What Level Are You? Vote Yes Or No To Two Challenges A Week

PerdtinPerdtin Member Posts: 783
The game changes in terms of costs and upgrading survivors, weapons, armor and buildings. The working theory is that due to the changes in how upgrades occur, the stress of having two challenges a week reduces after a certain point due to the ability to max out the challenge stars that are relatively easy to obtain quickly. Please select your level and yes/no. Bonus points for answering when you practically stop a challenge. Under the new system, I stop at 181 basically

    I still find there's time during and after challenges to farm and upgrade.. grinding the same deadlies for days straight isn't much fun for me , challenges add some variety and kinship with a great guild. I could maybe see how endgamers would need more time to save up because of the insane price increases , but where I'm at , 2 challenges are working great

    Lvl 35 I am very happy with 2 challenges a week. At present I'm kind of stuck. I can't advance any further in the missions until I upgrade more of my survivors. If I were to just collect experience from the tents it would take a long time. When there was only one challenge a week after a few days I would get to the point where I couldn't get any more stars.With the current 2 per week every few days I can actually do something.

    @Perdtin i firstly was like @BarcodeJ not another poll asking the same thing, however when voted on the last similar poll, it didn't really tell us much other than those who have an issue tend more to vote than those that do not.
    So yes this is a more informative poll. The more stars = more time to complete, more gas etc. Usually the stronger and higher levels (emphasis on usually)
    Lower levels will top out sooner.
    One thing though even though I'm not a high lvl player yet, but I'm looking forward to a challenge as I achieve higher star score on the challenges as well as improving my camp and outpost.
    I do not endorse comparing games, however it's refreshing to have an rpg that has many dimensions to keep you occupied.

    I like 2 challenges per week because it doesn't tie me down to only weekends for challenges. Limiting the extra challenges to only the same set days per week was really difficult for my schedule. This way I have a lot more oportunity to fit chaĺenges into my game time, even when travelling.

    Actually I'm level 29. I like 2 challenges because I stop at about 100. Gives more opportunity to contribute.
  • RahleRahle Member Posts: 29
    As mentioned for the lower levels the two challenges are great for us. We manage to get a ton of work in after the fun of the challenges subsides. If the real trouble for the higher levels is that the gas consumption makes it harder, shouldn't we just have a limit on what the gas costs at a certain point. Most of my gas costs are 4 tanks right now, with 14 possible in my car is limiting to my game time. If it capped at one point would give everyone a chance to enjoy the challenges and the regular playtime to move forward in the game.

    Used to hit 210 no problem, but now, no chance of getting 240 with increased difficulty + shorter duration, so I would stop anytime after 180. Honestly though, I feel the need to grind XP as well to feed the ravenous upgrade beasts, so 140 stars is probably what I'm shooting for these days.

    Can I have my bonus points now? :)

    Bout to flip to Lvl 43 but I like the 2 challenges if you can knock out your max fast still gives you time to farm etc

    So here's my experience - I would top out on the one per week challenge and then have nothing to do. IMO 2 per week gives you more opportunity for both personal and guild awards - and if you top out in 3 days you get a fresh one.

    Apparently, we need at least 50. People seem to think that the more duplicate threads that are generated, the more likely the devs are to pay attention. The reality is the opposite. A single thread addressing an issue puts all the opinions in one place and makes it easier for the devs to follow.

    Also, the poll completely leaves out the people under level 30. There is a significant portion of the player base that is not represented or are misrepresenting by choosing the 30-34 option. If you are trying to find a correlation between level and preference, then your sample is skewed by not having all levels adequately represented.

    Yes I realized the breakdown of rankings was off after I posted. Usually the polls are complaining with just yes/no and vague complaints of "I can't do it all." There may be something else that can help with this, which is what I was trying to get out. Without the TG rewards and the double challenges, this game is starting to get boring to me. Those changes helped keep in fresh/add incentive.

    The amount of supplies and XPs to get for upgrades is so high, that the Challenge does not affect it too much (again for me.) And unless you are in a Guild that has requirements, or there is something that you want do to get Challenge rewards, people do not have to even bother with the Challenge. There is absolutely nothing in it which requires people to do it. As I mentioned in another thread, the Challenge also is really difficult (for me) to get past 180 for the most part and the Guild caps out. So the Guild gets twice as many rewards.

    In terms of the competition for rankings, having two Challenges a week keeps it open. With one there is a place where grinding out stars becomes prohibitive. And I would guess people who have that as priority (being a ranked guild) have that as a primary focus.

    In this challenge I ran up 208 stars and accumulated enough to upgrade Outpost from 4-5, upgrade the zombie pit one level, upgrade legendary armor for an assault from lvl 17 to 18, upgraded a shooter from lvl 8 to lvl 13 and upgrading a scout from lvl 16 to 17 right now. All without spending money to purchase anything. Trading in TGs, scraping gear, running some missions. When my gas is filled it is 21 cans, but I am not sure it is changing that much.

    So anyway, those are my thoughts. I could have (should have) looked at bracketing a bit better. But I am not sure this was a rehash of polls. Was trying to see if there was more that can have some productive input then the simple yes/no things.

    Level 43 here with maxed lv 17s all with maxed blue/gold gear....

    2 challenges are way too much!! ive been playing since launch pretty much and ive still not completed story missions!
    As a guild leader, i feel i have to play stars to the max ( after all, how can i tell my members to go HAM, when im not ).

    This game is no longer fun ( IMO ), its a chore.

    That is your choice. If you don't like the consequences of your choice, then make a different choice.

    Why are people not seeing this?

    Not just the challenge mission, running others also. I am usually at 180 Stars in two days and still running others. Depends on the gas I pull in chests. Plus the exploration mission I have has a base of 8,900 and often will pull another 6,000-10,000 in the chests with the occasional Gold Chest big supply pull and TG gold ticket big supply pull

    Add: My Scout just leveled up to 16 from 17, so yesterday had zeroed out XP. Back up to over 400K after starting leveling up a lower shooter from 8 to 9. I scrap pretty much all equipment at this point which helps. Just pulled 19,500 Gold Ticket Supplies from TG and last run for XP was 15,100 with base of 4,400 and the rest from chests.

    I like 2 challenges because it's the only thing in game worth to play. Right now exploration missions are big joke when we get 10k supplies after mission. Waste of time.
    I don't play Outpost because always I receive less TG than expected.
    So in overall only challenges makes this game playable...

    I like to track player level advancement and challenge scores, and with two challenges a week (plus the time change screw-up) i find I don't get time to record the info. I also notice players who participate in one, and pretty much blow off the other. I can deal with this fairly easily with a kick, but it's making it tough to find good players. I'm getting a pretty regular rotation on the bottom end of the guild....people arent interested in two a week.

    I love the 2 per week! More Rewards IMO & I still have plenty of time to tend other stuff too. I usually hit my max stars second day..
    I would like to see us have one weekend a month with no challenge & a kick ass event & perhaps it would make everyone happy :wink:

    Do a poll to find out?

    Frankly, the rewards on challenges are too small until you've been round the map at least 8 times!
    Although it's more fun than grinding on the same ole levels.
