A weekend event only for people who spend money?

    Aaand the small radio bundle just popped up on my screen... Now there's a limited time icon next to the gold shop icon.

    They still have not compensated people from the screw ups, rollbacks, losses incurred from the reload/reconnect fiasco of March 21, but they have the balls to to do a "come spend money" only event????

    Are you f*****ng serious?

    The problem with that deal is i would have to buy 3 bundles to be able to upgrade one building one level and make one radio call. There is nothing in my camp i can upgrade for 500 gold without using supplies first then paying to finish. So after 3 bundles i would have one building one level higher and a rare scout and have no supplies and no gold and be in same mess as before. Not worth 15$.

    April fools would be those packs being for free but showing up an error each time you claim lol

    And there was me thinking that the weekend events were for all players.*
    Any chance of running a slate.......?

    Before anyone wants to be smarta*se to point out that there is a choice, well there is. Although I didn't choose retirement through cancer, I choose to eat instead of buying radios!

    This had better be a fecking April Fool!!!

    After spending over 300 radios last weekend and getting good zero legendaries and zero hunters I'm not about to buy more radios.

    I did pull a legendary scout the week before that cost around 100 radios, but lost it to rollback a pallooza, still no refunds

    I used around 600 radios outside the radio event and guess.. No legendary survivors. For me whole radio thing is useless

    I used up around 150 radios since Friday, and pulled a Legendary Assault ( my second) and an Epic Shooter, both with a 19 max, so I'm not entirely unhappy with my radio calls. While these were 15s, my first Legendary Assault was with just a 1 radio call.
    But I still shan't be buying any radios!

    btw i think the event isnt actually "radios" per say your buying, it is the bundles, like "carol bundle" and Jesus bundle they goign to make available, i.e the packages with the legendary equipment , survivor slot, and in some cases full supplies.

    now what i dont get is why it's an event seeing as the bundles were available for last couple days, unless they goig to make them all available at same time so you dont need to buy the scout and brusier if all you want is the hunter one...

    providing they get levelling right then actually not to bad an event, although i agree it is clearly a pay for event.

    So they haven't even replaced the bundles that have been bought, and now they expect us to pay for more stuff we might get, or have to wait month(s) to get it fulfilled.
    Or buy a bundle and next day they add full supplies to it, but no fix for those who bought day before? How is that reasonable.
    Please hire new staff who actually care, not the 60 employees at NG who do the least possible or just phone it in.

    People please start posting bad reviews on iTunes or google play, if enough bad reviews new players will decrease and maybe NG will pay attention!

    i cant belive the 2.99 bundle will ever contain full supplies to cheap to do so! the hunter bundle available earlier in the week DID have full supplies btw.

    these bundles arent for everyone, but most the wekeend events are a way to get you to spend cash normally, in one way or another, perhaps more gas or more gold to open more gold crates etc.

    everyone of course has their opinions on this i was mearly making sure it was clearer exactly what the event was, but NG dont actually have to give any weekend events.... people act as if it their right to expect one.

    Spending cash on bundles is one thing, but when people are sitting around waiting to get "compensated" on stuff they have lost (thru no fault of their own) and NG decides to hold a "cash only" weekend event.... That's a bit lame...

    No, it's more than lame... It's downright insulting

    Give us back what we have lost before asking us to give you more.....

    I can see people quitting the game this weekend
  • DaleDale Member Posts: 1,122
    Is there anyone at NextGames that didn't see this reaction coming?
  • ZombieHunterZombieHunter Member Posts: 22
    No one saw it coming they don't care. Pay only event is super lame, worse insulting after all the issues the game has.
  • smokvasmokva Member Posts: 154
    Heh heh heh.... this is a funny thread.
    When I first saw the announcement, I thought, 'Huh. Kind of silly to follow up such a great event last weekend with a somewhat lame one... but oh well. Maybe they'll add something to it tomorrow."
    And then I saw this thread.
    LMAO x 1000
    I didn't even clue in to April Fools until someone suggested it, but it seems highly probable.
    But even if it isn't, what's the big deal? No guns being pointed at anyone's head. And it isn't as if anyone mentioned that you will be offered this lame event instead of compensation or anything like that... it's just a weekend event. Participate or don't but is it really worth this angst????

    I'll keep reading the entertaining updates, but in the mean time, I think I'll google the leading blood-pressure drug, and see if I can buy stock in the company that manufactures it.
    Heh heh heh. :D

    Given my luck with the last radio event, I don't even save them up anymore. So I sure as hell won't by a bundle for the phones.

    It's not April yet for another 5.5 hours.... I'm hoping that NG just started to celebrate AF in their time zone.

    Is April Fools Day a thing in all countries? I doubt it . . .
  • PimpOfTheDeadPimpOfTheDead Member Posts: 654
    I'm sure a lot of people don't just buy them for the radios but for the extra gold bonus for the same price as regular gold packs, I do buy radio packs for that reason but wouldn't have something as an event that usually goes on sale every couple days anyways cause really how many radio packs in a row will people buy? I just buy to top off my gold once in awhile but discouraged about buying anything with all the bugs lately & them offering the survivor bundles again & getting ready to buy them, just to see them disappear the next day & no real reasoning or responses from developers to why others still have their bundles available & I don't

    @smokva never has there been a weekend event that ONLY benefits paying customers...

    @stuffnthangs Hmmmm....now let's just pause right there and really think about what that could imply other than a middle finger to casual players. That's all I'm saying.

    @Neil_J Heh heh heh. :smiley:

    Previously the weekend events were all explicitly for all users. There was no money involved. This 'event' has crossed a very important line where they have started charging for something that used to be free and beneficial to all.

    Not only that, the event is simply 'buy things, they're available!' Ok, just make them available and people will always buy them. It doesn't have to be an event. People want packages of all sizes. Make them ALL available, all at once. Yeah, run specials in there, but make them actual SPECIALS. Something is cheaper than usual!
