July 29 Weekend Event

Per @Terminates's video, this week's event is 2x XP with 5 second equipment upgrade times.

Great event, although something that gives bonus radios or tokens directly would have been better! Stay strong and resist the urge to buy the 24 hour gas booster.

    I've been waiting for this event for quite some time. I have a ton of trade goods to spend. Almost 200k:)

    @Invader I didn't know farming had different versions! May you enlighten me?

    I was talking for the one where you sit next to the exit to kill walkers for XP

    I farm every map with walkers 15+.

    On weekend I would recommend then "farming" the entry points of outposts: only 2 Gas, and a lots of fatties that give a lot of XP.

    Oh this is so goof and bad. Normally double XP is a good weekend event especially with 5 second equipment upgrades but at the same time it's a almost like looking forward to being fed by your kidnappers. Obviously in order to truly take full advantage of this event means spending money and time on the game over the weekend. Of course no one is forcing you to buy the boosters but if you don't then the divide between non paying and paying players grows wider as NG sits back watching their evil plan unfold. Cue the diabolical laughter.

    They should increase gear-drop-rate first so we have decent gear to upgrade.
    So I guess I will pass on gas booster this time. Will upgrade slowly, game isn't going anywhere.

    @JackBauer
    You've done good comparisons? Because I'm facing 3 lvl 18+ Legendary defenders with bullet dodge and don't have a lot of time for farming. Which means I have to decide between farming walkers or get all the Trade Goods because there's no time for both.

    ... Because I average 35K XP in Exploration Missions PLUS opening a minimum of 6 crates post-mission (8 times a day for free) so now we're talking 50K XP minimum for 6 gas. I you don't respond before tonight I will try a couple raids and farm only to see.

    Cheers

    Yep so this is a good test weekend. And only NG will know for sure who sticking with the Rebellion and who breaks rank and spends money.

    @theRealBender when focusing in farming outpost walkers you can get roughly 30K XP and 50 TG for 2 gas and 7 mins. in exploration missions you get some more XP and chests for 6 gas and maybe same time... So its up to you which way you prefer...

  • tallinietallinie Member Posts: 356
    With unlimited gas i would go exploration and challenge missions of course but then you would have to pay for it...

    @theRealBender OP Strength 114: 3 Minutes (not maximising), 2Gas, 30k XP. makes 15k XP per Gas. What is your ratio ?
    (Plus 5 OP Stars)

    This is about all I've been doing for a past several days, so I'll post my stats for anyone interested:

    Outpost Farming: 25-35K per mission (~90K average for every 6 Gas in about 20 minutes)
    **I take in my all 19/legendary Hunter/Shooter/Warrior or Scout Team here (need that melee action for armored/fatties in close quarters, or else I get injured and can't do as many)...otherwise I could probably farm slightly higher**

    XP Exploration: ~40-50K per mission (sometimes more with lucky boxes/videos) for every 6 Gas in about 10 minutes

    Obviously those numbers are roughly doubled this weekend, which is nice.

    So I guess if you're on unlimited Gas booster, best bet is Exploration, since you'll get more XP per mission in less time. If not, Outposts take a bit longer but use less Gas, so it's a more efficient use of Gas.

    Again, this is just talking XP here. You don't get TG through Exploration Missions, and you don't get Radios/Food/Gold/Equipment doing OP raids.

    I've basically been splitting my time between the two, and been pretty happy with the results. A good balance. Also, if I did nothing but Raids at 2 Gas each (I never buy unlimited), I would literally be playing the game all day. Ain't nobody got time for that.

    ...Or do they..?
