Lack of phones

Has anyone else been getting phones lately?

    I haven't been getting any.
  • I've got 4 since yesterday and have gone through over 130 gallons of gas

    I've been getting your share of phones I'm afraid, gas has been scarce for me. It is just luck I'm afraid
    yay Z Nation trailer now out for new season!

    I noticed the rate of phones (radios?) has dropped of significantly. Glad to know it's not just me.
    I like Zombies!

    I haven't been getting much lately but I think it waxes and wanes enough to relate it to luck.

    I got about 30 phones in the last 2 anything in this game it's completely random and depends on how much you play...although I know that won't stop people from complaining no matter what

    i dunno, I get almost 10 phones every day on average. Sure there may be many missions, ten or so, I get zero phones, but then I get mission that rewards me 7 phones like earlier today. I have now over 180 phones, and 30 them are from radio bundles, so bit more than 150 phones are gained within 14 days. So I can't complain about the ratio.

    BTW I've been trying more 5 calls since that one dude says he gets epics that way. I got 3 loser pulls and two epics but the epics both came in at level six. I think Im back to 15 pulls. Yes I am not getting as many phones as I was lately

    My phones have been decently plentiful recently, although I wouldn't say amazing. I have had times when I only came across 2 or 3 phones over several days time. I play quite a bit and quite consistently.

    I played all day yesterday, henceforth going through all that gas.

    And I'm still in the same 4 phones I got since yesterday. I've played 10 episode 12 deadly's in that time also.

    I understand point was it's random and no matter what happens some will get more some get less.

    And there are always those people that if they get 30 radios they'll be like "why didn't I get 40"?!!...unfortunately we live in a world of "I have to have everything NOW and nothing is ever good enough"

  • @SlickRick gotcha. I have had a week or two that was higher than my normal but since I started I've averaged 5-7 +/- 1 daily. Many report an average of 15+ daily.

    I played 8 deadly missions after my last post 3 hours ago, and got 5 radiophones...

    I have up given up caring about getting phones when even with multiple 15 phone calls from my level 8 radio tent, I constantly get 3 star assault survivors which are worthless to me. I'm talking 3 out of 4 call outs. Its like I'm assault cursed.
  • jt41jt41 Member Posts: 116
    I have had a similar experience. My calls have resulted in a ridiculous number of useless survivors. I was using up my radios every time I could get 15 scraped together at once. I'm trying a different method...collecting a large number to use all at one time. I'll either use them at a radio event or, if they won't offer one, I'll use it once all of my upgrades are maxed again with the recent NG release. If I still have nothing to work with, that will be my quitting point.

    I passed with radios as well. I used more than 300 radios recently and I got only 2 epic survivors worth to keep.
    This whole radio system is broken as hell.
    Useless in every aspect. I can't wait the day when it will be completely changed...

    Thanks for all the comments. I just wanted to know if it was just me.

    Between the December Radio event and the most recent, I saved up 143 radios. One of my guildies had only 62 in that time. By the next weekend, I had build back up to 37. The same guildy had collected 6.

    Since that time, I have only picked up 18 radios. for a total of 55. The guildy has collected 72 for a total of 78. It is completely random and luck of the draw.

    I noticed they have been stingy with phones recently too. Thought it was just me.... their way of pushing the 6 phone bundle. Just don't seem worth it.

    I've been getting the usual amount.
  • tunkytunky Member Posts: 538
    I get 2 to 3 on average, and i play a lot

    It seems to be random, but, linked to how full your roster is. When my roster is full, I get plenty of phones, use them 15 at a time, and get junk.
    When I lose 3 survivors to a deadly, I get no phones but more fuel in drops.
    When there is a "quick refuel" thing happening, all the drops are fuel. etc.

    Phones are rare and gold also. And it seems keeper gear is maybe once a week at most. So next to no gear, impossible to get new survivors and the grind is getting unbearable.

    I've collected 307 phones since the last survivor weekend.

    I have gotten a bunch of gas tanks but not a lot of phones.
    They could make a weekend where you get more phones when you kill walkers outside the gates or in the chests.

    It's random for me, some days I'll get 10+ and other days I'll get 1 or 2. Been getting more gold than anything, sometimes just 1, sometimes 7 or even 15 on gold tickets.
    Hardly ever get decent equipment in missions, and when I do it's always really low levels (level 13-15) legendary or epic, survivors are level 17, rendering those equipment useless.
    Recently got level 15 legendary and epic shooters armor, ;/
    With upgrades costing too much, I'd rather have a rare level 17 armor than low level leg or epic equipment
