    I've just done a deadly on episode 13.
    This is the result - 2 gold, 4 silver.
    Better or no?

    I jest.

    In reality I was hard in the Amiga camp, at the best of times I made my living with an Amiga with a sweet 68060 accelerator. Amiga also introduced me to Lightwave 3D, which I used for making my living for the next dozen years or more - and which, along a winding path, led me to here and now :)

    I owe a lot to that beige box.

    @Neil_J even before this so called "event" at rare times you get chest groups like that.

    I'm still not a believer that there's an event going on right now.

    I am for certain seeing more gold and silver tickets after any mission I run, but their idea of a gold reward is mostly crap. I am seeing lots of common, uncommon and rare gear, but not a single epic or legendary yet and I have run a lot of missions this weekend. Giving us more gold and silver tickets is no prize if the stuff inside is mostly garbage. I am happier to get 4 gas or radios than a base level 17 rare weapon that I would never use and has almost no scrap value.

    There was probably only one legendary to be had and @Lightfeet hit the jackpot. ;)

    I must be one of the lucky few. Since the event has started I have been playing only deadly missions and have seen a significant increase in both gold and silver crates. Almost every mission I have gotten 1-2 gold and 2-4 silver crates. I even had one mission with 3 gold and 1 silver. I spend the bars to open crates until I get all the gold crates. I have stockpiled a ton of gear although only 8 pieces were better than what I already had. I did get a lot of rare gear that will be good for scrapping. I also got 35 phones so thats always nice.

    So this event completely doesn't work for me... Mosty 1-2 silver and very rare 1 gold..

    Is it increased chance for silver/gold mission rewards for NEW missions? Not challenges, replaying a map in hard/nightmare, but first maps.

    That fits with what I'm seeing (yes, sample n=1) and the language is "have higher chances of finding Silver and Golden crates in Mission rewards."

    In general, it seems like a lot of the forum complaints stem from poor communication (lack of or unclear). Even if the "increase" in rewards chance is 5%, maybe share that?

    Sure, some people will complain about anything, but I think most people would appreciate clarity at the start and not having to check the forum boards for more info on every event/update (because they're wondering if there's a bug or uncertain about a new feature).

    (BTW, remember a small sample size can still have a lot of data points! I'm sure @Amiga didn't comment after playing one round. I came to the forum after ~15 rounds looking for more info.)

    Im playing from beginning of the event and I never seen more than 3 silver or 2 gold. Mostly anyway 1-3 max amount of all crates.
    If I will see 4 silver + 2 gold then wohaaa EVENT ACTIVE. Wishes....

    Really exited yesterday with this event, many times I got 2-3 gold boxes.
    It's already finished?!
    Today I get only 2-3 silver and very very rare 1 gold.
    Someone is playing out there...

    Edit: after all I said, I did one more try, the game is frozen, and after restart I got so many gold boxes...speechless

    A bit of a one trick pony, but blew minds back then. True classic.

    I liked this event, not as much as some of the others, but the extra crates AND the reduced price to unlock was really nice. The combo was much appreciated. Thank you, NG. I didn't get anything spectacular from the gold crates, but it was fun getting them more often. Also enjoyed watching many open on the first round. The best part was spending the 15 gold for extra unlocks, then getting a gold crate with 15. :smile:

    It's been suggested in the past, It would be nice to have more combo events. Such as when we get 5s upgrades, something to increase earned XP, etc.

    Anywho, my apologies for the initial criticism. Nice job.

    Weekend event now over & saw no increase in gold or silver tickets. And as far as the deadly exploration missions, seemed to be less than usual.
    Back from 2016 :p

    I have to admit I did see a great deal more gold and silver tickets all over the place this weekend and I harvested many new pieces of gear from them as well that was very level appropriate. I even found my 1st base level 20 piece so the weekend was not such a waste (at least not for me).
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    Yeah this event wasn't the same for all of us but hell yeah who doesn't love RNG!

    Let's hear what @OneLessTitan says when done crunching the data. I sent him results from 120 missions I completed.
    I'm lost.

    Check out the DMZ guild. We're recruiting. Here.

    I got some good stuff here. Got some pieces of legendary equipment and some nice gold boxes of xp, so overall it was an ok event for me. I did like the 15 gold to unlock extra crates, and if it were the norm, I would use that option more often. I almost never use gold to unlock crates now.
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    Agree. 25 for locks definitely too much @eetu
    15 was fair enough

    even 15 is very expensive in my opinion. if you take into account, that most of the time you're getting useless rare gear in gold boxes or low level epic/legendary, the cost shouldn't be more than 10 gold.

    I agree that 25 for unlocks is too much. Before this event I rarely wasted gold on extra crates but during this event I spent 1200 bars opening crates. If they were permanently lowered I would definitely be more apt to test my luck on crates to see what I could find. I just have a hard spending 25 for the small chance of getting something I might need.
