Double XP is now LIVE! Want to get that favourite Mech of yours through elite, or just purchased a new Mech and want to build it up fast? Now is the time!

Cheers,

Played a few games and got as much as 3000 or so per match in XP. Not bad. :)

Looking forward to when there will be a double c-bill promotion. :)

Only the premade team can really benefit from this. They win and We lose 10 out of 10 games and we get just a little xp. Would you fix it so that premade team vs another premade team?

DistantThunder is pretty much right on the bullseye with this. I am seeing barely a few hundred xp per match with this DOUBLE XP thing going on. Frustratingly little XP when you are forced to fight as a PUG match after match.

I benefit from this event too. 5,3 wins out of 10 games as a pure pugger.

Double xp.... xp wasn't all that hard to obtain, I would've rather had 1.5x Cbill day or something to boost C-bills.

So what I see is new puggers coming in and trying things out or old puggers using new builds, vs. teams rolling them with Heroes they've obviously leveled up long ago. It's shooting fish in a barrel.

Not sure how people are not gaining much experience? I just finished the highest experience game I've ever played (I have over 1100 games since the last reset) and made 4,145 XP (6 kills, 1,171 damage, 201k c-bills, in my catapult with 6 x SRM6). :)

I am willing to bet you have paid for MC and Premium status.

XP isn't hard to come by... We needed free mech bays, cheaper mech bays or a massive MC discount.

I really loathe how you can't get veteran upgrades until you have all the versions of a mech... Which means buying tons of mech bays. Selling your old mechs is a painful travesty even if they gave you a fair value for them, which is certainly not the case - you want an archive of different builds to do and re do over and over.

should just keep it this way!! :D it makes it really fun to play/win. i dont feel a exp grind at all. im getting exp and selling mechs and testing it all. i feel so free to buy and sell mechs because the time investment to elite is not as demanding.

why is this important? if i grind less (getting to elite or masters), it allows me to play the mech of my choice sooner. i am not bored with many many games of a undesirable mech.

i agree with this. due to the current mech bay system, i have forced myself to sell mechs. i personally would of loved to keep them all even if i didnt like some.

QFT.

XP are very useless. The little bit extra to the GXP are not worth playing this so called "event". 1,5x to 2,0x C-Bills would have been much better. What do i do with the 100k XP on some of my variants?

Just think of what PGI/IGP would expect you to do...

If they expect me to buy more mechs or mechbays with real money when i already have 23 Mechs and 33 Bays... That wont happen. I wont buy anything besides the two missing hunchbacks to my trio. With C-Bills. I will spend money for MC at the day the Netcode is fixed, not one day earlier.
