The first and most glaring problem with any iteration of survival road is the energy system. 8pts @ 15m regen is basically idiocy. Absolutely none of us want to play this game at a minimum of every 2hrs at any given time, yet this current system FORCES us to, completely against our will. If we do not, then we either have to open our wallets (we won’t) or accept a lower score that was out of our control.
Solutions are numerous, simple, easily implemented fixes. Update scavenge missions to payout survival refills, or put SR cans in the supply depot rotation just like raid/world energy. Or modify the energy gauge itself to have a maximum of 20 energy at the very minimum, which would allow 5 hours of being away from the game.
Next, 125 stages is asinine. It’s not even 125, actually more like 200/250+ if you factor in the numerous 2/3 wave stages. Solution for this is to either REMOVE bronze & silver categories as absolutely NOBODY enjoys playing those or has any issue completing them. The only players those stages would challenge are unable to play SR anyway due to player level requirements locking them out. Either remove bronze/silver or make all stages max of 2 waves (for walker + human stages) instead of 3, as it’s just tedious at that point.
These are the most major issues that need to be dealt with. Other minor annoyances would be to adjust the reflect damage to something like 10% or max 20% on stages that have you deal with that challenge, as nobody wants to make a team out of their 1* fodder to complete a stage. They’d much rather use their preferred characters so they can build a stock of loaded AR charges for later challenges. If I get screwed over by a reflect attack from killing a walker (which is dumb af, btw… how is a walker going to inflict that dmg? Did my bullet ricochet perfectly off of it’s dental implants and hit me in the eye?) and lose a 5* or 6* character I am NOT going to use a drug kit. They are just going to stay dead. So trying to squeeze cash out of that sneaky gameplay element is a failed effort.
Anyone else in agreement or wanting to add something, please do so. Let’s make sure this gets “taken to the derp team” please.
