5 sec upgrade now the monkeys paw

Lol we had to be careful what we wished for... 5 sec upgrade are awesome but when it's 200k+ per upgrade we need a better means of farming exp... Even if you get 20k exp per mission with chests that's 10 missions per upgrade (roughly). This type of event needs to be combined with another type to facilitate it - as it is if you're constantly farming (normally) there's absolutely no danger in maxing exp between upgrades of equipment and survivors.

Please give tents a exp boost during event or increase exp payouts from chests.

    Yeah high lvl gear needs nice amount of experience so many of us probably will not take benefits from this event...

    ~nods~

    At an average of 200k per upgrade, that's not really a lot of use......

    But better than nothing, before I get accused of moaning! ;)

    I'm psyched for this event. Now I can get my melee team members buffed up, since I've been neglecting them while I concentrate on all my guns and ranged weapon team armor.

    Time for everyone to put on their farmer jeans + start cranking out that xp ... :D

    Don't you think we should save our exp for upgrading level 15 gears since new update is coming up next week?

    When 1.6 is out, can we get a "reduced survivor upgrade" weekend event? :)
  • LadyAquilaLadyAquila Member Posts: 625
    This will be most helpful for mid-level players where the upgrade costs aren't so high. For me it will mean lots of farming on nightmare 7.4 to upgrade my level 14 Legendary warrior shovel and my 14 Epic scout armor. Unless they give out lots and lots of EPs on regular missions...(please, please) In any case, I love any weekend bonus!

    I guess i might be considered a mid game player but honestly im neglecting weapon upgrades and focus on getting all survivors to lvl15. Keep getting higher and better gear so why waste my xp on it..... unless im maxed on xp waiting for next training camp or something. The 5sec upgrade id prefer seeing in between a double xp or so. Then i might consider using on gear lol.

    edit: currently at lvl14 survivors (sounds weird otherwise)
    edit2: a 5seconds upgrade item would be something to give out to people placing in top ranking as a reward perhaps to use at own will

    This does nothing for the player who has been playing for awhile. This helps people just starting out. Why would a veteran player spend 400+xp to upgrade a weapon they won't even use when the next update comes out . These level 12,13, and some lv 14 weapons will be obsolete in just a few weeks. Worst event yet
  • SdotSdot Member Posts: 33
    Sorry to ramble on. But does NG just not get it or do they not care? Seems like this is a no brainer. Who in the higher ups would think this a good decision. And prob gets paid a lot of money SMH/rant
  • unduzzzzzunduzzzzz Member Posts: 10
    @BigOleTDs if your xp supply bar is full why not upgrade any/all equipment you can. those items will then yield higher xp when scrapped later on when you need it. its like a really shitty savings account but still better than completely wasting the xp.

    And who said 5 sec upgrade is a good thing? It just lets you upgrade your gears quickly only to find a better one after few minutes..

    @Amiga that is my opinion.. ofcourse others have their own opinion like you have your own. You can point out all the positive you can find but you cant deny that there are still negative effect on this thing. If you find it good then good for you. But why cant i say the negative effect if i can see it or rather experienced it before?

  • NecroboogieNecroboogie Member Posts: 1,108
    Absolutely nothing wrong with the event per se - it's the game that's broke at the moment. It takes way too long for upgrades and costs too much at higher levels without a suitable means of gaining/collecting exp for them.
    This is especially true since newer items will keep increasing in level and the cost to upgrade them will be way too high for the current ways of getting exp.
    Scale back exp costs or give us a better means of getting exp (higher exp rewards for mussions, chests, killing mobs.)

    The real problem with this event- am I gonna spend time farming this weekend or playing beta...
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    @AysatyoPet
    Of course you have right to your opinion. Point is that never 100% of players will be satisfied enough.
    That was with gold tickets event even with 1min refill time!! ;)
    Maybe next time will be something suitable for you.

    Well, another step in trying to level the playing field, and letting mid-level players catch up to the maxed out. Generally not a bad idea, but this will easily backfire on NG when the maxed out players will think many, many times - and hard - about spending a little bit of money to get a faster building upgrade when 1.6 rolls around. I know now that I won't.

    This event is fine... and even if you only use it once, it is nice to get that instant satisfaction... vs waiting 21hrs to use your weapon... odds are yes... you are not going to use it more than a few times.. but it is still nice for those that will use it...

    If you are not happy with this event, just pretend there was no event this weekend...
  • MizifuuMizifuu Member Posts: 62
    This is worst event to date but it is still better than nothing. It would be better if experience needed to upgrade was divided by 2 or 3.
    Lvl 14 Weapons take +600k exp, thats +6hours farming sessions. Not many items will be upgraded this weeked by free to play players.

    I said in another thread we the community would be the judge if these events are cool and this one is not, it's pointless unless you do it in conjunction with an XP boost.

    I need the 20 odd hours to gain the XP for the next upgrade so even though the 1st ones an instant brew it dosnt help a jot.

    Fully agreed.

    Obviously strategic decision but I am not sure if that will work. But maybe because I am one of those maxed out players.

    For sure glad that NG implements special events on a regular basis. Even though I will not use it...

    I'm just glad we can use weapons while they are getting an upgrade, unlike survivers.
    So this event is indeed not that great for some people, i like it that ng at least tries and gives us weekly events.
