Burned 370 Radios: Nothing But Crap

I decided to try my luck on the "Maggie" day and burned through 370 radios. Most of the "Hero Tokens" were 2. Yes, two friggin tokens for one call. And to top it off, most of the Heros were not Maggie. Here's how many tokens I ended up with:

Abraham: 34
Glenn: 10
Jesus: 32
Maggie: 98
Carol: 8

In one call, I had a choice of 2 Maggie or 2 Carol tokens. That was so insulting. Of course, many of the calls got me rare or common survivors. Yay! 8 Bruiser Tokens!

Never spending a dime on this f*cked up game ever again. I wish I could have cashed in my radios for what NG is charging. I would have netted close to $100.

    I have 1400 radios saved up, and my teammates want me to 'BURN THEM ALL!'
    Judging from your dreadful experience putting fire to them or ask for a refund might be more fun.

    yep, it would not be to bad if they gave you more then 2 tokens. They are not making the game fun anymore. For the short time I have been playing this I see a change as they are charging more and giving less back. They need to understand that players are more ready to give up a few dollars here and their vs trying to get top dollar from just a few. If they want to keep the number of token low make it so you can see that you are making progress at a fair price. Don’t charge 50.00 for 200 radio calls and only give 2 tokens per call. People are not that stupid to see what is taking place.

    Because even if we did follow your strategy by ignoring the new heroes & focusing on original survivors, the odds of getting the class tokens you're looking for from a 15 radio call are DRASTICALLY reduced by the hero token system (and the odds weren't in the players favor to begin with). Someone else (@DLich ?) would need to do the math for me, but I know enough to know that it became virtually impossible to get enough class tokens to do exactly what you are suggesting. Plus they raised the token cost to do it

    And that's only if I followed your suggestion. Never mind the fact that I was actually excited about building heroes!

    My own experience has been that good radio-call results come in streaks. But the bad luck days are miserable, I know. I had personally spent over +5,000 radios since the 2.0 update.

    I feel like radio-calls are kind of like flying on an airplane. If we make it safely to our destination, we don't usually post about it. But if the airplane crashes, it's all over the news & forums. This might lead people to think that it's never safe to fly on an airplane. You don't have to spend money....but there's no reason to be scared of using radios you already have unless you are saving for some particular event.

    @Governator Hang in there, and better luck next time

    LOL @Governator No, if you're still playing this game, then you're on a life-raft in the ocean. You survived. Maybe NG rescues you later. Just don't get eaten by sharks :smile:

    Edit: Then again, NG might be the shark

    I can't do any data collection on this subject because I am cursed by the radio Gods of NG in that I cannot even accumulate enough radios in a 2 day span to even make a radio call.

    But logic dictates if you have a bowl of peanuts (survivors) and you add in a bunch of almonds (hero tokens) into that same bowl the odds of grabbing a peanut blindly become less.

    Or worse you remove some of the peanuts (survivors) to make room for the almonds (hero tokens) so the bowl doesn't overflow your even further diminishing your odds of grabbing a peanut blindly.

    I don't need to have radios to burn to see how our chances of "getting what we want" is greatly diminished. The question is by how greatly is the radio system "watered down". Unfortunately that's a question I cannot answer and maybe @Mark can make a new database questionnaire but at the end of the day we aren't blind.

    Until NG both -
    1) tells us the chance normally
    2) tells us the chance when greater (a numerical value)

    Words like "increased" or "reduced" (healing times) will just be words used to entice people to spend.

    At least when you buy an item from the store you see it's original price and its sale price. With NML you have no clue what either costs. It's just a crapshoot similarly to entering a lottery in which you don't know the odds of winning. You're taking a huge chance and trusting the lottery is legit.

    @SpacemanSpiff More like Lost. I am in an alternate reality and I just don't care anymore about playing. We are all dead and just don't know it yet.
