2.9 Sneak Peek and Hero Week 2

Hey everyone!

We recently ran Hero Week, where certain Heroes were highlighted in special calls and bundles throughout the game. We loved it, and according to the feedback we received on the forums, social media channels and through our player support team, you did too! So, to celebrate the upcoming release of update 2.9 (it's on its way) we'll be running a second Hero Week with some of the Heroes who didn't manage to find their way in first time around.

The rules haven't changed since out last run, but here they are again: you'll have an increased chance of finding the Hero of the Day in the special call, and it'll be double tokens for that Hero when it appears.

Here's a schedule for the upcoming Hero Week:

Sasha Monday
Ezekiel Tuesday
Jesus Wednesday
Carol Thursday
Dwight Friday
Abraham Saturday
Morgan Sunday

However, before you decide which Heroes you're going to recruit there's some information about update 2.9 that we'd like to share with you, as it might affect your decision. Your Heroes should be able to do heroic feats, and we've received feedback that some of them are currently not there. With that in mind, the following Heroes are going to be receiving increases to health, damage output and will have the chances of their leader trait activating improved and/or the effect of their leader trait made more powerful:

Carl, Carol, Daryl, Eugene, Ezekiel, Gabriel, Jesus, Michonne, Morgan, Negan and Rick!

We hope that you'll enjoy the second Hero Week and more information about update 2.9 will be coming in the following week, including more information about the Hero improvements for the Heroes above! Good luck with your calls and see you in the Radio Tent!

    Will the camp/training grounds/equipment tent increase in level with this update?

    This will affect my decisions on buying bundles with weapons, so it'd be nice to know.

    AWESOME! The advanced communication of updates to these heroes is much appreciated. Thank you!

    Will anything other than base stats and trait percentages be changed? For example, are any of the traits themselves or body shot mechanics different?

    Carl, Carol, Daryl, Eugene, Ezekiel, Gabriel, Jesus, Michonne, Morgan, Negan and Rick!

    Also, if it's helpful to people, here are the heroes that WON'T be changed based on FOABP's list above:
    Abraham, Aaron, Dwight, Glenn, Governor, Maggie, Merle, Rosita, Rufus, Sasha, Tara

    Looks like a lot of the changes are coming to the melee survivors, which makes sense.

    LOL. Sasha was an oversight, but I excluded Jerry because he hadn't been released yet.

    I just unlocked Abe!
    It took months!
    I reached level 49 before it happened and he’s not on the list!

    Personal attack on me! I know it is! NG hates me!

    hope y’all can take a joke :#

    Hahha Anyways, love the game, love the news, would love Santa to drop off that bungle of radios I asked for a little early!!!

    Keeping players informed is what I personally appreciate the most, many games don’t even answer response requests, you guys do that AND give advanced feedback? Awesome +3.

    Heroes need a 6th trait or an extra trait when they're Not in the leader position. When they're Not in the leader position Heroes only have 4 traits and that doesn't make them special at all, it makes them pretty much useless and Epic at best

    This is a really good point. Even if their leader trait only applies to them it could be made to work, but a much better option would be to have hero traits interact with one another to open up new strategies.

    Mannnnn, couldn't have given us a heads up as soon as the challenge started? :p I've gotten 100+ radios just from guild rewards and spent them immediately! No time to save for Sasha on the first day
