Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Motivation?
A: Motivation is determining how much HP (Health points) your survivors will get with each level up. This number can be an integer or end with 0.5. If it’s x.5 in the end, for example, 10.5 -> it means once you level up your survivor, from level 1 to 2, it will gain +10 HP. The next time you level up your survivor, from level 2 to level 3, it will gain +11 HP.

Q: Can a survivor’s Motivation change as time goes on?
A: Long story short: No. Your survivor’s motivation is fixed as time goes on. It might change in the future though.

Q: How can I tell whether my survivor has high Motivation?
A: Motivation can be 1, or even 25. The higher the motivation, the better! If your survivor’s motivation is between 1 and 9.5, it’s a low motivation. Your survivor’s motivation is good if it’s between 10 and 16.5. Everything above 16.5 is high, and over 21 it’s excellent.
