Awful Radio Pulls

I don't know what to do anymore i can't pull a survivor to save my life. i have just done 14 consecutive 15 radio calls and got rare on every single one not even an epic this is after the epic weekend where i did 10 pulls and only got a single epic.

i feel like the code/game knows when an event or something is going on for extra radios. or at minimum realizes which players spend money and purposely gives them worse items in an attempt to get them to spend more to try and get what they want.

let me know if anyone else has had this experience or if im doing something wrong/weird thats causing these god awful pulls

    it's luck or i guess unluck of the draw. IF the was something coded to do with buying the radios it would most likely be an improved chance of getting something decent... i mean what's more likely to get you to spend again? a shiny golden legend or endless rare bums?

    I'm having the same crap luck to be honest. I'm getting scouts and bruisers. Not had a hunter in over a months and used 100's of radios. I use 15 at a time which is supposed to be guaranteed 3-5 star. An I'm getting 2 star. I'm getting seriously fed up now

    @blenderhead i hear what your saying but at the same time what is likely to get you to spend more wanting/needing better stuff, or already having it

    It is completely RANDOM!!

    I decided any radios I get over 700 to burn on 1 radio calls to just reject for the XP...so I had 726 radios this morning and decided to burn 26...I got 21 common/uncommons, 4 rares (mainly bruisers), and 1 legendary scout...I'm sure the odds of pulling a legendary anything on a 1 radio call are extremely rare...but it's proof that it can happen and there are NO magical forces conspiring against individual players.

    A lot of people on here seem like the types that if you buy 50 lottery tickets and don't win the $100 million powerball that you automatically think it's an unjust system and that they're out to get you

    @SlickRick the rates should be infinitely better than 1 epic in 24 pulls and thats my point yeah you got lucky with a legendary on 1 radio pulls but thats the exception not the norm you spent 26 radios and got a legend i spent 360 radios and got 1 epic dont you see the difference

    @whaler213

    Yes but it's an algorithm...without getting too technical it will NEVER work the way you or most people want...and I'm just saying complaining about it isn't going to cause the NG programmers to rewrite the entire algorithm...complaining breeds negativity which breeds stress...real life has enough stress...so why add to it for something that you can't control and will never change? Just trying to help...

    A computer can not generate a truly random number. There is an algorithm of some sort. Some variable(s) is used as input.

    That said, a lot of this certainly seems random. I get lousy rewards on deadly missions but good radio pulls. (I also got a legendary on a 1 radio call.) With some people it is the other way around.

    @SlickRick raises a good point about lottery tickets. A chance to get something is only a chance, not a guarantee. But, yes, it seems like some of you could be having better luck than you are having.

    I keep trying 15 radio calls for a 3rd Hunter to add to my two existing level 17 Epics but keep getting crap, mostly Bruisers and Scouts which are both worthless. Maybe one day.

    If you believe everything in this game that appears to be random is actually "completely" or "100%" random, I have a fire-proof snowball to sell you. Randomizing is only as good as the algorithms and they can (and do) tweak them.

    During the LEG event all I could pull was repeated scouts, 3 epics and already had 2. kept the ones with the most future upside and retired two of the 5. really only have the need for 3 of every type and am about there. Eventually wont really need anybody new to add..

    I haven't got a legendary survivor since before they started doing the 15 call thing. And it's just gotten worse since then imho.

    That's a great bruiser @rgerkman

    Just to let you know scouts & warriors are also melee weapon survivors.

    Ok. I felt the same regarding awful radio calls. But I've done two in 2 weeks with 15 radios. Last week I got an epic Hunter 12/19 and I just tried again and got her:
