NG what´s up with your weekend events?

Looks like you´re in need for a serious event manager. It´s getting worse from week to week :neutral:

- legendary survivors = not useful for people with less radios, as far as I read here also a bad quote
- radio-bundles sell = an event to spend real money...nice joke
- double kill xp = wasn´t that effordable for me either
- 1 gas per mission = haha...most people started to play after the challenge started. I´m currently running out of headroom (aka strongness), so it´s a pity I´m not having big effort of this event either.

Why not reduced gas refilling time for the whole game instead of 1 gas per mission?

It looks like you wanna get rid of your players, are you?

Please give us something really useful next week!

    This is a pretty good event. The only one that sucked was the radio bundle event. It wasn't even a sale compared to the normal price.

    What exactly is pretty cool when reached the limit to use it, because you don´t own level 19 fighters?

    It would be pretty cool if the reduced gas needing would running not only in the challenge.

    Event started today...runs the whole weekend and I´m done with the advantage :wink:

    The whole upleveling part in the game is a timeconusimg thing. I´m stuck on a level since weeks and that su***!

    It´s more or less the events, that bring some advantage...if they do. This one don`t, and these before didn`t too.

    My 2 cents.

    whats wrong with this event???? It means every 60 mins, people are able to log on and play all 6 maps for stars!! Hell, you could spend today doing stars, get enough and not play all weekend (for those in stricter guilds with requirements)

    I guess i must be stupid because i genuinely cant see your reason for complaints on this one.


    But yes, i admit, some events suck but as mr alibaba stated... its not NG's thought this particular event doesnt suit you. I personally think the radio event is TERRIBLE, ive gotten all my legends out of that event.... so i dont use it.

    You can't please all of the people all of the time, it's great to have different random events and I look forward to seeing what gift they give us each week.

    This is a good event for those like myself who don't see value in going over 140 stars as fuel cost to much. Going to see how high I can get with this event though.

    If you hit the wall because walkers lvl is to high then go do Outpost. Thanks to 1 gas per map I'm sure you will have whole Sunday to do something else instead of challenge. That's cool thing isn't it?

    And this is exactly what I´m complaining about. 1 gas per map just fits on the challenge :wink:

    I´d love to collect some food or xp, or going raid, but there the gas is high as usual :neutral:

    like @Amiga i like the event. i know the gas and time now only 30 mins cool down needed is much less so can farm for some xp else where, one the better events wever had.

    Personally I don't play exploration missions anymore for weeks. Waste of gas and crappy amout of resources. That balance of game is really broken. Outpost also sucks so only challenge is worth of playing.. sad truth.

    Like this event a lot. I did laugh though about the announcement saying let us help you kill more saviors with this event, this cause only one mission has saviors. So not much advantage for that since when you hit the lvl cap you won't kill more.

    Outpost have gotten a lot better since the last upgrade. I find myself looting 500-2,000 crates per raid and only having to search at most 7-8 times. Between one of the top guilds and occasionally raiding, I can now open a legendary crate if I please either every day or every other.

    @Alibaba

    I think you know by now that no matter what event NG does there will always be the "negative nancys" who crawl out of the woodwork to complain...if you give 1 minute gas they'll complain it's not 30 seconds...if you give double XP they want triple XP...nothing you can do about it despite your valiant efforts.

    Btw thanks for your work on here lately...I work like a madman myself but I sometimes wonder if you're cloned :)

    FWIW, I think this is a decent event. Those of us who play for a lot of stars will have reduced gas costs. And those of us who don't normally play the challenges very much because of the high gas cost will have a chance to play more. At the very least, everyone can easily play the mission with Saviors every hour or so, bumping up the count.

    There are events that are better than this, and there are events that are worse than this. I'm not sure it's worthwhile complaining about an event that is creative and helps the majority of people in the game.

    My fav Events have been half gas on all missions and triple XP for salvaged stuff. Really helped me level up my crew. Now if only we can get the council limit raised some YEAR

    This seems to pending a lot. Highest offers are a bit under 2000 here, but usually most people have 0 to raid. Not to mention that most of the outposts are 2-3 level higher then me. I have to spend between 150-200 to find an outpost I have a chance with and a good loot :neutral:

    It is really the majority?

    With level 13 survivors it´s no problem to come to your max in 3 days...even with normal gas costs.

    That´s why I´m complaining that the gas reduction don´t work for the whole game instead of just on the challenge...

    Kind of elitist...or am I the only "low level" player here? Don´t think so :wink:

    how about use the extra gas you arent using on the challenge to play exploration maps, or story quests or outpost or something else that you normally wouldnt have gas for?

    A little bit of planning with these weekend events goes a long way to make them better for us players. For example, it made little sense to try to max out your challenge stars yesterday when the weekend event was reduced gas for challenges. It made sense to play other missions yesterday, and wait to play the challenge missions this weekend to use your gas efficiently.

    There are many other examples where a little planning for weekend events makes them more beneficial for the players. I have no gripe at all with NG's selection of these events for us. I take these events as an another added benefit that increases my satisfaction with the game.

    However, it would be helpful if NG gave us another day or two to plan for these events by announcing the weekend events earlier in the week. I don't think there is any real downside for NG doing this, and it would help us players greatly. It would also add in communicating these weekend events effectively throughout the user population.

    My guild is pretty happy with this...and that includes high level and low level players...we've seen worse events than this and we'll take any bonus we can get!!

    a nice event.
    i want to see how much i can get, and maybe some nice drops, why not.

    the gas cost for challenge should be always like this.
    i got almost 180 points since this morning, and this is the maximum amount that i got until now in challenge.
    and i can do more, like many of you, but i don't have this chance, and it's not fair.
    i only struggle few times and the challenge it's over. i would die to go higher but give me the chance.

    Once again...you don´t get the point.

    The gas isn´t refilling faster at all. It takes the time to refill like on any other day. It´s just cheaper to go on a challenge mission then usual :wink:

    Even if you would always max out, it will now cost you less gas to do so. Gas you can be using on exploration missions to gather resources. So yes, IMHO, it still helps you out.

    Besides, if I play to 100 stars (33-34 challenges) I'm still only getting level 7 opponents in the challenges. That's far below your level 13. I suspect you could play challenges for a lot longer than you are implying.

    i completely get the point. on a normal weekend you are spending 3/4/5 maybe even 6 gas per challenge mission times 6 per full round which limits your ability to do other things in the game because you are spending so much here. now you can power through the challenge finish early and do other things instead

    Yes I could...and then waiting for an hour to get my warriors out of the hospital after grabbing 1 star :neutral:

    There been much more useful events...but that seems to be ages ago.

    Don´t get the reply from the moderator, that they don´t wanna repeat the events, but offering more worse. The horde was totally nice...some gold, some gas, some xp and some soup cans...topped with some radios. Or a generell gas reduce...

    Last events sucked...best was double kill xp.

    Legendary event was just nice for people with lots of radios for example.

    The mentioned above are good for all level players.

    This event is actually really awesome. It gives lots of time for other in game activities by removing the gas burden of challenges. Thanks NG.
