Is the weekend event working properly?

I got an in-game announcement that the event has started. I've been getting a higher drop rate for phones (I think), but I've gotten the same number as I have in the past from a given crate (1 in bronze).

Has the event started, and if so, is this intentional? In the past, the event gave us higher drop rates AND more phones per crate. Please don't tell us you've nerfed the event.

    This event does not have more phones per crate, just checked it. I guess it just has a higher chance of getting phones.

    Same for me.
    Right after I've read the in-game announcement got 2 bronze boxes with a single phones.
    During previous phone events were 2/4/6 phones as rewards..

    Started game, recieved mail about phone event, restarted game(just to make sure) and this is result. Event is not working or numbers are not 2/4/6 for bronze/silver/gold crates. @Shteevie @Teeceezy

    Yeah,this blows!Stayed up later than usual 4 this!Really?So much for loading up on radios huh..
  • InvaderInvader Member Posts: 2,066
    To be honest...I´m pretty pissed of :neutral:

    With another ten days of special hero hero weeks, they could had give us the higher amounts of radios instead the higher drop rates. Guess we won´t see it anymore either.

    It´s always important to read between the lines...

    Would had buy 2-3 boosters this event...if it wouldn´t be this stripped down version :D

    @Gladi How can you be at level 58 (you wrote "Currently : Level 58") if you received a 15 level bruiser weapon as a golden reward?

    Most likely from a challenge mission at that rsl.
    Must type faster

    @Invader you are right!
    @Gladi I'm sorry. My apologize
  • GladiGladi Member Posts: 616
    @Invader and @PowerUK are right @Rapax . I would love to get lvl20 equip from all missions, but low lvl challenges are what they are. And as Im (usually)fairly limited in my play during weekends, Im running challenge missions as much as I can during week days. Already was lucky twice with getting lvl2 leg scout weapon and lvl12 leg warrior weapon(well, that one was with no arc, so not really lucky). Hope my luck will become even better with some more rare lvl20s, but you never know(irony off).
    No need to apologize @Rapax , all of us have some moments...
    Have to admit, Im bit diasppointed by weekend event now, but maybe that increased chance is still going to net us fair amount of phones. Lets see on monday. I´ll proly go for one gas booster, but only because I need more XP to finish some upgrades and with "fight it out" challenge it is not possible to farm XP effectively. And those lvl23s are damn expensive XP-wise.

    When he gave us the announcement, he just said "more phones from mission rewards". I didnt see the word "chances" in there lol ;p

    Funny...in Germany the events started just 3 hours ago :smiley:

    You're complaining about a bonus event in which you're getting more radios than the standard amount?

    How many radios were you expecting to receive after 4 hours of playing?

    20 missions, 11 phones so far. Okey, but not that great.
  • jimmorrison369jimmorrison369 Member Posts: 1,922
    More then 25, Those kind of numbers are close to 4 hour play without the event (on booster that is).

    The fact seems to be hoarding radio's is less good than previous phone events. Well, guess more relaxing weekend ;)

    Which results in a rather bad buisiness move...if the chances and amounts would be higher, people would had buy some gold alongside the boosters.

    Radios are the most important currency in the game since introduction of the heros. Nerfing the most awaited event after the discount gold call, isn´t a smart move overall...

    It seems to be higher drop rates, not more phones in crates. In the previous event with more phones in crates, I personally didn't notice a higher drop rate.
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770


    I have no mission without radios...

    So we are "all" back to complaining again. NG gives, NG takes, all hail to mighty NG.
    Lets take what we are offered, there is no other way imo. Enjoy weekend play and kill those zombies. :wink:

    We are complaining because the radios we are getting aren't adding up to the radios we got from previous events.
  • InvaderInvader Member Posts: 2,066
    You can call it complaining...or you can see it as advice to NG.

    They´re into money making, but on this base there will no money coming in from my side ;)

    @jimmorrison369
    I buy one booster nearly every weekend and I don't think I've ever managed 25 phones in a 4 hour block. If I get 15 over 4 hours, I'm happy. And this is playing a mix of challenge missions and gear and xp scavenge missions without micro-farming.

    The only thing people are complaining about is the twist that effects the results.

    In former events there were much higher amounts and a better drop rate. So yes - some people are complaining. By the way...the standard amount of tokens to unlock/upgrade the damn heros is still high as ever!

    @Invader
    Whoops, I made a mistake of not quoting someone specific. I understand the frustration at the event rewards being changed up on us players without there being any notification of such.

    So, with that in mind, my comment was specifically directed at @DataWrecker and not the general unhappiness over the event change.
