Starting level of challenge will raise with the first lvl 21 survivor/hero?

Like the title already mentions I wonder if the starting level of challenges will be higher after training the first survivor/hero to level 21? Or does it need more than one to change? @Teeceezy @Shteevie ?

    @Capleton i am not 100% sure but this is the formula they use

    ((x / 3 • .70) + 1 = your base RSL when the challenge starts

    x is a variable (survivors) adding ur highest level of yourv3 survivors and divide by 3 and multiply it by .7 and after that add plus 1 to get your final results.

    Can't make work your formula Amazayn =D

    I would simply say, your base RSL is your max survivor level minus 5 ?

    Amazayn remembers the formula from the discussion threads from before 2.4, which are mostly right. In 2.5, the .70 was slightly adjusted, but if you had 3 level 20 survivors in 2.4 with a starting difficulty of 14, then 3 level 21 survivors in 2.5 should result in a starting difficulty of 15.

    @Riggs I started on level 15 as well and I have only level 20 survivors. @Teeceezy @Shteevie can one of you confirm this question so we know where we should be at and what level we should be starting or what level we will start once we get level 21 survivors.

    @Riggs
    Your change in experience is what we intended and described in the patch notes for 2.5. Rarity or pink stars have no effect on starting difficulty.

    @srmcn1031
    As stated above, if you have level 20 or 21 survivors, you will start at difficulty 15.

    Edit: players with level 21 survivors are getting starts of difficulty 21. Since the challenge has already started, this is not something we can change for this challenge. It was not intended in the development of 2.5, but we will keep an eye on players' ability to make progress in case an adjustment is needed.

    @Shteevie What you're saying was not true for my game this past week. I have lvl 21 survivors and starting RSL/difficulty was "16" (not 15). Is that being recalibrated?
  • mimicamimica Member Posts: 349
    @Shteevie I have teammates who also started at rsl 16

    You what you are saying is.. By me leveling up to 21 I'll more than like get less stars which will result in less rewards.. Right?

    20 =14
    21 =16

    So what's the verdict here?

    In 2.5 I have multiple Lvl 20 survivors but no Lvl 21's yet.

    If I have only one Lvl 21 survivor will it jump to RSL 16 start?

    From my understanding the formula was tweaked so I'm going to assume once I have 3 then it'll jump to 16 stsrt the challenge after I attain the 3rd Lvl 21 survivor.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    I started today's challenge at RSL 15 and I have ten survivors at level 21.
  • murph0228murph0228 Member Posts: 41
    I started at 16..
    Youd think with all the money you make from the game you'd hire a programmer that's not incompetent..

    Just sayin

    @DLich I had 2 Level 21 Assaults ready, another bruiser was in training for level 21. My level is Level 59. I started at Level 15.

    @Shteevie @Teeceezy
    That sounds a little unfair. Some people with Level 21 survivors starts at RSL 15 and others starts at RSL 16.
    If both reach the same final difficulty, the ones with starting point RSL 15 reach 107 stars more.
    I think here you don't need a monitoring, this MUST be fixed.
    Thanks :)
  • CapletonCapleton Member Posts: 441
    Same situation as @JackBauer for me. Started the challenge with two lvl 21s and at rec lvl 15.

    Started the discussion to get some answers...all I got is more questions and doubt about the game mechanics.

    I think anyone that started at RSL 16 need to voice their opinion here. There is all this talk of "FAIR PLAY" but when you have players with level 21 survivors starting at different RSL's then that is not fair and should be fixed. I am no where near getting anyone to level 21 but not looking forward to the crap shoot on which RSL do I start at.

    @Shteevie

    Is it so difficult to answer a simple but decisive question? ;)

    Under which conditions (fighter level and number of fighters) start with RSL 15 and when with RSL 16?
  • ShteevieShteevie Staff Posts: 1,335
    @Loewe1968
    In this case, yes; it is difficult to give a simple answer to that question. We need to identify why it didn't work as intended, take in the full list of responses from players who do and don't like the way it worked this week, plan a solution for next week and the future, and implement that change.

    Since the Challenges run all weekend, we want to give people more time to contact us with their thoughts.

    In general, as with the entire system, a player with higher-level survivors will start at a higher difficulty. The specifics are not yet set going forward, and will be partially based on the way players played this week and the feedback that they give.

    More info before the next Challenge begins. If you would prefer to start at a lower difficulty, focus for now on finding good gear for when you do decide to train up to 21.

    Well, if they leave it up to player performance to decide, the players are in complete control of 'the players' ability to make progress.'

    Just sayin'.

    In retrospect I wished I never upgraded. Also started at RSL 16 & lost 107 stars. Only game I know you are penalised for upgrading

    My brain is not smart... can someone please explain how we arrive at 107 for starting at lvl 16 vs 15? Does it also impact when rounds repeat or something?

    33stars for RSL 15
    And two times 37 stars for the RSL 19, that is only one round, if you start from 16.

    Perfect - so rounds don't repeat until you hit RSL 20 if you begin at RSL 16. That makes sense - thanks @David_H79!
