By my calculations, I doubt we'll reach the Billion Walker Kill goal... but then again I'm bad at math lol

    You are bad at math.

    We've killed 310 million walkers in 2 days. That means we've killed 155 million walkers per day. By the end of the week, 155 million * 7 days = 1.085 billion walkers.

    Sure, the 1 minute gas yesterday probably inflated our kill count in the first two days, but people are also more likely to buy gas boosters during the challenge and on weekends, so it's not unreasonable to expect this trend to continue.

    EDIT: Also, even in challenges where we've been 60% of the way to the goal by the last day, we somehow mysteriously still end up hitting the goal.

    We were 155 after day1, so the gas did not help. However people doing other types of missions may have.

    When I say day 1 & 2 numbers I was rather surprised, because like @JayZ (and others have mentioned in other threads) usually we are well down on the target going into the final day.

    I swear they make the numbers up but it's looking good ATM!

    Any idea how many people actually play this game on a daily basis?

    I guess 150,000 players killing 1,000 walkers each (bit ambitious maybe!?) takes us to 150m dead walkers.

    No worries my friend! I bet NG will buff what needs to be buffed to achieve this goal, even if it'll be the numbers themselves :smiley: (still remember results of the last one)
    After all, they could use some kind of succes in community after unforgettable #reckongate, right? ;)

    I could be wrong, but last time I thought we started out on track, then fell behind midweek and miraculously caught up at the end. If my memory is reliable here, then we may well experience the same pattern this time.

    The cynical* may say that NG is making up the numbers to maximise the drama of the event. But another possibility is that NG makes a reasonable estimate of how many walkers we'll kill. We start off on track. Then we grow complacent and fall behind. Then we kick into gear (perhaps with a little charity from NG) and make it over the line.

    *I can neither confirm nor deny my own cynicism.

    I'm guessing the herd is coming on our doorsteps any day now.

    The Mainroad scenario of the current challenge is very good for killing lots of zombies. I went in with a scout leader who has a weapon that decreases threat with a 75% chance and two warriors. This scenario has piles of bodies that keep spawning zombies but they are always the same level. So if you can stop the zombie reinforcements that increase in level from coming on you can keep killing zombies forever! Although after a certain number the xp acquired is only 1 per zombie but its all about numbers right ;-) !! This way I managed to kill 124 zombies before I got bored :-)

    SWAT mission. Finished before things get nasty and any of my survs can get injured. Sad there are only 6 walkers spawned though 8 or more are shown.
