    It's no good for me unless I had about 30 million XP in the bank

    My camp holds 2mil XP
    Each item I need to upgrade takes over 2.1 mil XP to upgrade

    So I upgrade part of one item in 10 seconds and then I am done until I can get another 2 mil XP

    The first 10 seconds of the event would be lots of fun :D

    Ahhh, I'm so bummed. I'm going to be out of town this weekend and unable to take full advantage of the event!

    @MizTy Next week, you should request 1 minute gas, increased chance of radios, ICELS, double XP from kills, triple XP from scrap, and 5 sec building/survivor/equip upgrades as the weekend event to celebrate the return of TWD :)

    It's pretty much useless to me without double XP

    Exactly. As it is, I'm accruing just enough every day for the next upgrade (which then takes a whole day), so there's no need to rush it without having the chance to earn more XP.

    Plus, is anyone else worried that the new update will drop and have a new Training Ground and/or Workshop level (thus meaning we should be saving our XP) as per @Shteevie's comments?

    Training ground and workshop are tomatoes, aren't they? It's been so long since I've done one of those, I've forgotten....... :/

    5 second upgrade is a bit meh unless you buy a booster, which I won't.

    Right, but once upgraded, you spend XP to level up survivors and weapons.

    Yeah, those are building and require tomato cans
    I missed Shteevie's comments @General_Quatre ??

    @EL34xyz not so much his comments actually, but the "what's coming in 2.2" announcement referring to upgrades to multiple buildings, and some references by Shteevie that there will be plenty of use for tomatoes with the next update. Can't find where.

    They definitely want to boost their Gas & XP boosters this weekend.
    5s upgrades are otherwise useless as @EL34xyz mentioned

    Events are recently the same. Double food, double xp, more radios, more gas, then repeat the secuence. Higher chance of legendary/epic survivors again could be really good! Or maybe a new cool event.

    The only event im looking forward to now are increase in chances & quantity radio drop. Can earn 2000 radio if u work ur ass throughout the 3 day. but sadly i still have social life, max is only willing to spend 2 day boosting for 1200 radio lol.

    Ok, at this point I have to say: Thanks NG. By removing 12,5k TGs deals from TG shop, you not allowed me to get enough lvl19 leg gear, so I have only 3 pcs and not going to buy booster/s during this weekend. I had plenty TGs stored before getting my survs to lvl19, and those deals were removed day before I upgraded my 1st 19s, so my only chance was during "crazy TG shop deals" event and my RNG was not kind to me that time. Ok, I will wait for another one 5secs upgrade event and will upgrade slowly.

    Well @KelvSG, if you're sad about having a social life, just go for that working your ass 3 day's continuously and extend that indefinitely. I think you're sadness will resolve itself.

    I remember being told we won't have the ICELs event because NEXT thought they had lined up better events for 6 months. Then they serve up this crap. Not sure what the thought process is over there but I think they need a check up from the neck up.

    Why ppl still moaning about ICELS? It's really unnecessary. We have more ways to get radios, more call options ect. Every my second call x15 I receive hero tokens or at least epic survivors.
    ICELS? What for...

    Backing to subject.. I love 5 sec upgrade event;))

    @CLOSURE keep your posts constructive. If you have a beef with the developers, don't be a jerk about it. Say your piece and move on.

    Really this ICELS should be put to the rest, once and for all.

    I don't see any difference between percentage of epics/ legendries I got during ICELS and without ICELS.

    With the upgrade option available, except 1, all my survivors are legendries.

    The only benefit ICELS now may have would be increased tokens and nothing more.

    the 5 second equipment upgrade event is useless for me as I have survivors lined for upgradation

    @amiga If people want to "moan" as you say, about ICEL then that's well within their rights to do so. Many people here moan about the same thing over and over again so no need to talk about them moaning. Plenty of people ask for the same thing over and over again and they aren't made fun of.

    I said my piece and moved on, then you called me a jerk, pulling me back in.

    The thing is, if you justify something by saying you're doing something better and then produce something worse you need to expect to be called on it. Unfortunately not being five or intimidated by idiots dishing out insults I can't see as you helped me in your moderation there.

    Not being someone who cares at all for internet forum glory I say clearly that there is no logic.

    Complaint about an event going - Told you have better ideas - Getting worse ideas delivered - Nothing to argue about imo. Point made.

    @zeeblack You said you didn't see any difference between the number of epic and legendary survivors you got with or without the event. I see you have been a member since last year but I'm not sure if you've seen the older threads that were used to gather data from using radios with and without the event. I'm not here saying bring back the event but to say you didn't see any difference would be turning a blind eye to the threads that did gather the data and the number crunching done by @OneLessTitan and some others (I'm going to have to look back and edit this so I give the right people credit) that showed there is a difference. I think the chance of a legendary survivor went from 2% to 5% and overal chance of at least an epic survivor was 40% during the event.

    You might not care about the event and maybe even get upset when people talk about it but the numbers did show that the chance of getting an epic or legendary survivor does go up by a statistically significant difference.

    I have noticed personally, a drastic increase in epic pulls lately. During the gold call discount, I made about 45 calls and almost always ended up with an epic (with 2 legendaries). I made my free call yesterday and got a choice between rare and epic. I was making a gold call every other day or so before the birthday events and was getting epics pretty regularily.
    Has it been confirmed (or shown through call data) that ng ramped up the rates recently?

    Just anecdote. If there is more to to it than that, then increased legendaries has become obsolete.

    @All

    I owe everyone an apology. Clearly I wasn't specific enough when I asked for an event with 5 sec upgrades. So @NG, could you please change this weekend's event to 5 sec equipment upgrades with costs to upgrade halved? That would be sweeeeeet!

    Meh event is pointless if people dont buy gas booster or 2x xp.

    So this event is useless for f2p user.
