Well this was an easy event. Open page.
"Objective completed, acquire a thousand damage."
"redeem."

....Huh. I haven't even played today.

------

Only 5 hours left to accomplish it though, despite having just been announced.

I like this event, cockpit items and MC for something super easy. I'll be doing this on the main and alt accounts. Though as already mentiuoned, this should have been posted when the event started, not 12+ hours after the fact.

There's only a few hours after the announcement, because the clock is set to UTC. It may be a good idea to have it switched to PST.

Welp that explains how I already achieved it.
Side note: Apparently I had first comment and still don't feel the compulsion to edit it to say first.

Thanks Matt... You know, this would be a good regular thing for the start of every "surprise event" in the future too...

Perhaps, I am not the only one who hates the "What???.. There is an event going on??!!"" feeling...

Thank you for starting this "Advent Calendar"-style Event. I'll admit, 'Daily' things are not exactly my kind of Event, but the Challenges versus the Time Limits versus the Rewards look rather reasonable. Now to hope those "Solo Kill" Challenges don't get people mad, right? Heck, if someone were to ask me for a rating, I think I would give it...

9.91/10

...right now. My only suggestion would be to swap the "1 Solo Kill" Requirement for "5 Savior Kills" on that type of Challenge, in order to severely encourage Teamwork through keeping each other alive in battle, while still being aggressive against the enemy. It more or less gets rid of the whole 'Glory Hog' thing that causes Teammates to be shot in the back because they jumped in front of others. :D

That said, I'm going to quote myself...

Now, I've got to ask... Are we going to have a "Winter Holiday Loot Bag Event"? Perhaps with a "Pick-A-Prize" attached? Maybe throw in a logo with an Urbie done up in Red & White with the Dazzle Pattern, kind of like a tasty Candy Cane? Or perhaps a logo with an "Atlas in Red & Commando in Green" combo, like Santa and their small Elves? Posted Image

...because while I know the final Artwork and Event Ideas used are up to you, I would like to know what you think of these ideas. Maybe I've forgotten that you already used some or all, which might scratch it out from reuse? Also, I remember hearing people saying Double Loot Bags should be given for completing 'Invasion Queue Matches'... What's your opinion of that idea? :)

Welp that explains how I already achieved it.

I had to trip on it before it got an Updated Image or News Post. Of course, then I panicked, lost some needed sleep, and blew through it in four matches. Unfortunately, I was finally forced to use LRMs (which frankly suck right now... they need a Range Buff to make sure that Snipers aren't safe from their opponents) and move to the back battle line (Somehow getting a kill on the enemy, too?) to get it done, all because nobody wanted to help attack. I had finally become rather sick of dying while I had brought my best to battle with. Damned 'scared potatoes'... Get a lead, but somehow get abandoned by teammates that won't read their bloody HUDs, while I'm on the frontline? It makes me soooooooo angry that I'm almost going 'volcano' here. Thank goodness we're not on Terra Therma... I might accidentally overheat to death! <_<

LOL!!! Well, you ARE "The Welcoming Committee", after all! Who needs to say "First!" when they're that? :lol:

Free MCs plus a cockpit item for basically playing the game. Sounds good to me.

LMAO, I wonder if this was intentional.

Achieve 1,000 damage in QP events (not too hard, it's actually a good start to an event month)

50 MC (awesome!)
