Supply caches and keys. Clever. I like it.

Just wish I could leaderboard, but solo parenting means no way. :(

Thanks for the event. I will rake in a few of the personal goals awards. I may wait for a double XP event to level the Vipers though.

How do you like keys sale as a substitute to a mechbay or module sale?

Open one, sell the other, the RNG is about on par with other "lockbox" games (e.g. pretty lousy). I spent 50 MC to open two caches yesterday, because I was curious and ended up with one Dog Tag cockpit item (not terribly bad) and one IS LRM20.

Thanks for the event.

Understand why there are keys and random boxes this time around... Hoping that the future events will continue having warhorns and cockpit items... And MC as rewards as well. :)

Early Review, 2016 July "Viper Leaderboard and Personal Challenge Event" ---

Well, everyone, here I am again to review another event. I've looked at the time requirements, and the listed rewards, and then at the thread so far. Sadly, the Personal Challenge is once again rather lacking in terms of Player Activity Retention, and the LeaderBoard too bloodthirsty for most Mech Pilots. I'll be playing through, but somebody above called it in terms of needing at least a minor reward alongside everything listed there. PGI, if you want to make this type of event as close to perfect as possible, please add a "25 Components Destroyed = 25 Reward" to the event, triple the required "KMDD" while doubling the " reward" to "300K ", double the required "Kill Assists" while changing that reward to an "x8 Consumable Pack", and keep the Allowed Time Limit the same as you have it now. Those are admittedly slightly tougher numbers, but for the time limit of 7 days it would fit better. This is really all I would ask, but that's what it would take to make it perfect in my opinion, as I personally feel that would counter the decrease in rate of creation of matches, which has been a longstanding issue with any improperly-built event so far. :huh:

Two points:

- It would be nice for the personal challenge to have an MC reward component.

- It will be very interesting to see how the Viper leader boards compare to the PXH leader boards.

The personal challenge seems more like a one night event not a 7 day event. It could stand to have higher requirements and a bit more reward.

Yeah.... I've reached 5 of the 7 goals now... hours later and still nothing for a pop up telling me I received the rewards. Not sure if the pop up isn't just showing up or what but I'll find out soon because I don't have any keys yet and I'm 200 match points from earning it. If it pasts and hour and I don't have it in my inventory then we're getting jipped for sure.

Correction: I finished the challenge to get 2 supply crates. I only had one from earlier in the day that I won and even though it has been over an hour since then; I still only have the 1 from earlier in the day, not the 2 new ones I should have received from the reward table. I logged out and back in and still nothing. PGI, you done goofed up again...

My two opened so far were an LPL and a 250k cbill.

So more or less confirmed, no more MC for prizes for the general public. Yeah, keep improving your image with the community PGI, you're doing great.
