THE 40 CALL

The 40 Call

"That's right everyone. The 40 call is back and this time it's meant to be."

I thought I'd give it a try and it's quite cool & different than I expected. Not only do you get the option to spin twice again, you can lock any result and just re-spin the ones you don't want.

    Yes, I should have locked the Brusier tokens on that first spin I know. :s

    Wasn't sure how it all worked so hopefully my video will help others not make simular mistakes.

    Did you update to 2.9.0, or a previous optional update?

    I'm not fully sold on the 40 call... hear me out: when you make three separate 15 calls, you can pick 3 survivors out of 9. When you make the 40 call, each survivor you "lock" reduces the number of options you get in rolls 2 and 3. Re-rolling with limited options could be worse than three completely independent roll because under normal circumstances, you have a significantly higher chance of rares than epics, legs, or heroes.

    The most notable advantage to the 40 call over three 15 calls is the fact that you save 5 radios, but I'm still not sure that makes the rest of the call actually a good deal. It'd be interesting to do some expected value calculations to see if the 40 call is actually a good deal.

    Good point @JayZ

    Maybe we could use @DLich for some number crunching.

    I wouldn't mind betting he's already onto it. ;)

    Looks like you're still on 2.8.1.4. Head to the Updates tab in your App Store, pull down to refresh the list and then find NML. :) @Drunken

    @Teeceezy

    It says updated and does not show another update for game in app store

    Notice is says open not update if there was a newer update version it would say update

    Question. Once you lock it and re-spin can you "unlock it again"?

    That call would be avilible in the future with shooter or assault variant, not hunter?

    I'd have to be so unlucky that I would have gotten 3 rare first spin, chosen not to keep any, 3 rare second spin, chosen not to keep any, 3 rare third spin (or just have to accept whatever I am given on the final 3rd spin.)

    That's exactly what happened to me on my first try, lol.

    EDITED to add: final result was two lots of 32 hunter tokens and one 32 Maggie tokens. I was hoping for Sasha or Dwight.

    @Teeceezy this will rotate daily or we are stuck with Hunters for 7 days?

    Awesome new feature on Radio Calls btw.
