First post after OP is mine, exactly asking for this. I don't know why they have not provided sound sample, usually they post warhorns to SoundCloud.


I see,

Unrelated but how is playing in 3D?

Don't think it is bad, but I guess it should better say "Kill secured" not "Kill confirmed". That would be hilarious =)

Also, I think the warhorns will sound much better, if words will be spoken faster and with a bit more passion and loudness, or at least with smaller gap between them. mb PGI can consider some of this.

A must for me, like 95% of games I play. I enjoy seeing depth and MWO could have used a bit more. Unfortunatly it's not adjustable with usual keys.

Went to cinema yesterday evening with my both 12yo daughters to watch Valerian in 3D, because of course I only go to cinema to watch movies in 3D, and they like it. It was a conversion and not built in 3D but it was ok.

So I wrote to the tech-support and now it is clearly stated that the TAG-kill is awarded when the enemy is killed by a lock-on weapon.
Meaning: I have to invest about 1.6M CB into my stormcrow to get streaks and TAG and do it myself. I won't waste days of playtime hoping that some too-stupid-to-aim-lurmtard kills the target I tagged for him.
Yet another goal that is more reliant on other players than on yourself. And I thought they learned from the "kill a fuelcell-carrier" desaster.

wow the whining... It took me 1 match to complete, brang my HBK-4J and made 2 kills in 2 matches while TAG was on target. Simple as that. Can't be easier and quicker!

edit: added "in 2 matches" in previous sentence.

Yeah. When I bring LRMs I bring my own TAG if I can. If I can't TAG it, I am too far away for effective LRMs.

you are clearly lying, because:

First - event page says "In 2 matches TAG an Enemy Mech"
2 matches, you see?

Second - I played 1 battle and got 2 TAG kills in it and have only 1 point yet.

Oh true, in 2 matches sorry. I will edit post to avoid confusion, thanks for pointing that out!

No matter what, it was quickly done.

I don't say it is hard. I just have to invest dearly needed CB to complete something that I just can't left uncompleted (voices in my head).

EDIT: correction of the quoted post

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.

You need to be tagging whilst the enemy is also under missile lock, whilst the killing shot is done, you cannot lift you tag until the deed is done

Got my tag kills finally. Here's how I did it: played a clan mech that has ATMs, legged a light mech with my other weapons, tagged and locked it, then killed it with the ATMs. Repeated process in another game. You must press R, tag, and kill with missiles.

Since PGI is not replying, I've extracted the 2 retro warhorn soundclips.

Very nice event idea and prices.

But after reading other entries I think the TAG-condition is really bugged.
Killed a Nova with nothing but Streaks, got the Killing Blow but it was not registered.

While I can't say something about streaks - my only mech with ssrm doesn't have a tag - I got the tag kills with my CPLT-C1, using LRMs and a tag laser.

I finally got my first TAG-kill with the streakcrow and light-TAG. Will see if it registers.

If you get the tag kill on the scoreboard at the end of the match, it will register.

For me a LIGHT TAG kill while missile locked by my ATM didnt register :-(
