2.0 created to destroy gameplay and cause guilds to disband

Was the 2.0 update created to stop people from playing? A serious mistake .

    @foxx70 , instead of broad statements, it maybe more beneficial to state what the issue is.

    Not sure what you mean? I'd be interested in hearing your point of view if you could explain how this new challenge will:

    a) Destroy Gameplay

    b) Disband Guilds

    Neither of those things are happening for me, but I do recognize that everyone's gameplay experience is different.

    I really like it! I did some numbers in excel spreadsheet to see how it compares....

    If your goal is gear and you want to fight level 20 walkers, you can now get there in 6 waves. The previous version took about 17 waves. That is a lot less grinding!

    Sure those initial waves of level 1 walkers were very easy, and if you wanted to, you could just get 6 stars, get 400 TG and check out.

    However, I like to get to the higher levels where the real rewards are. Now I can get there faster and the rewards are better.

    hey man. out of 5 crates -deluxe and regular ive gotten experience from all of them but i'm still loving challenge 2.0. look at it this way. in a regular guild making the 1920 target or so you only really got like 15 odd radios and a handful of tg from a boring grind of low level missions. but the token crates got me 15 morgan tokens and 16 bruiser tokens and i'm already way ahead of the old system in terms of rewards. what's not to like?

    @zbot low lvls are out of gas instantly due to 3 gas round higher even faster. .

    New and better gear ? Bull still getting epic and legendary gear 4 or 5 levels too low . When the gear worth getting hits ? Its garbage one or two tier lvl not one good peice.

    When we set a 150 star minimum for our guild people could scrape out 1 or 2 stars on the easiest challenges until they hit the invisible wall . Now if a difficult challenge stops you ?
    You cant replay easy challenges for the extra stars if you have a 0 star challenge .
    Having 3 star 2 star 2 star 1 star 2star 0 star you are done no advantage to locking people up .
    Even though they could go 2 or three more lvls in the easy lvls

    After just a few rounds people are taking damage . FIRST DAY HOSPITAL IS PACKED.
    Some people use there low lvl survivors in the beginning of the old challenges saving higher level survivors for tougher challenges . Now low lvl toons that have low gear are COMPLETELY USELESS.

    NOT ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS ARE MINE . AND THERE'S MANY MANY MORE ISSUES NOT STATED . AND SOME THAT ARE YET TO BE FOUND .

    @foxx70 I almost feel like u are complaining just to complain at this point...idk...u talked about how someone in ur guild couldn't Crack 150 and I showed how basically that should be impossible barring just a horrendous playing style...u completely ignore that post...and now say u miss the quest stars...which at best was like 10 bonus stars for a whole challenge...

    Now u get 10-20 bonus stars every 6 missions!!!! How can u miss the 7 extra stars u got before when now u get 100+...makes no sense sometimes what u are complaining about...

    For the sake of the argument.
    Stars value is not the same as before.

    Comparing with the old system is like comparing 2 different currencies.

    Not sure why I have to repeat level 19 three times. I guess they want me to rack up more points.

    This is a very good thing. If it goes up a whole RSL every single round, you'll go as far as you can in a day or two. Making you do each round 3 times for RSL-1 and up means more stars and more rewards.

    Do you prefer 3x RSL 19 or 10x RSL 2-11??
    Answer is simple with no doubt.

    I disagree with you saying that the update will disband guilds, that the choice of the player or leader, but I do agree about the Quest Bonus stars, wished they kept that

    In my guild only half - meaning 10 players - are considering if they will play Challenge in next week or not at all. The new Challenge is even time-consuming that earlier Challenge, which was very time-consuming. And repetitive, more same missions, if you haven't noticed yet ;P

    Naturally it depends of playing habit. Some players like to get more stages for weekends, some prefers to have family, hobbies, physical activities, Netflix maratons and so on. Some have to work also.

    I don't mind doing challenges in the weekend. It isn't like you have to play all weekend. Just 15 minutes every 4 hours. (and that is the absolute maximum you need, most of the times I do much less and still get high challenge stars.)

    Challenge 2.0 is the best change so far. My guild mates are hitting 600/ 700 stars mark. I am lazy but I think 400 would not be a problem for me to hit.

    To be honest, I really miss the bonus stars. However, the end stars at completion of stage have more than adequately compensated them.

    Yes...but what´s the deal if every player makes more stars?

    Reflection of stars amount is different so I don't see the reason why we should compare it to old challenge. Forget about it and keep going...

    If some issues are "yet to be found" how do you know they are there? Would also like clarification on the "many many more issues not stated." Based on what you've posted in this thread, it's a strategy problem or a survivor/gear problem. Melee survivors are basically worthless versus burning walkers, because you'll take damage EVERY time. If you've neglected your ranged survivors/gear and focused on melee, that's on you. I had the opposite problem. I focused on ranged survivors/gear at the expense of my melees, and it holds me back a bit on some challenges. Just so happens to be an advantage on this one.

    My only gripe with 2.0 so far is that the challenges were previously just a long A$$ boring grind
    Having to repeat the same maps over and over again = incredibly boring.
    I was hoping the challenges would be shortened

    So if I hit 370 stars before the update, I would roughly have to play this many maps
    370 / 3 = 123
    Assuming I had no quest or got 3 stars on all the maps

    Update 2.0 seems to be the same grind as before
    Every level has to be repeated 3 times, so 6 maps x 3 = 18 times for each level

    I started on level 13 and currently am at level 20
    So that's (8 levels x 18 maps = 108) maps

    And I am not done yet, it seems I will be going onto level 21 today
    Or I could just say eff it go do something else that is way more fun than grinding away on a tablet

    But I feel obligated to my guild to do my best, so I will trudge on I guess

    I was hoping the new challenge could be knocked out in a couple days
