annoying rewards from golden crates

My survivors are all level 17. My weapons and armors are rangind from level 17 up to level 20. So why do I get such annoying rewards from golden crates?? Can anyone explain me?

    Rewards from the trade goods shop scale with your camp site level, so upgrading your buildings enough should eventually give you better gear.

    Also from 7500 TG crates you'll find not so useful leg weapons... a lot of jackets.. maybe 80-90% of jackets or scout/bruiser weapon

    In my opinion golden creates should give only consumables resources like XP, Supplies, Radios, Gas and Gold.

    @Carlo I'm sorry mate, but I really have to disagree with you...Gear levels have to be improved asap.

    They should make this like any other game when you go to the store to buy something you can pick what you want depending on the cash on hand and the class your looking to get the gear for. Leaving it to chance is not my idea fun but working towards that cool sword is.

    This. The last 3 I got were all Scout weapons. Worthless. Epic 3500 crates haven't been great lately, either.

    I'm level 46, just got to council level 16, haven't upgraded my training grounds to level 16 or workshop to level 14 yet and I'm already seeing level 17 gear from gold crates.

    That's because all my other buildings are maxed out before I level my council.

    Improve your camp and you'll see higher level gear.

    i waste more then 11 golden chest and get only crap items level 8-9 !!!
    same with the 1500er chest.
    my survivor are level 11, my council is level 11, my player level is 27.
    crafting tent is level 8, training ground is level 10...

    before the update all was fine with the level, now its useless to open a chest for me !
    since that, there is no need for me to play the weekly challenge.

    so for now, i can log in and get my stuff.
    maybe play shortly a farm mission and log out for the next day...great change dev's !!

    @Carlo
    One of several balance issues. Many players seem to have survivors way ahead of their camps. This doesn't mean they should stop everything and focus on just supplies. It means NG needs to make adjustments to the factors that determine a player's loot drops.

    Related adjustments can be made with the XP tents. Maybe they should do more than provide a little bit of extra XP - maybe they should provide more BP. Whatever benefits are applied to in-game assets should be stated so somewhere appropriate. The only people who know the secret are those who come to the forums in frustration. Higher camp level giving higher level gear should not be a secret having to be discovered by players through trial and error.

    @theRealBender That is exactly what happened to me. After the patch I've been receiving gear as low as 3 levels below my characters and had no idea why until I just read your post!
  • InvaderInvader Member Posts: 2,066
    Let´s face the fact:

    We have to buy all the shit we need...there comes shitty equipment from the gold crates and even if we save up 7500 tg...which is hard these days, there comes usually armor out of the box.

    No riffles...no guns.

    They come in optional and buyable bundles...

    Even if I crawl out of the highest possible levels of challenge on my bloody knees, there is just crap in the gold crates...

    Capitalism sucks.

    @Invader...

    Yup... The type of " Capitalism " that the " devious & dastardly " Fins practice ( for this game ) is tantamount to " grand larceny "...

    And they know it...

    Stop by their office in Heilsinki sometime, and they are " giggling & High Fiveing " all the time...

    But don't take your kids, or any kids, with ya... Shudder...
    I am easily confused by other people's, laziness and sloppiness and greed...

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

    @Carlo I have had a similar issue. How about golden crates on challenge missions?

    See the link for my post a few weeks ago:

    I have bumped and linked the handy trade good reward guide thread we made I don't even know how many times.. also @OneLessTitan 's comprehensive site that has everything possible for players to know about drops and drop rates . Have asked several times if it's possible to get it stickied for the players use to no avail. I basically have given up

    @SlayerSect Challenge mission rewards are determined by the mission difficulty. So harder missions should yield better rewards.

    Are you referring to the golden 500 TG crates?

    So the trick could be to save all TG untill you get to player level 54/55

    @Conan1976 at level 54 you will still get the level 52 tier drops (level 18) but at level 55 it should jump to next tier and give you the chance at level 19 legendary gear (in 500 gold crates)

    Haha.. Um. . Well I suppose you could just do missions and hope for the best. I'm holding off upgrading anymore for the time being and just focusing on my camp , almost at 54. It's just a shame that all the camp upgrades are basically useless at moment , 4 mil + supplies each is no joke. The double supplies weekend should help tho

    Thank you @OneLessTitan - can never give enough appreciation to this guy.

    I have said it before and I will say again - rare equipment is NOT appropriate loot for gold crates. Gold crates are rare enough already to be filled with such low-value loot. Why do we have such a wide range of loot values from gold crates? If I am lucky enough to get a gold crate, and then lucky enough to unlock one, then I should count on the contents as being of high value!! Right now at my current level I could get 25K XP (appropriate) or rare gear (not appropriate).

    @Conan1976 - You could buy Epic or Legendary Trade Good Crates. At Level 52, you should only get Base Level 19 gear. That's my plan once I get to Player Level 52 (which will be after this weekend).

    @theRealBender -- Thanks for the kind words. And if I could agree more than once with your post about Rare gear drops, I would! (and same for @Japes87). Seems like Uncommon and Common should be in Bronze, Rare in Silver (still not easy to get silver crates), and Epic/LEG in Gold crates. I'd be way happier with the low drop rates for Epic/Legendary in gold crates if it weren't for those Rare drops. Eliminating them and dividing their drop rate into XP/Radios/Food/Gold would be a huge win IMO. Of course, I'd like to see a jump in EPIC/LEG, but I'd also settle for them removing the gear 2 levels below the RSL and adding that drop rate into 1 and 0 level below RSL. I know we're dreaming here, but a boy needs hope!
