ok so first drop after event start with a mixed Clan-group could start a FW game, but they dropped against IS... soo inconclusive regarding my question, but overall obviously bugged...

Not to complain but, it should probably be isvis and clanvclan, ignore factions.
While the idea is cool. the population just isnt there.

If quickplay didnt exist, itd work, but it does :P

Well, another unachievable grand prize unless you throw money at them, don't have a job, or any responsibilities what so ever. 150 matches with, say, an average time of 10mins to find a match and play it, equals 1500 mins. Divided by 60, means this will take a minimum of 25 hours to complete. This doesn't account for the 50 of those matches that are FP which automatically doubles the time it takes to get and play a match. To those with money and or time, Have fun.

Just for the guys who dont know.
You need to select the correct planet to drop for the event part.
To do this, go to the event tab ingame and select your faction matchup (where you see the rewards) and press the blue button marked "Go now" at the bottom right.
That way you will go to the correct match up of IS vs IS or clan vs clan immediately.

This event is very much a hybrid of the old event system and the new event system with Prizes everywhere!


Best from both worlds. Its great as always to have something like this. Keep it as such with some fine tuning like others have suggested. Like increasing loot bag rewards for Faction play, since it takes longer to get a match, not as many play that mode (might change now) as QP etc

Hey Guys

So there is the possibility of getting Clan vs IS until 2 pm this afternoon when the battle window changes and the Main Faction Play conflict will be turned off.

Also, we are adding 2 more Mechs to the Pick a Prize options.
  • Griffin GRF-2N and a mech Bay (Standard Mech)
  • Nova NVA-PRIME and a mech Bay (Standard Mech)
Please Note
  • The original 2 Mechs (HBK and SCR) are (S) with a 30% C-Bill Boost but they are not "sellable"
  • The 2 new Mechs (GRF and NVA) are Standard Variants and you can sell them Back for C-BIlls
Choose wisely

I like this Idea! I will see if we can make that change for Stocking Stuffer 2017!

Still not random?

Why not 2 random and other 2 the way you want?

Currently trying to get a scouting match going. In 47 minutes since the event started, I got 1 match in scouting and 1 ghost unattested drop win. Matt, anyway we can just make clans factions go into a free for all battle Royale?

Also, the populations you have of each faction displayed in the game, does your count include loyalist players that stopped playing this game? I feel your numbers in populations in each faction is made alot bigger than they really are.

wow, who cares about the grand prize?!? [xept those whiny steam pack owners from first two pages of this thread]
Keep reading PGI: ppl wonder if they can get an actual FW match during the event and not only ghost drops.

Assuming FW survives till the next Halloween ofc Posted Image

I dont like to be the messenger, but the event is going to be a disaster.....

last cw event was 1 bucket of ~5k vs ~5k players

now we have 6 buckets of ~800 vs ~800 players

spread over all time zones worldwide and the whole event duration

Unfortunately the number of active players are uneven for the factions....

Player Numbers from Battle for Luthian and pairing for trick or treat....

Good luck everybody getting 150matches. Posted Image

I expect a fix not later than Monday. Posted Image

Sorry but even though I spend quite a bit i am not going to play the remaider of the games after the application of the bonus. A flat 10 to 20 games played is about all the time I have and to get what amounts to a never to be played mech isn't worth it.

Can clans use crows for scouting on this event or its still locked because OP?


The events do not change the baseline mechanics of the FW mode, which include the drop tonnage limits for the respective tech bases. Clan scouting decks are limited to 50 tons and 240 tons in invasion. Thus... no crows in scouting.

Its actually currently 8 buckets... 7 for the event specific same tech faction vs faction events and also the any IS vs any clan bucket is still there, and I worry many players WON'T think to click thru the faction event details list in the game UI to find the one for their respective faction v faction bucket and will be lazy and just click "fight there" on the top bucket which is the IS vs Clan one until it is turned off in a bit over 3 hours from now.
