Today we’re here to bring a sincere list directly to the attention of you, Scopely. This list is created by the community of The Walking Dead: Road to Survival. We are players of all classes - from free to play to various levels of spenders - and we are standing together to plead for positive changes to the game and to you specifically, Scopely, as our concerns and issues continue to rise.
We have had a lot of changes to the game since a thread like this last arose. Some things were addressed, some weren’t and new issues have come to light. This is why this is so important to us.
- Critical issue #1
There are a number of critical issues for players at the moment and one of the biggest ones is the bottleneck on gear. As the rate of S classes grow, many are experiencing issues obtaining gear to level said toons.
- Critical issue #2
Another critical issues is how region transfers are being handled. Players both want and deserve the right to travel between regions of their choosing, like before.
- Critical issue #3
And lastly on the critical list is the lackluster rewards. The incentive to fight has been lost to many players as they don’t feel the rewards justify the effort. Rewards should be fun and/or enticing and these are not.
The following list below has been compiled by the community. This list is of our concerns, needs and wants along with a list of recommendations as well.
- Ascendance medals shortage
Both silver and gold Ascendance medals are in high demand. This demand increases daily with the growing rate of S classes.
- Scavenger camp missions
This is extremely outdated and in need of an update or overhaul. Using these as a possible way to get ascendance medals would be great as well.
- Gear marker depot
Gear marker depot should be revisited. Gear has become extremely bottlenecked with the introduction of S class as mentioned above. We could use better additional gear here like 6* gear, a revisit on prices and possibly how many can be purchased.
- Gear roadmaps
Bring back specific gear farmable maps for 4 star and 5 star gear. Also it is time a 6* gear map is brought to the game.
- Daily roadmaps
Some daily roadmaps like food, material and ascendancy roadmaps.
- Prestige rewards
Prestige rewards have become extremely outdated; it’s not useful to growing players.
- Faction weekly missions
We would like to see these added back into the game.
- Faction tournament brackets
1st, 2nd and 3rd place brackets should remain the same, the rest of the following brackets need to be revisited with a better tiered reward structure. More than 1st and 2nd should receive a collection box.
- Faction tournament rewards
Faction rewards should be more appealing to encourage group play. The collection boxes given should be a choice collection box and be as up to date with collections as current velvet cake boxes.
- Solo tournament brackets
1st, 2nd, and 3rd should be separated. Brackets beyond that should be revisited with a better tiered structure for rewards.
- Solo tournament rewards
The collection box given for solo tournaments should be a choice collection box and as up to date with the collections as current velvet cake boxes. More brackets should receive collection rewards.
- Tournament equalization
1st Solo level up gives 2000 collectibles.
1st Survival road only gives 1000 collectibles.
It should give 2000 the same as solo level up.
- Monthly Daily login rewards/event
Something that starts at the beginning of a month and ends at the end of the month.
- Seasonal Events
We would like season events to be more meaningful and rewarding. Halloween event wheel was very disappointing with trainers.
We would love to see more fun engaging events like the Pathways event that brought both solo and faction engagement.
- Territory Events
Territory Events should utilize all 10 territory zones for special events (Velvet cake example) so that more factions can benefit from these special events.
- Roster blockage
Players rosters have been beyond blocked by double and nearly triple the number of the current average roster cap.
- Training grounds
Training grounds needs to be revamped. 2s are barely leveling 6s let alone S class now.
- Town Hall and buildings
- Town size
- Greater communication
We would like more active communication from Scopely to the community. Possibly a Q/A thread ran to answer daily questions and issues which may help to clear up threads on these issues.
- In-game information
We would like a way to be provided valuable information in-game directly to players without the hassle and search of other platforms for critical information and updates.
- Functional development
We know bugs and mistakes happen. But far too many have been happening recently. 5 major issues over 10 days that had an impact on players experience, Many of which aren’t addressed properly leading to further communication issue.
[Edited in suggestions/feedback by popular request]
this is a living document that is subject to changes and edits based on feedback from the community
- War depot
This would be a new featured depot to use the new permanent War Tokens. You would be able to use these tokens aside from the War wheel for various useful war related items like war cans, mods, 6* gear, trainers and choice box collectibles. This is a great alternative to those not needing what is in the war wheel.
- War crates
The community would like the 20 blues keys to be switched to support multiple S class collections beyond just limited to S class Pete.
- League Tokens
Another solution to help the gear crisis would be to increase the amount of league tokens received from leagues and milestones.
- Red velvet cake collection
We would like more free to play friendly options for red velvet cake collections in the museum.
- S class collectibles
All S class items should be available to all players at any time. Not by Scopely selection.
- 6star wheel
6star tokens for a 6star wheel. The number of S class characters is growing, but players still need a way to catch up and be able to compete.
It’s our duty as players to speak up if we want change. We ask that you, Scopely, listen to and address these concerns, as well as, further suggestions that players may make in this thread.
We are passionate. We are reasonable. We do love this game and we want to work with you to make a better game for both of us, the community and your company. We wish to work with you so that the game can thrive, and that benefits both us.
We wish to be respected and heard as well as responded to so our issues and concerns can be addressed and discussed.
Sincerely, The community.
