Can we hear them all? Just in case one sound as bad as Envious Eardrum.

P.S. Can you delete all 3 Envious Eardrum from my account btw? When I browse with the "Owned" filter I don't want those to show up. Could be a good idea to let us remove such items from account.

I'm really impressed with a lot of the recent events. I can't always participate because I don't play Faction Play or have Big Mechs but I appreciate the well-rounded nature of the events in general - and an event-specific warhorn is a nice improvement. Well done! Let me know when the Mist Lynx-specific Events are planned though... ;)

Many players might be going Clan for this event. New Mechs and all.

Good thing I have no current contracts! Looking forward to seeing what I can do with these new Clan Hero thingies, and then play more IS stuff in a week from now...

Very awesome, it's almost like you guys are testing out different options for what could become dailies like HoTS... *wink, wink*

Now I understand the goal of playing =) I adore warhorns. P.S. today I decided to rest from the game some time. Seems I was wrong.

This is awesome! Might have time to get, at least the Black and camo warhorn, the retro and yellow need some more effort. Not sure if Im gonna go for the FW yet. Still, might be fun.

Achieve the 'Protected Medium' reward at least once in a Match. (requires playing Heavy or Assault class Mech)


Achieve the 'Protected Light' reward at least once in a Match. (requires playing Heavy or Assault class Mech)



That wording is weird.

Do they mean you need to be in a Light/Medium, standing next to a Heavy/Assault.. or do you need to be the Heavy/Assault standing next to a Light/Medium?..

There's no way I earned this correctly if that's the requirement because I don't have anything but an Urbie and three Mist Lynxes, lol. The only match I've played during the Event was a Domination on Frozen City in an MLX-G. I mean I was definitely piloting like I was an assault mech but...

No, they got the 'protected' thing backward. You get protected when you're near a mech two weight classes or more heavier than you are (and engaged in combat).

Of course, maybe if there was an easy to find page, like a hypothetical one linked directly from the 'GAME' page up there which everyone can see, that defined all the scoring mechanics and you didn't have to search four years back in the patch notes to find the information, the event staff wouldn't have gotten it wrong.

If only someone had suggested this exact thing during both of the last two events that used these scoring mechanisms....

Looks like something to do before I have to had out to Montana in two days. Also Devs join in on the fun.

"In 2 matches TAG an Enemy Mech as it is killed at least once"

does not register.
I tagged 2-3 mechs while they died in two matches in a row with my TAG-laser.

While the QP parts sound possible, how can I find a unit to get the FP ones? Will be hard to get a place with just the trial mechs (and 3 CPLT - C1, C4, K2 - and a RVN-3L). Posted Image

You can do the FP stuff with just a PUG... It is going to be a lot harder to get the wins, but you'll be able to complete the FP event in a day or two.
