Is is safe to say...

We won't be seeing any more 3 times XP weekend events anymore? Should I dump all the weapons I've been hoarding?

    I wish the thread title had been completed instead of vague on purpose as I would have opened it anyway but I don't know why triple scrap events would necessarily be off the table.

    I don't think people would be opposed to a XP event and the XP booster combined so if they do a triple scrap again and you didn't wait you might regret it.

    I think it's fairly safe to say that we wont see an XP event of any kind again (maybe ever). First off, you can buy it anytime so it's more convenient for the EU. Second, can you imagine all the whining about an XP scrap event from all the people that just spent money and scrapped their inventory.
    Third, it's not in NG interest to offer us something for free that we can buy.

    Oh man, I would love to know the answer to this one. I've been hoarding decent gear for awhile in anticipation for a XXXP scrap event. I guess I can hold off selling them at the 2x boost rate until it gets full, now that the magic number is 299 before they auto-scrap you back to 280.

    I'm kinda guessing though, that NG would avoid holding another triple scrap now that the boosters are here. Unless they made it so you couldn't combine them, otherwise you could boost that up to x6 :p

    While I agree that they're less relevant now. I don't see why they would stop doing them completely. Just like I'd hope we'd still see increased survivor quality callout events. Both are still *useful* just not as useful.

    I'm wondering what kind of event we'll see announced tomorrow ;)))

    You know, smack dealers sometimes give newcomers a little taste for free. Makes business sense.
    I'm lost.

    Check out the DMZ guild. We're recruiting. Here.

    Listen to this guy - he's got lots of experience with this & really know what he's talking about.

    So if you buy the double xp offer, does all xp double everywhere including scrap prices, walkers at wall etc?
  • SlickRickSlickRick Posts: 2,731
    @Lydia

    Yes this includes gear and survivors...best thing to do when you have it activated is XP side missions

    they should still do the xp events cause there are still the f2p that wont get the booster so they still need to keep the f2p players around

    I'm sure the braintrust has all kinds of weekend events in the works some repeat but mostly they mix it up. maybe now they will have deadly missions return in some form of an event to help those that need to complete the achievement and make use of the memorial

    I guess we'll find out tomorrow for sure...but I have to side with SB on this one and say it would make sense for them to keep doing weekend events...the boosters appear to be a permanent deal and really only affect those willing to pay cash money dollar bills

    The weekend events are still highly beneficial for the FTP players and I'm sure NG realizes that...the changes in the last update should have no bearing on that

    I refuse to do such a thing. Breaking out the old credit card however is another story. Couldn't resist and had to try them both. Highly recommended. :)

    We haven't had a herd event in a long time. Can't imagine it will be radios, supplies or XP. Of course it could be our first Scout Weekend Event. WOOHOO!

    @SlickRick Even more impressive, we are getting indoor plumbing at some point in the not so distant future.

    @NCDawgFan I was so giddy with trying both boosters I actually upgraded my Legendary Scout from 17 to 18. Yeah, I was that caught up in the moment

    Oh there will be whining no matter what, but I don't think point 2 would stop them from doing it. However, they should give the extra boost.
    So if its 3x XP, and someone gets the boost then its 4x XP (not 6x).

    Its like anytime. I could start a building upgrade now and use gold to speed it up, and then they announce 5s upgrades.

    I did the same thing @Perdtin and even his weapon, and he lives permanently in my Outpost.
  • PerdtinPerdtin Member Posts: 783
    @NCDawgFan I may finish the weapon at some point. Between the Scout traits and Weapon Traits, actually strong. Broke the out of mothballs and took the scout on about 25 runs or so. Just because i had to :) Packs quite a whack, but too often to do the whack could be counterwhacked :)
  • NCDawgFanNCDawgFan Member Posts: 2,070
    @Perdtin I even used my recently leveled bruiser on some story missions tonight. The Morgan staff was a pretty cool weapon. I had to definitely dust him off but he served me nicely on some nightmare missions.
