Challenge rewards, where's the beef?

masmith93masmith93 Member Posts: 3,522
I'm wondering if anyone has seen a difference in the rewards for this mission? Between personal, guild and gold boxes after missions, 99% have been rare and I've received the same items several times.

On a side note, why does one and two star equipment even exist past survivor level 10? I can't believe anyone above level 7? 8? uses that eq, so what's the point? Just give XP instead since it's all scrap anyway.

    My guild mates are getting high level Legendary weapons and I'm still getting Level 10-13 rare/epic crap. I have a feeling the level of reward is determined by your overall Level. I'm level 36 but use only Level 15+ survivors. I think rewards should be based on your survivor levels, not player level. I have NEVER received a USABLE weapon/armor reward from challenges. EVER. What use is that?

    Most gears in Diablo II are also rubbish. Otherwise who cares MF% ?

    I agree I do not get usable weapons for the level of my players what good is an item 4 slots below your players. Not even epic or legendary items either

    @Longinus MF%? I'm not familiar.

    @basiamd I would be ok with epic but I'm getting really tired of constantly receiving rare weapons/armor in the gold chests.

    Scrapped every single one. 215 stars Guilds up there pretty good. Waste of time

    I've gotten a few awesome rewards. A VERY nice epic sword, a nice legendary sword, a high level assault rifle, and some legendary armor.

  • I'm still getting green rares mostly. High level greens but green none the less. It's starting to look like Saint Patrick's Day threw-up in my workshop and can't help but to long for some of that gold at the end of the rainbow at this point :p

    all i get is lvl 10-13 legendaries or lvl 16-18 rares... RNG hates me bigtime.

    @DarkFae atleast you got high level survivors even if its only rare.. most of my epic & legendary survivors cap at level 13. My legendary scout cap at level 12.. i would trade you these survivors for your rare high level survivors..

    They will show up in your tent my friend. Keep pulling from the RT. My secret is I don't wait for events. When I get 15 phones I make a call and when NG is not offering bungles with phones in the packs the game gives out about 13-15 phones a day. Also I think @Amiga was on to something when she said that having higher max level survivors opens the door to getting higher level gear (because before the change I rescued 2 different max 18 uncommons) so even if you pull a higher level common or uncommon try keeping it around for a bit and training it once or twice cause as long as you don't send it on deadlies when you retire it you will get the Xp back and it could open some doors for you :)

    I'm to the lvl 13 recommended in the challenge now so this morning I expected some silver and gold chests after getting my ass kicked and one star. Instead I had one bronze chest from one mission and no chests in two other missions. WTFF?


    Edit: check out my awesome rewards for hitting 140 stars

    Picture says it all. Great! Same shit here. 2280 guild stars lvl 11 rare rifle and under 10000 XP
  • Yeah, I think its bull that we're forced to push the "Great" button, when clearly stuff isn't great. There should be a give me better stuff button

  • masmith93masmith93 Member Posts: 3,522
    @bgbelden Oh I like that idea. One GREAT! Button if we like the item or a BULLSHIT! Button if it's rare crap.

    Lvl 13 rare hammer or so was my best at 200+ stars....

    We hear you. Actually, we heard you a while back. The update now being prepared includes a complete overhaul to the way the rewards (challenges, daily quests, Outposts) work. Look for details in the next release's release notes.

    There's no need to press the 'Great' button for crap gear, just click on the pic and scrap it.

    Sorted! :)

    Thanks @OldGoth, appreciate the the info. I was under the impression from @Teeceezy's post from Feb. 16 that the reward tier changes came out in the most recent release.

    @OldGoth Thanks for not saying "we are listening!" :)

  • steste Member Posts: 108
    Cool. I hope the change to the reward system makes it possible to not have to rely on doing so many explore missions if you want to keep your Base up to date. I'd much rather be pushing in the weekly challange or raiding bases.
    It's just not possible to keep up unless you do tons of tomato missions as it is right now
  • OldGothOldGoth Member Posts: 297
    The reason for the confusion about challenge reward changes coming "in the next release" is because we had to make an unplanned-for patch (1.6.4) before the next planned-for release (1.7). Sorry about that!
  • zosonzoson Member Posts: 2,216
    @OldGoth to avoid this type of confusion, we use "major release/minor release" nomenclatures when announcing features to customers.

    We also use a tick/tock cadence where every odd release is a bugfix release and every even release is a new feature release.

    I've got 4 level 13 bruiser vests today, 2 rare, 1 epic, 1 legendary. Need some variety.
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    I'm receiving in 90% rare /green stuff. Useless...

    It's becoming exceedingly difficult to find the beef in these rewards. I should be farming deadlies but don't want to let my guild down... Someone spotted a container car full of beef being packed into the next update. Sure do hope it's grade A!!
  • zeeblackzeeblack Member Posts: 1,135
    I only play the weekly challenges to contribute to the group score. Otherwise I just scrap the rewards which NG forcefully makes us to say great

    I am the one and only Zee Black, climbed all the way to Level 75, part of SG Woot, the 3 million star guild

  • AhexAhex Member Posts: 78
    I don't mind if rewards on lower star levels are crap, but I wish they improve when more stars are collected. Also I would like them to be closer the level I earned those stars. If I need to kill average lvl 15 zombie and my crew is lvl 14, then I expect to get lvl 15 rare, lvl 14 epic and lvl 13 legendary stuff. not level 12 rare, lvl 11 epic or lvl 10 legendary or worse. I can get better rewards just doing one 6 gas deadly mission .
  • Just to say it out load again:

    Reward quality is a very big problem. Not a small one. Not something players dont care about.

    I only have lvl 16 survivors and can work with stuff level 15 which can be improved to 18. One cant expect to get 3 to 5 star level 15 all the time, but I got ONE in about 30 occasions. I think one or two lvl 14.

    There is absolutely no reason for playing the challenge missions but for the stars you get that put you up in the - broken! - leaderboard. My guild is very unhappy with this and so am I. There must be a change soon, because this really kills the joy of playing.
