    Anyways, this looks awesome. I'm looking forward to the bonus stars, gas savings, and reduced grind!

    @Monsuta Believe me I was puzzled as well. I also didn't have as much time to prepare for this so I hope I didn't say anything that wasn't true.

    Probably making a video!

    So the challenge will become less time consuming, without losing stars?

    Will it get to point when using round pass that the starting rsl will b too difficult to get 3 stars or near impassable?

    @Carly No matter what, every week, you only skip from your normal starting round....not the last challenge starting round.

    The real 'beauty' of this solution seems to be that it is automatic, we don't have to do a thing, it just happens.
    If you play a lot, you skip a lot after a few challenges. If you take a break you will have to grind a bit again after your return to build up, but you wont lose anything in terms of rewards or starz.

    @Fearofabotplanet does that just about sum it up?

    Does this in any way fix the star loss situation? I'm not seeing how or if it does!!

    I'm not sure I understood this. You seriously need a new content creator. Someone who has no heavy accent and who makes bigger and therefore clearer video images. I am not a native English speaker so difficulty in understanding what you are trying to communicate is worsen by that guy's accent.

    Terminates mentioned about passes earned from last challenge which affects starting level of next challenge. Can you elaborate on this? Or maybe I'll just wait how this goes live.

    @Mystique It's not a direct resolution to address the issue which you're talking about, though it will have an impact on stars. @Shteevie's comments in a different thread address this point, and I'm sure he'll also comment here on how this change will impact the challenge star system.

    Sounds intriguing, though I didn't mind the grind too much. Only problem I see is that skipping ahead, say 5 rounds, eliminates quite a lot of post mission crates, which means you lose out on supplies, XP, and the almighty chance at radios. Idea isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I do kind of wish it was an optional feature. As in click on the round pass and it says "would you like to skip this round?" And you hit yes or no. *In this scenario, you'd have to cap the round pass usage to your survivor level or less, so that people wouldn't try to be round-passing level 30.1, etc*

    Thank you @Shteevie I must have missed the other thread explanation!!

    Not entirely thrilled this update didn't directly fix the issue.. but I'll stay hopeful that the other new changes will have some sort of impact.. accidentally unlocking the Governor last week proved to be extremely disappointing/discouraging in regards my challenge stars! :(

    On the surface, this seems like pure @$&;#/! GENIUS.

    Bravo. I can't wait to see it in action. (Without hidden nerfs I hope :wink: )
