    @blynknz
    The main effect is the psycological one because it's VERY frustrating to find food in crates and from wall walkers (not to mention the farms) and see it go to waste.

    yes, and i know that the maxed players are extremely happy, but its seems like NG can take advantage of them because the only other option is to let them waste.

    But like I said, I am not maxed. If the maxed players like this conversion rate, then good on them.

    Good move NG. I almost cashed mine in but I needed 4.5 million to do my training grounds. I hope this option sticks around as I will be maxed out soon.

    It should. First it's like it is now: event style.
    But some version of it should come into the game as a fixed feature sometime. How it will compare to what we see now, only Next knows. Hmm, maybe even they haven't pinned it down entirely yet. :)
    Long short though: this will not be your last chance to trade supplies, just the first.

    It would be nice to have a replace option for the trade store.
    Click on a item and delete it so it can be replaced by another item

    Sort of how you can do on quest now

    I doubt I will be using the 100k and 2.5m trade goods in the store now
    So basically, that's two spaces used up for items that I do want, like tokens

    Just an idea

    Looks like these two options were added to the already present options there. So nothing was swapped out from them.

    Also @Shteevie explained a couple of times that other items will be added to the rotation as well once it's been around a few days for us to get used to.

    The supplies are obviously a fine gesture to the endgame players that have had the frustrating full supplies since forever now. They were more than ready for this offer.

    Let's hope one of the next additions is in your liking.
    Maybe I will then also make my first purchase from the TG store. The offers so far have not appealed to me either.

    I am so so pleased about this.. I am a lvl 47 player and it takes at least a week for me to build up food supplies for an upgrade, and then highly depressing when i see my lovely full stock vanish to zero again. TGs on hand to replenish is going to change my life haha

    @Lydia, you know that you spend Supplies to get TG.

    This weekend is a double supplies weekend- go hit those explorations missions and I hope you open a ton of gold crates!

    The god of crates just deserted me. Just paid TG for two gold crates and got two items of RARE gear.

    My calculations were 120K = 500 TG's. This 100K = 400 TG's is pretty damn close. Based on my calculations comparing gold standard of 100 NG is on the money (96K instead of 100K but no complains here)

    NG did use their own conversions properly :)

    yes being maxed for well over a month & yes its sucks seeing "upgrade ur storage"... well i cant its maxed plus wall walkers dont show how much we loose from them just the messagr pops up.... its isnt the best conversion rate... but at least i can collect food again... id think the conversion should be 2.5m food for 50k tg that would be a lil better.. @Shteevie but i did use both twice & still got over 10m food but the conversion needs tweakin a lil at least 25k tg but still good add on

    I figured the conversion was probably in line with their normal conversion. Its just that if you happened to claim 20x500TG crates and got all supplies, you are only getting 20% back.

    This exchange rate is easier for us maxed players to swallow because we are just wasting millions of food for nothing now we get some tg for it at least. Because I'm maxed I think the exchange is fair.

    Did allready 3x the exchange (so a total of 7,8 kk tomatoes). While we have this 2xsupplies event for the weekend I think I'll do a fourth change. Important for me was that we do not loose TG in raids anymore. With all the tg I traded all offers in the shop so far.
    Needless to mention I am (sorry I was) maxed out. B)

    @blynknz @all absolutely agree about the trading in TG rewards comparison to supplies comparison.

    Overall Besides phones and tokens (via phones) XP is the most expensive commodity in the game to purchase with gold.

    Besides all maxed players being able to participate we aren't being screwed regarding the "trade supplies for TG" set up.

    I have max camp but aren't on max supplies, meaning j have nothing to upgrade but I was at 6 mil supplies yesterday morning.

    I'm actually playing supplies exploration missions again (as I think everyone should) this weekend.

    Regardless of where you are in this game you can make 100K TG's pretty quickly. At least trade in for that one if you can.

    At camp 55 Lvl 19 RSL I made 1 mil supplies on unlimited gas in about an hour. Absolutely worth the time in my opinion.

    Will the 10k tag wipe at next restock, I.e before I can get up to 2.5 mil cans? Or will it stay till claimed? Sorry if asked already
  • DLich
    DLich Member Posts: 5,473 ✭✭✭✭✭
    It resets each time. I can't guarantee you'll get it each time but I've claimed it 3 times already. 4th will be in 2 hours.

    Just on gold crates, they must be a preferred trade choice right? I know it is for me. Any chance of popping those in more frequently in the restocks? I pre.-update almost always claimed only good crates, but I don't mind the tokens and radios options too. Ppl might have differing opinions about the update, but newish ways to play the game is OK by me. Good job.

    One idea? Some sort of trade exchange to reopen early story missions on hard or extreme for another replay with tokens as rewards? Really stuck at middle level 16 survivors now to get any story mission play that I can complete.

    You should take advantage of this weekend event and go full trottle on the gas booster.
    I'm lvl45, and had upgrade 1 training ground, 2 hospital, 1 food storage + trade for 21,200 TG for the last 24 hr.
    Would say i have grind more or less 20m supplies :tired_face:

    That's would be kind of rediculous. You could get TG much faster from doing missions than from raiding then and that's at zero Risk of injuries. If you compare the time it takes to get TG from raiding or from food missions, then it's not that's bad. (At least if you're on full gas.)

    http://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/profile/mcbkhicks , yeah most of the nightmares done, although maxed on lvl 16 survivors vs 19 and 20 walkers for factory and church on hard. And some of the earlier nightmares

    @acb ive hardly ever raided i didnt care for outpost & i havnt been on a food mission in who knows how long... & i still think 2.5m food for 10k tg isnt bad cause all ive done is get food from farm plots & from crates so it was injury free in that aspect but the conversion could be a lil better than 10k tg for 2.5m food but if it dont change ill still use the swap when my food gets maxed again

    yea @Paulus i got ep 9-3 still open for old time farming every so often & ep 12 13 & 14 to complete on nightmare so yea they need to do somethin as all i got is challanges to do & side missions but might try raiding once this lil update to outpost happens next week

    Did I go to far? I have traded in about 19 million food and I now have MORE TG than supllies.

    My survivors are starring at all those wooden boxes in my camp and asking: what the f*ck happened to all that nice food we had???
    I'm lost.
