3.5 update “first impression”

After seeing the update video announcement I must say I’m pretty impressed with the new things coming to NML. Thanks @Fluxxx and the team for working hard on it for us.

P.S. can I have my winter Lucille before Christmas 🎄 plz!? 😆 bamf negan has a lot of heads to crack this holiday season.

    That 20% increase in tomato output will help a lot.
    Guild wars looks better.
    Winter campaign and new challenge maps.. Awesome 👍
    Nicely done NG 😊

    That snow map would have looked amazing in 1998

    Agree with all above! GW baby!!!!!

    Seems like some great changes to it. Perhaps with the battles spread out the servers won't catch on fire anymore 😉

    Tomatoes grind will be real with new hospital and mission car as well. At least farms and silos are getting a boost as well. Guild wars will bring some fun and variety for sure. Looks good, let’s see :D

    Granted the Council Upgrade has been needed for so long to say the very least, hearing that Guild Wars music has got me super hyped!!!!

    I agree @psychwolf the extra hospital slot is heaven sent and more gas who can argue with that? Unless you ate Taco Bell 🔔 😆

    Just wish we the option to chose between Day or Nightime variants of current levels or a Bayou/Swamp level (analogous to "Knee Deep" from Season 8B - greenish tint included - but with fan palms and cypress trees)...or with creepy/mist fog.

    Let's wait and see.
    I just noted that he insisted on guild war is a beta version.
    This quest may be enjoyable for sure whatever.

    @JoeSmart i 1000% agree, it’s too cool looking not to be area stun like the Morgan stick and to be honest the range on a bat is almost that of a staff so........

    @Coolseb it being a beta is the smartest thing NG has done yet. Their biggest issue when GW came out was it wasn’t tested on the massive scale. Anything less this time and they would be foolish.

    I am going to have to hear more about these weapons for the Winter Campaign. If festive Lucille is just a regular bruiser weapon with a fun skin that would be a bit disappointing. Granted it's only the 2000 token reward, but the featured weapons usually have some sort of special functionality. Then again considering how bad some of those special weapons have been, maybe a regular weapon with solid traits is just fine. :D

    Also, it sounds like the festive shotgun will be like Alpha's shotgun. That would be pretty cool, even though I bought one already. However, I have doubts that they will give away one that is just as good considering it's a new weapon.

    Everything else sounds good. Hopefully Guild Wars will work properly and the extra healing spot is greatly appreciated.

    Their thinking is straight forward with this new update. Right on! There is always time for PVP upgrades. They are putting nails in the framework where they need to go imo. Back to making NML one of the best games available. Very cool stuff! Cant wait!

    Never thought about it before, but I actually have never heard the music or sound effects. I've always played NML muted.

    I'm concerned about a battle requiring EXACTLY 5 team members, but overall I'm optimistic about the update.

    It couldn't have come at a better time. I was seriously on my way out the door. (Didn't run Distance at all last week, phoned in last challenge, just not motivated to play.) And our guild lost 2 vet players recently from boredom.

    I’m hoping you don’t have to update everything else prior to council, but we already know that ain’t the case lol

    I don't recall any council update where you didn't have to do other buildings first. It's nice wishful thinking, but nevah gonna happen.

    The only problem with mission car upgrades is that the amount of gas to run missions usually increases too, so we’re spending supplies to upgrade without real benefit. Otherwise, I’m looking forward to the update! The new missions look cool!

    @Deadheads you know what would make that festive shotty unique and beast all in 1 function?

    - Charge attack stuns targets in the cone spread.

    @Fluxxx 👀 it’s not too late to put the icing on the cake haha or should I say a bow on the 🎁.

    Take a closer look, it has lights that distract walkers for .25 of a turn.
    P.S. during overwatch of course.
