When you have 14 radios, why does it take so much time to get the last one for a 15 radio call?

    2 Days is a long time to not get a radio, but there's no in game difference regarding drop rates when you have more or less phones. I think it's a the night before Christmas type of feeling.

    I've noticed that, but with the phone drop nerf it's a nightmare to get phones in the first place.

    Phones are slowly becoming the new unicorns!

    It is working as intended for you to buy phone bundles & spend $$$$

    I had 14 radios on Saturday. I didn't see one drop until after the challenge started on Wednesday.

    I've had droughts like that too, but have been more lucky recently. Phones in the TG shop and on the last two wall clearances, netted 5 phones. Never done that before ( and probably never will again!) So maybe there's hope that luck or RNG goes around, comes around and your drop rates will also get better. Fingers crossed...it would be nice if the drop rates were more consistent, for sure.

    Got 2 phones on next wall clearance. For a small fee, I will come and say a phone-generating charm around your camp, lol. Until my luck wears off, and I'll be cussing like everyone else!

    I honestly believe there is a "happy hour" each day where phones drop more often for you. Normally starts if I get a phone outside then just do as many scavanges as possible. Normally get 4 or 5 phones in a row, then nothing again for a day or so!

    Instead of a rain-dance we should do phone-dances in our camps.

    This is known as the @Ovidmikel rule because he was the first (-ish) one on the forum to document (anecdotally) that radios come in streaks.

    It might just be a psycological fluke that your brain tends to register cerain patterns and chooses to ignore others. But many players subscribe to this theory.

    NG doesn't discuss drop rates (except for when they do anyway like in @Fearofabotplanet 's post higher up in this thread) but they have previously hinted that radio drop rates are 'flat' and evenly spread so that it's all RNG. Personally, I'm still undecided on this one.
    I'm lost.

    Check out the DMZ guild. We're recruiting. Here.

    I honestly don't have this problem.

    1) Guild reaches a certain star count and there are 5 or 10 radios
    2) Monday afternoon (UK) - New story mission gets me 15 radios (it should be 30 tho :angry: )

    I believe I'm currently on 103 radios and I'm sure others have been saving up longer so that isn't a boast.

    Just stay over 15 radios and thus never becomes an issue :lol:
