F2P LeaderBoards


NG, Its posible to have a F2P global and country LeaderBoards ?

I know it's a lot of work but you should have all the microtransactions saved so a separate list could be made. I think you could include people who have spent less than 5-10 dollars since the game started. F2P also like to compete!!!

    This is kind of silly. If you think it will only take $10+ to be able to compete on the leader boards, then that doesn't seem like a huge investment.

    Also spending money doesn't necessarily give a strategic advantage. It will depend on what they spend the money on. Imagine these scenarios:

    1) If someone spent $20 on the game two years ago, but the weapons they bought are now obsolete thanks to free weapons earned during campaigns and Guild Wars, do they still have an advantage over F2P players?

    2) Let's say a new player joins the game and spends money just to upgrade their camp so they can play at max level. Do they really have an advantage over F2P players that have been playing the game for years and reached max level by grinding?

    3) Someone works during the week and doesn't have time to collect free gas or start the challenge early. So they buy a gas booster for the weekend. Do they really have any strategical advantage over F2P players who play throughout the week?

    4) I purchase a gold bundle and spend it all on the costumes, and then I force my survivors to wear Rosita's outfit while I make them spin and whisper to them "my preciousss..."

    I do admit, it would be kind of interesting  to see the results if your final challenge score was something like Stars - (Healing Gold/2). However, a separate leaderboard is kind of impractical and unnecessary.

    thank you for your comments @ShadowWalker then more easy, 0 spending.

    1.- Correct, I agree, now they are obsolete but not at the time, so it had an advantage in the past.
    2.- Advantage over those who start from the same time.
    3.-They have an advantage and enough. It is proven that with full or 24H gas in 4-6 hours you can make 2000 stars. If you have saved 100-150 gas you can do 1000-1500 stars
    4.- waste of money !!!!!

    I don’t think NG would want to showcase the F2P side of this. They want people to spend money, to support the game and having F2P leaderboards would go against this. Those people near the top of that leaderboard who normally wouldn’t know how well they were doing could be persuaded by the right bundle to spend a bit of cash to get increase their score. They probably wouldn’t do that if they knew they were top of the F2P leaderboard.

    Thanks @Firekid for your comment

    I don't know if NG will show F2P score or not so this post, I want to try. I am a player who has spent money in the game and I see that players in my clan earn fewer stars because they are not motivated, they do not have anyone to compete with because they do not know who is spending or not spending money in the game.

    Returning to the subject that concerns us, an F2P player should not spend money no matter how high he is in the ranking, precisely because his philosophy is not to spend money. 

    Honestly looking at the current scores, I highly doubt that an F2P is in the top 20 in the home country. Why? Simply because it will not have gasoline to make them.

    The game at the beginning, only fed on advertising, then the weapons came to buy and only this already made a difference of 200-500 stars at least between the P2W and the F2P.

    Good! I already have a JSS a couple of disagrees and a couple of LOL. Perfect, we are already beginning to see players who are portraying themselves ... thanks, but that's not the goal!
    it is impressive, the refusal of some players about a score list dedicated to F2P. I do not know why would that be ....
    The question is sent to NG not to you ...

    It's been mentioned a few times that NG have limited staff and resources so when they make a decision to work on something they have to weigh up a few things. Mainly how much time and resources it will cost them vs the profit and impact it will make. Whilst a F2P leaderboard would be interesting I just can't see it having much of an impact on the game and it certainly won't make them any money. 

    What I do is see how far I can finish on the main leaderboard without spending gold vs players who might be spending. But as @ShadowWalker points out, there are layers to F2P/P2P. For instance, I might play the game 99% without spending gold but I do that using an arsenal of weapons I paid money for :lol:

    i dont think NG will do that. they need to earn money too. spending time on something that dont convert to possible income is not what business is. i think most of NG activities is on make players spend gold. the black market is good example.

    yes, game is free and i like that way. no need board. that is just my opinion.

    It's great that you bring suggestions, but you also have to understand this is not a charity - NG needs to make money out of the game.

    That said, you can't expect them to invest staff time and resources into something that will not bring them any income.

