    @Kaz If it was AT LEAST 4 times a year in this format, possibly more and if this even could be run with let's say jackpot at the same time or 1 min gas then I'd say that's done deal for me and I'd be happy.

    It is interesting to know what @Kaz means specifically by these statements: "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" and "That's the plan after we see how this one goes." What objective results does NG want to see from this event in order to classify it as a success?

    Care to clue us on what you mean by that Kaz?

    "wasn't the best" means that people stopped buying radio bundles for a little while afterwards... Giving double radio's (I was able to earn 700 last time on unlimited gas all weekend) affected their sales.. It was the best for the players but not the best for NG... hence why they don't run it often and decided to change how it operates when running it this time.

    translation:We think we can make more money by selling our "value bundles"lol instead of the cheaper gaz boosters.

    I'm on board with this line of thought. It's not as ideal as keeping the event the way it's always been, but it also wouldn't be nearly as bad as running the event as frequently (or rather, infrequently) as it is now with the nerfed numbers. If you half the amount of radios we get in crates during the event, but double the frequency of the event, I would think it's more or less a wash over time. If any of you math wizards care to chime in and prove one way or the other which way works better, I'd love to hear it, because I'm too damn lazy to try to sit here and figure that shit out :p

    Great News saved 5.00 this weekend.

    The more nerfs I see the less I spend, was going to buy gas and double xp for the weekend no point in it now,

    I know I might see greater chance of getting radios but ya know what this just leaves a bad taste in my mouth nerf away.

    @Kaz man I just want to say, I'll take this event several times a year happily. And I know I'm not alone.

    Angry people speak the loudest and are therefore heard most often.

    I like radios as much as the next guy.

    I don't have infinite resources, so I don't buy tons of bundles and such, here and there, some boosters sure.

    If I got time to play lots, I'll boost and play lots, regardless of the Weekend Event in play.

    This weekend is mother's day weekend so I really probably shouldn't play a ton anyway, but if I do, the extra radios will be very appreciated sir.

    Thank you, and I would like to extend my gratitude to the whole team for continuing to put time and energy into a game I love, extending its longevity more than any other hand I've ever played... Ever. Keep it up.

    All due respect to @OneLessTitan and others here.

    Question(s) for @BiggyGuyinTWD -
    1. Did you ever buy gas boosters during the previous Radio Events?
    2. Ignoring the Mother's Day factor, will you/would you buy a gas booster during this version of the event?

    The larger point I am trying to get at (which probably got lost in the wall of text) is the fact that I've actually been offering suggestions directly to NG to happily get more $$ from people. I'm sure they will make bank this event since most players are ignorant (that's not an insult for anyone who is ignorant of what ignorant means). But I don't like preying/capitalizing on ignorance. Of course this nerfed event is still better than basically any other event, but it's not one that's going to inspire the majority of informed people to happily spend their $$, knowing they have to spend twice the $$ and time to get less than what they used to (assuming they drop the bronze radio rate down to 10% from 15%..if it's 15%, then it's the same expected outcome for twice the time/$$).

    I usually buy a booster almost every week so I can max out to my ability in the challenge, I usually buy 2 for the radio event but with this nerf (like the interupt nerf) I'll no longer buy bundles again ( I spent about $500 since I decided to buy bundles again a couple months ago).
    Depending how this event goes it may also mean no more full gas

    Sounds like it's time to hoard radios again. The more scarce they get, the less willing I am to spend my stash. I will only spend for a truly great event.

    @OneLessTitan sure plenty of times I bought boosters during radio events and many others.

    (Not the last component event, didn't boost all weekend mostly because it didn't increase chances of finding gold components and those are the only ones I need... Sitting on 50 blue frags right now)

    Wow, so much anger. I wish I could say I'm surprised, but sadly I'm not. We've requested a radio event forever then we finally get one, and its not good enough? C'mon. It's not as good as the last radio event? Boo-hoo. You can't progress at all without spending $$$... oh wait, yes you can! Not fast enough for you? Too bad, that's on you, not NG.

    IF you still enjoy the game, be grateful it's still supported and sounds like will be updated for quite awhile at least. If you can't pay money, continue to play and have fun! If you can, great, have fun also! If you can't afford to spend money or spending takes the fun out of the game and there's an NG henchman holding a gun to your head right... GET OUT NOW! Its probably not for you anymore anyway, but have no fear, NML will survive without you.

    Yes, I also don't like some of the changes that's happened recently, but so what, life isn't fair, get over it. The whining/bitching/moaning is getting quite tiresome.

    I have no problem with people voicing their opinions, I fully support it and like I said, actually agree with some of the displeasures stated. What I don't agree with is how some go WAY over the top and just say the same thing over and over and over again. To me, that's when it changes from valid criticism to whinning.

    And in all honest and not be snarky, how do people feel attacked by devs? Maybe it was before I joined, but to me all the 'attacking' seems to come from our side, not theirs.
