I like all the folks losing their apparently feeble minds over the lack of players in FP.... during an event, which began on a thursday... when most players have school, work, etc.... to go to the following day. Don't come on during a weekday and expect record #s of active players to be in the queues and then throw a tantrum when they're not.

The issue is when FW was first introduced and for its first couple of years (before it was decided to "reduce buckets" to fix everything) we could see the population and you could make a call as a player or unit to drop or not to drop. Now you cant see ahahhah....you could be 1 player short from forming or 11 players short and you cant see and have to sit there. They need to provide transparency again so people can see the numbers.

This FP system might have worked if there wasn`t a bloody QP event going on simultaneously. Sometimes I really don`t know if there is even one person at PGI who actually knows its own game.

Yeah this is a very valid post for two reasons. We know from historical running of the events that an event in one area will strip an event in another area. Events work the best when its only QP or FP because it incentives the population to concentrate in one format giving you the expanded population for a period of time.

Five scout matches resulting in four loot bags in the past hour.

Great idea for an event. Clan vrs Clan and IS vrs IS.. However, this event splits the FP community even more into small buckets. It is already hard enough to get matches sometimes.

With so many different conflicts and planets it thins the matchmaking.

Does this event mean there will be 7 active faction play buckets running all at the same time?

I hope it does.


good luck getting a match though. I tried last night and couldn't. They are supposed to be changing it to an IS vs Clan event... again. Some clanners don't like going against equal mechs even though clans always fought against each other they can have a variant of Davion vs steiner and Jade Falcon vs Wolf.

Another fifty minutes...5 more scout matches and 3 more loot bags. Total is up to 22 loot bags all via scout matches.

There should be something like special event factions. For an event time every player can join one of these event factions without leaving his unit or FP faction. Similar to previous Battle for Luthien event, where playerbase majority had been mostly out of loyalty part. It seems there is not enough players to fill in the faction event, so I think it would be better to separate FP and event parts.


it was a slight improvement since this event was loyalists and mercs signed with a house but there aren't enough players for a 12v12 match at certain times of the day. Faction play is dying out. look at the number of ties in war history. only once a day are there enough people playing FP to generate the win conditions. not enough IS people are playing. Battle for Luthien should by lore been only for smoke jaguar and Kurita not IS vs Clan. They should go with an event based on IS vs IS and clan vs Clan. both sides fight on a more or less even battlefield

I'm sorry, I know everyone has been saying to make this event 2 buckets (clan vs clan and IS vs IS) but even that is a terrible idea. There merely isn't enough population.

Just make it so that once a group forms a lobby, they can drop against either clan or IS. Example being 12 IS end up randomly forming after searching - they can drop into a clan vs IS OR IS vs IS match. Same goes for clans.

That way its only one bucket that still maintains the civil war theme, and will actually lead to faster matches because you end up doubling the opponent pool for both sides.


some people don't like FP because the tech base is unequal. Clan mechs have lighter, hotter weapons, that can shoot at longer ranges than IS. the idea an all IS 12 man going against another IS group was an attempt to get more people into FP since IS mechs all have the same weapon ranges and performance baseline(skill tree alterations not included).

Cant get a single faction drop against Wolf. How is a pilot suppose to get 150 for a free mech? bleh.


you only need 50 matches in FP to get a mech and 100 in QP

Ill just quite myself for all the players not able to get an IS vs IS or Clan vs Clan faction play match for this event. You need to do this, so that you will drop on the corect planet. Otherwise you will continue dropping the normal Clan vs IS games.


IS vs clan is suspended for duration of this event. only the special matches are running. you do need to select the right one.

Am I the only one who considers it quite hilarious that you, me and basically everyone else knows and agrees upon this, except the few lost souls in PGIs event-planner dungeon? I mean, seriously, it's not rocket science to figure things like this out.

if i sell the standard mech from grand prize will i keep the mech bay?

You will get more bang for your "bucks" if you take one of the (S) variant mechs (if you didn't already have it) and selling your old 4p or Stormcrow.

That way you will still have that mech, a free mech bay and the few cbills from the sale. .. but you will also have a cbill earner as a bonus.
