    It's no picnic - great to see something new and fresh as well. My advice - bring assaults to the party!

    I like the addition of the daily quest bonus star counter on the star totals for each map. Nice attention to detail.

    First sorry for my English
    I just try the new challenge it's a good one just the new reward system is bad
    The new system reward is only good if u are in a guild with a lot of people .
    For small guild with few members this is bad
    The chance the got a 5 ⭐️ Legendary box its really low with a guild with few people
    The old system was Better

    I'm liking it! Thanks! Hopefully we get the Saviors base (won't mention it name) along with a certain weapon (cough..lucille.. cough).

    You can close the doors on the deadly mission.

    I don't want to judge because you might be on a higher level on these challenges.
    But currently ( the first ones ) are not hard, for most of them bring far range shooters such as hunters/assault.
    Really good technique; stay together and move slowly with 'overwatch'.

    How do I start the Hilltop Challenge? I cannot find anywhere in the game to start it. Perhaps someone could release a short guide on YouTube for it?
  • Rogue6Rogue6 Member Posts: 53
    One thing I don't like, if you decide to Farm EXP will have fun.
  • TeeceezyTeeceezy Staff Posts: 3,577
    @Gavna you can go to your player hub (the envelope looking icon on the right of your screen) and press the "Go to Challenge" button
  • GavnaGavna Member Posts: 3
    @Teeceezy I have included a link to what I see when I click on the envelope. No "Go To Challenge" button is visible. Could it be some sort of glitch?

    This challenge is pretty brutal.
    *NG*Hey guys, know you need lots of trade goods to upgrade your bases to a reasonable level to actually be defendable...but we are gonna throw our most difficult challenge ever at you and make them extra hard to obtain.

    Thanks NG. Thanks. Quick Fuel during the week while I am at work all day, and pita challenge... Oh well at least it stays interesting.

    What is the strategy for handling that? Without assaults and warriors.
  • atrainofficialatrainofficial Member Posts: 255
    shooter/shooter/hunter would be my next suggestion. or a variation including those two types.
  • zosonzoson Member Posts: 2,216
    How did you even end up in that situation @Amiga??? Mine has never looked like that!
  • PapaSmurfPapaSmurf Member Posts: 92
    Developers: I think this challenge is well done. Great job! The number of zombies is a little overkill; but well done.

    Anything that deals area damage is going to be critical for these challenges. I don't think scouts or bruisers will be very useful (but I haven't used bruisers in forever).
    I like Zombies!
  • PapaSmurfPapaSmurf Member Posts: 92
    @Amiga Did you let all those zombies out on purpose? ;)
    I like Zombies!

    Amigas pic is what happens when you try to farm that level, after like 20 or so nexts the game starts releasing fat walkers every turn, there's so many walkers that you can't even try to turn tail and end the level. I had to flee with level 3 walkers, and I had a team with level 16 legendaries. The fatties were stunning me and chipping off my health.

    Bland and boring I'm finding the hilltop, they missed a trick by not doing a few interior levels of the house.

    Also the last two new challenges were the designers paid per walker placed as its getting fricking stupid.

    i like it, but its hard as hell, nearly impossible to not get hit.
    @Amiga on that map you need to get a warrior with pacman weapon inside the gate asap, it can kill every wave that comes out.

    like this, warrior is the W
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    I use assault witch wide attack. Do the job :)

    That sounds odd @Gavna. I'll pass the message on. You can also find the challenge in your World Map.
