    As in most games there's a element of luck involved. Rarely does any game have 100% guarantees. The element of luck is what keeps you trying, if you're guaranteed a result every time it would become boring faster. Just like in poker, you can have a pair of aces, best hand to have but it never guarantees a win. :wink:

    This is near to similar...

    Every element of this game contains luck so why would the badge system be any different?

    That is not the point, that is only your point. I'm talking about the range of things
  • jimmorrison369jimmorrison369 Member Posts: 2,065
    For instance.
    A legendary gear crate guarantees a legendary weapon, but it can still be a auto-scrap due to the traits on it.

    If a legendary gear crate would give a epic weapon with bad traits. That would be horrible ...

    I'd love to be guaranteed the best weapon/ survivor/ badge with best traits every time but it's just simply not how the game works. It's good to hear everyone opinion and everyone should respect the opinion of others.
    Goodluck!

    The 'unequip fee' of 15 gold when you transfer a badge from one survivor to another is too much. If you don't like it, BUMP. Together, let's make the app developers know.

    I don't think it's too expensive. You can get atleast 10 gold a day from one quest. You just need to make your choice where to place badge carefully.
    Goodluck!

    @zbot

    I posted under New Discussion. Did you place that new thread here?
  • NeoTheOneNeoTheOne Member Posts: 83
    By experience I need to unequip a lot because I have few good badges so when it all adds up it actually is expensive. After playing The Distance, come back here @TJS

    @zbot
    Am I allowed to post it again as a new discussion?

    I don't disagree it will add up fast if you're moving badges around constantly. I guess it's good we even have that option.
    All the more reason to choose carefully.

    You used all Legendary Fragment and Components but got an Epic badge or used all Rare materials but got Uncommon? that's Retrogressive Yield (RY). If you are against RY, BUMP. Together, let's make the app developers know.

    In many games spending real cash gives you a clear advantage over others. Sure spending cash here gives you some advantages but I think they've created a good game that anyone can play and do well without spending cash.
    Even if you do throw lots of cash in you're still not guaranteed something better than someone who doesn't spend.
    I think it's good there's some balance between throwing cash and playing well.

    @Shteevie @Fearofabotplanet Is getting far more components than fragments intentional or just bad RNG for some of us? I made 12 badges during weekend event(+2 as update gift), low rarity of course(stil no epic or better badge) and now Im "stuck" with over 50 components and only one fragment(which I keep for higher rarity components). I would love to use my tomatoes to craft even 1/2 star badges, just to give my survs small bump, but with amount of fragments, I cannot. Or, is The Distance going to drop significantly more fragments, so I(we) will be able to use that surplus of components? I like badges addition to game, but Im somewhat dissatisfied with drop ratio of fragments/components.

    Sure you get weapons with guaranteed and better traits if you buy the bundles.

    I've been playing this game since almost the beginning and, I don't know of someone who has done well without spending cash. For example, it has been proven that one can never go high in challenges without gas booster and some gold. In my guild, those who don't buy unlimited gas always end up in bottom 5. That's not doing well. I don't know where @TJS gets the fuel or inspiration for discussing balance now when more than ever balance has been greatly diminished.

    Perhaps it boils down to comunication styles. To me, saying "This should be fixed/improved," is different than saying "This is BS" along with a comment about farming all weekend only to get ... exactly what the game said you would get. To me, one is a respectful ask for a change, and another is just standard forum complaining about anything NG does.
