It's been announced that the weekend event will be increased epic/legendary survivor chances. It's also been announced that changes to the radio tower will soon be changed.

So why would you use any of your hard earned radios NOW, before the radio tent will be improved? Unless you have deep pockets, don't bother with this event.

Be patient! This event is meant to drain your current radios so you will buy more radios after the changes occur.

I know A LOT of us want better survivors, but getting new survivors really doesn't do much. Sure, you may be able to get a new episode completed, or get a few more guild mission stars, but does that really serve any real purpose? Do you plan on playing this game for a while? If you do, please wait.

Unless they change something for this weekend, the best you will get is a max 19 survivor; someone who will max out after the next council upgrade. What's the point? The point is to get you to buy more radios.

If you spend your radios this weekend, don't complain about your lack of radios after the update occurs, when you will probably have more control over what survivors you can get, but probably at higher costs (that's pure speculation on my part, but what other changes to the radio tower would we actually like, as a mod has already stated we'd "really like" the changes?).

In sum, completely ignore the event that many have been begging for for weeks. /PSA

    I think I saw them say radio tent changes would be in the next update and next update will not be before June. Some post by Teeceezy last week said next update has lots of changes and somewhere else it said no more updates till at least June.

    @masmith93 offering an opinion should not start with: "DO NOT ..." in capital letters
    i agree with @Xiao and will participate for the same reasons

    Thank you for overestimating my powers of influence...I'm not David Copperfield.

    If you desperately want survivors that will put you in your current stagnant position 2-3 months from now, then go for it!

    Just trying to provide some foresight, knowing that patience isn't something most of us are great at.

    @Necroboogie -- my thoughts exactly...there will be Guinea pigs, I'm just hopong to reduce the number of them.

    I'll probably quit coming to the forum after all the "I got these crappy survivors threads/comments" start appearing this weekend...even though everyone should already know they are probably going to get those crappy survivors based on so many posting the same topic constantly.

    @docfinzenburg And that's your opinion :smiley:

    "Do not buy a bundle if you are a new player until you've maxed your storage plots"

    "Do not upgrade a bruiser to level 18, it's a waste of XP"
    How is that any different? It's my opinion, you don't have to follow it.

    @OneLessTitan Well I have about 650 phones saved and most of my survivors are maxed so I can use up 300 or 400, and it is no worries for me. I need a new event and have been waiting patiently for one. I was out of town during the last event in March.

    Baby needs some new survivors. C'mon lucky 7!

    It's extremely unlikely that the callout quality after the update will be better than a special callout weekend. I imagine that the changes will likely be similar to what's going on with Trade Goods. You'll be able to spend even more radios to guarantee a specific quality. If the new update was going to make a callout quality weekend totally worthless, they wouldn't do it. That would just piss off everyone.

  • SlickRickSlickRick Posts: 2,731
    There's no right or perfect way to play...everyone has their opinions so do whatever you want to do.

    You don't have to listen to @OneLessTitan he is just offering a different perspective...I won't be listening to him but I have deep pockets lol

    I'm of the mindset with this game that I if I always wait for something better I'll be waiting forever...but that's just my style

    P.S. @OneLessTitan I hope your boys pull out Game 7 :)

    @MomofSnolpe The radio change is coming to the new update which should be later this month. No exact release date yet...

    Probably making a video!

    I have learned that, " my opinion " is usually not respected...
    ( As evidenced by NextGames, listening to and implementing my suggestion... )

    But... I believe, that nothing will deter NextGames from from doing things, in making money... No matter what we ask for...

    ( that is the way of our world... )

    As for radios... Luck is controlled, by the folks in Finland, to make money... Not to make us happy...

    Oh well... I've got a lousy opinion, that is not worthy of respect... No big deal...
    I am easily confused by other people's, laziness and sloppiness and greed...

    Any guess who might " now " be on my list, ( in 2017 )

    New radio system will not guarantee better epic /leg chance. I bet you will be able to choose type of survivor or other things but chance will stay the same I'm afraid. ATM I have only 1 lvl 18 survivor so I have to call for backup ;))
    I'm sure it comes with new update which is still 2 weeks at least...

