Radio Event has been nerfed

Just when you thought the nerfs couldn’t get worse, they ruin the best event of them all.

Crates now only have an increased chance of radios, not more radios. I’d gladly give NG $$ when value presents itself. That hasn’t happened in a LOOONG time. While they worry about breaking the economy within the game with nice events, the economy that I’m giving to the game no longer exists.

    NG to us:
    Grind for the challenge
    Grind for the Distance
    Now grind for the "chance" of more radios

    I'm sensing a pattern but I just can't put my finger on it :#

    Footnote: they do this event on Mother's Day weekend...do they have mothers in Finland?? Now I'm curious...

    What grind? they fixed it nah am joking we all grinding for less rounds smh

    O-oh.

    If it's too much text below, read only this because it kind summarizes the whole thing:
    "In order to have this event more often, we can't run it exactly as it was before. We've seen the results and they weren't the best :/. So for now, we'll check how things will go with this one and if things go well, we can certainly run it more than twice a year (which was the frequency of the previous Radio Events)."

    And now, the complete version:

    If they're not doing the increased amount of radios per crate, I sure hope (to be clear, that word is "hope," not "expect") that the chance percentage for finding radios is increased higher than in the past with this event, to at least lessen the blow of not getting more per crate. Now that we can see percentages, I am looking forward to seeing what the "increased" percentage is compared to what the "normal" percentage is.

    The chances were doubled in all crates (Normal/Silver/Gold) and those are the same numbers from the previous events. Between Increased and Double, they would sound the same. And a "reasonable increase" is not the best way to sell an event, haha. But the drop tables will be there to clear any doubt!

    ---

    As you (not you Dbones, but the community) know, we don't run this event frequently because Radios are one of our most valuable resources and therefore game-economy-breaking. I know I've been answering this very same answer a lot, but in my defense, this question is also asked a lot, haha.

    A couple of radios could seem harmless if you are looking at what you are collecting alone, but when you take into account that every active player is getting those "couple more", it looks terrifying as hell. :cold_sweat:

    Hey @Kaz - just throwing it out there. Some people have suggested supplies for radios, and a radio-active themed weekend seems like a great opportunity to do that. I'm sure a lot of the folks who are unhappy about the reduction in mission radios would feel a lot better if they were able to trade their supplies for radios.

    The people who are maxed out in supplies are probably those who are the most active or spend the most on the game, so the trade would be in line with the whole "rewarding people for being active" theme.

    It's a valid point for sure and I've suggested it to the team already (not only Radios particularly, but other resources for supplies). However, it's also a valid point that it greats diminish the value of Radios since you wouldn't be using those tomatoes on anything else.

    But wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We get a chance to BUY more radios!!! The compassion NG is showing us by ALLOWING us to buy more radios is more than my heart can take!!

    If you are looking for Radios and are willing to spend, those deals are indeed better. But if you don't want to spend a penny, there are the free Radios you can get by playing.

    ---

    But if the majority would rather have it the event with the same settings, but with less frequency, that's one way to do it as well, but I believe that having these settings with more frequency would be better for everyone. What do you guys think?

    @Kaz your logic makes total sense if you plan on running this updated radio event at least 4 times a year. If it ends up being 2 (like before) or even 3, you guys have effectively lowered the radios we can get from these events.

    That's the plan after we see how this one goes. (:
