Level 15 and 16 Weapons for 7500Tg / survivors level 17

Every time I save up and open a chest for 7500 trade goods I get a 15 or 16 weapon or armor even though I have level 17 survivors.

I'm wondering why I'm not able to get level 17 stuff . Is it a bug?

(workshop and training grounds are fully upgraded too)

    if a mod could just settle that it's about player level and not survivor level i'll be satisfied. gotta build some buildings then

    I'm sticking with player level myself.

    Lvl 15 gear from the 7500 crates at player level 43. Lvl 16 gear from 44-45. 17 from 46-47.

    I'm hoping it's player level 46 for level 17 gear as I am level 45.5 ;-)

    it's not player level, I was level 43 with 3 level 17 players last week and got level 17 legendary scout & warrior weapons, just got to 44 and got level 16 legendary assault.

    as I recall, mods said level of equipment you get is typically +1/-1 of your highest level player

    @kryptonix @Jenny damn I'm 41.....I knew I should have upgraded those farms and tents at some point lol. anyways, glad to know i'm not the only one in this boat.

    @DERRICK from our guild is 46 and he's been collecting 17 and 18 stuff for a while now.... and he's got literally everything in 17-20. I'm so jealous xD

    @zbot thanks for the info

    @Kappa123 you're making my day since I am close to level 46.

    I'm level 48 (almost at 49 but everything is maxed) with all level 17-19 survivors (maxed at 17 obviously)...my last 3 7500 trade good unlocks were all level 18 legendary items (1 warrior armor, 1 hunter rifle, and 1 shooter armor).

    I hope this helps!!

    @OldGoth you mention that you need to "calculate it another way" and that the "math is based on something else". Would you be willing to share a brief overview of what it is based on so that we can spend our tomatoes / XP / gold more efficiently?

    If we know it is based on level then it is worth our time to upgrade buildings that we generally wouldn't prioritize (tents...).

    Thank you.

    @SlickRick thanks, it does help.

    so I guess it is down to player level then (among other things)....not a bug. At least this has been solved.

    btw, got a guy in my guild who only just hit 43 and he's opening up level 17 armor/weapons from the 7500 crates. so it's good news for us level 42s :)

    Btw I get a ton of level 20 stuff especially when I get to level 20 in the challenges but it's all pretty much uncommon or common stuff...I've got a few level 19 rares/epics

    @slick rick yeah. i get level 20 stuff from challenges and sometimes even normal deadlies too, it's just the chests that insist on giving me max 16s still lol

    @Sierra I already asked @OldGoth two weeks ago here to tell us about the magic math of the drop system, but unfortunately no answer yet.

    I am level 42 and have 11 survivors with level 17 now, but still receive only 15&16 gear. I know from players with level 43 who receive lvl 17 gear, but I also read from people who are level 45 and still don't receive lvl 17 gear. So apparently the gear level does not directly depend on the player level, but for sure it is somehow influenced by it. Maybe they average the building levels somehow.

    For now my advice is to upgrade the buildings.

    @Kappa123 Not a bug, moving thread to general section.

    I'm also getting gear a couple of levels below what is useful.
    This is why I prefer to open 15 gold crates @ 500 each than 1 legendary @ 7500.
