    Fireman and Pilot

    Faster Energy and Stamina regeneration (than their level 100 contemporaries).

    Once the firefighter's job was to extinguish fires, now he strives to burn the zombie hordes from the earth.

    Although she once flew high above the world, the Pilot has returned to earth to cleanse it of the zombie menace.

    Convict and Construction Worker

    Faster Energy and Cash regeneration (than their level 100 contemporaries).

    Once the Convict was shunned by society. Now he may be its only hope.

    Once she helped to build things, now the Construction Worker's specialty is destroying them.

    Computer Tech and Artist

    Faster Stamina and Cash regeneration (than their level 100 contemporaries).

    Once he hacked into the world's most heavily secured computer systems, now the Computer Tech hacks apart zombies.

    Where she once found her passion in creation, today the Artist finds joy only in destruction.

    If we were to purchase one of these, could we switch between it and our previous character at will?

    Like if I was to buy the convict (shorter money/energy regeneration) I could continue using my butcher character throughout the day whilst im playing then switch to the convict when not playing to generate money and energy in my absence?

    That's a good question but why do you want that.
    O Ic you want to switch stamina for arena or faction wars. And when this is over you switch back to energy to gain faster lvl?

    Well..I've not really invested too much in energy, so the quicker it regenerates the better, but...I prefer the pvp side to the game so whilst playing I'd like to be using the butcher for the lower stamina regeneration lol

    as far as I know you cannot keep your old one and switch back and forth. I could be wrong

    Yeah I'm not sure either, I know they want 15un if I want to revert back to my old pro athlete character, lol I don't to...but I checked to see if I could.

    the question has been asked numerous times and Kano has said they were thinking about it. In the meantime Kano keeps adding new characters to all the games without answering the question. New higher level characters are suppose to be released but we dont know when....how are we to know if is a waste to spend 175 FP/UN on a new character when a new and improved one might be put out tomorrow?

    We're not going to be releasing the next round of characters for any of the games for a while and before we do that we're going to try and spec out a character swap function.

    I did buy into this feature. THe old character i bought from the last time, poofed as if it had never existed. The items i had received from our first upgrade are not even used when i fight because the items i buy with my UN are significantly better then the old items. None of the old items are even used in my top squad. So the first time we upgraded it was 20.00 and now kano is asking us to spend 30.00 for the new feature. Ive now invested 50.00 into this. If this was my first time buying this, yes charge me the full 30.00, thats fine. The features are nice, the gear is well...ok (but defiantly not my best gear).

    It seems to me (this is my own humble opinion) that you folks are being a tad bit greedy. Why not give those that bought the old characters a discount, say 100 UN instead of the full 175? Its bad enough that every time i want to buy a single UN item to upgrade my character im spending anywhere from 30UN to 36UN, thats well over 5.00 an item which is alot considering my top squad needs items too. And then we an extra hired every 150 levels. Faction wars costs me 36un alone every time you folks host a new one. All this stuff adds up to be alot of money folks.

    I love this game, and I do not mind spending my hard earned money on this game to make sure it runs smoother, but if your prices keep raising like this there will be a point where your paying customers will be fed up and stop paying/playing it. Entertainment should not be the price it costs to lease a car. Please be fair when adding more features in the future, thank you.

    Ps I do look really sexy in my new outfit. Hopefully now my boyfriend will stop calling me the pizza cutter guy.

    This really turning out to be a lousy day here in the forums. So basically the high levels and Kanos most dedicated are being put on hold again. Thats just greaaaaat. The new characters should have been released in reverse order from the highest of levels back in order to have the least amount of negative impact. The lower levels will already have longer to benefit and more levels to gain that will provide additional benefit. I really dont understand why Kano always puts their most loyal of customers last....Im sorry but I just find it absolutely sickening.

    We're rethinking the release orders of the characters as well. It's been a few years since we released the last set of characters so we're kind of rusty. Lessons learned from this round of releases will be applied to the next ones.

    I appreciate your honesty mitch. It's really not too late to change it if you guys are willing. Add an upgrade option for 100 un, and those that have already upgraded reimburse us 75 un. I think so far I am the only one that has upgraded the feature on the FB side. I have faith you guys will find a way to make the changes more fair. Maybe on the next round, when you upgrade it, you can add a new unique feature instead of just upgrading the current old ones. Like maybe a destructible that doesn't go away after one use (something permanent) , that would be kinda cool. Thanks for listening. Have a good day.

    Oh btw, I was also hearing mitch's argument about how those regen timers will make a big difference for us over time. We calculated it. It's only 32 stamina difference a day. If i hit a boss at my max experience, and get lucky, ill see 3200 exp from 30 stam. That is the most exp i can get from 1 boss. I get 4462 exp off per launcher help. Do you see my point and frustration?

    I was thinking maybe in the future you could also have a level 2k+ requirement, a level 3k+ requirement, and maybe even a 4k+ requirement with a much quicker regen time so that the upgrade is scaled better at higher levels. I guess 32 stamina a day would be alot to a level 100, but it isn't anything to brag about, and is most certainly not a significant difference over time like mitch claims (sorry mitch im honestly not trying to pick on you sweetie) at our level, you know? Give us something to look forward to. Give us a feature that's worth buying, that's not at a cost so high that the average person can not afford it. Give us hope. :) TY

    what kano has failed to see....is that it is quite useless for anyone over level 3000 to purchase a new character
    why on earth would i need faster nergy regen? my outbreaks are finished
    why would i need quicker stam regen? they have relegated stamina quite obsolete
    why would i need quicker cash? i have 300 trillion in cash on hand

    what would these characters do for me other than level me out of anyones fight range a tad quicker?

    Changing form a butcher to a fireman gives an extra 53 energy/day and an extra 31 stamina/day.
    Usually when I Lvlup, I have more stamina and energy than this unused, which is going to waste, because at lvlUp only refills and is not going over my max energy and stamina.
    While at LvlUp we get 1000 stamina and up to 4600 energy, and with all of the daily boosts, thats hardly makes any difference.

    While on the other games there where extra perks like:
    +3% more Cash in Jobs,
    -1% on Bank Deposit Fee,
    -1% on Job Energy requirement,
    +0.25% power boost while Attacking and Defending

    here kano left the only ones that make no difference at all in this game.

    Even the weapons are weaker then my last ones, except the vehicle.

    175UNs to change my characters picture?
