    Two words. Damp squib.

    Outposts for me have become worse, once the gate is opened it's a choice or either;
    1. Turn around to kill the zombies, meaning wasting turns and getting attacked, or
    2. Go on the attack and get caught by zombies

    The trade shop is terrible, waiting for who knows how long for what you need. I need about 40 assault tokens to upgrade one chap to legendary, I thought I'd get this done in the shop, but after trading for 8 tokens it disappeared, to reappear at some point in time.

    The exploration missions don't seem to have changed, I go looking for xp and get the same old rubbish, low gear and low tomatoes.

    This is not a complaint, I think I'm missing something....where are the legendary gear crates? I've been waiting for them in both my main and my alt but haven't seen anything but epic :(:(

    They are mixed in with the other expensive items. If you are seeing only epics, or lots of gold reward crates, then I think those are what was randomly selected for that TG shop slot.
    We're looking at starting to vary the offerings in the shop now that we have a little data from what we started with, so we can make some comparisons after both have been shown for a couple of days. I will add that the fact that so many folks were asking for more big-ticket items was part of the planning for this rotation.

    If its a "Daily" quest, you should be getting a new one every day. So, yes - if you complete it with 10 minutes left on the timer, you should get another one 10 minutes later. If not, then its not really a "daily" quest - its a "you get another quest 24 hours after you complete the last one" quest.

    More like a "get a new quest 24 hours after logging in with at least one available quest slot", so very likely to be daily if you play every day.

    This system is due for a boost / overhaul, and we have some big plans for it. It'll be one of my top priorities after 2.2 goes out the door.

    @Shteevie I understand the timer portion now. It makes sense and I never thought of the manipulation thing regarding time on phone (it makes sense using the logic you explained) and I am satisfied with that answer!! Kudos!!

    I was thinking though along the lines since everything is server based (meaning you can't play the game without an Internet connection) the timers coukd be set in a way that doesn't require opening a screen. Is it possible to make a timer in that fashion that isn't indicative of using someone's personal time on the phone?

    I haven't tried it but does setting my phones clock time 7 hours ahead push through the next trade goods set up? I don't believe so therefore the timer is based upon the servers countdown time. I was just suggesting making it streamline so I don't have to login to reset the time. Not looking to manipulate it.

    If a time us set every 6 hours for example make everyone's reset the same time. So the server would allow everyone to get a login at 12pm gmt.

    I've played other server based games that have events (like the challenge missions) begin at a certain time. The server time. My event starts at 11am which is 3pm UTC. If I moved to California it starts at 8am. If I change the time on my phone it doesn't make the challenge event start earlier for me. It's server based. Was suggesting making all timer based things in the same way the challenge is based :)

    Good that you added japanese, but sad for the 274 millions of French speaking ppl in 77 countries in the world (source francophonie.org) hope there could be a way to get it back maybe ?
    All the others improvements are really cool.

    Just wondering if @Teeceezy and @Shteevie have had a chance to watch @Poppy 's video above. For me, and I'm sure for many others, he says it all, not just from a technical perspective but his personal opinions as well.
    Cheers Poppy! Brilliantly done!

    @Shteevie
    The longer answer is that we absolutely welcome anyone who wants to put in time to get to know the game, and to plot a course between where they are and what they want. We hope we can convince you that some of what you want is worth paying for, but even if your wallet is shut [through your own decision or someone else's], your time and choice to play NML is extremely important to us.

    This is why we're focusing the majority of the new work on things that veteran players can take advantage of. Better farming rewards, shops with wider options for spending, new missions of the very highest difficulties, new walker types, refining PvP to make it more worthy of your time.

    When we learn that players are working the system to get the most out of some aspect of the game, we get excited. To see people use what you have built in ways you
    didn't intend is thrilling. Just ask the people who invented Coca-Cola. However, if that play pattern is somehow at odds with the intent of the features involved, it can signal that we can make improvements in the feature that was meant to deliver the thing that the players appear to want. Especially if the play pattern sounds tedious or counter-intuitive.

    Our analytics can only give us so much, and we learn a lot of these emerging patterns of play through the forums. We have hit on another couple of things that have changed the course of future updates in this thread. If there is a particular sort of farming you are referring to, let's make a conversation in another thread, and people can weigh in on why they do it, if they like it, and then we can use that information to make the game better down the road. Maybe I'm reading too much into your question, but I love to talk about this stuff,

    Thank you for the thoughtful reply your responsiveness is appreciated. I think this post is within the scope of the current thread but if you want to move it i'm all good with that. My question about farming comes from some changes in the new update and some trends in gear i've noticed over the last few months. There was some talk about changes (weakening) of overwatch strategies and the interrupt trait on weapons. Interrupt on rifles is getting to be very hard to find even on legendary weapons. Combining overwatch tactics with interrupt based weapons allows a player to occupy the battlespace longer and generate more xp from farming. So weakening that approach along with changes to maps that make farming less viable leads me to believe that the developers are seeking to limit farming even further than past updates already have. Map changes might just be the current challenge maps, which weren't great for farming anyway, so i might be reading too much into that part. I don't really like to farm and never did it for hours when that was possible but it does allow you to earn a lot of extra xp which allowed faster progression without paying. I dont buy much but i will buy something i see as a good value on occasion. Long story made short, i think the recent update limits my access to gold crates (gear, value issues aside) and xp which is going to make progressing much more difficult. At the same time i think 2.1 forces me into game play aspects that i don't really like i.e. heroes and tokens.

    @Shteevie I dont think there would be an issue with the way the clock worked if the refresh time was lower. If it was reduced to 1 or 2 hours hopefully people wouldnt need to get so stressed about it.
  • MadPuppyMadPuppy Member Posts: 2,831
    Making it refresh faster would make us come back much more often and reduce frustration.
    The freebee doesn't have to be that often, no one is complaining about that.

    I appreciate your answer to the timers @Shteevie, but I believe that is bollocks. Many many many games have timers out there, and they are not prone to time manipulation.

    Im sure that the Trade Store is populated from the server. I doubt this is a client side process. Therefore a simple check can be performed to check the time etc.

    Maybe the free phone is client based. But again, a simple call back to the server can confirm the time.

    Some questions/feedback on 2.1

    - Would it be possible to increase phone numbers as the guild achievement milestones increase? i.e. first guild milestone rewards 1 phone, 2nd guild milestone rewards 2 phones, etc. This would greatly increase the guild members who would do the weekly challenges.

    - I have notifications turned on for my device. However I don't seem to get a notification when the trade store gets restocked or when the free phone call is available. Is there any plans to add these events as notifications? (Note I got other notifications like gas is full etc with no issues).

  • MadPuppyMadPuppy Member Posts: 2,831
    @Starkhorn

    The phones already do increase at higher levels. For instance, my guild is currently almost at 3060 stars and the reward for that is 4 phones!

    As for notifications, the idea is in the suggestions part of the forum, and a developer said they are thinking about it, and it might be in the works already.
