Do we get double bonuses with the Tournament Supporter pack still?

Edit:
I really don't understand why people are complaining about the solo kills?? 99% sure that these will be completable in scouting and not just Invasion as the in game tracker specifies Faction Play not invasion. So outta 48 Mechs in a match it is sooo easy to get a couple solo kill with just about any weight class. But if you can complete the light and medium portions in Scouting where it is even easier, then you just have to complete the heavy and assaults in Invasion modes. And solo kills in a heavy or Assault are not very difficult if you build isn't ****.

I will say thou that last challenge though is messed up. I feel like Invasion is heavily weighted to siege and I barely see the other modes. And you have to win a match in each type....... Yeah nope, people are gonna get really really annoyed with that challenge.

Maybe split that last challenge in 2. Win 10 Faction play matches(invasion or scouting or 5 of both), Make that one 100MC and the Rocket Girl. Then make the 2nd part to finish 1 of each of the game types and that is worth 100MC and the dropship

The first 4 challenges don't need to be done in FP, do they?
Because the challenge name is a bit misleading.

Hmm... Things look rather interesting to me... Enticing, too... Provided nothing gets in my way of doing this Event, I might actually be able to pull it off. :)

I dont understand the excitement..... All thats good in the rewards is the MC.... 600 total if u clear all the hurdles..... the rest is just recycled store items.... 2 are ancient and the retro items I thought were NEW never to be seen again outside of the event they were introduced in? At the very least their UBER-special nature or rarity was drummed up.

I'll put the 600MC to mech bays meh....

EDIT:

Ya I just scrolled thru the previous events.... the retros were offered TWO events ago...the Alpha Strike Event

From the events page:

"Some of the Coolest, most unique, Warhorns We have even made are up for grabs!"

"Retro Arcade (Warhorn)
Posted Image
(Event / Promo item! Not available in store)"

"Retro Handheld (Warhorn)
Posted Image
(Event / Promo item! Not available in store)"

Seriously? wow.....weak tea guys. I just love getting duplicates of sub par items....ESPECIALLY ones that are drummed up to be super rare to get u to jump thru hoops! Colours and patterns would even have been better, at least those are more flexible and in my opinion more useful.

So can the first two be done in scouting?
Also, why is this event not showing up in the spiffy, new and super cool in-game event thingie?
Additionally, do tournament supporters get double?

This event looks pretty good...wait do I have to play FP to complete it? Sorry but as long as FP is still full of spawn camping, 12 mans vs solo/pugs and ghost drops I think I'll pass.

I would assume scouting would work but clarification would have been nice. Guess we'll soon find out about both.

Nice event, but it sucks that you did not keep the coconut monkey exclusive and rare for us closed beta people who got it from the PC-Gamer mag (yes I know some people cheated and used the code generator that was available online for a long time).

The PC-Gamer mag with the code was damn near impossible to find a legitimate copy of for years.

Seems very desperate of them to start offering so much MC for a FP event Posted Image. Did they previously offer MC (I skip all FC events...)?

Sadly 600MC not going to encourage and convince a lot of people that dislike FP to play the FP event (like me).

Tbh, I'd rather buy a 7 dollar mc pack and play QP than have to deal with being a solo in FP for 600 mc. Just my opinion, if any of these include scouting I will happily change my mind. (Haven't looked on our new super fawncy in game event log yet.)

Sorry, they are pretty clear that they must be done in FP.

I'd rather spend $7.00 and save me the frustration and time of having 30 minute Waffle Stomps, piss poor attitudes when people lose on voip, players just playing all lights on a drop deck to get it done and countless games of just bad games.. I might do the scouting event as it can be done VERY quick and kinda easy to get done.

Not enough of a food pellet to deal with the above.

How many times have I encouraged PGI to avoid tying challenge requirements to specific map modes, on the off-chance that we actually don't get a mode, like Assault, or Siege, or Incursion?

Territorial Control Challenge anyone?

Same. The previous event finally started showing up yesterday, AFTER the event had ended. Now nothing shows up again, that the new event was announced..
