Not sure about a specific task on a specific day... well at least I can select the reward I hope for by playing on that specific day, IF I CAN.

edit: not sure I get it in fact, if I skip the firsts 4 days then play on 5th day, am I at 1st day of 5th?

edit 2: ok just passed cursor over 1st Day, 2nd Day etc and I see how it works so I was right.

Ok, the picture made me laugh. Well done.

Is there a grand prize for all the good little mechwarriors that make it through all 12 days of mechmas?

Great pic.

um... the days, how does that work? Is it 1st day = 1st day of the event; therefore I can wait till a day that has a reward I want and play that day, doing that day's event? (I.E. I may only want Dy 11's MC, so I log on on the 24th, play, get MC)

Or is it 1st day = first day of the event I play (I.E. I log on on the 15th, play, and get 1st day checked off, must wait till the 16th to get 2nd day).

Or is it Days don't matter, do as you can, (I.E. I log in on the 15th, do all the things, get all the stuff).

??

Also, thanks for the stuff.

Great splash image!

I'm probably not the only one who's less than thrilled about the structure of the 12 days event. I'm sure there will be people more than willing to go on at length about it...

The loot bag event looks good!
(Needs more warhorns though. Always.)
(And no paint? Come on. Who doesn't like paint?)

Daily Events are individual events.
you just have to do that challenge that day!
You don't have to do all the days. just the ones that you want to earn the reward

Thanks Matt, I had a feeling it was that way.

So, if you get a chance to play, you have a chance at the reward for that day. I may be able to get online 6 of the 12, but hey, I will get an extra loot when I do.

Thanks for not adding a complete reward, my OCD and my wife hate it :-)

Those parts with new QP maps in invasion will be tough for IS side. Because you have about 1-2 hours to play it and additionally you need a win... IS pilots have to be VERY lucky with those.

I'll do the usual:

Play as normal, reap rewards that seem to randomly get injected into my account, and look down upon the crybabies who say the event ruined the weekend for them by forcing them to change their playstyle.

Hmm... compared to the last events (and especially the one with the free Grid Iron) i expected a bit more from christmas.
There are too much cockpit items (not even warhorns) in the 12 day part for my taste. I don't need any of these and would rather have some paint colors, mc or some more cbills.

Maybe next time switch the order of events so that the cool ones with free premium mechs come at the end of the year...

But i still have hope that at least new year's eve brings a more interesting event. In this case you can ignore my above lines. Posted Image

Great little low pressure event. I will be traveling for much of it but I will do what I can when I get back home in a week or so. Thanks for the continued fun and free stuff.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to the staff of PGI and all my fellow MechWarriors!

I shall complete all these in my shiny new MAD-IIC to celebrate. Free stuff is always appreciated, even if it's little trinkets.
