    Whilst 3 tickets for LS is too much for me personally, I can't help but agree. Of the two scores I've put up so far this week one of them is significantly lower than the other so it would help to get a 4th 'do-over'. Perhaps you could set it for Mon/Tues/Wed/Fri.

    Or just base it off your single highest score out of the 3 🤷🏻‍♂️ 
    So you have 3 chances to get a high score. 
    Simple and easy to understand.

    On one hand yeah, gripes make sense.

    On the other hand, everyone has the same 3 chances with no practice sooo... 
    (if you want to spend gold to have a practice run, shouldn't you that give you slight advantage?) 

    I honestly am just fine with it this way.

    @Firekid now that i 100% agree with. I have Mondays off work and right now there's nothing really going on in game on Mondays

    Can’t you just give us 3 tickets a week which refresh on a Monday? Let us chose when to play. Really don’t understand why we are being limited to when we can play? Want to do all 3 on Monday to get them done, or maybe you want something to do on Sunday when you’ve finished the challenge, guild wars and distance? 
    3 or 4 a week given on a Monday and let us play when we want. 
    They've got to bump that DAU figure for the shareholders somehow :trollface:

    Let me perhaps explain my scenario.

    I'm getting there, I manage top 1% - 2% typically. But I'll scout videos watching people use SPY to crush it, while my flavor doesn't do enough damage to keep the multiplier up (though, the flaming cripple pistol might change things).

    My best, consistent team is Rick, Sasha, Jesus or Morgan. And it seems to me that there are better last stand teams and strategies out there, that perhaps I can advance to. 

    I want at least one game a week where I can try a different team, or at least a tweaked version of my current -- and this current system is going to keep me trotting out my #1 most consistent team ALL THE TIME.

    I didn't like losing tickets, because it's slowing my progression back down. And I certainly don't like losing the ability to experiment.

    I have dropped a suggestion for this, hopefully it gets picked up. It's a good one I think.

    I use SMY it is what it is. If I clear top 100 cool, if I don't cool...... 😆

    I think 4 tickets, with 3 best scores counted, would be the best solution. Then you could experiment with 2 different teams instead of reverting to your default team each time.

    Expert mode must be in beta also since right now it states "unlocks at council level 26" and I'm already at CL 28. It's locked by the way.

    @Lexia I apologize if you have answered this already but is there a reason this is still locked?

    I recommend keeping an eye on the thread here with reported bugs and update on them - Last Stand Expert mode being locked for some who are on council level 26 or higher is a bug that we are currently looking into :smile:

    "Expert mode features all regular survivors, and a pool of 10 random Heroes from which you need to choose your team members. The randomized pool of Heroes is the same for all players, and refreshes weekly."

    As has been mentioned in a different thread, the pool of Heroes is randomized and is different for all players as it stands currently. Tough to compete with someone who has Sasha, Mercer/Princess, and Yumiko when I don't have them available.

    Exactly this. How is this "fair play" when people are gaining an advantage with the 5x modifier with the overpowered heros playing in expert mode vs people having to play the regular mode for lower scores?

    Thank you for reporting!

    I've shared to the team for a closer look. Will update when I know more

    Don't play the really boring and tedious game mode 😂

    Can I also add the rewards don't seem that much better in Expert mode. I got 2 Sniper Morgan tokens as a reward  :|

    2 of these images are from my LS expert and the other 2 are from a friend of the guild. the question is how can a mode with limited characters be fair given that these characters are different for each player? then in the same rank will have people who were lucky enough to receive beta, rick, eugene or even SPY, while other players receive Ezekiel, Jarry, Beth, Dwight among other unfeasible characters. I think that to have a fair rank in expert mode all players must receive the same selection of characters, and if possible open 2 ranks, one in normal mode and the other in expert mode, where when choosing the difficulty in the first ticket he should play the week whole in the same difficulty.

    Next week hopefully will be fine but I won't be able to unlock Carol's cookies at the end of the current cycle because of the bug.

    So according to this I am missing some rewards... Tues Dec 14th I played expert mode, on We'd Dec 15th I played regular with the same team I used on expert (just to see the difference in my score). If the minimum amount of hero tokens given out in Expert mode is 8, then I should have at least 8 Sniper Morgan, Carol, Maggie and Michonne tokens.

    @Lexia maybe check that the rewards are given correctly? Getting so few hero tokens on expert should not be possible?
