    I love the gas and XP booster options. Very good options. Thank you for reconciling our wishes

    I hope you guys get a chance to make a Game of thrones white walker game

    @Sipher07 If you think you're paying to win you may want to reevaluate what you consider winning. As @SlickRick said there is no way to "win" the game. This post seems like trolling for an argument with ftp players which is really not helping anyone.

    You can't win against the zombie apocalypse. Just survive and thrive. And if you're going to "pay to win" why not follow the rest of the 'our' and be gracious about it.

    Win an outpost battle. Win a mission win etc
    There is no endgame by design to continue a LT monetization model esp the show is going for a few more years

    @Sipher07

    You can win an Outpost battle and a mission without paying money...pretty sure there are countless examples of that

    Go play Walking Dead Road to Survival. THAT turned into a pay to play game! Awesome game but also had horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE drop rates for every thing and hours upon hours spent grinding..

    Tempting...but I can only handle one dangerously obsessive game that I spend lots of money unwisely on :)

    Yea I lost my obsession with that game when it began to feel more like a job to keep up with and pay for instead of a game where i can login and choose to pay to just give myself a quick boost. And with this game, I don't end up spending much because of all the weekend events and now these super cheap boosters.

    Swore when I downloaded this game I wasn't going to spend any money on it, but that didn't last after the 1st scout bundle for $5 lol, then told myself I'm done after I buy all the weapon bundles, but after wasting all that gold on gas the radio bundles started looking pretty good to restock gold lol. In short after several radio bundles after that it was all downhill from there & now living in a cardboard box behind 7/11 using their free wifi just to get my fix lmao, but unfortunately have spent $$ on all my apps & very Leery every time I think about downloading another lol. Glad I got out of my other game though & managed to sell my profile for 2k u.s funds which worked out to roughly $2500 Canadian, but sunk another few hundred of that back into this game lol

    I suppose technically we beat the game at this moment when we beat the Factory on Nightmare mode.. not sure if NG credits roll after that or not tho
  • CapletonCapleton Member Posts: 441
    Even though it may not be possible to 'win' it is not possible to compete without paying.
    Maybe not needed for Outposts...but what about challenges with those lovely farmable maps?

    And yes everybody is free to do as they like and NG isn't Mother Theresa but a company. I'm fine with that ;)

    Glad to see im not the only person paying. I get caught up and its just so easy to hit buy more gold when im upgrading something. I think if i sat down and figured up just how much ive actually spent on this game, I'd probably be pretty pissed off at myself haha.

  • I had a thread questioning how much everyone has spent on the game with tons of replies, from not a penny to those who have already signed away their first born child. It was a great thread until the mods closed it for absolutely no reason.

    Yeah im not proud but pretty sure ive spent a couple thousand. Can actually say this is the only computer(phone) game ive ever spent money on.

    I think I've spend about 10 British £s.
    And that's in the best part of a year that I've been playing.
    For reasons stated elsewhere I don't have much spare cash so I have to avoid the temptation to splash much on things of low expenditural (if that's a word) priority.

    In this game there is no big gap between ppl who spent thousands and those who spent few pounds. I'm almost maxed ect but game so far cost me £30 in 7 months...

    Please no discussion about selling accounts, it's against forum rules and EULA.

    @Oliverfelix you have to stop saying that. That's a 2x forum violation. Indirectly admitting to cheating and talking about selling your account.
    I'm lost.

    Why you think that @oliverfelix is cheating? Because his camp is maxed?

    Yeah, for the record, I liked the fact that one can successfully play the game without paying - not the notion of selling an account ..

    @Amiga because 1) you can't have a maxed camp AND maxed survivors AND maxed gear -- even if playing since launch -- if you didn't spend a dime. Someone recently did some math on that. 2) he has talked about using autoclickers a few days ago here on the forum.
    I'm lost.

    Don't think it's a violation to state I sold a different account on another game for $2000 u.s recently & im sure ng would be happy to know a few hundred of that went into there game lol

    @TheLostOnes I agree I did the math with no gold would take months to get maxed gear alone & that was a couple updates ago lol
