    @Zeena if they let me choose the survivor type I want, I'd have so many extra radios leftover & a ton of ranged survivors lol

    I'm going to have to agree with @NCDawgFan on this 1, idc personally if people have green badges, but have noticed the holier then thou attitude because of them now but not from all. Like I stated in a different post, I guess anyone can make videos these days & put any kind of gibberish together on their computers, but does that make them right? & unless they are a well established player with great tips that players can actually use, should they be rewarded for them? & then due to the title given to them as (content creator), some players may be misguided into thinking they work for ng or are developers of some sort & follow advice that may be false or the hard way of doing things just because they made a video, but barely got their feet wet in the game themselves lol.

    Everyone should get treated with respect regardless & everyone has their own opinion, but I also agree with an earlier post by @masmith93 as maybe some more established players can do a written text or early newsfeed that players can rely on & that is very active in forums so players know & feel more comfortable with listening to.

    I'm just here to play a game & kill time & don't really need or care about badges that do nothing lol, but maybe they should have badges & titles for players that actually work hard to keep their camps & survivors constantly maxed & have actually seen & passed almost everything & scenerio in the game, instead of players that make a cool video but can't pass episode 5 lol.

    Those are the players that ng should be giving early announcements regarding content to, as I'm sure more new & old players would feel more comfortable taking advice & tips from them or how to get their camps ready for future updates, not players 5 updates behind the pack lol



    ↑↑↑ This. 100% agree ↑↑↑
    All of it although I've highlighted the best bit.

    Well my lvl 10/11 survivors are maxed out so I'll use radios in the hope to get higher lever survivors, can't imagine the event being helpful to those already nearing the completion of this game though...

    I haven't seen any announcement for this weekend event, is it inreased chance for epic/leg from radios?
  • PimpOfTheDeadPimpOfTheDead Member Posts: 654
    @Black_Jack even some of us maxed out players could always use a tweak here & there on our rosters, the only 2 survivors I need is either another epic or legendary Hunter & a legendary shooter as have 1 outdated from both those classes since update to b whole again, but also have quite a few that only cap at 18 so for next council update I will need a bunch of 19+ survivors lol. Have 1220 radios now so will see how it goes 1st then will save as many as I can, I know needing only 2 can sound pretty petty but with those 2 missing at lvl 18 I'm sure I could do a whole lot more damage lol

    We haven't had this event since March! I've been through 4 events and still don't have a legendary. I've been saving phones for weeks! If the new system is going to be better then there is no harm in spending radios now.

    I'm like all the others - I'm going for it.

    Anyone got a link to a real developer announcement of what the update will do for survivor choices? Rumors are nice I suppose, I just want to know if there has been an official announcement about it.

    zbot that doesn't pertain to the question regarding update and or the specific KIND of survivor you might be able to request.
  • zbotzbot NML Legendary Moderator, OW Moderator Posts: 7,357
    @FearlessFreep, as far as I am aware of there's no official announcement regarding that other than what the Content Creators released in the videos.

    Sorry, I thought you were asking about this week's event.
  • Japes87Japes87 Member Posts: 1,399
    @OneLessTitan I appreciate the info and shared it with my guild. Higher level players who don't have major class holes to fill (yes I said class holes) can make a more informed decision about using or not using radios this weekend. I don't know why this thread create so much animosity.. Zoson and Co contribute with youtube videos and guides and onelesstitan contributes with exhaustive testing and data collection. Both are good

    Just in case anyone missed it earlier:

    This weekend event is going to give you an increased chance of finding higher level survivors from radio calls.

    Future improvements to the radio call system will not give you increased chances of finding higher level survivors from radio calls. They will be normal.

  • PimpOfTheDeadPimpOfTheDead Member Posts: 654
    @TK-421 so does that mean we won't get another radio event ever? Or just the future changes won't give us increased chance & will be normal, unless there is also a future radio event as well? & even when they are normal chances, the levels of max survivors will still increase? But just have a new format
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    @PimpOfTheDead
    It isn't last event lol. Just radio call system will be changed a bit.

    In the next update we're going to be overhauling the experience of finding survivors. It will be awesome, as well as a lot more rewarding and engaging, and i'm 100% sure you'll prefer it to the current system. People are now saying "omg don't do the event!" because they think this new mysterious system is going to cause them an avalanche of awesome survivors. I mean it could do, but the chances of finding Legendary survivors will be the same in that system as it is normally.