    @docfinzenburg -- caps = people reading thread = people sharing opinions = success

    @Terminates -- you think they'd really do away with radios? Doing so would basically mean every person who bought a radio bundle would get their money back from iTunes or Google store.

    @zoson -- your point is exactly why I wrote this post; my guess is that you will be able to call for a legendary survivor for 100-200 radios, or maybe even a bit more...and possibly even be able to specify a survivor class (tho I'm less convinced that will happen). I'll gladly hold on to my radios for this hope...and if it doesn't happen, then there will be another event after the survivor max is increased and I can get survivors that are hopefully significantly more useful than what I have, and for a longer period of time.

    @SpacemanSpiff -- I appreciate your contribution to the community!

    @SlickRick -- I can't wait to see your survivor pool after this event and your radios; I will no doubt have an NML envy boner! And I'm already nauseous about tonight; the blues are the only team I actually care about their success; usually I watch sports just to be entertained, but the blues have some sort of influence on me that is not healthy. Since I'm in the Midwest, I tell my friends of my age that being a blues fan is worse than being a Cubs fan; at least cubs fans knew they were garbage almost every year; the blues are almost always in the playoffs so there is always that horrific mental state: "sports hope". (100 years of not winning means nothing when you're only around 30!)

    @Terminates "We have no clue if it requires radios or not, ...."
    I have this feeling too. This could be a major change.

    I will use for sure all my radios this weekend, 499 and counting.
  • InvaderInvader Member Posts: 2,066
    I have barely no choice to wait since most of my survivors are maxed out or nearly maxed out at level 15. Some are upgradeble to 17... :blush:
  • SlickRickSlickRick Posts: 2,731

    Haha I hear you...as a Cubs fan I get your point completely :)

    I'm hoping this is the year though!!

    I think it has been taken down at this point but there was a post saying they were implementing the radio tower changes alongside the event.

    I don't see why people are so desperate for level 19+ survivors anyhow. The probability of rolling a lvl 18 survivor with perfect traits or even just an epic with gold luck, silver dodge is already extremely slim. People who are crying for them to further dilute things with survivors which won't be useable until the show comes back on must be either crazy or rich. If you have all level 18 survivors with perfect traits then it is in your best interest otherwise you are shooting yourself and everyone else in the foot campaigning for survivors above 18.

    The recent update received is that the new future system change for finding Epic or Legendary survivors will be the same. Hence, if you do not partake in this event, your chances for finding Epic or Legendary survivors will be the same now and after the call changes. There is no benefit to using your radios now or when the update comes. The new radio system will only change the way you search.

    We just received this notice a few minutes ago.

    "The new update will change the way you search" You'll probably be able to get MORE higher quality survivors this weekend than after the update.
  • OneLessTitanOneLessTitan Member Posts: 1,273
    If they get rid of RADIOS to be used in the RADIO tent, then that would be the dumbest thing this game could do. What else would we use to call out for survivors? I guess we could collect strings to connect to tomato cans...and as I said before, NG would be giving back millions of dollars from everyone getting their refunds from every purchase that included a radio.
  • MomofSnolpeMomofSnolpe Member Posts: 76
    @painclasher you're saying there is another update coming this month. I'm sorry I see your new green thing but what is the source of this info?

  • Pain WalkerPain Walker Content Creator Posts: 2,627
    @MomofSnolpe I was talking about May... Not sure if we will get a June update yet and this info comes from NG

    Probably making a video!

    @Terminates @zoson

    What does that even mean? Sounds like meaningless words with no useful information behind it. The change to how we "search" for survivors could just mean we press a different graphic...

    It would be nice if NG devs/staff would actually say something rather than play a game of telephone through video makers.

    And I'm not saying you don't have a better chance to get epics/legs this weekend, just raising the question of "what's the point?" for many players.
  • zosonzoson Member Posts: 2,216
    The point is that increased callout weekend is still better cost/benefit ratio for radios spent than the new update will be. That's why it's an event and they're doing it. Holding onto your radios is only hurting yourself.
