    Looking in there, I’d say since so many players don’t even use the forums, a % of the are having decent luck. A good number have been shared in our guild chat.

    On it's own, yes 100%. So I'm glad the past few times it's been a double weekend event along side something else. Since the release of badges it's gotten a lot better since statistically at least 1/9 crates should contain epic/legendary badge stuff

    By itself it’s bad but I still think reduced healing time is worse. 1 minute bruise into 30 second bruise. Not very handy lol

    Each to their own but if you push far into the challenge then eventually each map becomes 2 hours of hospital time a go so I'm a big fan of that event. I don't have deep enough pockets so I have to either find some other way to spend my time or play different game modes with my fringe survivors :lol:

    From a player progression standpoint, one of the worst. From NG profit standpoint, the best.

    It has several things going for it from NG standpoint.

    1. You have to buy unlimited gas to get the most out of it.
    2. You have to spend gold and watch videos to get the most out of it.
    3. Most importantly, it is the most addictive of all the events. By using the mechanism of intermittent rewards, you get a cycle of feast and famine. This is far more addictive than constant reward and NG knows this.

    My favorite events from most to least

    1. One minute gas
    2. Five minute gas
    3. 2xSupplies
    4. Double XP
    5. Free badge switching
    6. Scrapping XP
    7. Everything else is pretty much equally worthless

    Have only seen silver twice no gold. But when paired with another event no big deal.

    YES YES YES No Gold ever, pitiful event, how bout flipping the switch for to get some Gold instead of 000000000
  • JackBauerJackBauer Member Posts: 1,550
    No
    In combination with some other event eg double tomatoes or increased radios or double xp it isn’t as bad then.

    I still have not got a single gold Jackpot, a few silver but I usually do much better. Just for the simple fact that rare gear is removed from gold crates I have to vote 'no' & just hope for better luck next time we have the event.

    yes it would be great to have both jackpot and 1 min gas full weekend but we know its not possible of course :smiley:

    Cant answer this as it depends the weekend I got 10 gold I loved it. This weekend I loved it because it was with double supplies even tho I got 1 gold. So really and honestly it just all depends on the week.

    I have no doubt that all those that voted "no" spend a considerable amount of real money on the game.
    And those that voted "yes" do not.

    I will say this:

    I have with the videos opened 6/9 on a few Silver Jackpots.
    I have NEVER used gold to open all 9
    I have NEVER..... not ONCE.... received a Gold Jackpot.
    I assume I WILL never receive any Gold Jackpots because I'm not willing to waste my precious gold on Silver Jackpots first.
    I would of course consider spending gold on Gold Jackpots but
    I will NEVER spend gold on Silver Jackpots.

    It would be nice if the Gold Spenders boycotted this event so that NG is forced to either abandon the Jackpot event altogether or increase the chance of receiving Gold Jackpots without first spending on Silver, thereby making it more rewarding for the ENTIRE community.

    But that's just crazy talk from an ol hawk

    @Silverhawk I also don’t spend gold for silver crates, but I did get 3 gold jackpots over the weekend.
  • MadPuppyMadPuppy Member Posts: 2,831
    No
    I spent lots of gold on silver jackpots, and got no gold jackpots at all. And that's while on booster too. :)

    I didn't spend any real money on the event, just saying myself is all.
