Just arg about CW events.

Wouldn't it make sense to put Novas (for C-bills and MC) at a discount while this happens?

I get selling mechpacks, but that does nothing for everyone else who doesn't have a Nova.

Hey guys, we'll be adding something for the IS as well shortly, so it's not only the Nova! We'll edit the post in a few moments!

I see you, PGI, trying to get me to use CHEATING CLAN TECH.

I SEE RIGHT THROUGH YOU AND I AIN'T FALLING FOR IT.

I will literally skip out on parts of the event, intentionally, to not use Clan mechs.

Just as well the Nova reward is next to useless, or the I.S would be pitch forks and burning brands outside Castle P.G.I

Nice! Faction Play events are always welcome Posted Image Also thanks for making the invasion challenge cumulative rather than per day - it's easier to do invasions over the weekend since they take a lot of time, while scouting can be done every day. Very thoughtful Posted Image

(Not sure about playing Novas in CW, though... Not exactly my go-to mech for these game modes. But let's see if I can make it work Posted Image)

I'm excited about a Nova event! I love these greatly under appreciated work horses and hopefully more will see what the mech has to offer.

I also appreciate the forethought in this and giving us a chance to knock out the long games at our convenience :)

1 50 MC
2 100 MC
3 150 MC
4 200 MC
5 250 MC
6 300 MC

that means you do 6 days worth of 4 matches each, you get a total of 1050MC's??? that's def worth it....

That is not cumulative.

Oops, I just noticed something: the event ends on November 15th at 6 PM UTC, AND you are expected to play 4 scouting matches on November 15th. Could you extend it until midnight UTC? For us Europeans, it means that we will barely have any time to play on the last day of the event after work...

Ok.. If you have an Event for Clans and a second for IS... Why don't you just post it in the same time... Instead of confusing players...

I'm so angry after seeing the rewards, its hard to stay calm enough to write this. Why are you guys offering the WC 2016 Supporter Standing Item and Warhorn items? They are for Tournament Supporter who payed a significant sum to gain them, as well as cbill bonus.

This was an exclusive reward. But now anyone can get it? I feel betrayed. Right now i definitely reconsider if i want to invest any amount of money with your black friday deals. I planned to spend 200 Dollar. But with this, i just dont think i can support this any longer.

This is a deal breaker.

Dont offer exclusive rewards for people who didnt qualify for them.

Simple enough. Just put a bounty on the Nova with the same rewards. Bring on the mayhem!

Why does something not seem right about having a Chassis-Specific Challenge here? Or for that matter, having a challenge that requires playing most of the days, as opposed to making it a cumulative? :blink:

I can't believe the WC 2016 Supporter Pack items are being GIVEN AWAY in an event. Those items were supposed to be reserved for those who actually paid to support the world championship teams.

Giving them away in this event belittles their value.

Wasn't it peanuts in $?

PS: Ahem... betrayal ..... I think you need to take a deep breath and step away for a while if you're that affected?
