Awesome rewards!

Some notes...

"Protected Light" and "Protected Medium" do not require you to be in a Heavy or Assault mech. They require you to be in a Light and Medium mech respectively.

Also, Teamwork 10,000 damage challenge is bugged-it awards the prize at 1,000 damage (on the prize listing board...board tracker WAS bugged. Seems to be fixed now).

Actually it's the Damage Dealer Challenge has a few bugs with it. It's Table is incorrectly titled. And the 'Achieve 10,000 Damage Dealt' is bugged saying 5 of 5 but my 'Achieve the Damage Dealer Goals' is still 2 of 3.

Achieve 10,000 damage in each match for 5 matches? That's gonna be tough in a Spider.

This is not where you would report bugs to.

Though with how... awkwardly phrased most of it is, I am not surprised there are bugs.

Same for me.

Additionally, the "In 2 matches TAG an Enemy Mech as it is killed at least once" challenge appears to be bugged or incorrectly described. I've gotten something like 10-12 kills of my own under those conditions since I started playing for the event, and more than that on assists.

Something else...

Teamwork Challenge tracker says I have 1 complete, but two events are checked green...

Did you get "TAG Kill" notifications?

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...

ATTENTION. Photobucked doesn't work like it used to, find a better image hosting service.

Damage Dealer Goals are met (and all three green checked), yet it only counts two for the warhorn... seems broken, need some help.

And yes, it's been hours. Thank you.

The sosial event gives nice view about the popularity of QP vs FP. Currently its (rounded) 7000 kills in FP to 25000 kills in QP. And the event has been going on about 12 hours.


I like how the premium time reward is so tied to scouting, so you can choose when you get it.

Great event, thanks.

Those walkie talkie warhorns are exactly the kind of warhorn I'd actually want to use!

I have the same problem as he, I don't think I got the TAG Kill notification, but I am shure I met the requirements.

TAG Kill:
  • The user is tagging the target.
  • The target gets destroyed WHILE being TAGed.

Last time this was part of an event they incorrectly described it and required more of them.

I believe it only counts if an ally gets the kill with a lock on weapon. So pug it up and hope for LRM potato's on your own team.

Another Event with at least one requirement that's been pushed beyond reasonability... If it weren't for the state of mind that I'm in right now, I might have been ignoring this. -_-


As for this...

Sounds to me like something PGI has set up to require someone TAG'ing while someone else LRMs them to death. And everyone wanted LRMs nerfed? I think you (and a truckload of other people) need to yell at PGI for the BaseLine LRM Range to be returned to 950 Meters, because people don't have enough reach in general with LRMs to help make that succeed. <_<

Wished the FP-world would be an engaging battle ground where the real story was felt and played.

You could SSRM people to death, regardless of any LRMs while benefitting from the TAG... or just kill them with whatever other weapon you happen to be carrying. LRMs absolutely not required. Only a TAG. And no, LRMs do not need to have their base range returned nowhere, they are useless at that range anyway.

Doesn't really feel like "Warfare", does it? Seems like "Unreal Tournament 2004" and "Unreal Tournament 3" did a better job in that regard. :(

So basically, if I want that reward, I have to put streaks and tag on my stormcrow and do it myself? Otherwise that just eats time and nerves.
