What's better than the regular amount of XP? DOUBLE XP!

They say that two heads are better than one, snake eyes come in pairs, and pizza's better when it's two-for-one. Now is the time to DOUBLE the trouble! Starting Friday October 11th at 10am PDT you'll receive XP at twice the speed!

Don't miss out because this is redonkulous and ends on October 15 at 10am PDT.

 

WHAT:

  • All XP earned is doubled!

WHEN:

Friday October 11th 10am PDT

TO

Tuesday October 15th 10am PDT

I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth since I need to level up my shiny new Atlas to the lineup, but, anyone else wondering what do we do with all the extra xp once we've maxed out all the levels?

Convert to GXP (for modules) using MC. That's the whole point of it.

But you wouldn't need to spend any MC to actually use your cbills. XP on your maxed variants, however, which you may (or may not) want to use on, just as an example (of course), well, your shiny new Phoenix Mechs scheduled for...uh... immediately after the doubeXP-event expires, well THAT would need to be converted to GXP first... unless, well, some might consider that hard earned XP useless otherwise...Not that I disapprove of the event, no, not at all. I mean, actually I'll try to gather the most XP I can make (you never know what you might use GXP for and f*** the MC, yeah!). It's just, I understand and approve why they're doing what they're doing :D

I'm not even sure I'd enjoy this double XP weekend. I'd have to actually decide what mech I'd like to grind.

I'd rather have more C-bills to grind for.

Technically, buying more C-Bill mechs might require a player to buy more mechbays to accommodate them, which are MC-only. :D

Convert it to GXP and unlock efficiencies with the less "favourable" variants.

Believe me that if you are looking to increase traffic/players online during the weekend, just double the C-Bills.

No rocket science behind this just common sense...

Thanks! Just bought more Premium Time, so I can increase my C-Bills before the Phoenix Release!! This will let me work on my GXP, so I can level up quicker! *wink* Keep it coming, PGI.

Does this mean that GXP (which is 5%(?) from gained XP) is also doubled?

It is their evil scheeme. Get as much xp as you can to convert into gxp to spend on mastering phoenix mechs faster.
I was already planning to do that so sounds good to me ^,^

That is the first thing that came to mind when I read the "Double XP Weekend". That is fine though, hopefully all the money will help get CW done sooner.

I appreciate it but x2 exp does not translate to x2 fun...

This is the right equation Niko:

x2 C-Bill * x1 My Fun + x1 Weekend = x2 FUN for EVERYONE :D

It is. It's the only sanctioned accelerator for modules that stacks with premium.

This is a good idea.

It motivates to buy new mechs you haven't used before and level them up - this can equate to MC purchase.

Smart wisdom would be to bank {Scrap} tons of xp for the next 1/2 off XP to GXP conversion which will, again, require MC.

It's actually a smarter, more subtle business decision. There is absolutely nothing wrong with PGI wanting paid for the product they create. There are different ways to go about that though and generally cosmetics (which have no in game impact) and indirect (giving you bonuses that may involve buying MC to get full advantage of) are the best. Hero mechs will always linger on the edge of P2W and are more likely to leave a bad taste in the mouth. The boars head engine max at 400 or the Ilya being the only mech capable of 3xAC10/UAC5/LB10X builds being examples.

Got no problem with this at all. Time to farm rage in my Spiders which are otherwise slow to get XP in.

Yeah, I'm pretty much exactly what most people hate in spider pilots.
