To trade or not to trade?

From the weekend event notes:

"In addition, this weekend the Trade Good Shop also offers trades of Supplies for equipment. Do keep it mind that a council upgrade is around the corner, so choose wisely!"

How soon is "around the corner"? We need to know it, so that we can guess how many tomatoes we should exchange for having plenty of them when the new update arrives. Around the corner means next week when this challenge ends?

    @Juanlo If I think about last updates, they usually hit us on tuesday or wednesday(between challenges). I guess NG is planning this to same days but last step is out of their hands and they cannot guerantee exact release date.
    Edit: Tomato exchange...no thanks. Last weekend or the one before was good moment to do so, not now.

    Even if it was a two weeks wait (which isn't around the corner in my book) I'd still not trade. Though I think lvl 20 gear will be very useful for a long time still (at least to me) I much prefer to wait and get the lvl 21 stuff.

    If I'm not mistaken, sometimes you could trade tomatoes for gas, altough it was pretty cheap comparing to equipment. But I agree, it does not make sense trade for gear when the update is "around the corner".

    Gas I might go for, if I want more play time. Didn't think of that.
    Supplies for phones might be tempting too.

    I can only explain this disaster with the 5s LVL up and TG exchange with a possible 2.5 Update delay that might have happend.. Maybe it was planned to be already released last Tuesday and Weekend Event was programmed accordingly ?

    At Level 58, I'm only interested in Gas, Phones, or TGs to trade my tomato cans for.

    5 million tomatoes for L20 gear. Who are they kidding????
    1 or 2 million maybe, and that's if the traits were displayed.
    But 5 million??
    Maybe if it was L21.......

    I think phones would be the only trade that would tempt me.

    I just did the little trade. Don't let frustration cloud your reasoning. Came out of the shop, harvested the farms, killed 3 wall walkers, and I'm full again with a gold box to show for it. And I'm going to do it every time. Just stay away from the big trade unless it's worth it to you, personally.
    I'm not about to complain about free stuff.

    @Monsuta At the end of the day algebra drives most business decisions... emotions hurt revenue. So if your "wishes" came true... would that help NG's bottom line in terms of keeping the greybacks in the game? Interesting proposition. I think greybacks are about to become extinct w/ 2.5

    I would assume 17.9m supplies will be enough to upgrade our council, training grounds and maybe even the workshop when the next update drops.

    Doubt it. If the information on OLT's site is correct, I would suspect it'll cost much more than 18 M. Probably closer to 20-23 M, if I had to guess.

    For context:
    - Council level 17 required 9.5 M supplies to upgrade all three (2.5 M Council, 3.5 M Workshop, 3.5 M Training Grounds)
    - Council level 18 required 12.5 M supplies to upgrade all three (4 M Council, 4.25 M Workshop, 4.25 M Training Grounds)
    - Council level 19 required 17 M supplies to upgrade all three (5 M Council, 6 M Workshop, 6 M Training Grounds)

    Council level 20 might require something like 6-7 M Council, 7-8 M Workshop, and 7-8 M Training Grounds.

    I am on your doing a little at a time and before I trade anymore I make sure it's full again. It would be nice if they told us when, but we all know they never will just "SOON". I AM REALLY STARTING TO HATE THAT WORD!

    No chance it'll be this weekend though, right? They don't do updates over the weekend I don't think

    Don't think so... Council level 20 requires player level 59 and people are capped at 58 right now. Workshop & Training Grounds require council level 20, so you have to upgrade a lot (or maybe all) of your other buildings first.

    vudnik, if you're maxed you're only going to get tomatoes from sub level 20 challenges and supplies scavenges and farms so it's going to take longer to rebuild your supply.
    would definitely recommend saving your tg to buy level 21 legendaries after the council upgrade however
