Weekend event - one of the worst so far?

I'm surprised there isn't a thread for this already to be honest.

20% off resources cist for training seems to be rather stingy compared to most events.

Certainly, in my case it adds zero bonus to my game.

    What if you look at it this way:

    It's free! :D

    Or this way:

    My lvl 21 survivors cost some 1,9milion or so XP.
    I just got a crate giving me 5100 xp in the challenge.
    To collect the discount I'm getting for free I would need more than 70 of those crates.
    Pretty good!

    Yea, I was mildly excited when I heard about the event. Then, I remembered it takes 8+ hours ( level 17 max currently). Then, I saw it was only 20%. I am training a survivor at the discounted rate, but, meh.

    My point is its less value than most weeks events.

    In my case it isn't free, because I just went on a XP farming and training binge, and am working hard on equipment now.

    So to use XP to bring another player to level 19 and not add traits to equipment would be counterintuitive, in my case.

    Of course, some will benefit from it, and I understand your perspective, (even before posting), but even with that, compared to other events, I reckon there will be some disappointed people.

    5 sec upgrades is awesome when you know in advance and not sprung on you after you just spent all your xp.

    I'd take that or even Jackpot over this one.

    That one is great. It's usually paired with 10 gold to unlock, so it's a great event to gas boost and grind. Not sure why F'ing Jackpot Weekend replaced this.

    I have brought this up in past threads dealing with Jackpot. THAT was the WORST event ever!!! Even worse than Jackpot, which is obviously saying something!!! :D

    I guess it's ok if you have any peeps waiting to be upgraded.
    Not the best event by a long way, but useful to some people nonetheless.
    In fact, I picked up a perfectly traited Legendary assault at L12 last week, so I can take advantage of it.

    I will take this over jackpot as I will at least get some benefit (as I am working on leveling everyone up-I realize others are not). The last jackpot I got 3 silvers. Just a joke. This event however would have been better for a one-day Tuesday special.

    As @carlos1981 said, this event coupled with 5 second upgrade would be nice. With or without this event I can only upgrade 1 survivor.

    Nope, but it has now moved to the top of my list. :D

    Trap...yes, but I would say they are trying to trap gold. Without any decrease in training times I can train 3 for the price of 2 1/2. Not really much of an event but it does beat a sharp stick in the eye.

    This event is good for someone that already has 3+ of the same survivor level. Not just end gamers but anyone at any level whom already has taken the 3+ triple round star hit. #JustSaying

    Doesn't seem like much, but then I remembered that a couple days ago, NG just gave us 5s upgrades for survivors and equipment (useful to lower level players like me) and some of the other daily events sprinkled in over the past couple weeks.
    I don't think I've played many games that gave so many freebies and events like this one. Maybe because I'm a newbie, I'm happy with what I can get

    5 sec upgrades are useful to all who have XP stored and/or able to get large amounts of XP quickly.

    The main reason for more events is connected to the update. Since I started, major updates have had big bonuses for us. There are weekly events, and we get the occasional 24 hr bonus some weeks.The last one (2.6) had 24 free gas booster and double XP booster to use within 7 days (and that weekend's event was also double XP for kills lol).

    You'll spot the trends over time :wink:

    Depending on your playstyle this event isnt actually that bad in terms of effective xp derived from the event. Ill timed as it may be in light of the lls train folk are running on the distance, you can still take the opportunity to boost your high level crew into current max with a better effort/xp ratio than say the ever so loved/reviled jackpot.

    Loothoarder approves this event, though it would have been more of a crowdpleaser if combined with a 5s surv upgrade timer.

    weekend events are like Neapolitan ice-cream. that delicious oh-so-creamy-goodness of popular flavors jammed into one package to select from. some like to eat just the one flavor, some like 2 flavors, while some like all 3 blended together. weekend events offer the same variety for new players, middle players, veterans, payers, and freebies.

    but does anyone remember when there used to be 4 flavors? Don't remember? well, there used to b a 4th flavor. (no need to Google, just trust me and run with it for entertainment purposes).

    that 4th flavor, not tasted by new players, that was once in Neapolitan ice-cream was rum-radio. shouldn't everyone have a chance to taste rum-radio? why is this flavor a thing of the past that only middle players and veteran players seem to remember? rum-radio was sweet, with a hint of passion fruit/vanilla that was caused taste buds to dance in delight.

    weekend events are like Neapolitan ice-cream. :)
