Thoughts on weekend event?

    Did 3 "hunter" calls. 1 Legend, 1 Epic and 1 rare. Kept the legend retired the rest.

    I used all the radio calls left (45) searching for an hunter (also in my screen the special weekend event call is the one all the way to the left.) The best that I got is posted above. I do understand that chance to get an hunter are only increased and that noone assures me to get the survivor I'm looking for..but.. after 3 times I called for an hunter, I expect an hunter. Otherwise I wouldn't burn all my radio calls for this special "hunter event" (sorry for my english). That's why I am disappointed! And none can tell me that I shoul not be.. :wink:

    I find it a bad joke since I got not even a rare hunter after using 45 radios. Maybe I am out of luck but I hear that I am not alone on this. We even call this event as "higher chance to get bruiser"... It's just another event to frustrate people to push them to buy radios.

    I know some people have trouble finding hunters. The only way to get them is via radio call so, on some level, it makes sense to have an event where they are more likely.

    I've never understood the hunter shortage. I have 5, three of whom are epic with good traits. The others I use to fill in when the rest are in the hospital or as sacrificial lambs when I want to lower my influence.

    I've only spent 5 radios since the update, just to see what it would look like. I currently have almost 200. Until I understand the new traits better, I'm not sure that I want to use any more of them.

    Would love for them to just default to HORDE when there isnt a stellar event. That way, everyone gets what they want....a bit more xp, a bit more gas, a bit more radios....its all good

    Radios seem very hard to find this past few days, when they come it seems like they come in twos and threes but not quite so often as before, though it could always be down to luck l guess

    I ran into a small group of former Apple Store Geniuses the other day at my wall. 3/10 dropped phones. ;) However, it's been pretty dry overall.

    My results for this event:

    I spent 645 radios, 43x15 calls.
    I got 6 legendary survivors, 3 of them hunters.
    I reject also many epics.

    Happy Friday for me:)

    Like many others, I think this 'event' is a complete joke

    Its a holiday weekend here in the us... Sure, its only a holiday weekend in the us but...

    A weekend event that starts on Friday and is basically over in 10 seconds if you can only do one call (regardless of the number of radios you use)

    Not much of a weekend event NG

    A weekend event should be something you can do all weekend (without spending money) - for $50 (to buy the radio package), I think I would get better return on investment by going to a casino and playing 21...

    @Umf Did you do this on all 15 calls for higher chance of hunters?

    @Glookerjdc it's not only a holiday in u.s, today is Canada also on the 1st, so a long weekend for us as well

    Yes, all calls made with this option

    Congrats @Umf! I had no such luck after spending 300+ radios.

    So far so good. 1st 15 radio call for a 'hunter' netted me a level 9 legendary hunter. Second draw netted me a level 8 assault...legendary. Rest of calls, mix of epic and rare. I just discarded them for the points.

    Just did one Hunter call out

    Got 2 rare assaults
    Got 1 rare shooter

    For me this event is called "Increased Chance of Calling Anything Other Than a Hunter" lol
    And I kind of agree with the player who said weekend events should last longer than a few minutes. Don't suggest that i make one radio call each day lol
    Back from 2016 :p

    Lots of hunters, but all 10 calls full of rares.
  • Magee529Magee529 Member Posts: 81
    I would rather advance an epic hunter than pay for the radios. Doesn't seem like a deal to me with only 200 radios.

    2 X 15 hunter radio calls scored 1 leg hunter :)

    I usually don't chime in on too much negative feedback, but I was also disappointed with this weekend's event. I really looked forward to the temporary bonuses that come from past events. As a matter of fact, the amount I played (and watched ads) increased tenfold from the week; but not this weekend. I was certainly not tempted to spend any money, either. If any dev is reading this, I would seriously urge you to not continue this event in the future. Like you say, this game has to remain fun for people to stick around. This was the first time I powered my device down disappointed on a Friday.

    But I don't mean to end on a bad note, because I think the latest update is terrific! Great job on the new graphics and balancing the gameplay. And I think you hit a home run on the new survivor tokens and removing the level cap. Well done!

    40 quid for the radio bundle??
    It's only 30 quid for a ticket to see the reformed UB40 play on the seafront where I live later this month.
    UB40 wins hands down!

    When the event started Friday I had 12 phones. (Hindsight: should have hung on to the 150 I had on Wednesday). Because I've been starved for almost 1/2 year for any kind of hunter I leapt on it and paid 150 gold for the missing 3 phones (an obscene cost btw). I pulled one rare hunter, level 10. What a waste. Chugged through the next 36 hours and got 15 more phones (I REFUSE to pay over $75 CDN for 200 phones, mostly considering the abysmal results of this back-handed and sneakily designed avenue for failure). Pulled no hunters. The 150 I spent on Wednesday yielded me 1 rare hunter, level 11, out of 30 survivors pulled. I know this weekend I only spun the wheel twice but isn't a "better chance" supposed to be just that? From what I'm reading here and in other posts, im not alone in this. Misery loves company.

    I did a few calls to see what would happen. Saving the rest of my radios. I just have one farm plot left to upgrade then I can update the council again. No sense using radios when I'm that close to a radio tent upgrade.

    There is nothing happening during this event that would inspire me to use the radios sooner, much less spend a ridiculous amount of money for more of them.
