When is the radio call event?

Radios have been collected, but when the Weekend Event: Increased drop rates for Epic and Legendary survivors!?

    It usually comes out right after you loose patience and collect a bunch of crappy survivors, lol. In all seriousness, I hope they have one soon. I'm sitting on 75 calls, just waiting for it.

    Game makers will often time events to prevent stockpiling soooo good luck. Like trying not to put out when we all know you really wanna.
    When soft cap comes I quit the game.

    I've got 416 radios, I've been saving for awhile, I really do hope the next survivor event is soon.

    It seems to happen every 5-6 weeks. We are due for one. I think it has been 5 weeks since the last one.

    Alas, I haven't saved up as many radios as I did last time. With the outpost release, I retired the crappy ones that came with it, set my C team as defenders, and burned a few radios trying to get a few keepers for my A and B teams.

    @Phelan: I got a legendary and two epics last radio event, all capping at 16 (considering my best survivor capped at 15 prior to that, I was happy for the extra level). Then again, I am still considered a mid-level player. My training ground caps at 12 right now.

    Of course it matters, there is a difference between survivors from 2 different rarity (e.g Epic vs Legendary):

    1. Higher base damage and base health

    2. Higher maxed out level

    An Epic survivor called from radio with a starting level 10 will max out at 18, but a Legendary survivor with same starting level 10 will max out higher at 20.

    A survivor's base damage and base health are unaffected by his equipped gears. They will only increase when you upgrade your survivors.

    In this case, Jim's total health (993) will increase when I start to upgrade the equipped jacket.

    Of course, use the best survivors and gears that are available to you.

    The ideal combination would be legendary survivors + fully upgraded legendary gears with desirable traits.

    If you only have epic survivors, they are not far off legendary survivors if you equip them with good gears.

    As you progress through the game, you might have the luck to call legendary survivors from radios. That's when you decide whether or not to keep them.

    look at survivor traits.. legendaries got 4 traits (2 gold trait), while an epic only got 3 traits (1 gold trait).

    You should pay more attention to traits, they are very important

    Should be soon , usually once a month (since i started at least). With all these new events they are adding who knows though , all time worst event last time lol , it could have at least been 5sec heal times.

    Half-backed theory:

    Today I have received an unusual high number of radios in crates and from gate-walkers. More than 15!

    Perhaps it's just random luck, but if others have recrived more radios as well, perhaps, perhaps it's NG's silent gift, warming up to a radio weekend event...?
    I'm lost.

    Notice also Legendary have 4 attributes, two at 10% and two gold at 15%. Epics has only three one of which is Gold 15%. Drop down to Rare survivor you get 5%. Equipment works this way too. Notce the Legendary pistol has two gold icons at 15% etc

    Looks like a similar pattern, 1 such radio event approximately around the middle of the month since January :wink:
