Guys, you can't be serious. 4 straight days of 40 radio calls? 40 calls present the worst return on investment of any calls in the game and we now have 4 straight days of them. You guys have been killing it lately with the calls, but thanks for the opportunity to hoard my radios for the next usable call!

    They're good value for people who need survivors and heroes, since you get to keep 3. The selected heroes today wasn't very good though.

    40 calls give a guarantee hero on the first round, and cost less than ×2 calls (40 vs 45 for 3 options), and at least you have some control. If the heroes are actually good ones, then it's one of the best calls in the game. They usually give better options on the last days though.

    However, looking over it I noticed that the chance for featured Heroes is 14%? Shouldn't it be 15%? @Fluxxx I am not spending radios if NG is trying to short change us, 15% is already too low

    Save radios for guaranteed hero calls, only ones worth doing.

    This is a good call when all four heroes are actually useful and you aren't too picky about which of the four you get.

    If you make one call, you are guaranteed at least one hero. You can reroll the other two cards up to six times. If you get another hero in even one of those other six rolls, you aren't getting a bad value. You'd be spending 40 radios for two heroes + maybe even a third. In the special 25 radio calls, you'd spend 50 radios to get two heroes.

    Those 10 radios can add up.

    Again, it really depends on whether you are looking for a specific hero or not. Sometimes I only want HD, and I will focus on Alt Hero calls and just take 64 HD tokens even when I get 256 RGG. Those calls give you a bit more choice with your initial roll.

    But if you aren't picky (i.e., you are a newer player) and your options are good, then this is not a bad call.

    Like others said. This is a good call for value if most of the heroes are heroes you like.

    I have learned not to "dis" radio calls since they are "not up for discussion" with NG but I do agree that the guarenteed X2 heros call for 25 radios is the best call right now.

    NGs doesn't "have" to give us the x2 all heroes calls...

    They made the mistake (fortune for us) of dropping it once now we all say every other call is garbage.

    If they offered a x3 Alt hero call one special day... suddenly that would be the only "good" call and everything else garbage.

    They could simply just stop the 25 calls altogether, then suddenly calls like this one look much more appealing.

    I mean I hope they don't, but they could.

    The way they stopped the legendary radio event, and eventually brought back a week-watered-down version of the radio event?

    They could bring back a watered down version of alt-hero call... Like 20 radios, all heroes, but no x2?

    That would neeeeever happen right? Wrong...

    History had shown, if everyone bitches and gripes asking for the "one good thing".... Remember this please.

    It's much easier to Nerf the "one good thing" than it is to make everything else "a good thing".

    Not laughing too loud. I still remember, how hard we laughed about Eugene, when he arrived to the game :D

    NG doesn't "have" to give us 2021 Ezekiel tokens.

    Just posting the obvious since that is what you were apparently doing earlier with the 2x calls ;) 😇

    Can't agree more with you.
    Some calls are definitely not attractive at all but that's exactly how other calls such as 25 guaranteed hero calls look better.

    It's all about relative basis. I also think this 40 call rubbish but if I look at the bright side of it, I can save up more radios without being tempted.

    Even if all calls are too good, I can't afford anayway.

    I did the call with morgan in it twice the other day. 3 of the heros were about to level. All 3 of them did. The 4th hero had a 256 roll. Morgan (all traits recently finished with rerolls) has his first pink star now and it's helping me in the challenge immediately. He is retaliating, punishing, and dodging like an 80% dr champion studmuffin. Any ng metrics will miss my reasoning or success with those 2 calls.

    Most offers won't help most people most of the time. A few offers will help a lot of people a lot. The longer you hold out and wait, the more radios you'll have for that extra special deal. That's why i'll never understand the bitching.

    Constructive ideas for NG

    -offer periodic x2 guaranteed tokens on each roll, so we can select the occasional high roll, for lesser used heros. Make them 20 radio offers.

    -offer periodic x4 guaranteed tokens on each roll, so we can select the occasional high roll, for turdmuffins Ezekiel and Jerry. Make them 15 radio offers.

    -a few times this year continue to offer guaranteed 2x alt offers at 25 radios.

    -monster buff Ezekiel and Jerry and create a whole new wave of bitching about how there aren't anymore super offers for either. Kick your feet up on your piles of cash, sip a martini, and evil laugh with victory.

    I have good results with the 40-calls if the survivors are good. I never lock <256 until the last 2 rolls.

    Back in the olden days when I was all ranged and thought bruisers were useless, I thought Abe was pretty sweet!

    They love his picture in the offer. It's all about the moustache.

    Nothing more amazing than getting 3 straight 64 Sniper Morgan calls. FML.
