To clarify the win/loss: play Clan to win champion myst lynx, play IS to win 4mil cbills. All other rewards the same. The mauler does not exist.

Hi Matt,


We desperately need balancing mechanisms to even out player experience between IS/Clan, a handicap system to let a meta team fight a pug team where both sides have fun, and events that can dynamically adjust to imbalances to make the final result uncertain.

Sound hard? All 3 can be accomplished in 1 month using ideas posted at the threads
https://mwomercs.com...rovement-ideas/
https://mwomercs.com...vent-sound-fun/

1) change MC reward to be maximized when strength is balanced, current rewards encourage imbalance and stacking

2) use a pilot BV system to allow players to see relative strengths of teams and take voluntary handicaps

3) design events that can throw curve balls that will make the fight closer


Lets take steps to improve FP one small step at a time,

Sincerely,
The Community

If the IS Side is victorious they receive their Victory rewards and the specified planets
The Clan Side would receive the Defeat rewards.
vice versa if the Clan side is victorious.

The player must complete the objective to be eligible for either Victory or defeat rewards.

Why in the world would rewards be locked into specific (not to mention the LEAST populated one) faction is beyond me.
The event designing has hit the newest low and I thought it was literally impossible to make it worse after the "win each mode in FP where the only mode you get is Siege"

Should be good, enjoy the new events/dailies. Can we call them that yet? So we only get the mech if the faction wins the Planet? Well lets hope all the good players are on the IS side... Still 4mill for a loss is not terrible lol.

Clarifications:

So can mercenaries, other IS loyalists, and other clans play as well?

If I earn 150 match score three times, and do so 100 times (3*100=300 games) do I get the 3x reward 100 times? Not that anyone will play that much...

If not, does the 100 mean it can only be claimed 100 times? I'm assuming not but hey.

I don't see win as part of the conditions for "Spoils of War" on the web page, is a win required?

I'm still a bit lost about Spoils of War rewards. Is it:
1) You play 12 matches with needed score, and you will be rewarded once, dependant on outcome of event;
or
2) You win 12 matches with needed score and get one reward. You lose another 12 matches, and get the other reward.

?

Plenty of C-Bills to be won!
9 Million if you earn above 150 match score in 12 matches even if you lose
The only Loyalist rewards are Customization Content.

I am listening to your feedback guys really trying to make the events fun.
I am looking forward to making some Clan VS Clan events and IS vs IS events in the near future.

Looks like the Web page isn't showing the criteria for Win/Loss we will fix that asap.

certain points .loyalist or mercenary award or even freelancer ?? spoils of war ? 10000 100 times WTF

Nice to finally see a decent faction-based event, but really, the Smoke Jag award should be an Ebon Jag, or at least the OP LMG variant of the Myst Lynx.

I am curious, though, what makes a "Kurita" Mauler and "Smoke Jaguar" Myst Lynx different from a regular Mauler or Myst Lynx?

Matt, just to clarify, does Scouting count for the 3, 6, 9, and 12 match thingie?
Also, Tournament Support Package, will it do anything for this event? (Also does it do anything for the previous Mechtober event?)

So many new players who are not used to have to read the fine print will play FP and at the end realise only the Clan get a new mech. After the slaughtering, the exodus. yet again.

Im all for faction locked reward, DO reward loyalist, maybe THEY should get a mech like the favorite mech of their faction.
But victory locked reward are shity because you need rewards to make people play fp and if you put it so clearly out of reach then it defeat the purpose.

Given the sale value of the MX90 and MLX, I think PGI over-estimates the "worth" of a champ mech. MX90 & mech bay for IS, mechbay & 3mil for Clan.

In any case it's still good to see a FP event like this.
