    @Rick_ZK No, the tiers will work just like before.

    so glad we have been listened to. the first game I have been involved in where a major change like this has been implemented pretty quickly after serious suggestion from a large number of the player base. impressed.
    interested to see the rewards now, does sound good though as the current 1000k trade goods don't really cut it at the high levels.
    next up, please implement better scrap value for upgraded gear, investing 2.5mil into a piece that still scraps at 7k is ridiculous. please also make all raids carry a minimum of trade goods, raiding is still largely irrelevant part of the game. perhaps it will be better now with 1 challenge and more time outside of star grabbing, but cycling 10 players with 0 TG and <10 ip is putting a lot of people off this part of the game.

    kudos for this change, it saved a lot of people from giving up I'm sure

    No, the change back to one challenge is not quick. Ever since they changed it to two challenges a week a majority of players have wanted to go back. That's my take on it.

    One a week is better for me.
    I get burned out having to do the same maps over and over again and twice a week at that.

    This gives me more time to to raid outpost and continue the Episodes

    The changes sound good to me so far :)

    looks like I now will have less to do here. With the slower scaling I'll get more missions in I guess, but will it be twice as many?

    This is a time where I feel like people were complaining that their crack dealer came to the neighborhood too frequently and they could never seem to save up any money.

    I'm here and this sound very good. Almost too good to be true. Going to wait to see how it is implemented to comment further :)

    This is how it was in the beginning and is a much better way to go. We lost a guild member to burnout the other day and others had one foot out the door. This is great news.

    We are on the right track. I agree that they need to balance the XP and gas the same way they fixed the supplies.

    Yeah, I'm kind of bummed, but I'll wait to see how it actually changes game play.

    Not sure if you were playing when the challenges first started but there were just one a week with a day off for farming. It was great because you could focus on missions and gathering XP. It is much more important now because of the MASSIVE amount of XP it takes to train survivors and upgrade high level weapons.
  • theRealBendertheRealBender Member Posts: 1,251
    @TheLostOnes I think @Teeceezy is right because the impact would be reduced due to the individual component. You need to get your own stars up for higher rewards & doing that adds to the total for the guild.
    Back from 2016 :p

    I guess I would prefer that the challenge was available all weekend since that's when the majority of people have extra time to play.

    So, we will be at 1 challenge a week with a full 48 hour break between. Good.

    30 minute cool downs. Good.

    Difficulty will progress slower than previously. Not sure on this one. Sounds like the high level players will be getting more lower leveled missions than they were before. Currently, we skip levels here and there. It goes 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 15 for me most of the time (has something to do with the number of stars I have by the time the mission refreshes). To progress more slowly, those skipped levels are back in. This will make the high level players grumpy.

    Rewards will scale based on stars earned personally and by the guild. That sounds like 1000 TG at every tier is out. So, it will probably go 100 TG at 12, 250 at 30, 500 at 60, 1000 at 100, 1500 at 140, etc. (or something like that). Seems reasonable. I do hope the guild tiers start at 500 TG and go up from there.

    I am wondering if we will be reverting back to the old star scale (where tier 5 was at 120 stars rather than 140). Hoping so, but not counting on it.

    There is no mention of a change in gas prices. I am hoping they stay where they are and do not revert back to the old system (which cost more gas over all). My guildies have expressed concerns that the gas prices will go up.

    Exciting news. Sounds like I can justify playing challenges again. Please make it so people can't hold their rewards back so we can get some more tg flowing in outposts.

    Well done NG.
