TG Shop

It ridiculous to have a legndary gear for 12.5k when we used to have guarantee legendary crate at 7.5k

2ndly 8 regular token cost 600. So why does it more expensive when it 30 token for 2500 TG ? Usually isnt it cheaper in bundle ?

    I have to agree. The economy logic in the new trade shop is a bit absurd.

    I'm also curious as to why I was offered 10k radios for 2.5M supplies 3-4 times in a row when I didn't HAVE 2.5M supplies. Now that I've saved up my supplies, that purchase option has suddenly stopped "randomly" appearing for several days. Hilarious.

    @Kaitlyn 10K radios!!! That's an amazing offer!!! but the 10K TG for 2.5 million supply offer was limited time and related to the event only. I think there was even an in game announcement regarding it.

    First at all you have less than 9% to get particular armour buying 7500 TG. Now you see what's that even if traits are still random.
    In 7500 TG you have random item + random traits. Good luck finding item which are you looking for ect

    I stopped buying the 7500 leg crates a long time ago after getting very few items that I could use
    A crap shoot at best and usually bruiser or scout stuff

    @DLich You're right! I wish it was 10k radios!! I guess I missed that mention about the special TG offer in the shop. Bummer. Well, now I can stop getting my hopes up every time my restock clock runs out.

    Great point @KelvSG and you aren't the first person to point out the fact that NG doesn't follow the rest of the free world in that the more you buy the less things should cost. The larger radio bundles in the trade good shop are also more expensive per radio than the smaller radio bundles. Here is another example pointed out by KelvSG.

    @Shteevie or @Teeceezy any chance you could tell us if this was done on purpose or if possibly someone's calculator had been dropped in water shortly before figuring out unit costs and bundle costs?

    Costco isn't too happy either that you aren't following their business model. I'm sure other countries may not have a Costco but I bet they do have their own version of a bulk buying store where you can buy 20 boxes of ziplock bags and a huge tub of candy for next to nothing lol!

    @Shut_Up I want to start by saying I completely agree that things should have bundle prices. Now with that being said I think the 250 extra TG's we're paying for isn't much of a difference but also consider the time it would take you to purchase 30 tokens from the shop.

    Typically each reset there's 2 types of tokens you can buy. I haven't been trackin the types each reset but there are 6 survivor token types.

    0 8 Shooter/Bruiser
    7 Hunter/Scout
    14 Assault/Warrior
    21 8 Shooter/Bruiser
    28 Hunter/Scout
    35 Assault/Warrior
    42 8 Shooter/Bruiser
    49 Hunter/Scout
    56 Assault/Warrior
    63 8 Shooter/Bruiser

    63 hours later you've spent 2400 TG's and earned 32 tokens (75 TG's per token)
    or 0 hours later you've spent 2500 TG's and earned 30 tokens (83.3 TG's per token)

    Ah good point @dlich you're paying for time saving but you're theory is blown when you get the 8 bundle in back to back to back trade shops!!!

    Plus the 30 tokens option has the added layer of an influence threshold.

    Sort of like Costco saying you haven't earned enough respect to enter our store. I've been to Costco, that's never been an issue as far as I can tell.

    Yeah i never pay attention to the frequency of each type, i just buy them whenever they are available because they aren't that expensive. I really just think the 30 tokens for 2500 is a two-fold incentive that pushes people towards playing outposts in order to purchase a larger quantity of tokens in a single sitting.

    If my kid wants an ice pop he has to clean his room

    If you want 30 tokens you gotta play outposts

    same logic ;) btw @NG thank you for this option. I want to show some gratitute towards them since we did ask for tokens in larger quantities and this is technically what we asked for Thank You!

    @all, Mega stores would be the one of the first things to get raided in ZA. Mega stores work because of the stores influence and the infrastructure behind it from growers/producers to processors and to freight. In the ZA the infrastructure would break down and there would be a mad dash. Stores can give you rain checks but if the item is never in supply it would be useless. Thanks for an entertaining thread.

    My thinking is that in the new ZA economy, if you want more quantity it will cost more since the store would have to hire more raiders or runners to look for goods. That means more cost. Also since everyone is looting and hoarding there's got to be a better payout if not why sell? I would hoard and keep everything.

    Back on topic, if I need a specific gear, the extra TG is worth it but it's hard to overcome the perception when poster XYZ got the same with buying a silver chest... I've never had luck with RNG so I don't gamble.
