team will be compensated?
  • C_LloydC_Lloyd Member Posts: 209
    Hey @JudithG
    As I am only a player moderator I can not answer that. I Don't officially know why the deadly was removed from the guild challenges thus I couldn't tell you if that is the reason they were removed or not. I only know what you guys know. Just a regular player, killing zombies for fun :)

    lol @masmith93

    You would have to be on a waiting list.... and I would charge a hefty interest rate to make it advantageous to me :D j/k

  • @C_Lloyd - thanks so much for the timely reply. Fingers crossed that I'm on the right track.
  • KaitlynKaitlyn Member Posts: 164
    @bgbelden - I'm with you. I'm disappointed that absolutely nothing addresses the problem that so many have of the game crashing during a raid = raid lost. So, outposts are still unplayable for many, unless we just want to lose, then get raided afterward (to add insult to injury). Sigh...

    Still 10 minute for 1 gas?? Why??

    Congrats to NG for listening & doing real positive changes that benefit all the players; that gives me real hope for the long term future of the game.

    I downloaded the update (iOS) and was able to launch and was presented with a bundle that I purchased; then all the sudden game rebooted and been in rebooting cycle.
    See attached, but kicker is I don't have a second account. :(
