" Mode Challenge Frustration Compensation
  • Anyone who obtained more than 5 Victories in any FP mode will receive an additional 100 MC and 2 Million C-BIlls "


Knew it would probably happen but still decided not to bother with event because unlike most people who only realised while doing it what was shown was rediculous random luck i could see that before starting it, so because made decision based on information available miss out on bonus geegee =-) why do these whiners get special treatment and i dont ? =p =)

I've got 3 Conquest wins and 3 Seige wins, with 2 Scout wins thrown in. And no sign of the backup prize. Am I alone in this?

EDIT: Or am I reading the Frustration prize wrong? Do you need 5 wins in any _single_ FP game type? I've got more than 5 in total, not in one mode.

I think I"m still emailing Support today for clarification.


5 combined wins any mode...scouting, siege, whatever. Also it seems to be not exempt (contrary to what's written) from the tourney pack doubling, because I got double 100MC/2million payouts on all my accounts. One had 6 wins scouting & 5 wins siege. Another had at most 3 wins in any of the modes alone but combined was 10 wins.

OK, my fellow Players...

Could you please tell us, . What the rewards and tasks are..

(Even a picture would be enough..)

Thanks!

Well, PGI didn't post anything, but a Discussion Thread got started anyway. Here's a link to it...

"New Event Mectoberfest" @ https://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/257985-new-event-mectoberfest/

...and I'll leave you to enjoy getting into the discussion. :D

People got the compensation and you didn't because they tried and you didn't.

I just got the Frustration Prize Injection. So... no clue, could have just been slow.

Thank you for the compensation...I guess.

But you know what would have been even better?
ANY reaction to the large number of complaints while the event was still running.
Something like:
"Sorry for the trouble, but we can't change the requirements for this part of the event because (enter reason here). We will have some compensation for all who reach the optional requirements and will make sure to prevent events based on random map selection in the future."

But all we get is silence. And no word that PGI will pay more attention to the effect of random factors on event requirements.

I didn't take that long to get the mode challenges done... Took maybe half that, as a pug IS. If you did pug clan or group clan, should be getting it alot faster.

So it's okay that you had to play for 26 1/2 hours? I am glad you are happy with the results, but from what I have been hearing they are not reflective of the larger whole. I won my first conquest match that was available but it was something like my 40th match, I had at least 2-4 wins of the other types and 12 siege wins at that point. Also clan does not get instant drops, more like 10-20 minute wait times due to population imbalance(not asking for sympathy for the waits, I am sure it's still faster due to W/L.)

The problem is that they said that before when they required mode drop wins in events before.... they don't follow through. At least there was no mode voting to prevent you from getting the match when it finally happened.
