Supply Scavenge Mission rewards

@Teeceezy and NG team:

First off, thanks for the update gift!
I used it yesterday, to the best of my ability to farm tomatoes. Best of my abilities actually refers to being hidden from family for most of the day, in order to run somewhere in between 350-400 supplies scavenge missions. The results were very disappointing, and I am not referring to my hide and seek skills. Those have actually improved after yesterday's "session".
I am of course referring to the mission crate rewards for these missions: somewhere between half and 2/3 of the supply scavenge mission rewards were NOT supplies! And I don't mean that I mostly got phones and gold either... No-No-No! I mostly got XP (on a quadruple xp event...so you can imagine how worthless that was) and useless common equipment.
Hell... I got rewards where actually only 1 out of 9 crate was supplies...

This would be just as if you would want to build a house, you would go to work to earn your salary, and at end of month you would receive 1/3 of salary together with a bag of onions and
a bag of screws...

I am bringing this to your attention as it is against logic (at least against my logic): If we have separate scavenge missions than the specific of the missions should have a much larger chance to drop than the rest. Otherwise, if drops are 1/3 as in most of the missions I ran, than you can just remove two types of missions and leave one generic scavenge mission in which players have 1/3 change of getting... stuff.

Please take a look at this situation, see if there is any bugs hidden somewhere that influence the drops, and in the case that it works "as intended" please revisit your intentions as the current state of scavenge missions are defying their purpose.

Thanks.

    NG thinks less is more. When they finally pull their heads out of that dark, stinky place they will see that less is really friggin' less!! Less satisfaction = less customers = less income. Duh!!!

    Agree. Supplies mission contains only 50% tomatoes. Rest is mostly xp...

    That's why we have 3 to choose. If I need xp I'm going on xp scavenge mission. Supplies - supplies scavenge mission. ect. Previously we had only 1 mixed type.. Has been changed.. right?

    Scavenge Mission is just too boring, the only 2 reasons people play it just because they need supplies to upgrade

    And radio event

    Then how about no more radios and legs for you from those missions. No ? Thats what you wanted.

    It has nothing to do with lack of tomatoes from supply mission.
    Radios and leg items mostly I received from challenge or TG shop.
    Cost of those mission is too high. I prefer to do outpost. Xp and TG in one go.

    It supposed to be high to reduce its impact and make it kinda fair for casuals. Some people actually are angry when they recieve more gas to play with.

    It's an increased probability of the chosen scavenge, not an assurance. Move on.

    I will not point by finger but somebody 'new' here doesn't know how to be a part of the community.

    Well, to add to @Speeds comment, the supplies salvage missions just seemed off this past week as far as giving a higher rate of supplies. When I opened 3 chests at end of mission; there seemed to be a higher % than normal of 1 and 2 star gear dropping. When I opened 6 chests; there were multiple times that I had only gear or gear & xp on all 6 chests and I don't recall that ever happening before. However, the gold, gas, and phone drops did seem more prevalent too.

    With the way NG likes to tweak things, lack of transparency, and their desire to slow our upgrades down with insane camp upgrade costs; its not above the realm of possibility that they messed with the supplies salvage mission drop rate for supplies knowing folks were going to try to take advantage of it with the free gift.

    Yea this bugs me as well. I don't understand why they separated it if the increased chance is so low. Im not saying merge them into a single mission again but rather increase the chance for the type specific reward for the mission.

    Running 5 supply scavenges and getting 8 xp, 3 crap equipment, 2 gold, and 3 supply crates is just wrong. I definitely get less supply crates than other types when I track it during supply runs.
  • zerosouLzerosouL Member Posts: 190
    XP or gear once in a while seems fine to me. Like this i can focus on grinding one single missions instead of jumping from one to another when i run out of xp/tomatoes. Its also less boring like this since you never know what youre gonna get from the crates and this is the only reason i can bare with this endless grind without falling asleep. Man, you people always gonna complain about everything....even the small things like scavenging runs. There are more important things out there and gamebreaking bugs that needs to be addressed first.

    You're the one complaining about the little things! Not wanting to jump from one scavenge type to another is a small thing. Not getting what is advertised is a MUCH bigger problem. Why label it as a supplies, xp or gear mission then? What if you went to the market to buy food (the list contains bread, eggs, fruits, veggies, potato salad and rotisserie chicken) but got only a batch of bread cuz the other things were a wrench and Monopoly money?
    All scavenge missions are boring and the same ones can be found no matter what scavenge you go on. So how does it make you less bored if you get different things from the crates?

    @zerosouL move on. We all know that you already write what you wanted to write in this thread. Ppl here has different POV and you will not convince them that you are right even if you don't ;)

    @Avengers

    Im complaining? Facepalm.... Once in a while you get something else then tomatoes and thats the reason for all this drama? While im doing tomato runs im mostly having tomatoes in reward crates. Missions are biased like this towards either xp tomatoes or gear so its working as advertised.

    @Amiga

    Im not here to convince you and i just have different point of view. Its not just about you and what you want. Theres like 0.00000000001% chance that NG is gonna listen to you so keep trying though.

    I have no dog in this fight, but anytime someone plays the seniority card over a video game, let alone a video game forum, my eyes are incapable of rolling far enough to express my disdain for such a pointless point of pride.

    Well said. Further discussion seems pointless. NG is gonna do whatever they see fit anyway.