    @TK-421 thx that's what I figured & between all the Oh No's & Use them up's, I just wanted a bit more clarification is all lol, I'm sitting on over 1200 radios waiting patiently & only need to replace 2 survivors & for the most part do my own thing regardless cause I don't listen well lol, but so many people tend to freak out & start assuming different things when something new is coming out & on many different posts or threads it gets confusing sometimes figuring out which 1 is which lol
  • JohnbertJohnbert Member Posts: 192
    damn, i'm sitting on 530 radios and need this event so much! love it! my wishlist:

    1-2 legendary assault
    2 legendary hunter, another epic
    1 legendary or epic bruiser (shouldn't be a problem lol)
    1-2 legendary or epic warrior
    characters should've at least lvl17, better 18. :)

    what i dont need is scouts and shooters. so i guess i'll pull a lot of them :#:#
  • theRealBendertheRealBender Member Posts: 1,251
    Of we're going to make a wish list i want 3 each Legendary of all classes, all at max level.
    There! Lol
    Back from 2016 :p

    @TK-421 -- thanks for popping in! Your description of the changes being way better, awesome, and rewarding, and also being apparently exactly the same in regards to results is confusing to me. I can't wait to see it, and thanks for convincing me not to spend my radios this weekend.

    People keep putting words in my mouth; in no way did I say the new upgrades are going to max all your sluts with dope survivors for barely any radios. I posted my speculation, and clarified it with the fact that it was my speculation on what was going to happen. And I definitely didn't say I was going to be spending all my radios blindly after the changes in a non-event which a few people think I'm going to do. There's probably no way I'll ever spend a radio outside an event; so please keep the events that people actually like and want coming...especially after the changes and the next council upgrade!

    Good luck to everyone with their calls!

    Max all your sluts with dope survivors! That's sound way more interesting than what you meant to type. Odd that auto correct thought slut was the better choice than slots.

    I've got 457 radios. Can't say that I'll spend them all this weekend, but I'm probably going to put a big dent in that supply at least.

    Of the six legendary survivors I've got, the one I use the most is capped at lvl 16, and none can hit lvl 19. Of the four that can hit 18, two are assaulters, one's a bruiser, and ones a shooter. So yes, I need some legendaries that I will actually use. Which isn't to say that those are bad classes, they just don't suit my play style, especially if I'm farming exploration missions.

    On the other hand, I'll probably show a lot of restraint once/if I actually get a few legendaries that I want, because XP isn't easy to come by when you need over half a million per level. So if I blow through all of my radios and replace all of my borderline-useful or worse survivors, there's no way I'll be able to cap them all before they become obsolete.

    My wishlist? Three Legendary hunters, preferably with gold luck and dodge, as long as I'm wishing. A legendary shooter or two, same traits. A Legendary Warrior or two, with gold luck and dodge and silver retaliate. Heck, even epics would be a major improvement, my team for three-warrior quests includes an uncommon. No, I don't actually expect to get that many, especially of the classes and traits I want. I'm always really lucky at getting crap legendaries on the bonus weekends :-)

    Off-topic, but in response to my wishlist: Since it was announced in game, I just blew through my entire supply of radios. I got one of every class that I needed and two hunters, one of which is capped at 18, but all the other legendaries are capped at 19. AND ANOTHER TWO LEGENDARY ASSAULTERS. A few epics that I took because my survivors of those classes capped out much lower. Didn't keep any rare survivors, and probably immediately retired almost as many epic survivors as I kept. And still probably kept more than I'll be able to level before I want to replace them.

    My luck with traits was better than usual, but there's still only one legendary that I was happy when I looked at the traits. My legendary warrior is completely missing dodge of all things.

    @Shut_Up -- lol...id like to blame autocorrect or extremely fat fingers, but neither is probably true...maybe a Freudian slip?

    the fingers you have used to dial are too fat...(two Simpsons references from the same episode in one night? I'm awesome and pathetic!)
  • PimpOfTheDeadPimpOfTheDead Member Posts: 654
    @Shut_Up u had time & were able to point out & fix the "autocorrect" in the last sentence, but just couldn't be bothered with fixing it in the 1st place lmfao
  • trixtatrixta Member Posts: 86

    Agreed! !!! 300 radios used all bruisers. I am going to finally uninstall this piece of crap game.
  • timflo83xtimflo83x Member Posts: 88
    @TK-421 When will the maximum level increase for survivors? The picture showed level 20 but it seems people are only pulling 19 and below. Would be nice to get higher levels since the next update for council will enable us to get to level 19 already.
