    @Dale because this is the DTP family and we're on top Globally. Being on top is an addiction.

    I get 180 stars sometimes 200, and I do battle in raids. I was top 25 global at one time. I'm still on the board somewhere in global I think around 50 now. And I meant legendary gear. I find one the first day or 2 of a new challenge people have more TG than nothing worth battling on day 3. So I like the 2 challenges a week so we can get that legendary gear. Most of my weapons and defense are legendary. So yes I love the 2 challenges a week.

    Addicted to being on top of a leaderboard known to be bogus. :/

    Addictions are not easy to break; I get that. But this is just sad. How much of people's lives are being spent here? I know that some people will use any excuse to play "mine is bigger than yours" but, seriously, do you understand that, other than some people who play this game, no one cares who is on top? (and it isn't even everyone who plays the game. I, for one, don't give a bleep who is on top.)

    I urge everyone to get some balance in their life. Five years from now, you are not going to care who was on top here. But you might care about the things you missed while feeding this addiction.

    In my humble opinion 2 challenges week is great for getting TG for better eqip for getting better gear on higher LVLS and it's a CHOICE PEOPLE you don't have to play the challenge and if you are pressured to do so by your guild then perhaps you are in the wrong guild

    @zoson the proposal you made having both challenges run together is an excellent idea IMO folks that want too shoot for the stars can have at it folks that want grind one challenge at hi lvl for better gear can have at it it's a win win lol

    I do my 220-240 per challenge, am in the top 100 for outposts, have a slew of 17 players in good gear. I play a lot. 1 challenge, 2 challenge. I don't care.

    I pay for gas, so time is my only constraint.

    @Dale We are here today because of a competition. If that sperm cell didn't get to the egg first we wouldn't be here lol. It's not like I'm spending my life savings on this game, I'm just saying that before we wouldn't need to purchase gas in order to be considered the best. Now you do. And that's what I believe is unfair. None of this is mandatory. We all know that but why screw up your own game? There have been so many bugs with every update and some still aren't fixed. What's their excuse for that? Adding new stuff that doesn't even work properly. They're in over their heads imo. And those that play this game a lot and score a lot are getting burnt out fast. Of course the new players don't know the feeling bcuz their max stars can be reached in 2 days max

    I voted for 2 challenges only because NG ties me down to my chair and forces me to play this game for a good bit every day...if they ever gave us a choice to decide what games we play and how much we play them I might feel different...but seeing as how none of us have the free will to make those decisions I'll just go with the status quo

    Well they are WEEKLY challenges but more importantly With cycles coming soon it'll probably be overwhelming to a lot of people to do challenges, attempt to raid, do normal exploration missions for loot, AND do story missions. Not to mention cycling through the same few maps is starting to get boring doing the same missions over and over for the same rewards

    The thing is... no one's making you do it. You're complaining about having options or that your guild forces you to do it. Quit your guild.

    I may be missing something... but what about the newer players?
    Some reach their limit after only 2-3 rounds of challenge missions.
    If you go back to one mission per week, they will have nothing to do after the first day or so.

    When I started, I found it really great to have two of those missions a week as I reached the max level the first day.
    The extra challenge missions not only kept me entertained, but they were a great tutorial as well.
    Just saying....

    Maybe some kind of two-tiered challenge? But I have no idea how that could work.
    I guess the question to ask is what do advanced players like about completing the challenges and what they don't.
    If it's about the rewards or challenge stars... maybe there is a way to start you guys at a higher level without taking the stars away.
    For example: If you're a Level 40 player, maybe you can start at a Level 12 challenge, and if you complete it without injury, bruising etc... you get the full 12 or 15 (or whatever) stars you would have achieved if you played that game 4 or 5 times (or however long it takes to reach that level).
    The gas would be a little more expensive... ie 8 or 10 gas for that mission, but would still be reasonable considering where you start.

    I'm sure you guys could think of a better way to do this without leaving us poor little low-levellers twiddling our thumbs while you fight Level 25 walkers. :)

    @smokva

    I wouldn't worry about it too much...highly doubtful they change it based on a random poll on this forum...would be different if they were losing players or money but I don't see either of those scenarios happening

    @SlickRick
    I'm not worried about this - whatever NG chooses is fine with me.
    I've actually reached the level where 1 challenge per week may actually be preferable for me because I can go higher than I do.
    Currently, I only have time to get 100 stars. (Although with the way the game has been draining my battery in the last week, I'll be lucky to reach 60 for this challenge).
    I would actually enjoy the extra time to try and work at the more challenging levels.

    It's just that I remember what it was like as a beginner and I do think NG's goal here was to make sure the newbies felt involved as well.
    (See? I don't complain ALL the time).

    Having said that, the advanced players are clearly not thrilled about this, and I do think that should be addressed.
    I'm just not sure how.
    But I figure if anyone can come up with a good way to make it fun for everyone, you guys could.

    @smokva I solved the battery problem buy using a portable charger they have them at Walmart called pocket juice or most any store carry's some version.

    @Ovidmikel
    Thanks for the advice, but I don't think that would work.
    The problem has become too extreme in the last week and a half. It is draining faster than it can recharge.
    Even plugged in I would be lucky to get an hour - even if I'm not playing.
    If I am playing I get 15-30 min on a full charge.
    This may be my last weekend of play. :(

    @ wow that sounds like your battery is going bad . did you used to have a longer playing time ? I'm no expert by no means lol good luck with that anyway. And keep your fingers crossed on fixing some good higher lvl and hopefully leg survivors. I personally had great luck finding leg survivors the last leg weekend. 1 warrior which was outstanding. 3 leg scouts and 1 bruiser I used only a cple times and never upgraded. I wanted hunters. Like most I'm sure I had no use for assaults either but now that s almost my favorite class once upgraded with upgraded weapons gotta lovem

    @smokva I have learned a bit about battery drain. 1) Make sure all other apps are closed before launching the game. I have one game that still wants to run in the background even after I close it. If I try to play NML while it is in the background, my battery drains and NML is more likely to crash. Always check your task manager for running apps before launching. 2) Rechargeable batteries do have a shelf life. By the time a device is 2 years old, the battery could have lost up to 50% of the power it had when it was new (depending on usage). Getting a new battery breathes new life into older devices (heck, my old device was 5 years old and on its third battery by the time I finally decided to upgrade it). 3) Restart your device at least once a day. Even though you may shut down apps running in the background, system apps are constantly running, caching, and shuffling data around. As hours and days pass, the bits of old data start to clog up the memory, so your device spends more power shuffling things around while sorting through the clutter. By restarting your device at least once a day, you help keep the memory free of old data. Your device has less to shuffle around and consumes less power.

    Honestly, based on your last post, I think your device's battery is getting old. My former device was behaving exactly as you described. When I got a new battery and got it to 100%, I was able to play for an hour and only use 3% of my battery. Try getting a new battery before you give up on the game completely.

    NOW, back on topic: I hated the 2 challenges at first. However, I have learned how to manage my time. During the three day challenge, I focus on the challenge and use left over gas to do outpost raids. During the four day challenge, I usually max out with one day to spare. So, I spend Sunday working on episodes. Since I am at a place where I have to level up my characters before progressing with the episodes, I spend Sunday doing exploration missions. All of my characters are level 13 at the moment, so I am not as pressed for supplies and XP for upgrades as some of the near maxed players are. It's all about time management.

    @thebluebox
    All really good advice. However, all tried without success.
    With game shut down, I still get 4-5 hours easy (used to be 8+ before game).
    Trust me, I'm praying the mods will provide a solution (I have a comment in issues). I am so close to 500 deadlies I can smell the gold!
    But I have research projects coming up and I can't afford to have the tablet conk-out during presentations.
    We'll see.
    Signing off... I don't want to hijack this thread.
    But thanks for caring enough to post.

    Hello everybody. I'm the leader of España Zombie one of the world's top guilds in the ranks. We fight really hard every challenge to keep and rise our ranking in the list and it's really hard to do it with a double challenge per week... but is true that some people doesn't belong to any guild or just dont play as often as we do and they don't care about the number of challenges per week.

    I think that the problem is not about to have one or two challenge per week. The problems is that THE TWO CHALLENGES COUNT FOR THE RANKING and this is an hyper-preassure work for a guild who fight on the top of the list. Maybe a good solution for all the players could be to have one classic stars challenge for qualify on the rankings (global and single) and another new kind of challenge for single non-guild players.

    Anyway, if this solution is not possible, keeping two challenges per week decrease the interest of top players for playing for rankings, and in that case they preffer to play only one instead two.

    I'm first of Spain ranking. Two weekly challenges suppose expend a lot of time. It' hard compete with people who spend a lot of money so as to compete with those who has much free time. As well as, we have to defend our outposts and play to earn boxes. If we want to update our guns, when can we play experience missions? All of that with a gas tank of 21 maximum...

    Why are some people so obsessed with there being 2 challenges a week , i dont see the problem.... If you dont want to play the challenges then don't , no one is forcing you to play them . Its a great way to farm more supplies and xp and lets be honest most people on this site moan about not getting enough xp. i would not have half the stuff that i have if it wasn't for the challenges
