So sick of getting robbed of an island haul because its rigged. I press left and my survivor goes right. I have to try to heal 3 freakin times before it actually starts healing. And I'm standing DIRECTLY in front of what I want to shoot, I see the three red arrows and.....nothing. Apparently I cant shoot at something with nothing in the way. Also, how is it that boosts and books do the OPPOSITE on the island. I have close to 50% damage vs infected....and they're 50% harder? Fix the freakin island Con. Its like you're the crooked casino owner that rigs all the games. Arrgghh.

What you are complaining about is most likely just lag and bugs.

The island is not "rigged". I've had none of those problems in the island (or even heard about them here), so it sounds more like a problem in your computer. Try clearing the cache in your browser and make sure that you have the latest version of Flash Player. It would be useful to know which browser are you playing on, and in what computer.

 

Failing that, Con can help you figure what's going on, as they have done in the past several times (check the Technical Support section), so don't jump to that "crooked casino owner" conclusion so quickly. They are overworked right now, but they will surely help.

 

Also, I'm curious: how do you get close to 50% damage vs infected? The highest Anatomy 101 book I've seen is 30%.

The island isn't rigged, some of us have been doing it for years. And guess what a lot of us found it really difficult at first, but practice makes perfect, and I can breeze through every variant level like the wind now. A bit like the Terror Dome. I deliberately left my frustrated posts complaining that was impossible so others might see where I might have been going wrong. I cracked it, and unless I take my eye off the ball, cruise past 6000 points.

 

You'll find the same with the island. Just a learning curve. You'll figure it in the end :)

The island isn't rigged

 but the boxes and the rewards are rigged,it's made to give us the right feeling to be rewarded and the next thing we'll get is shit rather than those really sweet reward and try it over and over again to expect that same reward coming back again

 

 

P.S.:it's Psychology(but I don't wanna explain why cause this reply is gonna be longer than the people expected it to be,just search the whole damn thing,here's the link:https://en.wikipedia...i/Reward_system)

 

 

and don't expect me to use BB codes to highlight some of my statement/words(like that "Psychology" word),I don't fucking know how to use them yet(can somebody provide me a link for it?)

I don't get how that would make the rewards "rigged". Obviously, the rewards can't always be good (and in all fairness, even giving a 100% chance to get a unique is excessive in my opinion).

My interpretation: "I have close to 50% dmg dealt from infected. How are they 50% harder?"

From the challenge book, it's easy to see how considering the anatomy give 30% maxed. Just my guess on a player misreading their book effects, hence the 'opposite' effect on the island.

Second, it is going to be difficult on the very first few runs, especially when leaders barely hit lvl 50 and the other survivors are barely catching up.

Island is NOT rigged, I can say for sure.

 

when I started, I lost almost every game. It took me some time of leveling up and collecting good unis before I even passed with a reward.

 

It is a matter of practice and getting better gear over time.


-------------------

 

What you describe is severe lag. it can happen to anyone.

 

also, the Anatomy 101 is supposed to make your survivors do more damage to the zombies not the other way around.

Indeed. The question here is that the OP may be confusing "Infected damage" with "Damage vs Infected", since he claims to have the opposite effect.

:o That kills everything, ever.

 

That fits more the "rigged" part (except it's most likely a bug instead of a deliberate act)

Why are you so sure? Because bugs can happen if that was meant to be Uni Island haul...

There was a thread about glitched hauls out there. I don't think they're all photoshopped, it's definitely possible for them to be legitimate bugs.

Was talking to someone in tradechat and the exact same thing happened to them, and just a couple of days ago I also got a screwed up uni haul, I did at least get my uni but there were only 2 items in the haul.