    Also, the line between f2p (free to play) and c2p (cheap to play) is very subjective.

    One thing I think NG should add to the leaderboards is a category for your player level. I doubt someone with lv 20 survivors cares that much about what the top players are scoring. In relation to their score anyway.

    I have been playing for just under 4 years, 100% F2P and proud of it. How about a check in thread where NG can confirm the fact and show how many of us that there are? I have my doubts about players that claim to be 100% F2P.

    While I understand the sentiment, there’s no way NG will go out of their way to cater to the F2P crowd. They cater more towards the paying crowd since that’s who keeps them in business. Call to Arms and Black Market have already bridged the gap and blurred the lines for gold-hoarders. While I’d love to see more stats, NG has never prioritized that or shown much willingness to go there.

    I have played since the game came out I am a fan of TWD comics and I stopped watching the series ... I am a F2P player, although being realistic some packages have tempted me (chainsaw for example). At the beginning, the game is full of advertising ... now people buy or not! maybe a F2P list is a lot of work, could just put the name of F2P in green.

    @Mojaku Excellent idea! That may be something that NG could easily implement. Hope that @Fluxxx gets to see this post. Thanks!

    Urgh, I really shouldn’t start this argument, but.... you’ve played this game, probably daily, and you’ve never spent anything on it. And your proud? I mean well done and all, but not supporting something you’ve had so much time and enjoyment out of isn’t that just, I don’t know, selfish? I assume you pay for things like tv steaming sites, music, other computer games? If you go to a museum or something and the entry fee is voluntary do you not pay anything? 

    I mean it’s your choice to keep playing free I just think maybe you could give something back to show your appreciation to the people who have worked hard over the last 4 years to make the game what it is and for it to still be going? 

    Damn I shouldn’t come on the forum when I’m drunk.

    I donated more than enough to Next Games for these guys to play for free if they choose. I appreciate their dedication even though a degen like me couldn't pull it off. 🤣

    Good Morning!
    One day without entering the post, there was movement !!! I see comments of all kinds! I keep seeing JSS in my comments ... I see resentment hahahaha luckily the voting is clearly visible. Here a proposal has been made to NG ...

    F2P players do not enter into provocations, they do it very regularly,  when they dont like or affect the topic.  They want to discuss and NG closes the post without reply. If they don't want an F2P list it is for any reason, put JSS or disagree in their comments.

    Note: It is not the first time they put the same or similar
    "Damn I shouldn't come on the forum when I'm drunk”. or "I really shouldn't start this argument, but ...."
    They do not put a name for anyone to take for granted

    I don't get why F2P players always feel the need, to tell everyone they are. Cool buddy, I guess that’s up to each of you, it doesn’t make you any better.

    F2P should be grateful to NG as they made this game possible even if you are a 100% F2P. In some other games out there, a P2P can just pay and buy an army to smash the F2P. Obviously the nearest smashing of F2P can get here is during GW but again NG is smart enough the put tier so after the first war / week, the tier kicks in.

    This community is the best and plenty of fantastic people here. If NG don't make money, this game will end and everyone in this community will lose contact with each other.

    Does a F2P needs a leaderboard to see who is the cheapest cheapskate of all? No please. Just enjoy the game whether you are a F2P / C2P / P2P

    By the way, I am one of the cheapskate 100% F2P and I know there are a few F2P in local top 20 or even global top 100. Obviously everyone have their own reason to be F2P or C2P but NG manage to cater for whichever categories you choose to be.

    Please stop using the thread to generate discussion and cause its closure. 

    The comics have already ended, the tv show ends in 2021. How long do you think the game has left to live? 1 year? 2 years? The company must pay image rights, royalties etc ...

    Hopefully the game lasts a long time but have to be realistic....

    Omg who cares about who pays or not. I’m F2P prove me wrong! 

    Exactly you can’t you can only assume I’ve P2P cause I’ve admitted it and argued bundles.

    Paying doesn’t make you better at strategy or knowledge. This argument is so old and so boring. Reality is it don’t matter if you are F2P or if you pay.
