    " NextGames " has all the, numbers of play...

    When enough of the " crates " or " tokens " or " stars " etc... Are " not available " for the players to use ( and, thus cost NextGames ), then the Specials will be offered...

    It's just business... ( they are not your friend... It's just business / money to them... )
    I am easily confused by other people's, laziness and sloppiness and greed...

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

    I prefer to spend 3500 on the epic crates.
    If the gold crates stopped having rare items, I might buy those, but before now I'll stick with epic crates.

    I hope it stays. Starting from scratch, it took me less than a day to make my last radio call using TG. It's a free means to garunteed radio quantities and it sure beats the heck out of saving 7500 TGs for some randomized bruiser jacket.

    i was gonna use my 5k rewards towards a 7500 legend crate....but instead opened 10 x 500 crates...i got 2 x4 radios...3 legendary lvl 19 weapons and the rest was all 30k xp B)

    @BigFellaSteve Yeah gold crates are awesome. Nice pulls.
  • General_QuatreGeneral_Quatre Member Posts: 990
    Do you guys have better luck to find Level 19 Legendary gear waiting for 7500TG or opening 15 Gold Crates? For a while now I've just been opening 500TG crates as soon as I have 500 (since I'm mostly looking for Leg gear but am still happy to get Radios or XP and the like), since this way I don't get raided and risk losing a bunch. Plus 15 pulls just seems good and more rewarding.

    But I'm wondering if my impatience is costing me in the long run, if I'm mostly looking for the gear. I just worry that I'll wait several days to get 7500TG (assuming I'll also get raided at least a few times in the interim; I also don't do outposts or belong to a guild/do challenges much, so I'm basically just waiting for the Outpost to generate 7500TG which takes about 5-6 days) only to get Level 17-18 Legendary Gear, or Gear with bad traits or for classes I already have it for (about 1/3 of my gear is maxed Level 22 Legendary as is).

    What do you guys think/do?
  • VudnikVudnik Member Posts: 307
    I regularly pull level 19 weapons and protective gear using the 7500. Haven't had a repeat yet and am able to put them all into play. Of course, this is mostly because the regular drops of gear are SO poor that I had only a couple legendary items to start with anyway! The gold crates are mostly a joke. If I do pull gear it's usually a few levels below my survivors and only translates to XP when sold, and they are mostly epic and not legendary.

    @General_Quatre if your goal is solely to seek lvl 19 Legendary gear, you are definitely better off just staying with the guaranteed 7,500 crates. 500-gold crates are terrible for obtaining max 19 base legendary gear as it's both unlikely and within a more diluted pool of potential reward types, but 500 crates are great if seeking XP {especially with booster} or if hoping for some radios

    i agree with @Movado - if you're really trying to get Legendary gear, stick with the 7500 TG package. I've had decent luck with the stuff I've gotten from the gold crates (the 500 TG package), but if I'm really trying for a nice piece of gear I go for the 7500.

    @TheDarkSoda the radio phone crate will stay there for now.

    @jester that's some luck there. I spent 10 000 TG for gold crates and got 0 radios. But then I spent 9000 on the radio crate and got 15 radios

    You can also buy the Epic crates for 3500. Sometimes you will get legendary equipment from the epic crates and epic equipment is pretty good any way. You will loose less tg's when raided if you spend it at 3500 instead of 7500.

    You can also buy the Epic crates for 3500.

    Learned that lesson yesterday...bought two legendary crates and got armour two times again. Just like very time I save up 7500 tg (not often...) and swap it to legendary crates. On top of this, the second one was two levels under my survivor level :neutral:

    Next time I´ll get 4 epic boxes and I won´t be that pissed, if I´ll get armour again...

    The price 3000 TG for 5 phones is totally messed up. Explanation :
    1 radio cost 50 Gold
    1 TG cost 0.19 Gold
    3000 TG = 570 Gold but supposed to be 250 gold like for 5 phones.

    Conclusion. 5 radios should cost 1315 TG

    I would use my tg to buy phones at that price @Amiga
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    This is the price created by NG regarding radios but somehow they messed it up.. Intended of course

    The assumption that X value of gold = X value of TG = X value of phones is is a fallacy. The economy of this game isn't the equivalent of an exchange rate between the pound, the real and the rand. Exchange rates are generally pretty close in value and going from point A to B to C and back to A will give you just about what you started with. The economy of this game and just about all games today exists to benefit the game maker. You should always expect to pay a premium to the big man on any exchange in game commodities. Now that doesn't mean I'm saying 3,000 TG is a fair price for 5 phones. Maybe it's too high. Maybe it's not high enough. Only the market will determine that and NG will make it's decision based upon real and virtual transactions. My only point is that A = B and B = C doesn't necessarily mean A = C.

    Keep in mind, for the 7500 TG crates, consult this to make sure the rewards match your survivors:
    I wasted TG on quite a few 7500 crates for my lvl 18/19's when my player level was only 45 - I didn't understand why I was only getting lvl 16/17 gear, so I stopped until I hit 49. (side note, that guide also shows the expected rewards from gold boxes, etc.)

    A gold crate has 4 phones, not 1,2 or 3, but 4. If they made it 1.5k even I believe it would have been an easier pill to swallow......just cant see anyone spending 3k, maybe its just me.
